Gaining a lot of ground in the New Age Movement is an ideology that evil is a prerequisite in this world ‘as a means to good’, that there can be no light without the darkness. This is a deception. The ‘Evil Is Necessary’ motto is a bastardisation of the original teaching that has been misrepresented, and is a big mind control technique to justify what is going on in the world and get people to stand down and accept it. Hence they will not take any action that will create real and positive change. It’s about control and keeping people down from where they want to go in consciousness. It is not about freedom, it is anti-freedom. One of these false teachings being put out there is the false notion of polarity. The belief that has been propagated that an extreme imbalance (evil) needs to be present is a perversion of a natural law to do with balance and rhythm and a shifting and blending of energy (Law of Rhythm and Compensation) that DOES have to do with polarity. Polarity exists, there are sides or polar aspects of consciousness, which is One Thing at some unified level of consciousness. In deeper spiritual teachings the Law of Compensation is about polarities within consciousness: Yang, masculine energy, and Yin, feminine energy, active versus passive, solar/lunar, dominant versus submissive, left brain/right brain, analytical versus intuitive, light/dark. But for these polarities to exist and for us to be balanced in our lives, it doesn’t require going into one polarity and staying there in a total extreme, which is what tolerance of evil is. It does not mean we have to experience the depths of evil to know and recognise goodness. It doesn’t work like that. Only a person with self-hatred, devoid of self-love, would say they needed to experience evil to know what goodness is. There’s no self-respect and much stupidity in being a subject or a slave of evil. It's a fashionable attitude to wrongdoing to say “I’ll take the lesser of the two evils”. There’s no such thing as less evil. It’s either evil or it’s not. It’s one polarity, and it doesn’t need to exist for balance. We shouldn’t ever embrace evil regardless of what some New Agers will tell you, we should be eradicating it. The deception about evil having a necessary role came also from another false notion, the notion that there is ‘no such thing as free will’, which is yet another symptom of right-brain imbalance when you have the feminine consciousness in the extreme without the anchoring of the masculine. Those who dismiss the notion of free will tend to be extreme religionists rather than people who are very left-brained. Theirs is a religious notion that whatever happens is preordained, or God’s will. Or they tend to be those in the New Age community. These have bought into the notion that there is no free will and have said so outright. The non-existence of free will makes it very opportune to not assume responsibility for one's own actions, and thus be a party to tolerating evil. It’s another cop-out and a total lie. Short of automatic bodily functions such as breathing, we are fully in control of choosing what we will or will not do unto others at all times and in all places. Evil is a choice, a choice to allow it to run amok in the world or wipe it out. As only evil would try to convince anyone of its existence being NECESSARY for it's a scam to justify sitting and doing NOTHING in its presence. The false notion of polarity that’s being spread to keep this New Age deception in place is also being propagated through another false notion - Karma. New Agers are justifying the acceptance of evil by saying a person is probably being paid back for something they did in a past life. The caste system is full of ‘that’s how karma works’. They can ignore what happens to people low on the totem pole of society and let all iniquities continue. A cop-out. Not getting involved is just allowing evil to continue unchecked and run amok in our world. When a child gets abused it is not because of karmic debt being piled on to him, it is because of someone else's abuse of free will and choice to engage in evil behaviour he had no right to engage in. How karma really works is through natural law. Behave immorally and you and your society become more enslaved. Behave with goodwill and you and your society become freer. Karma works on a whole societal level as well as individual. The first part of the word coward is cow which is a farm animal led to slaughter.
Don't strike yourself out
The symbolism of the three wise monkeys conjures up the strategy that each monkey had one defect but the two other senses worked. The deaf monkey used his sight to observe all around him thus judge evil actions and using the medium of his voice report them to the second monkey who was blind. All the second monkey had to do without needing to see was repeat what he heard to the third monkey who was mute and as he couldn't talk the message was lost at the end of the line, all he could do was observe what fate would befall the unfortunate one and sit and watch it happen. What a way of genius the gods had in shutting them up, each one assigned the job of not interrupting the bad dream where everyone lies in tombs. In Japan the monkey has become a negative symbol, if you give someone there a monkey as a gift it means you wish them dead. The proverbial principle of the three monkeys that see, hear and speak no evil seems to point to someone who doesn't want to be involved in a situation. No rest for the life-shy. Turning a blind eye to what 'is' - because it's perceived to be that way, it's 'just the way life is, it's just the way things are' - is to LIVE evil (or rather not live and just be struck out). How bleak. A Fourth WISE monkey should come in here and say Live No Evil. Reverse the word 'evil' and you get 'live'. Live and let live. You are All That Is and Ever Will Be and Everything and Everywhere and then some. Open your eyes and listen and say something, for Heaven's sake. It's not - and damn it never should be - 'just the way life is, just the way things are'. Harsh words. Thinking this is damning yourself off from the Universe.
