Evil = Laziness -- Part 1

Evil is downhill Good is uphill. This is both metaphoric and literal. Caves often have negative vibes. Hell is always considered down. Heaven is always considered up. I think one of the main reasons the Tibetans were are the holiest people on earth is because of the altitude. If you make no effort you automatically become evil. To be righteous requires work. Most are lazy so most are relatively evil.

Evil = Laziness -- Part 2

  1. Laziness, when cultivated, is not 'evil' or even tending towards 'evil' but the relaxed state of mind you need to really dance. It is laziness, uncultivated by intellect, that's a blank check for other, shrewder (shhhushing the rudeness as in politics or the con-artistry of politely shafting you with your sometimes even grateful consent) and somewhat more psychotic individuals to take various degrees of advantage of. The more zombies you can corral, the higher the level of your political career in whatever profession. The other major misunderstanding is that 'politics' or power-relations only matter in the area of government. Nonsense. Everything is government, including your governing of the different parts of your body through impulses coming from your mind and nervous system. Everything is 'control of the mind,' and it's really almost impossible to NOT be working at something. Even when sleeping, your subconscious is still 'working.'

    "Work is the curse of the drinking classes." -- Oscar Wilde

    And the reason they drink more is because the 'real' work that they need to do as human beings has been compromised, not tempered, not balanced, shafted and compromised and therefore, the need for often horrifically unpleasant shortcuts to so-called 'balance' or relaxed states with the edge-taken-off more conducive to the real dance. A stroke of evil genius: make the anti-dote to poison another form of poison, a hell of a deal, a short lease on their livers, brains, kidneys and pickled lives.

    “The art of living is based on rhythm — on give and take, ebb and flow, light and dark, life and death. By acceptance of all aspects of life, good and bad, right and wrong, yours and mine, the static, defensive life, which is what most people are cursed with, is converted into a dance, ‘the dance of life,’ metamorphosis.

    One can dance to sorrow or to joy; one can even dance abstractly. But the point is that, by the mere act of dancing, the elements which compose it are transformed; the dance is an end in itself, just like life. The acceptance of the situation, any situation, brings about a flow, a rhythmic impulse towards self-expression.

    To relax is, of course, the first thing a dancer has to learn. It is also the first thing a patient has to learn when he confronts the analyst. It is the first thing any one has to learn in order to live. It is extremely difficult, because it means surrender, full surrender.” - Henry Miller

    "Sublimation of instinct is an especially conspicuous feature of cultural development; it is what makes it possible for higher psychical activities, scientific, artistic or ideological, to play such an important part in civilized life. If one were to yield to a first impression, one would say that sublimation is a vicissitude which has been forced upon the instincts entirely by civilization. But it would be wiser to reflect upon this a little longer. In the third place, finally, and this seems the most important of all, it is impossible to overlook the extent to which civilization is built up upon a renunciation of instinct, how much it presupposes precisely the non-satisfaction (by suppression, repression or some other means?) of powerful instincts. This cultural frustration dominates the large field of social relationships between human beings; we know already that it is the cause of the antagonism against which all civilization has to fight." - Sigmund Freud

    “Truth is great and will prevail if left to herself, that she is the proper and sufficient antagonist to error, and has nothing to fear from the conflict, unless by human interposition disarmed of her natural weapons, free argument and debate, errors.” -- Thomas Jefferson

  2. "If nothing is holding us down to the physical plane, then what's holding us ? Why are we attached to structures? Why do we stick to our vibration level? Why do we fear change?

    To answer these questions, let's start at the top once again. There are lots of words for how it feels to be completely expanded: total awareness, completeness, freedom, love, ecstasy, certainty, stability, supreme intelligence, compassion. I think it will be least vague in this instance to discuss our interactions in terms of stability.

    Absolute stability exists naturally at the space level, because all relationships are persistent to the degree that the beings involved have the same expansion.

    But on the more contracted levels, where there is by definition some withdrawal of awareness, we accordingly have less control over how long the stable condition lasts. And when we are relating to beings whose vibrations are higher or lower than ours, we feel unstable and uncertain.

    In an unstable relationship, we have basically two ways to go, regardless of the subtleties of the changes: one way is towards stability, reaching a common level of vibration; the other way is towards disintegration, getting so far apart in vibrations that we are no longer aware of each other at all. Since we are uncomfortable in the presence of vibrations higher or lower than our own, we tend to make certain 'natural' responses. If the other person is lower, we will generally try to get him up to our level, to help him and cheer him up. But if the other person is higher, we will often, at first, try to bring him down and get him to lower his vibrations. Note that when you try to help someone you are working against his natural, perhaps unconscious effort to bring you down. The lower vibrating person (and this could be any of us depending on the circumstance) will appear to be draining the energy of the higher person, often with the best moral and social motives. This effort can take the form of exaggerated praise, sly pokes disguised in polite words, pleading for help with problems, showing fear and depression, freaking out, starting an argument, quoting better authorities, and a thousand other forms, all the way down to putting the higher person in prison or killing him."

  3. (. . . continued from previous post)

    "On the other end, if you are faced with such behavior, the remedy is to keep on outflowing love, to have no resistance in your mind. The lower vibrating person may reach farther and farther to bring you down, but when he finds you will not come down, when he senses that you have no internal resistance to him, he will have to rise to your vibration level to feel stable and comfortable, it is too painful to stay where he is. And he will rise, unless of course he goes the other way, and disintegrates from the relationship. You are not, however, obliged to wait him out: if you sense that he is not going to do anything but try to bring you down, you are free to effect the disintegration when you choose. In current language, just split. Don't dwell on it, and don't feel guilty about it. It's in the natural order of things.

    If you are going to take psychedelics or meditate and open yourself to communication with beings on higher levels, you should be aware of the implications of these automatic interactions between vibration levels. You are likely to feel overwhelmed, driven, compelled, degraded, full of psychic terror (the bummer) until you drop your resistance, expand in love, and move up to the vibration of the higher beings. They have no intention to scare you or test you, it's your own density that is making you have those feelings.

    Anything that really frightens you may contain a clue to enlightenment. It may indicate to you how deeply you are attached to structure, whether mental, physical, or social. Attachment and resistance are appearances with the same root: when you resist by pulling away your awareness, the emotion is one of fear, and the contraction is experienced as a pull like magnetism or gravity; that is, attachment.

    That is why we often fear to open our minds to more exalted spiritual beings. We think fear is a signal to withdraw, when in fact it is a sign we are already withdrawing too much.

    When we are afraid to see what is higher, we may then try to buy a feeling of safety or power by keeping our attention on what is lower. This process takes many forms in human life.

    Charity conceived as an impulse towards those lower than ourselves often has unhappy results. Many of our impulsive feelings have their source in erroneous assumptions about the status of other people. There is nothing wrong with feelings--the feelings on the space level are incredibly rich. But it is wise to pay attention to where our feelings are coming from, and where they are leading us. We may be seduced by a feeling of freedom, power, or amusement by relating to those we think are weaker; or we may recoil from the fear and depression we feel in the presence of those we consider stronger."

    A very much flawed hippie book from a bygone era with lots of good ideas. I took the baby's nose out of that bathwater.
