the truth about paradox

paradoxIn yesterday’s post, I wrote, “Eventually, the body will take me back to bed for the strange sleep I’ve been experiencing for a while–the paradox that something is awake even while the body is resting.” I referred to paradox as though it truly exists.

Today I saw for the first time that paradox only has reality from the relative viewpoint of the separate self. When I point to an example of “both-and,” it is a statement of duality. With the deeper understanding that all manifestation is a rainbow–beautiful, and an illusion–paradox cannot stand.
