The Absence Of Light (Unconsciously Being) depicts:

A personality that loses touch with its soul, that loses the source of its Light, is a personality that has become capable of what we call evil, as represented by the blackness.

What we call evil is the absence of light – of love, in all cases. When we speak poetically of Light we associate it with purity, insight, and Divine inspiration, however this type of Light is not merely poetical. It is real.

A soul can find it difficult to walk the way of Light through the course of an incarnation. It can find that learning to live In Light is a difficult sojourn. Through the choices that it makes while it is incarnate upon the Earth – the choice of anger instead of forgiveness, for example, or condemnation instead of understanding – a soul accumulates negative karma. As it leaves its body, it remains enveloped with the quality of Light that it acquired through the choices that it made while it was upon the Earth. When that soul has to create another personality, it will have to create a personality that is drawn from this well. Therefore, it will create a personality of more limitations.

A personality with limitations of consciousness will find what we call evil more attractive than will one with a more expanded awareness. The temptation to walk that way will be strong for such a personality. All souls are tempted, but an individual with limitations of consciousness will find it more attractive to walk into the magnetic field of fear because it would not recognize fear for what it is. It would accept it as something else, as something that is normal to Life.

How we understand evil, therefore, is very significant. Evil needs to be understood for what it is: the dynamic of the absence of Light. It is not something that one should prepare to battle, to run from or to outlaw. Understanding evil as the absence of Light automatically requires that we reach for this thing called Light.


What is the appropriate response to evil?

The remedy for an absence is a presence. Evil is an absence and, therefore, it cannot be healed with an absence. By hating evil, or one who is engaged in evil, you contribute to the absence of Light, and not to its presence. Hatred of evil does not diminish evil, it increases it.

The absence of Light causes the personality to suffer. There is pain. When you hate, you bring the same suffering upon yourself. Hatred of evil affects the one who hates. It makes him or her a hateful person, a person who also has absented himself or herself from the Light.

The above is an excerpt from The Seat Of The Soul by Gary Zukav
