Aggression! Two opposite Polarities…

        Commonly! Aggression is a fearsome power that is being applied unthinkably for various unjust reasons. The result of human aggression are always disturbing, as such most people do consider aggression are of a power that cause only destruction...

        We can’t deny, history speaks that aggression creates wars all over the world, beyond all good reasoning and most often gets out of control.

        The cause of aggression seems to be the possession of a kind of dynamism that takes control of particular peoples, and makes them act against the order of humanness…
        Likely, it is a power … dynamic, displays great strength and Nature is to fight.
        When this power is used negatively, its effect on peoples, materials and the environments… result are known and devastating, because it is controlled by motives, greed and self imposition. It's impulse knows no bounds, and strength has no limits to what it can accomplish, may fight till end.

        Interestingly, the material things like explosive that has all the same characteristics. When it is being used in known ways with strength to break and displace like warfare.
        But, when we consider opposite uses of this power… It can blast rock resulting creation, most often using material from mines for our ultimate purposes. Also, used on occasions of joy and ceremony, under careful control in fireworks.

        Thus, there are two polarities the same power is used, it's either for evil purpose or for goodness…
        Similarly, in human being his aggression has the same effects of two polarities, as dynamic will possess two opposite possibilities, towards evil purposed or to fight all conditions for good. Significantly, that it uses no limits in whatever way one chooses to use it.
        The transformation of this power can be accomplished from bad to good by intense understanding for peace. This is an innate part of our human make-up (not cosmetic)... needs real education.
        Everyone should know in life to look at all sides of anything & everything as far as possible...Be it material, person or happenings, to find the two polarities that always exist.

        Hope, my attempt will create some more thoughtfulness, carefulness, understanding, judgment and greater possibility of right action and responsibility.

If every person aggressive or not spent a silent moment contemplating the purpose of his action before he actually did it, the world would be a far more peaceful place to live. That would result in the right channelling of the power inside!

agreesion sometime lead to a constructive work if we put it in a right direction
but mostly when we are in agressive mood we just think of one way that is -fight
in sports player uses the agreesion to make pressure on other player not on himself

Thank You

My take on aggression is that a certain amount is required, especially in sports to achieve the act of demolition.

The entire consequences depends on quality of the act..
Aggression is there, demolition is desire, result dwell between polarities.. the need explained in the post, right action & responsibility.:)

I understood the aggression part but may be I am confused with the polarity aspect. Thanks for sharing this thought though. However, I loved the end quote.

@ Saru,
Seriously speaking.:) that I don't know what to speak..What I understand you dislike it, which I like.:)
Your confusion with polarity recognize identity of a quality.."Poet" & myself as reader only.
I prefer to stick to the quotes say.
All the best.
