You do not have to choose between two aspects of who you are.
The idea that you should have to choose between them is a falsehood, a mistaken belief put forth by those with a very limited understanding.
No choice involved. The entire premise is an illusion.
Never linger too long with the ignorant,
throw stones at their talk.
Walk only with the lovers,
the mirror of the soul gets rusty when
dipped in muddy water.
