allow me to show you why I believe properly placed ignorance can benefit the soul.
for those who have a heightened awareness....To choose to be ignorant towards the pains that follows with Life is to not be weighted down with those negatives,to not focus on the bad happening because your choosing to be ignorant towards its happening,and with that the opportunity to move ahead/beyond those things.
..Life is pain,to be alive,is to suffer to some degree.
There is no way of knowing whether or not a significant role has been placed upon any of us,I feel we just need the comfort in knowing our existence in Life is significant,because it would be too painful to believe we are only here to experience pain and suffering ,or at least thats just a thought.
Any understanding we can come up with I feel,is pointless,that is unless you wish to be bound here.
People wonder why God doesn't intervene with Earthly situations,I think its because emotions we feel and have,God doesn't or at least is beyond those emotions...situations and problems in Life matter not.
As for light,Love,and oneness,I feel if you choose to become apart of that you are denying your own existence the opportunity to grow,as you are designating yourself with a path already paved out for you instead of creating your own.
I seek not to be apart of the "Oneness" but to metaphorically be the apple that drops from the tree to become its own tree..not accepting myself as a leaf,or branch,apart of the one.
Whatever understanding we can come up with is nothing until we know Truth.
We Know Nothing.
Truth will be revealed in Death.
Until then,all we can do is speculate and guess and go down the path that merely "feels right"
I appreciate your words and thoughts Greenelight,I love the opportunity to share thoughts with like minds,as they are so rare to come across in Life.
