Live the Contradictions

“Woe to those who call evil good and good evil, who substitute darkness for light and light for darkness, who substitute bitter for sweet and sweet for bitter. Woe to those who are wise in their own opinion and clever in their own sight.” Isaiah 5: 20, 21

Hey, man, ‘Live the Contradictions!’

As a fundamental rule.

It’s the ‘new truth’ that sustains us…

PLUS…it’s Eastern…(So, it’s cool.)


Both/And’s true, and don’t forget it!

Either/Or’s so yesterday!

Both/And merges into Oneness…

Contradictions melt away


There are really no distinctions…

Male is female…Dark is light.

Up is down…(and that’s for certain!)

False is true and wrong is right.


Reason’s really out of season

Both/And really hits the spot!

Don’t let ‘what is’ trip you up, man…

We know now it’s really not!


It’s the ‘Creed of all is Oneness’

It’s the Broad Way to the end…

Everything is Anything now,

Even Nothing (!)..Just pretend!


Here’s the Broad Way out of error!

Good is evil, Evil’s good!

Just transcend those contradictions

Trade in all those ‘oughts’ and ‘shoulds.’


False is true, and true is false now…

Contradiction sets you FREE!

Hey, no lie, man!…It’s just crazy!

Watch how we ‘diss’—honesty


Oh, that ‘god’—thought that once nagged you?

You can do without it now!

Just transcend it, morph and blend it…

Recognize, boy, ‘THAT ART THOU’!!
