One of Evil's Favorite Places to Hide

Key Lesson: A man of good -- upon seeing evil in another person -- neither judges that evil, nor its unwitting instrument because he has seen such a darkness in himself, and agrees to die to it. Whereas a man of evil -- upon seeing evil in someone else can't help but judge that person... for evil is compelled to judge itself.

Consent to See What Lies Hidden

Just because we have the ability to judge others because they don't believe in what we do does not mean that what we believe in is true; in fact quite the opposite holds true: feeling compelled to act as the judge and jury of another for failing to exhibit some desirable characteristic or quality, proves the absence of that quality in ourselves.

It doesn't matter what you say you believe in; what you say is true or not amounts to nothing. To paraphrase and enhance a timeless idea: faith without acts is not only fruitless but, along with being the dangerous root of fanaticism, it is one of the dark seeds from out of which grows the evil of intolerance. Comparing the value of our ideals to those of others is not what it means to act truly, any more than the act of judging someone proves the worthiness of the judge.

The real purpose of this life -- and our place in it -- is to consent to see what is true...in spite of what it seems to cost us. See what lies hidden -- in yourself, in others, and in the world around you -- and for this awakening, by its light, not only will you realize the need to die to yourself, but you will also find the divine will that alone can help you to make it so.
