What is it that we like so much about polarity? What is our need to have the either – or in our world? I wonder if it is connected to our need for judgment – or is it the other way around?
I find myself becoming more and more aware of the polarity in the way we talk, talk about things or people. How often do we say this is right – wrong, good – bad, should – should not be? At the same time we talk about unity or oneness. When I inquire about the discrepancy, I often get that this world is a world of polarity.
Now that does not make a lot of sense to me personally. I do not subscribe to things being pre-destined. I believe in choice. I am the one who chooses. So do I choose polarity or unity? What would unity be? For me it means that I am in allowance of everything that is going on around me. There is no resistance to what is. Do I have the courage to truly see what is, in me and in what is going on around? Will I acknowledge it? These 2 questions do not allow a checking out, a pretending everything is fine. It means to be totally present with what is. It does not necessarily require of me to do something, it may, though.
Not going into polarity requires to be a leader in my own life, to choose what I perceive is required, at least for me, in the moment. Making that choice is anything but easy. Recently, I was in such a situation. I knew what was required for me. My body and my being like space. I know that this is not necessarily so for others. What would be the impact of my choice on others? Am I willing to deal with all the judgment that potentially would come as a result? I chose to take care of myself in a quiet way. And, today, I still sit with the question: would doing what I perceived as necessary for me have created more for everybody? The people chose to go into one end of the polarity and I wanted to bring in the other end, with that undoing polarity, going beyond it.
What does polarity mean for you? How do you deal with it? Would you be willing to share your views in the comment section?
