Light and dark is a duality born from the duality of self and other.
The ego of self; desires balance and fairness, the ego consciousness declares itself as just and fair. When the ego of self sees unbalance in nature,
it creates unfairness between self and other, just and unjust, good and evil, light and dark. This self supported creation of dualistic delusion; sees
suffering, creates suffering, supports suffering.
In the same way, if someone identifies with being an American, then they will self identify with all the problems and sufferings facing America.
Similarly if someone identifies with being Australian then they will identify the problems and sufferings of Australia as theirs as well.
Now we have two separate individuals; they both started out a just simply human exactly the same. Now they have different nationalities, and face all
the issues in regard to their respective nationalities. This dualism of nationality we just created has separated these two individuals, not only by
continent by by beliefs and problems associated with the nations. If the American and Australian are both starving and a Canadian feeds the American
and not the Australian, then the balance of fairness has tipped. The Australian is still starving while now the American thanks to the Canadian is no
If the Canadian does not also feed the Australian; then the Australian will see the Canadian as evil. The American will defend the Canadian and say
the Canadian is not evil they are good, I am no longer starving. The Australian still disagrees. The Canadian says I would feed you too; but I have no
boat or airplane and neither does the American. The Australian says I have boats and planes! The Canadian says well, come here and I'll feed you. So
the Australian goes and gets fed, no longer hungry and the Canadian no longer evil.
Light and dark...is just another illusion. The Canadian was never evil nor were they ever good; they just offered what they had available in both
cases. Did they have to offer? No. Would they be evil if they didn't offer to either? No.
To both the Canadian and the American hunger was the poison making them both suffer. In much the same way as hunger is an individual problem so is
everything else; we share all of the same basic problems as a living being, but light and dark are an individual duality we see with a self. There is
no inherent good or inherent evil within or without; they are mere projections of a dualistic nature of an identified self, that usually seeks balance
everywhere else but within.
If you ingest poison and the cure is to vomit it out; are you going to instead eat more of it, instead try to find out why it had poison, instead
blame poison for being poison in the first place, instead regret eating the poison, instead blame another for the poison...or simply vomit it out?
Light and dark, good and evil...trying to find a cure for the poison by looking anywhere except from within will leave yourself long dead from the
When you get the urge to point the finger at someone else for the poison; turn the finger back around on yourself...because you're the one creating
the enemy by projecting illusions.
A good example of projecting. Islam was once a very peaceful religion on a whole; they had the concept of Jihad then too. Over time factions split and
now Islam is looked at as an evil repressive religion. So what has changed? Jihad was a holy war that was meant to take place within ones own self;
Jihad since then has been instead turned outward and projected on things not the self. There is still an exit in that path; but illusion has covered
it up. The same goes for many exits in many religions; the self created by duality is the real enemy, and what perpetuates all suffering.
Childish? Idealism? is only a finger pointing at another instead of the exit.
