A well balanced life is misunderstood as aiming for everything positive, perfect, in equal measures, whereas true balance accepts the co-existence of opposing forces. Exploring one’s shadow side is fear inducing but the darkness also holds intrigue, mystery and unknown possibilities. Shedding the past and ideas of what’s good allows for the future self to manifest as a whole being - built by the light and the darkness within.
The soul’s journey of life to death, and its transmigration into other beings is metempsychosis. Can you metemsuperpsoche within your own being?

Any tree could read my genetic code." - Carl Sagan, Cosmos EP2
