Dualism, semi-monistic, monists, advaitists
In our family, people that are dualistic-minded – I and thou – we allow them to follow dualism. People that are semi-monistic – they believe that we are just the branches of the tree – we teach them according to what they believe. Then there are the monists, the advaitists, who believe that I and my Father are one, I am Divine, I am it all.
From dualism to non-dualism
A person progresses from dualism to non-dualism to monism. In the beginning, dualism is required where you acknowledge a higher force than yourself, and you pray to that higher force. Then in non-dualism, you find yourself as a part of Him, like the branches are a part of the tree. Then in the final stages, you say, “I am the tree.”
The teachings I give out to the world have all these aspects. I do not deny anyone’s belief. I do not condemn and neither condone. Follow the path best suited to your temperament.
