An Apparent Contradiction
reality is one, therefore both "inner" and "outer";
both work on the self and action in society are necessary;
acceptance and resistance have to be two sides of a single coin.
We accept some aspects of reality but change others. Thus:
we accept that we need food but have changed the ways that we produce it;
we accept the law of gravity but have learned how to fly.
Inwardly, accept and let go of a personal past.
Politically, understand and resist current oppression.
We are Arjuna and the class struggle is the battlefield of Kurukshetra.
