Negativity, blame = misery

Another insightful verse I had to mention from Stephen Mitchell‘s book The Gospel According to Jesus.

We may condemn a crime, but not a person. Blame is always a dangerous weapon, and it points both ways. That is why in the Book of Job the negative power in the human cosmos, the cause of all our misery, is called Satan, “the Accuser.”

Blake said, “The player is a liar when he says angels are happier than men because they are better. Angels are happier than men because they are not always prying after good and evil in one another and eating the Tree of Knowledge for Satan’s gratification.”
