138 – Contradiction & Agreement in Nature …

Like everything in Nature, we are worlds of Contradictions and Agreements.

To be a relatively pre-programmed yet unique form of existence, we emerge anew from ancient sources and begin the creation of a Self by devouring nourishment. And although the Self is regulated by primal instincts, we can still guide it with a degree of freedom.

To create a Self we must conform to a common order.

To conform we must change.

To change we must endure.

To endure we must labor.

And on laboring, we age.

And in aging, we ultimately come to a transformative end – the discerning portal through which, as measured by the significance of our existence, we may be granted passage into a new beginning.

Destroying in order to create, conforming in order to be free, dying in order to begin, may seem contradictions.

They are not.

There is no creation without destruction, as there is no destruction without creation.

There is no instinct without choice, as there is no choice without instinct.

There is no conforming without change, as there is no change without conforming.

There is no labor without endurance, as there is no endurance without labor.

There is no beginning without end, as there is no end without beginning.

There are no contradictions without agreements in Nature; only man, unreasonable in his make-believe dogmatism, seems to find no agreement to his contradictions.
