:: Dualism - Two Basic Opposing Elements
Any philosophical system that seeks to explain all phenomena in terms of two distinct and irreducible principles. It is opposed to monism and pluralism. In Plato's philosophy there is an ultimate dualism of being and becoming, of ideas and matter. Aristotle criticized Plato's doctrine of the transcendence of ideas, but he was unable to escape the dualism of form and matter.
In modern metaphysics this dualism has been a persistent concept.

:: Metaphor
We have converted our wounds into a type of relationship. "Currency that we use in order to control situations and people"
By C. Myss
:: Faith
The Man who became known as Buddha, preached another alternative to the ritual bound Brahmanism of 6th Century BCE India. His teachings were generally focused on earthly sufferings and its cure. Many religions offer comforting supernatural solutions to the difficulties of earthly life. In early forms, Buddhism was quite different. It held that our salvation from suffering lies only in our own efforts. The Buddha taught that in understanding how we create suffering ourselves we can become free.
Shinto It is said that Shinto has no founder, no orthodox canon of sacred literature and no code of ethical requirements. Shinto is so ancient and deep seated; that those who practice them have forgot the symbolic meanings of their rituals. It began as the local religion of agricultural communities and had no name until Buddhism; the former was labeled 'shin' meaning 'Divine Being', 'do' way. At one time it was used by the central government to inspire nationalism, but due to the separation of the church and State after World War II, Shinto quietly returned to its roots. These are described as affinity with natural beauty, harmony with the spirits and purification rituals.
