2 Kawok 2 Wayeb – The Third Day of Wayeb

The third day of Wayeb focuses on acceptance. When we combine this with the day 2 Kawok, we can understand that it can be about our acceptance of the duality that gives rise to new life in our world.

Whilst unity is a desirable state to strive for, it is from duality that new life emerges. We may grow within our mothers, but it is not until the separation of birth occurs that independent life begins. Acceptance of  opposites, is what takes us back towards unity, completing the cycle. In this day of acceptance, the question may be how is it possible to embrace polarities in order to bring new life into the world.
