William Blake’s “Good and Evil”

19 Feb

During my first stay in Pune, India, I was just beginning to learn how to meditate.

A friend from the Sahaja meditation class recommended I check out the works of William Blake. As I browsed one of his books translated into modern English, I found myself intellectually unprepared to fully appreciate the genius of Blake’s words and his reverence for the arts. As I was about to take the book to the library return bin, I noticed this amazing painting titled “Good and Evil” on the back cover of the book. This stunning visual captured my imagination:

This painting presented a simple yet powerful key to the mechanism of human liberation: the good angels will always rescue the children of the world from clutches of negativity, because they, themselves, are truly free. (Notice the clamp on the evil guy’s leg). No matter how seemingly powerful dark forces are, only the enlightened triumph in the rescue mission, as they themselves are truly free.

The dark side may look very powerful on the outside — but it is limited, hollow and temporary.

    Ultimate. Shri Mata Ji has done this job. She has liberated the true seekers of God Almighty from the jaws and paws of negative and evil forces which is called Kali Yuga. Thanks to Shri Mata Ji again and again till my last breath. Thanks to William Blake for the above painting telling a true and spritual story.

    Ultimate. Shri Mata Ji has done this job of liberating the true seekers of God Almighty from the jaws and paws of evil forces i.e. Kali Yuga, which William Blake has depicted in his lively painting. Thanks to Shri Mata Ji and thanks to William Blake.
