Mind if I talk out loud here...with no particular target for my ramblings?

Satan, devil, evil.... are these not all labels given to events or circumstances that we have deemed as negative/bad. Is this not a good example of "agreed upon definitions"?

Hasn't it been said that All Is God? Negative or bad circumstances are such because we have labeled them as bad....or good even. We cannot see them from a broader perspective...the big picture, if you will.

We may not see how a death could have an ultimate good to it. We are too close and at a disadvantage at the present time. Yet as we seek to increase our ability to open up to the Greater Wisedom....to Universal Consciousness... to a different way of seeing it, the labels will begin to dissipate. As the labels dissolve, the negatives will no longer exist and we will have a 'better frame of reference'.

There is no good or bad, better or worse... it simply is what it is. And it is what it is because of how we perceive it.

We have been counseled to 'embrace where we are' and step out from there. It is difficult to 'embrace' negative circumstances...yet so many wouldn't even exist if you would but drop the struggle.

Discussions of satan, the devil, and evil seem to simply give the labels more definition.
