Immeasurable – a poem by Paul Vincent Cannon

“Wholeness is not achieved by cutting off a portion of one’s being, but by the integration of the contraries.” Carl Jung


The curious arises with
an interesting question,
how is healing measured,
this is the narrative
suspended in the moment,
an unbounded possibility,
with time behind us asleep,
and an awakened energy
before us, the search for 
an answer returns in open-
ended imagination beyond
inherited understandings,
stopping briefly in that place
of my gentle acceptance,
through which all things 
made whole are immeasurable.

  2. My dad was very interested in Carl Yung’s notion of integration of contraries. I’ve come to know and accept that my biggest weaknesses are inherent in my biggest strengths.

  3. Curiosity is important to start with. It opens more discovery and doesn’t disappoint when we realize that all things made whole is immeasurable.
