“When we understand that evil is nothing but a disease of the human mind, we understand why human societies are the way they are, why there is all the injustice, violence, and war. We have ingested Parasites in the form of beliefs, in the form of concepts, in the form of distorted images. All of the personal drama that we experience – all the emotions that burn us up, that lead us into self-destruction, into addictions, into lies, into dogmas and fanaticism – are the result of our beliefs, the result of a program.
If we can see that we get sick by eating knowledge, then using logic, how can we heal ourselves? What happens when we eat food that is contaminated and we don’t feel well? If we throw up and get rid of the poison, we are going to feel better. Well, if we get rid of the knowledge that harms us, guess who goes out with that knowledge? Once we take the Parasite out of the mind, the mind will heal and will function much better.”
Don Miguel Ruiz, in “The Four Agreements Companion Book”
