The Ballad of the Opposites

The more you talk the less you will listen

The more light you absorb the less you will reflect.

The harder your exterior the more vulnerable your interior.

Disagreeable people start religions but agreeable people follow them.

The more you help someone the less able they will be to help themselves.

The more knowledge you bond with the less perceptive you will be.

The more masculine he becomes the more feminine will she. And the more masculine she becomes the more feminine will he.

The more you push a pendulum to one side, the more potential energy it gathers to move in the opposite direction.

After all, a planet gives us day and then night because it spins. And it only spins in one direction because both sides move in opposite directions.

Once you understand this ballad of the opposites or everything there is to understand you will finally understand nothing at all.

Therefore be at peace and rest assured things are, and only are because they are the way they are.

Existence is contention, and life, a dance between extremes.
