All human problems

arise only because the basic fact of phenomenal manifestation is ignored - that the entire manifestation is merely conceptual. Nothing is created, nothing is destroyed. All questions pertaining to birth, life, death or rebirth are therefore utterly misconceived. WHAT IS is truly simple. We only make it complicated and incomprehensible by thinking and philosophizing about it.

Feelings and emotions are all based on duality. So long as they continue to dominate one's outlook, duality will continue to have a firm hold, excluding the real holiness, the wholeness that is UNICITY.
