Lately, I am reading and thinking a lot about duality and have settled with the notion that everything is in the form of duality. And how acceptance of duality can bring peace.
If I love to sleep on the weekend and you love to go outdoors, both are fine. Neither could be termed as right or wrong.
Likewise, if I prefer to be up at 4:30 am and sleep by 10:00 pm, and you prefer to be up at 9:00 am and sleep at 2:00 am, both are fine.
I can be materialistic and you can be non-materialistic.
I prefer to withdraw to myself and prefer self-time, and you can be an outgoing person who loves to hang out with friends and family.
I could be aesthetic and you could be unaesthetic. And we can live together peacefully with our own notion.
Even nature has duality, we have day and night, sun and moon, winter and summer, spring and autumn, breathe in and breathe out.
This is the duality for me. When we focus on what we believe in and stop converting others to accept our idea. When we accept that two types of people, two different ideas, two believes can co-exist, that the duality is real, we will be at ease with everyone and everything.
