PP - Parable of Good/Bad

Share Collapse

Author Comments

This weeks parable expands on what we have discussed in the previous parables. The problems in your life change when your perception of them changes, and this parable is about perceiving your problems as a whole, and shifting your understanding about your place in life. Shifting to what? you may ask... to whatever you want, but preferably, much more awesome!

Okey...but it's rly true thats good/bad stuff are concept which one create your brain/soul/spirit, and by your thought you create your own sight of the wold.
But because human can't know every thing about thing what happened(why,thought of other ppl ...) he can't truly know - that's will create good stuff or bad.

After seeing this, I'm not exactly sure how I should be rating....

ive had an idea of this way of thinking but have had trouble explaining it to other people. this parable will be very helpful, thanks

Huh, I remember this story. Anyway....

This story strikes me as a tad oversimplified. Claiming that the total sum of all good and bad events are indeterminable. From the uncertain future, anything is possible. So any future event may make use of past misfortunes. The underlining problem in this parable is time, and all good and bad are "ends" rather than "means." I won't argue if all good or bad things aren't means, rather not all are ends.

If time was indefinite, as infinite into the future and past, all final ends are void. But what action should anyone take? If nothing is good, or bad, all action is bias. Example, the farmer helped his son, when he could have choose not too. The son could have died, and there will be one less mouth to feed. Instead the farmer help his son's suffering. Promoting happiness over pain. The farmer "had" to choose an action in life. While this view is subjective, there is always one outcome that is usually the better, or best. The son help's the fathers uncertain future, and had a obligation to family. Evil doers actions tend to destroy more than create, or promote happiness. Villains may think there actions are good, but that just makes them more wrong.

Overall the parable is good. It gives a big question argument to them religious/moral/knowledge big universal concepts. I had to sit back and think over this review for about twenty minutes before coming to a conclusion.


Religion has a much different perspective on things whether they ARE "good or bad". Buddhists believe in the law of Karma and this story only tells morales from your own perspective not everyone elses. Be mindful that there are other people who take precautions to these events
