The Dance of Contrast

I have learned silence from the talkative, toleration from the intolerant, and kindness from the unkind; yet, strange, I am ungrateful to those teachers.
~Khalil Gibran~

We live in an infinite universe. There are levels and lifetimes ahead in which we will continue our journey of discovery. The villains you encounter in this life may have chosen to play a role that sparks growth. Keep it simple – tend to your own state of consciousness and seek only to uplift the world around you.
Judgment typically occurs when we have yet to experience both aspects of a situation or when the ego attaches to one as “good” and the other as “bad.” Neutrality ensues when we have cultivated empathy and compassion through personal experience. Some circumstances take lifetimes to explore, while others may present themselves more quickly.
The whole point of coming to the physical plane is to learn. Intense experiences teach us in dramatic ways. Consciousness allows us to discover nuances that are often missed when trapped in the grip of ego. Life is a tapestry of dark and light, made even more beautiful by contrast and the creative way it unfolds. To dance in the light of love is to honor whatever arises in the present moment and greet it with open arms.
We have a unique opportunity to discover the dreams and attributes we have in common and weave them into an exquisite work of art. Observe the flow of life, your response to it and how you process this information. As you evolve, you’ll bring a sense of awareness and balance into each and every moment.
