There are dichotomies that we set up in our minds that separate one thing from another. They create the structures by which we come to believe in duality.

spiritual versus -- physical, practical
sacred versus -- secular, mundane, ordinary
inner versus -- outer life

These dichotomies are ways of thinking. They are not real. They are categories of thought - habitual ways of perceiving.

All words create dichotomies. All words speak something into existence and leave something else out. Nevertheless, we need to find the words that create unity - not only the unity of love and of brotherhood, but the unity of a seamless life in which we hold all things as part of the Oneness.

We need to find the mind of a child again. The child that holds the world in wonder.
