Somebody was asking the other day why consistency is so important, and I considered the issue deserves some reflection. Consistency is the basis of authority, of the straight, rightful path.  Inconsistency invalidates our own convictions, destroys any basis for authority over ourselves or over others, disqualifies us as examples or models to be followed. Because it can’t be confirmed by personal behaviour, an inconsistent opinion lacks the necessary value or moral authority to be taken in consideration.

 

We become what we defend, if we defend foolishness we’ll end up as fools. Therefore, whoever defends a fool is attacking the wise man and wisdom because,  as a wise man once  said,  “we cannot serve two masters”.

 

This is typical when in the absence of arguments to defend something we resort to the “the best defence is an attack” attitude, in most cases an indiscriminate attack. But such attitude only shows that there are no  arguments or authority to base the defence on and that we should admit our mistake and change our opinion … something quite natural and normal for an educated ego, but difficult for an un-educated one.

 

But not only that, by defending a thief or a fool we may be trying to justify our own tendencies to theft or foolishness and if we are understanding and tolerant with a crime we are being accomplices to it, allowing our “inner criminal” to let his destructive instincts run free.

 

All of which implies an inexorable danger in the Law of Attraction:  whoever defends evil, ignorance or crime will be in the future a victim of evil and the wicked, of ignorance and  the ignorant, of crime and criminals. A daring attitude, defending evil in this Universe, as in the long run we are always subject to its implacable Laws.

 

The only way of escaping a negative Law of Attraction is to remain as faithful SEEKERS OF GOOD based on a sound CONSISTENCY.

 

As an exception, we could say that inconsistency is only “excusable” when it is the result of ignorance or  is based on good intention. But still, as in the principle of justice, ignorance of the Law does not exempt from compliance, even more so in the case of the Law of Attraction. So all we can do is to be aware of the Laws of the Universe and try to follow them because in the long run they will keep our souls in the Light, away from darkness. Nobody said it was an easy task, and yet it is the most important challenge mankind has to face if it wishes to continue enjoying life on this Planet.
