Sick of living in an either/or world?
We are tired of people taking rigid, either/or positions — done with being manipulated to take sides, neither of which reflect the way we think.
We are loathe to be imposed upon, spoken for, co-opted, assumed and represented — as if we’re helpless victims in need of protection.
We are pushing back. Ready to move away from polarized thinking and actions. And we think you are too.
This blog is the beginning of that movement…
Polarized thinking has been around for a long time. It’s not always bad. There are times when taking a clear side is wise. But, when you’re being seduced to pick one side — the need to belong is capitalized on, causing needless suffering — it’s a problem.
BEYOND POLARITY is dedicated to bringing awareness to the exploitation of our natural tendencies to either/or thinking; the unrelenting contradictory choices that keeps us in conflict, wildly swinging to and fro. Certainly, not moving forward.
We’re committed to sharing ideas on how to recognize polarized thinking. And we offer next steps to rising above or filling in that centre–finding answers that are constructive.
Join us. Share your experiences with polarity, and how you stepped into the debate.
We are independent. Our agenda is to express freely and listen deeply.
Thanks, in advance, for joining us on this quest!
