why we forget nonduality

This nonduality, when we forget this, and we do forget this nonduality. And the reason why we forget this nonduality is several. Of course the biggest one is the habit. But this habit is created by one function. This dualistic does have a function. Because it gives a function, then we think it truly exists. This is one reason why we forget that things are not there. And also, to the certain extend, dualistic phenomena has a certain logic and order. For instance, only when you look at the mirror, only your face comes. Not like a fruit or a flower. So, this doesn’t only happen one day or two day. It has always happen, every time you look at the mirror, your face appears. So duration, duration, because it has been happening long long time. And then consensus. Everybody kind of agrees to the similar thing. All of this makes us forget nonduality and our clinging to dualistic phenomena becomes big. And remember what happens, if there is a dualistic mind, if there is a dualistic distinction, then you have mother of all the problems.
