Quite often my healing journey seems to be the bringing together of opposites. The resolution of paradox and the burning away of conditioning. These things are thematic. Here are a few quotes that are (at least in my mind) somehow related to this process.
Only to the extent that we expose ourselves over and over again to annihilation can that which is indestructible arise within us. In this lies the dignity of daring. The goal of living life and inner peace is not to acquire a state of harmony where nothing can ever trouble us – inner peace allows us to be perturbed, to be insulted, moved, broken, battered, in order that we may discover in doing battle that which awaits us beyond the world of opposites. We must have the courage to face life, to encounter all that is most perilous in the world. ~ Karlfried Graf Durkheim
