just jumping into the middle of quite the spiritual political discussion, Steve & namaste2All.....

with a question of course, lol !  Cheesy 

is " duality " a favorite word ? seems to come up in many conversations and I am not quite sure I understand the useage / purpose of the word ? could I ask for the condensed version please ? lol !

duality ?  meaning not all as it seems to be ? something looks like something, but in reality - if there is such a thing as reality  - that particular something is really something else ?

Into Blue jumping into the realm of duality with you  Cheesy and dancing with your thoughts !

Duality

It is important for all human beings to learn about duality. In most religious and spiritual scriptures, that are written by holy people for all people to read and learn from, the basic concept of duality appears in some way.

Duality exists only on the physical plane (or material world) that we live in. (See Note 1.) Out of all religions, Taoism emphasizes or stresses duality the most and its Yin Yang symbol clearly depicts duality. Some examples of duality include:

Good & Bad (or Evil)

Light (or White. See note 2.) & Dark (Darkness or Black)

Energy & Matter

Expansion & Contraction

Macrocosm & Microcosm

Centrifugal & Centripetal

Acid & Base

On & Off

Male & Female

Virtue & Sin

Love & Hate

Pleasure & Pain

Peace & War

Life & Death (See note 3.)

Gain & Loss (See note 4.)

Confidence & being uncertain and unsure



NOTES:



1) The physical plane (or material world) that we live in is different from and overlapped by the spiritual plane (or spirit world). The spiritual plane can not be seen using the our physical eyes, but can be seen with our third or fifth eye (related to our pineal and pituitary glands, respectively).

The spiritual and physical planes may be referred to as heaven and hell, respectively. It may be difficult to realize and accept the fact that we are in hell, but it is in hell where we are being tested and/or learn our lessons to be spiritually fit.

Also, while the physical plane consists of one single plane, the spiritual plane is composed of and has been classified in up to 143 sub-planes. These sub-planes include those commonly referred to as the astral, causal and celestial planes.



2) We know from science that white light is composed of all colors. White light can be broken into a rainbow of basic colors using a spectrum glass. Also, these basic colors can be mixed to create an unlimited number of other shades of colors.



3) Life and death are really terms for our transition from the physical plane to the spiritual plane. When the physical layer (one of seven layers) of our body dies on the physical plane, the other layers continue to exist on the spiritual plane.



4) Gain and loss is one of the most complicated or tricky dualities to comprehend or understand. On the physical plane (or material world), a physical loss is often a spiritual gain.

The word "darkness" as used in Genesis 1:2 has a specific significance: it means duality or relativity. Just as the calm sea cannot be ruffled into myriad waves without a storm, so also the sea of the one Spirit could not divide itself into manifold creation without the storm of the law of duality or relativity or darkness. God first created the heavenly electrical, thermal, and electronic forces, and  all material laws and matter in idea only , by the law of relativity of thought. He ruffled up his consciousness, or oneness, into waves--or countless ideas--by means of the storm of duality. This duality is maya, the "measurer,"  which has the magical effect of causing the infinite Formless to appear divided or "measured" into countless varieties of forms.

Attraction/Repulsion  This is 1 of the most interesting expressions of duality.
 People have atraction followed by repulsions towards us. This is not a good
or bad thing but a result of duality we get caught up in. It shows  a rather
inexperienced expression of spirituality because we are still always
looking for a new thrill to satisfy us or we think to ourselves I don't
have to take that.

When someone is affected by us in this we must be aware that spirit
is opening new growing experiemces for us if we are receptive and
do not hold on to  old wore out living conditions. Our guides often
give us more by taking people out of our lives because it opens
us up to the universe and we realize what we have that we have
missed along the way.

interesting post.
it makes me think, if i take time to slow down and really think about it.
universe has provided for me
nourished me, and aided in my experience with it.

i am very curious now, as to the role of the human species and what significance we give to the rest of life here on earth. meaning, for the animals- we're so different from insects and owls and cats and birds and fish and yet something there for us all. . .

I don't know in some ways I am very similar to the ostrich. Sometimes it pays to put
your head in the sand. That way your protected  from these species
called humans when they take you on a spinning wheel.
Besides some people treat animals better than humans.

I understand Steve the most love I have received from a human
was a women who loved me like a horned  toad. But what.... me
complain?

But then why do opposites attract....they are such different polarities. Maybe it's because they can chase each other around in circles and it becomes an endless cycle of run arounds? Never ending life cycles? Undecided Round and round it goes where it stops only God would know?  Huh?  Cool
