Good vs Evil. Who is stronger?

Individuals who are brought up in a religious environment, tend to believe that the force of good is stronger than the force of evil. But in reality; both the forces live in equilibrium. Good must exist so that evil will have a meaning. So are light and darkness.

But! In the end, it is the way you perceive life. If you surround your self with the negative things about life, you will be on the side of darkness, but if you live in serenity and believe that life is beautiful; you will see that the force of good is stronger than the force of evil.

In this world, there are people who are very kind and thoughtful, and at the same time there exist thieves and murderers.

But how do we know who is good and who is bad?

Good people are those who wouldn’t do to others what they wouldnt do to themselves. Bad people are those who would do to others what they wouldnt do to themselves.

That, is the foundation of the understanding of good and evil.

Knowing man, it is impossible to find a single individual who is perfect. We are all interconnected. A quality which is missing in me; can be found in another human, and a quality that is missing in another human; can be found in me, we together; become perfect, we individually; are imperfect.

Are the rich evil or good?

Again it depends on the activity in which this rich individual is involved in.

There are rich families who own public hospitals, they own organizations that only bring a deficit to their own accounts, non-profit. At the same time, there exist powerful and rich people who only destroy communities and indulge in mass murders, in order to achieve their own desires.

On which side shall I be on?

You shouldn’t have asked this question. 🙂

Things you need to know about life.

Life is a lot more complicated than you think it is.

Truth always prevails

Lying will get you no where, sooner or later your lie will come chasing after you and bite you in the butt.

Have an open mind, your thoughts are not absolute

Too often people think that their own beliefs are absolute truth, the best example of this can be found with religious extremists, they talk as if they have the Archangel’s phone number on speed dial, they ignore the fact that their beliefs are stemmed from years of conditioning and prejudice, same goes for those who only believe in science, just because some theory has been proven lately that doesn’t mean that it is the absolute truth, scientific theory can be disproved any second, did you know that in the black hole; all laws of physics are irrelevant?

The point is that whatever we believe now, can be changed instantly with a single moment of epiphany, or what we call – a paradigm shift. Therefore we must have an open mind and respect other beliefs, cultures and traditions. What works for others might not work for you and vice versa.

Love is most powerful, love always prevails

Love brings miracles, if you want to pursue someone to do something for you, do it by using the power of love, and not by using the power of fear.

Throughout history, power has been achieved by the abuse of people’s weaknesses – Fear.

Now, we are in the age of thought, and people are starting to realize that higher output can be attained by working on people’s strengths rather than working on their weaknesses. In the future, people shall be ruled by love. 

In the past, or today as well; people are ruled by using the power of fear, an example; if a child stays outside the house until late hours, he is to be punished, in the future the child will know that if he stays outside for late hours; he is hurting his parents, therefore he will not stay out for late hours because of his love and respect for his parents. Similarly the behavior of the citizens will change, they will abide by the law because of their love for the community and their love for each other, they will not abide by the law just for the sake of being afraid of punishment.

Co-operation, no man can reach great heights without the aid of great people.

Learn to co-operate with people, know that every fault you find in people is a fault in you. Learn to accept people and set your emotions aside, with time, you will find that everybody is simply perfect.

Always go for win/win. 

If you bring the best out of people, they will in turn bring the best out of you.

Life can be unfair, get used to it, you either change it or leave it.

You often ask, why does this guy get to be the ruler of my country, while I am some clerk in some low class company? Well there is a quote that says “The universe is like a shop, you can buy anything you want as long as you are willing to pay the price” You can achieve what your heart desires, the question is; do you really want that thing or its just a mere wish?

Blaming yourself is better than blaming others.

I often find people blaming their misfortunes on other people or on circumstances. The Quran says; God gives tasks to a soul according to it’s capacity. (لَا يُكَلِّفُ اللَّهُ نَفْسًا إِلَّا وُسْعَهَا  Surat Al – Baqarah 2:286, this is not the literal translation but it is the closest it can get to it’s meaning) Therefore if you are not strong enough to take blame for your misfortunes, then you can not proceed and develop to a higher level of consciousness and being.

I found that blaming myself for my misfortunes is a lot better than blaming others, because when I blame myself, I find that I learn and develop a lot more, also the specific misfortune is less likely to happen again. But when I blame others, the same misfortunes happen over and over again.

Therefore take blame and increase your capacity of consciousness.

Everything happens for your own good

Men are not troubled by problems, they are troubled by the way they look at their problems. 

It is up to you to decide whether the glass of water is half empty or half full.
