Our world today is at constant odds with itself, existing in duality. We observe our lives as swinging between right or wrong, pain or joy, up or down. This keeps us moving and scurrying like drones, chasing not only success, but the next success.
To feel satisfaction is to be present and value our choices. After breath, the most precious gift to humans is choice. Our freewill gives us the control to stop our minds from swinging between black and white.
The reason it is so simple to see the world as black and white is because we are terrified to make the wrong choice. We are convinced we will say yes when we mean no, go right instead of left, choose black when we want white. But, at least for me, it has required a series of both right and wrong to get me where I am today. So maybe choices are neither good nor bad, but somewhere between.
We can choose to find peace in balance. I can discover satisfaction by being still, accepting the grey that lies between black and white.
