Transcending Positive and Negative Poles


The game we play on the causal plane as kings and warriors is mostly not about positive and negative poles. We almost completely experience the essential nature of these roles and therefore transcend both negative and positive poles. As kings, for example, we are not concentrating on staying in mastery and avoiding tyranny. There is a vibration associated with us as kings that relates to mastery, but it is not our focus, because we have already played the game of dualities. Both mastery and tyranny are integrated into our consciousness.

The positive pole of scholar is knowledge, the negative pole, theory. When a scholar truly sees theory, knowledge becomes illuminated. He is then complete regarding that duality and not limited by either theory or knowledge. He no longer merely has knowledge; he is the embodiment and process of knowledge, so he does not have to focus on it. He experiences the essential nature of the scholar vibration.

Expansion occurs through the positive poles--acting from love, in other words--but the experience of the negative poles, acting from fear, is not wasted. It contributes to your knowledge of love. You experience as much fear as you need to in order to see it clearly and fully awaken to the reality of love. As you do, you transcend both the negative and positive sides of things, and you develop the capacity simply to be.

Lessons about these dualities are usually not completed on the physical plane. They continue onto the astral plane until the entity recombines. Then a new game begins, which could not be played if the previous game had not been played.
