| On Evil
Here are some quotes and thoughts on evil.
"Cosmic intelligence has not given equal power to good and to evil... The good exists. Not only does it exist, but with the passage of time we are forced to realize that it always ends by being victorious. Never give way to discouragement, therefore, on the pretext that you see the ravages of evil in the world. Evil wins some battles and you feel threatened by it, that is normal, but that is no reason to lose your faith in good... Suppose that nothing but evil surrounded you – which is certainly not the case – you could still cling to the good that is in you; you could still strengthen and intensify it. Is this certainty, this activity not something which could give meaning to your life, whatever your circumstances?" (O.M. Aïvanhov, Izvor 239 Love Greater Than Faith, Chapter Seven, pp.124-125)
"Some believe it is only great power that can hold evil in check, but that is not what I have found. It is the small everyday deeds of ordinary folk that keep the darkness at bay. Small acts of kindness and love." (Gandalf in JRR Tolkien’s LOTR)
"One thing believers have difficulty in accepting is that God, who is all-powerful, doesn’t finally decide to annihilate the evil spirits that come to tempt them. But what they do not know is that these spirits also have the right to live. God will never punish the evil spirits for coming to lead them astray: it is up to them to be more enlightened and stronger, to understand where their real interest lies, to realize why it is preferable to go in one direction rather than another and to have the willpower to take this direction. Would it really be to human beings’ advantage to be forced onto the path of goodness and light in spite of themselves, shielded from temptation and error whatever they do? The creator and heavenly spirits allow them to find their own path, so they can develop their conscience and learn to become responsible for their life decisions." (O.M. Aïvanhov)
There does exist a negative dimension, and we have created all kinds of nasty thought forms. There are a lot of nasty-type entities around. We potentise the evil forces with negative thoughts every moment of the day. Evil is an energy that maintains itself only if we support it, and therefore the more we transmute evil energy, the more beautiful cosmically this Earth will become. (Lilla Bek, Crown Chakra, track #4, 6m42s; excerpt)
"Continually asking questions about the existence of evil only saps your strength, and any attempt to suppress evil is an exercise doomed to failure. What do we do in winter against the rain and snow, against storms and the cold? Do we go outside and command the forces of nature to calm down? Perhaps it is like that in fairy tales, but in everyday life we work on our house: we reinforce it, check the insulation, and install good heating. When the job is done, we are at peace.
Well, wisdom tells us to take the same measures with regard to evil. Instead of struggling directly against it, we must concern ourselves only with becoming more resistant, so that we can understand it better and act more effectively. And this is how a misfortune, which otherwise would bring us down, actually helps to strengthen us, to make us hardier and more noble." (O.M. Aïvanhov)
Why do evil people seem to get away with it?
"When the chemist pours a few drops of a reagent called ‘litmus’ into a clear acid solution, the liquid turns red. Then, drop by drop, they add an alkaline solution. At first there is no change. But they continue slowly, drop by drop, and all of a sudden the liquid turns blue. From this phenomenon, we can draw a lesson about psychic life. Someone who transgresses divine laws does not immediately notice the disintegration that occurs within them. They imagine they can continue with impunity... But one day, with just one more transgression, they collapse inwardly. This law obviously holds true for good as well. Someone comes and complains to me that for years they have worked on themself, without obtaining any result, and they are discouraged. I have to tell them that their reasoning is faulty, because the effects of this work are not immediately visible and tangible. They must continue, and one day, inevitably, the transformation will occur. With good as for evil, you must not imagine that nothing is happening just because, for a long period of time, you do not notice anything." (O.M. Aïvanhov)
What does evil think of good?
"Let us suppose you have been unfortunate enough to swallow some poison. The poison has devastating effects on you, but as soon as the doctor gives you a powerful antidote you are saved. Because the antidote restores you to your normal state, its effects seem less dramatic to you than those of the poison. But the antidote is even more powerful because it overcame the poison. And in the same way counterpoison annihilates poison, love eradicates hatred, light eradicates darkness, and good eradicates evil. Because we find good agreeable, we find its presence normal and instead devote all our attention to evil since it is evil that creates discord. But if you go and ask evil what it thinks of good, it will complain about the beatings it had. Ask the dark spirits what happens when a light spirit comes by: they scream and take fright. It’s not the light spirits who take fright! To understand the power of good you need to ask evil." (O.M. Aïvanhov)
"All creatures have to eat and drink to stay alive and then they have to eliminate the waste. What does this waste consist of? All the elements that are no longer of use to the body. But these elements were contained in food and drink that were good since they enabled them to stay alive. Yes, and this is a fact of everyday life that is worth some contemplation.
