“The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing.” – Edmund Burke

Today’s world is one of mercilessly cutthroat ambition, where typically the strong thrive while the meek take a back seat and wither in the dust of the preemptive go-getters. It is commonly said that, “nice guys finish last,” and unfortunately those who act unjustly and strictly obey orders without reason, are the very same people the system rewards by its very design. It’s not easy walking righteously in a land run amok with mirrors, phonies, and a myriad of hidden landmines reeking of temptation and deception.

Righteousness is considered one of the highest virtues in many of the major religions of the world, such as Islam, Judaism, and Christianity; as well as highly examined concepts in Buddhism, Hinduism, and really all strains of thought for that matter. Despite one’s subjective opinion of religion, it’s quite impossible to realistically argue that one cannot obtain great truth from the ancient texts of these religions. There are numerous moral virtues that are fundamental to human existence which can be extracted from properly reading these religious texts. These texts would not have garnered the following they currently have without containing some level of inherent truth from which all can ultimately connect too.

However, this is not to be confused with their fundamentalist interpretations, which usually stem from those seeking financial control and power over the minds of others. This perception has badly tainted religion and made it largely ignored and misunderstood by a vast percentage of the population. Yet, as with most aspects of life, it can be learned from. So when something like righteousness appears frequently in multiple ancient texts, it might be beneficial to at least attempt to study its possible meaning.

Righteousness is acting in accordance with divine and moral law; arising from an outraged sense of justice or morality. In essence, righteousness is a divine state of being; one of ”virtue,” “truth,” and  “integrity.” This state of being would be in direct contradiction to that of being “immoral,” “dishonest,” or “deceitful.”

Some people don’t believe inherently in an objective reality of both good and evil; arguing that everything just “is.” However, finding those who do not at least have a basic conception of what good and bad means on a natural, objective level, of which all cultures generally accept as virtuous traits in life, is quite hard. In fact, it is believed in many cultures that the only way to receive one’s “eternal inheritance” in the afterlife or achieve enlightenment in one’s current life is to follow a righteous path.

The problem is that many do not completely comprehend what it means to truly live righteously. They believe themselves to be righteous, but in the end are only blinded by a false paradigm of misguided ideology. Yet the road is far from easy. There are tests around every corner, and the journey is one that truly lasts a lifetime; potentially going completely unnoticed in the process by the surrounding environment, compared to those who opt for the less righteous path.

The righteous often do not get noticed or receive the recognition they so deserve. However, if there is a next life, the belief is that one can transcend to a higher state of being, one of which the pure mortal existence currently experienced cannot fully provide. Simply, it is being the change one wishes to see in the world purely to keep positive energy of love alive and cycle it back through the universe.

So how does one live a life of righteousness?

Choosing The Righteous Path

A righteous being fundamentally and consistently chooses the frequency of love over the frequency of fear. This is not to say that one of righteousness does not make mistakes, because everyone is human and every mortal makes mistakes. However, one truly following the path of righteousness tries with all his or her might to constantly emit love over fear. Love is the state of producing light and giving it to the universe without expecting anything in return. Whereas fear is the hoarding of light for oneself and not giving any excess in return back to the system.

Intuitively, the righteous being understands the interconnection of all things in the universe, and therefore compassion is held in the utmost regard, as a vital component for a thriving universe. At the same time, it is the brute strength of the righteous that stands out above the rest; realizing that taking a stand against those who promote fear, violence, and injustice is both necessary and right for the frequency of love to continue to manifest. This includes putting one’s own life on the line in the face of incredible injustice. It’s those like Martin Luther King, Jesus, Buddha, Mother Teresa, and countless others which have no names to reference, that truly embody the righteous being. In fact, it is those who act righteous behind the scenes without any need for recognition, who truly embody and vibrate strongly of righteousness.

Using this knowledge, it is more important than ever for people to have faith that acting righteously can spread positive energy throughout the world in the hopes that it can finally get the wheels of change to start turning for the better. This is the only thing that will truly change the world; a change in paradigm of the mind and a change in the frequency of the soul, all of which embody righteousness.

In the end, if we are all energy, and energy is neither created nor destroyed, then what is there to really be afraid of? They do say the truth lives on forever.
