The greater the tension, the greater is the potential. — Carl Jung

Our lives can be filled with tension at times. We have two choices, we can be stiff or rigid and we will snap or we can be flexible and bend or stretch like a rubber band. Earl Nightingale indicated that one feature of mentally healthy people is that they are flexible under stress.

In a wind storm it is best to be a blade of saw grass rather than a large oak tree. The grass will flex with the wind while the oak will snap. Now of course in matters of integrity we must stand strong, but in life we will be hit with stress and tension where resilience through flexibility is essential.

Life is good!

Go, Go, Go…

Good Morning Dan,

As always thank you for your service! Today I woke to the stress of looking for work, the mind racing, fear, pain and it gives me the opportunity to begin my morning rituals. The positive affirmations, reading your blog, prayer, and the rest which allow me to be freed of the bondage of self. Thus, after reading your blog this morning and all those rituals we must do to stay sober, I know they are helping, shifting me move towards becoming more flexibile. We all need to keep hope alive and I am so grateful of all I have gained thru meeting you Dan. There is not a day which goes by that I do not do what you suggested to keep my hopes and dreams alive!
For that gift, a true blessing, I will always be grateful.
