Good and evil there always are in the world. Many forget there is any evil — at least they try to forget; and when evil comes upon them, they are overwhelmed by it and feel bitter.
There are others who deny that there is any evil at all and consider everything good.
That also is a weakness; that also proceeds from a fear of evil. If something is evil-smelling, why sprinkle it with rose water and call it fragrant?
Yes, there are good and evil in the world — God has put evil in the world. But you do not have to whitewash Him.
Why there is evil is none of your business. Please have faith and keep quiet.
When my Master, Shri Ramakrishna fell ill, a Brahmin suggested to him that he apply his tremendous mental power to cure himself.
He said that if my Master would only concentrate his mind on the diseased part of the body, it would heal.
Shri Ramakrishna answered, "What! Bring down the mind that I've given to God to this little body!"
He refused to think of body and illness. His mind was continually conscious of God; it was dedicated to Him utterly. He would not use it for any other purpose.
This craving for health, wealth, long life, and the like — the so-called good — is nothing but an illusion.
To devote the mind to them in order to secure them only strengthens the delusion.
We have these dreams and illusions in life, and we want to have more of them in the life to come, in heaven.
More and more illusion. Resist not evil. Face it! You are higher than evil.
