Mystic River Dual Audio Eng 155
In spirituality, nondualism, also called nonduality  and nondual awareness, is a fuzzy concept originating in Indian philosophy and religion for which many definitions can be found,[note 1] including: advaita, nondual awareness, the nonduality of seer and seen or nondifference of subject and object; advaya, the identity of conventional phenomena and ultimate reality, or the "nonduality of duality and nonduality"; and monism, the nonplurality of the world and "the interconnection of all things." It may also refer to a negation of dualistic thinking; and to the mystical unity of God and man.

Nondual awareness can also be found in western traditions, such as Sufism (Wahdat al Wujud, Fanaa, and Haqiqah), as well as in Christian mysticism and Neoplatonism (henosis, mystical union). Western Neoplatonism is an essential element of both Christian contemplation, Islamic Dhikr, mysticism, Western esotericism and modern spirituality, especially Unitarianism, Transcendentalism, Universalism and Perennialism.
Judaism has within it a strong and very ancient mystical tradition that is deeply nondualistic. "Ein Sof" or infinite nothingness is considered the ground face of all that is. God is considered beyond all proposition or preconception. The physical world is seen as emanating from the nothingness as the many faces "partsufim" of god that are all a part of the sacred nothingness.
Insight (prajna, kensho, satori, gnosis, theoria, illumination), especially enlightenment or the realization of the illusory nature of the autonomous "I" or self, is a key element in modern western nondual thought. It is the personal realization that ultimate reality is nondual, and is thought to be a validating means of knowledge of this nondual reality. This insight is interpreted as a psychological state, and labeled as religious or mystical experience. 350c69d7ab
