A New World of Discovery by Davis Goss
Our life experiences are comprised of a continuity of events and circumstances. These appear to be a random mix that are sometimes joyous, productive and free and at other times they are chaotic, distressful and dominated by all manner of problems.
We live in a world of opposites: up and down, short and tall, success and failure, assets and liabilities, etc., etc. We live in a world of duality where every position is challenged by some implied opposite. Webster defines Aopposites@ as, Aelements that are so far apart and diverse as to be totally irreconcilable@.
By their very nature and definition, opposites cannot mix or commingle. It is our attempts to justify opposites that is root cause of all problems.
Simple logic, then, forces conclusion that if we could somehow prevent this law of opposites from operating in our individual experiences, we could exercise our dominion over those nagging problems that rob us of our natural harmonious life experiences. But how?
Let=s use example of POSITIVE and NEGATIVE. They are representative of opposites. Webster defines Apositive@ as, Asomething that is real@ and Anegative@ as, Athat which is opposite of something@ and is, therefore UN-real. Being opposites they cannot coexist. Either you have one or you have other. But you cannot have both at same time
