Duality is Sneaky
Within any given moment, an opportunity to experience joy or pain is right there amid life. Depending upon your prejudice, history, focus, or tendencies, you will seek out and experience joy, or you will notice the pain and limitation of life. All of this happens in the flash of a thought, a nanosecond in time. This all happens so quickly and often appears to be so logical that we simply do not question it, because it seems real according to our human ways of measuring life.
