"God did not create evil just as darkness is the absence of light, evil is the absence of God." Albert Einstein... I recently came to this possible conclusion before seeing the quote. Knowing Einstein said this makes me feel better. I trust he had a thought process that convinced him this is the correct conclusion.
On the other hand I am still in the process of proving to myself that all thought forms I encounter in various stages of altered consciousness regardless, if perceived as light and warm...or dark, cold and menisening... are thoughts I entirely conceived or control? No matter, this is the space I find myself after a disturbing near death experience...

everything that exist can be used to help or harm, it has equal potential for both. If this is true, it connects the 2 sides of duality making good and evil the same thing.

think about it for a moment. We try to make laws to govern people, stealing is wrong, and yet, some mother steeling a loaf of bread to feed her children is not wrong. So all those dualities, light & dark, good & evil, right & wrong, they exist on a scale.

On the one side 100% good (as if this could exist), on the other 100% bad (equally as unlikely), a perfect blending from the one extreme to the other, all one thing. Then we come along, look at where we stand on that scale, and suddenly good and evil exist.

God didn't create evil, but the potential for evil exist within god. It is through our perspectives that evil (or good) is manifest.

so evil is not the absence of god, but rather the absence of the awareness of god (or it's helpful perspective)

of course this is just my opinion

In our dualistic experience, if god (all that is good) exist, then so too would the devil (all that is bad). Would we really want that?

I have experienced three NDE's throughout my life... the words to relate such events are difficult to pin down. In my next blog I will attempt explaining...why and how this most recent one differs from the other two. I fear it will a very long blog without prior planning. I also have doubts if my limited education is up to the task...

How many NDE's have you had? It sounds like several I may be reading your text wrong. What is the disturbance that you have?
