Emotions, on the other hand, being part of the dualistic mind, are subject to the law of opposites. This simply means that you cannot have good without bad.


how can we see the good in the bad ?

ET is not saying the good is "IN" the bad. He's saying they both co-exist or are both present within the dualistic mind.

maybe by asking our selves how can we make disappeared the bad by using the good ?

ET is also not teaching us to make the "bad" DISAPPEAR or use the "good" to defeat the "bad".
just my take on it...... jim :)

There is no good or bad, only preferences.

I prefer to be at peace, because in this state I enjoy life more and am better able to love and appreciate all that life manifests. I've tried being at war with life, which manifested a great deal of anger, hatred, misery and suffering, not only for me but also for those around me.

I prefer to be at peace, and then love what ever is from there.
