I embrace and accept the light-ness and the dark-ness as essential forces comprising the whole of physical existence.
I live in a harmonious acceptance of duality, learning from it, and growing into unity, through it.
Physical life is a never-ending interplay of the forces of duality, of light and dark. How beautiful it would be to dance only in the light, the joy, the goodness and the glory, but in our world of two-ness and opposites, we can not, nor should we, avoid dancing in the dark. By resisting or denying the experience of pain, suffering, and heartache in the world, we only deepen its hold on us. We can only truly be free of darkness when we embrace it, when we accept its presence, when from it we achieve the greatness of compassion, charity, and forgiveness. Accepting the dance of duality opens a space in the heart for unity. Harmony is not found in only having, only loving, only knowing joy, it is found in appreciating the full spectrum of life, from love to hate, from joy to sorrow, from self-pity to gratitude. Balance is not found in denial but in acceptance. See life as this dance, a constant and necessary interplay of polarity and opposing forces, creating and destroying, coming together and tearing apart. Embrace the whole of experience, the shadows and the source, and you will begin to possess an equanimity that allows you to dance with the entirety.
