Nature is the cause of the human duality. It is in Nature the origin of both good and evil; it is in the human duality the principles which hold the double sense of our existence. They are present in the human behavior. Thus in the duality one will find all sorts of contradiction, such as love and hate, due to the fact that we bear it in ourselves.
The opposites constitute the greatest paradigm of the human nature.
We are all subjugated by the human duality and, as a consequence, man has wedged a battle to surpass these conditions, by engaging with the search of new ways that may help him overcome this submission. These ways are represented by the religions and sciences.
The whole reality is constrained by the ambiguity, where we move between life and death, acceptance and rejection, light and darkness, hot and cold. Nature is complex in her functionality due to her inconstancy and, likewise, are all her children.
The human inconstancy is represented by the physical and emotional conditions pertaining every human being, shifting from happiness to sadness. It is impossible to isolate man from his natural conditions which reflect what Nature is. There is no unilateral aspect weighing over the human being, for the diversity and plurality will always prevail in the human spirit. It is necessary, thus, that we learn how to deal with all differences reflected in the positions taken, regarding the politics, religions, sciences, and philosophy.
For this reason, we cannot hate the snakes for their poison, and neither love the flowers for the perfume. Very often, one will find an amazing perfume in not so beautiful flowers, and no perfume in the beautiful ones. The same is observed in the human beings who are apparently good but cannot hold to virtuous attitudes, which are sometimes are the worst in the human nature.
Man is himself very contradictory since he cannot grasp the whole of his nature and all existing things. Man is incapable of understanding the duality which is over all. The beginning and end of everything is like a sealed box which is hidden from the human consciousness. The Rational Culture, on the other hand, can provide us the wisdom over the duality of human nature, clarifying to us where one can find the equilibrium between these two forces. It is through the Rational Knowledge that one will be able to establish a standpoint over one’s own duality.
This information can be attained in the RATIONAL CULTURE BOOKS.
