Hold….and learn to think with the heart

If we can hold the conflict of the opposites –
what we want and what destiny has ordained –
if we can hold while mind thinks and heart feels
we can learn to think with the heart.

Marion Woodman, Jill Mellick, Coming Home to Myself

 

Prior to holding the conflict of the opposites simultaneously, at once, we alternate between knowing each side, flipping our attention back and forth…..sometimes rapidly, sometimes very very slowly with years in between.   As we alternate, we eliminate the other pole.  When we arrive in the middle, we hold both…..together……and a door opens.   When this door opens it changes us…..somehow.  We can spend the rest of our lives learning how to cross the threshold where we are changed…forever.
