The Stillpoint!

Today I receive an announcement of a workshop where there will be an exploration of, among other things, "holding the tension between the stillpoint and the creative fire."

Emily Hanlon then includes this poem to explain the stillpoint. Perhaps this is what I was trying to say earlier. I'm trying to balance my pendulum swing.


The Stillpoint
by Haven Trevino

The pendulum swings to and fro
From darkness to light
From sickness to health
From goodness to evil
And back again.
It’s enough to make anyone confused.
The sage has found the stillpoint
between:
Remaining neutral
She teaches by living a simple
honest life;
She creates by allowing,
She feeds without forcing,
And gives by receiving.
She heals by perceiving
One’s inner wholeness,
Then lets go.
Because she lets go,
She’s always in touch.
