I feel the same way, and I don't feel that I'm limiting myself in any way regardless of how others may perceive my choice to not choose a side.
I think that's a bit like claiming that human beings are unable to chew gum and walk at the same time. That may be your experience and the experience of a number of people you know, but it isn't mine. Also, I thought it was interesting that you mentioned "consciously focus[ing] on the two". I don't do that, myself. In fact, I haven't had any trouble balancing the two since I stopped trying to consciously figure out how to balance them, and left it in the hands of my intuition to figure it out for me.
I've never had any trouble with that either.
I find that people who are in touch with both their feminine and masculine sides, and make use of the best elements of both, are more powerful (and enjoyable to be around) than those who consciously choose to embrace one side and not the other. So yes; I find reframing lightwork and darkwork in those terms to be very helpful. |
They're called 'whole people'. They are usually the most balanced and pleasant to be around, yes.
