For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

Embracing the poles or the middle way...

... not that we should choose as choosing would be a very polar way to conclude a question of balance ;-)

It is often said in Buddhism and Taoism that we should go for the middle way, the balance point.

It is also often said that the intention of this is to recognize what it is that leads to polar positions. To be 'anti this' is to be 'pro that' and both uphold one another. In a post due later in the year on Daily Cup of Tao I say this of war...

"Embrace war and evil.

Sounds odd, yet to embrace them will aid in their removal. If you oppose them, you enforce them. Take them on board, consider them. It was someone who was against something who brought about war. So only those who embrace all can put an end to it."

I have been pondering with this issue for a while now, and I have come to a conclusion that the only way to end evil, is to end good as well.

I have written the post about it but will be posted weeks ahead.

Nice to read yours :)
