Tension of Opposites

The Tension of Opposites keeps popping up in my head, so I started a list. Common ones:

Ancient Chinese concept – yin and yang circling each other in the dance of life and death.

The thesis and the antithesis in writing.

The first theme and the second theme in sonatas.

Action and contemplation.

And some not so obvious ones:

The more you find the anchor in your core on the exhale, the more you can expand your breath.

The more you want to bend backwards, the more you need to extend the back side of the body.

Carl Jung – the more we acknowledge our shadow parts and give them a voice, the more they will actually back off.

Our emotional need to attach and our willingness to release.
