ETHICS AND DUALISM

The American Institute of Ethics believes that dualism and dualistic thinking and behavior are what have our society log-jammed in futility. We cannot seem to make things better, we only seem to be able to argue and insult and put someone who does not agree with us down or destroyed.

It is most evident in our political discourse, but it has pervaded all of the institutions that we hold so dear and have worked so well for us over the decades. This is an “ism” that is right up there with individualism, materialism and secularism in eating at the roots, the foundations, the very essence of our wonderful structure.

We have lost the ability to disagree and to disagree in a friendly manner. It is “all or nothing” and this is a pathway to real disaster. Our Country is at a very critical moment in our history, it is going to take all of us pulling together, whether we agree completely or not, to solve this serious dilemma.

Contemplation and Meditation are one of the keys to overcoming dualism. We have to find and be our true self, we must be the person that we are and be proud of it and live that way. We can no longer afford to try to be who we think others want us to be.

Above all else, we must get along. We do not have to agree, but we can peacefully and sometimes pleasantly disagree, but find the places where we agree and work towards solution. The day of “just say NO is over.
