Personal self help question - If mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?
I read this quote by the Buddha on the personal self help page:
“A wise man, recognizing that the world is but an illusion, does not act as if it is real, so he escapes the suffering.”
This led me to thinking that: All wrong-doing arises because of mind. So if mind is transformed can wrong-doing remain?
Thanks for your question Kevin.
Although it may be difficult to see and to accept, right and wrong are relative terms. From our current limited perspective we may perceive something as a wrong-doing. However, from a more expanded perspective, we might say: Wow, I’m really glad that happened in that way, thus we no longer perceive it as a wrong-doing.
The thing to remember is that we all do whatever we believe will best serve us, based upon our current perspective. However, not everything we actually do will always seem to serve us at the time we do it.
As we grow (re-member) and become more aware of the different parts of our mind, our understanding is transformed. And from this higher state of awareness we’re better equipped to make choices that, more often than not, do serve us best.
Remember that energy is fundamental and eternal; so the Positive and Negative ideas of Good & Bad, Light & Dark and Right & Wrong, will always exist within creation. And while we know that the negative ideas are always there, we decide not to choose them by only focusing on the positive.
