Two Forces in Each of Us

Two Forces in Each of Us

by Michael Feeley September 1, 2021


WE EACH HAVE two forces working in us at all times – Anabolic and Catabolic.

Anabolic is the building up of metabolic pathways, healing, positive, constructive.

Catabolic is the breaking down process, usually seen as negative and destructive.

Other forces that come to mind are:

Love – Hate

Respect – Contempt

For – Against

Stormy – Calm

Generous – Tight

Empathy – Apathy

Freedom – Order

Mind – Body

Kind – Vindictive

Warm-hearted – Cold

Optimistic – Pessimistic

Cynical – Hopeful

Genuine – Fake

Courageous – Fearful

Hard-working – Lazy

Confident – Unsure

Grateful – Resentful

Hero – Victim

Happy – Sad

Separate – Together

Plan – Spontaneity

Present – Removed

Leader – Follower

Sameness – Difference

Justice – Injustice

Friend – Enemy

I could keep going about duality, the opposites, the two energy forces in us, and how we’re always trying to make sense of them, have them blend, to be one.

The weather naturally does it very well – painting – music – dance – a builder – a chef – business owner – teacher+++ all aim for harmony. Sometimes there’s success and sometimes not.

It’s an important fact to note – we always have a choice in all we do – how we live, think, feel. Please make the best choices.


Thanks – Michael (he, him)
