“If we never experience the chill of a dark winter, it is very unlikely that we will ever cherish the warmth of a bright summer’s day. Nothing stimulates our appetite for the simple joys of life more than the starvation caused by sadness or desperation. In order to complete our amazing life journey successfully, it is vital that we turn each and every dark tear into a pearl of wisdom, and find the blessing in every curse.” ― Anthon St. Maarten, Divine Living: The Essential Guide To Your True Destiny

“In order to eat, you have to be hungry. In order to learn, you have to be ignorant. Ignorance is a condition of learning. Pain is a condition of health. Passion is a condition of thought. Death is a condition of life.”
Robert Anton Wilson, Leviathan

 

dear friend,

i couldn’t but write

’cos i keep thinking of you

the more i strive

the less i understand your case

the more frustrated

i become.

 

life is not flat

as you think

like is janus like

two-faced.

 

tell me!

can you recognize smiles

if there are no tears?

can living be

in the absence of death?

where will honesty

and truth stand

if deceit and lies

do not exist?

 

if distrust does not

spread her wares

in the market of life

how can trust be radiated ?

tell me, my friend,

can we recognize steadfastness

if we have never met

disappointment?

 

think, my friend,

think i beseech you

is life not two parts

of the same thing?

identical beans of the same pod?

why then, do we denigrate evil

as if goodness can exist alone?

is hate not love’s alternate sister?

 

tell me if the rain

did not dance on our roofs

can we recognize

the power of the sun?

can we ever plumb

the depth of tranquility

if the cacophony of noise is voided?

tell me,

my friend tell me

can this world

exists in monochrome

of just virtue or vices?

will it be the school

it is expected to be?

can we learn

if there are no opposites?

how nice do you think

it will be?

if stinginess is the sole monarch

who will soothe the sores with

generosity?

 

are light and darkness

not the same aspects

of the same thing, friend?

can we ever understand health

if sickness were not there

can we recognize the sober

without the drunk’s antics?

so how can benevolence

be rewarded

if we don’t have malevolence

to judge it with?

 

so my friend

please think again

 

don’t take that action

don’t pour our the water

from the gourd.

what happened

is just the other side.

i mean the twin fold of existence

it is for you to learn.

if not, dear friend,

you wouldn’t

be here…learning

 i mean learning.

or

don’t you know

this is the only REALM

where you can learn?

So, all learning materials

must be here

including those things

making us wish

 

we were not HERE
