Being bad is okay, so why be good?
QUESTION: Masters if our world is a stage where we can play a good or evil person, be a victim or perpetrator etc. then is there a point to being good, kind, and loving if others can do evil acts and it’s ok, no judgement. I strive to grow more loving, kind, and compassionate believing it’s for my soul’s growth but if it does not matter what’s the point. How do we progress if evil is not wrong and if I am cruel it’s fine. I get we need to experience opposite emotions such as good or evil, pain and suffering, or its opposite, freedom or incarceration, – different scenarios and emotions to understand both sides and to appreciate bliss, but in all this how do we progress if we have no boundaries? If love is as ok as hate, cruelty as acceptable as kindness. I don’t get that. How this fits with a soul’s growth. ~Sue, South Africa
ANSWER: Every soul who is choosing to have a human experience creates their own reality. You had previously chosen the tasks you wished to explore by way of lessons, including family members, locale, and societal influences. Learning is accomplished by dealing with life situations, using your freedom of choice to select either experiencing the negativity-imbued circumstances only present on planet Earth, or creating a world of unconditionally loving positive influences that mimic the realm of Source – and of your soul when not in physical form.
The purpose for souls’ coming into a body is to see if they can remember who they are as souls. They try to bring their essence of unconditional love into their human existence. You are trying to do this. The only way souls can completely reach this state while still in a physical shape is to divest themselves of all vestiges of ego judgment. By focusing on what others do, you are continuing to judge their journey and giving it a degree of importance in your human learning and experience.
Each soul’s journey is an individual experience, and the only things you should concern yourself with are your own path and decisions. In former lives you have chosen the negative (evil) process, but this time you choose to bring out your inner essence of unconditional love – the positive direction or concentration.
You never have to like what other people sharing the planet with you are undertaking, but your spiritual growth must include accepting that they have the right to live as they have chosen. You have freedom of choice to blend the life you desired – a positive physical one – with ego-influenced judgment, but you must be aware that this hinders you from reaching unconditional love. The choice and direction in this lifetime are yours.
