The Pessimist And The Optimist
Pessimism: a belief that this world is as bad as it could be, or that evil will ultimately prevail over good.
Optimism: that this world is the best of all possible worlds, and that good must ultimately prevail over evil in the universe.
Two paths; the maintenance of good (positive) or evil (negative).
A pessimist thinks that evil will prevail because they do not know what good is, and will forever be negative about everything. Bordering on narcissism, they lack empathy for others; any affection is based on sentimentality.
An optimist will prevail because they know the nature of goodness, which is the light of pure consciousness of within beings.
