I have the luxury of being able to work from home from time to time. And right now I am looking out my window. The sun is shining and the trees and flowers are starting to bloom. The change of seasons in full force.

When we were in Florida, I was in awe of the rhythm of the waves. And the beauty of the sunset on the water.

And of course our bodies have rhythms. The beating of our hearts. Our breathing. Sleeping and waking.

We typically think of these things as opposites. Night is the opposite of day. Winter is the opposite of spring. Inhalation is the opposite of exhalation. And in a way, this is true.

But it is also true that these things are all part of one inseparable whole. Light cannot mean anything without dark. Good cannot mean anything without evil.

These concepts can apply at work, too. Projects are interesting or boring. People are nice or jerks. But it's really not as clear cut as our minds like to think. Is it?

One inseparable whole. This is the view of nonduality. Life, just "ising" along in the ever present now. Regardless of our opinion of it!
