There has been a lot of talk lately about “evil”, “terrorism” and the ability to abolish or kill evil.
Evil, like Goodness, is immortal. It resides in thoughts, beliefs, choices, and actions. Fighting the symptoms and outcroppings of evil is futile.
To “kill” evil, we must embody its opposite. Embody Goodness. Embody Love. Embody Peace. Embody Compassion. Embody Grace. Embody Joy. Embody Acceptance (notice I did not say tolerance…to tolerate is to endure. To accept is to allow something to be as it is without attempting to change it).
One thought, belief, and action at a time.
