Knowing that things are beyond your control and not stressing or worrying about them can be tough. Right now, many of us are experiencing polarities. At the simplest level, we can look at polarities as being feelings. There are only ever two basic feelings we experience, good or bad. All states of emotion are simply an expression of these two basic feelings. I have spoken of this before, yet in the context of polarities, it brings it home. People are either bobbing along thinking life is grand or filled with doom and gloom. With so much going on around us, and the media access we have to all news (true or false) it can be difficult to disengage. Yet, we need to disengage to a degree to figure out what our stance is and to not be sucked in by all the “media” and opinions of others coming our way. In essence, we need to be disengaged to think for ourselves and figure out what is within our control.
Every day we experience duality in and around ourselves. It is not by chance or accident; it is done by creation. Either we are creating, or someone around us is creating a vortex if you will, that we are being sucked into. As we are all one, there is no separation. There is no hot without cold, no light without dark, no good without bad, and on it goes. When something comes into our awareness, it wants to be known, and it brings to us the manifestation of knowing ourselves deeper. If we look at the polarities being presented, 9 times out of 10, it is not happening to us personally. They are there to bring into our awareness what we believe. That is what is at the heart of polarity. Our truth vs. someone else’s truth. To each individual, one of the polarities is an illusion; the other is fact.
What you perceive as bad, another perceives as good. It is not your job is to point it out. That usually starts an argument that neither side wins. Instead, one can choose to simply examine the polarity being presented and allow your emotions to surface. The emotions will tell you exactly where you stand, your truth in the situation. You don’t need to do anything about it except accept it, own it and continue your path.
During the coming months, you will have many opportunities to realise what is truth to you and what are illusions. Always come home to a place of balance within yourself. What is your truth, question it, is it truth that you own or something that you picked up years ago that does not resonate with you now? How does it make you feel? Are you content with those feelings?
We are being offered a chance to understand ourselves better. During the next while, many will be coming to terms with exactly what their truth is. It might not be pretty, but it is necessary. It is a time of becoming more aware of who you truly are. You can choose to bury your head in the sand, and not take a serious look at the polarities offered you or, and I am strongly suggesting this course of action, use the polarities to step up into your life. Use all that comes about to investigate, discover what makes you tick, and discern what you have control over in your life. Most of all strive to come from a place of joy, compassion and understanding not only with others but with yourself.
Expect things to intensify. Both the light and the dark, for lack of a better way to state it. What you perceive as bad will intensify but also what you perceive as good will intensify. There is always balance during an upheaval to bring about change. All these polarities are bringing about change. Expect your perspective to start shifting. You might start changing how much you hang out with certain people even family members. You might want to stay silent and to yourself. It is important during this time to honour yourself by listening to what your body, mind and spirit want. Stay balanced so that you may anchor the light. That is all. Do everything from a place of love, experience joy in what you do, and you will be balanced.
The time we are living in is indeed spectacular. All of us are on a collective journey as well as a personal one. There are many more harmonies happening than negatives. People are uniting together, realising we are all in this together. We are in a time of history that will be talked about for generations to come, and to think we get to be part of this. I think of all of us as sentinels, standing guard for those that will come after us. We are the catalysts who started this by wanting something better. Remember that, we created the polarities happening now by our desire for something better. Others want something better too, we are all striving for the same thing, just from different perspectives of truth.
As difficult as it may be, know that it is detrimental to your health and wellbeing to worry and stress about that which you have no control over. Instead, focus on what you do have control over, how you participate in the polarities being presented.
