sublime


ran into a text this morning, relates to my recent thoughts :

“Looking at life from both sides means we stand back and observe the observable, hopefully in a nonjudgmental fashion. We see the light, we acknowledge the shadows. It is from both sides that we gain perspective, balance and most importantly integration. Life is not black and white, nor are clouds, nor is love. Nothing in our world is that static. We live life on the fulcrum, constantly balancing give and take, win and lose, up and down, joy and pain. If we plunge to any extreme with the hope of remaining there, we are bound to be disappointed. Life itself does not have the power to disappoint us however, only our illusions about life can do this. We can choose to recall certain poignant moments, but they may prove to be illusory when we examine them more carefully. Two people involved in a swept-away romance are both going to experience rapture perhaps, but would describe that experience quite differently.”

  2. Thanks so much for this brilliant blog;this is the kind of thing that keeps me awake through the day. I’ve been looking around for this site after I heard about them from a buddy and was thrilled when I found it after searching for awhile. Being a avid blogger, I’m dazzled to see others taking initivative and contributing to the community. Just wanted to comment to show my appreciation for your website as it is very interesting, and many bloggers do not get credit they deserve. I am sure I’ll drop by again and will send some of my friends.
