Not two

When we want to understand something, we cannot just stand outside and observe it.  We have to enter deeply into it and be one with it.  If we want to understand a person, we have to feel his feelings, suffer his sufferings, and enjoy his joy.  In Buddhism, we call this kind of understanding "non-duality."  Not two.
