The Grey Area Angels
Hey guys, yet another pondering ramble from your favorite Prince. Feel free to discuss and such.

---

Drawing from the "Why are you hear topic" I've come to an intersting idea, that I'd like to share with you all. Going along with the idea that I am here becuase I am punished for denying my true self, and acting falsly in order to become, what I thought, was a proper angel. This was both a selfish choide and grave error on my part. I wanted to be selfless for selfish reasons in that, I wanted to servev God as a "holy angel" but in doing so it would make me feel better about myself.

I feel now that I am and was always meant for "The space between two horizons" that is I should never pick a side. This is why I was not punished for aiding Lucifer, simply being untrue to myself for a great length of time after being given the chance to see that I was lovable and special in my own way. I am one of the ones working both sides of the fence to try and keep balance. If there is no space between good and evil then the two forces wil collide, and then neither would exist.

I suppose it would make the most sence since I'm friends with so many holy and fallen angels as well as demons and elves and other things Angels normally don't have much interaction with (at least in non human form). It also explains why I'm not "of heaven" though I did want to be. There is a place for me, and ones like me, that is very similar looking to earth actually, at least in my visions and memories. But yes.

The big question is if I'm so ambugiously good or evil, I do feel the need to be a positive force in the universe. And all my friends sence that I am in fact a "positive forced" angel. So if I'm a neutral, why does my energy say otherwise? Meh I've been in an odd state about all this. Any thoughts or ideas are very welcome.

Re: The Grey Area Angels
I dunno, me personally? im a firm beleiver in every being being capable of forging thier own path, making thier own choices, and deciding for themselves to be "good or evil". i personally do not get this ...obsession? i dunno, with wanting to serve another, or to follow "fate" or so on - but thats just me. i just try and encourage others to look at thier options and not be so quick to jump at one.

Re: The Grey Area Angels
Heh this process was neither quick nor was it a jump. Paths are forged on your own, yes, as I chose my own path and my own mistakes. I'm trying to learn from them. Though I must say staying where you're put is a very easy road, but in order to see that, one has to know a hard road I suppose.

Re: The Grey Area Angels
What you said, makes sense. I don't know about the truth of it, as many great lies have made as much sense, and some truth doesn't make sense at all. I can say definentally, that I understand the duality you're talking about, and I think that God, in all that wisdom, could create this situation. It shouldn't be dismissed automatically by good/evil or light/darkness steryotypes. The Truth, I suspect, is too complicated, and so much deeper than we want to admit. ...Ah, that was a very "safe" response. <!-- s:| --><img src="{SMILIES_PATH}/icon_neutral.gif" alt=":|" title="Neutral" /><!-- s:| -->

And return gift for gift;
Laughter for laughter let him return
And falsehood for lies.”

Its easier to go with the flow than to make your own. But in order to know that you need to try path forging, and it isn't always so glamerous as one would think.

Re: The Grey Area Angels
About what I've been or how I sometimes feel about the higher self.

Technical speaking keep the positive and negative energies away from each other and thus ensure a constant voltage so that the universe keeps running. In the same way rerout energy build ups that are problematic or would destroy the cosmos.

A bit like sitting on an astral unicycle with a dynamo keeping the universe running.

Re: The Grey Area Angels
there is an innate balance in all things. everything, is in essence neutral. where many get caught up is defining what balance is. in other words, is balance the polarity of good and evil...or is it the benevolent side of chaos? i typically vote for the latter. chaos inflicts change and order directs said change. balance is then achieved through the synergy of these two systems. one can be "neutral" (you would have to be while incarnated)...but still have an affinity for creating order, healing, or other "positive force[s]" as you put it. you are merely what you are, if you're a creature that instills harmony...no 'alignment' will influence your intrinsic self.

the dichotomy of good and evil is one of human creation (IMO)...here, it relies more on comfort and discomfort than literal harm and help. heinous acts, throughout cultures here, have been crafted through the rouse of benevolence and the same use of perspective has twisted kind acts.

it's my opinion that one such as yourself would find 'the space between' to be the most conducive to what you're stating you associate as. it's where you may progress well as someone without as many preconceptions/discriminations/etc. i would look at it less as a punishment and more of a careful placement given your attributes. where else would you fit really? perhaps you're still a bit confused of your "true self" (referring to your second sentence)...seeing as how you're mixing positivity/negativity duality with good/evil connotations (just a thought, of course). well, none too profound but i hope it helps

fade in now into ambiguity, what once mere intangible now my senses align...rather do i myself lose, or is lost the world?
