There is an infinite balance in the universe that equilibrates the ups and downs of life evenly and equally at all times. Like gravity or magnetism the balance is invisible to the eye and has to be examined and studied, to be brought out of obscurity into understanding. Sir Isaac Newton observed, for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. While Newton was referring to the laws of physics his theories extend beyond the commonly accepted science to include the very fabric of the universe and govern the lives of each and every person living on the planet.
To put it simply good and bad exist in harmony together at all times and in all places, but it is a persons perception and perspective that create the illusion of things being either good or bad. If people understood perfectly the laws of physics that Newton uncovered they would begin to see that for every perceived bad circumstance, event or situation there is an equal and opposite good perception waiting to be identified and vice versa.
The economy may be down and people have lost jobs, but that is only the beginning. The housing markets have dropped because of the foreclosure rate that may be bad for those that have been forced to find alternative places to live, but on the opposite side of all the perceived negatives are the positives. People forced to move out of homes that they could not afford are finding that they can now manage their finances better as people that once thought home ownership was beyond their reach are buying homes that are now available at discounted prices. Even the banks and lenders are benefiting again by the drop in interest rates that are allowing people to take advantage of low mortgage rates and refinancing options that they could not expect to see before the economic downturn.
Veteran loans and refinancing options are helping people to have the good amid the bad and turn the economy around by extending home loans to people that are taking advantage of the positives with lower interest rates and home prices that may appear to be negative to some but that demonstrate an equal and opposite balance in reality.
While things have been dark there has always been an equal amount of light shinning in the darkness for those that have the wisdom to see both sides of good and bad and are able to see the balance that exists between the two polar opposites with unbiased perspective. Look for the opposite, believing that it exists and you will being to see the truth of Newtons law pertaining to the there being an equal and opposite force or action to every event, every situation and every circumstance that comes into existence. Reality is the balancing of perceptions and understanding that both opposites must exist together in order to sustain the unseen laws of the universe that support life.
