Every so often, I get asked for my take on the political landscape. I tell people truthfully that I tend to adopt the viewpoint of Taoist sages, which holds that the complementary opposing forces in play (the sages dubbed these Yin and Yang) are in an ever-shifting dynamic dance, never gaining a full victory over one another. As one is reaching the zenith, the other is poised 'in the wings' to begin its ascent to dominance, in its turn.
This image has been particularly helpful whenever I got asked to comment on the 'disaster' of Trump presidency in the USA. I would tell people that I was excited about what would rise to meet the need of the hour, about the people and movements that would emerge that could - and would - take things through the crisis point and beyond to new horizons. Psychosynthesis psychology has a short-hand phrase to describe this phenomenon of new forces and resources emerging in response to a crisis: 'from emergency to emergence'.
