     Middle path provides a transcendental perspective and vision. Either or is a dualistic perspective causing split, divisiveness, imbalance, separateness and disharmony. These are the ingredients of pain, suffering and destruction. Religious, political and ideological wars have been wedged through out history by holding on to the bipolar extremist  and rigid positions.The perspective which mindfully relates to opposite perspectives opens an avenue of inclusiveness and connectedness.

    I have a few friends who hold  the extremist view"our way is the only right way" for every one's salvation. Sadly, such a view excludes others like me who have a different spiritual orientation. It is my position that Truth is one which is realized and expressed in different ways by different people. Dalai Lama calls it "secular spirituality". According to Dalai Lama anyone can follow their chosen spiritual path without  judging and putting down other's spiritual path ways. This is the middle way, a way to create universal harmony.

    May we relate to others who are different from us with mindfulness, open -mindedness and open- heartedness!
