traditions as well as teachers that were not part of traditions. So there are plenty names of teachers to find out more about.
I am 66 years old, when I was in high school I started my search for the Truth. I was raised as a Christian-- neither of my parents were real religious-- my mother thought it just would be good to send her children to go to Sunday school. A year after college I entered Union seminary but I dropped out after one month because I was reading Thomas Merton, D. T. Suzuki, Alan Watts and Jiddu Krishnamurti. I drove from New York to California to hear Krishnamurti talk in Ojai, California.
I have spent my whole life searching for the Truth. My career was as an English professor, but when I was 52 I suffered a massive stroke, I lost the ability to walk and to read. Today I walk with a cane and read around a senior level in college. I have read all the important teachers from most all the different spiritual traditions.
The ultimate truth I have found in Krishnamurti’s work. Krishnamurti hated labels, but I would agree with Michael that K was a nondualist.
The main idea in nondualism is that Reality is all One. That means on the surface we definitely see differences, but on a deeper level all life is one. Non-duality came out of the Vedic, Hinduism. Also, exist in the Western tradition in Neoplatonism founded by Plotinus who notion of "the One" had a huge influence on my life.
Michael talks about neti-neti “not this, not that.” Perhaps the most important idea in the philosophy of Nondualism which basically means that you cannot defined Truth. Every time you try to say what Truth is you are limiting it. It’s like the important Zen idea that you can point at the moon. But the map is not the territory. Non-dualism is true to me.
Sincerely, Ralph Edsell
The book could be excellent if expanded into an adequate length text.
