Thoughts #1

Good & Evil

Good and Evil are useful human concepts when dealing with things (& people) who are inherantly 'wrong'.
~x~ )O( ~x~
In Paganism there is no concept like the Christian Devil, evil does not come from a supernatural force.
(Thats not to say that there are no spiritual forces or entities that are not harmful to humans, or that activly work against humanity- but these are not the source of 'evil')
~x~ )O( ~x~
I believe it is a matter of balance. When there is balance/stability we say 'good'. When the balance is upset we say 'evil'.
~x~ )O( ~x~
A simplified example is;
It takes sun and rain to make crops grow.
In the correct balance the crop is healthy and the environment is stable.
Too much sun withers the crops and, eventualy makes a desert.
Too much rain rots the crop, waterlogs the soil and, in extreams, causes flood and destruction.
~x~ )O( ~x~
I believe the same basic principle is true for humans as well.
~x~ )O( ~x~
I reject the idea that 'evil' has to exist for there to be 'good' in the world.
An extream example of that kind of thinking is;
Does 1 woman have to be raped for another to know love? No, the idea is absured.
~x~ )O( ~x~
It means there has to be balance of forces, of Mind, Body and Spirit, for there to be 'good'.
When these forces are out of balance, then you have 'evil'.
~x~ )O( ~x~
These are just my thoughts on the subject.
I'd be interested in any comments you may have on the subject.
