Any thoughts are okay. They just lead to different experiences and different opportunities (especially for those who see them as such). That's the nature of the gift of freedom. We can explore even those choices that lead to pain.rideforever wrote:And by the same rationale any thoughts are justified. If any illness is ok, then why not any thought ?
Every experience has the potential to teach us something of the nature of being and can lead to an expansion of consciousness. It's just reality that some lines of exploration lead through a path of pain and suffering. That that does not however, preclude their potential value in revealing something of a deeper understanding of life. The experience of painful emotions is so endemic to the human experience, it suggests that it is a key component to growth in this environment.
To the degree we are not willing to look for value in our painful experience, it will likely just get stronger until it gets our deeper, more fundamental attention. Ask Tolle. Was this not his experience until he finally asked "who is this me that I cannot live with anymore?" Pain finally got him to look at his experience in a way that was life changing and consciousness expanding. That same potential is available to most all of us.
