...Nothing escapes consciousness and the fruits of our misdeeds spring unexpected throughout our lives. Unexpected….and often unexamined. Leaving us to ponder the “why me” of our existence.
We are not and can never be removed from one another. We are links in an endless chain of further links into a world of deeper understanding. If we knew this in our wisest hearts, nothing could ever be just business, it could only be all business. The business of loving another as we ourselves would wish to be loved. The only business there is.
I remember I was being artsy in Oakland, and then had to go get work. I started wearing my suit, because I had to "get back into it." It felt so weird. I felt sooo alien in the suit! I had been playing a lot of music, wearing my African outfits and such... later, after a day of feeling weird, I was in my bathroom and realized, the suit, the artist clothes, it is just 2 sides of the same thing, and I realized that, hey, I wear the suit very well thank you! and came up with a graphic to remember this idea of the supposed opposites not being so opposite after all! It is called "The Dot" and I think Groupee who makes this discussion software now lets me include my FLASH GRAPHIC in my post! Let's see...

Mouse-over the dot in the middle and it is a Pharoah being rowed across, and the point of it is that the 2 sides, categories if you wish, are really not 2 but sides of 1?? somefin like dat..
Thanks for sharing this Eric! Hoping to hear more.
