Light and dark, good and evil, love and hate etc. etc. etc. For once could someone promote this philosophy without using such two-dimensional
metaphors? Is it even possible? Why not hot and cold, up and down or north and south? If you used "up and down" then I could more easily say: "well
what about sideways?".
Do we not see the varying degrees between these two extremes you speak of? and that the impossible and vain task of destroying one of these polar
opposites will result in the destruction of the other? Can we not accept that there is something infinite in between?
In my opinion, what you strive for is death, because it's probable that there is no fear or evil there. Death is ultimate freedom or becoming "one"
with the universe. You can become light, energy or stardust through death. It's as easy as taking one's own life. Well what's stopping you? Love?
Then maybe love is the ultimate barrier on your path to "light overcoming darkness". Or maybe you don't quite trust your own convictions.
Oh, but you want to live, and in the process somehow reduce life to a 2-dimensional line in order to live at one extreme end of it—or at least to
appear to. It's an impossible task that will end in extreme disappointment. I believe people spout such irrational and regurgitated ideas to appear
pious to other pious people, nothing more. No one is breaking any philosophical ground by writing about this topic and in this manner; they're merely
displaying their own religiosity to appear "good" to others. It's called vanity.
Yelling "light and love", fighting constantly for "light and love", pushing back darkness with your own light; what the hell does this all mean
and what will it accomplish? Please. I beg of everyone, elaborate a bit further so I can understand the possibilites of leading a life of "light and
love". Is it merely to become oblivious? Why aren't we discussing the pros and cons? Where is the critique?
Life isn't like that; life isn't love or hate; life isn't light and darkness. To reduce life to such simplified terms, when it is in fact something
infinitely complex, merely shows how little we truly know about it. To promote a moral dogmatic system under the guise of trying to do good, when we
know fully well how little knowledge we hold about life, is done purely for vanities sake and shows, through one's intent to be moral, how immoral
one really is.
