I notice you often refer to the Beloved as nearly an equivalent to Self.
Yes, as two sides of one coin.
But doesn't that promote a duality point of view, me and the Beloved?
Well, what about me and Self? If the Beloved is seen as a mirror, yes, there's a duality, but a useful or helpful one.
If the consciousness state of the Beloved is rooted in non-duality, that can't help but leak through to the observing limited me. Eventually, hopefully, the mirror becomes a window, as self gravitates to the understanding and eventually to the full actualization that only Self is and that the selves are drops in one ocean.
