3. TODAY'S SELF-OBSERVATION
Unlike most folks with a spiritual dimension, I do not believe that love is the underpinning power behind the universe, but rather consciousness manifesting as a wave, with a positive peak and a negative trough. Consciousness is both creation and destruction in balance. For this reason I have no belief in some ultimate victory of love, but rather in an eternal dynamic of positive and negative.
I do not find this bleak at all - whilst light and dark remain in balance, the universe gets to know itself better, and so knows a peace that is beyond the light/dark dynamic - a peace that has no opposite, that comes from understanding.
