💬 quote: Lakeith Stanfield
"THE REASON WHY BEING PURE CAN BE SOMETHING IS BECAUSE THERE ARE THINGS THAT AREN'T LIKE THAT."
– LAKEITH STANFIELD
Light, shadow. Slow, fast. Many times it's the contrast that brings about the most clarity.
When we have a regular meditation practice, we start to notice that the quality of our sit on one day contrasts with the qualities on another day. This can start to help us to see and to understand what's going on. Pay attention to the contrasts; don't shy away from what seems impure. It's how we know what purity can be.
