Evil and the Diabolical
Evil: Wickedness, moral depravity,
sin; whatever is censurable, painful, malicious, or disastrous; the evil part or element of anything. 2 A wrongdoing, a crime, a

Peter: In ‘normal’ society we are socially trained to be good and have
good feelings. As a back-up when the ‘good’ fails we have laws, lawyers, psychiatrists, police, fines, jails, armies, etc. to stop the
‘bad’ feelings from running amok. The spiritual solution is to pump up the good feelings to become divine feelings resulting in feelings of

Being initially seen to be Pure Love – which femininity I would nowadays consider to be a product of me being of masculine gender. Eventually
I was able to penetrate into the nature of this ‘Radiant Being’ and was able to see ‘Her’ other face:
It was Pure Evil – the Diabolical underpins the Divine
– and upon such exposure ‘She’ disappeared forever.
