Hi fratres,

I've been pondering on this question recently and this question may seem philosophical in nature. But I'm also interested in learning about mystical traditions or explanations in regards to the following questions.

1. Where does "evil" come from?
2. Why is there the duality between "good" and "evil" and not more?
3. Why does "good" seem to be the stronger force over "evil" in the cosmos?
4. Why does evil seem to have a stronger hold over the world(Malkuth) may be compared to higher dimensions of consciousness?
5. Why did the Gods, Cherubims, Angels, Ascended Masters choose to be "good" over "evil"?

From what I've learned, "The road to hell is paved with 'good' intentions". This means most people even those who are evil have the innate desire to do "good". Even Beelzebub had a blue flame for his followers even though he was demon. Is it may be inherent in nature for "good" to have dominance over evil? or Is evil just the "absence" of good?

I had an OBE some years ago where I stood somewhere and saw a group of people flying towards us. Everyone started running away. I asked what was happening. Someone whispered to me those were "demons" coming. I started running away? After flying for a few minutes I stood somewhere and this entity approached me. He asked me why I ran away when I saw them. I responded "Someone said you're a demon". He responded but he hasn't hurt anyone. Someone standing next to me said "He's trying to say the end justifies the means." I simply replied "Being a demon is about awakening the consciousness in ego." He gave me this pensive look. I later woke up.

I've been thinking about this experience lately and will be happy to hear other thoughts and ideas on this.

Shukran,
frater

"Let us make (the androgyne) Adam." Another and altogether different interpretation and meaning has been given of these words by the learned of former times and is as follows: They apply them as spoken by ministering angels (the Elohim) who, endowed with a knowledge both of the past, the present and future (mahamanvantaras), foresaw that (the androgyne) Adam would (eventually) fall (when separated into male female sexes) and therefore they opposed his creation.

Furthermore, at the moment that the Schekinah or creative (sexual) Logos (in Malkuth) said to the Holy One (Binah): "Let us make Adam" the angels Aza and Azael objected and said: Why create Adam since thou foreseest that he will (eventually) sin and break thy law (of chastity), along with the woman (genitalia) who will be formed from the passive light called darkness, as HaAdam (the brain) from the active light? Then spoke the Schekinah and said in reply to them: Through woman (genitalia), against whom ye object, shall ye yourselves (as dhiani-bodisattvas) fall and lose your glory and state, as it is written:

"And the children of Elohim saw the daughters of Adam were fair and they took them wives of all which they chose" (Genesis 6: 2).

Said the students to Rabbi Simeon: Rabbi! were not Aza and Azael correct in saying that Adam (the brain) through the woman (genitalia) would sin and transgress?

To this remark Rabbi Simeon replied: It was on this account that the Schekinah said unto them: "Before accusing them ye should see to it that ye are better and stronger and purer than they. Adam will fall and sin (fornicate) by one woman (his genitalia) alone; ye will (adulterate) fall and be seduced by many. Adam will repent, but ye will become obdurate and hardened in your sin." Said the students again to Rabbi Simeon, since sexual desires and impulses were the cause of sin and transgression, wherefore do they exist?

Said Rabbi Simeon: If the Holy One had not created a spirit of good that emanates from the active light, and spirit of evil that emanates from the passive light or darkness, Adam would have been a neutral ignorant kind of being unable to distinguish and contrast things essential to mental growth and spiritual development and progress; therefore was (the androgyne) Adam created dual in nature, endowed with sexual feelings (Eve) and rational functions (brain-Adam), from the right and orderly discharge of which, or otherwise, he enjoys or suffers, as it is written:

"See I have set before thee this day, life and good, death and evil" (Deuteronomy 30: 15).

Why then, said the students, was (the androgyne) Adam thus created with a power of choosing and determining his future (by dividing his genitalia into two sexes)? Would it not have been better to have formed him (androgyne forever) with no (sexual) desires and inclinations except for the just, the true and good, and thus have avoided becoming the cause of such disturbance in heavenly regions?

Said Rabbi Simeon in reply: It was necessary that (the androgyne) Adam should be created thus in order that the good law might operate and be an incentive to spiritual progress and development. Now the law in its jurisdiction operates in two ways in the dispensation of justice, promising rewards to the righteous and decreeing punishment to the guilty and sinful; therefore, is it written, "Verily there is a reward for the righteous and punishment for the wicked," and (the androgyne) Adam must therefore be created and adapted for the reception of these (two) different effects, viz., rewards and penalties (good and evil). The Divine Being desires that good should prevail throughout the world, as the scripture saith:

"He hath not created the earth (Malkuth) in vain, he formed it to be inhabited" (Isaiah 45: 18).

Furthermore, the good law is as it were a judicial robe to the Schekinah, and if Adam had been created without moral tendencies and with an inclination liable to be diverted to evil as well as good, then would the Schekinah have been like a poor Adam (dressed with lunar rags) without (solar) garb or raiment (astral, mental and causal solar bodies). The one who commits sin (fornicates, that is, reaches the orgasm of the beasts during the sexual act) despoils in a manner the Schekinah of its robe and incurs punishment and condemnation; as on the other hand, the one who observes and practices (sexual transmutation and) the (10) commandments of the law, is accounted as meritorious as one who arrays the Schekinah with a robe or garment (solar bodies).
This truth is symbolized by the garment with fringes or borders (zizith) as it is written:

"For that is his covering only, it is his raiment for his skin when he shall sleep" (Exodus 22: 27) referring to the Schekinah.
When anyone (during the sexual act) offers up an insincere prayer, destroying angels pursue after it, as saith the scripture:
"All her persecutors have overtaken her" (Lamentations 1: 3), therefore we pray that

"He (the Holy Spirit) being full of compassion, forgives our sins (by means of comprehension during meditation) and destroys us not utterly (in hell, through the second death)" (Psalm 78: 38).” - Zohar

Weep not: behold, the Lion of the tribe of Judah,
the Root of David, has prevailed to open the book,
and to loose the seven seals thereof. - Revelation 5: 5
