“When the sense of distinction and separation is absent, you may call it love.” Nisargadatta Maharaj
The Sanskrit word ‘Advaita’ meaning “not two” is used to describe the non-dual or not separated state. In this state there is a merging of the subject with the object, of the perceiver with the perceived and of our physically focused mind with our higher mind.
It can feel like there is no thought in this state as our mind is calm, however it could be said that there is still thought but that as our thoughts are matching who we really are, it feels different.
From a Law of Attraction perspective there is an interdependent relationship between the more physically focused part of us and the broader, source part of us. As through living life we are exposed to new life experiences, new preferences automatically arise and this leads to the broader, source part of us expanding and becoming more. Therefore the perceiver influences the perceived or the physically focused mind influences the higher mind, but it is necessary to align with the source part of us to merge with or become what we have expanded to.
“…As the sun on rising makes the world active, so does self-awareness affect changes in the mind. In the light of calm and steady self-awareness, inner energies wake up and work miracles without any effort on your part.” Nisargadatta Maharaj
A lot of writing on the subject of oneness emphasises that through developing awareness, that all inner changes will happen automatically. Meditation through observing an object of focus is one such technique for developing awareness that brings us more into that connected space which allows for change to automatically occur.
The Law of Attraction explains that it is only contradictory beliefs that separate us from this state of oneness and gives techniques that assist in transforming our thinking to come into alignment with the broader part of ourselves and experience the feeling of oneness. As the broader, source part of ourselves is always focused positively, techniques such as making a written list of things that we appreciate or the good things about a particular situation can assist in shifting our thinking to match who we really are.
