Spider web with dew drops
Everything is connected, it's all part of the same web.

Yes, at times your life sucks, and so does mine!  Welcome to planet Earth.  But you know what?!  Whether your life is sucking or your life is being beautiful, it's the same life either way.

As human beings, we live in a world of relativity, and as such everything has it's opposite.  The problem is that materialism--which seems to be the dominant system of thought in our culture--teaches us, or at least implies that opposites are completely different things.  Opposites are not separate, different things, but rather are variations or differing characteristics of the same thing, object, or subject.  Hot and cold are both measurements of temperature.  In and out are both locations in space.  Alive and dead are both states of physical activity.  Materialism teaches us that things are separate and independent, but the truth is that everything is connected!

Everything is Dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites; like and unlike are the same; opposites are identical in nature, but different in degree; extremes meet; all truths are but half-truths; all paradoxes may be reconciled.
