The essence of the world is God, and God is good, and goodness is eternal.
But evil has no independent existence of its own, and it ceases to exist in the presence of unfettered holiness.
Even though it seems like they’re winning, the truth is that the evil ones are disintegrating, for the people are waking up and walking away from them.
What you see are only their spiritual shrieks, their last acts of resistance.
Our spiritual lives are complicated. Our deeds are good and bad. We have accumulated negative baggage as we have traveled through life and made mistakes.
But as we attach ourselves to God more and more consciously, we begin to move faster toward the world of Eternal Truth, of goodness, and we shed the dirty spiritual clothes of our past.
Evil is a burden. It isn’t who you are. Live by your best values.
Let the bad stuff go.
