The universe is always in balance at sum zero. If you add one iota of effort to restore balance, the universe will equal your move with an opposite move, checking your positive with a negative, and you think someone did it to you. You blame the universe, missing the truth that you are the universe and the universe is you. You already are in balance. But that doesn’t mean you can fix stuff. That’s the paradox.
If you look at America today there is a war between these two drive towards the ONE. On the Right you have the exclusive force driving for the one pure individual, the One that cannot be divided like the old atom in science. On the Left you have the inclusive force driving to include everything to attain the One whole. Both drives are needed to maintain balance, when one governs without the check of the other, you have a society out of balance, which is our society today. The Right excludes; the Left includes. The Inclusive force if female principle; the excluding force is male principle. That’s why the Right is associated with male and left with female. Our society is struggling to balance these two forces. Our constitution is designed to balance these two forces in conflict so that new Idea can be born that advance the society and keep it in balance with changing times.
These two cosmic forces are always at work in our psyche. Whenever we get in a fix, a dilemma in which can can’t find a resolution, we have gotten there because of our exclusive drive. Our assumptions keep us from looking beyond these invisible wall of our mind. Our logic only works within the boundaries of the known. But when the known encounters the unknown, which is change, our exclusive logic is helpless.
So we relax the effort, accept that we don’t know what to do, but we don’t leave. In that Pause, the inclusive force kicks in and expands to include what we have not been seeing beyond our assumptions. Only the inclusive force can leap beyond the boundaries of our assumptions. Then we get the Eureka! I See it! We then know what to do because we are in a brand new world that has opened beyond our assumptions.
