I define a 'good person' as somebody who is fully conscious of their own limitations. They know their strengths, but they also know their 'shadow' - they know their weaknesses. In other words, they understand that there is no good without bad. Good and evil are really one, but we have broken them up in our consciousness. We polarize them.
Children are natural Zen masters; their world is brand new in each and every moment.
As a child I was not allowed to express my feelings, so I had to go back through therapy and express the child's pain.
Evil is a source of moral intelligence in the sense that we need to learn from our shadow, from our dark side, in order to be good.
Our beliefs create the kind of world we believe in. We project our feelings, thoughts and attitudes onto the world. I can create a different world by changing my belief about the world. Our inner state creates the outer and not vice versa.
