TABOR: The Apprentice’s Book of Reflections by D.B. GaNung
Excerpt from “Opposites, differentiating experience”
To ignore opposites when they reveal pertinent polarities is as wrong as applying this
principle to everything. Living a more balanced life without undue emphasis or
premature integration allows the moment to develop its full value in retrospect.
Attempting to resolve things while they are still developing is almost sure to limit
the potential for growth. Allowing an experience to be more or less absorbed forms
a sense of containment that can assist later upon contemplation. One can sift and
sort things by discovering the binding and often contradictory truths that wind
through it all—a pair of opposites in tandem.
