Imagine a metaphoric fence that we sit on in our mind. On one side grows the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. On the other side grows the Tree of Life that has no opposites or opposition.
The tree of good and evil grows in the atmosphere of a mind where good and evil have equal power. Its roots are fed by fear and separation. It is made stronger by a belief that life is happening to us in a world separate from us; a world from which we must extract our good and protect our self from evil. Its fertilized by judgment, self-protection and defensiveness. The Tree of Life grows in the atmosphere of a mind where only Love is real. It thrives in the awareness that Life is One and always unified. Its branches extend into the world through non-judgment, forgiveness and compassion.
Trying not to feel stressed despite a situation we have labeled as “bad” (according to the tree of good and evil in our mind) isn’t the same as choosing the Peace that lives within the Tree of Life with no opposition. Accepting “whatever” in resignation to opposition may seem like peace. But living Peace, Love and Joy that doesn’t “fight against” is accepting What Is, and it is the beginning of True Creation that will not fail to bear sweet fruit.
We attract life experiences that are a vibrational match to the vibrations of our thoughts. Because there is no “downtime,” as creative beings we create even while we’re sleeping. Our thoughts don’t rest in Peace at night if our days are filled with conflict. So, we might want to ask our self: “From the time I wake up in the morning until the time I wake up in the morning again, what am I creating with my thinking day and night, night and day?”
