History will tell the story.
But before that comes personal experience.
I have seen some good in my time.
For instance, learning to do good.
There is a tipping point where enough personal experience will show perspective.
There are a lot of feelings, thoughts, actions and belief that need to occur to build up enough experience to glimpse the truth.
I am not trying to convince anyone of the truth.
To be honest, most of us need to learn enough to find the way.
But I have discovered a good feeling, leads to a good thought which leads to a good action that produces a good belief. And that will help build a vision for my future.
Now, I can’t get there myself.
I have learnt that I need to cooperate with others in a good way to overcome the mistakes that others will do with me. I am not blaming others.
There is a lot of people that are still busy learning from their mistakes. Just like me.
To visualize where I want to head in my future, I have been targeting specific beliefs in my life. This is not a recipe for truth. What is good for the goose is not necessarily good for the gander. Or it may not work for you.
There is an axiom in my life: the hole in my heart THAT needs to be healed by doing good for myself and others.
There is another axiom that might be useful, it is for me, consciousness is like an onion, its development is in layers.
I believe I am developing a consciousness my entire life. As I progress, I am able to live a better and better life. My life will never be perfect, but with the appropriate ‘good’ in my life, I can learn to build a improved version of the life I am building at the moment.
I believe that seeing the good in myself and others allow me to control myself in better and better ways.
But another way, I learn from my mistakes because I admit my mistakes and cooperate with others that are willing to help me change for the better.
I have learnt I need to find ‘good’ to heal my heart when it becomes harmed by myself or others.
Philosophy has shown me to examine the reality in my life to overcome my own desire.
But that is another story.
At first this meant to abstain from acting on desire until I can overcome my craving or lack of self control.
Eventually, the same belief grew into I no longer crave this same desire, or I have no desire for this particular thought, action and belief and experience it for its good.
I am saying that I believe it is possible for me to learn to overcome unhealthy desires and change enough to live with healthier choices.
It is like the pain I felt in my heart has healed and I still recognize the folly that use to attract me to do bad for myself and others, but now I feel the good in the exact situation but only choose good.
My personal belief is that we all grow our own conscious based on our choices.
Therefore, good is its own reward.
