Without Extremes…

Without extremes

without extremes, no exchange.
without exchange, no motion.
without motion, no life.

without light, what would be dark?
without sorrow, what would be joy?
without fear, what would be safe?

without spirit, what would be matter?
without matter, what would exist?

without chaos, what would be structure?
without destroying, what could we create?

without need, what would we dream of?
without dreams, what would we do?
without action, what would change?
without change, what would have meaning?

without extremes, where would be balance?
without extremes, where would be choice?
without extremes, how could we grow?

Challenge yourself 

Write down pairs of extremes which rule your life. 

How do they help you in making decisions?

Where are your points of balance?

Focus on one pair of extremes at a time: What can you do right now to move closer to balance?

Enjoy the ride 🙂
