To Rise Above Duality


self cenetered centered selfAs human beings who are having a human experience, we are immersed in a world of “duality.”

The Universal Law of Polarity tells us that everything we know here in this world, has an opposite. And so what does that mean? How can I use this Law to improve my self and my life?

Just simply being aware of “duality” really helped me a lot.

The idea that you can’t have one without the other made a lot of sense to me. If there was no such thing as “bad”, then we would have absolutely nothing to gage “good” by. To have one without the other is impossible.

Then the next idea that came to me was when looking back on my life, the “tough” times actually had turned out to have been the best thing that could have happened for me.

There were also lots of times when I got what I wanted, only to find that it really wasn’t all that great. Things usually look much different from the outside looking in.

So could it be that when things appear to be “bad”, they are actually “good”? And vice-versa? Could it be that in my humanness I cannot tell what is “good” and what is “bad?”

Could this be?


What happened with me was that something “bad” would happen, and instead of my typical reaction, I would pause and think a little bit. Sometimes I don’t understand or know what is happening, but I have learned that when people leave, or when a door closes, or when a door won’t open, this is the Universe telling me that someone new is about to appear, another door is about to open, or that I am at the wrong door.

I became a lot more careful when something “good” happened too. No more getting overly excited, because I now knew better.

Am I expecting all these things to make me happy?

Then it really hit home with me that all these things are pretty much, “What I want and what I don’t want.”

They are always somewhere else. There is always something else. When I get caught up in all of that, the one this that is for sure is that I am not present in the NOW.

When I am in my center and grounded, everything just is. Maybe its good or bad or maybe it isn’t. It just is.

I respond to whatever the situation may be, and pass a lot less judgement than in the days of old.

Life is much easier and much more fun this way.
