Life is quite paradoxical.. I’ve often heard this statement said by many. But, to me, it is not.
Paradox suggests something that can barely be understood; something that contradicts itself but yet possibly is true. This, of life, can be true at times, I’ll be the first to admit. But really, how paradoxical can life be unless you view it in such terms?
To view life, in this paradigm as we all have grown into it, is more of a wonder to me. It inspires me at every turn. It lures me, though at times it tries me.. as it does everyone, whether they choose to admit it or not. I cannot accept a paradoxical life; I find this to be too simplified. The life I know is full of beauty if you should choose to see it, or full of pain if you should choose to bear it, and often; full of elegant surprise. One turn leads to many subtle and unsuspecting other turns. Choice remains the underlying factor of the entire paradox. One choice leads to another, and another, and another. This is not paradoxical, this is methodical.
Those who engage life with vibrance of spirit, with selfless interest, with care for the soul of every being do not find a paradigm of paradox. Instead, they find what they wish to find. So do we all.
In the sphere, some prefer to keep trying to figure out the cogs and wheels that make everything tick and tock. But.. what if there aren’t any? What is a search going to turn up if this is the case?
Answer: The sphere is unique to the individual. Choose to find paradox, and you will. Choose to see truth and beauty, and you will. Choose to love and you will. Choose to hate, and you will. See what you will, but.. Reap what you sow. This is not paradox.. this is life.
The present moment is the only place you’ve ever been, ever evolving, ever moving. Embrace it… and the fog will thin.
