Nice to meet you again too. "We should stop meeting like this" should not apply.

I know sometimes it may look like I'm spreading toads but really what I am doing is spreading flowers.

Such is the life of a flower girl.

That's a tough one to describe. Will leave you with a flower though.

I follow flowers.

I get flowers and give flowers leaving a touch of myself on each one.

I suspect there is no one who knows anything about it.

Quote:
Duality suggests opposite poles that exist in space but there is no such thing as “space” in non-duality. The laws of physics do not apply to non-duality. There is no up or down in infinity and non-duality is the one pervasive wholeness of infinity.

There are no gaps in infinity; we live every moment and have our being in the midst of infinity. In my opinion, infinity is the absence of space as all space is occupied by omnipresent divinity, and eternity is the absence of time; because where there is no space there can be no such thing as “time.”

The concept of duality requires both time and space. The nature of opposite poles infers space and where there is space, or distance, there is time. When we are still inside and cease all movement within ourselves we can experience eternity and infinity; we can experience non-duality.

In purely logical terms, a real duality can't be defined because the relationship is singular, and therefore 'immeasurable'.

Quote:
Eternity and infinity are always present in the here and now; they overlap and permeate duality but are not opposite to it. Duality is an illusion created by non-duality; all things are created by non-duality. Duality can disappear and no longer exist but non-duality is permanent and will always exist. Without non-duality duality would not exist.

There is no such thing as “nothing” because while the word “nothing” actually means “no-thing,” and things can be framed or they have boundaries and borders, divine presence has no boundaries or boarders and is omnipresent, that is to say everywhere. Further, non-duality is not a “thing” but duality is definitely a thing. Is the river the opposite of the ocean? Oceans create rivers and rivers flow back to the ocean.

I was perhaps thinking a bit one-dimensionally. :P

I realize now that the witness and the witnessed is still a duality within nonduality.

Well, strictly speaking, a 'duality', in entailing but a singular relationship, is one dimensional (though that is only one of the possibilities, and we can't actually have a duality in isolation)

I like the idea about resting in nothingness, and let oneness emerge from there... at least I no longer believe I have any free will... it seems that I have a True Nature, and it unfolds whether or not I participate... when I struggle I find myself at odds with duality... when I participate I slip into non-duality...

Indeed. There no reasonable way to discern a single 'entity' from two 'entities', so we can only regard these as a single 'phenemona' which entails at once various possibilities. Such possibilities can be represented separately, but the 'phenomena' entailing them cannot be represented.

I once sang the gayatri mantra for an hour to a tiny pink flower bursting through between two tiles in the pavement..

Flowers are wonderful aren't they?

Flowers are wonderful! When science describes the theory of the Big Bang, I see a flower's bloom. A field without flowers is unadorned (nonduality).

Manifestation seems to carry with it the terrible twos. Children raising children, a dilemma.

Existential choice:

See the dilemma as a series of comedic errors or a tragedy of epic proportion. Either way the show goes on.
