One half of you loves, and the other half of you, at times, hates. This is the Forked Medicine Pole of Man. The clever thing the Medicine has taught us here is this. One Half of you must understand the Other Half or you will tear yourself apart... But remember, Both Halves must try to understand. Even within yourself it is hard to know which of the Forks is which." - From Seven Arrows by Hyemeyohsts StormSeven Arrows

You're afraid to feel. You want to be a vegetable. Now you're beginning to feel. That's better than no feeling. Go on, feel. I'm glad you're feeling hopeful. I want something from you. I want you to practice feeling frequently, beginning now Great! Will you give any effort to being with people? I will give you that. I don’t feel anything. I'm not afraid. I just don't want to put out the effort. No—1 don't want to be like that. Yes—1 feel resentful toward you. You're right. I feel now. I feel hopeful. O.K. Ask. Right now. I feel silly.

23 The Quaternion Polarities Road Map The Experience First Position Second Position Third Position Fourth Position Fifth Position Paradox Five Stages of Resolution Gestalt Pillow Talk Author: Kenan Doyle Branam Fourth Position: Transcendence "...the sage does not bother with these distinctions but seeks enlightenment from heaven. So he sees "this", but "this" is also "that", and "that" is also "this". "That" has elements of right and wrong, and "this" has elements of right and wrong. Does he still distinguish between "this" and "that", or doesn't he? When there is no more separation between "this" and "that", it is called the still-point of Tao. At the still-point in the center of the circle one can see the infinite in all things." "Chuang Tsu" Translation by Gia-Fu Feng and Jane English

But until you can truly surrender you are not yet a salik, a traveler on the way. A salik is one who has found himself. And when he knows himself he knows the truth, and knows what needs to be done." Hamid in "The last Barrier“ by Reshad Field

28 The Quaternion Polarities Road Map The Experience First Position Second Position Third Position Fourth Position Fifth Position Paradox Five Stages of Resolution Gestalt Pillow Talk Author: Kenan Doyle Branam The Five Stages of Resolving Paradoxical Duality NEITHER HERE NOR THERE DENY Who, me impatient?

29 The Quaternion Polarities Road Map The Experience First Position Second Position Third Position Fourth Position Fifth Position Paradox Five Stages of Resolution Gestalt Pillow Talk Author: Kenan Doyle Branam The Five Stages of Resolving Paradoxical Duality "Having transcended all life, he began to achieve the clear vision of dawn. Having achieved the clear vision of dawn, he began to see the One. Having seen the One, he began to transcend the distinction of past and present, he began to enter the land where there is no life or death, where killing does not take away life and giving birth does not add to it. He would reject nothing, welcomed all things, negated all things, and affirmed all things. This is called tranquillity in struggle, meaning perfection is the result of struggle." - "Chuang Tsu" Translation by Gia-Fu Feng and Jane English
