I know what you mean about conflict - it disturbs the shores for sure. But you're right, there's perhaps nothing more powerful than inner resistance.

Glad to have you back posting. Once again, these are words I can use because I (as well as many folks, I'm sure) relate to them. The description of the screw is vivid and apt, unfortunately. But I'll try to remember to ride above the things I can't control. Wisdom is hard to come by and lessons usually hard to learn by example instead of painful practice, but I will try to learn this one and spare myself some pain.


"And by making this choice for myself and myself only, I am doing what I can to shift the energy for my entire family and all of our ancestors and descendants in all directions of time. What could be more powerful than that?"

All I can say is Wow. Thank you for reminding me of this important and profound lesson.

Conflict is like a screw - how very vivid and true.
I'm always amazed at how my physical body reacts to conflict. I too am learning to "let go" and not plummet and try to 'fix it'.

Your posts are always so insightful.


I know... how sometimes the air can be filled with unrest or bad energy and you can't tell why... what I love is that power that you have to change things just with your own peace and center. I never thought of that... Roxanne

Oh my goodness, that sculpture is amazing, it really gives visual emphasis to what you're saying. Even when you write about the "down" side of relationships, you still have a balance. Other than being there, that screw hasn't changed her attitude at all.
