*Yin-Yang Humanity

It is the nature of our world to experience the manifestations of duality, not just in the physical world around us as opposites, but in the ever-changing colours and shades of the birth-life-growth-decay and death cycle of life. And not least in the psychology of the human with what we call positive and negative traits, thoughts, emotions and actions – represented by the four elements – and the extremes of unconditional love and murderous hatred. But the Yin-Yang symbol shows that it is not an absolute division of one thing from another, for the small dots in each half show that nothing is absolute.

US and THEM
I see with horror how the world has divided itself into blacks and whites and yet I know there must be some purpose in this, as the yin-yang duality describes. I am horrified that it has caused hatred and apartheid, oppression of one people by another, and in some cases annihilation. It has always bothered me that the dark-eyed ‘black’ people have been treated so badly and have wondered why the blue-eyed ‘white’ race think of themselves as superior. Perhaps Hitler came to show us the ultimate expression of this, to stop us in our tracks.
I want to make a difference, to expose this stupid discrimination, and do small things which may add up to something grand to bring a loving peace between people. I read, think, study, wonder, try to understand the Higher purpose of this and what we are supposed to do with it. Could the distinct and separate races meld in the ‘melting pot’ of cross-cultural mating to form a new race of undetermined colour – to form a beautiful brown Earth people with multi-shades of eyes and hair, and a range of features, characteristics and abilities that cannot be segregated into well-defined ‘races’? Perhaps we are already becoming this!

To perceive life as a bird from above one could look down and see patterns – patterns of behaviour, patterns of movement around the planet, patterns of social structure, patterns in the rise and fall of nations, the emergence and disappearance of civilisations – and compare human expression with the natural world it finds itself in. In it, somewhere, there is a clue which will explain why we have divided ourselves, the one half trying to eliminate the other, while as individuals we constantly yearn for our ‘other half’ with whom we can exchange unfettered love and unite as one.

If we can discover the origins of the White Race, the Aryans (if they are one and the same), I feel we may find an answer. If some of us did indeed come from another place in the cosmos, or time-space dimension, and started out with knowledge that was kept from others, it could answer the unconsciously-held presumption that they are different, more advanced, superior, or more privileged than the race that did not originate from that place. But this presumption strikes against my understanding that the Universal Architect created all… and Father Spirit, finding Mother Spirit here on Earth, co-created their children and all are bequeathed the right to be free, to procreate, and to love and be loved in peaceful harmony together… aren’t they?

How did duality start – from a fissure in the wholeness of creation? In the simple concept of beauty, there has to be a standard of beauty, and all things outside that standard, fail in beauty. Where there is light, a shadow must be cast. To evolve, progress, grow, improve, excel, we leave behind a self which does not.

Human biology tells us that all babes are conceived as one gender – a non-male, or feminine androgen, with a potential to specialise its genes into one or the other – a boy or a girl – while keeping secretly within, it’s ‘other’. The separation seems to serve only one purpose – to be able to unite again in sexual union to re-create itself. The bio-psychology of each gender best serves its role – to dispassionately leave the nest to hunt and roam, as man (once the seed is sown); or remain around the hearth to nourish, grow and teach the child to maturity, as woman. And yet both genders have so much more – both can think, create artistically, work, explore, learn, hone their manual skills or philosophies, study the sciences, entertain, or trade – and these are not exclusve to one gender or the other.

To turn around the human destruction of humans, we have to understand how it started. How was Man set against Man? There is a story about how one action changed things – how one man, back along, decided to trick his community into thinking they were going to be attacked and therefore needed to defend themselves. The opportunist volunteered to gather a small army and lead it, for a small reward and free quarters within the city. He was a man who had no land of his own and therefore had to create a job for himself – as a self-appointed fighter of the ‘enemy’, a protector of the citizens – but who was this imagined ‘enemy’? We have a saying: ‘An Englishman’s home is his castle’; so is it only when we enclose ourselves in a space that we (think we) own, that we find we have to defend it, making all outsiders potential attackers? Is it just about the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’? Or are there really outsiders, enemies, bent on sucking the planet dry with no regard for life, individual or collective. Is the force we name evil lost of its balancing other half? Has it become devoid of harmony and cannot procreate, and so must take from others who can?
I have read history of the ‘Dark Ages’, of battles and slaughter of huge numbers of people; of empire-builders, great wealth and great loss; of lands won and then lost again in the bid to be the strongest, most powerful and most wealthy.
It goes against a simple principle – that we have everything that we need without taking anything from another. If we should have a surplus, we can trade it with someone for something we need. It’s so easy.

