I think the problem people have with polarity is that they understand on an intellectual level that both polarities are required in the universe so they find it hard to limit themselves to either polarity.
At the same time I understand that a big part of power is that it's a directional force. The narrower the focus, the more energy is laser like. Otherwise it's dissipated and therefore not powerful.
Something that should be emphasized is how the opposite polarity comes into play when you focus on one of the polarities. Because in the world you need both, by choosing a polarity you're just choosing your focus but the other polarity is still extremely important.
For instance, darkworking a business means you're intending huge gains for yourself and your focus is creating an empire which expands your power and ability to enjoy yourself. However, a fundamental tenant of being successful in business is giving (lightworking), otherwise nobody's going to give you any cash!! So while you're focusing on building your riches, you also obviously have to focus on giving people what you want.
Take blogging for instance. A darkworker wants to be successful for himself, he goes online to research being successful at blogging and finds out that you must focus on giving value that people enjoy in order to be successful. Therefore in order to maximise his results and achieve his dark desire, he has to focus on the opposite polarity or else he fails! But if he read the article on polarity he may be paralysed at this stage wondering if he should focus only on taking and therefore fail at his dark goal, or if he should focus on giving and possibly limit his power. This is the heart of the problem people have and leads to confusion and paralysis.
Or from the other side, think about getting into a relationship. If you're a lightworker you want to make a big difference in giving. If you're a goodlooking, great person with many options, in pure lightworker sense then you should choose the most down and out, not-very-good-lookin person in order to make the biggest giving impact. You'd be like a winning lottery ticket for this person. But in order to give genuine affection you have to focus on your desires and what you WANT in a person (opposite polarity).
If you think of Hitler, I believe he was a lightworker. He was not a selfish person, he was very inspirational, wanting to achieve what he thought was a divine plan for his country and he thought he was being led by God to do his work. To be of service to God, whether it's delusional or not, you have to have a humility and a sense of service. I don't think Hitler was a nice man. But I think he was a lightworker.
Personally accoarding to the definitions I think I'm a darkworker. Because I only do things which feel good to me. I work to get money and enjoy myself. Because I work in a commission structured role, the better I do at my job (giving) the more money I get. Therefore I give a hell of a lot. And enjoy helping people, but because I enjoy the feelings from helping people and it makes me feel more worthwhile. If helping people made me feel crap, then I wouldn't do it. I enjoy making an impact in people's lives because it makes me feel good. Infact all my actions revolve on whether it feels good to me or not. But I don't resonate with how that makes me more like say Emperor Palpetine from Star Wars (reference to one of Steve's articles). And I don't resonate with how it comes from a place of fear or how it means you don't have loving relationships. You can have a direction inflow of love which is darkworking... and in order to get a big directional inflow of love, other people are going to have to love what you're giving!
As you can see I'm not disagreeing with Steve, just drawing attention to things I believe should be emphasized.
