We live in a
world of contrasts. Big/little, dark/light,
evil/good, etc. The list is
infinite. This is because our 3rd
dimensional reality is created by 4th dimensional energetic
patterns. The 4th dimension
is all about polarities.
seeks balance. Remember that if you “feed”
one end of the polarity, no matter how positive you view that issue, you are
unconsciously giving energy to the opposite end, too, to create that balance. The ultimate goal is to come to the middle
point of each energetic issue or pattern.
You know you are making progress in that regard when the swing between
polarities becomes less and less, and when you are not overly engaged in your chosen
issue. Then, instead of swinging back
and forth on a line, you are able to come to a still center point and expand from
there, thus attaining spherical consciousness. Imagine how wonderful life would
Here in the
American southwest, we have had an extremely snowy winter. The heavy snow pack has been melting, and
there is flooding in many areas. I have
written previously about the amount of snow that fell in the area where I go
snowshoeing east of here in the mountains.
I believe the peak of the snow pack was a bit above 11 feet. Yesterday, out of curiosity, I drove up there
to see how it all looked. All in all, my
elevation change was 3500’, with a temperature difference of 25°
between Cedar City and the Deer Hollow Nordic Ski area. When I got there, the snow was still quite
deep, at about 4’.
Below is a photo taken from the parking lot. You can see that the information kiosk is still at least half covered in snow!

The spotted black area in this photo is a lava flow. The black of the lava has caused the snow to melt faster. You can also see from the clouds that it was raining a bit up there.

any water in it.
As you look at this photo,
both sides of the lake are full, and you can barely see the dam under the water in

Quite a change!

So that got me
thinking about the contrast of the 2 areas which are only about 25 miles apart.
I like to relate my real life events to spiritual
Here we have 2 very
different polarities of weather and terrain.
One is cold, snowy, cloudy, and muddy, and the other is warm, dry, sunny,
The ideal would be a middle point, and would lend itself to a very pleasant day
It would also
be a natural tendency for one to wish they were warmer in the snowy
environment, and cooler in the warmer environment. I always like to say that temperature is just
that, temperature. It has no emotion or
intent, although people like to create a story or drama around the temperature
if it is not to their liking! There is a
big difference between “it’s cold” and “I’m cold”. Try not to own the temperature as your own
personal drama. Your body is capable of adjusting itself to any external temperature.
This also goes for
espousing causes. Be the observer to start
with. Then decide if you want to own
that cause. Turn the finger back towards
yourself and look at what your issue is before jumping in. By healing your personal issue, the cause may
not look as attractive to you, and you will stay out of the polarity of that cause.
I could go on
and on here, but you get the idea. Being
the observer and transcending your own personal polarities is the key to your
