Evil is a mere appearance. It is not a reality. It is an illusion. Evil exists to glorify good. Good and evil are not two independent things or entities. They are the two sides of' the same coin.
An evil man is a saint of the future. Transmute evil into good through reflection. Out of evil often good cometh. There is neither absolute good nor absolute evil in this phenomenal world. Good and evil are relative terms.
Behold the good alone in everything. Develop again and again the faculty of seeing only good in all happenings and persons. Destroy the evil habit of seeing defects in others.
