LIVE ARTS FOR THE EVERYDAY – APPLICABLE THOUGHT #51 – Climax

What defines a climax can be drama, difficulty, volume, pitch, a sudden release of energy… whichever the case, a climax is a highest point of intensity. After reaching a peak, things by nature come down and there is a resolution. This return to a neutral state is what allows for something new to emerge. Intensity makes us feel alive, and it can become an addiction. Are we allowing ourselves to come down when an experience is over? Or are we trying to keep the intensity going by not letting go or by springing on to the next thing to avoid ever coming down?
