Mankind responsible for its actions

“The next natural step would be to re-assimilate those portions of the self, to acknowledge their ancient origins and abilities, to return them so that they form a new coating, as it were, or a new version of selfhood.  It is as if man could not understand his own potentials unless he projected them outward into a godhead, where he could see them in a kind of isolated pure form, recognize them for what they are, and then accept them – the potentials – as part of his own psychological reality.  As a species, however, you have not taken the last step.  Your idea of the devil represents the same kind of process, except that it stands for your idea of evil or darkness, or abilities that you are afraid of.  They also stand for elements of your own potential.  I am not speaking of evil possibilities, but that man must realize that he is responsible for his acts, whether they are called good or evil.”
(Dreams, “Evolution” and Value Fulfillment Vol 2Session 921)
