“People were created to be loved, things were created to be used. The reason why the world is in chaos is because things are being loved, and people are being used.” ~Unknown
I came upon this quote today randomly, and with it I find myself in a sphere of polarity. We all should be so aware to recognize this. Polarity is a construct, as two ends of a complete whole; two compliments set apart, but only by the mind. The whole is what is real, the sphere is solid, continuous and stands in completion. The polarity is seen when we break the sphere, fragmenting a singularity for our own simple minds to understand.
One part of the Tao is hard, the other is soft. This is a whole, two complements completing each other. The sphere is the same. Only when viewed completely, both from within and from outside can we see all compliments dancing in unison with the other. These cannot be fragmented. They remain together, as one. This world is full of fragmentation, full of parts, pieces and pieces of parts. We must put our world back together to live in harmony with the whole; the singularity of life.
I meet people often who have little understanding of anything that does not directly affect their own life. They see value in things, and concentrate on how to gain things, and plot to acquire things, and hardly ever do they consider giving things. Value has been misplaced. Polarity has been flipped, and the whole has become a mess of parts. Which part is valuable? Alone, no value exists. This exists only in the whole. The whole is the value.
As we meander about in life, oblivious to what others feel, only focused on the self, and of things to be gained, we miss out on the life given to us. We can all survive without religion, philosophy, material possessions and mirrors. But we cannot live without love, wholeness and compassion for one another.
I personally don’t believe that the world is in chaos.. But I do believe that many people dwell within chaos, and have lost the path to seek order within; losing sight of the whole and concentrating only on the parts. It is now that we must unfocus. Train the eyes to see the beauty of the whole, the parts alone are only fragments of a perfection that all can witness.
Within the sphere of polarity, we also find the perfect sphere; the divine consciousness of life giving breath. We must meet in the spaces between seconds to realize our wholeness; at the place where time is space, and where we are all perfectly embraced.
