Book review - Non-dualism in Eckhart, Julian of Norwich and Traherne
All the media was saying that Hanoi was under a metre of water, but I found it pe Born in I spent my childhoo I suppose I should start with my usual caveat: This is not a list of books that came out in though some of them did. It is my usual l He describes how the ascetic practise of non-dualism involves the recognition that unveils the world in its true, divine light, incarnated in creation itself, Christocentrically.
Of interest for a philosophical distinction is how, under this definition, non-dualism is only secondarily concerned with conceptual geographies. It also explains how it is possible that the creative act critiques and generates conceptual structures in relation to established religious meanings.

As such, what the poet Charlton does and where he does it, shares tendencies with the contemplative non-dualist Traherne. If this type of work expresses good theology then it poses a conceptual and methodological challenge to mainstream theologies which emphasise both a methodological dualism and theologies which can maintain dualistic tendencies.
This, to my mind, is the most potent and challenging chapter of the work. The work progresses into a discussion of Mother Julian of Norwich who experiences God through the struggle to trust in naked intimacy.

The divine generates and nourishes us even at a distance, but in the incarnation, the divine feeds us intimately and frequents every moment of life. Intimacy is thus literal. His more original engagement with the connection of divinity and creation comes through his use of Eastern Ramana terminology of self-hood, in which the divine spark of self-hood, though not acquired in any way, is found by the subject. Hence, to our soul, being embodied makes it open to all, neither too dense nor ethereal.

Divinity, then, in the phase of the non-dual, is revealed not as the dominant agent or concept, but one who has always been and, in the ordinariness of life has a loving friendship with subjectivity and the cosmos. Charlton notes resonances between silence as ground Being and speech as creation a being , in which, beyond the dualistic terms, become aspects of each other.
Charlton opens the conversation to include thinkers such as Sankara, Charles Taylor and Simone Weil, highlighting their effect on the contexts in which they lived and wrote.
