Kabbalistickly speaking, there are two drives upon which everything we think say and do manifests; however there is a subconscious and conscious side to us, hence we are totally unaware of our own faults and often over-enamored with our own qualities.
The narcissism of the ego, jealousy hence hate:
Within us is the devil that primarily is narcissistic, “its all about me” (ring a bell) and we are A. prepared to do anything even great acts of harm for my own pleasure, as people in power such as Arab dictators and King and Queens of yesteryear did B. we can get terribly jealous of others that have more than us, believing it to be unfair and hence desiring and focusing all our energies on their destruction which is the true reason behind anti-Semitism and anti-West today (if the Jews and Americans didn’t represent happiness, success and dignity no one would hate them.)
The beauty of the soul, love harmony and unity:
Our souls are literally the light of God within this world and hence children who have not fully developed their ego, are essentially very utopian orientated, believing in all that is good and holy, that everyone should just love each other, get along; for the more we develop our pride and conversely the more our pride is shattered hence we develop grandiosity / egotistic fantasy as a cover up for our shattered pride but far more grander, the more we lose touch with our real essence the light of God which is us.
The delusions of our minds, fantasy masking desire:
Now our minds are not what we think they are, as we blogged our minds convince us not of truth rather of what we desire the truth to be, hence even the Nazis, Terrorists and anyone who does bad can give you thousands of cockamamie ideas which they genuinely believe that justifies their evil.
