The narrative is a narrow constriction of attention onto "me and my story." Thanks for this post Tom.
The words 'narrative' and 'narrow' look like they're related.Of course, a story (to be any good) HAS to be very selective in what it includes and how it links these "things" into a sequence.On the other hand, 'Non-duality' points to "Infinite Intemporality" which "transcends and includes" all apparent events.
I like the contrast between "no thing" and "story." Although there is no opposite of non-duality, narrative/story seems to be an essential element of what creates the "illusion of duality"
