There is no good or bad. I say this because it is true in our experience on earth. We come into these physical bodies to experience deep emotions and strong beliefs to create our realities to be challenging growth opportunities. There is no bad or good, and you can learn to work consciously with these energies and make great change happen.
When we see and react to someone being “bad” we bump up against our own feelings of our personal goodness and badness. When we judge it’s our personal beliefs we are judging. How do I fit into this experience? Do I have resistance in my body to this feeling?
What we resist we are creating negative of blocking energy, and unconsciously increase the feeling, belief or judgement of it. This is why so many spiritual traditions teach non-judgement, neutrality, and equanimity as a spiritual path. It’s a way to hold our center as we weave through this world full of contradicting feelings. That's diversity!
Find the center and hold that place noticing what pulls your attention away from that center. Notice also what pulls your attention to that practice of being centered.
If there is no bad or good, why this constant attack of black and white intensity, resistance and even hate? Why do we react so strongly human ugliness? Why is institutionalized violence and repression seemingly ignored or accepted as part of the culture? Or, why is this so confusing that we can’t just step out of racist beliefs? How much resistance is there in your body when you feel into the experience of seeing violence? Receiving unprovoked violence in person is an even deeper feeling of resistance, then anger, then if we can’t move past this into better experiences, we become dispassionate or depressed, or we hate the experience and those who participate in it. Being in that situation leads to anxiety, overwhelm, narrowing of focus, and these ultimately limit potential and block success.
Some of us take the path of conscious intention, reject the painful experience, and turn towards other ways of being in the world. Others fall into ignorance with a passion.
A spiritual path, with generosity, helping others, creating opportunity for love and kindness, and modeling our belief in humanity, with positive intentions for all to see. Changing our way of being in relationship to suffering is part of this. It is a conscious choice to learn how to grow through the challenges created by living with diverse levels of consciousness and intention. Genuine healing comes with having less resistance, being able to love the multifaceted breadth of life on earth, and working for more of what we want to grow.
If you are wondering how to do more, work with intention.
When you set your intentions, please include benevolence. Recognize the importance of doing not only for yourself, but for the highest and greatest benefit of all peoples and for the benefit of all living things. Benevolent intention will increase the support you receive from the Universe as you walk along your path. Examine your intentions and see if you can add this magical quality to your life. You will be amazed with the results.
