    Everyone talks about good and evil as if those two polar opposites are the only ways one has to be, but I see no one considering their balance, neutral. I believe that everyone has both good and evil within, and as these forces find balance outside of the person, so must each of us come to the balance within. I believe that our Source is neutral, being a perfect balance of both good and evil, and to return to the Source from whence we came, we must achieve that same spiritual neutrality. Thoughts?

    I believe the good inside us must outweigh the evil inside. I like the thought of being neutral however I feel being neutral leaves much room to be easily lead into evil.

    I think when we sow good seeds in the right soil under the right conditions and feed it the right foods we can bear goodness more likely than not.

    To me, choosing one over the other gives us better control of what we would like our thoughts, behaviors, livelihood etc To become for us and those around us.

    Just keep your mind right and all will be clear. Everyone is capable of a lot of things, in the end you decide what you want to do with those capabilities.

    Neutrality seems like an excuse for evil to me. I.e. if one does good, "neutral" is to offset with evil?

    I see neutral more as a balance. Not ans excuse to do evil, but perfect balance. I believe all things need balance.

    It may sound like Dungeons and Dragons, but think about it for a moment. If you have two polar opposites, what do you get when you balance the two? Another wholly different state of being.

    I'm glad for you that you are good, but if evil is not the opposite of good, then what is? I believe that good and evil are like two opposing sides of a coin, with the joining material being neutrality.
