Two Co-Existing Forces

It seems that we are always facing two kinds of opposing forces in life, whether inside of us or out in the external world. 

I want to do and I’m able to do, yet I cannot because I’m not free.

Nature is so great when it shines and rains at the right time with the right amount, but when hurricane or mud slide occurs, its disaster is so devastating.

Every day in our life, we have to choose between wants and needs, good and bad, yes and no.  For example, there are many exhibition opportunities for me, yes, I want to show, I’m tempted to show. I’ve the desire to show off, how could I deny it?  But, on the other hand, I’m so busy, things get chaotic.  Which show shall I enter?  I have to be selective, then I must decide which painting shall I enter?
