Where Does Goodwill Start?
It starts with ourselves.

Before there can be goodwill towards others, we must be able to understand and have empathy for the confusion of others, and to do that, we have to understand our own confusion. We are all coming from the same place of self interest. We shouldn’t feel guilty or be harsh on ourselves; through misunderstanding, we just evolved that way. We consented to go along with others because we didn’t know any better – we didn’t know there was more to evolution. Unfortunately, we have been misled by both the pleasant and unpleasant; this is the blind leading the blind.

The good news is that, having recognised this programming, we can be released from this obsessive attachment to our ideas. In fact, recognising the programming is our spiritual path – our confusion is our path. The only thing we need to do is undo the confusion; our confusion! To do this, we have to be gentle, kind and understanding towards our mis-understanding. Once we accept the situation, the path is liberation, and the way to enlightenment has started!

We are no longer fighting ourselves, beating ourselves up, being constantly caught up in inner conflict. All that is needed is awareness: outer awareness and inner awareness.

Outer awareness is all those mental fixations
that do-our-head-in.
Inner awareness is pure consciousness that is aware of those fixations
that do-our-head-in.

So awareness is the way, the truth and the light of life. This light of life is the feeling of existence, “I am”; through compassion and devotion, we lose the ‘I’, and all that remains is ‘am’-ness, pure being. No one comes to the absolute, but by ‘me’, which means having first recognised the mistaken view of ‘me’.

“Jesus saith unto him, ‘I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.’”

Genuine goodwill explodes our fixations.

    Merry Christmas ! There was a great man that spent 64 years lovingly obsessed with exposing truth to benefit all, and healing the little children…..that’s unlimited/unconditional compassion and empathy, and unconditional love.
