Just like a battery has two polar opposite terminals, everything in life has its own polar opposite.
If you think about it, there is no dark only an absence of light, there is no sadness, only an absence of happiness. We create our own polar opposites by recognising the lack of something good:
- pain V pleasure
- good V bad
- big V little
- black V white
- love V hate
- yin V yang
Without one of these, the other does not exist, without failure, we would never experience success. Failure and success are the same thing on opposite poles, within one, is the potential for the other.
This is called: The Law of Polarity, in our lives, we experience one aspect of life then it’s opposite. The more we choose to explore one extreme, the further from the centre we move, then we must go the other way to understand it’s opposite. To know white we much know black; to know positive, we must experience negative.
Napoleon Hill, author of the classic Think and Grow Rich, wrote: “Every adversity, every failure and every heartache carry with it the seed of an equivalent or a greater benefit.”
We all have unresolved aspects within us and our aim is to integrate the polarities so that we can live in balance. Mastery of the Law of Polarity requires learning how to maintain balance. Masculine energy is doing, thinking, logical, analytical, physic while the feminine is being, creating, intuitive,meta-physic. Our aim is to balance these internally so that we can listen to our intuition, then act on it.
Our aim is to balance all aspects of our lives, and choosing to change your perception in your resulting attitude you can shift your perception of something from bad to good… from hot to cold… so what are you waiting for? what side of the battery to do you to choose to be on?
