Quote of the Day: Shih-T’ou

On the trail to Shaman's Cave... the rocks in the distance contain ancient Native tribe communities built right into the rock!

“Within light there is darkness.
Within darkness there is light.
But do not look for that light –
Light and darkness are entwined.
Like the foot in front and the food behind in walking,
each has its own value, each related to the other.”
~ Shih-T’ou


Good and bad are two sides of the same coin.

One cannot exist in the absence of it’sΒ opposite spectrum; without the existence of heat, cold would have no value, no meaning. Without the manifestation of contraction, expansion would not manifest, either.

Life is a balance of opposites, intimately related and literally interdependent on one another.

Let us appreciate life as a whole, in all its varied manifestations across a vast spectrum of opposites.

Have a lovely Friday and a very wonderful weekend! xo
