Way by Contrast

Darkness is not known
until light comes into picture.

Water is not known
until the fish is brought out of it.

Life is not recognized
until death robs it away.

Wrong is not known
until right is shown.

Bondage is not seen
until freedom is experienced.

Hence no meaning of darkness
where there is no light
No meaning of bondage
where there is no freedom.

Everyone living in oblivion
until opposite has been experienced.

But then again what is opposite
except a different perspective
a different aspect
a different experience?

Giving up both
only until both are realized
one leaves to the other shore
where opposites no longer reign.

Hence freedom too has to be given up
upon giving up bondage
for something beyond
to arise.

What is it?
No words, no meaning, no definition.
