“And the day came when the risk to remain tight in a bud was more painful than the risk it took to blossom” Anaïs Nin.
Yep, we are now four days from publishing The Code of Opposites…
It is risky to come out, as coming out means something WILL change. Have you ever noticed that actually feeling this resistance (to change) is uncomfortable? Speaking of friction, we know that a pearl in nature is formed when an irritant works its way into a particular species of oyster, mussel, or clam. From there, the mollusk secretes a fluid to coat the irritant until, layer after layer, a lustrous pearl is formed. And it makes me wonder… What if we accepted that the friction is what will eventually make us glisten? As for the science part, have you noticed how methodical TCO is in pushing every possible button and other self-imposed boundaries?
In our case, the friction has been beyond surreal, not only between Michael and I, but also with reality (or “God”), thus the coined word “science-friction!” And yet, the process itself isn’t new… That’s what the Passion of Christ is all about; when a divine being knows to transmute his pain by expressing an emotion so compelling that it inspires bravery in the community.
It is clear to us that our many fights would not have occurred if we weren’t both individually struggling for Power… Thankfully, beyond our fights, there is also an abiding trust of each other. However, it is the replaying of “real life” drama that led us to feel the soul of our subtitle: “A Sacred Guide for Playing with Power and Not Getting Burned.” Amazing grace: seeing the purpose of our fighting, we became source over it, and could then witness the troublesome behavior spontaneously auto-destruct.
Sooo… Are you willing to invite the friction until your pain morphs into your passion? As for it being a “science,” is there a passage in TCO or our newsletters which inspired you to surrender the fight? Would you be willing to share it in a blurb? If so, please reach out.
Until next week… For now, be well!
Maha & Michael
