Interesting thread, great topic...
Does "Negativity" Really Exist -- Isn't EVERYTHING Light and Love?
Yes, and Yes
That's the short answer, in my oppinion, but...
4electfew, It may help to know that the only hell I believe in is this place of illusion, this physical place. If hell is speration from God, here is where that illusion is felt the strongest. That, I believe, is the main cause of Negativity, that illusion of seperation. I prefer the words Ignorance and Wisdom over evil and good.
Death is probably the greatest illusion of this world because of the perspective that Psychic Child shared, Thanks for that.
Native people believe that there are four types of energy, Earth, Air, Fire and Water and what we call "bad" is an imbalance of energy. When we direct what we call negative energy to Mother Earth, to her it's just energy, WE make it negative or possitive.
The hells people visit upon other people are negative, evil acts but in a larger reality lead to a greater good. We cannot fully understand while on this side of the proverbial veil, and I won't even try to jusitify such acts. But concider that we didn't leave paradise to come and experience paradise, had we wanted to remain possitive we'd have stayed home.
That's why I said "yes and yes" because in this polarized world there is negative and possitive. But as all is energy, and all energy comes from, exists within, and returns to "The Source" it's all possitive energy, possitive flow. There is pleasent and unpleasent that we experience in order to learn and grow, to understand totally. After all, "back home" we'll never understand negativity, it doesn't exist there.
Just a few rambling thoughts...
