“One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the darkness conscious.”
Practice makes…well we were about to say perfect, but you have probably realized by now that nothing is perfectly good or bad. Nevertheless, practice will enable you to master the art of inversion.
Do the exercise from Part 1 by applying it to all those things – situations, people, food, behaviors – that you are currently holding a dislike for. Can you discover their positive sides and once you have discovered them – can you embrace them with all the inspiration as if they are your biggest wish?
After you have willingly discovered and logically processed the positive sides to the things that you dislike, can you enjoy doing these things? Once you have managed to logically see how something is good, valuable and useful, can you work your hologram into doing and truly accepting it?
If you manage to do this exercise, you can do anything!
Example 1: You don’t like the taste of garlic, yet you know how healthy it is for your body. Therefore, you have the logical basis for consuming garlic with each meal for the next 2 weeks.
Example 2: You don’t like talking to strangers. For the next two weeks talk to any stranger you encounter at any place you go.
Example 3: You don’t like it when you partner wakes you up in the middle of the night in order to have sex with you. Tell your partner to wake you up in the middle of every night for the next 2 weeks so that you have sex.
‘’Can you remind us again what is the exact point of doing this exercise?’’
The point of this exercise if to see beyond the illusion of polarities and preferences. Because they are but the meaning we attach in our own heads. By applying the exercise, you will soon start to realize that there is no such thing as bad creation/situation/food and so on. Anything that we apply for more than 13 days starts to seem wonderful to us.
“To destroy an undesirable rate of mental vibration, put into operation the Principle of Polarity and concentrate upon the opposite pole to that which you desire to suppress. Kill out the undesirable by changing its polarity.”—The Kybalion.
Do this exercise for 13 days straight.
