The universe within

The spiritual path is littered with countless paradoxes and contradictions. To advance along the path, one must move swiftly and remain still, take risks and exercise caution, advance and retreat, learn and unlearn, grasp and let go. To see unity in endless diversity, to make sense out of seeming chaos, to see clearly in utter darkness, and to apprehend the entire universe in a drop of water– these are the rewards of the journey.
