Duality 102

Jesus said to them: When you make the two as one and when you make the inner as the outer and the outer as the inner and the above as the below and when you make the male and the female as a single one, so that the male is not male and the female not female, when you make eyes in place of an eye and a hand in place of a hand and a foot in place of a foot, an image in place of an image, then you will enter the kingdom.

Gospel of Thomas, Log. 22

 

 

***

The indwelling splendor embraces all the worlds, all creatures, good and evil. And it is the true Oneness. How, then, can it tolerate within itself the opposites of good and evil? In reality there is no contradiction, for evil is the very throne of goodness.

Baal Shem Tov

***

 

Out beyond ideas

Of wrongdoing

And right-doing

There is a field.

I’ll meet you there.

Rumi
