Neutrality   Leave a comment

Neutrality (250):

The emotions at this level are trust and safety. Here, people are non-judgmental, objective, and able to see things as they truly are. They are not attached to possessions, situations, results, and can roll with the punches in life. If they are not able to get something, they are equally happy settling for something else.

This is NOT the same as apathy – the power of neutrality comes from a positive place, where one recognizes his/her power, ability, and worth, and does not feel the need to prove anything to anyone. On the other hand, apathy comes from feeling forsaken, resulting in nonchalance and jadedness toward the external world. The process is one of release (of everything). The life view is satisfactory, where anything goes. These people are easy to get along; however, they are difficult to engage toward causes and visions because they are detached toward everything.

Justice consists not in being neutral between right and wrong, but finding out the right and upholding it, wherever found, against the wrong. Neutrality is at times a graver sin than belligerence. The opposite of love is not a hate, it’s indifference. I don’t represent anyone’s opinion. Not even my own. I’m neutral. Take sides. Neutrality helps the oppressor, never the victim. Silence encourages the tormentor, never the tormented. Neutral men are the devil’s allies. A bridge has no allegiance to either side. Indeed, it is impossible to be neutral. In a world already moving in certain directions, where wealth and power are already distributed in certain ways, neutrality means accepting the way things are now. It is a world of clashing interests – war against peace, nationalism against internationalism, equality against greed, and democracy against elitism – and it seems to me both impossible and undesirable to be neutral in those conflicts. Neutrals are free, unaffected and disengaged.
