Tension endures because the nature of all things is cyclical, like the ocean tides or the seasons; we are all influenced by constant movement in our environment. That movement produces tension as we release what was to step into what’s emerging. Not always comfortable, the cycles demand that we strengthen our ability to pull back for perspective and perceive what’s occurring through a more holistic and systemic lens. Every person has their cycles of growth and development. However, these cycles don’t happen in a vacuum. Cycles interconnect and intertwine. Our recognition and understanding of those cycles change as our life context evolves. Societal shifts in education, economics, governance, and ecology add to the tension pressure. Then, we must also consider the role of technology in this complex network of systems.
