Life involves an endless reckoning and experimenting with balance.
As we learn and experience, the fulcrum shifts, and we find new equilibriums.
These two blogs respresent contrasting ends on the balance. Ego leads us through the world, and presents our face to others. But too much ego is vanity, desperation and despair. The sublime, the empty, on the other hand (or the other side of the brain) provides a deep richness, sense of connection and love. Yet it will not feed us, cloth us, and maintain us in the world. Each side can play tricks and appear through illusion. Through the heart, a balance is found.
