The basic principle of the Law of Polarity is the realization that everything has an opposite. Well renowned mathematician, Sir Isaac Newton helped define the fundamental laws of science in his studies. He discovered the significance of the law of gravity when he was relaxing under a tree & an apple dropped on his head. Contributing to so many scientific discoveries he concluded in his 3rd law of motion that:
“For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction”
Not just opposite, but equal and opposite. So, if something is REALLY bad, if you look at the opposite side there must be something really good about it. This relates to so many variables that takes place in our lives. Love/hate, light/dark, male/female, grief/joy just to name a few. The north & south poles are great examples of being equal & opposite as one cannot exist without the other. Look back in your own life & remember a time when something terrible happened to you. Perhaps it was a severe sickness, loss of a loved one, divorce, loss of a job, financial hardship or bankruptcy. If you reflect back on the situation you will find it actually turned out to be a phenomenal life’s lesson.
I can clearly remember that happening to me when I was a teenager. A traumatic head on collision landed me in the hospital with serious injuries that kept me in traction, immobile & bedridden for several months. I vividly remember the day when the doctor told my parents & I that my injuries were so severe I would have a difficult time walking. Telling a teenager that felt like the world had come to an end. Crying uncontrollably in hearing the dismal news I thought my life was over. As I was active in sports & loved to dance I realized that I may not be able to experience these activities again.
That particular day was a major crossroad for me as I had to make a choice which direction I would take, either positive towards growth, or be swept up in a negative downward spiral. The support from my family & friends were absolutely amazing. Upon hearing the news my parents calmly thanked the doctor for his advice but adamantly refused to believe his diagnosis. Smiling, they told him he obviously didn’t know me very well and that their daughter would definitely be up walking again, and soon.
What I found important is the fact that had we listened to the doctors advise & resigned to the inevitable my life would look a lot different right now. I made the positive decision that I would begin the grueling process of recuperating even though I knew it would be difficult. Miraculously, by the end of that year I was healed enough to be back on the high school basketball team dribbling down the court, shooting hoops. This is such a great example and good analogy of the Law of Polarity. The restrictions caused by the accident created so much time on my hands I did a lot of soul searching choosing to alter the direction of my life. In retrospect what was perceived to be the worse thing possible that could have happened to me actually became the best, a godsend.
Because of that accident I began to study personal development
Back then educating myself in this topic was unheard of especially with the friends I hung around with. They had no interest in personal growth. Now fast forward several decades later the personal development industry is massive as people’s level of awareness is so much higher & continues to grow.
More importantly, the strength of character that is developed from a challenging situation will carry you forward thru many of life's traumas in the future. Furthermore every 'hit' you take does become easier. Sure there will continue to be challenges when you are faced with hardships but the more you endure the easier it becomes. For anyone that is undergoing a terrible situation in their life understand there is a positive side, an equal and oppositive outcome that you can & will experience.
With that in mind choose to see the event as something you are merely passing thru. It is difficult to believe that there is much hope when you are stuck in the middle of a nightmare but rest assured ‘there is a light at the end of the tunnel” as you hear people say so often. Become an optimist & choose to see the opposite side of the situation. Be determined to move positively forward so you can enjoy the satisfaction of future growth in your life's journey.
