Duality, Balance, and Flow

Duality is perceived as two opposite ends of a spectrum, whether it be good and evil or anything else which has opposing natures.

Limitation? No. That is simply a mindset or attitude of those who have yet to foster deeper wisdom, to identify value in that which allows the full spectrum of your Source to be expressed in all its diverse beauty and opportunity.

Duality is something which grants you the gift of perspective, from one vantage point or state of consciousness to another. When one teaches you duality is something to be transcended, this suggests someone else is trying to steer your own ship to their own horizon and tell you your own destiny. They may try to teach you that one thing must be forsaken and forced out for the sake and justification of attaining some elevated transcended state of enlightenment. Your spirit is already enlightened, it has always been and never ceases to be so. They may try to teach you that you must steer clear of the dark and embrace only love and light, for unless you do you live in duality. Yet you would not know the value of love and light should the dark not present golden perspective and Self-realization. You cannot find value in the beauty and purpose of a simple candle light without the presence of its opposite. You cannot be fully self-aware if all you are aware of is one end of the spectrum.

Duality is an inherent attribute of physical state. Hot and cold; light and dark; near and far; love and fear, are all aspects of the duality which you are immersed in as a physical being. You are not here in order to conquer it, to wage a war with darkness and fear, for these things are your greatest teachers. You are here to sample the state of it that you may see your Self from a different vantage point; that you may sample another flavour of the source that is yours to create with as you choose.

Duality does not create imbalance within you; your attitude towards and relationship with duality is what creates imbalance. Yin and yang – the marriage of energies which dance together to form the structures of life you observe in physical state. Duality is primarily of the mind, for your thoughts seek to wrap experiences into boxes to accommodate a convenient relationship with them. They will be thought of as either ‘good’ or ‘bad’. Consequently an abundance of ‘bad’ experiences then creates imbalance within you. So what you will want to do, is not seek to ascended beyond duality, but change your thoughts about it. Instead of your experience being good or bad, let it simply be an experience. Instead of an individual being good or evil, recognise their capacity for both and relinquish the labels of either.

The thing about balance is that it is not expressed in a straight line, it is much like a wave form or a dance of two energies. In the same way as I have described earlier, you will witness a lion kill a deer for food, yet immediately after you may witness it nurture its orphaned offspring. This is because the lion intuitively understands harmony and love, yet it also understands it needs food to survive.

With this said, do not bruise your confidence or sense of self-worth if you appear to contradict your highest expectations of balance. Understand you exist in a physical duality of opposing energies and so you are always going to be receptive to external energy influence. It is how you receive and respond to such energy which is important, for do not presume to think you can avoid negativity forever.

I hold balance due to pervasively strong roots to specific values which govern my consciousness. These values radiate their own consciousness and energy field within me which create a state of contentment, wellbeing and deep-seated self-value. My emotional and heart wisdom is such that I perceive understanding of events as they occur. This means, by the time the event being observed is being processed by my awareness, the wisdom to understand what is happening and why it is happening is already taking place. The energy and value of compassion and empathy within me causes intuitive awareness over circumstances which occur around me.

Because I do not hold onto negative judgement I am able to process information in such a way as it is understood on multiple levels, within multiple dimensions, and filters through my heart before it influences my mind. Because my mind is conditioned to be void of thought until I choose thought to be there, the fluidity of my heart energy always governs and maintains balance within me. It is often when people filter information or events through mind before heart that they become imbalanced. This is because the memories within mind assign judgments, fears and beliefs to that information, which changes the structure of value that information forms within your consciousness and energy field. The heart actually ‘feels’ for the truth contained in information before your mind can apply its own opinionated truth.

The discomfort caused by planetary energy changes and interactions with certain people arise because of energy residues you are holding onto. This energy is usually contained within your memory, either cellular or consciousness memory. As outside pressures from another’s energy or that of planetary gravitational fields impact those memories, those energy residues or frequencies, they cause an equal opposing pressure of resistance. This causes such symptoms as headaches, nausea, pain, emotional distress, anxiety, imbalanced immune system and chemical instability. Each memory you have and retain contains its own vibration. It is stored in your consciousness and energy aura as a vibration, for all memory is contained within vibration. This is why you can only access certain memories of your spirit nature as you develop spiritually. It is also why you cannot remember things when you are angry or depressed.

Know then that creating balance with your external environment demands you to attain balance with your internal environment. This means you must seek balance with your own energy, your own memory of your life journey and the consciousness you already carry throughout your daily life. Find balance and harmony with your memories that they may be healed and resonate to a nurturing vibration within your hearts wisdom. Forgive those who you need to forgive, especially if it is yourself you need to forgive. Only by accepting your past within the vibration of love can you expect a balanced future.

“Going with the flow” often translates to going with the flow of someone else’s energy creation. You must remember, this is not the spirit world, you share your energy space with millions of other beings who are intricately weaving their energy influences in and out of the landscape that is your life story. This means, if you are content to just ‘go with the flow’, what you will find is that the flow you are following is dictated to you by all the other people around you who are steering your life in a way which benefits them and exploits you. You become a leaf in a fierce river, taken for a roller coaster ride upon the current of energy others draw you into. The law of attraction is upon you, you are going to be attracted to the rippling effects of others actions unless you can create your own energy momentum to captain your own ship and steer your life towards a horizon of your own choosing.

There are some in the new age mentality that will state assuredly that you have nothing to fear, that you should accept everything as it comes to you for it is for your own good, and if you resist it, you are fighting against the divine force of the universe. Yet try to tell this so-called wisdom to those who are molested, those who are tortured and those who are murdered by the wills of others. There is no wisdom in accepting the fate others dictate for you, there lies only ignorance of your own responsibility as a creator being to have your own voice, your own purpose and your own destiny.

There is a time and place when one should go with the flow, and that is when your internal and external world are in balance and equilibrium, within a natural flow of harmony. If your internal and external environment is not in harmony, then you would be naive to submit to such flow, for that flow is very clearly a journey of disharmony and suffering.

    I have just discovered this blog and am digging in…
    What does his reference to “heart wisdom” mean to you as he uses it here? Many reference the heart and use it in many ways… Just wondering how you would describe it.
    Thanks for all your wonderful sharings!

      Hi Cindy!

      Glad to hear you are finding the materials of interest. Sparrow places great emphasis on trusting and experiencing the feeling capacity, which is typically buried under a lot of conceptual baggage. In that sense, heart wisdom would derive from a full availability to one’s emotional intuition, so to speak, which is closer to the truth of Self than mere intellectual knowledge.
      In any case, further review of the material will clarify the matter for you, I am sure!

      Best wishes!

    Hi Bob, Thanks for your effort!
    Duality and it’s effects have been a puzzle to me for a long while but recently It came to me that
    negativity equates to the concept and feeling of individuality and thus the need for competition for survival and all that results from that while the positive is the concept and feeling of oneness with all that is and the peace, acceptance (especially of self) and happiness that follow that realization.

    Perhaps a major reason for our physical experience is that God or Tao may develop that perspective of separation in order to view himself in a different way just as we must learn to experience our own existence from both perspectives.
