POLARITY AND UNTYING KNOTS – a conversation with my friend Dorit Weintal.
We were talking about some new year’s eve heated conversations about racism and immigration. Polarized issues. I was saying that there’s no point confronting “facts” against each other. So called facts just line up according to the values, viewpoints and instruments used by the researchers.
Resonating with this, Dorit came up with this wonderful insight: << If you want to release/untie a knot you can’t do it by pulling hard on the ends of the tangled rope in one direction or another. You need, instead, to take the knot in your fingers and delicately massage it, turning it this way and that, move it around to let it relax (moving your whole body with it as well). This way the openings will be found. >>
