Notes in the Raw #18

When people start w/ outside or inside path - it sets up polarity, but middle path jumps out of polarity and goes into connection with unity.

***I'm going to depart from my "RAW" format for a minute to talk about resolution of paradox, and what this post means, including some other Wujifa philosophy for clarity.

When we talk about "middle" we don't mean middle in terms halfway between this and that. As far as you zoom in towards that middle, you're always going to have half be "this" and half be "that".

We're talking about the resolution of the paradox. The third thing.

Einstein said that no problem could be resolved from the state of mind that created it. In essence, this means that the paradox can't be resolved by finding the right "blend" on the slider.

Yin/Yang, Wuji. Wuji is not a point between Yin and Yang, but something outside of yin and yang. It's not a 50/50 blend. It's something completely different. To put it in physical terms, it's not "tilt the pelvis back" or "tilt the pelvis forward"... you could get stuck on that forever. It's not a tilting it just right and then holding it in that position. The solution is "Drop". You can (I can [and have]) get stuck on fiddling around with a slider, when in fact, the solution is the third thing - jumping outside of the slider in a way that accomplishes what you've been looking for all along.
