The Way of Extremes

Buddhism is called the middle way, which has always puzzled me. For me, it seems more a way of extremes.

Whether I see it or not…

I am 100% not-human (as Absolute and Big Mind), and I am 100% human (as small self).

I am 100% detached, and 100% engaged.

I 100% embrace one end of each polarity, and I 100% embrace the other end of the polarity.

The process of awakening is just to bring this, which already is, into awareness. To find myself as already it. And the process of integration is to live it, bring it into daily life.
