The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly

On average, 300 million sperm are called upon to impregnate one soul, ah… I mean one egg. Actually, one egg will host a single soul, so my first assumption is acceptable. Indeed, many are called, only one is chosen.
Regrettably, the same is true of people.
And even from the very few people that are chosen only a small number choose to fulfill their purpose—to make the world a better place. There was Buddha, Christ, Mozart, Beethoven, Leonardo da Vinci… and a few dozen of Lesser Knowns. The number is still insignificant. Like a single sperm.

Being counted among the Few does not make anyone good. Neither does it make them bad, nor ugly. It simply means that some have chosen to become aware of their potential, which fact alone gives them access to incredible power. Suddenly we become aware of being able to achieve things we’ve only dreamt of before. We become aware of the divine potential within us, which, until this moment of self-realization, has lain dormant within us.

Isaiah put it rather well.
For unto us a child is born. Unto us a son is given;And the government will be upon his shoulder.And his name will be calledWonderful, Counselor, Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace… Of the increase of His government and peace there will be no end.
The above quotation is taken from scriptures, but any student of reality could have written it. The ‘child’ is, of course, our new state of consciousness; the rest describes its incredible potential. This incipient realization expands to take over our whole being. For full exegesis of this Chapter of Isaiah see my Dictionary of Biblical Symbolism. Believe me, it has nothing to do with any religion—just with the pursuit of Truth.

There is a problem, however. Remember the myth of Lucifer? He was the Shining One, the Morning Star, and then he took the wrong turn. Power corrupts. The greater the power the greater the fall.
So what of the good, bad or ugly?
’Good’ is all that is true, and thus it cannot be anything physical, which we know to be an illusion. Good is also all that enhances the perception and development of our potential.
‘Bad’ is everything that is unreal. That is false. Yet the physical world is also the manifestation of the intangible traits of life, love, learning, and beauty. Nothing embodying those traits can be ‘all-bad’ yet it remains only a mere reflection of its real nature that cannot be manifested fully in the physical reality.
So what of the Ugly?
‘Ugly’ are they who are neither hot nor cold. Who play it safe. The cowards. All those who do not try. All those who do not wish to make an effort to join the small circle of the Few.

Another book might help to explain. The Key to Immortality. It is an exegesis of the Gnostic gospel of Thomas. Try it and let me know. Please.
