On Truth as Paradox

All truth is paradox. Everything true in the world has innate contradictions…

… and this turns out to be a reason for hope.

If you arrive at a place in life that is miserable, it will change, and something else about it will also be true. So paradox is an invitation to go deeper into life, to see a bigger screen, instead of the nice, safe lower left-quadrant where you see work, home, and the country. Try a wider reality, through curiosity,awareness, and breath. Try actually being here. What a concept.
