Daily Dose for the Mind

A long time ago, there was only one mind, which became bored by being alone for so long. So it decided to split into two. But since the two knew they were originally one, playing together was not much fun— as if playing both sides of a chess game. So the two minds agreed to forget where they came from; they pretended not to know each other. As time passed, they also forgot about their agreement. They forgot they were actually one and the same. This is the condition of our existence.
We forget that we are originally from one mind.

When an enlightened person transcends the duality of you and me, she sees life as one long play. This is why she remains humorous and lighthearted. She plays her role but never forgets it is a performance. Life is like theater. You are assigned a role. If you don’t like the role,
keep in mind that you have the power to re-create the role you want.

      Yes indeed. According to the dualist, the mind (or the soul) is comprised of a non-physical substance, while the body is constituted of the physical substance known as matter. According to most substance dualists, mind and body are capable of causally affecting each other. This form of substance dualism is known as interactionism.

      Glad you liked the post. In the philosophy of mind, mind–body dualism denotes either the view that mental phenomena are non-physical, or that the mind and body are distinct and separable.
