More exploration of polarities arpgme?
There is different angles to approach these, different terminology one could use.. the Power/Acceptance I would usually refer to as the paths of
aggressivity/passivity (though in the american language, the more accurate word might be "activity" or "assertion"). But Freedom? I do not attach
that to one or the other.
Each path comes with it's own types of freedom. Passivity comes with freedom from responsibility. Aggressivity comes with freedom of choice.
These have equal value, and it is just a matter of personal preference. I consider these to be somewhat illusional, in the sense that they only apply
to the physical world of matter as we know it.
I suspect that on a different level, we ultimately are both simultaneously.
Where we *think* someone else has chosen for us and events are forced upon us, it is not really so. -It is still events that we planned together with
our soul friends, and then chose to not remember that- in order to experience powerlessness. Powerlessness is exciting and rich in many ways!
When we choose to experience powerfulness, aggressivity, then we experience a sense of control over events, but it is still events we collaborated on
with others- even if that is not evident in the role playing.
It's exactly like being in a play, if you've ever done any theater- it is as fun to be a character role like villain or power role, like King, as it
is to be the Hero, or the victim, or the innocent. My soul feels it such.
