Another Day in Paradox

I'm still savoring Yearnings: Embracing the Sacred Messiness of Life by Irwin Kula (although a number of other books await, so I'm going to finish this meal before too long...)

In light of the October issue of What Shines, which focuses on the oxymoronic nature of life, I wanted to include this quote that leads the book:

"Keep two pieces of paper in your pockets at all times.
One that says, 'I am a speck of dust.'
And the other, 'The world was created for me.'"

~ Rabbi Bunim of P'shiskha

You can't get more humbly absolute than that.
