The mannerisms and general behavior that Mitch exhibits at the beginning of Tension of opposites book differ from his behavior as described in the flashbacks to his college years to understand the drastic transformation he has undergone in growing older.
I am completely committed to my partnership AND: There is only a small trace of tenderness in his character, a trace that is eventually drawn out by Morrie. Holding the tension of the opposites is a more emotionally intelligent way of operating in the world. Because opposites attract, we are drawn to a partner who is developed at the other end of the spectrum more than we are.
I treat my parents and siblings with honor and respect. My commitment is so strong that I will take my fear with me and go for it anyway. Even during his college days, Mitch had been concerned with impressing others, and did so by hiding his age behind a facade of toughness.
By uniting both sides of the unconscious, we attune to those around us, and to the energy within the earth itself. It is a demanding discipline to hold the tension of the opposites.
I realize that I have something to do with provoking your anger when I acted disrespectfully myself. I feel deeply hurt by the way you just spoke to me with those harsh words and tone of voice.
The importance of love in his life is especially clear to Morrie as he nears his final days, for without the care of those he loves, and who love him, he would perish. When he first saw the doctor, Morrie was able to count to twenty-three.
It is in learning from these polarities through our relationship, and then encompassing both sides, that we become whole. Bringing our mind into balance promotes the healing caused by the breakdown in trust. Some couples would rather make a decision to give the relationship up rather than work with the anxiety of not knowing.
As Morrie sees it, our current culture creates suffering while Morrie has over the years created own culture founded on love, acceptance, and open communication. After he takes his pills, Morrie asks Mitch if he shall tell him what it feels like to be dying.
Mitch flashes back to his freshman year of college. Morrie believes that if we can accept that we can die at any time then we will lead our lives differently.
Morrie can only reach eighteen before he must gasp for air. He is younger than most of the students and tries to look older by wearing an old gray sweatshirt and dangling an unlit cigarette from his lips, even though he does not smoke.
Mitch is shocked by his lack of self-pity, namely the gratitude he feels for his slow, painful death. They eat together in the cafeteria, and Mitch notes that Morrie is a slob when he chews; during their friendship, he has harbored two great desires for Morrie: He asks Mitch questions that are relevant to us all: Mitch nicknames Morrie "Coach," and Morrie tells him that he can be his player, as Mitch can play the parts that Morrie is now too old for.

His reunion with Morrie helps him to realize that his priorities are backwards, and to eventually tap the goodness that he has somehow lost during his years as a cutthroat journalist.
The tension can be uncomfortable, but when we practice on these little pains, we can be expansive in our thinking. You take certain things for granted, even when you know you should never take anything for granted.
From this integration there arises a divine "tension," allowing for a new consciousness to unfold. How this shadow side is historically connected to goddess worship the Latin word for "mother" is mater, the root word for "matter" is just one of the insights that Woodman offers on this unique, live presentation.
Love, he says, always wins. When we put all our efforts into keeping everything tacked down, we lose. When a serious breakdown occurs, as a protective mechanism, we feel our heart begin to close to our partner. One afternoon, he complains to Morrie of feeling confused about what is expected of him versus what he wants for himself.
I first read this book over ten years ago and recently saw the movie starring Hank Azaria and Jack Lemmon.Tension of Opposites One of the greatest aspects of humanity is that no two people are identical; rather, every individual has his own perspective, beliefs, and ideas.
