Every day we encounter tensions between positives and negatives, mind and body, self and environment, self and others, and personality and soul, it is the ever evolving dualities in our lives.
Tension in our lives is the force of personal evolution; we need it for it sparks creativity and higher consciousness. How you may ask….it is simple, if we are not comfortable with a situation we try to improve it.
Our experience of opposites causes tension to arise for these opposites fight each other as each one struggles for dominance; the tension is transformed or diffused when two opposite dimensions of reality are brought together in balance and in wholeness.
Instead of avoiding or resisting tension when it arises, identify the opposing forces at play. Make space for each of them to be there together and the tension will transform. Know that tension is an integral part of growth.
