EAL 43: Resolving Duality and Opposition in Our Own Lives
If we are going to resolve the issues that face our world, we are going to need to understand the foundation of those issues—duality and opposition.
In today’s episode I go into much more detail about what creates the opposition of one side against another, as well as how we can begin to resolve this in our own lives.
It is only as more individuals learn how to champion individuality, holding a sacred space for themselves and for the others in their lives, that we will end the constant conflicts, wars and corruption that result when we are held in the fear of duality.
