Subject: RE: BS: Is Positive Thinking Satanic?
Correct, McGrath. In a relative Universe, based on perceptions of duality, positive implies negative.

The idea about God is that God is a single, infinite Unity. Within that Unity there IS no duality, and nothing is outside that Unity...except illusion. Illusion is a matter of perception. Things are neither bad nor good until someone who sees those things as outside himself decides to rate them on a scale of his own choosing.

Relativity, therefore, is an illusion...based upon an isolated perspective that sees itself as separate from the rest of "creation". Being separate, in its own estimation, it forever divides things up into good and bad, according strictly to its own interpretation of what benefits it and what doesn't.

Relativity implies separation out of which arise both fear and desire. And there are the problems in human consciousness, in a nutshell.
