Is evil found only in man or does it exist as a separate force, “The devil made me do it” question of many generations? Do we create darkness with our minds sending out animated thought forms of evil, or are stories of fallen angels, conspiracy and controlling aliens true?
We are repulsed, yet titillated by stories of dark deeds. Book shelves and news broadcasts are full of stories of serial killers, brutality, evil schemes. Can we get sucked into this damnation by reading books or watching news reports, violent movies and video games? Must we leave our heads in the sand?
I keep trying to withdraw from all of this but find myself drawn back again and again. I spend many days in the peaceful seclusion of the floresta, yet people and circumstances filled with darkness keep coming into my life.
Are they drawn to the Light or is there something more for me to resolve or learn about my own dark side?
