It's Not Either/Or.


Polarity, or action and reaction, we meet in every part of nature; in darkness and light; in heat and cold; in the ebb and flow of water; in male and female…”- Ralph Waldo Emerson

Life is filled with polarities. This wouldn’t be a problem, except we think that when one thing shows up in our life, we’d be happier with the opposite. We get frustrated, but we think we should be patient. We get angry, but think we should be peaceful. We get passed over for the promotion and think we’re a loser. Instead of accepting what is, we suffer. The truth is it’s not either/or, it’s both/and.
