Some say opposites attract.
Others say we attract what we are.
Who’s right? How do/would we know?
So many speak or write with certainty, posing such theories as though they know what they’re talking about.
Let’s face it: none of us may know.
Of course, we might know partly at some level.
Though in such cases, it’s a rarity that whoever declares such a “truth” rarely expands upon the context in which it is necessary to grasp, if we are to understand when & where it is true - and when & where it is not.
It might be a truth that both statements are true - on some levels, in different regards, depending on the context.
Perhaps there are times & places where we do attract what we are - connecting with others based on shared interests, values, vibration. Though even within that pairing, there are always opposites - be it that of the most simple male-female dynamic, or different upbringings, etc.
It’s seemed there’s so many in the whole “spiritual” circles that have gone far too far in the “Law Of Attraction” line of thinking, propagating the viewpoint that everything is somehow a vibrational match to us. That every relationship is a mirror. Perhaps it’s time to call bullshit.
Indeed, others allow us the opportunity to see parts of ourselves. Yet, we’d be delusional to take the “we are all one” mantra at face value without giving acknowledgement to the fact that every person is individually differentiated.
Sometimes we may attract what we are, providing a mirror. Others, we may attract an opposite, providing an example through which to experience contrast.
And perhaps at the highest levels of consciousness, it may actually be a matter of both at the same time...
