In my experience duality did and does still serve it's purpose to broaden my perspective of the inner workings of our present realm, to enhance understanding that leads to balance. The chaos contained in the world that leads one to doubt the one we once knew. The kind of sadness found that forces the ~I am~ to dive into the one, the heart, to see the source of the pain. The pain that leads us to find the stillness that is within for wisdom. To let go of beliefs with all the minds restraints unbridled to ponder what is from scratch.
From that clear vantage point mind, heart and soul balance out to become part of something very profound. (just a glimpse) Seems that what is profound can not reside while ego is present.
Meditation and ones journey is relative to the individual needs I suspect. I do not like to speak much about the above, as I would not want to derail others. But feel that is not a worry in this thread.
Seems a lot of pain in many cases is inflicted upon ourselves to awaken. Just can not help but feel we are here to manifest a gentler path, but I do not have a clue there. Seems we much teach ourselves to learn. Begs me to ask the question again, can something so profound be taught, If so I see a few good professors here.
I thank those that help ease the sea saw ride that is
