In a world of binaries
Duality is something that truly interests me in many facets of life but for example in spirituality, to express being a non-dualist means to recognise duality as definable. But I was struck by your statement “freedom is only freeing when the (perceived) threat of containment forebodingly lurks.” Freedom...another favourite of mine that I particularly explore as ‘sovereignty’ - I’m not sure I agree that to feel ‘freeing’, containment must lurk...? I don’t disagree exactly - it’s something I wish to consider further. If I think on sovereignty, I see it as a state of being that is ‘natural’ in terms of at the point of realisation - to ‘feel’ it does not necessarily have to match the material reality.
Fascinating area for me to think further on this. Personally I totally accept dualism as a concept but feel out of step with this belief amongst many other people.
"every role is defined by an antithetical otherness." I never really thought about it all this way. Beautiful post today. The writing itself is an example of what you're talking about, the gently lifted gossamer.
Dueling with imaginary ‘Duality’! A erroneous way of thinking.
Words fail. They INVITE such primitive thinking
