People can hold and say contradictory things. But when they build what they mean, those contradictions become visible in an undeniable, thought-provoking way that someone can reflect on long after the building is over. For example, in one workshop we did, a person built contradictory aspects of the self. The aspirational self icluded PEACE, seen in the photo as the blue curved bricks, representing waves. The current self, located on the small wheeled platform, includes PASSION, represented by the orange flame in front of the mini-figure with the sword. The participant connected the current and aspirational selves at those specific points: PASSION and PEACE, fire and water. This person built a paradox (but not an impossibility): How is that going to play out in their life? Only the person who built the fire and water can figure out what it means, but LSP® brought it to their attention.
