I don't agree it can be spoken about, it can't be shared like a piece of music at all. Tacit knowing simply cannot be shared with another.
Music can be shared because we're all hearing the same tune..but nondual understanding cannot be heard externally, it's a silent inside hearing.
Maybe it can be described using the only tool available,(words) but it can never be given to you from an external agent. So it cannot be taught in the way a teacher would have you believe. You do not have to learn to be Enlightened. Reality is already Enlightened, that's the whole realisation in the first place, that there is no person who becomes Enlightened, there is only here Enlightenment. There is no such thing as a fallen man or woman, who has to crawl around on it's belly until it reunites with the GodHead. That is just a story written by the holy men who would have you believe otherwise, but the whole story that you are detached from God is nothing more than a depraved Bu$ine$$ Scam.
This is ALL GOD right here and now, the good the bad and the ugly, the sleepers and the awakened ones is ALL GOD ....no person can tell another they haven't found God YET. You don't need external things to prove who you are.True Nondual understanding is maintaining our identity not from what others say but by being ourselves rather than trying to be like others or pretending to be what we are not.So, those who know do not need to speak to show that they know. That's all I'm saying.
Those who know cannot show other what they know, they have to SHUT UP to the idea they have got some knowledge to give to you, because they assume you don't have it yet. That mentality is absurd. It's better to say, I cannot give you anything that you don't already have yourself, or can give yourself.Those who know the Tao do not brag.

Nondual understanding is completely silent within the sense of being. Thinking one can share that understanding which is beyond language would be like tring to share with your partner what it feels like to be in love. That partner could not possibly know what it feels like from the perspective of the other one what the feeling of being in love feels like..and this is how I see nondual understanding works too. You cannot share with another what it feels like to be in love and expect that other to know what feeling in love is like, it just doesn't work like that as we see many times when couples think they are in love with each other, they think they know what love is ..then two months or so down the line they can't stand the sight of each other...the point is the dynamic of LOVE is much more complex than just saying those 3 little words I LOVE YOU. The point is, no one can love you, and you cannot love another...that's separation. Nondual understanding is the same principle. No one can teach you to be what you already are.
When teachers tell their followers that they are not Enlightened yet, or that they cannot possibly see God until they do such and such, like getting to know a nondual teacher, or having to meditate for hours on end, or attending spiritual retreats listening to endless satangs, or doing this practice or that practice like shoving psychedelic drug or any other psychedelic drug up their arse.
I just think it is a depraved mentality telling other people they are not Enlightened YET just because they haven't followed a particular practice whatever that maybe according to the teacher. Not all teachers are like that, but some are.
Don't brag about this to others telling them they will not see GOD until they do drugs. While drugs may or may not take you to other mansions, you haven't actually gone anywhere, you've had a pleasurable trip without actually going anywhere...it's all still the same here now nowhere the same as it ever was. God is God, there is only God doing what God does, there is no other God, it's all God...it's even God pulling the bu$ine$$ scam with itself. Yes, God can appear to be in Drag, pulling off the charm of being multiple characters, good or bad.Those who know the Tao do not brag.
Those who brag do not know the Tao.
Telling others I have seen God because I have shoved psychedelic drugs up my arse, and until you shove these drugs up your arse you will not see God is crazy talk. This is just more selfish self-serving addiction, it's not a teaching, it's being addicted to pleasure and then addicted to the pleasure of telling others the WAY to God is through my way or the highway..and then of course there's the pleasure of money made in the process of selling water by the river, of off the backs of lowly innocent pious gullible disciples.
Also making a living by trying to teach someone else what is beyond any hope of being applied in all practical purposes to another person thinking they too will know what they know is the work of a con artist. When often the other person is totally oblivious to the teaching in the sense it has not been their own direct experience, nor will it ever be put there by another...So this is not a job or a way of making a living in my opinion...unlike most other jobs that can be shown to be done and applied accordingly as taught....So it is a dishonest way to make a living. Write about the profound experiences of nondual understanding yes, distribute the knowledge all over the internet for free, or even sit on a park bench and talk about it all day long to all who pass by .. that's ok I suppose, but don't try and make a living out of something that cannot be shown or applied.
To tell another person that they know but you don't so I'm going to tell you what I know so that you too know .. is just plain absurd...truth is, no one knows what another person knows and is why some teachers are just simply ignorant, arrogant and condecending idiots.
Take children for example, a typical case of what Enlightenment really stands for is seen in a child at play...that until their society deforms and poisons them beyond all hope and recognition. ..so to be like that of a child again is to enter the kingdom of heaven which is always right here now where it's always present.
