Turning Sideways Into The Light

By: Marguerite Theophil on Feb 03, 2013

SidewaysTurning sideways into the light can be seen as acknowledging that some encounters are damaging to all involved: no one can win. There may emerge a ‘winner’ or ‘winning side’, but the true result, when we come to our senses and assess the damage, is loss all around that may take years or centuries to heal.

To conventional thinking it sounds too much like defeat or giving up. But in reality, it is neither retreat nor cowardice — rather, it is an intentional strategy to change the ground rules.

Some conflicts obviously, undoubtedly, must be confronted and dealt with. But not all. And that’s a well-kept secret! It is the unnecessary ones which are most debilitating, as they sap our energy and life-force, whenever we ignore our capacity for the judicious use of wisdom and power.

About G...

Evolving and revolving! Douglas Adams & Woody Allen are my soul mates from another era. My quirkiness is an eclectic mix of Jess (New Girl), Dharma and Carrie Bradshaw. Sharing my birthday with Paulo Coelho & Stephen Fry, i'm always reading a book and enjoy having engaging conversations about life and love. I take children, wit and play seriously, very seriously. I'm a renaissance soul who enjoys yoga, vodka with cranberry and doodling. Working in the field of Education and Story-telling, there are only two things i look forward to: Knowing myself and Everything that matters!
