Firstly, polarity isn’t ‘bad’ in itself. Source/God projects creation by polarising within itself. It projects consciousness into separate units, be they dimensions, galaxies, planets, human bodies, particles, etc. These interact with each other and the consciousness flows back into its inherent unity in Source. There is a natural creative process of polarisation and integration. We wouldn’t regard the polarity in an electrical battery, the + and -, as bad. The problem arises where the flow back into integrity with Source is blocked for any reason, i.e. where the natural flows are distorted or blocked. It is such distortions that are the problem more than the polarity.
Given that we find ourselves with polarity issues, i.e. separation from ourselves/God and separation from others in terms of conflict, how do we deal with this situation? I very much agree that we must firstly find that place of integrity and unity within ourselves. We must integrate to our Christ & Source consciousness. There is no disagreement here.
What do we do then? Do we detach from the problem, deny its reality, reducing it to the status of an illusion? Or do we engage the problem and try to deal with it? The first option would be great if it worked. But there’s the rub.
Let’s look at this issue in a practical context. I am driving along in my car and I get a puncture. How do I deal with this? I could go into a nice comfortable space where the problem doesn’t exist and try to create the reality of a fixed wheel from there. This isn’t really happening to me, it’s only an illusion. If I think about or bring attention to the punctured wheel it will only create the problem! Or I could simply face the problem, change the wheel and be back motoring within minutes.
The problem with denying the problem is that it also denies the solution. The analogy above is basic but it does serve to illustrate a point. We could pick many other examples. I think most people’s experience of trying to ‘uncreate’ such a problem as illusive would be that the police would have towed the car away or hell itself would have frozen over long before the wheel would have fixed itself. When we face a problem, bring attention to it, we are not creating nor necessarily reinforcing the problem. It’s already there. Constructive engagement is generally an effective strategy in contrast with denial or detachment. Regarding problems as illusions doesn’t necessarily fix them.
We can bring all this into the bigger world scene / conflict drama. There’s part of us that wishes certain things weren’t happening, that would prefer not to know about them, that wants to get away from it all and simply wants to go ‘home’. However, there is a part of Source and a part of us blocked down here. There’s a part of us affected, even trapped, by the drama and we can’t afford to ignore the fact. Knowledge or awareness of itself isn’t separative. We can be fully in our integrity (with Christos / Source) and very much aware of what is going on around us at the same time. In fact, this is a great place to be coming from. Bringing attention to or knowing about it does not necessarily promote separation nor ‘breed polarity’.
Ideally, we focus on issues / problems in the context of solutions. Knowledge / attention needn’t be a cause for fear but rather a powerful motivator and a basis for effective action. In this case knowing is a stepping-stone to resolving the problem back into integrity. Ironically detaching from the problem is more separative or polarising. It separates us from the problem (at the level where it can be solved but not necessarily at the level where it affects us!). It separates the problem from a solution. Ideally, we come into our space of integrity, face issues / problems from there and embrace / draw them into resolution, as effectively as we can.
We all know and respect beautiful people, who are ‘beyond polarity’. Before we can regard ourselves as beyond polarity, we need to address the following question. Can I integrate my body or bodily consciousness fully back to Source right now, in the ‘here and now’? Can I ascend through the dimensional structure of creation, stargates, etc.? If I can’t then I’m not beyond polarity. Until I can do so there is part of me trapped in polarity due to various distortions in the natural processes of creation. I can’t afford to be ignorant of these, not at this time.
It’s not so much our ‘Souls’ or higher parts that we need worry about saving. There are parts of us beyond polarity. But we needn’t worry about these. It’s our lower parts that are caught in the drama and potentially in jeopardy that need our attention. We have projected part of our consciousness into our physical bodies, into every organ, cell and atom. It is this ‘bodily consciousness’ that is most in need of securing. It’s more a case of ‘save our bodies’, i.e. body consciousness, than the more traditional ‘save our souls’! If we detach from the physical realities of our bodies and the drama in which they are enmeshed and seek refuge in the more comfortable spaces of our Soul, we risk losing a valuable part of our identities.
It’s not about right and wrong nor good and bad anymore. It’s about realism and effectiveness. It’s about what works and doesn’t, in terms of bringing as much of ourselves and of other parts of creation that we impact back into integrity with Source as we can. We don’t have centuries to sit around figuring the niceties of things anymore. The need is for enlightened and effective action.
