Some say we experience “contrast” so that we know which direction to go towards. We have to know and understand “bad” to really know where “good” is. Some say we are here to experience that full range of emotions and then learn from those experiences in order to evolve.
I cannot speak about mental disorders, nor is this about morality. I am just thinking about our dualistic nature and where it is going from here.
Good bad right wrong, black white. The spectrum of gray is uncomfortable but is also kinda of unifying. Like agreeing to disagree is still agreeing.
I know there are 1000s of topics, if not millions, where the gray area is not acceptable and it is possible that I am not speaking about this properly. But I just have an optimistic view that we as a people are evolving and that appreciation of others is happening.
I feel like things are being shaken up a lot lately causing our perspectives to widen. The old ways of thinking, the old regime, the dominant paradigm is hanging on for dear life. They are flexing with all their might and abusing whatever power they have left because they are sensing their days are numbered.
Really they are just providing more contrast which is waking up all these new found voices. A new system to accommodate all these voices will become the new reality of unification.
On the spiritual side of things, when we talk about “enlightenment” or “illumination” we are talking about Christ Consciousness or Buddha Consciousness or Krishna Consciousness or whatever you want, which is in basic essence, the service to others. As opposed to Luciferian Consciousness which is the service to self.
We can’t help anyone until we can help ourselves. This is why when your airplane is about to crash, they tell you to put on your oxygen mask first before you try to save your kid or whoever.
I am saying that through contrast we learned how to service ourselves, take care of ourselves, survive and figure out what we like and don’t like.
Through unity, we will learn service to others and enlightenment as a group. We are on the precipice on an epic new era. What a time to be alive.
