“Evil is like a shadow – it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it.”
Shakti Gawain, teacher and author (b. 1948)
I love this positive way of removing evil – it seems much of the way people combat one evil deed is with another and we all know where that gets us.
