Good and Evil - part 1 On The Rocks

    • Health & Fitness

In this episode Colin and Robbie are joined by Yyoga teachers Jeannette and Erica to talk about "good" and "evil". It's impossible not to be reminded of current events when thinking about evil right now, but how useful is that? Many of us will feel helpless and hopeless in the face of something over which we have no control. 
Yoga teaches us that good and evil are human constructs, just another one of those binary concepts that we have to rise above, to eventually let go of. But in the meantime, most of us want to be "good" and sometimes this idea gets in the way of truly understanding who you are, acknowledging some behaviour that you didn't recognise in yourself, and working on improving. Is this yogic improvement "being good"?
How do we deal with "evil" and "bad" in our daily lives? is it ever useful to use evil as a noun, instead of an adjective? Or better still, is it wiser to see these incidents as regular people having made a mistake?
This discussion has been split into two parts, join us soon for part. 2.
