August 20

Inner Growth Word of the Day: Dualistic


Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (adj.) 1. a theory that considers reality to consist of two irreducible elements or modes.  2. the quality or state of being dual or of having a dual nature.


Dualistic in a sentence: The traditional dualistic mindset is coming to an end as the world transforms towards a love and collaborative mindset.


Dualistic in action: When things are either one way or the other, that is dualistic.


Dualistic and inner growth: Taking a look at the things you apply a dualistic mindset to brings about your inner feelings and opinions on those matters to the surface.  In seeing what they are you are able to expand your mindset on those matters and allow the life lessons that come from expanding your view on things to come your way and with them also inner growth.


Dualistic and inner growth action steps:

  1. In-depth self-exploration questions: What does a dualistic mindset mean to me? What do I apply a dualistic mindset to?  When did I first think about dualistic opinions?  How has my dualistic mindset affected my life?  Who did I acquire my dualistic opinions from?  In what ways do I apply dualistic thoughts?  What have been some of my biggest life lessons from applying a dualistic view in those moments?


  1. List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with dualistic at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From this list pick three words that remind you of the essence of your dualistic thoughts.  Pick one of the three and write about why this one stood out from the other two and use the words from your list to write about it.


  1. Bring your awareness to your feelings about dualistic opinions and mindsets, and see where they stem from, as well as where they go. As you sit in silence take note to where you feel more of the emotions that are coming about.  When you’re ready allow thoughts to come in and focus on the first dualistic life experience that comes to mind.
