Matthew Spears presents Knowing Self and knowing others. posted at Loving Awareness, saying, "There is paradox in everything about the human experience. For instance, it is through giving we receive, and through receiving we give. It is the “unimportant” in our lives, such as stopping to breath under an unfolding oak tree, that gives importance to other activities. It is the “meaningless” connections in daily living, such as a hello at a checkout at the supermarket, that provides framework and meaning for the more intimate connections we have. These apparent paradoxes are not part of any cosmic game played on us, but rather a daily reminder of the wholeness and perfection of life. Each moment offers glimpses into this, often via these connections with others."
