All has its beginning & end, except Light that has the infinite power. It is immortal and passes through any kind of darkness. It means that Evil, being in its essence the best engine for growth & development, is limited. It may cause the deepest chaos, it may bring the worst sufferings, but its destructive impact has an expiration date written clearly in the Divine Nature of Time. An earthquake is a good example for this phenomenon. It lasts for seconds but the effect may endure for years. Does it mean that the essence of Evil is an impulse? If it is so, should we comprehend passions that lead us as seeds of Evil bringing destruction to the world and how much indeed a human being might participate in the Divine Chaos of Being?
Another strange thing is the fact that, as a rule, no memory is kept about darkness for long. Witnesses of dreadful events & calamities parish sooner or later, taking their recollection with them and only silence is left instead of cries of horror & tears. Places keep the negative energy for sometimes, but then it is renewed with a burst of fresh currents. Our Creator is the greatest Optimist ever! He always reminds us of the main goal of creation: to spread the Divine Light all around.
PS. By the way, if we read the word ‘evil’ back to front, it will become ‘live’. Funny, isn’t it?
