Dewey - There is good and evil but not everything can be put into neat little categories. Not everything is black or white. There are many shades of grey. Most of the time, we hover in the grey area.

You can look at anything as either positive or negative. A few days ago, I almost died. I can dwell on the pain or I can say I am glad to be alive. I can feel that I was lucky or I can feel angry that my plans have been curtailed indefinitely. My feelings fluctuate but I have control over my response to any given situation. So do you.

I liked the analogy of the feast. Its all there but by your own will, you decide what you will ingest. Thats called free will.

Nobody will give you any definite answers. Part of your life's journey is to find an answer inside yourself. There will be people along the way to guide you but trust your feelings. If it feels 'ick', it probably is 'ick'.

Seek the light.
