In the last few years I have committed effort to replying to the influence of evil, (in my humble assessment), in the world. Each day I search for events that reflect what appears to be an eternal spiritual struggle between good and evil. This of course, is much like searching for truffles, which dictates that when you are following a pig on a leash you spend a lot of time looking at a pigs ass. This can affect your outlook on the world.
One is tempted to see a world filled with nothing but evil. But in refusing to recognize and illuminate good, one becomes an advocate for evil.
