Evil Playing God
A new way to order society.
Evil looks for new ways to keep us in confusion.
Due to confusion, we reincarnated into a world of confusion, where Mara (demonic mentality) lies in ambush to take advantage of our confusion. This is the situation we are in – and this is the very reason to realise the state we are in.
Due to apathy, and lack of skill and understanding, we can be exploited. Evil will take advantage of any situation, to restructure society so that it can feed off it. In this way, evil plays God.
Don’t wander, don’t wander, place mindfulness on guard;
Along the road of distraction, Mara lies in ambush.
Mara is this mind, clinging to likes and dislikes.
So look into the essence of this magic, free from dualistic fixation.
Realise that your mind is unfabricated primal purity.
There is no buddha elsewhere; look at your own face.
There is nothing else to search for, rest in your own place.
Non-meditation is spontaneous perfection, so capture the royal seat.
