of the “dress-up” that evil assumes to disguise itself as “good” the basic fact
that enables us to discriminate between these “pairs of Opposites” is that
GOOD -- is an obedience to the universal and constructive ASPECTOF
Nature’s Laws -- those Laws demand that the rights and privileges of the least
of creatures be respected and especially so my the :mighty,” and the “strong.”
smallest speck of being -- call it a “life-unit” is an imperishable, an
ETERNAL MONAD. The Monad consists of an indissoluble
bond between SPIRIT and MATTER. (
Or to be precise, it is a “ray” of the ONE UNIVERSAL SPIRIT bonded to a “speck”
of PRIMORDIAL (and Eternal SUBSTANCE)
-- or MATTER.
simplest and least argumentative way to describe the difference between GOOD
and EVIL is to say that
1. GOOD is always constructive, universal,
impartial, and serves the whole of nature. It is always constructive and has always the potential of
seeing the “future” of any of its PROPOSED choices.
always unites selflessly with all others.
2. EVIL is always selfish, isolationist, careless of the needs and
rights of others, capricious, and argumentative. It destroys.
And is incapable of seeing the future of its choices. The “Evil” always is divisive and plots
to elevate its own singularity as opposed to universality.
of Man is as IMMORTAL as SPIRIT and PRIMORDIAL MATTER in each Monad, at
whatever level or stage of evolution it may be in. It is always at the balance point of Perception.
hand it perceives the GOOD and the UNIVERSAL BENEFIT of individual choice and
improvement. On the other hand it
perceives only the benefits that will se itself -- and it is careless of any
harm it might offer to others.
this might be of help.

Abstract thought is said to be "the
power of thinking of a thing
apart from its qualities"; but these qualities are the
phenomenal, the evident, and they make the most impression upon
our senses. They bewilder us, and they form a part of that trap
which Nature sets for us lest we discover her inmost secret and
rule her. More than this: our detention as individual components
of a race provides time for that and other races to go through
evolutionary experience slowly, provides long and repeated
chances for every soul to amend, to return, to round the curve of
evolution. In this Nature is most merciful, and even in the
darkness of the eighth sphere to which souls of spiritual
wickedness descend, her impulses provide opportunities of return
if a single responsive energy is left in the self-condemned soul.
An analogy of a children's story below to make an illustration of the above
as these "stories" seem most natural to us as a people and yet we
to be able to utilize them past a certain age and remain , perhaps , only as
"cute" or as "quaint" stories left over from some
previous time yet ,
somehow innately recognized by us as souls to be "good" enough tobe
our children over and over again.
Most of our Fairy Tales , it seems to us , appear to revolve around the
above most revealing paragraph (as given by Jasper Neimand) as to the Nature
of the Real Duty to be pursued by us.
As an example , the story of Rumplestiltskin , and the Queen( depending
which version one is familiar with} has to go through an EXACT naming
process in order to free her child (i.e. child , in a theosophical sense ,
may imply , our True nature) and the implication of PRECISION as having a
major role to play in the LIFE or DEATH of the Soul.) and the so-called
naming process representing , perhaps , each of our incarnations until , at
last and finally , the "Name" (last incarnation?)is found.
And this last representing the real maturity of Soul? where theory and
practice come together in a joyous bond that transcends all and embraces all
and are embraced by it and released at the same time.
(i.e. Queen being , one could surmise , representative of one's
in an equal sense , Kingly faculty ,[atma-buddhi , perhaps?] (sattva
or guna)the REAL determinator of the "puzzle" provided by the
characterization Rumplestiltskin (i.e. MAYA?) wherein a timeless struggle is
set in motion [Dual Truth?] without a CORRECT determination would lead to
utter tragedy yet redeemable over time through an increased progression of
increased resolution of the incorruptible Potentiality garnered by bitter
and\sad past experiences would lead yet again to that
under cyclic and karmic LAW and , who's to say that that particular
or even "King" would emerge triumphant and abolish all attachmentto
,correctly perceived , thereby truly making the re union with REALITY and
dis-union with illusion a very real success and therein ALL dwelt TRULY
happy ever after.
(see the end of the Voice of the Silence for this pronouncement)
So many other "Tales" seem to have a direct bearing on these Ancient
that , no doubt , one can begin to "SEE" vistas of meaning not
the surface in these "old" but ever new "children's"
