Living the Paradox

All things are true. This is not to say what is right or fair or just.
Only an open heart can start to make sense of how.
When we keep choosing between right and wrong, we spend life sorting it rather than living it.

We are all asked to ask for what we need only to practice accepting what we are given. This is a paradox.

The reward for asking for what we need, is to become intimate with our own nature, to become intimate with everything we are.

The reward for practicing accepting what we’re given is to become intimate with everything we are not; to become intimate with the nature of life.

The rhythm between our own nature and the nature of life is what allows us to find the thread that we are in the unseeable connection that holds everything together.
