Duality In Unity

Like a coconut shell
I shelter you within

Like a banyan tree
I cool you beneath

I am your buffer
Betwixt earth and sky

I am the soothing emollient
On your tender scab

I am the soft Pashmina
warming your shivers

I am the nurturer
As you suckle me

I am the eternal lover
As you beguile me

I am the eternal yin
To your constant yang

I am the beginning
You are the end

We are two sumo wrestlers
Pleasuring others

We are two heavenly bodies
Ever circling

You are the pea
In the pod of life

You are dynamic
I am passive

We are two atoms
Energizing all

We are two faces of creation
Saint and Satan ever fencing

We represent the duality
Of the universal truth of one

There are in every man, always, two simultaneous allegiances,
one to God, the other to Satan. Invocation of God, or Spirituality,
is a desire to climb higher; that of Satan, or animality, is delight in descent.
Charles Baudelaire
1821-1867, French Poet

When Satan makes impure verses, Allah sends a divine tune to cleanse them.
George Bernard Shaw
1856-1950, Irish-born British Dramatist

But Satan now is wiser than of yore, and tempts by making rich, not making poor
Alexander Pope
1688-1744, British Poet, Critic, Translator
