Is There Such A Thing as Right and Wrong, Good and Bad?
TAM got me thinking that this would probably be a great topic to discuss. This is one of my favorite topics because I find it is at the core of so many things in life.
Is there such a thing as right and wrong? Is everything relative? Should there be all good? Should there be no bad? What is the difference between good and bad? Where did the concepts of good and bad come from?
I think this is a fairly involved question that can't easily be answered with a simple yes or no.
I think there are different qualities that go into understanding this question such as perspective, degree and intention.
From my current understanding I see 3rd density that we live in to be based around duality. These are dynamics that are at the core of 3rd density. I see this as a science thing where the core of matter and energy in 3rd density is based around polarity where for form to exist there has to be some type of plus and negative. So I think the basis of the universe at our generally perceived frequency is built around this concept. Outside of our frequency and at higher densities I'm not so sure and I could see the whole polarity game operating completely differently if at all. Now with that said I think the concepts of good and bad and things like this somewhat build on top of the whole duality dynamics of this density.
Here is something I have come to understand myself that I think is very powerful: There is no such thing as an incorrect choice, but there are correct and incorrect ways to carry out that choice in this reality. This brings in a lot of hierarchical things and perspective.
For example, is it wrong to kill somebody? Most people would say yes. But I won't say that killing somebody is an incorrect choice, it depends. Yeah, most of the time it is wrong to kill somebody, of course. But what about in self defense? What if you're 2 seconds from having your head cut off by them, then is it wrong? Now the tables have turned and it's probably not. So the circumstance plays a lot into this.
So are there universal principles or core right and wrongs that can apply to all circumstances? It depends what level you're looking at it. At the universal level I don't really think so. At the human level maybe, but that also depends on the current consciousness of society and other things. What's considered right today at the human level may be wrong tomorrow. I don't think these right and wrongs change or matter as much at the universal level. To the universe I think it is all just energy, not good or bad. Just energy.
So as humans, animals, plants, matter or whatever else we all have a set perspective of how energy should be used based around the parameters of our entity. Humans have different human rules than plants. They may share some basic needs but they may also have some needs that are totally different. It may be wrong to keep a human from the ability to travel their whole life but that may be okay for a plant. There's different needs.
So I think at the highest level there is no good or bad. As you work down into grouping energy into different types of levels and entities I think certain trends of right and wrong may develop for needs pertaining to those entities.
Now there's the choice aspect. Is it wrong to choose to kill someone? This is a big question. We don't know the full spiritual evolution/karma/expression that somebody is looking to take on. We don't know the non-physical agreements between 2 humans. The universe and spirits are much more about expression and expansion than they are about right and wrong. If 2 spirits agreed before incarnating here that they wanted to play out a killing drama then that is something they chose to play out. We don't fully know the complete, higher-level picture of everything and looking at things with a limited 3rd density perspective can often times be very limiting.
So I'm not so quick to make judgements on things like this myself. Yes, of course like most people I'm not in favor of killing and things like this, but I'm also not 100% set on it being wrong. I always leave a bit of room for everything to have a certain reason for happening and a reason for being favorable or at least planned at a higher level for the entities involved. I've read too many spiritual stories to think any other way. I never put 100% certainty on anything. I leave everything open to degrees, with the degrees differing based on a litany of other parts of data playing into it.
That's how I see it anyway.
After all, the universe is perfect and if things are happening within the universe then they are most likely happening to completely accurate, detailed and beautiful perfection.
I could say a lot more about this, but I would first be curious what you guys have to say on this :)Filed under: Philosophy & Psychology, Good, Bad, Right, Wrong
