Nondual perception is this perception. There is no other perception. You are already there, you are already that, this is it, etc. etc. Maybe the thoughts coming up and what they are saying about This is what you are mistaking for This, although those thoughts are also seamlessly This. There will be many people who write about this stuff - me included, occasionally - who recommend methods for clearing the thoughts up, or for not believing the thoughts. The thoughts come. Just try to stop them. But just as the images of the film happen on the still screen, the still screen is there no matter what nonsensical plot twists and turns unfold on it. You don't even particularly have to tune out the movie and sense only the screen. It's there. No matter what. You can believe it, or not. It's there.
Nobody believes that this ordinary, everyday perception is what Enlightened Life is. It must be more special, more perfect, more blissful, more loving, certainly with fewer thoughts and even less judgement. Whatever reality seems to be, and whatever thought judges and interprets it as, is yet another face of love, or of God, or of the Absolute. It just is. It's doesn't get any better or worse than what it is. What it is, is miraculous, by virtue of its mere existence. Sometimes this seems more obvious than at other times. All times are one. All states and interpretations are equal. All acts, happenings, feelings, sensations and thoughts are love, playing the duality game so that they may be manifest; so that they may be something, rather than nothing. Perhaps it is problematic to have certain expectations, and narrow definitions of what life must be like. On the other hand, perhaps suffering due to these expectations and definitions are exactly what must be. If it is, it must be. Often, those who have the memory of suffering would not trade it for anything. It seems precious, and is often seen as the story of a springboard. Suffering, then redemption. Hard work, then rest. However, it doesn't matter what the story seems to be or how it is retold with hindsight. All stories are told now.
While waiting for enlightenment, if you don't believe enlightenment is already the case, perhaps it's a good idea to do the best possible job you can do, however that is defined at the time, with the task in hand - whatever it seems to be. If it seems to be bridging the gap between "me over here" and "you over there," don't be afraid to judge that noble.
Ah, the task in hand. Phil Connors gets ample time to explore several tasks as he relives the same day over and over in the classic film Groundhog Day. There are many estimates as to how long Phil relived February 2nd: anything from 8 to 50 years, with 10,000 years mentioned on one site! A representative estimate is here. I always thought it was interesting that Phil managed to achieve intimacy in his relationships without the usual facility of memory and continuity (on everybody else's part anyway). Maybe it takes time to learn to play the piano, but perhaps bridging that imagined gap between people is always already done. Working on a relationship in time is also worthy. Both are possible.
