I love this picture. This is the duality that exists within each of us. The lion and the lamb; The feather and the rock. We exist always in a state of duality wherein lies our ability to choose.
We can choose our suffering or we can choose our peace. If we choose peace, do we lose the foundation of who we are? Likewise, if we choose suffering,
do we lose the foundation of who we are?
Look at the photo......both are balanced on a single foundation. Achieving balance means both can exist within us and both can be balanced with the core of who we are. Transform your suffering into wisdom and you will find peace that balances out the suffering. Foster the feather and the rock within you, both are equally as valuable.
