One of the most illuminating truths which mysticism has revealed is that there is no ultimate reality to evil. No devil, no damnation outside of one’s state of thought, no punishment outside of that self-inflicted through ignorance, and no salvation outside of conscious cooperation with the infinite.

There is a voice that most of us hear in our heads that tells us that we should be doing better. No matter what we do, there is more that we should have or could have done. While many people are crippled by this voice, most have learned to live with it and the abiding sense that “I should be doing better.” If ever there was a thought that should be ascribed to the Evil One, that is it. … John Anderson, Ph.D
