At this current time in our culture, there’s such divisiveness, such argument over right and wrong, good and harmful. Can we as Buddhists find the middle way through this – the middle way of non-duality, the place that allows the co-existence of all possibilities – unity beyond diversity? This wouldn’t mean that we take half of this and half of that and end up in a homogenized compromise. It means we hold the totality of both at the same time. (Bruce Tift, Deepak Chopra).
Let us turn to and fill ourselves with the wisdom of those who have found a medium that expresses this place –i.e., poetry, prose, pictures, music, life examples. Let us share these with one another as a way of guiding ourselves to this place of oneness.
Sujata now begins each teaching session with time for people to share an example of holding contradictory energies simultaneously. We compile the results below.
