When people are at odds, big things cannot be accomplished. Small endeavors have a chance for success. Prolonged opposition makes one wary of even true friends. Such estrangement is caused in part by misunderstanding. If one can recognize opposition as polarity within a whole, then it is easier to see it as simply a difference of approach. If reactivity and defenses can be dropped then tensions can be relieved. If that can be achieved, then it is important to try to leave it behind and return to ordinary conditions.
