Polarity Dance

Updated on July 12, 2012

I’m a reflection, and so are you

Each is connected in all that we do

The human condition, such pleasure and pain

A flowering moment of losses and gain

The pattern is set, yet everything is chance

I find myself in everyone I see

Your funhouse reflections it seems to me

I am the center of this universe of all that I know

Would I ask another they’d say that’s not so

Fact and fabric of this existence polarity dance

I am asleep and I am awake

What I have given is what I take

Of love and fear emotion is created

From them hope and despair are generated

Our common self is why so much is said with a glance

I’ve hurt myself more than I have another

Like the knowing digs you give an intimate lover

I am awake and I am asleep

I laugh in life and at times I weep

Woof and warp of realities polarity dance

My growing wise mind knows what it takes

Yet my simple mind keeps making the same mistakes

My logical self sees reason in all that is there

My emotional self feels and of logic it doesn’t care

So many of us walk our paths mostly in a trance

I know what’s happening and haven’t a clue

Paying attention at times is so hard to do

To what was and what might be I wander away

Again I bring myself back to the moment here today

Is isn’t, yes no, zero one, positive negative, good bad

All part and parcel of our polarity dance

      I know a woman who channels a being from a tri-polar universe, Amaretha. As opposed to all things being pulled into two, everything's pulled into three there. It's one of those things that I think is real, but it's of such value to me, that I don't care whether it is or not. She does an internet broadcast on what is Wednesdays 7pm [pacific time] here. Here's a link to Amrita's [the one channeling] blog if your curious.

      Oh you do that too. I think there are many others like us who do the same. In my opinion you have done well in exploring our dual nature.

      I wrote so many of these to clarify for myself what I was striving to understand.

      Yes that about sums up our dance with polarity. I appreciate your ability to articulate it well. Awesomely done! Oh and I love your unique art. A creative genius.
