The Middle Way is not meant as balance. It is not meant as avoiding or combining extremes like being happy / sympathetic with being cranky, afraid, or depressed. It is not meant as avoiding logical distinctions via a fuzzy uncertainty.

The Middle Way is the logical result of not believing that distinctions and boundaries are inherent in reality. One doesn't take positions as if they're real and fixed.   kellyjones00 (593)
