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'.

These are just my thoughts on the subject.
I'd be interested in any comments you may have on the subject.
