Moving Towards And

Please acknowledge both the Light and the dark

within and around you

so that you may embody humility, compassion, and wisdom.

Please acknowledge both the scientific and the romantic

within and around you

so that you may appreciate a variety of perspectives.

Please acknowledge both the mythological and the literal

within and around you

so that you may embrace multiple ways of knowing.

Please acknowledge both the known and the unknown

within and around you

so that you may recognize the fractal nature of reality.

Either/or reconcile in and in the cosmic dance of transformation.

What dualisms do you espouse

that leave you feeling

self-righteous,

isolated, and

paralyzed?

Allow the and to happen

and you will feel the empowerment of resurrection.

For resurrection includes the either and the or

in a new configuration that receives, and then offers, healing.
