Evil is real. It exists, not externally or absolutely, but as a projection. It is an attitude that we harbor towards things. Regardless of evil’s origin or nature, there it is. You’re wading in it up to your balls. Don’t let it get to you, though. Seeing past it is key. Ignore the mind-fuck. Evil is an underachiever. It may be everywhere. It may seem inescapable. Keep in mind, however, that evil is typically uninspired and mediocre. It’s just dirt. Everything gets dirty, but it’s just dirt. A little vigilance and turpentine wipes it away. The other side of this proverbial coin is the glory of all things beautiful and inspired. It is worth it. It is worth the pain. The beauty is worth ugliness. Strength, art, music, sex, drunkenness, friends, family, and those special moments of accomplishment, serenity, solitude, authenticity, and satisfaction are the real virtue. Victory! It can be simple and tiny, or large and complex, but bliss comes in many forms. It is always more remarkable than uninspired, mediocre negativity. What you want to see is what you will see.
