The bad thing about goodness is that there is no free-will to choose the opposite, and therefore there is no drama, there is no excitement, there is no opportunity to grow and learn anything. You will just be doing good things, but the lessons will not be learned as to "WHY".

The good thing about badness is that it is the drama of life. It gives you contrast. It allows you to be an individual because when you know what you do not like, you can more easily discover what you prefer.

Everything is energy, energy has it's positive and negative polarity, and yet, this energy is whole without the need of breaking anything into "two". Zooming all the way in, there is nothing, darkness, emptiness. Zooming all the way out, you see that everything is ONE, as pure white light. All contrast is in between.

Loving yourself allows you to accept this reality - fact, and it allows an openness to see others as beautiful expressions of nature as well.

Ironically, even though you are embracing yourself and loving yourself fully, it will still cause you to have more "light" than "darkness" so I guess even though there is balance, it is slightly more light than dark.

By loving yourself, there is no need to devalue or pick on others. There is no need to keep others dependent on you as slaves and instead empower them letting them do their own thing instead of you controlling them.



All is energy.

Energy is life/love/appreciation

Energy sustains itself by loving itself (even as it is expressed through other beings)

Energy changes but never dies

The labelling of 'good' and 'bad' just happen.
How can one love oneself, surely that makes two?
All that can be done is to realize that there is only this one and then look to see if there is anyone home.

This is the video i refer to:
Who is doing this?

Everything is energy. We found out that space is also a form of energy and darkness is just low light. No real such thing as emptiness, nothingness.


All is energy being aware of itself from different perspectives:

Nothingness?

So the 'we' that found out that space is a form of energy - is energy. Energy realized that it is all there is and it is doing all of it.

Or to quote Bill Hicks:

"Today a young man on acid realized that all matter is merely energy condensed to a slow vibration, that we are all one consciousness experiencing itself subjectively, there is no such thing as death, life is only a dream, and we are the imagination of ourselves. Heres Tom with the Weather.”

The poet, Chinua Achebe, caught the idea quite well in Vultures.


Praise bounteous
providence if you will
that grants even an ogre
a tiny glow-worm
tenderness encapsulated
in icy caverns of a cruel
heart or else despair
for in the very germ
of that kindred love is
lodged the perpetuity
of evil.

Yes, or as you say: it is "THIS" being aware of itself.

So what to do????
It is done.

What needs doing? And by who?
It is happening. Energy is moving.

It is about the loving the experience - loving the consciousness perceiving and this body - instead of devaluing.

The experience can only be loved by 'something other' and there is only this one (the one energy).
There is not 'someone' loving 'something', this is where it all goes wrong (this is duality), because if there is an ability (a doing) to love, there will be the ability to not love (know opposite). When a 'knower' appears, it is what separates the all into what appears to be twoness, or more than oneness.

When the one is found to be the 'only one' it finds that it is love. All appearances appear within it and are made of itself.
The pure buzzing energy that is not contracted feels delightful (love). Feels like heaven because there is nothing wrong and feels divine. It feels whole and complete and boundless.
When the energy is contracted it feels awful (fear/anxiety). Feels like Hell. It feels like something is wrong.

Contracted and not contract, and yet it is not duality because it is all ONE energy. True nature is allowing oneself to flow and be expressed, loving oneself. The awareness flowing through this body.

The pure ocean of energy is aware of it's movement and colour, it's texture.
It sees itself in all it's glory.
Amazing grace.

We all have the potential be be anything and everything, limited only by the reality around us and the imagination within.

Good and Bad are merely descriptions of two extremes, between the two there is no Line, but just a space filled with bits of both.

And you are absolutely right, energy is everything and it has a natural flow to it. The flow is always changing, sometimes in nice calm waves and sometimes in sudden violent explosions.

I always enjoy your threads arpgme, thanks.

Loving yourself allows you to accept this reality - fact, and it allows an openness to see others as beautiful expressions of nature as well.

Ironically, even though you are embracing yourself and loving yourself fully, it will still cause you to have more "light" than "darkness" so I guess even though there is balance, it is slightly more light than dark.


Loving yourself does not include your neighbour, because by it's very definition "loving self" is the height of selfishness which can be extremely detrimental to your neighbour. For instance, if you believe that your subconscious is "divinity", your "higher self", that subconscious will deceive you to accept that it's desires should be able to be fullfilled. So, if your subconscious secretly yearns to have sex with your neighbour who is a five year old, your subconscious certainly will do all that it can to convince you that it's not really a detrimental and hurtful thing to that child, your neighbour. This same analogy can be applied to all desires, whether or not they are good or evil.

So what your philosophy does is throw out "love your neighbour AS yourself" in favor of "Do what thou Wilst and to hell with it's impact on your neighbour". In which case, your philosophy will actually cause you to have more darkness than light because as the world shows us everyday, "men's hearts are evil". Mankind wants physical pleasure, heathenism and paganism, and it's senses pleased. In which case, giving oneself free-reign to do every sort of sensual pleasure that comes to mind kills the babies which are produced through the free sex, psychologically scars the kids abducted to be molested, enslaves the women to prostitution and porn, murders the innocent as rage explodes and condemns millions to addiction on drugs.

Does it produce any good? Not that I see except for the false notion of "god hood" that is deceiving so many today as prophecied in scripture.

We should be careful when we say 'all is energy.' Some may get the wrong idea.

Energy is not a substance any more than "mass" or "volume" are substances. Nothing can be made of mass or volume.

Saying everything is energy sort of distorts mass-energy equivalence. The technical term energy is a mathematical concept for the ability to do work, it is power, not a substance that composes things, and it often gets confused with the other use of energy, ie. heat, electricity, light etc.

I mean it's true in a sense, but often misunderstood.

Physics Classroom - Energy, work, power.

If you loved yourself, you would know that you are whole. No feeling of "longing/yearning".

Good and evil was explained in the original post.

You are either being very deceptive, or reacting to emotion. No where did I talk about "will" or "action". Nor did I talk about any emotion (whether positive OR negative) for your neighbor.

I simply talked about loving yourself.

They are so-called "good" and "evil", did you not read the original post? And if you don't agree with then at least show where the logic is flawed.

All of that makes sense, except for paganism. Is that the religion where they have many gods and do rituals? That stuff is learned, not natural desires.

There is no "production" of Godhood. We are already gods.

You believe in the bible, right?



John 10:34
"Jesus answered them, Is it not written in your law, I said, Ye are gods?"


This is a reference to this:


Psalms 82:6
I have said, Ye are gods; and all of you are children of the most High.



There is no "godhood" to achieve. We are already gods and we are children of "The Most High" (The SOURCE of all creation).

How dare you show such ignorance and speak for "mankind". Your stereotying is blatently indicative of someone with an axe to grind. Your views on being a neighbour really say a lot, that's just messed up.

You have one opinion and it is yours and yours alone, and from what I read it is not worth considering sensibly. There are 7 billion other opinions out there and I rather doubt the majority of them are the same or similar to yours.

sheesh! You probably think you are a good person, but right here is your nemesis and proof of our OP's writings.

And btw...how can loving one's self be the height of selfishness? If one is to spread something good, one has to know what it is by recognition and experience and be in a position to give it. When one ca,n love one's self, one can generate excess energy and give it freely. People who hate themselves cannot easily love another except for need and attention which is the wrong reason and is the stuff of delusion.
