Does Good & Evil exist? Sadhguru

Good and evil

Down here, the only reality is the one inside my brain. That means that if I mis sense, my reality changes. If I mis translate the message, my reality changes. If I think it in a way, my reality changes depending on that way. Pulling myself out of that grip and the divine falls from clouds to solid ground, revealing him or herself differently. But the person is the same, I just changed my mind.

Neuroscientists suggest there is no such thing. Are they right?

Scott Peck used to collect religious jokes and this was one of his favorites. Why were they down there? I just couldn't leave them alone. Peck's serious point was that the problem with the New Age movement and prevailing attitudes today was the denial, not so much of Hell, as of the existence of evil. Peck believed that evil was an ever-present part of life and he marshalled some good evidence for that view. But I think the hardest issue for a thinking person to decide today is whether good and evil really exist at all, as a force outside as well as within humanity.

The existence of evil and suffering in our world seems to pose a serious challenge to belief in the existence of a perfect God. If God were all-knowing, it seems that God would know about all of the horrible things that happen in our world. If God were all-powerful, God would be able to do something about all of the evil and suffering. Furthermore, if God were morally perfect, then surely God would want to do something about it. And yet we find that our world is filled with countless instances of evil and suffering. These facts about evil and suffering seem to conflict with the orthodox theist claim that there exists a perfectly good God. The challenged posed by this apparent conflict has come to be known as the problem of evil.

Good exists, but evil does not. A force working in opposition to an equal and contradictory force of good. But this is simply not so. Rather, what we call evil is nothing more than the absence of good. If God is good, then all He created was good. In other words, evil does not exist.

  1. Good vs. Evil doesn't exist. It's all a matter of intent and context. You might say that morality is set in stone. That there are certain actions that no.
