To Summon the Light
I don't feel the evil. Nevertheless, is it possible to summon the Light based on some kind of reliance on general evil?
If I still am not yet in the revelation of my real character, which they say I am supposed to be, then there is no need to play the games of hatred. But one should always long for good, because the evil is present. So how does one discover it? Through longing for good, I will be closer to the Light.
According to the simple acts, the Light will illuminate and I will discover the truth that I exist in evil. My actions must be aimed only on summoning the Light, which will show me who I am, show me that I am evil. Afterwards the Light will show me that I must get rid of the evil and also show me what is the good that I must reach. Thus, we go from state to state.
One doesn't need to consider the state itself, to search, to feel it, or to consider all the kinds of discernments. On the contrary, as much as you despise the state, thus it will benefit. It is preferable to run around like a little kid who is constantly looking for the innovation. Don't try to understand the state. "It is not the wise who learns," but only by longing for the Light to change us. Thus one advances quickly.
