I've come to realize that in order to be stretched and refined a state of neutrality should be present. Finding the element of being impartial and nonaligned, we can face situations head on and come out on the other side with a true determined direction - one that was found not by bias but by discovery and understanding.
I found this excerpt on how neutrality, if present and preserved, can have radical and influencing results. It's a bit of a case study on the Red Cross. An American fave, we can all agree.
One of the organization's major thinkers, Jean Pictet, wrote, "Red Cross institutions must beware of politics as they would of poison, for it threatens their very lives. Like a swimmer, the Red Cross, is in politics up to its neck. Also like the swimmer, who advances in the water but who drowns if he swallow it, the Red Cross must reckon with politics without becoming part of it."
The Red Cross must keep neutrality to uphold their sole fibers. They cannot be swayed by trends, happy and sad times, or change. All of these things will occur but they will advance in the water without drowning. This quote really struck me. It shares that keeping an outlook of neutrality can garner a true, well-considered viewpoint in all cases.
This feels a bit academic, I realize, but I like it. I hope you do too and that it encourages you to see a neutral state as a safe harbor for learning about yourself.
