No resonance with spiritual priciples

QUESTION: Masters this is a very important question that came to mind. How can you say there is no good or bad? How about karma? I believe in it. All my life is based on doing good deeds that the world would be ”better place”. So, is it useless? Why do I feel happiness and love, if they don’t matter after all? I would like to have a good life with a positive result in the end, and I feel the world needs more laughter and joy. But why should I actually bother? Why shouldn’t I start to live in a selfish way and take benefits only for myself? It doesn’t resonate with me at all that there is no good or bad. ~Reetta, Finland

ANSWER: We said that there is no good or bad in a spiritual sense, which is the world of your nonphysical energetic essence. On planet Earth, which was created as a duality of negative and positive, there is very definitely a good and bad.

Karma is a concept derived from religious practices that dictates the punishment that will arise from a person’s actions if not in compliance with the religions tenets. Everyone creates their own realities, and within yours, the Karma concept has a presence. That does not mean that it is universally accepted or a standalone belief.

Every soul is on their own unique journey. They are not dependent for spiritual growth and understanding on any other person. They have no responsibility to try to assist anyone else. No one can make another do anything they do not choose to do, so it is impossible to make the world a better place unless the rest of the world cooperates.

A great deal of the love you feel is self-love because you believe in what you are doing and accept that it is by your choice and not mandated by another. Love of self is a necessary step to enlightenment and connection with your essential Source energy. Nothing feels as good as that.

If the world’s people engaged in more laughter and joy, they would find themselves pulling away from negativity and approaching positive love. Aspiring to teach people to move into positivity will change the world – but remember, the choice to do so is always theirs.

You also have freedom of choice, and choosing to go all out for yourself is one way to proceed. Earth is a place, and the only place, to explore opposites. Try experimenting with selfishness, gluttony, pride, or other “me-first” attitudes. There is nothing wrong with that if it appeals to you. You can always return to where you are right now.

But, as you have pointed out, what is most important is what resonates with you, what makes you feel as if you are doing what you had always sought to do. Follow your intuition and feelings and create what is comfortable for you.
