Regardless 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
ASPECT OF 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.”
The 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.
and least argumentative way to describe the difference between
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
The “Good” always unites selflessly with all others.
2. EVIL is always selfish, isolationist, carelessof
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
toelevate its own
singularity as opposed to universality.
The Mind 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
On one hand it perceives the GOOD and the UNIVERSAL
BENEFIT of individual
choice and improvement. On the other handit
perceives only the benefits
that will se itself -- and it is carelessof
any harm it might offer to
I hope 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
which Nature sets for us lest we discover her inmost secretand
rule her. More than this: our detention as individual components
race provides time for that and other races to go through
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
wickedness descend, her impulses provide opportunities of return
if a single responsive energy is left in the self-condemned soul.
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 don't seem
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 to be told to
our children over and over again.
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
of the Real Duty to be pursued by us.
As an example , the story
of Rumplestiltskin , and the Queen( depending on
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
representing , perhaps , each of our incarnations until , at
finally , the "Name" (last incarnation?)is found.
And this last
representing the real maturity of Soul? where theory and
together in a joyous bond that transcends all and embraces all
embraced by it and released at the same time.
(i.e. Queen being
, one could surmise , representative of one's "Queenly or
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
set in motion [Dual Truth?] without a CORRECT determination would lead
utter tragedy yet redeemable over time through an increased progression
increased resolution of the incorruptible Potentiality garnered by
and\sad past experiences would lead yet again to
that Same situation
under cyclic and karmic LAW and , who's to say
that that particular "Queen"
or even "King" would emerge triumphant and
abolish all attachment to MAYA
,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 Truths.
that , no doubt ,
one can begin to "SEE" vistas of meaning not apparent on
the surface in
these "old" but ever new "children's" stories.
