Poetic Pause: “Perfection”
Listen to the silence behind the sound.
Life is not about being comfortable,
Comfort does not challenge us to learn and grow.
Life is about experiencing:
+ Hot and cold
+ Good and bad
+ Having and longing
+ Passion and indifference
+ Happiness and suffering
+ Beauty and unpleasantness
+ Hopefulness and hopelessness
Until we realize the perfection of each,
That without the other, the one could not exist.
Until we realize that life simply is,
And we become one with it.
Listen to the eternal silence.
