We often hear that “opposites attract.” Fact is, opposites are what hold the physical dimension together. The earth is positioned on a polar axis, planets are kept in place by forces of gravity and motion, the solar system doesn’t collapse on itself because of polarity, and people are attracted to one another or repelled (in part) as a result of polarity and opposites.
*
Polarity is essentially the glue in the bio-mechanics of physical matter.
*
The universe has been expanding since the big bang. This expansion is taking place at just the right speed to prevent gravity from pulling all the planets back to a single point and collapsing the universe. If there was no gravity, all the planets would then expand so quickly away from each other that the sun would shoot off into space and earth would freeze. Without the force of expansion of the planets, gravity would pull all the planets back together and the universe would collapse in on itself and create yet another Big Bang (there have been so many I lost count). The counter force between celestial expansion and the force of gravity is what creates balance in the universes.
*
From macroscopic cosmos to the microcosm of the quantum universe, each molecule in our body exhibits the same polar forces holding them together as is present in the interstellar reaches of outer space. Each physical atom not only in the human body but of all physical matter contains positive and negative charged elements. Positrons, electrons and neutrons create the balance that holds a single atomic molecule together.
*
There can never be only one force in nature. With only positive or only negative ions in the atom, there would be no molecule. It would lack stability and just vanish. No matter how thin a magnet is sliced, it will always display two forces, one positive and one negative. The universe depends on the duality of polarity.
*
Opposing forces exist in every physical event. These forces of opposite have been described and defined as physical laws by scientist, philosopher and physicists for ages. In Newton’s Third Law of Motion he states “To every action there is always an equal and opposite reaction: or the forces of two bodies on each other are always equal and are directed in opposite directions.”
*
Positive and negative, yin and yang, ebb and flow of the ocean tides, light and dark, sun and clouds, sadness and joy, easy and hard, nice and angry, without one, there wouldn’t be the other.
*
You can feel polarity in relation to people you meet. There are times when standing near another human being, you feel an attraction or pull towards them, a positive energy, while standing near others there is a sense of negativity and feel repulsion. Each of us has an electromagnetic field radiating from us in all directions, effecting everyone and everything we encounter. Notice the positive or negative polarity you project out to others and how you feel the reverberation of someone else’s energy. Embrace that knowledge as it relates to all positive or negative events in your life. What type of electromagnetic energy are you emitting?
*
Embrace the polarity of life. Know that each component is necessary for any life experience. Learn from events that appear inharmonious, love the life events that bring joy, embrace the opportunity in every event, every life change, ride the wave of mother nature in her polar vibration, in her wave of opposites.
*
Some religious texts have proposed the concept that negative life events, pain, displeasure and challenges of all sorts being simply a reminder of our human-ness, and that in our true nature as spiritual beings no polarity, pain or discord exists. Polarity is a reminder of sorts that being connected to spirit is the most important and most natural place for us to reside. That each physical incarnation is temporary while “who we are” is eternal and free of polarity. The human experience is one of spontaneous, expansive growth, learning, and creativity. It is a choice for another adventure in individual growth of the unique spiritual extension of and from Divine Source that we are.
*
Differences between people, disagreements, challenges in relationships, life challenges, heartache and life discord are all part of the polar balance in nature, and in life as we understand.
*
Which is the chicken, which is the egg? What came first, action or reaction, positive or negative? It doesn’t matter, they are both the same. They are both necessary, they are both part of the fabric of continuity within the physical universe.
*
As Ram Dass said at a retreat last year on Maui, “…without Judas, there would be no story.” Polarity is what is necessary to have a story, a life journey and adventure. Otherwise we may as well skip the adventure, no more incarnations and stay in spirit solely or in some plane of reality that is monotonously uniform. That is okay too, but we choose Life! Let us live to our fullest even through all the polarity that comes our way.
*
No matter what you are experiencing, there will always be an opposite. That is the make up of nature. If you have experienced extreme pleasure, then you have most probably experienced extreme pain. With an experience of only mild challenge or mild pain, your ability to experience more than mild pleasure or success will be limited. Ultimately, they are both the same. Joy and sadness, pain and pleasure, life and death, positive and negative. All have to be present, all ultimately live in balance and harmony.
*
Let it be okay that you don’t always agree with someone. It is okay that there are differences in relationships, that two people don’t always like all the same things. There will be varying degrees of challenges in life and relationships. Some people like minimal change, small challenges and successes in the polarity of life, while others enjoy huge swings in the currents of life. That’s what makes life so interesting.
*
Polarity is a necessary component for life.
*
Whenever you are experiencing pain, upset, chaos, discord, anguish, sadness, know that it always means joy, love pleasure, life, peace and harmony are just around the corner. Mother Nature will always return everything to harmonium.
*
And more good news:
*
Who “We Are” is not dependent on properties of physical laws. Physical laws only apply to physical matter. Science has no understanding nor tools that can formulate laws that are outside the physical realm. Who “We Are” as eternal spiritual being of energy, as unique extensions from within Divine Source (god as you know him) do not follow the principles and laws of physical matter. Physical laws apply to our physical incarnation and experience on this planet and in this universe only. There are realms of existence that are so indescribable in terms of human understanding and communication. Physical laws are highly limited in what they can describe.
*
Further, we have the ability to transcend the laws of matter and physics in meditation, prayer, dreams, and by simply staying connected within and functioning from the Energy that is Everything, our Divine origin. Living from the truth of who we are within Divine Source and as a unique extension from Source, we can rise above any upset of our physical experience.
*
And, just because there are equal and opposite amounts of polarity in the universe, it doesn’t mean that we all experience an equal amount of polarity. Some people choose to live life with greater amounts of negativity, challenge and chaos, while others choose to live in greater volumes of the positive, in love, peace, harmony and joy! That is part of natures balance.
*
We can choose the weighted side of polarity we wish to live in.
*
Embrace the positive side of polarity. Manifest your Dreams,
*
Choose to Live Life’s Joy!
