The Principle of Polarity
The principle of polarity embodies the truth that all manifested things have two sides, two aspects, or two poles.
The principle dictates that all things happen opposite and in fact, a pair of opposites are the same, only differing by a single degree.
Love is a positive view point. Like the uncoditional love from a mother for her child. 100% positive on the scale of polarity where the mother can see no negatives.
Hate is the complete opposite or polar opposite of love where one can see no positives.
There are degrees of love and hate, and there is a middle point where we tend to use the terms Like or Dislike which shade into each other so gradually that sometimes we are at a loss to know whether we “like” or “dislike” something or someone.
To develop an open mind, it is essential to take an honest look at who you truly are. In 1955, Joseph Luft and Harry Ingham developed the Johari Window. The Johari Window helps you to better understand your personality. The Window is made up of four panes, representing the four areas of personality.
1. Only you know. This is the area of yourself that you do not wish to disclose to anyone else. It’s very private and vulnerable part of your personality that holds your fears and doubts. It holds any embarrassing or hurtful event that you did or has happened to you. You choose very carefully whom you allow to know this part of you. If anyone at all.
2. You Show to Others. This is the area of your personality that you share with others in varying degrees, depending upon your trust level with each individual. You feel safe and confident with this part of your personality and people are welcome here.
3. Only Others Know. Though you may not be aware, there is a part of your personality, information about you, which others know, but you do not. Such knowledge may be bad habits you do without knowing. Knowledge in this may also be your potential. Sometimes, others see in us, what we don’t see in ourselves.
4. No One Knows. This area holds any knowledge and potential that you or anyone else has to discover. Science has proven that we use only a small portion of our brain’s capacity. Some things you will discover between now and then when you leave this world. The majority of it, you will never know. This is also the area where dreams are made real, where new theories are born, where new science is first thought and then discovered, and where creativity is given birth. New thought develop here. New ideas that change the world develop here. It’s the unknow part of you…the creative part of you.
How does this apply to us? It is important to know who we are. We need to know as much about our true self. Who we are…to be truly open and take full responsibility of who we are and where we are on our path of life.
