How come so many are frightened of the other side of life? Of death and negativity in general?
Should we not have a wholistic perspective on life that puts the "dark side" in it's proper context.
Again I can see parellels with christianity and hinduism where in hinduism the "evil gods" are revered and taught about just as much as the good ones.Inlike in christianity, where many have been killed in the past just for talking about the devil or what not)
After all, God is all. ALL.
(Another major stumbling block in this are taboos. So many people have made up their minds about whether another is evil or not based on things like smoking cigarettes or drinking alcohol,etc. and not really applied the teachings of Jesus (as I understand them) or the buddha, for that matter. So I think all taboos are way more repressive than one's personal habits/lifestyle choices. It's what you do after and before that cigarette that is important. How you live the rest of your life.)
