**QUOTE 14: EMBRACING BOTH SIDES**

*There is good and there is bad, there is happiness and there is sadness, there is love and there is hate, there is male and there is female and so on and on. We find ourselves in one side or the other. But to be 'whole', both sides need to 'embraced' and 'integrated'. Then you find center, the middle path, after which you are neither 'here nor there'. You are 'WHOLE' and 'COMPLETE', a new way of 'BEING'."*_EXPLANATION:

**Carrying on from the previous quote, this quote goes further and explains how one becomes 'WHOLE'. Since there is duality in this Universe which means there are 2 sides to everything, it results in a 'paradox'. You see, in a paradox, there are 2 sides and both sides seem apparently 'true'. However, paradoxes are the most beautiful thing. They provide a wonderful opportunity but at the same time presents a difficulty. Now, you have a 'choice' of either choosing to stay in this 'one' side or the 'other' side. But you see, you are just choosing one side i.e. one half of a 'whole' and that represents 'judgement'. E.g this side is the right side, that side is wrong, this side is better, that is not etc etc. But to get the knowledge of both the sides, the paradox has to be integrated which can only be done by 'embracing' them. So you embrace both sides , you are suddenly 'whole', you understand 'both sides' and you have the 'knowledge' of both sides. By doing that, you find the 'middle path' which means you are neither 'here' nor 'there', you are in a state of 'balance' and that itself results in a new way of 'BEING'. It is a way to 'transcend' duality.**HTML Comment Box is loading comments...
