✨“If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summer’s day. Nothing stimulates our appetite for the simple joys of life more than the starvation caused by sadness or desperation. In order to complete our amazing life journey successfully, it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse.” ✨

I often hear beautiful people speak of salvation through the demolition of duality. I persuade that without duality we cannot experience love liberation or Oneness. It is in the essence of polarity that we can find the middle, that we can feel euphoria, by contrast of depression. It is when we think the other doesn't exist or when we want to erase the dark, when it's always an us versus them, that is when stagnation and hate occurs. As I grow and learn, I'm understanding that beauty resides in the acceptance of duality. It rests in the experience of darkness and the emergence back into the light. The pendulum of this duality is what makes us Spiritual beings. Our liberation is not from exclusion of those experiences or in an attempt to end them but in the surrender within the consistently fluid movement. Life ebbs and flows through our darkest nights of our soul into the brightest essence of love. Oneness is only such by way of division. Division exists because we are One.
Just my own reflections. 😍
