Meeting Beyond What is Right and Wrong

“Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing
there is a field. I will meet you there.”

Life is ambiguous. It plays out in shades of gray more often than black and white. Sometimes the answer to the question of who is right and who is wrong doesn’t matter. Sometimes good people do bad things. Sometimes bad people do good things. Incessant judgment of others pursuits and passions can be futile, energy wasted that is better spent somewhere else.

Create, share, and love. Embrace. Care. Place acceptance above condemnation. Prioritize understanding.

Seek the distant field that exists where we overcome thoughts of right and wrong. There are good people there.
