This is very well put.

No pushes or pulls, likes or dislikes, cravings and aversions to create turbulence and create duality at the expense of the unitary consciousness which sees unity in diversity.

I see non-duality as saying thee is only the creator or Awareness and the "created" is just an aspect of the creator - there are not two - a creator and it's creations. It's all the creator or Awareness (and it's objects which are also Awareness.) Same with permanent. It is and it isn't!
My current "grasp" of non-duality is that everything is both real and unreal, permanent and impermanent, here and not here and it seems like a paradox that my limited mind/imagination simply cannot "get" other than to use space as a pointer.

As a more concrete example of the above, consider a coin as an analogy. One might say a coin is dualistic as it has a heads side and a tails side. Someone else may see a coin as tri-listic, having a heads, tails, and edge. But those designations are only in your/their consciousness/mind. The actuality of the coin is that it is just one (unified) coin. The coin's nature is not defined by the labels you assign to it.

Everything is dependent on everything in some way. If we anchor our world view to a belief that something won't change and is independent of other phenomena, our world becomes very unstable because we are anchoring to something that definitely will change.
A non-dualistic view avoids this because it just plainly see's the interdependence without grasping at this or that.
We should avoid having a view of consciousness that forgets its interdependence that, for me, is pure.
