"Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the Peace of God."
~A Course in Miracles~

Evil exists only in the physical mind. This is in reality, is the last place anyone would want to find evil, but truth be told, it is here in the fertile soil of the physical mind, is where it was born and flourishes. Sad, but true.

Evil is a belief rooted in fear. Fear is an illusion born in the moment of the ego's belief in separation. The belief in separation is the ego's assumption that it is separate from God thus promoting the tenet that we are alone and disconnected from not only God, but each other.

The worldly mind attaches itself to the idea of evil to avoid assuming responsibility for making unsupportive choices and to have a focus for blame. Blame is another grand lie. "The devil made me do it.", "Satan caused the holocaust." are excuses.

A false and irrational belief in fear and the many masks it wears is the actual cause. FDR once stated, "The only thing we have to fear is fear itself." This statement serves only in giving power to an illusion thus making it "appear" real in its expression.

In Truth, we must understand that we have nothing to fear. We come to this understanding by choosing the Holy Spirit the voice for God, as our teacher, and it is by the lessons we recieve through the Holy Spirit that we come to embrace Love as the one and only Truth.

"The problem is not that we don't
believe in the power of Love. The
problem is that we don't believe in
the power of Love alone."

~Marianne Williamson~

If you are implying that there isn't a "third party", such as a Satan, etc.... Then I understand where you are coming from as opposed to the belief that any evil we encounter is "self-perceived".
I am just confused as to which angle you are coming from... ??
Again, I thank you for your clarification.

I am not, in any way, trying to stir up trouble. I am simply asking you how to explain this premise to a child when they are new to this world, and being abused...

"The worldly mind attaches itself to the idea of evil to avoid assuming responsibility for making unsupportive choices and to have a focus for blame. Blame is another grand lie. "

So the child is wrong for blaming the adult for the misuse of power in that situation? Should the burden of blame be placed on that child... for being in that situation in the first place?

I am simply asking for your perspective on this scenario... I agree with the idea of owning your actions, but like any other "ideal", there is never black and white, only shades of grey.
I can see how this may apply to the abuser, but what wisdom do we give the child?
I thank you for insights, and mean only to discuss this topic, not debate the right or wrongness of your position.
Thank you.
