But, you know what? The answer, "It’s a definite maybe" comes closer to a conscious approach to life than the extremes of answering either yes or no.
Why would I say this? Because there are no absolutes! Nothing is totally yes or totally no. Everything is both Yes and No!
People are not good or bad. They are both good and bad. The weather is not good or bad. Think about it! It rains on someone's picnic—bad, huh? And yet, the same rain ends another person's drought. Even YOU are not either good or bad! That's encouraging, isn't it? You're like everybody else—both good and bad.
Psychologists tell us that if you were brought up in the same environment as a serial killer, you would very likely have the same tendencies he does. If you look at this idea from the Yes and No attitude, you can see that this is a definite possibility. Scary, huh?
Little or no thought is required to live in the attitude of yes or no because it is a conditioned response—the response of a machine. Yes and No requires a moment of deliberate thought, and this is necessary to build a higher consciousness. It is also a big step in learning how to enjoy your life in spite of it all!
