Balancing Act

When we see only our separateness, we sink into fear and self-preservation. We come to believe we must protect ourselves, so we build walls and fences and weapons. We fight. We go to war.

When we see only our oneness, we surrender the unique experiences of our separateness. We dissolve into the lives of others. We fail to explore ourselves, and in the process we never discover who we are.

When we seek a balance between our separateness and our oneness, we are respecting the gift of unique perspective we came into the world with. We also are respecting that which we arise from and to which we will return.
