There is little difference in people, but that little difference makes a big difference. The little difference is attitude. The big difference is whether it is positive or negative.
~ W. Clement Stone
We’ve heard the words positive and negative, in which we have given attributes. Most of us tend to understand positive as being good, while negative is viewed at as being bad. The way we have looked at these words and their energy has been before our time, but something has gotta give–we starve for more understanding.
We notice in nature that everything comes in two’s, and it takes two to create our bodies. How about if we looked at our parents as being positive and negative, but not in the traditional way. Our mother would be positive (just saying), while our father negative. Again, it took both of them to create this body I reside in and both of them reside in me. We could also say that my mother is the right side of my brain, while my father the left. My father controls the right side of my body, while my mother the left. See! Even both of them reside in one another; thus, creation.
Who is this me? The me is commonly referred to as ego, but Isn’t the ego something bad or negative per-say? I would not call it bad, but I would say the negative part of ourselves. The ego like’s to move around continuously and by doing so, silencing or controlling our mind becomes virtually impossible.
The word negate is a verb that is always in action doing different things; thus, our term negative. The word pose and it’s meaning is to stand still; thus, our word positive. The very act of walking can be looked at as negative because we are moving, and the very act of stopping at a light can be looked at as positive, because we are standing still. However, just because we are walking does not mean we have to think; we can be still, or posing in our thoughts. Just because I am standing still does not mean I have to stand still in my thoughts. I’m sure you get the idea.
My soul is beyond this physical world, and we could say that it’s the Real Me, and my physical body is a direct imitation of it. We’ve become so attached to this physical world that we tend to think that we are this physical body. We have spoken of positive and negative but what about neutral? Neutral can be seen as non-attachment, middle path, or new trail.
Have a look at these cathedrals below, and keep in mind three:
There are many more monuments, cathedrals, buildings out there with more emphasis placed on the middle path. We mentioned before that the middle path can be seen as the neutral path, or the new trail. Ancient text’s and mystics have spoken of this new trail leading us to resurrection (salvation) through balance of our right and left pillars. The Sol (Sun) of God (Source) is our very own soul’s, and God is already who you really are, because this physical is a dream or an illusion and only God exists.
Thus our task here may be to resurrect or create the Sun within through work and effort.
No man, when he hath lighted a candle, putteth it in a secret place, neither under a bushel, but on a candlestick, that they which come in may see the light. The light of the body is the eye: therefore when thine eye is single, thy whole body also is full of light…
