There is no such thing as a ''pantheist'' anywhere living in the universe. This is an artificially constructed concept upon and within Empty Consciousness. It has no reality whatsoever in and of itself.
The ''sense of separation'' is created right there in that idea...the idea there is a ''pantheist''
That is true. However it's nice to explore ideas as ideas.
Evil can only arise in the sense of ''separate self'' ... there is no evil in reality whatsoever in and of itself. This too is a mental construct. Undo the sense of ''separate self'' and all evil will melt away like a salamander in the sun.
That too is true. Evil is not something that exists apart . However we do suffer, and usually we don't like to suffer, so we describe it as "evil".
The mind does this to itself, if it can create something, it can un-create something.
The problem of evil is easily solved...stop creating it in the first place.
But to name something as 'evil' or as 'good' does not affect the suffering very much. If you or I , each a benevolent person, could stop evil then we would. True, some anaesthetists do hypnotise patients not to feel pain. Maybe this skill will become better known.
No person is ever evil...it's all the conscious mind of opposites. Beyond the play of opposites is the Immutable SELF that can never be destroyed.
True, although your "beyond" is loaded with unasked questions! The idea that evil is absence of good is optimistic, and is exemplified among many other illustrations by the famous painting of Christ as the Light of the World.
The Light can put out the darkness... but the darkness can never put out the
Light, it can obscure the Light temporally but never extinguish it entirely.
You can put Light into the dark, but you cannot put dark into the Light...because there is only LIGHT..and darkness is an appearance of that LIGHT.
I agree.Please see my comment above.
