Dualities of life

The Life

Dualities of Life

Painters, writers, philosophers, etc, etc all try to explain life. A painter love drawing it using a variety of colors, strokes, techniques, etc. Similarly, various other methods are used by various persons but the life is beyond all. It is not only difficult but beyond the reach of mind, may be because the mind is actually a very small subset of life.
One day, while reading Osho, I read life is in dualities. I have tried to paint the dualities of life.
The dualities are everywhere, Day- Night, Light-Dark, Male-Female, Live-Evil, Birth-Death, ……
There is always something opposite attached to original. Infact, that opposite thing complement the original and both in totality convey the full meaning of existence. E.g male and female both are required for the world, night is essential to feel the day, and so on.

    Duality (to me) is our own juxtaposition to life. Like you said, it complements is, and conveys the full meaning of existence. We are on a journey to see beyond the labels…

    A very beautiful painting indeed!

    “The light of the sun, the moon, and the stars shines bright:
    The melody of love swells forth, and the rhythm of love’s detachment beats the time.
    Day and night, the chorus of music fills the heavens; and Kabir says
    “My Beloved One gleams like the lightning flash in the sky.”

    Do you know how the moments perform their adoration?
    Waving its row of lamps, the universe sings in worship day and night,
    There are the hidden banner and the secret canopy:
    There the sound of the unseen bells is heard.
    Kabir says: “There adoration never ceases; there the Lord of the Universe sitteth on His throne.”
    The whole world does its works and commits its errors: but few are the lovers who know the Beloved.
    The devout seeker is he who mingles in his heart the double currents of love and detachment, like the mingling of the streams of Ganges and Jumna;
    In his heart the sacred water flows day and night; and thus the round of births and deaths is brought to an end.”

    – Kabir

    First, thank you very much for sparing your valuable time on my blog and complimnting it.
    Secondly, I also feel that there is a music in winds, a language with trees, poetry in nature and so on.
    i think life is there till the time we are in dualities but as we start going deeper into it, the dualities also start disappearing. When the opposites start complimenting us then we start becoming complete.
    we are incomplete or in struggle till the ime we are in dualities.
    as in gurbani “jab hum the, tab tum nahi, abb tumhi, hum nahi” from Kabir.
    the struggle is on and there is a fun in being a struggler too.

  3. i absolutely agree with you. for the sake of a beautiful world man and woman should live harmoniously, lovingly and respectfully.

    Yin and Yang are inseparable dualities and in human psychology, we explore and research much on this… Great abstract painting Nirmal! Loved the theme.

  6. Loved this!! So perfectly expressive and so well executed!! Really shows us what our minds are like and how they perceive things. Great work!
