Well I wish I had seen this thread before I started one.
I think the soul is always evolving through all different phases. I am of the belief we are all one. I there for think we must experience it All, to
Know All. One must be the bird, the tree, the cat, the rock the bug, the fish, the wind, etc.
To me this also includes being the bad guy. With that thought I would like to present this to you.
So I guess you might be asking yourself what the heck is this going to be about. Or maybe you aren't, but you are here now so we might as well
Let us take all the new age rs, and those focused on um, let's say those trying to follow the path of enlightenment. Lets also take the folks that
believe in the fact, or thought, that we are all one.
I wish to present a question.
If one comes into this life time and they have a choice to be positive or negative, or they have a Karma contract to fulfill, or a learning experience
to fulfill, and all is one, shouldn't the negative choice have as much impact as the positive one?
Let me try and break down this thought a bit. We are all one. One must experience "All," to be, or reach, lets say fulfillment. I'm guessing we all
need to be the flower, the cat, the rock, the tree, the ocean, the wind, etc., somewhere down the line.
Now, let us take a murderer. They kill a family. To any "sane" person, that is the most horrible thing to contemplate. But, what is the ripple
effect of that action? What happens positive from the negative?
Let us take John Walsh
for a example. This is a man that had his child murdered. This is Also a man
that Now host the American show, Americas Most Wanted. He is also a strong advocate against child abuse, etc. Would this man be doing this if a
"Negative" hadn't of happened in his life? Or, would he still just be sitting home watching TV and eating ice cream with his child? How many lives
has he now touched and saved or helped because of his new position created from the Negative? Did a Negative create a Positive? For every action,
there is a reaction?
OK, so now I know, or think, we will have the folks going, " But it is ones decision to be good or bad.' it is the choice you make."
Well, what if, in order to experience it "All," and to "Know" all one must learn what it is they "Don't" want. A young soul just starting out.
Let's say first time out of the box. One must know to be a "Killer," to know what it is to be "Murdered." Does one then understand "Both"
sides? Can one then" Move On" to make a choice? Is that when the Enlightened Light goes on? A flicker of it at least? This is just one aspect of
I would like to think I have evolved a bit. I'm pretty sure I wouldn't respond to a lot of questions the same as I would have when I was 12, 22, or
34. Is that really any different then in a different time frame or lifetime of soul learning?
Perhaps a "Old Soul" might even just sign up for another lifetime to perform a ugly task, just for the ripple effect it may cause. A duty to create
something not apparent at the time,but for the better good in the big picture? Was it really "Negative?" Or, did that old soul know the Negative
would create a far more Positive in the Big Picture? At least equal?
I'm sorry I may seem to be rambling here, but I just think, to be fair, if all is Equal, then the negative deserves it's " Just" as well.
Positive people always talk about how the negative people bring them down and ruin their day... Well shouldn't that be the same, if all is equal in
the realm of things,, that the Positive people can ruin the Negative persons day too?
I am not condoning negative, but I do think it Has to have its place. Someone can try to be negative around me, I can be just as positive, it is still
my choice to reflect on them my own wisdom or enlightenment. Some days the negatives win with me and do get me down, but, the important things is, how
I come out of it, and that is where I evolve. Another lesson learned, Thanks to the Negative.
Perhaps we are too hard on our most obvious lessons....
Step by step we learn.I don't believe any soul is condemned, but is here to play its vital part in the big picture.
So yes, I also do think animals, trees, rocks, etc. all have a "Soul." It "Is" what it "Is."
I think way to many people just don't see the Big Picture... This is just my humble opinion of course
Nice thread btw
