Principle 11 Opposites 4 and a movie!

Principle 11, fourth week
This month we are focusing on principle #11 It is also called “The Principle of the Negation of Opposites” it says:


“It does not matter in what faction events have placed you what matters is for you to understand that you have not chosen any faction.”

Over the last three weeks we looked at some general impressions about this principle how we could have applied it in the past, and how we might apply in the present. This week we’ll turn to how we might apply it in the present and future.


I find the best way to approach these kind of considerations is concretely — personally my approach is pretty simple, I’ll take a look at the principle and try to discover at least one situation where applying it could make a difference in the outcome (or my understanding) of unfolding events.

This month we are focusing on principle #11 It is also called “The Principle of the Negation of Opposites” it says: “It does not matter in what faction events have placed you what matters is for you to understand that you have not chosen any faction.”

Last week we looked at some general impressions about this principle. This week we’ll focus on how we could have applied it in the past. In following weeks we’ll turn to how we might apply it in the present and future.


I find the best way to approach these kind of considerations is concretely — that means that this week I’ll take a look at the principle and try to discover at least one situation where applying the principle made or could have made a difference in the outcome of events, or at least how I felt about that outcome.
