Our problem is our Classical Logic, which is the logic of thought. It is difficult to understand believing we are fixed individual and everything is what it is. This Law of Identity is the foundation of our scientific world view and our common sense: A is A and cannot be B at the same time. This computer is a computer. It can’t be a dog at the same time, unless I’m in a dream, then Alice In Wonderland like, the computer could suddenly turn into a dog and my fingers would be scratching its back.
The point is here that we are not fixed things. We are relationship. And things can’t be in relationship Relationship is the One that is Two. Relationship is both giving and receiving at the same time (as Tolle says), but our empirical minds that only see things can’t see ourselves as a verb. We can feel it when we are in sync, like Fred and Ginger dancing, but we always look like one thing dancing with another thing. But when relationship is in full swing, two are One, yet still two. Surrendering to life is surrendering to relationship the world. So when J. Krishnamurti says “you are the world and the world is you,” he is describing relationship, the ONE that is Two. You are that One.
You see why our logic cannot go here. The Jesus says I and the Father (the world) are ONE, he is describing relationship. If you say that, the logical reaction would be: “Who do you think you are, Jesus Christ?”
Christ is not a thing but a relationship, a the Way of Relationship, instead of the Way of Law (logic).
