The tree of knowledge of good and evil. Everything swings and is dualistic in nature. Some would call this the mirror simulation theory and if Einstein is correct this would mean that everything vibrates and moves on a continuum. Add onto this the dualistic nature that everything swings on a pendulum, with negativity on one side and positivity on the other and life moves in a continuous manner, swinging up or down, in or out, along the same vibration we call TIME!
What is good and what is evil is open to suggestion and analysed by personal perception.
The lower ego and the upper ego.
One serves the seven sins and the other serves seven virtues! Duality gives us the rules to ‘the game’. We either love a clean and healthy existence, respecting everything and everyone or we’re out for ourselves! We either want to contribute to the world or we want to run it?
A narcissistic personality is one that wants and demands domination! An empath is the polar opposite. The hour glass is balanced with the two opposite concepts – good and evil apply in the same manner.
An old Cherokee is teaching his grandson about life.
“A fight is going on inside me,” he said to the boy.
“It is a terrible fight and it is between two wolves. One is evil – he is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.” He continued, “The other is good – he is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion, and faith. The same fight is going on inside you – and inside every other person, too.”
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf will win?”
The old Cherokee simply replied, “The one you feed.”
The trick is to get the wolf within to lie with the lamb within!!
The same concept applies to lower ‘negative’ thinking patterns against higher more benevolent ‘grateful’ thinking patterns.
When we love from a lower ego base level we believe in our own omnipotence, self righteousness and power, feeding an ego. A disease of narcissism starts to take hold of the ego and this is where we live – in the lower ego. Whereas the higher ego serves others, the higher ego or what I call heart centred action.
Just as the Cherokee teaches his grandson – One obeys a more ‘sinful’, maleficent nature and the other obeys a benevolent, higher nature. We make this choice ourselves.
The mirrored universe is within and without. This is why we have relationships with others. So that we can see ourselves and understand where we need healing. In all our interactions there is the mirror of good and evil. In every judgement we make, we are exposing ourselves to an aspect that needs healing within or we are offering this healing to our mirror before us.
Everything is balanced. The tree of knowledge stands before us, within us and is seen outside of us. Be humble enough to know your not any better than anyone else, but wise enough to know you’re different from everyone else! e proud of your story, your scars and those embarrassing moments, they all made you into the character you are today.
Stronger for the challenges, wiser for learning what they taught you and humbled through the grace of god for overcoming those challenging times.
Everything is a mixture of truth and lies, both of which dwell in the soul. The problem is that we prefer lies because it doesn’t hurt whereas and truths are repelled, attacked and condemned, because sometimes the truth hurts?
Once you find the inner calm, the balance of truth and lies, of good and evil – the tree of knowledge is revealed.
Basically this means science, philosophy and religion has the potential to cause sin and delusions. Because everyone is open to interpretation and perception. No two perspectives are the same. One mans treasure is another mans treat, the world is a balance of good and evil. Everything has its polar opposite, what makes the biggest difference is INTENTION!
This is Duality – and Duality is the tree of good and evil! We create our own heaven or our own hell, it’s all our choice.
Humility is to understand the word of god, spirit or universe within. This is without exception and is a universal truth, we are not perfect we are made in gods image, this doesn’t mean we are GODS. Nobody is superior and nobody is inferior. We must respect and honour everybody, as hierarchy is the curse of the lower ego. We are equal and also different.
Equality amongst men of all creeds is the honour of god.
We are all children of the same GOD or Source (whichever resonates with you best). No religion or science can conclude to this truth – it’s something we must all discover, for ourselves. God is within and God is without, as above so below, like attracts like. Find yourself and you will discover god, and when you discover and find god, that is when you will find yourself.
Who are we? Where did we come from and why are we here? These questions are not addressed in schools or academic institutions and nobody questions or asks why.
We are a child of light and each of us was sent into this world to be perfected in love and when it ends, we will all return to the father or creator.
Life is a playground, a pantomime or a tragedy, perspective informs how we understand our story. Our journey is an adventure and a never ending story, we all have our own drama and scripts to play out which create our character and personality.
We came here to discover, to create and to cooperate. The world is full of colourful characters, who all have something to teach us about ourselves.
Imagine the earth is your body, the trees are your lungs that absorb oxygen, the wind is your breathe and the sun is the fire that lights the soul, the ocean is the water that runs through your body, the clouds are the doubts and worries of your mind and the stars are neurons that fire the brain.
We are the universe and the universe is within each of us. We are not in control of this world, our ourselves. We are merely learning to control ourselves.
