Life is a series of dichotomies—highs and lows, abundance and scarcity, connection and division. When I embrace the duality of each moment, I am able to observe, rather than hold on to one or the other.
For example, last week I was in Redondo Beach, California. The skies were blue, the sun was shining and I could go for a walk outside with a light sweater.
Now, I’m in Seattle, Washington where the forecast for the next 2 weeks is rain, rain, and more rain.
Truth be told, I am a pluviophile and love a good rain shower, but two weeks non-stop is a little much for even me.
The contrast is significant. As is the contrast in so many other areas of life. Highs and lows come and go. What I am learning (sometimes the hard way) is that there is freedom and power in holding the opposites lightly and not being attached to what shows up.
What are the dualities showing up right now for you? How do you practice non-attachment? I’d love to hear!
