Essenceism as an instrument for analyzing evil
Since evil has been functioning in our civilization for thousands of years, and since our world is not getting better because of it, this fact should lead to a deep analysis of our situation. Science always investigates the causes of all phenomena, so it would be good for it to make its research methods available to understand evil as the cause of human suffering on our planet.
It is for this reason that essenceism has set itself the task of examining evil and its causes using methods similar to scientific. Of course, it is difficult to use mainstream science to address metaphysical problems, but you can adapt some scientific research instruments to explore this sphere of human activity.
After presenting the Original Being in the first book (God is not of this world) about my analytical system and the ideas related to its existence in the second book (We are of this world), I proceed in this third one (Evil is from this world) to a detailed analysis of the causes of the current bad condition of our civilization. At the beginning, essenceism confirms the existence of good as the heart of the operation and existence of the Original Being. Now it is moving to the worse side of human existence, i.e. the phenomenon of evil. So in the next chapters topics such as the genesis of evil and its personal form will be analyzed. Negative phenomena resulting from them that destroy human personality and the state of our civilization will also be presented.
Moving away from good
Imagine the beginning of creating all things. There are no people, only the Original Being. Maybe there are also with Him spiritual beings called angels, and that's it. At the same time, all laws and principles exist in the Personality of Godhead. Essenceism treats them as good. Therefore, the work of the Creator is a concrete good, most likely created for a purpose.
There can be no such thing as evil in this situation. It is not in His Personality, it is not in His laws, nor has it come into existence in His plans. The reality prepared by him is therefore the good itself.
Finally, the time comes for people to appear. God creates them in His image and likeness. They are to be like Him on their scale. Such good as Him. They have no knowledge of evil, for such an event would contradict what the Creator had planned.
Something, however, can happen if human beings who develop divine-like qualities do not keep to their designated development process. Is something threatening them? Yes, there is a threat. The Creator, of course, knows this, that is, He is in control of the borders of his work. He describes the condition beyond them as death. This is something that ceases to exist for Him. Essenceism does not hesitate to call it evil.
The all-creations in universe drives the forces of life: development forces, including biological mechanisms, the expansion of the environment, the need to pass on life. For the latter, that is, the transfer of life from the Creator, a new, greatest force is needed, which people inherit from the Creator. It is a force of love that is the most powerful of all forces. It was she who caused the creation of all things, including man. It is more powerful than the force of life, because it is actually the force of love that comes from the force of life and has been subject to it from the very beginning. (We know about this from daily experience).
If God creates someone in His own image and likeness, then even immature and imperfect people must give the strength of love so that they will know its full range: child, marital and parental love. Perfection cannot be achieved without experiencing these three types of love.
The imperfect people developing on the basis of life force, therefore, inherit from their Creator the strength of love and must incorporate it into their lives. But beware. The power of love improperly directed can destroy the life force and lead to the death of developing first people. Therefore, it is necessary to add a blockade of the wrong direction of this force until people are ready to control it.
So you have to educate people to direct the power of love correctly. God is perfect and cannot act at a lower level than His own perfection. He must use tutors for His children, i.e. angels. That is why He created them because He knew that they would be needed by people during their development to perfection. The wisest of angels, the archangel Lucifer, therefore begins the mission of raising the first people. He and the first learned people know well that the right direction of the force of love must be protected. It's the only danger which threatens them.
And what was next? And unfortunately it happened that the power of love was used in the wrong direction. There was a departure from good. That was the beginning of evil. Something was created that was unknown to God. For this we know them well, because the first people participated in its creation and gave us its heritage.
Although natural evil in the form of various cataclysms is very visible, it is not the subject of analysis of this study. Essenceism is about evil, which can be generally described as moral evil. In fact, it has nothing to do with adventure anomalies. Of course, you can accuse a man that disrupted our planet and indirectly caused numerous cataclysms, but it is not a perverse evil or violates human dignity.
For centuries of human civilization we have been dealing with bad people and the effects of their activities. It has not always been possible to identify a typical evil man, but this epithet can certainly be blamed on many criminals and genocides active in our history. The concept of evil man also includes numerous political leaders, sometimes business people and even religious activists. Most often they differ in their degree of awareness of what they are doing. The worst of them are those who know well that they are doing evil, and yet they still create it. It is true that there has always been a group of people who evaluated these bad people in a different way than others, but this is a phenomenon that requires separate analysis. The fact is that this situation is due to the lack of a clear definition of what good is and what evil is.
It is for this reason that in the first part of this study, good has been clearly defined as a condition and action derived from the Original Being. This allows us to better assess what the different forms of evil are, ranging from the acts of petty criminals to the great criminals. Such a starting point for the definition of evil is necessary to understand how different its assessment can be among people. There is no doubt that every day people judge what is good and what is bad. Unfortunately, in the absence of the objective standard of these two phenomena, there is the possibility of falsifying the truth about evil, which leads to chaos in assessing human behavior.