Is this dense, material plane to teach us this simple principle? To see another not for his differences but for our shared gifts? That in seeking and finding love through a soul-mate, even the alter-soul within, we can feel complete? By seeing a blend of genders not as abnormal but evolution? By seeing both sides of difference not as opposites, oppositions, opposing forces, but as uniting, encompassing, harmonising forces.

Is it possible in this Earthy realm?

*Law of Attraction Part 2


PART 2

“Human beings, who are almost unique in having the ability to learn from the experience of others, are also remarkable for their apparent disinclination to do so.”

<Douglas Adams>

The Law of Attraction does two things. The first is that it will attract opposites, to make a perfect whole. Like yin and yang. The second is that like will attract like. This likeness will attract, as a reflection in the mirror, but will then repel as there is no balance.

Supposing, just supposing, the person you are in a relationship with right now is not who you think they are.

You may feel that you have just found the one person in the world who makes you feel special, who attracts you with the most amazing chemistry, or magnetism and that you have ‘fallen in love’.

If you are ‘opposites’, in every sense of the word, you may set up a home and procreate, which is natural, but that’s not what is being discussed here.

If you are mirroring each other, in any way at all, you will eventually repel each other. It seems that the purpose of attraction is to reflect what you are and what you aint. And if you meet someone mirroring something negative, they have arrived for a purpose.

It may be that this person is outside your marriage, or relationship. They may have suddenly appeared from no-where, unexpectedly, and thrown you into a flat spin.

You may be so distracted by this person that you are demonstrating some unusual behaviour. You may be having wild dreams, possibly erotic. You may find that you want to talk to them constantly, day and night, be with them all the time. You may feel that this attraction is out of your control.

Further down the line, you may find yourself acting out of character, doing things you wouldn’t normally do. You may find that this person has got under your skin and now you are having anxious thoughts about where it is going. The happy ending is not in sight. It’s going a bit wrong.

Eventually you may find that you want to shake yourself awake, get out of the relationship and you can’t. You may have realised by now that things aren’t what you expected, it has got complicated, surreal, and you want out. You think that you have made a big mistake and you are seriously worried.

Now, ask yourself these questions.

“What have I learned about myself during this strange time? What have I done, or what has been done to me that doesn’t feel right? What is making me feel angry, hurt or afraid and what am I blaming this other person for?

Right! Got it? Now apply all your answers to yourself. Own every aspect of this experience as a lesson to correct some aspect that is in yourself, that is out of balance and needs to evolve.

This reflection of you has come into your life just for YOU, to bring some experience to the front of your attention so that you can learn and grow.

A Soul Mate is a person whose spirit is akin to yours. They step into a role, or arrive with certain qualities, just to reflect back to you what is in you and some of it may not be nice.

Look in the mirror. See yourself in the other person. It may be hard to see if it is some quality you don’t like in yourself, something you are denying or pretending is not there, or even something you had no idea was there.

The hardest aspect of this process is that the imbalance may be so deeply hidden, created so far back, even before this life-time, that you may have trouble identifying it.

Look in the mirror that IS the other person, the reflection of yourself.

Why fall in love? Because that is the only way we can be pursuaded to deal with this, lured, if you like, into having an opportunity to address this issue. The mechanics of the magnetism, the attraction, what feels like love, is so complex it really doesn’t matter if you don’t know how it works. What does matter is that you love YOURSELF enough to own it, understand it and let it transform you.

And that you LOVE the other person, who now appears to be the enemy, a rogue, a deceiver, a temptress or seducer, a liar or a thief, or whatever. The other person can now go on their way, when you understand. Thank them and let them go. Job done.

This is not punishment, judgment or something that’s gone wrong. It is the part of you that is working for you, to find balance. In a strange way, the person who has found balance doesn’t need to fall in love. The perfect relationship with another is one where both partners mirror all the good aspects in themselves, as opposites. You think that’s possible? The next stage is no relationship, apart from with yourself, as both yin and yang in one Self.

Next time, in Part 3, we will look at the Law of Attraction that brings good luck, windfalls, success, Angels and Divine intervention and miracles.
