Ask Deepak

Is there such a thing as Evil?.

Quote.

When your mind and heart are truly open abundance will flow to you effortlessly and easily.

Question:

“I understand it is true (however rare) that there are some people born without the ability to love and empathize (extreme narcissism, psychopathy). 

My questions:

1. Do you believe there is evil? 

2. Do you believe there is such a thing as an evil soul? 

3. How would you explain these rare psychopathic individuals on a spiritual level?”

Response:

There are pathological destructive mental states and behavior that presents itself as evil activity, but I do not believe there is an existing something that is itself evil. 

Individuals who display such mental behavior are not intrinsically bad or evil, they have habitual maladaptive social behaviors in a misguided attempt to achieve their goals. 

They will eventually abandon this strategy when they come to realize that attaining their objectives does not really bring the inner fulfillment they seek.

Love,

Deepak
