I guess it depends on your interpretation and perspective on what constitutes 'success' in one's life. Surely, it is no fallacy to suggest that there
is actually is no "right or wrong"; there is only the consequences of your actions. The Universe operates under this Law, and surely whatever it was
that created the Universe cannot judge you for experiencing the Universe's neutral energy reacting to your decisions!
That's why the universe was invented by Us, after all. To experience. The good, the bad and the ugly - all in one giant, meaningless-yet-purposeful,
epic, infinite show that never ends and yet began in a place where Time doesn't even really exist in the first place anywhere besides our 'experience'
of it (an experience which is a conjured illusion of the Soul) - a show in which you're the only actor! ..well, in your own
experience of it,
anyway... which is really just my
experience being had by you
! "We" are One. Think about it. Whatever is being you is being everything,
else nothing could be
Therefore, in my uneducated opinion, the "good" only suffer because they're 'unsuccessful' at what they're striving for in life. The bad (or "evil")
to prosper because they're successful
in the same respect. But just like the unsuccessful "good" person, I highly doubt the
successful "bad" person is truly and genuinely happy
. Content, maybe. Rich, probably. But not happy, and not at peace with themselves
And that's a fantastically important discrepancy to make.
The only difference between good and evil is that a "good" person sees themselves as 'succeeding' when they're healthy and happy and full of joy and
love and are participating in the universe's smooth & peaceful flow of symbiotic servitude (of course there are many exceptions to this description of
"good" since "good" is purely a human-invented philosophical dichotomy that God simply does not care for. All Source cares about is what you care
about. Therefore, "good" is only what you decide it is to You
... just like success is (or the supposed lack thereof. I tell you now, the
feeling of success (and failure) is all an illusion anyway! In truth, all one needs to do to "succeed" in the eyes of the Universe is to merely exist.
That's all that's expected of you by the cosmic forces you breathe). "Bad" people, on the other hand, tend to only care for and about themselves. And
so what? You're me. So, for this reason, I forgive you! As does the Universe. But can you forgive yourself
? Because in the end, that's all that
really matters. That's
the true measure of Success - at least, the only kind that truly matters in this life and
Do whatever you want to my friend. You're not "evil". Selfish, maybe, but aren't all things selfish? What else is there but for self?
Personally I've outgrown my need to entertain or satisfy myself. I'm more interested in helping others find their own peace. So I would consider
myself "unsuccessful" if I were to lie and cheat and steal and manipulate my way through my fleeting lifetime on this planet. What a tragic waste of
but hey, it's yours to waste! It's a free gift, so you're free to do whatever you like with it. Just know that there are
consequences. For EVERYTHING.
EVERYTHING. There is an equal and opposite reaction to every action. Literally. This is not debatable, opinion, or theory. This is fact. So bare that
in mind! If you bring suffering unto others, then surely suffering will find its way into your soul experience in one way or another. There is no Hell
besides the Hell we create for ourselves. And we all do a very good job of that by lying and cheating and stealing and abusing each other.
So be cautious! But most importantly, be true. If you feel that your decisions are the right thing for your journey on this planet, then put your most
into it! Embrace your renegade anti-cooperative approach to existence and enjoy it to the fullest. But KNOW that you will reimburse the universe for
the energy you vampired in one way or another whether you believe in God or Fairies or Xenu or Nothing At All.
It's not punishment. It's not judgement. It's not even education. It's simply equilateral justice. So judge your success by your regrets (more
specifically the lack thereof); not by your achievements! What a grand mistake it is to judge one's success by one's ease of living. The ability to
weasel one's way through this frantic energetic kaleidoscope we call Life by vampiring off the experiential energy of others does not make one
"successful". It makes you a darkworker (or more simply, a dick), which is of course fine in the eyes of the All! But is it really what you wanna
remember yourself for when you move on from this life? That's the only question that matters. If you can say yes to that answer, then carry on my
If not... then the rest is on you, as it always has been, and as it always will be.
So make a change in your behavior. Or don't. Either way, it
matters not! And that's the beauty of life. You
get to decide what it's for.
In any case, I wish you the best in your life's endeavors, whether they create misery among your fellow man or create joy & happiness. Both
experiences are valid, and neither of them are wrong. Keep up the good work brother. Be truly & nakedly honest to yourself at all times and you owe
nothing to anyone or anything!
Please meditate on this. It's very important for you & the rest of you (aka. "us") that you do so!
