“The first rule is to keep an untroubled spirit. The second is to look things in the face and know them for what they are.”~ Marcus Aurelius
What we have here in this world of ours, in our families, in our communities is a failure to see what is real and what is a deception. That is how evil works. It detracts from good by distracting from it and pretending to be good.
Evil parades as good all the time. Remember Satan was beautiful and cunning.
When distracting you doesn’t work, evil will lie just enough to make you doubt the good. It will spin just enough truth in with the lie to make it plausible.
Be aware. Be diligent. Pay attention to the whispers and the not quite right on the edges
Protect good at all cost.
