‘Let us suppose you have been unfortunate enough to swallow some poison. The poison has devastating effects on you, but as soon as the doctor gives you a powerful antidote you recover. Because the antidote restores you to your normal state, its effects seem less dramatic to you than those of the poison. But the antidote is even more powerful because it overcame the poison. And in the same way the antidote annihilates poison, love eradicates hatred, light eradicates darkness, and good eradicates evil.
Because we find good agreeable, we find its presence normal and instead devote all our attention to evil since it is evil that creates discord. But if you go and ask evil what it thinks of good, it will complain about the beatings it had. Ask the dark spirits what happens when a spirit of light comes by: they scream and take fright. It’s not the spirits of light who take fright! To understand the power of good you need to ask evil.’
