Perfect Yourself!

laitman_207Question: How must I understand the statement that “There is no evil in the world” if only evil exists in the world? The cruel and vicious history of humanity, wars, and treachery are proof of this.

Answer: All the evil in the world is my evil, something I cannot balance with good. The evil exists within me! It is written, “All who condemn do so through their own defect.” (Kiddushin 70b)

The conclusion is very simple: if I want to see a perfect world, I must perfect myself. We will discover that this is so, however illogical and unrealistic it may seem. All I see around me is my reflection. So what can be done when such evil is discovered? I must change myself.
