It’s okay to honour someone’s differing opinions or experiences while still standing in your truth…
You can both be open to another’s view and know your own, all at the same time without any sense of compromise or confusion. It doesn’t have to feel like either/or, you can leave room for it all.
Life is quite adept at containing seeming contradictions and paradoxes within it. Where we make rules for how life ‘should’ be there will always be exceptions to this. My feeling is that this is absolutely no mistake… It keeps us open and nimble to all possibilities. It helps show us that there really isn’t anything you can hold onto on this relative plain of existence, just temporary appearances.
In this way life becomes a playground of experience; a banquet of taste and texture of phenomena. A full spectrum of colourful embodied experiencing, there for us to enjoy.
