John O’Donohue, writer and scholar, on duality *

Standard

I have often thought that something is either “good” or “bad” and that thinking makes it so. (from Shakespeare’s Hamlet)

But O’Donohue believes that “being” is within us—and aspects that are made dual, like soul/sense, God/human, memory/possibility are separated in the mind. There are actually no barriers when you keep imagination alive.

Imagination transcending our broken, categorical thought: Now that’s exciting!

With those thoughts to ponder, I offer O’Donohue’s comment:

“It’s strange to be here. The mystery never leaves you.”
