At least from a Gnostic perspective, yes, evil exists, but it isn’t just an external enemy, it also exists within each one of us, it si known as STS (Service to Self), and is about the God spark consciousness serving itself instead of experiencing balance and serving all. According to the Gnostic author Montalk, at Montalk.net, in the Ra material, STO (Service to Others) is balanced, and that balance is the positive polarity, while STS is imbalanced as light or imbalanced as dark; and we tend to agree. If STO is understood as good, light, and positive combined, then we feel it has been misinterpreted, but if STO and positive is understood as balance and neutrality, then we agree.
Think of it in binary vs ternary computing, where in the light you have a 0 and a 1, while in the dark you have a 0 and a -1; both are imbalanced. But in ternary computing, you have a 1, 0, and -1, which in predictive computing will always lead to a neutral and balanced charge; binary is STS, while Ternary is STO. We use Carl Jung’s shadow work, anima/animus work, and EFT tapping to integrate and neutralize the shadows (good shadows and evil shadows), which are both of the ego, into the non judgmental observer within. From what we can understand of the parasitic invaders, they are neither light nor darkness, and possibly not even from our universe (according to Andrew Bartzis), but they manipulate both the light and darkness to their own parasitic feeding goals. Whereas the neutrality folks, such as the Gnostics, Carl Jung, Robert Augustus Masters, all point to emotional awareness and neutrality as unity consciousness.
We too see emotional awareness, balance, and neutrality as the path (3rd Way) to defeating the parasitic invaders who uphold the 4d control grid, whereas the 3d control grid is the one being fought over with the “Event”. We don’t think 3d humans need to be fighting the 3d control grid right now, as the new 3d will be under the control of 4d STS beings just as it is now, we think all of our focus needs to be on the 4d grid. It is our responsibility to neutralize it with emotional and spiritual integration via shadow work, not by hoping that an external ET or Angelic force that will save us. At least from our understanding, love and light will not combat the 4d grid, at least not from the limited perspective that it is being touted now; its just not practical and is more of a slogan or patriotic battle cry. Love and Light is the result, and not the cause of emotional and spiritual integration of the shadows within, the light shadows and the dark shadows, removing the struggle of good vs evil, light vs dark, and instead becoming the neutral observer that cannot be manipulated any further by parasites, light, and dark.
Here is a great interview of Andrew Bartzis that gives an alternative perspective to all that is going on here. His contract nullification scripts at the end are absolutely priceless, and we highly recommend listening to his presentation of them.
