Another excerpt from 'Good and Evil Addiction'
The entangled people
It is not only the good and evil addicts who are suffered from the good and evil addiction. I mean people who do not have the addiction cannot escape from the conflicts caused by the addiction either.
Do you think that it is only a matter of misfortune?
However, this is not a matter of luck. It is rather inevitability.
I will explain.
For the good and evil addicts, the world consists of only good and evil. For them, evil is something which everyone must hate or fight against.
A person who does not fight against the evil is the one who does not do something he/she must do. It will not be the matter of fortune but inevitability that the one who does not do what he/she should do is to be classified as evil by the good and evil addicts.
This means a man who does not like fighting is to be classified as bad because of this.
You would often have heard the following kind of statements.
- "The man is evil. Let's fight! ...Oh, do you say he is not evil? Then you must be evil, too!"
- "You will fight against the evil, won't you? If you don't, we will regard you as one of the members of the evil league, and we will attack you too.
This means, good and evil addicts always try to draw in and involve others into their battle fields.
For it is good for them to fight against evil as much as possible.
If you don't want to be involved in other people's fight, please think deeply that how to heal not only yourself but also other people's addicts, too.
-I am not talking about only individual matters.
You or the people around you might respect Wa among each other and have no good and evil addiction.
However, how about the rest of the world?
There are countless good and evil addicts there.
And they live not only in so called developing countries. There are countless good and evil addicts in advanced countries with/without military super powers, aren't there?
If the good and evil addiction leaves the belief of "Power is justice" and causes military expansion, more addicts in a nation means the bigger the chance is for the nation to be a military super power.
If the good and evil addicts live somewhere in a remote place and are weaker than us, it is possible to just ignore them.
However, if they live close to us (not only geographically but also economically or politically) and if they are much stronger than us, then what do you think?
If someone who are much more powerful than us threatens us, -"If you do not fight together, then we will regard you as evil, and attack you"-what do you think will happen?
To attack a nation does not necessarily mean just by the use of nuclear missiles. It includes a lift of tariff, asset freeze, an embargo of oil, economic blockades, cancellation of visas, an encouragement of terrorism, a murder of VIPs etc.
No matter how much you do not want to exchange blows, if you want to avoid these threats, you must fight against one or the other party (either the good and evil addicts or the people whom the addicts regard as wicked).
Please imagine how ridiculous this would be. On the grounds that someone happens to have the good and evil addiction, you must fight against people with your own flesh and blood whom you have no resentment for.
That is why the others' good and evil addiction is your business, as long as you live together on the same planet, the earth.
To work with people's good and evil addiction and to heal them, going beyond the borders, races and religions is extremely important to avoid being caught up in such ridiculous but sad battles.
The healing of good and evil addiction is also for the sake of the addicts themselves, of course. As I have repeated many times, to depend on illusion means to keep cheating oneself by his/her self. If you cheat yourself, you can never get the outcome which you wish.
Fortunately for the efforts to heal the addiction, we need no weapon or bullet. We do not need any help from authorities, either. We can do this on the individual grassroots level.
We won't forget wild times in peace.
This kind of healing efforts would establish eternal wa on the earth, won't it?
