First I will say for myself that I prefer goodness over evil. I am a stickler for happy endings. First of all for other people that we read or hear about. It makes my day if everything goes good for them in the end. For myself, I am quite happy with everything and love challenges and have had many victories in life, just small ones, very happy to not being famous.
As said many times, I also know that prayers have worked for me, when really needed, but to whom or how and all that I have no real idea. Maybe some spirits. Drop that for now.

Prayers: Larry Dossey has a book that makes me happy "One mind" and another one called "Careful what you pray for, you might just get it" and it makes me laugh, but it goes into a lot of detail of what we are discussing right here. Prayers can also be curses. Even if the ones saying them think they are good people.
Then he also mentions how the bible has it that the Jewish God says everything comes from him, both good and evil, so there you are. You fondness for Satan is also the fondness for God. Carl Jung and several other famous people have said they could not imagine anything worse than complete harmony. I sort of agree. In between our struggles it is nice just sometimes to be able to relax without any worries. I have such a moment right now, with a cup of coffee, but it won't be long before the usual shit happens! Ok, I will fix it, I am a fixer and love it when I get it right, and that has up till now always worked out, since I am so, so stubborn.

Larry Dossey also mentions black holes, how they absorb everything. Makes me shiver. Do they also swallow our souls? I think they are supposed to also swallow light.
I have thought of good and evil in a way where one small candle or match stick dispels darkness, but maybe it is different with black holes.
BLACK HOLES. Yak!

Whatever, I will try as long as I can to believe in love over hatred. A friendly word instead of a snear and bullying, a smile. I live in a smaller place, and everybody seem so friendly when I go shopping. Not so in bigger cities.

I should order your book now. A pity I can't get it on kindle. I want everything NOW!

All the best, GG.
