Opposing

One can’t survive in this world without the other

“Yin and yang, male and female, strong and weak, rigid and tender, heaven and earth, light and darkness, thunder and lightning, cold and warmth, good and evil…the interplay of opposite principles constitute the universe.” Confucius

Who is the authority that decides which is good or bad?

My dear friend, don’t stick to your point of view all the time and my suggestion is to try to be flexible.

Nothing is under your control.

Be realistic!

“Your happiness depends on your ability to balance the opposites rather than sticking to only one of the truths while ignoring all others. When you avoid something for long, over a period of time, it creates a craving in you that can disturb the peace of your mind and make you suffer immensely.” Awdhesh Singh

Irony of life

“Accept that there are things in this world we can never explain and life will be understandable. That is the irony of life. It is also the beauty of it” Tan Twan Eng

For the world to survive, one should accept both positive and negative energies

“Everything is balanced. Everything physical (matter/energy) goes back and forth in balanced circles, cycles, or the equivalent. Birth-death, old-young, big-small, strong-weak, start-stop, up-down, rich-poor, beginning-end, fast-slow, hot-cold, pain-pleasure, win-lose, day-night, full-empty, high-low, in-out, success-failure, united-divided, give-receive, creation-destruction, on-off, positive-negative, etc.
Positive and negative forces moving in balance are the physical universe.” Michael Smith

Message

“Embrace contradictions
for they make up
all of life:
You will eternally be
looking for yourself and
seeking ways to lose yourself.” Kamand Kojouri

Thank you.

Namaste 🙏🙏🙏

    And be willing to get along with those with opposing views in a civil way! Of course that only works well if both sides are willing to do so.
