Balancing

In wondering about red and blue I've come to thinking about a relationship of the Buddhist teaching of the Middle Way and the wisdom of remaining unattached to positionality and identification.

It's like a high wire act-not identifying with a position allows the infinite adjustments required to stay balanced.

I keep trying to remind myself all the time to find the Middle Way. My tendency in a lot of things is to go a little overboard at time.

I find many times in dreams there is a tension going on between 2 sides of our personality. I think someone once called it a dynamic conflict. Ideally, I would like to help those opposites find some common ground and learn to work together.

I've noticed that tension too and perhaps some of it is inevitable in life. I am thinking that for myself the going overboard, or leaning too much in one direction or the other is caused by the identification, that without that things would flow more easily.

So . . . would the Middle Way be purple? ;-) I couldn't resist!

Ha! Cassandra, it very well may be. :)
