PostSubject: Dualistic Thinking   Tue Feb 16, 2010 12:19 pm

Dualistic Thinking

It is our thought process, that process by which we think, that can go about to limit our understanding of the world around us. Regardless of the information that might present itself to us, our thought process determines whether or not we even entertain the information with which we are presented.

Our thought process (by way of our prior baseline decisions) acts as a filter, or ‘Gatekeeper’ that determines which information enters and which information does not enter.

Our philosophical framework or worldview, based upon prior determinations, decides what we will or are able to entertain. Information is entertained, integrated and implemented or put into action, based in large part upon our long-held worldview.

Oftentimes we think we are reasoning things out logically, when in reality what we are really doing is trying to fit things within our existing worldview or belief system.

For the most part, we have been continually programmed for dualistic thinking by our society, teachers, parents, and of all those in authority over us, as well as our religious beliefs. Dualistic thinking gives us only two choices - good or bad, right or wrong, friends or foes. This is simply a black and white dualistic mentality that does not allow for the finer shades, the rainbow of colors which exist throughout the universe.

I think it's important to note here, that we have all come by this honestly, that is to say, we have all been pigeonholed into this way of dualistic thinking from our very birth. It is a birthright which no longer serves a legitimate purpose.

Coming to everything one encounters without any preconceived notions whatsoever, would seem to be ideal. Good or bad, right or wrong, friend or foe - why is it that we need to continually pigeonhole everything we encounter into such narrow parameters?

Better yet, why would we want to think along the lines of such narrow lines or parameters? It’s rather like asking us to see in only one of two colors - black or white, when one can take in all of the colors of the rainbow.

Coming to anything which we have chosen to entertain or which lies before us, without prejudice or or preconceived notions of any kind would seem to be the best option.

The first step then, is to realize that there is indeed a ‘process’ at work here in all of us, and that the way in which we think is not a random, unknown or unidentifiable process.

Our thought process is simply that – 'our thought process’ – uniquely and individually our own.

So, where then does this leave us?

Our salvation in all of this comes by way of ‘The Knowing’ – we need only become aware of the process at work within all of us, so that we may take it into account as we approach those things that have yet to be integrated into our belief system, philosophical framework, or worldview.

Cheers,
Jocariah

We take things apart to understand them (dualism) and put them back together to make them work (singularity/ unity).
