The spiritual perspective is meant to remind us that we are not victims of our circumstances. However, it is not meant to be an excuse to bypass or avoid our circumstances. Rather, it is meant to infuse us with the infinite power we need to meet our circumstances fully.
When in balance, it gives us the fuel (Yang) we need to metabolize, integrate, and transmute our experiences, combined with the deep patience, self-love and self-compassion which discerns appropriate pace, timing and dose of the transmutive processes for all aspects of our vessel--physical, emotional, mental--such that the healing fire absorbs not through force but through trust and relaxation (Yin). The Yang fire burns through old patterning, while the Yin grounds us in a true and thorough stabilization at a higher functioning level of authenticity, aliveness and well-being.
