Chapter 3
Our human existence lives in the balance of two very real energies. The bible teaches and speaks of the existence of good and evil. Christianity, Hinduism, Buddhism and other religions have an understanding of this reality. In Christianity evil has a personal identity that began with the fallen angel, Lucifer. In the beginning, God created the Angels as personal and immaterial beings with free will. The understanding is that a hierarchy of angels exists; the cherubim, seraphim and Archangels, each designed for specific tasks.

The Angels understood in their creation that they were a part of something magnificent, amazing and in harmony with the Divine. There was no question as to the nature of their existence and their purpose. As a creation of God they were filled with love and light, and each had specific gifts with which to assist God and humankind. Created as loving beings they simply set about the task of fulfilling Divine Will, essentially participating in God’s creation. Personal desire did not exist as such. But somewhere within the hierarchy of Angels, one specific angel, the Angel Lucifer rebelled, basically due to ego, a belief of self-importance. How this occurred was based on Lucifer’s desire to, not only be with God, but to be God. When he rebelled against the order that God created, evil was born. When he rebelled against perfect balance, something inside of him changed, and he warped and magnified into something else. The inherent design of evil is the opposite of creation. It was Lucifer’s attempt at another form of creation. Since the beginning, the understanding of the fallen Angel Lucifer in Christianity is that Lucifer’s free will separated self from God. According to Christianity this is the beginning and basis for all human suffering. This is the Christian belief, but understand that Lucifer’s free will included the desire to take over and control a creation of his own. This creation would be destruction; a destruction of God’s creation. Thus he was cast out from the Heavenly realm, to dwell elsewhere.

In Buddhism evil is regarded as real only in the reality that human existence is the all-pervading condition of suffering. The only possibility of escaping suffering is to understand this true nature of this life (reality). Eventually we can escape our ignorance, karma and reincarnation and obtain enlightenment through the teachings of Buddha
