Question: The recognition of evil in me is the recognition of my egoism. The recognition of something can happen only by our recognition of the differences; how black I can perceive black depends on if there is at least a bit of white in the background.
We can begin to be aware of, to know, and to perceive the Creator, that is, the attribute of bestowal, only if we recognize and are aware of the evil in us. Otherwise we will not be able to perceive and to recognize the attribute of bestowal.
But how can we recognize and perceive the evil in us (our egoism) if all that is in us, all that we perceive in this world, is egoism and nothing else? Please explain, how do you suggest that we recognize our egoism?
If we can recognize and perceive the evil in us, we will be able to justify the Creator with our heart. Otherwise it doesn’t happen and there is only an imaginary movement forward.
Answer: This is actually why we need the upper Light (the Surrounding Light)!
