Good and Evil
What Choice Do We Have?

By Carl Bozeman

The concept of good and evil has haunted man before he was even capable of writing. It is one of the great complexities in existence we as humans face even today.

Primarily, good versus evil has become a scale in an attempt to define human behaviors and actions and to categorize them in such a way that we can somehow know, unequivocally, what actions fall where on that scale. The biggest problem with this has been that nobody can agree on what actions fall where. Especially when you try to make the scale work universally in a very conflicted and varied world.

No two people, let alone communities, religions, or countries, ever see things the same and what may be right to one may be wrong to another.

Who decides?

In truth, no one decides. There is no need.

Good and evil do not exist other than to describe an infinite range of possibility which we all fall into. We know that we are eternal beings and will exist in some form forever. So where do you put so-called acts of good or acts of evil on a scale of infinity?

You can't!

Whatever you consider to be the most heinous and evil acts man has committed against man, there will always be some thing worse just down the road.

The same is true for acts deemed good.

We as humans, gods really, have to accept that we are capable of any extreme in an infinite existence. In the book, On Being God - Beyond Your Life's Purpose, we are told that:

"We are the good that we love, the evil we hate, the darkness we fear, the light that gives hope. We are all things, people, places we imagine or cannot imagine. We are all thoughts and forms and are endowed with power to create the good we cherish or the evil we despise in this existence. We are the beauty that loves and the ugliness that hates. We are the then, the now, and the yet to be simultaneously in a never-ending, timeless sea of infinite life."

We are all of it. That is what eternal existence is.

Anything is possible, but none of it is good or evil.

It just is, and no supreme judge tells us on what side of the line our acts and behaviors fall.

Right and wrong, good and evil, are two sides of the same coin and the duality created that says they are opposites in infinity does nothing more than confuse us and pits us against one another.

As divine beings, as we all are, we are infinitely capable of all possibility and no duality exists. Every aspect of life on this earth and throughout the eternities is rich, full and wonderful, no matter what side of an artificial line our acts fall on.

It is all wonderful beyond any physical comprehension and when we find our divine nature, we will understand and appreciate how incredible everything is!
