creative tension

Life has an upward thrust, we grow and expand, it is our nature, has been true since the big Bang, since the first slimemold inched toward the light.

A teacher once told me that the optimal conditions for growth, in humans at least, is a state of creative tension, where there is both full honesty and full compassion.

As a reminder I painted this small rock to keep on my desk. Sometimes I flip it so honest is showing, sometimes I need to flip it to kind.
