Duality is the nature of the MIND. Mind is always dialectical – divided into two. Being is one. The world is many. And between the two there is the divided mind – the dual mind. If we compare this phenomena with a big tree then the trunk of the tree is always one that is your being and then tree divides into two branches – that’s your mind & then the branches divides itself into thousands and thousands of other branches – that can be compared to world. So, the mind function is to always bifurcate things into two – Big & small, Yin & Yan, Man & Woman, Day & Night, Yoga & Zen, Happiness & Sorrow, God & Devil, Logic & Illogical & the same many more. Underneath this duality there is oneness – Your being – A Non-doer. This duality of mind reflects into the feeling of doer ship & the Karmas are formed – Negativity. If we move below this duality, we realize the existence of our being. The consciousness from where the whole tree came into existence. You take a prism. The white light disappears when it enters prism & different colors are formed. The white light is the beingness. Call it a God, Nirvana or Consciousness. Prism is the mind & the colors which are created forming a rainbow in the sky is the world. Our mind is also divided into two. We exist with two brains. Scientist name it as Right hemisphere & the left hemisphere. Our right brain is joined with the left hand, the left hemisphere is joined with the right hand. The right brain is illogical, intuitive, poetic, creative, irrational, imaginative, romantic, religion, myth. The left brain is logical, reasoning, rational, scientific, calculative. These two hemispheres are always in conflict. Our right brain & left brain are always in conflict & hence there is all the conflict outside us. The mistake that we do is we go on changing the outer world without changing our inner self. This duality within an individual creates all lot of problems. Either the man becomes too materialistic or he becomes reclusive – the Sanyasi. The whole science of spiritualism is to balance the two & reach the Midway – Madhya Marg what Buddha calls. Meditation is the only way to balance you from going to the extreme. These extremes are not just two poles of the same individual but they are also reason of all miseries in life. Transcending the duality of mind, is transcending yourself. Transcending this dialectical feeling of the mind is transforming yourself. Transcending this divided mind is experiencing state of No-mind & reaching the state of Zazen – sitting doing nothing. Just witnessing. ‘Sakshi’ Transcending the mind, results into Integration of your mind, body & soul a total crystallize personality – Undivided.
