dividing and separation

Amrita's hand smallerOur minds are generally busy dividing experience into the particular; this is the mind’s nature. We cannot expect our minds to stop particularizing. They won’t! However, this kind of division is very different from creating separation, and this is an important distinction to understand.

Look at your hand, for example. You see, most likely–although not on my left hand–five individual fingers, all attached to the same hand. They move independently of one another, and yet, the fingers are not separate from the hand, are not separate from the body, are not separate from all that nourishes them.

We may simply notice the particular, yet rest in the not-twoness that is, and is evermore.

Both-and.
