Our minds understand the world in a series of diametrically opposing distinctions: where there is light, there is darkness; where there is pleasure there is pain; where there is knowledge there is ignorance;
where there is love, there is fear
The one cannot exist without the other — just like a coin cannot exist having only one side. Similarly, as impossible as it is to tame a ball on a slope, we restlessly seek pleasure to avoid pain, and love to conquer fear. Yet, in the dual world of opposites, to cultivate love, we must produce an equal amount of fear — it is an inescapable principle of duality. To addictively chase a high of love is to tempt the devilishness of fear, for in this model of reality, we perceive love and fear as things that we try to keep apart. But, actually, these beliefs do not exist outside the human mind. Here in the universe, free from interpretation, these notions of love and fear are not.
This is the sacred space of indifference where all opposites collapse. Without interpretation, things remain what they always have been — an illusion!
