Chautauqua ~ The Illusion of Good Vs Evil

This is a very astute article by Chautauaqua, more in the vein of false dichotomies and how to transcend these. IMHO, well worth the initial read and click-thru. “Each of us are the sum of our collective aspects; meaning that every human has aspects of both genders, as well as both good and evil impulses, thoughts and desires. We are then, what we choose to express as, through as many, or as few aspects as desired in the given moment.”

Thanks, G!

Chautauqua ~ The Illusion Of Good Vs Evil
Augureye Express

The secret is gradually getting out that we humans are something more than what we’ve always been led, and programmed to believe ourselves to be.

In fact, we are hardwired from birth to exist in a fabricated reality of duality and dichotomy; believing most profoundly of all, in our own powerless insignificance. To begin with we’re born into the greatest duality of them all, the one in which all others operate, the Birth-Death construct; where we’re taught to believe in self over soul and that the authority of the state is absolute.

From birth, the dualities begin to pile up fast as we are taught, and expected to “play” within their parameters even though that isn’t always possible; and that is also an intentional aspect of the programming.

Long before we can either speak or walk, we’re bombarded with the dualities which comprise our “playpen,” beginning with Yes-No, Light-Dark, Good-Bad, Right-Wrong & Truth-Deception. These core dualities are designed to instill the feeling of powerlessness into the newly arrived soul as it gets used to its new form and environment. Did you know that lab rats born in captivity never have a sense there exists any other reality for them?

Other dualities present themselves to us while still in the newly arrived category; concepts like Male-Female, Love-Hate, Joy-Grief, and Dreams-Nightmares.

There of course is the most obvious duality, the one we must deal with every day, that of the body being either Awake or Asleep. We make our way thru each day, doing what is expected of us, doing our best to navigate the increasing madness of the world while keeping our sanity intact: then fall fast asleep at days end to restore vitality in a fantasy world within our minds. What if I told you that is exactly backwards; that in fact, all your “waking” hours are but a dream state and what you experience each night is the real world.

How would you feel about that? Welcome to the world of consensus reality!

You may well be asking how any of all this makes sense; well, it makes the same kind of sense as us choosing to incarnate into a world of hate in order to remember how to love! Before we can realize our full destiny as beings of light, we must first walk in the darkness.

Before we can accept what truly unlimited beings we are, we must first experience the illusion of limitation, in this place. We don’t need self-appointed rulers or their media empire to tell us how to feel, that’s what we have a heart for. This then is where we encounter the truly thorny dualities of Wealth-Poverty, Liberty-Tyranny and Good-Evil which have such a stranglehold on this planet today.

Interrelationship
By Thich Nhat Hanh
(1929 – )

You are me, and I am you.
Isn’t it obvious that we “inter-are”?
You cultivate the flower in yourself,
so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself,
so that you will not have to suffer.

I support you;
you support me.
I am in this world to offer you peace;
you are in this world to bring me joy.
