: Methinks you've put your finger on the way
: most folks get around the entire
: "either/or" mindset, i.e., by
: avoiding the comparisons all together.
: Even Laozi seems to say "if you deem
: something beautiful, something else then
: must also be deemed ugly" .
: My way is somewhat different. Because, for
: me, something can be (and is) both beautiful
: and ugly at the same time, or noble and
: not-noble as in this case, there is no
: reason to avoid characterizations at all.
: Maybe the next question, then, is the net
: result the same? Would my way and the ti tao
: zhe way produce the same internal outcome?
: Who knows? (-: IF there is a difference, it
: might be in the fullness of the experience.
: warm regards
Rene, I think I've spotted where our differences lie...my attention goes to what-is, yours to how you feel and think about what is. Is that a fair assessment?
