Balance of Energy

Post by threewood14 » Wed Mar 31, 2004 7:47 pm

I've been thinking alot lately about good and bad events in ones life. Some idea that came to me was if for every good event in ones life, there will be a bad event of equal magnitude eventually and vise versa. For example, the unfortunate 9/11 attacks struck tragedy into the lives of many Americans. However for some, the war in Iraq was extremely pleasing. I say this because I am happy Iraq was liberated. Of course others have different opinions, but something in their lives of equal magnitude may have happened. It seems that everytime something good happens to me, something bad eventually happens or something sad. The reason I called this thread a balance of energy is because thoughts and ideas are only electrons in patterns in our nervous system and brain. For every good idea one thinks, it may have a particular pattern. An opposite pattern may be one concerning a bad idea. This has something to do with a balance of protons and electrons in the universe, but that's a different story that is not neccesary at the time... Does this seem like this happens to you or is it just me?

Would that be similar to karma?

My idea is that there is 'good' as well as 'bad' in everything; it's just a matter of how we perceive or choose to perceive things.

Yes but the deeds are repaid in this life, not your next!

well, it could be that there is good and bad in everything, but how would you describe good? or even bad? and also decaying does not always mean that you can not have another life.

I believe that sooner or later all humans endure the same amount of pain or happiness, just how they accept it differs in everybody. The people who accept pain better than others are the ones who look happiest. In this way there is still the balance of energy because the same is happening to everyone but the way this balance is looked at changes the way people measure happiness or sadness.

i think what you mean is that some people interpret things differently. but im talking about one person and his/her only interpretation of events and stuff. if you would combine everyones interpretation to form a single opinoin, thats different and something im not talking about...
