Your strength is in speaking up whilst holding opposing forces.
In the words of Carl Jung:
“Walk the razor’s edge between the tension of opposites. ”
One must have the courage to think for one’s self, question what is assumed, and disentangle one’ s self from one’s thinking.
Weakness is to follow your “thoughts”.
Strength is to breathe and question one’s self. What is my motive? What do I fear? Am I responsible? Am I enslaved by my mind, my thoughts, my beliefs, my ideologies? Am I courageous enough to be?
