The Inner Struggle

Duality, version II
12" x 12" mixed media on canvas


 One cannot reach
the shores of Enlightenment

You must face
the Shadow Warrior,
the aspect of the Self
that you must fight
or incorporate

Contained within it
is every aspect of your
buried fears

Yet until this Warrior
is consciously acknowledged,
all of Life will
remain a duel
that only Duality wins.
