You see, I've come to realize that I'm an immensely paradoxical individual. I've come to realize that much truth comes in the form of paradoxes. We exist in proverbial gray areas, where one statement or representation of reality can be just as valid as it's opposite. Of course, I can only speak for myself. One inherent example stands out in my consciousness. Personally, I don't devote much of myself at all to religious tenants, but for the sake of discussion, I refer to the "Holy Trinity". In other words, the idea that "God", is a single being that is also represented by three separate figures (The "Father", "Son", and "Holy Ghost"). Again, I'm not one for such a view, but it is the philosophy behind it that I relate to, as I have my own Trinity. The Mind, Body, and Spirit. That is where my faith lies. I believe in the paradox that they are separate entities as well as one essence. Each has their own properties, but must work together.
Without the Body, the mind and spirit have no medium with which to operate. Without the Mind, the spirit is unruly and the body is uncontrolled. Without the Spirit, the mind is grows dull and the body becomes unwilling. Forever connected, like three branches sharing the same trunk, the same roots. What one needs may not always be what another requires, and sometimes, we must nourish one over the others. But there must always be a balance, some sort of equilibrium. If one remains neglected, our balance shifts, and our focus falters, our will diminishes. Tend to them all separately and nurture their connection as one. That is us. We are all one big paradox, and seven billion small ones. Individually All. Indivisibly One.
........But hey, that's just one dude's opinion.
