Acknowledge the contrast. Sometimes we are only looking at the the bad stuff, and sometimes we are only looking at the good stuff. Let’s look at everything at once and notice how the bad stuff steers us to the good stuff.

We can then appreciate the bad stuff. That appreciation is acceptance of the shadow side, also known as shadow work. That appreciation is expansion. That appreciation is moving out of duality and into unity.

Once we are unified internally as individuals, then we can start the work of being unified externally as a society and culture. Once we learn proper service to self, we can learn proper service to others.
