“Out beyond ideas of wrong-doing and right-doing there is a field.
I’ll meet you there.”  – Rumi

Being human is complex.  Within each one of us there is a whole world of rights, wrongs, beautiful, ugly, attractive, sad and happy.  We form ideas; “this is the way being right is”, “this is the way being wrong is” and we become rigid in the word we create.

I know we feel the compulsion to qualify and quantify everything because it gives us a false sense of security.  But the truth I, on a daily basis our ideas are challenged by life.  What we think is absolutely not acceptable perhaps looked at in a different light is not so wrong.  And we become aware that love, hate, acceptance, jealously, sadness and contentment all live together in our hearts.

Recognizing the rigid rules we live by are self-created, embracing the dichotomy of our feelings and living peacefully within the contradiction is the great juggling act of life.
