Wrongness is just a perception.

This blog post is based on the first chapter of the first book of a trilogy called "Spiritual Enlightenment", written by Jed McKenna. I must admit I have just begun reading it, but I already know it's an incredibly powerful and interesting book. I strongly recommend reading it.

When you think about it, nothing is ever wrong, nor right. You will tell me some people, like one whose name starts with "T" and ends with "rump", are wrong. Well, that person is wrong, I agree, but that's just our perception of him. In reality, he is simply living, period. And what he does isn't wrong nor right, he just does.

We perceive it as something wrong though. It's all in our minds, because the core truth, is that there can't be anything wrong nor right as we don't know the purpose of life. When you consider something wrong, or right, there is a reason why you think so. But in this case, we don't know the reason, we don't know the purpose of life. Because of that, there is no way for us to know what's right and wrong. It's all just perception.

This also means that, there are no problems in this world. We create problems for ourselves. Trump isn't a problem, unless you perceive him as one. Because as there is nothing wrong, as this is all happening in our minds, nothing can be a problem.

Additionally, this also means there is nothing to be solved, as there are no problems. Because there is nothing to be solved, why build skyscrapers, why go to war and why life while we are at it?

Animals don't have problems. They simply behave like they are biologically supposed to. They don't seek to build skyscrapers, nor to go to war, except if they are biologically programmed to do so. Animals don't perceive right or wrong, they just live.

This thought-process doesn't mean we should tolerate wrongness of course. It simply means that, while we are constantly solving problems in our life, in reality, there aren't any. It's all happening in our minds.
