Hsin Shin Ming: “61. In this non-duality nothing is different, nothing is excluded.”

Hsin Shin Ming: “61. In this non-duality nothing is different, nothing is excluded.”

Non-duality means the true-Self, Emptiness. ‘Nothing is different’ means that even though all things look, sound and feel different from each other, the essence of everything is the same as Emptiness. ‘Nothing is excluded’ means that everything is part of this non-duality, Emptiness without any exception. There are a few well known scriptures that describe this: ‘One is many, and many are one’ and ‘Emptiness is forms and forms are not different from Emptiness’. Put simply, Emptiness is many different things and many different things are not different from Emptiness.

Student: “How is everything in non-duality?”
Master: “Before your question.”
