9/7/15 – DUALITY

My Sister, Amanda Berliner, please share your story Love One:


An instance of opposition or contrast between two concepts or two aspects of something; a dualism.

CONFLICT. Conflict is everywhere. On the road. In the lunchroom. Walking to work. On the basketball court. Inside. Outside. Upside. Down. Just as long as there are two or more people, the potential for conflict is alive and well. It takes two.
TWO…. two what? Two people? Two groups? Two concepts?
CONCEPTS. So do these concepts have to be separated by flesh and blood? Does one need to reside in one brain while the other resides in another?
ANOTHER. Another what? Another heart. Another head. Another hand. Another affection…within.
WITHIN? Conflict within. Why do I always think the problem is with someone else when I could be at home laying in bed and feel unrest?
Why is the problem always “he” or “she” but never Me?

I want to do one thing, but my feet walk down the opposite path.
The right thing to say is on the tip of my tongue, but then the wrong thing comes out.
Two concepts. Two ideas. Two desires.
It would be complicated if there were more than two, and perhaps if they weren’t so different.

It’s not complicated, but I always make it that way.

“For I do not understand my own actions. For I don’t do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate.”
Romans 7:15

Love is Love,

Amanda Berliner
