Thought for the Day


If we can stay with the tension of opposites long enough — sustain it, be true to it — we can sometimes become vessels within which the divine opposites come together and give birth to a new reality.
~ Marie-Louise von Franz, Jungian Psychologist

Maureen ... I love this concept and have worked with it a lot ... sometimes I even manage to hold the tension long enough for something new to emerge. It's always amazing.

Great quote. How long is long enough to stay with the tension of opposites? Because sometimes it is a hard fought battle.

Your quote inspired me to write about finding balance today! Thank you -- lol - and I am so out of balance I thought I'd actually written this already to you before I wrote... oh my. hot bath it is.

You'll be amused: this was one of the quotes in today's workshop, and it made me think of my relationship with my husband, so I came home and looked it up to share it with him and Google led me to you! How cool is that?

I talked about you today, and how much my blogsisters mean to me in terms of sharing/support/accountability/intention... I love you all!
