LONG LIVE DUALITY THE TEN THOUSAND THINGS AND…

LONG LIVE DUALITY, THE TEN THOUSAND THINGS AND CONCEPTS

I laughed with delight when I came across the quotation below said to be from Chuang Tzu – in Tales From the Tao by Solala Towler.

Why?

Because there are so many who teach nonduality and they seem negative or contemptuous of the glorious world of duality. For me the old master nails the fact that humans fly with two wings – one of duality, one of nonduality.

“Where can I find a man who has forgotten words?

I would like to have a word with him.” – Chuang Tzu

Two other masters have said something similar’

The great Master Dogen said
“To study the Buddha Way is to study the self,
to study the self is to forget the self, and
to forget the self is to be enlightened by the ten thousand things.”
To be enlightened by the ten thousand things is to recognize the unity of the self and the ten thousand things.

“Concepts are delicious snacks with which we try to alleviate our amazement.” (A J Heschel)

Now I write, teach & coach mainly about interfaith as inter-spirituality - and how we can grow closer to our True Self. . As anyone who knows anything about IPF will realize my energy is curtailed - so I am concentrating primarily on 'inter-spirituality'. . In the past I would have said that: . 1) I run courses and give talks at conferences and in universities and colleges in the UK, China, USA, Canada, Scandinavia etc. . 2) I provide materials, outlines and lessons for Schools. . 3) My range of interests include personal development, learning and teaching, photography and film, the arts generally, spirituality and educational practice and theory. . 4) At the same time I continue developing the human-centred studies SunWALK PDS (People Development System) - a whole-person, high-achievement model for individuals, and for use in, NGOs, schools and other organizations. . 5) The key question that continues to animate me and my work remains, "What is it to be fully and positively human?" . Contact me via onesummit AT gmail DOT com (replace At with@ etc.). . All good wishes Roger (Dr Roger Prentice) . For those interested; My first degree is in English and Education. My masters is in Adult and Community Education. My doctorate presented a new holistic meta-model of education called SunWALK.
