It's limiting to ascribe man's religious interpretation to the opposing forces in our lives. It creates a division of not wanting to accept some parts of ourselves, because we are putting them into a category of acceptable vs. unacceptable(eg. I'll accept the good, but not the evil). Instead, in realizing we have polarities, yin and yang, opposing forces that create a vibration (like magnetic forces) that enable us to carry out action and inaction, it allow us to accept all parts of ourselves. We need our active and our passive, our logic and our intuitions, etc. Both parts help fuel each other - to act, to reflect, to change. When we begin to accept all parts of ourselves and love ourselves, we then begin to change how we choose our actions and inactions. And we have self-knowledge, self-acceptance, and self-worth growing and supporting us. We begin to heal parts of ourselves that we walled off, to understand the larger picture of hurt or fear that influences actions. When we can extend this to ourselves, we can better extend it to others. Little by little, we change.