Therefore, it is necessary to understand the basic criteria used to assess evil. This is one of the main goals of this study. An even more fundamental need is to understand the origin of evil, i.e. its source. Due to the fact that evil is assessed on the basis of human knowledge, it is worth making this knowledge the most appropriate. The fact that the state of evil is judged by the people themselves indicates that it is best to rely on emotionless scientific analysis as the closest to objective. Previous studies of essenceism have shown us to carry evil in the form of fallen nature. For this reason, there is difficulty and lack of objectivity in assessing the evil that surrounds us. I remind you that the previous parts of the study on essenceism pointed to the simultaneous presence in each person of two different opposing natures: original and fallen from two different source personalities. The purpose of this study is to indicate, by means of essenceism, a personal source of evil, the effects of its action and ways of its elimination.
Evil versus good
In previous studies of essenceism it has been shown that the Creator should be the Absolute creating only good, beauty and love, and be the source of perfect intelligence and wisdom. Therefore, good is the permanent state of the Original Being, the only one in which He exists. From this follows the logical conclusion that if God, having the abovementioned attributes, created the universe, there could be no place in it for evil. Therefore, the evil known to us could never exist in His Personality and of course in the concept of the universe. Such an absolute and perfect the Original Being could not simply create it, so He has nothing to do with it.
Going even further from the basic qualities of the Original Being, it must be stated that evil arose completely outside the law and principles existing in Him. Therefore, it could not reach Him as a recognizable phenomenon. Moreover, God not only never took them as a real state, but He also receives them nowadays. He just didn't know them, He doesn't know them and he will never know. Such a statement seriously changes the typical image of most religions of the omniscient God they know. Meanwhile, by completely separating evil from the Personality of the Original Being, we obtain a "pure" Creator, that is, an absolutely good and perfect Heavenly Father. Unfortunately, people have been modifying God in their own way for centuries, although most often they have no idea who He really is.
That is why it is necessary to explain once again what evil is. It is definitely a departure from good. Based on the analysis of the primeval reality that is attributed to the work of the Original Being, evil can be briefly defined as what should not be at all, neither in Him nor in His universe. In this case, it's not about weakening God's omnipotence and His omniscience. If God predicted evil, it would be known to Him from that moment, and thus would be part of His Consciousness. However, this cannot be the case. Evil is a special exception. This is not ordinary quality or phenomenon, which is many in the universe. This is a kind of anti-reality, i.e. a singularity that is absolutely beyond God, i.e. a state that does not exist for Him. I know that people have a very poor idea of God and His attributes. However, it is worth considering that the Original Being exists beyond of time and space, while our assessments result from the position of existence in space-time. This creates a situation that our point of view can be completely different from His.
In addition, our current understanding of God is not only the faith that has been shaped for centuries, but is also the result of our subjective assessment that evil is part of His existence. Our personality damaged by evil, that is, our nature destroyed by evil, "taught" us a picture of God in which we are burdened by the knowledge of evil. In this way, we subconsciously accept the wrong point of view preventing us from correctly assessing it. This main point of view was inherited by the main monotheistic religions from the statement of the biblical Serpent that if Adam and Eve listened to him, they would know good and evil as God would. Unfortunately it was a lie. The main critic of Satan, Jesus Christ, because He thought that this enemy of humanity from the beginning was a liar and there is no truth in him at all. These statements above were taken from Genesis 3, 5-6 and the Gospel of St. John 8.44.
To examine the existence of evil, I not only analyzed "Bible" but also "Koran", read the books of "Vedas", reviewed "Tipitaka" and a number of other recognized religious books such as "In the Light of Truth", "The Divine Principle", "Book of Knowledge", "Book of Uranti" and even the message "Sai Baba speaks to the West" I realized that in these books evil is most often treated as strangeness, as something burdening our personality and unwanted in our living space. In general, you can summarize the analyzes of evil posted there as a departure from good.
All the above arguments lead to the conclusion that where there is evil, there is no God. This means that He is also not in our present reality on Earth. This statement is very similar to that of atheists. However, my study is only about the absence of God in the bad environment of our Earth, and not at all. Essenceism strongly claims that it must exist in a sphere outside of time and space. Many followers of different religions, when asked where God is, answer that He is everywhere. However, when we ask them if He is also in hell, we get the answer that He cannot be there. This is because these believers treat hell as something existing outside of God. In their opinion, hell is the place where Satan reigns. However, when we combine this belief with the assertions of Jesus Christ that Satan is "the master of this world", we get the not-so-popular conclusion that our Earth is hell. This religious argument suggests that there is no God on our Earth, which is likely to coincide with our daily experiences.
In a world full of evil, in which billions of people suffer from injustice, sickness, harm, wars and other misfortunes, Someone who is absolutely good cannot be present. In the world of "Hitlers", "Stalins" and similar criminals whose presence indicates the universality of Evil (in capital and lowercase), there cannot be the Creator of the Heavenly Kingdom intended for us, i.e. the perfect world. The state of our reality rather indicates the presence of an anti-god, i.e. a completely opposite being, called Satan. This topic is discussed in more detail in all my essenceism books and on my website at www.istota.net.
So, I definitely think that there is no place in our world for absolutely good Original Being. Of course, there is only His indirect presence in the form of Divine Laws and Principles, which in a sense other than the Christian religion, I call God's Providence. At the same time, the trace of His direct presence is our original nature, which is the good side of our personality. Thanks to this nature, we have a chance to distinguish good from evil. Most people feel the state of our world as a permanent struggle between good and evil. According to essenceism, this is our reality.
