Two. Three. None. You.
When we split the world into two, we split ourselves into three.
Good and bad.
Black and white.
Order and chaos.
Normal and strange.
We fragment ourselves, deny most parts of it, and so divided we are conquered.
Maybe it makes reality easier to digest with our little brain stomachs.
So we make the world smaller so it fits into our mouths, brains and minds.
Example: If all you look at is your screen, you will eventually be convinced that the world is made of pixels.
Thinking in twos is a very basic form of thinking. And it's easy to digest.
But once we do that to the world, we can't ignore for long that we are also in that world.
And eventually, after bastardizing reality into a grid, we have to choose a side or it will be chosen for us.
Naturally, we'd choose the good side, the up side, the normal side. Yet we know deep down that it can't be true.
On the surface we might think that it's because we must be on the bad side, yet the deep knowing is simpler. We are none of each, but both and more.
When we split the world into two, we split ourselves into three. Because the good and the bad we see are made of ourselves.
While we seek to be the good and avoid the bad as much as we can, the bad acts like a barrier to the good.
And the third element is born, your contracted self, torn between the two.
We can't experience life in its richness and ourselves in our fullness when we exclude almost half of it by labeling it negatively.
We can only do that when we learn to transcend not only labels but language itself.
When we stop seeking certainty to quieten our emotional agitations, we can begin to see with the purest clarity the vastness of our true nature,
If all that you label, think, see, feel, and hear is just a ripple, guess who the fountainhead is from which they arise?
