You are bad so you set out to do good...you are sad so you set out to be happy etc etc.
Can this be so?
When one is bad and wants to be good and that desire for good stems from bad is that goodness, if it is achieved, a result of the bad? Is good then not birthed from bad..? If something is birthed of another does it not still retain the essense of that which it was birthed of?
I have a hard time actualizing the concepts of good and bad or right and wrong because these psychological concepts always seem to stem from the opposite.
Reminds me of a quote
"When people see things as beautiful,
ugliness is created.
When people see things as good,
evil is created."
