In recent years many of us have felt like stand-ins in our own lives: understudies playing a role on short notice while we waited for our "real" selves to return. We've been in dress rehearsal for the quickening, and it's been a flume ride of the first order.

The good news is that density is transmuting into destiny faster than we can say "anagram". The world stage is welcoming us as the human holons we are, stepping up to the plate and into our soul missions as never before.

From Resistance to Resonance

Holding the both/and has become paradoxically more challenging and much easier than in the past. We've had more than a taste of primordial chaos and pain; many of us are still slogging through the morass. The flip side is primordial joy: what sociologist Emile Durkheim called collective effervescence (the idea that communally induced ecstasy cements social bonds) and anthropologist Victor Turner termed communitas: the spontaneous love and solidarity that can arise within a community of equals.

The unknown is both scary and powerful. Resistance cripples. Resonance emancipates.

As Heraclitus explained in his famous quote about not stepping twice into the same river, we can have constancy precisely because there is flux; it's a primordial truth. Balance means loving all of who we have been, are, and will become. Or, as Shakespeare put it half a millennium ago, "This above all: to thine own self be true/And it must follow, as the night the day/Thou canst not then be false to any man."
