the principle of equivalence

The principle of Equivalence is a very basic tenet of shamanism, and to many indigenous peoples.

Living with this principle demands respect for all existence. Where are our prejudices? Do we prefer body to mind, endings to beginnings? Ageing vs. birthing, motion vs. restriction, the self vs. the landscape around us. We all carry prejudices of which we need to be aware, because every incompleteness is (potentially) a violation. A beginner step is to accept our complexities, and what cannot be solved.

This takes practice.
