"When people see things as beautiful, ugliness is created.
When people see things as good, evil is created.
Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy complement each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low oppose each other.
Fore and aft follow each other.” Lao Tze. Tao Te Ching Passage 2. (McDonald 28).
The Universe and all life within it cannot exist without polarity for they are complementary forces to each other. The problem comes when we view one side of the polarity as negative but chose only to have the positive. This is not possible for it creates imbalance and the cyclic forces become stagnated thus going against the Universal law of cycles and rhythms. When we realize that even within the ‘negative’ side there is a white dot of window of opportunity or an opportunity of wisdom, then we can harness the wisdom that can come from both sides of the polarity.
One of the ways to use this lesson from polarity is; to just look for a good attribute in every person rather than focus on the obvious darkness they outwardly portray. Lives have been transformed this way and my own life transformation is a testament to this powerful tool.
There are other life changing lessons from understanding the law of polarity but it is not within the scope of this essay to cover them.
