“An acrobat does not maintain his poise on a tightrope by trying to hold perfect balance. Instead, by letting his balance shift back and forth, he keeps finding new equilibrium. Similarly an alive relationship is continually going in and out of balance…So instead trying to hold on to some ideal state of harmony, we can learn to use the very act of starting to fall into one extreme or the other to wake up and see where we are, and in waking up, to find a new equilibrium.”

John Welwood – Journey of the Heart
