There is no gathering the rose without being pricked by the thorns.

Written by Master Charles Cannon

“There is no gathering the rose without being pricked by the thorns.”
     ~Pilpay

We live in a relative reality and all experience is relative. We cannot have one polarity without the other. Positive and negative… love and fear… roses and thorns… such are the relative happenings of consciousness.

In this understanding… consciousness… or life… happens… as the oscillation of the two relative polarities. It is always a mixture of the two and the only constant is change… from one to the other… in an eternal dance of creation.

What is important is who we choose to be in relation to the happenings of consciousness… of life. We can choose the negative and identify with it. Likewise… we can choose the positive and identify with it. Yet… most importantly… we can witness both and identify with neither. Such is the way of all masters. A witnessing consciousness simply watches the happening of consciousness… of life… and allows it to be as it simply is… the happening of consciousness… of life… nothing more… nothing less.

This week… let us cultivate more witness consciousness and allow the happenings of life… of consciousness… to simply be as they are. Such is the way to enduring freedom via the maintenance of holistic experience.
