opposites

The servile earth and the lofty sky: without this opposite the sky would not be so high. The low and high of the earth are winter and spring. The low and high of the body are sickness and health. By means of these opposites the world is kept alive; by means of these doubles souls feel fear and hope. Nature teaches through opposites so that you will have two wings to fly, not one.” – Rumi (image via mystic-lady)
