MKE 2018, Week 19 – Ending Duality?

4. All things are finally resolvable into the same element and as they are thus translatable, one into the other, they must ever be in relation and may never be in opposition to one another.
5. In the physical
world there are innumerable contrasts, and these may for convenience sake, be designated by distinctive names. There are sizes, colors, shades or ends to all things. There is a North Pole, and a South Pole, an inside and an outside, a seen and an unseen, but these expressions merely serve to place extremes in contrast.
6. They are names given to two different parts of one quantity. The two extremes are relative; they are not separate
entities, but are two parts or aspects of the whole.
7. In the mental
world we find the same law; we speak of knowledge and ignorance, but ignorance is but a lack of knowledge and is therefore found to be simply a word to express the absence of knowledge; it has no principle in itself.
8. In the Moral
World we again find the same law; we speak of good and evil, but Good is a reality, something tangible, while Evil is found to be simply a negative condition, the absence of Good. Evil is sometimes thought to be a very real condition, but it has no principle, no vitality, no life; we know this because it can always be destroyed by Good; just as Truth destroys Error and light destroys darkness, so Evil vanishes when Good appears; there is therefore but one principle in the Moral World.
9. We find exactly the same law obtaining in the Spiritual world; we speak of Mind and Matter as two separate entities, but clearer insight makes it evident that there is but one operative principle and that is Mind.

Charles Haanel, ‘The Master Key System’, Part XIX

Through the millennia we humans have had a tendency to view every part of our world as incompatible contrasts, somehow functioning together in a strange kind of balance.
Haanel here offers a view of one extreme being nothing but the absence of the other and that every area of the natural world is ruled by a single principle.

What do You think about this view of the world?

Is it comforting? Or confusing?

Have You taken it into the SIT with You?
