Yin Yang polarity

As it continues on the next page: “.. idealism to cultivate the former and be rid of the latter flourishes throughout much of the world. To the traditional way of Chinese thinking, this is incomprehensible as an electric current with both the positive and negative poles, for polarity is the principle that + and -, north and south are different aspects of one and the same system, and that the disappearance of either one of them would be the disappearance of the system.”

Grateful to read this word (Thank you JAAP), it depicted my source for frustration over working in different cultural systems this year very clear. I grew up in a different more linear, aspiration for progress and growth driven system of thought. Words and meaning to light, good to win, and bright to be over appreciated over black, linear view towards history versus cyclical, dogma’s on growth, liberty and heaven in drained in daily live.

Make cultural difference not a source for frustration and see other side as part of me as well. Now find a way to study and investigate more…..
