To fully understand what I am saying here, I ask that you read with an open mind. I am not asking that you change the way that you think or perceive things. But, without the will to look at things differently, the message here will never be fully seen.
There is no such thing as cold. We cannot measure cold. We measure temperature. This tells us how much heat there is. Once we have reach zero amount of heat, we cannot get colder. However, we can infinitively get hotter. The more energy we have the hotter it can be. The same can be said about darkness. There is no such thing as darkness. We measure lumens. Once that value reaches zero, we cannot get darker. Good and Bad fall under the same principles. There is no such thing as bad in this world, there is only the absence of good. Good is positive energy. From the time a person is born, they radiate positive energy. Some radiate more than others. In every situation there is good. We just have to be in the mindset to find it.
I struggled with this concept for a long time. If there is no such thing as bad, then why do bad things happen? Why do bad people exist? The best way that I can try to explain it is like this. An ice cube is not hot, but it does have some level of heat. A room may not be illuminated enough for us to see, but there is enough light for nocturnal animals to see. These “bad” people or “bad” situations are not bad. They have a level of good that we cannot sense. The more we are tuned into looking for good, the more we will be able to see it. Have you ever been in a “bad” situation and tried getting sympathy from an elder only to have them laugh at you? They have already been there done that, and know the good lesson you will learn from it. Some of these “bad” situations make us better people. If they make us better people, are they bad? I implore you to look at things differently. Slow down and take the time to look around. Everything will sort itself out if we stop shaking things up. There is no such thing as bad. There is only good. The measurement of good is infinite. So that brings up a question. How much good are we able to produce?
This read may bring up a lot of rebuttals, and that is fine. I believe in questioning everything. It’s how I came to this mindset. It’s how I learned to approach everything. Faith is beautiful thing. Question your faith so that it may be solidified when others question it.
Thanks for taking time to read this, and may we always produce an immeasurable amount of good.
