Liberation is in-between
A lifetime fighting sides
one versus the other
the right against the wrong
jumping back and forward
running away from the undesirable, the evil, the negative.
Mistaking sides for who you are.
Until you give yourself permission to stay,
rest and notice both sides.
Until you realize this is peace
the place you've been searching
right here, in the in-between.
The place you never fought for
the only strategy you haven't experimented with.
The place you feared the most,
more than the one you hated being in.
In between has always been the invitation for wholeness
In between has always been liberation of suffering.
