The wrong dark side.

When considering the dark side most people presume that it originates from being on the wrong side of God. However what about if that is not always the case. Is it also possible to be on the wrong side of the 'I'?

I wonder how many people have a terrible relationship with their own inner I and the universal I? I believe it is quite likely that most people are on the dark side of their own I.

Most people feel very positively about God. However when you ask them how they feel about themselves they are not so positive. Consider that most people are on the right side of God, but on the wrong side of 'I'. Would that explain some of the behavior in the world?

If we assume there is an all creating God, then we have to assume all that we experience comes from this God.
There is no but of if.
It is just up to us what we do with it.

you said 'IF we assume'. Presumably you meant that everyone should agree to that as a fact, but what for example happens if I don't? Then for me, your argument falls apart because the antecedent doesn't hold.

There is a belief that what is external is also internal. It's rather Hermetic. As above, so below. As within, so without.

I think that's what you're trying to say ?

So if one maintains a belief in a battle between good and evil that rages externally, and even if they don't maintain such a belief, they shouldn't overlook the one that goes on within.

if the inner I is our thoughts for sure i can have a bad relationship with it. but then a bad relationship with thoughts can be a good thing!
