Today I'm going to ask you to wrap your brain around two big concepts. Two very large spiritual concepts. The first is that all things are simply energy. The second is that all energy comes from Creator, from Source, from God and therefore all energy is divine. Coming from the higher place, there is no good nor evil. Vibration and energy are neither good nor bad. It is all just energy.
Now let me give you an example.
What if you are held up at gunpoint? You are frightened and your life is threatened as the perpetrator demands you hand over your wallet. In that wallet you carry not only the last few dollars you have, but also the only picture you have left of your grandmother who passed on years ago. Perhaps there is inside a picture of your deceased brother, sister, child, friend, or parent. An irreplaceable memento of priceless value.
Now this situation when it is happening to us and afterward feels horrible. As humans it feels like more than energy, it feels like an attack on us. As humans it's hard to see the divinity in this act, this violation, this aggression and the loss of valuables that are so important to us is painful.
We might even label this crime, this act, this trauma against us as an evil act. We might very naturally begin to hate the person who attacked us and wish them harm. Hope they are found and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law. Sent to prison where all manner of “evil” things can happen to them.
Now I purposely chose a somewhat mild example because I never want to bring you to that place of extremes. I'm sure you can imagine a worse scenario right now on your own; and if it helps you to go there and imagine the extreme wrongdoing that could happen to someone you love or to yourself, you are welcome to go there.
In this labeling of good or evil we step into a place of judgment. But from a divine standpoint there is no judgment, it simply does not exist. From the divine view, all things simply are energy and energy is neither good nor bad.
In a recent channeling session by Paul Selig, who I absolutely adore, and I will give you a link to his website below, Paul channeled wisdom on this concept of good and bad. His guides said it actually very beautifully so I'm just going to quote them here. Paul’s guides said that “what you damn, damns you back.” They said that “what you call darkness, places you beside it.” And they said that “there can be nothing outside of God.”
The guides further pointed out that if you have a desire to change something, to lift it up and raise its vibration, the only place from which you can do that is from a higher plane. The guides point out that when we are damning something, we are in that vibration we are standing right next to it and we are not capable of divine transformation at that level.
Now this is a very difficult concept for us humans to wrap our brains around. It isn’t at all easy to gain this perspective. When you feel you have been wronged, when you’ve been hurt or some tragedy befalls you or a loved one, your ego personality goes into a place of judgment. It is natural to do so. And yet, on another level, our divine self sees only the energy of the situation and does not fall into the vibration of judgment.
Our task as spiritual beings is to rise above seeing anything as good or evil. Our task as spiritual beings is to seek out the divine in all things. You've seen examples of this in the media, in books, in life, of someone who has had a tremendous wrong, perhaps seen as an evil, done to them or someone they love and yet they are able to go to a place of absolute unconditional forgiveness. These people are able to step into their divine nature and find the divinity in the other.
I invite you to think about times and ways that you have not been able to do this and perhaps now is an opportunity to try to step into your own divinity and move to a place of raising up what seems a great evil to a higher plane. Finding the divinity within it, whether you understand that or not, just knowing that it, too, is of God and that perhaps some great happening will come of this. And perhaps some great awakening will come from this.
Returning to the example of having your wallet taken with your precious goods inside, perhaps that event as much as it hurts and frightens and angers you will lead you to start a neighborhood watch group which down the road saves a young girl walking home late at night from being attacked. It might lead you to petition your city to light up the streets more, or perhaps it will lead you to start a counseling group for those who have been in a similar situation and through all of these acts, or any one of these acts, you will alter the course of events for another human being.
When we come from a place of seeing the divine in all things, we are more readily able to move through the human emotions of anger, hurt and fear. We are more able to process all of these vibrations in healthy ways and see them as something other than evil. We still have to do the work. We still have to go through the feelings and thoughts, and at some stage of healing, we have to allow the divine nature of all things to simply be.
