The Magic of Balance

My friend and editor sent me a picture that she said described the protagonist in the book I was writing. It showed a female figure with arms outstretched against a field of stars trying to balance on the back of an enormous horse rearing up on its hind legs. She didn't say that it was what I had to learn.

Understanding didn’t come as an aha moment. It was more as if I finally saw how to meld together all I had learned. It was the magical balancing of polarities: masculine and feminine, spirit and soul, Heaven and Earth, left brain rational and right brain intuition, aggression and receptivity. I'd spent a lifetime focused on one half of each pair.
