Evil Is Banal

We may think of evil as something terrible, but that extreme vision starts with a lack of understanding of our original nature. Evil lacks originality: it is banal and obvious, and obeys its programming without question.

Our original nature – pure consciousness – is also obvious when pointed out and realised, but it is free of programming. The banal mind sees this originality as a mystery, because banality has made itself so complex that it cannot see the wood for the trees; it’s so involved in the details that it doesn’t notice what’s important about the thing as a whole.

We are confused because we are ignorant of our true reality. Banality can only believe, which obscures direct experience of our original nature of consciousness.

This banality of evil started thousands of years ago, when we were enticed into believing in something ‘out there’ whileignoring the reality within, and we became separate and therefore lacked love.

Knowing the truth, we recognise a wolf in sheep’s clothing.

“By their fruit, you will recognise them” (Matthew 7:15)
By our fruit, we too will be recognised (Tony 9.35am 😉 )

We are free in the moment of seeing that we have become banal.
In that seeing, we remember our originality.
