There is no problem with duality. That’s how this whole thing plays out. Dark and light, calm and storm, rich and poor, sad and joy, pain and ease. And this season we experience the cold, we get less light, we get grumpy, we eat too much rich food, too much sugar, we get grumpier. Our pain bodies love this season of less light, inappropriate food, cold…and out they come to play. And we get the dark side of dual. Winter.
And this isn’t a problem. Tis the season. Tis the season to be low. High will come again, it always does. No problem. Unless of course your fairly invested in only one experience. Only bliss, only joy, only vast consciousness. Then you have a problem. When a contraction happens, when the dark side of the light arrises, you will have a problem. But reality has no problem, life has no problem. Just the little me…resisting, telling vast stories of problem.
My job is to point out to you, that duality is what goes on here. And your direct experience of duality may not be comfortable, may not be easy, but it is sane. Its the season of dark. You are part of that season, you are not separate. When I feel that ripple of darkness approaching I think of a saying from one of my pals,”baton down the hatches folks, a storm is coming”, and something in that saying, allows me to stay low and quiet and let the dark move. And its that acceptance, that welcoming, that we can ride the dark, even enjoy the dark.We can welcome the dark as we do the light.
And the light is on the way back…Duality is constant, and there is no dark without the light. Last night my friend came over, he lay on my couch and held me and I got to have a good old cry. Light and dark, love and pain. No problem in duality.
Happy Dark Nights, there is a candle in my window for you, there remains as always, light in your soul, no need to resist the season…
