There Is No Evil Unless You Make It So

Head hunting was a long time practice, perhaps many hundreds of years, with some of the most remote endogenous tribes of the southern hemisphere. Likewise, cannibalism was also practiced among some of the head hunting tribes. Sometimes cannibalism stood self-sufficient where head hunting was not practice. Eating the flesh of your victims was considered to be a way one could gain the strength of one’s enemies.

My point is that whereas we might find head hunting and cannibalism to be abhorrent, those who practiced these acts of them as anything but natural and even good and admirable.

One person’s good can be another person’s evil. Who is to tell the difference? Only those engaged in the behavior can label it good. Only those not engaged in the behavior can call it evil. There is no evil unless you make it. There is no good unless you make it.

Every action can be labeled good or bad by those looking at it and making a determination. Every action is just that, an action. We make a judgment as to its goodness or badness.

Every action is merely neutral until someone claims or places a value of good or ill upon it. There is no good or bad unless you make it so. Cannibals thought nothing of eating human flesh. You may well find that practice abhorrent.

This is one way you give meaning to your life. You observe the happenings around you and you decide whether they are good or bad. You follow those practices or not depending upon your value judgment of them.

I imagine that in the drug culture most folks find the highs they get from illicit drugs to be something good. Others look upon drug addicts as poor souls whose lives are being lived in hell.

Indeed, it appears that one can only cure oneself of drug or alcohol abuse when there is a very deep and profound change of value judgment by the addict him- or herself.

Make no mistake please, you are making value judgments, small, medium and large and every marker in between your whole day through. Was it valuable to you to shower or bathe this morning? Was it valuable for you to brush your teeth? How about eating that extra donut knowing that you have gained a few pounds?

You make a value judgment every time you take action with or against your spouse or significant other. You make a value judgment every time you treat a stranger or big-box store cashier with kindness and courtesy.

Your life is filled with valuing from the time your wake up until the time you retire to bed for the night.

Therefore, make valid judgments for yourself each time you need to value something or someone. To not make a discernment is to make a judgment anyway. Make good choices about what you call evil and that you name good. These assessments help determine, directly, the quality and meaning of your life.

Sonar Is Useful Only As It Emits and Receives Bounce-Back

There is a very useful piece of naval equipment, it’s called sonar. Used under water in our oceans and lakes, etc., it finds objects that cannot be seen by the naked human eye.

It operates by sending out an energy wave. That sound wave bounces off a solid objective out there in the water. The sound that bounces is like “ping.” By measuring the rate of speed that emission takes to rebound from the unseen distant object back to its receiver can even very accurately estimate the distance between the two objects.

Sonar has become so sophisticated that it often ascertains the shape and size of the object being detected by the sonar. This is named echolocation. The term sonar derives from the following: so(und) na(vigation) r(anging).

What does this have to do with you and your happiness?

Your life ought to be this way. You need to be emitting something and receiving something. You need to give off happiness and you need to receive the signal back that happiness is yours.

You are not exactly like sonar: emitting a signal that bounces back to you as a direct reply. But you can see yourself as one who beams happiness into the world and knows that happiness comes to you from the Universe.

You discover that you have happiness when you make ever-ongoing contact with the All There Is, sometimes called the Universe. When you make and maintain a connection between yourself and the All There Is you discover something most wonderful.

You discover that you are completely accepted just as you are in this moment. This acceptance is sometimes named love. You are loved, eternally, unconditionally just as you are. You need not earn this acceptance. You can do nothing to separate yourself from the adoption.

When you know that you are totally and utterly accepted, you are liberated from all the cloying items and rules that others often demand of you. When you find yourself liberated from the demands of others, you know peace and contentment within yourself.

Even the All There Is demands nothing from you. You can be yourself – totally and utterly. When you feel accepted so much so that you can be yourself always, you know happiness. For there is no greater feeling of well-being than total acceptance.

Then to affirm this happiness – make it manifest in the world – you beam that happiness into the world by acts and words and thoughts of compassion. Compassion takes many forms. You can pick the ones you wish to use as beam-ways of your inner happiness.

When you are filled with happiness you just naturally gush that well-being. It overflows out of you and into the world that surrounds you. When you beam compassion into your world, you reaffirm the happiness you carry with you inside.

Like sonar you emit a signal into the world. That signal, compassion, helps you see over and over again what it means to be happy. You then continue to receive affirmation of the highest order from the All There Is. Through the connection you establish with the Universe at the soul level of your being, you feel acceptance also of the highest order. Signal out, signal back in again. Something like sonar.

Start beaming; starting feeling your grand acceptance.

Happiness Is THE App

“There’s an app for that!” You’ve heard that idea many times I am sure. The number of apps available for download and use number in the hundreds of thousands. Almost anything you can think of has an app to be used on your computer, smart phone or tablet.

If there isn’t an app at the present time and it is possible to code, all you have to do is build it yourself, or get someone who can write code to build it for you. If your idea is good enough, you may even make a fortune selling that app for 99 cents a throw.

There is a free app that can and will change your life for the better when you will apply it to your life. That app is named “happiness.” The code is already written and in use by millions of people around the globe. You can “download” this app anytime you wish it and at absolutely no cost.

The only “payment” you need to come up with is some time and some patience. There are many ways to feel better about your working from the outside in. Fellowship with friends, accomplishment at work or on the athletic field, a good and singular relationship with a significant other, doing well in school, and many more promote well-being, or happiness, on the exterior.

But all those things can change sometimes even without warning. Exterior happiness, while good and important, does not last. It is perishable. To keep you happy, a superior sense of well-being, you need an internal app downloaded and in use.

This is a grounding app. Happiness anchors your life. In happiness you cannot get lost. For once you have found happiness, and maintain the virtual connection with it, happiness will always find you. You cannot, then, ever be lost. Happiness is the GPS of your life. This app is happiness in a significant and almost tangible feeling of well-being.

Where do you get this app and how do you download it? You download it by making and keeping a connection to the All There Is. You make that connection through meditation of some sort. (I say “some sort” because there are many forms of meditation.) The simplest way to meditate is to sit or lie down comfortably. You then simply become conscious of your breathing. In and out.

When your mind wonders, and it will many, many times, simply bring your concentration back to your breathing. Over time and consistent practice of meditation, your mind will quiet down. Then make contact with the All There Is. When you have made contact with the All There Is, you will feel total acceptance and unconditional regard.

Total acceptance and unconditional regard means you are unconditionally accepted just as you are. You need do nothing more or any less to be thus accepted. This acceptance can be the greatest and finest feeling you have ever had. It is true well-being.

Unconditional regard means that the All There Is is constantly watching you to see what it can do to help your life be better and better. Sometimes this unconditional regard is called love. You are loved beyond all measure and all years.

Try this free app for yourself and see if it doesn’t change you life for the better from the first moment you make contact with the All There Is. Get to it.
