Understanding the Opposites

The ying and yang reveal the two opposites.

It is only by living at both ends of the spectrum,

that your true self is free.

It´s not enought to understand the hot and the cold,

hard and soft sides of life.

You must embrace both sides of all feelings.

Without sorrow you cannot understand relief.

You cannot understand hapiness until you understand misery.

Work both ends of the spectrum.

(Joseph Kelljchian)
