Heaven appearing as Earth..already
At any moment we feel that we are having one experience, and yet experience always appears as a multiplicity and diversity of objects. From where does this unity of experience come from? From our true nature of awareness, the light of pure knowing. In reality, experience is a single, intimate and indivisible whole, in which neither a knower nor the known are found. All there is to experience is knowing, and it is knowing that knows this knowing: knowing knowing only knowing. The common name for this absence of duality or otherness is love or beauty.
— Rupert Spira
"Even if I were to procure just one more moment of genuine happiness, that would still be one more than nothing. Perhaps the mere fact that we are cognizant of anything at all is reason enough to celebrate life. How many other combinations of matter can do what we can? What other molecular entity possesses the capacity to laugh; to love; to ponder its own existence; to appreciate works of music, art, literature; to aspire, to hope, to dream? Even if it should turn out that we are just spiritless atoms cavorting in the void, we are still matter's paramount form, the height of its complexity, its crème de la crème—nature's chosen macromolecules. Besides, even if it should turn out that what we call happiness is nothing more than the manifestation of strictly physiological processes, do we experience it any less? Whether I'm mortal or immortal, a spiritual entity or a spiritless organic machine, are these not my experiences? Either way, am I any less me? Moreover, the mere fact that I can never know what each next moment will bring means that, as mechanical, as life might be, mine remains a wondrous and beautiful mystery."

"Elephant in the room" is a phrase often used in
speaking of some unnoticed large entity which
is in this very room. Frank McCaughey may be
on to something in using this term non duality
discussion. The elephant isn't obvious, until it is.
Perhaps it might replace the word "This, "which
has something of the same usage. (Perhaps not!)
See Frank's video in comments below.)
