For people suffering from depression or going through a time of crisis, the Duality Cross is a visual reminder that, just as the total agony of the Crucifixion was replaced by the joy of the Resurrection, so too a persons life can be transformed from misery to joy. On a cross or a coin, you  see the Risen Christ when looking at the Crucified Christ, just as people in despair cansee another side to life and do not believe that their situations can get better. The Christian message says that life can turn around, just as the cross and coin turns over to the side of hope and glory.

The Duality Cross also symbolizes good and evil. The crucifixion of Jesus was the result of sin and evil the resurrection was the result of Gods promise of eternal life to those who believe that good can triumph over evil.

The Duality Cross demonstrates not only the triumph of the Resurrection over the Crucifixion, but also the historical transition of the meaning of the cross from being a symbol of hate, humiliation, suffering, and death to a symbol of love, life, redemption, and hope.

The Duality Cross also represents the dual nature of Christ: both human and divine. The human nature of Christ died upon his crucifixion, but the divine nature of God was manifested in the Resurrection. The Christian promise is that we can share in the divine nature of God through eternal life in Heaven.
