      Dear Friends,

      Each experience that one has in the phenomenal world has its
      opposite, and each experience exists only because its opposite
      exists. Heat is given definition by cold, and pain becomes a distinct
      experience only when contrasted with its complement, pleasure.

      If one seeks one of a pair of opposites, he is sure to be equally
      influenced by the other, for the phenomena always go together as a
      pair.

      When one is led to a higher realm from whence he can comprehend how
      the pairs of opposites arise as a unit, he learns to develop the
      philosophy of non-attachment and thus is not affected by the
      influence of the opposites.*


      In loving service,

      Swami J
