And here we are… where the balance is flat. You obviously know that neutrality is the state of not supporting or helping either side in a conflict, however, I don’t want to talk about conflicts, because that’s not that kind of neutrality I have in mind.
The neutrality I want to talk about, showed in the chart of consciousness, is a state of being defined by the absence of decided views, expression or feelings. It is a state where everything just is. A state of acceptance of what is. This state doesn’t have opinions nor directions.
I bet you try to imagine how is that even possible. I believe it’s only possible for a moment at a time because otherwise, you wouldn’t do anything, there would be no reason to act on anything. If you can train your mind to be neutral you would only be able to do that at moments of decision, and the way I see it, there is a good part on it as well as a bad one… I try to be neutral.
The good part is, being neutral, means not letting your emotions control you. A neutral state will help you make objective decisions through the perspective of the present. However, once you’ve decided, you’re no longer neutral, as choice makes neutrality null; you chose a direction, a decision, you’re no longer neutral. Whilst meditating and in a thoughtless state, you are also neutral. You live in the moment and connect with the universal power.
The other part is you may never change nor grow. Being neutral means accepting to stay where you are. People choose to be neutral thinking they will not be responsible for the consequences; they will not upset their dearest; they won’t have to act.
We all have opinions, and we all, and always choose a side. Neutrality is the time before the decision. How long can you last before you make a decision? And the longer you take to reach a decision the more you wasted time.
Neutrality should not be your aim and should not be your home either – it should only be a bench on your path to rest. No matter your decision, you always have 2 positives: you win, or you learn. Not reaching a decision is like watching the sand in an hourglass falling.
I imagine this subject could lead to a very beautiful controversy and I encourage you to let me know your opinion. I will try to be neutral.
Thank you for reading.
Love and Peace!
