Hsin Shin Ming: “60. To swiftly accord with that, only express non-duality.”

Hsin Shin Ming: “60. To swiftly accord with that, only express non-duality.”

‘That’ means the true-Self or Emptiness. ‘To accord with that’ means to realise the true-Self. ‘Only express non-duality’ means ‘You should know that all I say is only to express non-duality’. Strictly speaking, saying that we have to do something in order to accord with the true-Self is far from being a correct expression because we are already non-duality as the true-Self. Whatever you do; speak or walk, see or hear, love or hate, not just the subject but also the object are all from the same root, the true-Self. Even this scripture is also from the same root. Enlightenment is to realise that we are non-duality as the true-Self, not to unify two separate different things. So, ancient masters would say, “You are wrong if you do anything” when asked what they should do to accord with the true-Self. This means that we are wrong if we make even a little effort to accord with the true-Self while unaware that we are the true-Self.
