Evil and Free Will

If there is evil, there is free will to win over it.  There is much less evil and injustice on the planet earth as compared to the vast spread of love and understanding. Yet,  it is more visible than good, love and understanding which makes us believe that there is evil all around us.

 

But evil is necessary. Without evil, free will is impossible and without free will there can be no growth,  no forward movement,  no chance for us to become humans. It is for evil only that we to stand in the face of evil and injustice and use our free will to defeat them. If there was no evil, where would we use this potent force?

 

Free will leads to enquiry and enquiry leads to realisation which in turn leads to changing what is not acceptable. Growth is possible only when there is scope for doing differently and freedom for not to tread the troden path.

 

Without evil, virtue cannot be known. Bad and good coexist. The progression has to be from bad to good, good to better and better to best.  It is evil that makes this possible. If there was no evil, this progression wouldn't be possible.

 

If we look around, we see growth, which is also called change. We have come a long way from being hunters to social animals who can live together, help each other. This happened because of free will to suppress evil.

 

Fortunately Evil can be defeated. This is pissible because of Love. Love is predominantly universal in all living beings, including the evil ones. There is no life without Love.  Love will always overcome evil, however all powerful it may seem to be.

 

So don't grudge evil or evil people. They need help, not condemnation.  It is because of them that we can use our free will and help them thereby helping ourselves.  We have to be thankful that evil lives in us, with us, around us to encourage and motivate us to rise to the higher realms of humanity.

My dear Cowboy,

 We all will like free will & hate evil but few get good will.Evil will kill us if we don't have skill & will to pull it down!!!..Facing evil is a thrill!!!..

 Free will is like sweet & it must be within limits.

 If love will overcome the evil then we can close down all police station,courts & establish love centres!!!..

 Those who are evil enjoy life more than who follow moral/free will.

 Thuriyodhna & Ravana enjoyed their life for several decades in City where as Pandavas & Ram spent several decades in forest.

 It applies even now.Those who are evil,corrupt,cheet,loot enjoy life more than those who are honest,straight farward.

 I am fighting evil for the last 15 Yrs facing lot of court cases,financial crisis  ete but the evil person enjoying luxery life with actresses.

Evil is also part of life. If there is no villian - no hero.

We seem to have plenty of heroes around. Does that mean that there are plenty of villains/villainism I wonder. Definitely lessening the quantum must be helpful to all and everyone, I hope.

It will be really helpful and idealistic but unfortunately evil cannot be eradicated. It is only through evil that we realise the value of virtue. If there was no evil, there would have been no virtue also.
