Good is never self-centered; its essence is selfless sacrifice and self-giving. Evil is self-centered and denotes consumptive sacrifice of others.
There are two forces in the human body: the force that pushes you forward and the force of resistance. With the interaction of these two forces, you can keep your body in good shape; you need a balance of these two forces. Thus, you can’t assume that opposition, automatically implies something bad. What about good and evil: after all, they are also opposing forces? Can evil somehow be positive? No. Although evil is opposition, opposition is destructive. It creates nothing.
Good and evil are not determined by what you believe or think about. They are determined by your daily living. The outcome of your life does not depend on your worldview or what doctrine you hold, but on how you live each day.
If you imagine a boundary between good and evil, where are you? Have you crossed the line toward good? The answer is known to you, and you don’t need to consult any laws to answer that question. You can instantly determine whether you are on the side of good or evil. For subconsciously, you know how to distinguish between good and evil. So, you must get rid of evil by developing good in your heart. Selfishness and self-love are your worst enemies. You must be able to resist them by doing good for others.
