“Right in your being there is shutting down and opening up.”
I love this line: right in your being, right in the essence of what you are (and aren’t!) there is ceasing and arising, dying again and being reborn, an endless dance of yin and yang. Right in your being, there is a dialectic paradox of being and not-being, a churning vector of endless change.
