Where do Christianity and Nonduality meet?


"As a Christian, what we believe is that Jesus is the image of full humanity and full divinity put it together. We have non-duality at the core of the whole mystery of Christianity. We didn't develop the non-dual understanding. We didn't teach it to people. So, they had the doctrine but they didn't have the mind to know how really to understand that. So, you can see why we emphasize believe, believe it, not really experience it. They didn't know how to experience it for the most part. Except at the mystical level, the Christians mystics who got it. But, we never use the word non-dual. We needed the East to give us the word."
