Transcendence is beyond the negative or positive

“Why not try and see positive things, to just touch those things and make them bloom?” says Thich Nhat Hanh.

For sure, it sounds right and fair. But in order to see “the positive” we have to be aware of “the negative” as well. That´s indeed the most difficult part: we have to delve into the pit and see what darkness is about. Cause of we don´t take the trouble of comprehending thoroughly the psychology of “Evil”, our being “positive” is naught but the reiteration of the negative. Evil is running away from evil. In plain words, shunning wickedness, gives us a false sense of being positive, as this positiveness is escape – we still remain within the frame of the negative, being good, but evil…Look at most peoples´ life – good intentions, dire outcome.

The kind of “positiveness” I am talking about comes naturally by itself when Darkness has been understood and dealt with. We have to take the trouble of dealing all the way with opposites if we want to gain a clear vision.

Clear vision, that is, the real “Positive” is the derivative of “Transcendent”… and Transcendence is the middle point beyond opposites.


About julienmatei
I feel an inner urge to express what I see, to communicate and share with others all these impressions. Often the things I see are there, not yet manifest, but waiting... to be observed, talked about, and embraced. These new insights need another approach, a more vivid curiosity... Due to fear and prejudice we prefer to see only "the official" truth - but THE OFFICIAL TRUTH IS DEAD - being dead, it has nothing to give... We can continue pretending Death is fascinating or... we can take the trouble to LIVE... THE NEW has no definition yet... Again, IT requires another "perception", the courage to apprehend everything differently, from a totally new angle, with new confidence and inquisitive touch. This blog is not about interesting concepts, it is about participation... finding new solutions, inspiration, togetherness.

    Yes. Positive is negative. Negative is positive. Each infers the other.

    Many concepts appear to be ‘opposites’. But are they? Black-White. Cold-Hot. Bright-Dim. Hard-Soft. Dead-Alive. Happy-Sad. Male-Female. Harmony-Discord.

    Is it possible to know ‘the one’ without ‘the other’? The transcendent ‘middle point’ — is it a recognition that all is one?
