The concept of Good and Bad and the spiritual path

Updated: Oct 18, 2022

In spirituality, it’s a fundamental assumption that a soul takes a body to experience human life in order to gather experiences, learn life lessons, and thus raise its soul awareness.

It follows that the soul and body are two different entities who get together for a purpose, and once the purpose is reached they split, i.e. the soul moves on to the next life while the body is discarded by death. By discarding the former body, its basic elements are returned to Earth where they came from anyway in the first place.

For many years I studied spirituality and got involved with evaluating the level of awareness (vibration) using the chakras scale of just about anything, whether a soul, a human body, a book, an animal, a tree etc. Actually of anything else, since everything is alive in Creation and has some level of awareness however small or large it might be. In connection with this, I also got interested in understanding the relationship soul-body, what destiny is, what factors influence it, and what laws and mechanisms in Creation govern all these making them work together.

I will comment below some findings concerning some interesting aspects about the soul-body relationship, more specific what humans understand by the concepts of Good and Bad, and what they mean separately for the body and the soul.

I will use below simple chakra numbering and not the sanskrit ones to simplify things, therefore we have C1 (root chakra) to C7 (crown chakra).

What’s Good and Bad for the Body

For the average person, who identifies himself almost 100% with his body, what’s good or bad for him is quite straightforward, cutting through all nice words and principles we all like to project outside about us.

Therefore, for a person we have in general terms as definitions:

• Good is what brings Pleasure

• Bad is what brings Displeasure

Actually, all animals have the same approach to life as people, we are mammals after all, so we swing in life between:

• Searching for Pleasure

• Avoiding Displeasure

Sure there are persons who have a better control over themselves and do not act just on instincts, but in the majority of cases our limiting beliefs in our subconscious and our body instincts do govern many of us.

The question is where do the impulses that lead us to Pleasure and avoid Displeasure decisions come from?

Well, the main factors that create the impulses in our body that influence our decisions come from :

• Body’s biochemistry

• Environment we are in

• Subconscious Beliefs

A person evaluates everything according to how internal or external factors reflect in his body sensations and takes the appropriate decisions to amplify the pleasure and decrease displeasure.

How does the world reflect in body chakras?

From my research, the body is mainly reflected in his C1-C3 chakras vibration. When looking into someone’s chakras’ level of openness I found the C1 chakra (root chakra) is about 5% open, while the other chakras are around 8-10% open on average.

The sensations of Pleasure & Displeasure a human perceives, according to the vibrations of the chakras, are caused by:

C1 chakra: Survival – fears for survival.

C2 chakra: Sensations due to intense emotions like sex, substances (drugs, some plants, etc), extreme sports (adrenaline) …

C3 chakra: Ego aspects: fame, recognition, self-esteem, selfishness, etc.

The beliefs in a person’s subconscious will determine ultimately how open one’s chakras will be, and hence how easily the kundalini energy in C1 (root chakra) will have the opportunity to ascend the energy channel along the spine (Sushumna channel), or not. Actually, this upwards ascension of the kundalini energy is what is called kundalini ascension. If well prepared, this process can be a blessing, while if it’s “wild” with no proper preparation it can be dramatic, and even lead to health issues.

What’s Good and Bad for the Soul

For the Soul things change drastically. The soul came with an initial Life Plan of major Life Lessons to experience here and has another point of view than the mind/body complex. The difference is mainly given by the fact that while the mind/body plans only for the current life since it doesn’t know and believe of something existing beyond the body’s life, the soul has a much higher vantage point about life, and knows about the perspective of an endless succession of incarnations and lives.

Therefore, for a Soul the Good and the Bad is:

• It’s Good what keeps him on the Optimal Life Path so to 100% experience his initial Plan

• It’s Bad everything that removes him from the Optimal Plan.

We should remember that the Souls uses the Body as an Instrument for gathering Experiences. Therefore, as long as on the Optimal Path is followed, the Soul is very interested in keeping the body in good condition so to progress on the life path. When due to the Mind&Body’s decisions the path deviates, the Soul is much less interested in maintaining the Body to walk that path. Nonetheless, even staying on the optimal life path doesn’t mean there will be no challenges and hurdles. Many spirituals imagine that once we listen 100% to our soul hints we will be protected from any troubles; this is not so by far. Without some challenges and troubles, our soul wouldn’t have the opportunity to learn anything, without them we would be in a kind of “vegetative state” in life. It’s just that staying on the optimal path the challenges and hurdles will be in general milder, easier to overcome with a decent effort, and leave no scars or very few.

When a Deviation occurs, the Soul beacons the body hoping for a comeback. The Beaconing manifests by events, diseases, dreams, visions, messages from people etc. Unfortunately, the majority of people are unaware and ignore beacons. Some persons who are Aware do understand the beacon and can choose to get back on the Path, but from what I saw many do not.

If the Soul and Body paths start to diverge too much and for too long a divorce is triggered between the Soul and the Body.

As a consequence, a soul leaves the body when:

• The body is too worn out and can’t be used anymore (eg advanced age)

• Deviation is too wide and hope of a comeback is lost (early death)

If the Optimal Path was well followed, and life lessons met earlier than expected:

• Exit (early death, so as to move on to the next life and not waste time)

• Adding along the way new lessons, of higher vibration even (life extensions)

The collision between Body impulses and the Soul plan

It might happen that a body pleasure collides with some belief that we have. These conflicts reflect again the first 3 chakras i.e. C1 to C3.

The beliefs in our subconscious can be both of higher vibration, or some limiting ones. The attributes of any belief are:

• Attribute of Positive Beliefs – postpone or sacrifice instant Pleasures / Gratification in the name of higher beliefs (principles ).

• Attribute of Limiting/Negative Beliefs – can’t resist the temptation of instant Pleasures (identification with own body) – e.g. small kids, criminals, people of low character in general

A person with higher beliefs/principles is known in general as a person of character, of having a higher Character. This means that one can prove in facts that he can detach from body urges on behalf of higher values.

If we want to live longer, healthy and happier, then we should:

  1. Correctly pass the lessons on our life path, and stay close to our optimal life path.

  2. Pay attention to beacons from our soul for possible deviations, and take corrective actions when needed.

  3. Raise our soul and body vibration (awareness), and thus change our destiny for a higher level.

  4. Help other people, whether physically and/or energetically

There are also other aspects concerning this subject, but I gave you above some outline of the quite different points of view our mind&body have on one hand, and our soul has on the other. Basically, the conflicts between the two points of view govern a person’s entire life.
