um, Illustro, your latest post read a wee bit judgmental to me. granted, in my experience it is usually the other way around, but i find that interesting after the earlier developments in this thread. you may disagree with the idea that it comes across as judgmental, but there was a negative undertone at the least, according to my own virtual ears. this is an opinion based on observation, not meant to sound like an attack. hope that is clear.
i thought BOTH lightwork and darkwork involved service. the former involved service-to-all (ideally, including self as well, and not JUST serving everyone else, which can frankly be a little unhealthy) and the latter involved service-to-self. likewise, i thought both involve self-determination as well, especially in the decision to polarize and which side of the fence one chooses. people serve others-and-self for many reasons, not all of those reasons become a taskmaster. i do not come across lightworkers who are slaves to their limited choices - are you saying you have come across such a thing, or is this all in theory?
perhaps most of this is academic, and would not apply unless a person has consciously chosen to polarize (rather than, for example, simply being the authentic expression of the natural tendencies one is born with, or working with that as a foundation instead of making an arbitrary choice to be one or the other). but even then, i don't see the utility of judging whatever 'side' one did not choose, whether that judgment comes through directly or indirectly.
