Yes, the middle way…but it is not a balance; it is a recognition of the essential nature of things. All phenomena express both a measurable and un-measurable, spirit and matter if you will. Water, for example, has measurable physical properties; while at the same time soothing spiritual properties. The essence of water is neither physical or spiritual, but instead, the potentiality imbued in the universe that forms water when oxygen and hydrogen are proximate. We are the same. If we project all good on a God and all evil on a demon, then we become blind to the middle way.
