Everything is workable

For the witness, everything is workable. Nothing needs to be pushed away. To the contrary: our seemingly most intractable neuroses become the doorway into full life. What emerges when we open this door is a happiness that is not the opposite of sadness, a self-love that is not the opposite of self-hate. It is, rather, a happiness that embraces sadness, and a love that embraces hate. Witness consciousness cultivates a place behind dark and light, behind good and evil — behind even personality, behind even the mind. . . .

“As Rumi says, ‘Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. Meet me there.

Stephen Cope, Yoga and the Quest for the True Self