Whatever the quality of what we eat and drink, there is always waste and this waste needs to be eliminated, and for this there are specific places. This phenomenon occurs in all planes and at all levels of creation. It could therefore be said that hell, with all its inhabitants, should be seen as the place where the impurities of all creatures amass. This hell Christianity has talked about for centuries, depicting it in phantasmagorical shapes and colours, is in fact the rubbish tip where evil – the impurities expelled by all creatures – is discarded." (O.M. Aïvanhov)
Those who persist in describing hell as a place where miserable sinners are doomed to eternal punishment do not realize how this belief contradicts the love of God, for God never rejects anyone forever. This belief also goes against God's wisdom, because God, who is wise, never lets anything go to waste – in his creation, everything can be used and everything is put to use.
This is another area to explore: the laws of the cosmic economy. As on the physical plane, the same is true on the psychic plane where unclean elements are sent to a place where they are transformed by certain entities. There is a whole system of pipes from which the purified matter emerges to then travel along other circuits to feed, water and fertilize other unknown regions. It is not always the same impure elements that accumulate and stagnate in hell, for new waste constantly arrives to replace what has already been transformed. As such, we can say that hell is a place cut off from divine light, but renewed materials emerge from it to re-enter the stream of life. (O.M. Aïvanhov)
Black at the top of the head [in the aura] usually means that there has been a life of black magic. There are two things to remember here. If you have had a life of black magic, and opened to the top of the head, after you have died you may realise that this is not what you wanted. In which case, you would go to the blue dimension for healing. Therefore, you go through hell-like experiences, which are very like the pictures that are drawn of hell... (Lilla Bek, Crown Chakra, track #4, 5m46s; excerpt)
Evil as ignoring your intuition
"We all have a kind of inner magnet which is the synthesis of our thoughts, feelings, and desires, and this magnet attracts the people and situations that correspond to the elements of our psychic life. So as soon as you feel you may have taken the wrong turning, begin by restoring order to your inner world so that you will be more clear-sighted when choosing your way in the future. Of course it is difficult. Of course you will suffer. But that suffering – which you call evil – actually represents the warning signs which cosmic intelligence sends to all of us. It is a rude awakening from sleep and an invitation to reflect and understand that we need to change direction and exert ourselves."
(O.M. Aïvanhov, from Izvor 239 Love Greater Than Faith, Chapter Seven, pp.127-128)

Who will defeat evil?
"All that is good opposes evil, and it is thanks to love that we can fight hatred. Evil is always defeated in the end, for God refused to make it immortal. We can compare every word and act of hatred to a stone thrown up in the air – with time, it has less force to rise up. Conversely, a good word or an act of kindness can be compared to a stone thrown from the top of a tower – with time, its movement and power gain impetus. This is the secret of good: although it may be weak at first, in the end it is all-powerful and triumphant." (O.M. Aïvanhov)
"It is the role of heavenly beings to fight against evil, not that of humans who don't have the stature, the ability or the methods to do so. All those who imagined they were strong enough to go to war against evil have been brought down, because evil is an extremely powerful cosmic force. However, evil is mistakenly seen as being as powerful as the forces of good, and the devil as an entity strong enough to stand up to God forever. But human beings don't have the capacity to overpower this entity. When some brave people think they have been given the mission to eradicate all the evil in the world, they underestimate the dangers to which they are exposed.
However, this is not a reason to remain inactive until the heavenly entities come to slay what the book of Revelation calls the dragon. Every day, while progressing on the path of light, we can strengthen the army of the good, the army of the sons and daughters of God, so as to hasten its victory. When this army is large enough, the entities of darkness will be defeated. If they still exert their destructive activity, it is because humans' greed and inferior desires continue to feed them." (O.M. Aïvanhov)
