Good and evil are two opposing principles in nature normally categorized into positive and negative, or light and darkness. While we associate the good force with light, the source of love with light,we can not name the source of evil forces through out the universe because, evil has no source.

The Source Of Good And Evil

Let say that evil is comparable to good, as darkness is to light. Light has a source, but darkness has no source, because darkness is the absence of the positive. Evil is merely the absence of goodness. Nothing creates evil because it is uncreated. Good is created, and where there is no goodness created, there exist evil. Furthermore, where there is no goodness, there is negative condition which is evil, dark and destructive. Good is constructive, Good is God. God is love. The opposite is the lack of the positive. Just like white has a source, there is no source for black and darkness.

In another vein, if we find evil in an individual, it is because there is an absence of goodness, love and godliness. Therefore, all that is needed to dispel darkness and do away with evil is to bring upon the negative condition, the vitalizing beam of God, light, life and love.

However, it is instructive to note that even though evil is negative , it has its place in the scheme of things because, it does constitute an opposite condition which must be overcome or lacking condition which must be filled. Light, life and love will grow stronger in its effort to dispel darkness; therefore, in our daily lives and in our method of living and thinking, the more we try to dispel darkness within ourselves and around us , and the more we try to overcome evil, the stronger grows our power of goodness and of light, life and love.

Uranta Emmanuel, Einstein thought as much. There is only degrees of such, of any source. There is no evil, but we say that there is, to define the lack of the greater good.

Satan Is not the greatest evil or lack of goodness according to GOD Himself for He is the first and the last, there is No cold only degrees of heat and so on. Our definitions are not good enough to define that which we know not.

But yet we define that which we do not know as we know thing or as we so think we know them to be, a paradoxical situation for us in our current state of being. To define the unknown is an impossibility for Us and Yet we still do define everything in terms that we as Humans can and do relate to that which we think that we know. And the things that we have yet to prove unto ourselves. A thought intriguing write. Uranta Emmanuel one that we will forever struggle with in our current state. Donnie/ Sinbad the Sailor Man

Sinbad the sailor man, thanks for your comment. I do understand where you're coming from. However, i want to quickly say that, for the fact that we do not know a thing, does not nullify its existence.
The perception of higher truth does not come from without. It is not something we can construct objectively, it must come from within and, it is a spiritual thing. Man fortunately has the capacity, if he attunes himself to the Cause of all, to unravel the deeper truths about life and what we refer to as death.
There is no impossibility in life, there only one is the impossibility we impose on ourselves. About two centuries back, if any one had spoken aloud that man will land in moon in future, such a man would have been regarded as being mad and such talk as an impossibility.
Finally, thanks again for your comment. It was a constructive one and i really appreciated it.
