Evil is like a shadow - it has no real substance of its own, it is simply a lack of light. You cannot cause a shadow to disappear by trying to fight it, stamp on it, by railing against it, or any other form of emotional or
physical resistance. In order to cause a shadow to disappear, you must shine light on it.

-Shakti Gawain, teacher and author (1948- )

Interesting analogy... Except for the last part. Shining light on a shadow might wash it out and make it undetectable, but the shadow is still there because something is still casting it. It takes two things to cast a shadow: a light source and an obstruction. The only way to make a shadow disappear is to remove one of those two things... not to add something else.

Evil is more like a magnifying glass, distorting light into a destructive power. Unfortunately I don't know how to make a magnifying glass disappear. :)
