The Changes - "Polarity Shift"
Imagine the pendulum of a clock swinging back and forth around its center of gravity. The transition period is the time window when the pendulum swings to its end and turns around. Or in terms of an hourglass, the greatest changes will happen when it flips to the other side.
When things reverse to their polar opposite, we will refer to this as a "Polarity Shift". This is different from the “Pole Shift” when the Earth magnetic poles reverse themselves, although the phenomenon is also one type of “Polarity Shift” in the nature world.
Not only magnetic fields and electric charges have positive-negative poles, many things in nature exist in polar opposites, from quantum particles to strands of DNA, from different seasons on the planet to gender divide. Even in society, there are opposing views, the contrast between rich and poor, rulers versus citizens, etc.
Between the two sides, there may be one side that is more dominant, aggressive, outgoing, intense, and active. The polar opposite is more receptive, docile, introvert, or passive. For example, in a male-female relationship, this polar contrast can be quite obvious. The binary existence is everywhere in nature, as the two sides balance off and compliment each other.
Using a parent-to-children relationship as an example, parents are the dominant side when children are young. This relationship will switch to the opposite side when parents get old, and children become the dominant force in the family. This is exactly what happens during the “Polarity Shift” or the transition period.
In society, think about the rich becoming poor and poor becoming rich, this certainly will shake up people a great deal. Think about the poor nations becoming rich and rich nations becoming poor. Think about how the old way of European domination is being replaced by the rising power of other countries, and how the northern hemisphere will become more balanced by the development of the southern hemisphere. These phenomena are already happening. You just have to pay attention and put them into a proper perspective to recognize it.
And then there are the major shifts happening now between males and females, old and young. In this Yin-Yang Polarity Shift, women have and will continue to become more powerful and the main source of change in the society (Yin is the feminine side, Yang is the masculine side). Think of the power structure of the old versus the young. Today's children and younger generations are far more powerful and digitally adaptive or technologically capable than their older counterpart.
Another major shift happening within the global community is the change from the head to the heart. The intellectual and mental ability of the human race must be balanced by compassion and altruistic intent from the heart. Otherwise, over-development of technology and over-use of mental faculty for selfish-gain and private interest will bring destruction to the entire human race and the planet.
People will need to learn how to reconnect to their feelings and emotions, as a "heart-centered" relationship is more beneficial than “head-centered”. This will fundamentally change the way how people relate to each other, how communities are formed, and how business is conducted. More importantly, the way how people are related to the Planet Earth will go through a Polarity Shift (reverse of the mindset) to give a way to a more sustainable way of living that makes a more ecological sense.
The Other Side of You
The Polarity Shift for humanity overall, in a nutshell, is about how you can win over the collective karma and thousands of years of human programming which are defined and confined by the ego's need and greed. As Buddhist, Christian, and all other major traditions have taught thousands of years ago - there is an upside down world that how saints and gods live. Most people cannot see and sense its existence, because the way the human mind operates and looks at things is completely the opposite of the Universal Mind. Humanity is entering a particular time window corresponding to the Earth Transition period, during which many people are going through spiritual awakening and many more are in the process of switching over to the Universal Mind - the opposite of the human ego.
A human ego is in essence, the collective life experiences, memories, possessions, and identities since a person is born, including body features, family relationships, schooling, jobs, money, fame and titles, racial and cultural background, value and belief systems, etc. In other words, everything you think you have and own, is part of the ego’s possession. The subconscious mind under the ego’s operation continues to control and drive all aspects of your behaviors and your life. Your ego's interest is to add more to its possession, accumulate more, sort of speaking, be it either material things, relationships, experiences or achievements. In doing so, it tries to fill whatever it feels lacking - a sense of insecurity and inadequacy inside, so it can substantiate its significance, superiority and dominance over others.
Due to the value system and competitiveness promoted by the current society, the sense of lacking and inadequacy thus the drive to get more stuff, becomes even more intensified. But the more you attach to the ego's identity, with its insatiable need and greed, the more you become hooked to its hunger and thirst. Those who live with their ego's desires are like lost travelers in a desert who drink salty water to quench their thirst. The more you fill your ego's emptiness, the bigger this emptiness grows, and the more appetite it will have.
In this time window, more people will be awakened and recognize this vicious cycle at work and its self-destructive nature. It takes courage and conscientious effort to fight with this addiction and switch from the "addition" mode to the opposite "subtraction" mode - the more you abandon your identity with your human ego, the more you can be connected to your Essence or your TRUE SELF, which is always content, complete, at ease, in peace, and in total perfection. It does things out of love, altruism, and genuine interest, rather than driven by need and greed. In doing so, you will be able to shift to the opposite side of seeing things or the perspective of the Universal Mind. The way of your old mode of thinking and living will undergo a fundamental change that can be both shocking and miraculous at the same time. And sooner or later, you will start to identify and live with your true nature, rather than the ego's identity.
Some people may call this process "ascension", but it is more accurately a Polarity Shift rather than moving continuously towards something more or higher. When you are able to make this switch, you can become joyful, confident, and empowered, in what you need to do, as inspiration and energy will continue to flow from within, your TRUE SELF. At the same time, you will become very clear in what you want to do, where you shall go, and who you should be friends with, driven by the Essence or the Divine Will rather than your ego's lack and greed. Your healing will come directly from the Sacred Source within in case you are ill or get lost. Your life path will be set completely differently.
