THE PERFECT PARADOX

When you can hear the silence behind the noise

and feel space among the crowd

when you can sense peace amid chaos and conflict

and see the beauty of the ugly and the drab

 

When solitude never leads to loneliness

and emptiness seems to overflow

when every stranger looks familiar

and every foreign place feels like home

 

Then you’ll know that duality is no more

that you’ve stepped beyond contradiction

into the place of perfect paradox

where everything makes sense.
