When you are on a path of self-discovery and spirituality it is not uncommon to waffle between opposing poles. Sometimes you feel connected to the universe, you feel you are part of one overarching, whole energy. That there is this higher meaning in life, and everyone is an integral part of it.

On the other hand, you often get pulled back into the material world of normal life where you feel separate from everyone and everything. Then you question if there is meaning in life, is there one universal answer for us all.

The opposing experiences can feel disorienting and confusing. It is hard to know what the truth is or if there is one truth. It’s hard to integrate those experiences into one thought system or belief. So, similar to the Mu Is a Valid Answer tool (4.6), perhaps to ease the suffering of trying to figure it out, you accept that both paths are valid.
