What makes everything work, the oppressive and relentless grinding of the wheel? Or, is it the consistent steady motion of the engine?
Perhaps, it is both, life is full of in’s and out’s for sure. It certainly, has its ups and its downs. There are many variations: the good versus the bad, the hot and the cold, both the salty and the sweet.
Combination of Salty / Sweet
Opposites sometimes enhance! They attract our attention and help us distinguish differences between two things, because they are contrary in their composition to each other. Complementary counterparts of elements are to be respectfully acknowledged and celebrated because they add texture and spice to what would otherwise be mundane.
Too much of a good thing is just that, too much!
I like to think of myself as a person who enjoys the sparks in life; the rays of light that shoot up from the constant friction of smoldering situations until they finally have reached the boiling point and explode in a radiant and overwhelming vibrant display of illumination. There is an example of this type of unharnessed energy in volcanic eruptions, fireworks and in every classical music composition.
In turbulent times one has to appreciate the yin and the yang of his or her situation, the blending of both states, and the natural duality and imbalance of life resulting in unimagined insights that can only come out of our unbridled circumstances. It is from this perspective that we can only fully enjoy the full potential for change and the thrill of transformation that comes into play.
To recognize and take advantage of the good, two components must exist (both the bad and its counterpart the good) and there must be discord (a conflict that inspires variance) prior to the outcome brought about by the act of separation of the two. The natural order of things demands an eventual disjointing (as we see fit) of two contradictory phases before the unification of one or the other can be manifested.
Understanding of this natural phenomenon reminds us to embrace the psychology of conflict. It prevents us from being inhibited by feelings of trepidation in times of turmoil and allows us to be in sync with the flow of all things even those that are disconnected and initially disruptive to our lives.
