N Beyond duality N

?Are you not aware of it
Are not its actions obvious
?its sorrow crushing
?Who has created it but each one of us
Who is responsible for it but each
?one of us

As we have created good, however little
.so we have created evil, however vast
Good and evil are part of us and are also
.independent of us

When we think-feel narrowly, enviously
with greed and hate, we are adding
.to the evil which turns and rends us
This problem of good and evil, this
conflicting problem, is always with us
as we are creating it. It has become
part of us, this wanting and not wanting
.loving and hating, craving and renouncing

We are continually creating this duality
.in which thought-feeling is caught up
Thought-feeling can go beyond and above good
and its opposite only when it understands
its cause -craving. In understanding merit
.and demerit there is freedom from both
Opposites cannot be fused and they are to be
.transcended through the dissolution of craving
Each opposite must be thought out, felt out, as
extensively and deeply as possible, through
all the layers of consciousness; through
this thinking out, feeling out, a new comprehension
is awakened which is not the product
.of craving or of time

There is evil in the world to which we are
.contributing as we contribute to the good
.Man seems to unite more in hate than in good
A wise man realizes the cause of evil and
good, and through understanding frees
.thought-feeling from it
