another quote from my upcoming book:
the dualistic worldview makes the “either-or” perspective the hero of the story. it is this worldview that endorses an exclusivist approach to almost anything it comes into contact with. are you in? are you out? is this right? is that wrong? was that light? should this be dark? the worldview reduces life down to a mechanism. this worldview puts the process of discovering what it light and what is dark over the discovery itself. non-dualism invites us into the meadows and streams and away from the processes where we get to be changed by what it around us rather than trying to discover something that may not have been there in the first place.
