Good or Bad?

Every possible topic in our lives is decided upon us as individuals as either good or bad. We all make up our minds as to what specifically we consider to be "good" and "bad." But how did we make up our minds? Most likely we have been taught in life by others that certain actions are considered bad and some are good and so forth. Who should be making those decisions?

So many times in life we are taught to act in a certain manner. Nothing outside of the norm is proper or acceptable. There are expectations to live up to. Judgement is passed if one does not conform to the ideal standards. But who decided all this and how should one act? We as individual need to question ourselves first. We must ask ourselves, "What do I believe in, and why? Were we taught to believe certain ideas from our parents growing up? How about school, politics or church? What is real? What do we choose to believe?" At some point in our lives we must ask ourselves what it is we really believe. What do I believe to be true? How do I want to express myself and live my own life?

Jerry and Ester Hicks had some interesting points of view. "A belief is only a practiced vibration. You have the absolute choices about the 'truths' that you create in your own experience. Good and Evil are only ways of defining wanted and unwanted. And wanted and unwanted apply to the individual doing the wanting." So in summation, all of us decide for ourselves what we believe to be right or wrong. We need to decide these things for our own sake, regardless the influence of society. Sometimes that is easier said than done, but we should really attempt to be our true self. There is nothing wrong with the person we choose to be.

Don't be afraid to question anything you or others choose to believe. Let's decide to be true to ourselves and make our own decisions despite outside pressure. What do you choose to believe? What are your truths?
