Illusion of Progress

We tend to associate
with forward movement.

But forward movement
is not necessarily
if in the wrong direction

In fact,
it may be
the opposite
of progress.

May we check
our direction
before assuming

Opposite vs Perpendicular

we pit two concepts
as opposites,
when, in fact,
they are perpendicular.

For example,
if we pit
honesty and kindness
as opposites,
we may feel forced
to choose either or.

But if we pit them
as perpendiculars,
we can aim
to learn a new choice
with which to do both
at the same time.
