Most of you must understand that your daily experience is filtered through a belief system that is far from accurate. Your experiences reflect faithfully those beliefs so there is no reason to question what to you seems invisible. You are simply reacting. At the very heart of your culture is the belief in evil, which is pervasive, intrusive, and you ultimately feel invaded constantly, with no course of action to fight it. To you, evil is real for you could see it with your eyes, with no seeming good that is visible to counteract it. You fight against it with hatred and anger. So your God’s, naturally follow your inclinations, they to are seen as vengeful, angry, and cruel.
Your lives are not measured in success, wealth, or prosperity. The measure of you, is the recognition of your integrity as beings. The very basic integrity of your molecules and cells to grow expand, and fulfill desires. To label yourself inherently evil is to undermine this very integrity and label it bad. Your conscious mind is meant to assess how you are doing in your life conditions, and relay this back to your fundamental core being who then shoots forth energy for creative purposes in those directions. If you are sending faulty messages, you simply create more of the same.
You would not say a flower is evil, yet it is made up of the same integrity that you are. A flower does not hold false beliefs about itself, so it does not create what you would call evil situations for itself.
Independence is not a measure of any physical things, to achieve true freedom is to free your minds of misconceptions and fake ideas. At the very least, learn to form your own, and let others to theirs.
Fear is the belief in your very being open to assault from outside influences you have little to no control over. Fear is the belief in evil that is within you. That your very spirit is assailed by forces that are cruel, and you must thereby fight against unnatural tendencies in every moment.
And since you will always transpose your basic ideas and beliefs onto physical objects, you will meet those ideas as symbols, seemingly very real, and taken as truth. There is no other way.
The belief in evil will then show you its many faces, from health problems, to poverty, to all manners of destruction.
