Everything about life – and about a human being – is leading us towards the Middle Path.
A seed is sown in the moist, dark soil (feminine essence) and the seedling moves towards the Light (masculine essence), defying gravity. That’s the yearning of the Life Force. It moves from ‘being’ to ‘doing’ – defying all odds.
The roots of the plant are always held securely in the moist, rich, dark soil, that allows the roots to penetrate deep. More secure the roots are, more secure is the movement of the plant towards Light. More the growth and evolution.
The ‘being’ supports the ‘doing’. The Feminine supports the Masculine. Without the support of the dark, the light can’t be ‘processed’ into nourishing/ life-supporting food.
Scientists have puzzled for years about how ‘photosynthesis’ can capture roughly 95% of energy from the sunlight in just one million-billionth of a second. The answer may well lie in the ‘support’ of the ‘dark’ behind the scenes.
Where in your life are you feeling shaky? Are your roots strong enough?
