What Universe is This-
Why Didn’t You Tell Me the Train Left Early?
It seems like the world has gone bonkers! Or is it just me?
One day I see and connect with all the compassionate and caring people of the world, and I feel like Love and Peace will prevail. I take time for meditation and good intentions for the day. I see the sun shining brightly and hear kids playing in the neighborhood. All is right with the world.
The next day, turning on the news I see so much hatred, death, and destruction. Heaven forbid where this could go. I look outside and see dark gloomy skies and can’t get the horror of war and shootings out of my head. How could this be the same place as the day before?
Is it the same world? Can there be good and bad in the same space? I know, they say that our world is made up of balance. That good and bad (or positive and negative vibrations) need to be present to balance the energy. Not sure if I believe that. Got to think about it.
So, there’s this thing, a concept of yin-yang. Yin represents positive (one universe?). The Yang represents negative (a parallel universe?). It is part of Ancient Chinese philosophy. It describes how opposite energies may be balancing, interconnected, and symbiotic in the natural world.
That thought then takes us to the labyrinth. It is a large circular pattern usually on the ground that can be walked slowly allowing time for introspection and meditation (yin energy, feminine, passive – one universe?). Then returning to the (real) world, refreshed and strong (yang energy, male, aggressive – the second, or parallel universe?). Both aspects compliment each other. Both are needed.
What do you think?
Are we living in two universes at the same time, or are we experiencing a parallel life in one universe? Trying to keep it balanced. I’m doing my part, are you?
I’d love to have your comments and ideas about balancing with negative and positive. Feel free to share this journal entry with others that would be interested.
