what is evil?

What is the distinction between recognizing something evil and judging it...

When you have an emotional reaction to what you see, you are judging. That is your signal that you have an issue inside yourself- with yourself-not with the other person. If you react self righteously to evil, look inside yourself for the very thing that so agitates you, and you will find it. If it were not there you would simply discern, act appropriately, and move on. -Gary Zukav
