Mystics have said that The Universe is One Energy, One Consciousness, Aware of Itself and blissfully happy in The Knowing of its completeness and sufficiency.
At the beginning of existence, this One Energy split itself into a seeming Polarity, and it is the tension between these opposite Poles that causes The Universe as we know it to continually manifest.
Good and bad, black and white, right and wrong, up and down, presence and absence, abundance and scarcity, here and there, hot and cold, off and on,…
All of these seemingly opposed Dualities are actually different sides of the same coin, opposite ends of a single spectrum, and different aspects of the Same, One, Unified Thing.
In order for Everything to experience itself as Anything, though, it is necessary or there to be at least a seeming Duality to existence because it is only by virtue of the Contrast of an apparent opposite that any one thing can be understood or experienced.
When “here” is everywhere, “here” has no meaning.
In order to make sense of “here”, there has to be a “not here” called “there” with which to Contrast it.
This is a Universe of Energy.
Energy is Vibration.
Vibration is Wave.
Every Wave is composed of both a Crest and a Trough, an On and an Off, an Up and a Down.
Understanding this Universal Principle and developing an Awareness of it in your everyday life is the key to both Mastering the World of the Mind and Transcending it.
It is The Secret to enjoying your Life Experience as a physically focused being while also realizing the intimate connection to your Full Self, the whole Whole of Who You Are.
Because the Tension of Duality is what causes your experience of The Universe to manifest, learning to leverage this Tension, to embrace it, to harness it, and to Consciously Channel it will allow you, from your unique perspective as a physically focused being, to manifest an experience of living that is maximally enriching to you.
In so doing, you will evolve and expand in your ability to offer benefit of immeasurable value to All That Is.
For every Wanted there is an Unwanted.
For every Desired, there is an Undesired.
For every possible fulfillment, there is a possibility of lack.
Every Desire that you have was born of some Contrasting experience.
This Contrasting experience involved some combination of a lack of that Desire or the presence of its opposite.
The Contrasting experience of loneliness inspires a Desire for companionship.
The Contrast of scarcity inspires a Desire for abundance.
The Contrast of a Lack of What You Want inspires within you a clear and powerful Desire for What You Do.
Every preference that you have as a Conscious Creator is an essential aspect of the Expansion All That Is, and each one of these preferences is created and clarified by your experiences with Contrast.
For many people, experiencing Contrast is strongly associated with Suffering, but suffering is never caused by the Contrast itself, but by Emotional Reaction to coming into contact with it.
When we are unconsciously absorbed in the world of the mind, we sometimes forget that this is a Universe of Energetic Vibration.
We forget that every “on” has an “off”, that every “up” has a “down”, and we forget that these seeming Dualities are actually co-dependent upon each other and that they are really simply two sides of the experiential coin.
We begin to play what is known as “The Game of Black and White” and we conclude that “White Must Win.”
Not realizing that the entire Universe and our experience of it is being manifested by the tension existing between Polar Opposites, we convince ourselves that we want one of the poles to win out over the other.
We forget that the experiences that we most enjoy are totally dependent upon the experiences that we do not.
We become so infatuated with the foreground that is our Desires and their satisfaction that we forget about, neglect, and sometimes even fear the background of Contrast that makes our Desires possible.
When we are unconscious of the creative aspects of Contrast, we begin to Emotionally Resist it, and it is this Resistance of ours, not the Contrast we are Resisting, that introduces experiences of Suffering into our lives.
It is as if we want a coin that only has a single “heads” side.
But what happens when you take a coin and try to cut off the “tails” side?
Do you not simply create another tails side on a slightly thinner coin?
The only way to totally get rid of tails is to get rid of heads, too: to totally destroy the coin and remove it from existence.
Such is the nature of The Universe and everything that occurs within it.
One of the most important and powerful skills that a Conscious Creator can learn is to revere, to embrace, to love the Contrast as much as she loves the delicious Desires which that Contrast gives rise to.
As you come to realize the extent of your identity as a Conscious Creator, your Sense of Self begins to expand.
You begin to see that the whole Whole of Who You Are is far, far broader and far, far deeper than the beautiful (albeit limited) perspective made possible by your narrow point of consciousness as a physically focused being.
You begin to experience Your Self as beyond that which you have considered or felt before, and as your Sense of Self expands so too does your ability to see that All That Is, Contrast included, is serving you in the continued expansion and clarification of your Desires.
You feel that everything that happens to you is to your greater benefit.
You realize that the obstacle is the way.
The more you appreciate contrast, the more you revere it, the more you embrace it, the more skilled you become at using it for its intended purpose: to clarify and amplify your Desires and to catalyze quantum expansion of What It’s Like To Be You.
Contrast is the fuel that keeps the Leading Edge of Thought leading the edge of thought.
It provides the background for your glorious foreground.
It is the page upon which the magnificent odyssey of the Conscious Creation of your Desires is written.
As you realize that Contrast is just on the opposite side of the coin as Desire, it becomes easier and easier to flip the coin over and Allow anything and everything you Desire to come into your life.
