Law of Cycles - Dancing to Natures Song
The world of nature moves in rhythms, patterns, and cycles-the passing of the seasons, the movement of the stars, the ebb and flow of the tides. The seasons do not push one another; neither do clouds race the wind across the sky. All things happen in their own good time-rising and falling and rising like ocean waves, in the circles of time. By Dan Millman

4 Mystical

:: 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.

The Universe is split into two who are constantly at war with each other.
:: Metaphor
Trust or Fear is the responsibility of the person you become.
:: Faith
Judaism has no single founder, no central leader or any group making theological decisions, it is the diverse tradition associated with the Jewish people. In religious terms, it is known that they are those who experience their long and often difficult history as a continuing dialogue with God. The Jewish history began with stories recounted in the Hebrew Bible or Tanakh. There history was that of the creation of the world by a supreme deity, or God and through the patriarchs, matriarchs and Moses, who spoke to God and then led the people according to God's commandments. When the holy center of Judaism, the temple of Jerusalem, was captured and destroyed by the Romans in 70CE, Jewish history is that of a dispersed people, finding unity in their evolving teachings and traditional practices, which were eventually codified in the great compendium of Jewish law and lore, the Talmun. The Jewish people hold the Pentateuch, being the 'five books of Moses' appear at the beginning of the Tanakh, as the most sacred part of the scriptures. Traditionalists believe that the books were divinely revealed to Moses and also written by him as a single document. Hebrew scriptures begin with the account of the creation of 'heaven and earth' by God in six days. After God had created the material universe, God then created Man and Woman in the divine 'image' or 'likeness'. In this account God is shown as a transcendent Creator without origins, gender or form.
