Why are we often confronted with acts of wickedness nowadays?

Recently I heard on the radio the following horrific story: A 13-year-old girl was abducted, raped and finally killed by some unknown perpetrators. The question that occupied the mind of the radio commentator and I am sure that of many a listener was “why”. Why would human beings inflict such suffering, anguish and pain on such a young, helpless child? What could be their gratification? What drives people to commit such acts of unbelievable wickedness?

Although this story is extremely shocking because of the tender age of the victim, similar stories of violent and wicked acts are reported in newspapers, heard on radio and shown on television on a regular basis.

There are many angles from which one can try to explain the motives behind the perpetrators of such madness: Lack of a loving, family environment while growing up, perhaps they themselves were abused as children? Alternatively, do we blame it on social factors – poverty, unemployment? Or should we accept the religious view, as many are wont to do, blame it on Satan and exclaim, “It is Satan at work, the devil is behind it”?

If however, we take the matter from the perspectives of the Laws of Creation as explained in the work “In the Light of Truth the Grail Message” by Abd-ru-shin, we recognise other factors that are at work.

Man by virtue of his spiritual origin has the ability to form matter. Through his intuitive and thinking processes, he produces thought-forms, which populate adjacent planes of matter to our earthly, physically visible environment. Though unseen by many of us, these forms act upon us and upon our fellow humans. These thought-forms either roam around independently or form homogeneous centres through which they can exercise a powerful influence either for the good or the bad depending upon the nature of the generating thought that brought them into being.

If, for instance, someone gives way to a thought of a base nature, immediately his thought will be connected through magnetic attraction to homogeneous power centres. These can increase the originating thought to such a magnitude that it can push the one linked to it to commit acts of a base and hideous nature, which may not originally have been in the intention or mind of the perpetrator.

Many of us who point accusingly at others and condemn their actions, may actually have been partly responsible for such acts if we have allowed ourselves at one time or another to generate forms of a similar nature. It is for this reason that the author of the Grail Message as one of his most urgent admonitions to humanity says, “keep the hearth of your thoughts pure, by doing so you will bring peace and be happy”!

The explanation given in this article is based on the author’s understanding of the Work “In The Light of Truth”, The Grail Message by Abd-ru-shin.
