It is what it is
I thought I would share some words. In context of the (in my
personal opinion) delusional and seemingly condesending, arrogent
remarks of some non-dualists. Dropping all concepts is a concept in
and of itself.

"The Master used to say: 'One who is a true nondualist becomes
silent. Nonduality is not a subject for discussion. As soon as a
person tries to talk about it or explain it, the knowledge of duality
creeps in. When there is thought or imagination, there is duality
within the mind, and one has not yet attained nondual knowledge. In
this world only Brahman, or the Nirguna aspect of the Divine Mother,
has not been defiled [like food that has been touched be the
toungue].' In other words, no one has ever been able to say what
Brahman is. Human language is inadequate for expressing it: Nirguna
Brahman is beyond the mind and the intellect. How can It be spoken
of or explained in words? When he referred to the nondual Truth, the
Master said repeatedly, 'Look, that is the last word in spiritual
attainment.' It is clear that, as the Master said: 'As long as there
are ideas of 'I and you,' 'speaking and listening,' and other
activities, one must accept in practice both aspects of Brahman -
Nirguna and Saguna, nitya [the Absolute] and lila [the Relative].
You are thus for all practical purposes a qualified nondualist,
although you may talk about nondualism.' ..."

"Know that nonduality is the last word in realization. It is
beyond the mind and speech, and a matter of experience."
"Only the states up to qualified nondualism can be understood
through the mind and intellect and expressed in words. There the
Absolute and Relative both are equally real. The Lord Himself, His
name, and His abode - all are pure consciousness."
"Duality is meant for ordinary human beings who are attached
to sense objects. An excellent practice for them is to chant the
Lord's name loudly according to the Narada Pancharatra."
