It is clear that many beings further down the enlightened path do not venture into the lower astral regions because there are real dangers in doing so, no matter how much love or selflessness any given being may possess. This is why others on behalf of higher beings venture into the lower regions to do missionary work while they are still in a physical body, as it reduces the amount of involvement. This proves that it is not all just about love and connectedness no matter how much a single omnipotent being wishes it to be so. It’s about the infinite gradations of being, between good and evil, negative forces and positive ones, and so forth as it creates and sustains the different astral planes, dimensions, hell like places and heavens. In my view love did not exist without first knowing that evil existed.Fairyana wrote:Enlightened beings, angels, saints, etc, etc, and God have a bigger manifestation of love, of selflessness, they are further away from "ego". The entity or person that accepts worship is automatically accepting themselves in a level of higher importance, of more ego, which is contrary to the idea that we are all part of a whole, we are connected and we are love.
How can the complexities of the human psychology even being to realize what love really means without something else to differentiate it with? In the same way we know that the color yellow is nice and bright, but only after comparing it to black. It becomes evident that it’s not all about “love”, as love is simply a beautifully radiant color or state from the color wheel. If it was all about “connectedness”, there wouldn’t be demonic forces working vigilantly to destroy it. If negative and destructive forces did not exist there would be no available path of righteousness. There would be no angels and no demons either. Things would be in stasis and evolution could not be possible. In the process of embracing positive energies we can get closer to understanding the cosmos and our best place within it. In the astral dimensions this is all we get.
We are not required to “love” our torturous masters unconditionally, so it cannot all be about love because this has never prevented evil from collapsing things to shit. We are required to ACT, that is to say: to distinguish between good and evil and to help others be able to distinguish it themselves as we all make our choices. It sounds elementary; however there is so much ignorance about good and evil and its infinite expressions that many lower astral beings do not know why they have to experience suffering after death, the main reason being that they did not know what went on in their physical earth, spiritually speaking, because their psychic state or dimension became a reflection of its achieved inconsistency as a whole.
I would be nice if everyone loved as one: wearing the same color clothing, thinking and speaking loving things, it could be a heaven for everyone indeed? However new spirits that where secluded and protected, as they come in to close proximity with impurity or evil, not having experience with it, would very quickly become the fallen angels themselves. Is this what happened? Can it all be about love? Maybe if we push away from evil; by using a higher force against a lower force, and then a lower force becomes important as a rite of passage into a higher state. So I would say: “It’s all about good and evil and its distinctions”.
Fairyana, I’m not saying that you agree or disagree. I’m just stating my view. And please don’t take this as a type of lecture. I just don’t have to writing flexibility to express my views without sounding like it. need to read more fiction. I understand “ego” to mean self-identity. Meaning that if there is no ego or sense of identity there is no sense of self, at which case the spirit expands into “oneness”. This might seem sexy for those that feel better than everyone else. So I think true enlightened beings would rather assist others using a sense of identity, a sense of “I’m”, temporary, than to feel themselves expand into oneness permanently. This could be a reason why some enlightened beings return after long or short periods. But in my current view, and it keeps changing, enlightenment into oneness is a temporary influx of the spirit, and by no means the final resting place. If by the word “ego” the word “pride”, is meant instead, then we would also have to consider the many other destructive states that we can identify with, such as: pride, jealousy, desire, ignorance, greed, and ager.
The main reason for this post is because I have seen beings in the astral dimensions that intellectually conceptualize and can intuitively feel something needs to change, however, achieving the “state of readiness”, or the moment when change is actually possible, and to transcend into a higher plane of being as a result, is something totally different. Knowing that love is everything can be as meaningful as an unread book. As a community, our entire world might need to collapse around us before we value love or the true meaning of love more than material things. I do not like to focus the “oneness” rap, because I have too much work to do regarding my unflattering evil like energies that I cannot un-imaginary rejoice yet.
