There is no essential difference
between Ultimate Reality and Conventional Existence;
between Emptiness and Appearance;
between Being and Becoming;
between Universal and Particular;
between Feminine and Masculine.
While they can be thought independently,
in actuality they arise interdependently,
with their cooperative interplay creating
this fantastical flux that we call life.
It is through their union,
and not in their opposition,
that existence scales
the heights of intensity,
These powers of two
exponentially ascend to infinity—
a progressive growth nurtured
by the love shared between them.
For Love is the engine,
the Force which provides
the emotive energy for play.
The Ultimate, the feminine,
is the vessel made of nothing,
a reservoir of infinite potential.
The Conventional, the masculine,
is the performative algorithm
mediating potential and actual,
a process of perpetual becoming.
Who are we
but the children
of these divine powers?
By harmonizing this duality
within the singularity of ourselves
in their highest expressions,
we gain the capacity or power
to enact boundless creativity,
to have unconditional compassion,
to produce immeasurable wealth,
to raise bare life
to life divine.
Though there is suffering in the world,
to be alive at all is a true blessing.
To quest is to find this inner harmony,
such that we can be of service to all that is,
and ensure that love overwhelms lack,
so that the suffering of all sentient beings
is one day finally eliminated.
I dedicate this prose to my dear
Mother and Father,
to all those strangers
who make my life possible.
I promise that I will not rest
until the final achievement
of the resolution of all contradiction
comes to fruition.
