I like that... evil and live. Live or Not Live. I think also, NEO has it correct. The devil is an invention of man. Mostly, man is not aware of his
capabilities outside physicalities. We are all created creatures that DO create our reality. When people have been told other idealogies on life and
accept the hand-down. That is someone else creating their REALity for them. Thus why it says, it shall be passed down even to the seventh generation.
Because teachers, parents, friends, or another individual besides yourSELF, has told you how it is. Let me give a example.
Their are five monkeys in a cage with a 5-step stairwell leading up to a banana on a string. One of the five monkeys starts walking toward the stairs
and as he gets on the first step up unto the banana, the other four monkeys are all sprayed with cold water. Immediately, they attack the one monkey
on the stairs going for the banana. Thus the cold water stops.
Now the first monkey is removed from the cage and in comes a new one, who gazes at the banana. As he is starting to climb the first stair, the other
four are sprayed again with cold water. Of course they all attack the stairwelled monkey. Out comes another monkey to replace monkey number two who
has been sprayed twice now. Again this is repeated over and over until finally all the ORIGINAL monkeys' have been replaced.
So now a new 5th monkey is put in the cage and tries to walk up to the banana, tied on a string. All four of the other monkeys rush to beat on him to
get him to stop. This time however, there is no cold water on the other four monkeys. So one monkey says, to the others, "How come you all attacked
me when I tried to go up the stairs to get the banana?" Another replied, " I don't know, that's just the way it is."
When you SEEK your OWN truth that is not filtered with other peoples truth. The Truth shall set you FREE.
When people believe they are lowly creatures, sinful, going to hell, etc. ... they ARE. Keep in mind, this does not disregard consequences for actions
here. There is always a consequence for your actions to show you if what you did, serves you or not. (in the five sense world) Learn from YOUR
mistakes and you are able to truly SEE. Taking advice from other people, automatically inserting that, without question; is what makes things,
"That's just the way things are." How can you know if you don't even try to know? I'll save this for a later day.
Ultimately, it's all comes down to ONE thing. . .
Do you feel seperate from everything or could you feel one with it all? In today's world look at all the seperation in everything. (Nations,
ethnicities, neighbors, genders, age, rich/poor, disregarding other species of life because you are better/seperate[another falsehood], and the 'big
one' or sum total... seperation because of your BELIEFS.) Why can't we say, "My way is not better, it's just merely another way."? And then look
at the neverending results' of the NOW moment. Getting the picture, the WHOLE picture? What you resist, persists. Agree to disagree and the truth can
be looked at, not tossed away in an endless cycle.
No getting back to topic, I believe in no devil. When we die, we will see that we create with thought. And instantaneously. Not like the wait we have
in the five sense world. So believe what you will, but if anything is seperated in the afterlife, it is because you WILL it. Do you understand?
