Effects on constant & intense concentration upon Evil - Haunted by the wickedness attributed to my enemies

Maha Bhava - Tue, 22 Nov 2005 15:08:19 +0530
"The effects which follow the constant and intense concentration upon evil are always disastrous. Those who crusade, not for God in themselves, but against the demons in others, never succeed in making the world better ... No man can concentrate his attention on evil, or even the idea of evil, and remain unaffected. To be more against the demon than for Godliness is exceedingly dangerous. Every crusader is apt to go mad. He is haunted by the wickedness which he attributes to his enemies; it becomes sort of a part of him."

-- Aldous Huxley

For a long time I 've suffred from the demons of evil which have made my life hell. crying.gif

Recently however I've seen the error of my ways and decided to give up this path entirely. rolleyes.gif

Tis no good to go after the rot in others when your own heart is not in a pure state. cool.gif
