WHAT IS THE PSYCHOLOGY OF EVIL
- Do evil people feel guilty?
- Do evil impulses an evil person make?
- Is there a way to heal the world from evil?
The issue with this topic is that "Evil" is a totally subjective term. For instance, many religious people believe that people of other religions (or
no religions) should be killed, and some even take this so literally that they achieve this action. To me, that's a pretty evil action. To them, it's
perfectly justified and necessary.
You say the topic of evil is subjective, perhaps it is, or can be
BUT my question was "WHAT IS THE PSYCHOLOGY OF EVIL?"
I would define evil as FALSE AUTHORITY. Any "god" outside your very self, is a FALSE AUTHORITY. Think of any "evil" in the world, and you can trace it
back to the desire of some EGO to push their self-appointed Authority of another person. You gave one example of this yourself. False Authority is the
EVIL in the world. The soul of every human being is pure light but people don't know who the really are. The main reason: they labor under then
influence of False Authority which tell them they have no value.
This is a LIE, a falsehood, an untruth. We be BELIEVE that LIE because we are socially conditioned to submit to Authority. Thus we obey, in this way
False Authority tells us how we SHOULD feel and SHOULD act. Often, without thinking, we just follow the path that is set before us, thinking that our
only way forward is what we see with our natural eyes. However, when we see with Spiritual Eyes a new way opens up before us. We can relinquish our
"need" for TOXIC EMOTIONSand we can let go of our PSYCHIC PAIN. Healing is availble if we open our mind to receiving it.
Anguish, Pain, SUFFERING...
These are merely the expression of emotion that result from submitting to False Authority. It is all about what we tell ourselves. Either we rise
about our programming, or we don't.
Joy, PEACE, and LOVE...
These are the natural state of our Eternal Soul, but in a world of False Authority we follow other people and so believe as the do, that this truth is
the lie. This is the up-side down world we live in, but the power to change it rest within each one of us. We can suffer though life, or we can change
our mind and end the suffering. It all has to do with what you tell yourself and therefore what you believe. Happiness is entirely up to
You may not change the world by dropping one or two dysfunctional beliefs, but then you might. If you are going to heal the world, it must start with
your very SELF, with your TOXIC EMOTION and your PSYCHIC PAIN.
