When Evil Began

When did we start to have the troubles we have today?  Reading the latest on Zero Hedge you would be forgiven for believing that things have always been this way.  But have they?  Was there a time before evil?  If so what brought evil into our lives?

The demon Pazuzu

Here is a statue of Pazuzu the monstrous wind demon.  He along with the evil Croucher, the horrible Asapper demons and countless others suddenly fill the air in Mesopotamia like flies around rotting meat in the first millennium B.C. 

These demons brought afflictions of every kind.  It became a full time occupation for people to cope with the plague of evil that threatened them at every turn. 

Sound familiar?

We know this primarily from the thousands of prayers, omens and incantations found in the library of Ashurbanipal, the last great Assyrian king who lived near Nineveh around 630 B.C.

Some of Ashurbanipal's library

Like today’s headlines omens found at Nineveh depict a life where evil is ever present:

If a fox runs into the public space,

that town will be devastated.


If a horse enters a man’s house, and bites

either an ass or a man, the owner of the

house will die and his household will be


Ashurbanipal’s library confirms that for thousands of years men and women have had troubles coming at them thick and fast.  But what is so interesting is that before about 1,500 B.C there are practically no omens of impending doom or incantations to ward off evil.  Why?  For the simple reason that there were no demons like Pazuzu.

In other words evil began at a specific time in human history, namely around 1,500 B.C.

This is a momentous insight. 

It shows that evil is not hard wired into the makeup of men and women as so many assume.

It also shows that men and women have lived on Earth without the kind of evil we experience today. 

If we once lived without evil that opens the possibility we can do so again.

So what brought evil into the world?

Here is a link to an introductory video of a program called Troubles Away that is currently being tested by Zero Hedge readers.

 In the video I outline how evil came into the world.  I go into more detail in the daily videos of the 10 day program, especially on day five and day seven.

The aim of Troubles Away is to begin to remove the troubles we face in our lives and in the world. If you would like to take part in the test I would greatly appreciate your feedback before the program goes live. 

Knowing how busy you are likely to be you will be pleased to know the program only takes about 15-20 minutes a day. That includes watching the daily videos and doing the exercises. 

If you can participate please fill in the form below the video.  We get underway with the next round of testing on Tuesday 28th February.

If men and women lived before evil began can we do so again?  I look forward to your feedback.
