Light and its shadows are all that exist.”
This unattributed quote was shared with me today.
At first, I thought it a lovely, and possible but not probable, thought.
And then it slowly crept in that perhaps it is deeply accurate.
There is no duality. Light and its shadows are all that exist.
Duality equates to opposites. Light and shadow are plays of contrast, and that strikes me as belonging to the organic.
If that is so, then might it be the synthetic — the false light and false dark — that, in their extremes, compose duality?
Imagine that for a moment.
What that might mean.
How it might change how we view ourselves and our experience. The sense of unity within shades of contrast compared to the sense of separation within paired stark opposites.
Can you feel it, feel the difference?
Tell me. What do you sense?
