What Evil Lurks

Enthusiasts of Vintage Radio programs will recognize the opening line of The Shadow as the inspiration for this blog’s title: “Who Knows What Evil Lurks in the Hearts of Men?”

So, what exactly is the origin of evil in the world? What underpins it? Could evil, in fact, really be caused by a red-tailed cosmic cartoon character run amuck on mankind? Or might it proceed from so-called “original sin,” an accursed spiritual birth defect ostensibly passed down to us from Eve?

Well, the “problem of evil” can get rather complicated.

However, the problem becomes far less complicated when you replace theological allegories with depth psychology, quantum physics and the scientifically proven universal interconnectedness of all things, both good and evil. Ironically, spiritual growth is actually stunted when theological allegories are taken too literally, but that’s another topic for another time; spiritual growth is dependent upon keen conscious awareness, reason and rationality.

In physics, good and evil are analogous to order and disorder, or chaos. Chaos serves as a touchstone to measure the amount of disorder (entropy) and, consequently, the quanta of negative energy plaguing the world at any given time. Unquestionably there is more negativity, fear and uncertainty in the world today – more furious negative vortices – than at any time in our history since the Second World War. And the situation appears to be getting worse.

A vortex is an emergent property of energy. It can ossify into either a positive or negative force that can fester and grow or just fade away of its own accord if not replenished. Too many negative vortices are festering and growing. They swirl in search of sustenance – more negativity, fear and foolhardy behavior.

Positive energy vortices, on the other hand, are palpable at such revered sites as the Great Pyramids, Stonehenge, Glastonbury, Sedona along with various other venerated locations across the globe. You yourself are a micro-vortex of energy – and there’s the rub. Each of us is naturally susceptible, and some of us perhaps even prone, to being imperiled by negative vibrations. We are then in danger of becoming negative vortices ourselves unless we mount a spiritual defense by refortifying our natural auric center.

Irrational fear is chiefly responsible for our current dilemma. Throughout the ages it has been the weapon of choice for propagandists. The wanton manipulation of populations through fear fueled by lies and deception is itself inherently evil.

Fear and hate are the bottom feeders among energy fields of negative vibrations. I imagine “apocalyptic fear” ranks even lower. Other notable negative vibrations result from anger, anxiety, stress, envy, lust and shock, which is a sudden psychic jolt of debilitating emotion and/or trauma.

A vortex of negative energy affects not only those overwhelmed by it, but also those who come in contact with that colorless aura. For example, an elderly couple enjoying a quiet meal in a restaurant are suddenly accosted by ANTIFA thugs. Those who stumble across the video replay on social media are shocked and repulsed. Such negativity can fester inside and spread to others like a noxious weed. Social media is particularly apt at this.

As we approach what looks more and more to be a global tipping point, maintaining one’s center becomes vital. Just as vital is the need to produce positive energy via positive thoughts, prayers, meditation, nature walks, friends and family connections – whatever you generally do to regain your center and maintain peace and order in your life is now more vital than ever.

This lurking evil proceeds from an archetype that is increasing in efficacy. Gird your defenses with spiritual protection like Chrysalis Tarot (all our archetypes are positive). In our next blog we will identify and characterize this evil archetype now being activated and sustained in so many unwitting people. This archetype, lurking in the shadow-side of everyone’s psyche, is being worshipped and invoked by many servile, disaffected, power hungry souls and evildoers, particularly those in the corrupt twin towers of evil – the Deep State and the Deep Church (Vatican).

We are entering a period of spiritual warfare writ large. Meditate, pray and safeguard your inner peace. Bless you.

The Mystery of Inequity – Oops!

That title, taken from the Bible, refers to the existence of evil in the world, or in philosophical and theological terminology, “The Problem of Evil.”

I’m currently dizzy from writing an academic paper on this subject, which is why I mistakenly published a newspaper reprint on the Chrysalis Tarot blog that had nothing much to do with Chrysalis. I intended the piece for another blog I publish, which, should anyone wish to read the article regardless, it can be found here.

While I immediately deleted the wayward reprint from ChrysalisTarot.com, it did find its way via email to my Chrysalis subscribers. I apologize for the miscue. We live in dizzying times, eh?

That said, it may be worth noting that evil in the world becomes activated and animated in the human psyche by an archetype popularly (and incorrectly) referred to as Satan. The fraught attributes and characteristics commonly associated with “Satan the Cosmic Boogeyman” provide us with little more than a convenient scapegoat for evildoing and the customary mind-bending simplistic pronouncements girded up by religious dogma.

What lies behind the reality of evil in the world is far more complex. Its true explanations fall squarely in the realm of depth psychology and quantum physics and not apologetics.
