I too may have been misunderstood. I didn't mean that there are no "good and evil" things in this world. What I mean is that those two opposites are simply creations through our human filters of perception. If we saw someone get murdered, we naturally assign "evil" to that act. In the cosmos when an asteroid destroys a planet, is this and act of "Evil" if there is no equally subjective consciousness to call it as such? Likewise, it is no more or less "Good". It just IS. Yin Yang. The Light and Darkness are polarities of ONE.

Actually I think we DO need "mental gymnastics" because we've been lazily spoon fed our beliefs for centuries rather getting out there and using teachings and principles written in ANY book or text as guides to living life consciously polarized in Love.

That is all. I'm not saying Jesus was wrong. I think he was completely right in his metaphoric teachings and I believe them as such because I have applied these and similar principles in my life and my life has changed "Night and Day". I was simply trying to illustrate from my perspective the complete validity of Jesus' teachings. Some people don't, like my grandmother (My Dad's mom - parents are divorced) who still prays every day, goes to church at least once a week, says a prayer in the morning and at night, and has lived what she believes to be a devoted Christian Lifestyle, yet mention my mother's name and out come curse words and hate that make even me uncomfortable.

So I guess what I'm getting at is that many will spend their lives living a false faith, by their OWN doing and not that of the Faith.

I don't disagree with you at all, perhaps my methods of explaining my views need some adjustment and I will take this exchange into account for the future.

At the end of the day, to have scientific backing to one's spiritual beliefs, no matter what they are, is amazing! It may not be easy to adapt these findings to one's Faith, but nothing about this life experience is supposed to be easy, otherwise, we wouldn't learn anything at all.

Take care and have a great weekend!
