The Tree of The Knowledge of Good and Evil



The existence of evil in a world created by a perfect god is an enigma that has always preoccupied philosophers and theologians. Without departing from the general framework of the Judeo-Christian tradition, Omraam Mikhaël Aïvanhov’s approach to the problem is original: he insists that the solution to the problem of evil is not a question of philosophical explanations but of practical methods. Whatever its origin, evil is both an internal and external reality, and we have to learn to deal with it in our everyday lives. To attack it head-on is not only useless, but it is also dangerous; the odds are too heavily against us. What we need is to learn the methods that will enable us to overcome and transform it.
