There is nothing outside Natural or Divine

I tattooed my body recently. A friend of mine warned me that because I was introducing an unnatural element to my body, the ink, it was going to react making me feel sick. And he was right. I had to rest for a full day. But the use of the word “unnatural” made me think: Is it even possible to experience “unnatural” if it’s true that Life is all inclusive? There seem to be a split between what’s man-made and what’s natural. When did we separate from Nature? It’s obviously a concept because the reality is that we only exist because we have a body that is part of Nature.

.
The ink is natural because is man-made, and man is Nature.
A separation of any kind is an illusion. It comes from the limitation of the mind to perceive one side of the coin at a time instead of the coin as a whole.

.
It’s very liberating to shift from an “exclusive” to an “inclusive” consciousness. It means stepping away from the resistance of rigid concepts to the acceptance of the ever-changing experience of Life, where not only night and day coexist, but also friends and lovers, fear and love, sadness and happiness.

.
By embracing our negative aspects as much as the positives, we acknowledge the Divine in us.
