Title: Spiritual DEevolution...
Post by: Embodied Words on November 26, 2007, 12:10:27
Ok, here's something I think of a lot...

Is anyone else out there interested in how LOW they can possibly get? Yes, it is true that you can learn a lot from spritually evolving, becoming a higher form of life and all that, but isn't it also true that you can learn a lot from... well, spiritually degrading yourself?

This doesn't mean that you should become a bad person or do bad things, not at all. It doesn't mean drugs or anything bad, because I'm not talking about physical stuff.

It's just, sometimes when I get really depressed, I like it. I like seeing how badly I can feel, and the thoughts that I get from that. Can't you learn just as much from sinking down as you can from climbing up?

Just a thought.

Hey Embodied Words,

Spiritual evolution is usually more than positive thoughts - it also implies a refinement of mind, consciousness and even EGO. Likewise, devolution would imply a reduction of these things - digressing into a simple, more basic, state of mind.
Regarding negative or black thoughts, Iíd say itís generally a good thing to follow them rather than repress them Ė but only as long as you donít feel a compulsion to act on them. Itís a fine line between working through something and wallowing in something.
When I was younger Iíd generally see a lot of messed up things if I lay with my eyes closed, demons, death, that sort of thing. The source of it seemed to be my mind was uncontrolled and so kept throwing up things I felt I didnít want to see, or feared to see. By facing it, I eventually came through the other end with more control over my mind, and whatever issues were throwing up such images resolved.
