A Stage Along The Way

What is non-duality, ultimately?I see so much teaching that rejects ego,mind,etc.and seems to try to eliminate them in favor of an infinite,eternal,unmoving,dispassionate Self that sees them as "not real."They are real and not real at the same time.This is the importance of the teaching about Maya ("that which is not," Maya is simultaneously real and unreal).The Self/non-Self condition that sees Self as real and the world as unreal is a stage along the way towards the Vedanta reality, but it is not the full enlightenment.This is still duality.
