Always straddling the tension and trying not to tap out.
Forever convincing ourselves that we can hold so many contradictory pieces and feelings.
Not only are tension and contradictory pieces OK and normal — they’re the magic sauce.
Carl Jung called the paradox one of our most valued spiritual possessions and a great witness to the truth. He wrote, “Only the paradox comes anywhere near to comprehending the fullness of life.”
Sometimes beautiful. Sometimes terrible. Always deeply human.
