If I were to focus on just one element of the nondual teachings, it would be this fundamental issue: wherever division exists, conflict will be a product. Conversely, wherever you can identify a conflict, divisiveness will be involved.
This applies not only to what we can witness externally in the world, it applies equally in regard to our inner turmoil and confusion, even to the choices we ponder.
The nondual teachings instruct us that if conflict is to end--inner or outer--divisiveness must come to an end. Put another way, as long as we remain in (separative) confusion, everything which we attempt to do will be a product of that confusion. But once (awakened) clarity is present, all that we do will be a product of that clarity. So it is important, in the balance of our life, for Self-realization to be at the top of the agenda.
A second fundamental element, of the teachings, is this: the Truth that you'll discover is the same Truth that is present this very moment. There is not anything in the future that will bring you closer to the prospect of this Truth than you are right now. You need not transit in time, in order to end the dualistic confusion.
