The Parable of Good or Bad



This weeks parable is about the duality of Good and Bad. Who knows what’s good and what’s bad? Things that seem bad may pave a way for something good! And good things could always lead us to something we feel is bad. Ultimately, it cycles back and forth, and its important to learn how to go with the flow, with a masterful awareness that shapes the world around you!

Now, there’s an important misconception about this video which I see often, and it’s very important to know. The awareness of which is the difference between being a masterful creator of your life, and allowing others to manipulate you in whatever way they see fit.

Here’s the jist – In being open to all of the experiences of life, when things are what we consider to be “bad” doesn’t mean it’s a time to not take any action. Regardless of whether things are good or bad, they are always opportunities for forward motion, and recognition about why things are bad in the first place.

What I mean by that is, when something that doesn’t make us feel great, what we would consider “bad”, lets practice embracing it for what it is, instead of pretending that it’s something that it’s not.

Courage is having the fear and doing it anyways. When something happens that makes you want to just say “I abdicate my responsibility” and walk away… see if there’s another possibility, another action, a courageous step into the unknown that might change the vibration into something … better.. don’t be afraid of taking that step.

The first step to doing that, is acknowledging how you feel about it.

Even just allowing the feeling of “Yeah, that kinda sucks… I wish it didn’t happen that way. It’s gonna be difficult to move that vibration forward”. It’s the acknowledgement of the feeling, whatever that feeling may be, which makes all the difference in the world. It allows for clarity and insight to permeate your being and know what the best next-step would be.

Sometimes, creating something grand around the corner takes a little bit of effort, and that’s okay too. If it was easy, we would have done it already :)

  1. Good or Bad, in my mind exist. Without “good” or ‘bad’ can karma exists? I guess it could be seen differently, it could be seen as drawing similar energy length to you. I know good and bad is a perception but perceptions do exist? Is higher energy good, is lower energy bad? I see higher spirits as good. I see intelligence as good. I see corruption and slavery as bad. Both good and bad experiences are required at different times for growth. I know you can’t have one without the other, from life comes death. I think I need more help understanding this. How does this theory play into spiritual growth and does spiritual growth matter without good or bad?

    1. ive thought alot about this myself. i like to think of the procession of earth.. or sine wave as a roller coaster. The time you are going downhill is scary but you would not be able to go uphill without that momentum. If the universe is infinity, then part of it could be conscious and part of it would want to explore infinity and “bad” things are possible therefore they will be explored by the universe. we are the tools used to explore the universe.

      what is growth? getting larger? becoming more mature through acquiring more knowledge? for the universe to grow spiritually it must acquire knowledge which translates to the universe growing spiritually.. we cannot grow in a lopsided manner only exploring one side of the universe, that would produce an unbalanced result! i hate bad shit too. i am still scared of losing the people that matter to me and being without financial sustenance. and I hope those things will never happen.

      I do find that life generally offers small lessons before resorting to the more painful ones. usually if i take heed of my inner voice on a decisions or if I feel something is a lesson, I do not encounter further similar lessons of greater magnitude down the road.

      life teaches you that, like the sandcastle kids, you cant do things that are wrong because they have consequences. if you fuck up and don’t stop fucking up on the same topic, life will likely give you harder and harder lessons to try and make you pay attention.

  2. I once heard an amazing buddhist parable of IF and BUT who went out on a boat, I must have been a teenager and I can’t remember exactly how it ended up with the boat capsizing, but this wonderful good and bad parable reminded me of it.

  3. This one is always a tough one when it comes to the really bad things. I mean, considering the most horrendous things possible; if some of them happened how can one go with the flow without judging them as bad?

  4. Jordan,

    Is this parable really just about living in the now, not worrying about future or past and focusing intentions where necessary?
