Resolving Either/Or

Kierkegaard's insight-dilemma of either/or, the choice between sensual gratification or purity and virtue (which he defines as altruistic) can be resolved in the Twofold Path. We can do both.

What we see or experience in the Involutionary Inward Path requires a purity that is not necessarily altruistic, it is another form of self-gratification even though it requires blocking sensual gratifications to see the Kingdom of God within, which is blissful.

The so-called path of sensual gratification, the Evolutionary Outward Path, also requires purity and virtue, the climb toward Godhood in evolution is very much concerned with the means to this end, that is, higher consciousness, intelligence, goodness and refined complexity.

“Existence” is involved only in the sense of being alive to make the choices. The path in evolution is undetermined but the goal is determined, activated by the Spirit-Will To Godhood within life.
