Twin Opposites

We are all filters of the same life-source.  By comparing yourself to another, especially for the sake of advancement, is to deny the very purpose of your duality.

Seek that which makes you different, and you will clearly see how it is the same.

Make what is against you for you as you adapt to overcome even the harshest of circumstances.


About the Tesserean Oracle

This card is part of the Tesserean Oracle.  Each card comes with a profound background filled with lessons, examples, and strategies based on  Tesserean perspectives. (See physical deck below)

The Oracle is meant to allow you to enter a self-observational state, which can give you a sense of clarity, help fight overwhelm, and offer direction within your life..

Once the cards are all presented here on the site, I will put them into a physical deck for you to use.  The deck will come with a booklet (physical or web based), which will offer further instruction, deeper explanation and background of each card, and unique layouts for obtaining clarity,

    Please expand on this card.
    I am intrigued.
    It makes sense and then I want to know the steps how to…
    I am living it right now.
    There are people persecuting me currently -some high on a social and political standing and their followers who are at the other end of the spectrum very low with intent to do harm to my being just because they somehow think it will make them feel more adequate, relevant etc to do so.
    How can I use Twin mirror to help turn this persecution to my advantage.
    Thus far I have remained outwardly calm though internally I feel just as shaky as they are. They are perpetuating blatant lies about me on the internet social media and in the news. Anything I come up with to “counter” the attacks is turned back against me.
    I feel this oracle brush against the outer edge of my awareness tickling me like an insistent feather nudging me that there is true way through here…

      Thea,
      Without knowing your situation, I can only express what the card means to me. I hope this helps, so please read between the lines for your own circumstances.

      When faced with a challenge, especially from another person, organization, or group, I ask a very incongruent question.

      “What can I give to the other party that will help strengthen their argument against me?”

      This is what allows me to truly see what’s against me and, where their ignorance (if any) truly lies. For example. I once did a call where someone from another country told my interviewer that it was because of people like me that Obama was president, and that children in NY were being raped by their parents. Insane right?

      Well, I asked the “How can I support their claim” question, and here’s what I came up with.

      First, and most obvious, there was no need to defend myself because the claim was absolutely ridiculous. Regardless, they were still making it and it was causing a stir as an American trying to sell a product to people outside of the US. Next, I stepped into their shoes and almost instantly realized that they simply hated Americans. Not because of me personally, but because of Americans fortunate place in society. In short, this person was upset, and maybe even jealous based on their own hardships, which absolutely made sense and was arguable on their account.

      You see, when people from a group feel less fortunate, they will have no problem attacking others who are fortunate, or are in a place of power, i.e. a better place them themselves. And, especially, if that person (as I was/am) is an outsider to their own community, country, or culture.

      So, I understood their argument to the point where I agreed “emotionally” with it.

      My next step was to bring up my obvious shortcomings (which in this case was the fact that I simply had more opportunity than they did and/or took advantage of it by following my path.), then agreed with their suffering.

      This is the part where you make what’s against you for you.

      After agreeing with them (instead of rebutting their claim which will get you NOWHERE), I sympathized, so I could earn their trust. I mean, we are all on the same page, it’s just our story that makes it feel not so. The common goal we now both had, was the understanding of our own situations as individuals, based on our circumstances. In other words, I may be fortunate, but I’ve worked my ass off through all sorts of challenges to get where I’m at. So, I wasn’t going to blame or judge them, instead, I told them that I understood their position, but I also understood persecution, ill will, and false judgement.

      Finally, I agreed with the corruption within all humans (not just our leaders), and that was why I did the work I did. (Tessera) I even went as far as to explain what it feels like to “be the bad guy”, and it wasn’t for me. Lastly, I shared that the people in power most likely didn’t see the corruption within their own hearts. In short, I was asking for forgiveness not just for myself, but also for the person condemning me, as well as the people they were comparing me to.

      You see, I didn’t defend myself straight out, I simply took ownership of THEIR words, then turned it around to justify (acknowledge) their frustration, settle our differences, and place the attention to where it truly resided. (We all make false claims and there’s always a better way, place, or time, to express ourselves.)

      If you are an outsider and all the sudden find yourself in a place of control, or powerl, you must acknowledge, with sincere humility, that you are a human being who makes mistakes too. Just keep in mind that humility can often seem like an apology better than actually saying your sorry.

      And, a word of caution. Many times saying your sorry can also come across as a relinquishment of power. This is where we must draw the line when we are – sincerely – falsely judged. We don’t want to give up our power to ignorance, we want to understand our combatants, offer them acknowledgement, then turn the tables through agreement and empathy.

      People simply want to be acknowledged, and that’s what this card is about. It’s about acknowledging people as their champion, not as someone better than them or more fortunate. There is no better service to offer than that. No matter who you are, where you came from, or how badly you screw up your responsibility, know that we are all one, and if we stick together, everyone wins.

      Hope that helps.
      Adam
      PS I just wrote this on the fly without edits, so I may go back and change it later if it’s too confusing. If you’d like to talk on your personal situation, you have my email. I’d be glad to consult with you to help see you through.

        Thank you Adam.
        You have confirmed so beautifully what I have been doing and that this is what the card meant. It is such a challenging position to find ourselves in and am going to recommit to keep doing this work this way. Namaste

          That’s wonderful to hear, really. I know it’s not easy, especially when anyone with a computer and a chip on their shoulder can say hurtful things without thinking. All you can do is your best.
          There will be a major update to these cards soon too.

          And, I’m always here to help! 😉
