Pure non-duality is at the heart of the teachings of A Course in Miracles. But what exactly is it? Very simply it is the belief that everything is God; there is no God and us, there is simply God, and we, as eternal spirit created by Him, are one with Him. There is no subject or object, no you or me, no yin or yang and no heaven or hell. There is just God and his creations, which are spirit. There is just total oneness; anything else is an illusion.
Yet, we do perceive duality in this world. We perceive time and space, male and female, up and down, hot and cold, good and bad, etc. But ACIM tells us that all this has just been projected out of our minds, and is unreal. It exists only in the mental plane. Everything that is finite, limited, transient and subject to change is an illusion or a dream.
In Chapter 6 of the Text, Jesus emphasises, “…You cannot be anywhere God did not put you, and God created you as part of Him. That is both where you are and what you are. It is completely unalterable. It is total inclusion. You cannot change it now or ever. It is forever true. It is not a belief, but a Fact…” T97. That sums up non-duality brilliantly.
