Polarity is the fourth of only seven Hermetic Principles, which are the foundational laws of nature. “Everything is dual; everything has poles; everything has its pair of opposites.” ~The Kybalion, Polarity: The Fourth Hermetic Principle We make the distinction that duality and polarity are not the same thing. While polarities may be dual in nature, they’re not a duality. Duality is when things are wanted/unwanted (good/bad), but if you look […] Read more »
How to Discern if a Spiritual Teacher and/or Path is Worth Your Consideration
In a world filled with teachers, paths, and methodologies, it is important to learn how to filter out the wheat from the dross, as a means of maximizing the potential acolyte’s own evolution and self-development with the least amount of dead ends, drama, and false starts. As a result of our own experiences within the mystical arts, we have designed a checklist of questions meant to assist those acolytes aligned with […] Read more »
Michael Tsarion: Duality or Wholeness?
Michael Tsarion goes into our original fragmentation, and how fragmentation is used against us, and why it is so important to reclaim our many disparate fragments, and put them back together again. Recorded on Open Your Mind Radio with Alan & Steve. Recorded on March 20th, 2011. Read more »
Duality, Polarity, and the False Dilemma Fallacy
“A false dilemma (also called false dichotomy, false binary, black-and-white thinking, bifurcation, denying a conjunct, the either–or fallacy, fallacy of exhaustive hypotheses, fallacy of the excluded middle, the fallacy of false choice, or the fallacy of the false alternative) is a type of informal fallacy that involves a situation in which only limited alternatives are considered, when in fact there is at least one additional option. The opposite of this […] Read more »
Are You Powerful, or Are You Empowered?
Many spiritual circles use the terminology Service to Self (STS) and Service to Others (STO) to describe the alignment of the various beings in our Universe, where STS is selfish, manipulative, fragmented, and externalized, and STO is integrated, whole, and creative. We feel that the Service to Others moniker can be a bit confusing, since “service to others” has come to be associated with “sacrificing for for the greater good”, which is […] Read more »
Sex, Money, & the Mystic’s Orientation
Light and Dark are both an unnatural duality, where the Light is considered good and the Dark is considered bad, but they are also a metaphor for that which we consciously embrace (Light) and that which we unconsciously shun (Dark) within ourselves. In our current reality, based on the collective perception of life that we have been raised within, sex and money are two focal points that have been conditioned […] Read more »
3D visualization of The Double Torus energy interaction, between male and female energy bodies
Most polarity spectra have an active and passive side, such as the active student polarity (–) and the passive teacher polarity (+), the active worth polarity (–) and the passive value polarity (+), or the active question polarity (–) and the passive answer polarity (+). Contrary to our current cultural conditioning, our answers are meant to be passive, and it is our questions that are intended to be active in our life; […] Read more »
Light, Dark, Gray, & Hermetic Magic
Star Wars has been a clear metaphor for the tension and battle between the forces of light and those of darkness, where they are the modern fictional versions of the light magicians and the dark sorcerers who both yield the creative forces of nature. Hidden in the battle between the light and dark sides of this perpetual struggle, has been a small but powerful group of gray/neutral magicians who consciously hold both the light […] Read more »
The War Against Individuality
There is a war against Individuality, and two of its main fronts are within the media and popular spiritual beliefs. They consistently put out (social engineering) the subtle lie that individuality is egocentric and selfish, but all they’ve done is hijacked the word individuality and re-branded it as egocentric and selfish; it’s a public relations stunt to make people believe that individuality is against love and unity. It’s more of […] Read more »
The Sex vs. Money Duality
Sex and money are an unnatural polarity, also known as a duality, and if a person polarizes into one side to find their value, the other side will automatically attract to it. Money value attracts sexual value, and sexual value attracts money value, it is how the Hermetic Principle of Polarity works. Prostitution is the most honest metaphor for being polarized with sexual value, as it attracts those with money […] Read more »
What Does Balance and Neutrality Really Mean?
It is time that we find our neutrality and balance through mastering our chosen polarity and/or gender, which results in Divine Union of our dual nature, rather than resisting the rhythm of the swings of the pendulum in an attempt to equalize our polarities and/or gender. The first is the organic and natural flow of the Divine passing down through us, while the latter is synthetic, controlled, and unnatural. True balance […] Read more »
What Does it Mean to Be Balanced?
The Unity Process uses Jungian shadow work to balance the Hermetic Principles of gender, correspondence, polarity, and rhythm within our Selves, which results in having that balance reflected back to us by our external (macro) world. Many of the students of the hermetic principles, including what I can tell from Elite interpretations that I have read, attempt to find balance through an external means, outside-in, rather than through an internal means from the inside-out. We […] Read more »
Escape from Victim, Villain, Savior, and the Duality Drama
We have the survival mechanism of “fight, flight, freeze, and tend & befriend”, because we’ve been conditioned to ask a very narrow set of questions, and seek for their narrow set of answers. This narrow line of questioning keeps us from experiencing the infinite potential available through the power of questions and answers. At the core of our dilemma are limiting questions, such as “how can I feel safe from […] Read more »
