What Draws Mankind To Evil?
In the Detroit-area, a doctor who authorities say gave cancer treatment drugs to patients who did not need them - including some who didn't actually have cancer - was sentenced to 45 years in prison. This will end his lavish spending and lifestyle that he has enjoyed along with his wife, who was also a nurse in his practice.
It was shown that this "doctor" gave unneeded cancer treatments to his misdiagnosed patients, telling some they had terminal blood cancer ... multiple myeloma. He is also guilty of Medicare fraud, conspiracy to pay or receive kickbacks, and money laundering (totaling over 17 million dollars) on top of the gross evil he did to his patients. Clearly, patients were not people. They were profit centers. Many of these patients have died since, and all the others have suffered immeasurably.
So we have to ask, what is it that leads a doctor, who is under Hippocratic Oath, and under the law - and commonly understood moral standards - to perform such an act of evil ... on over 500 patients that trusted him with their lives? What happened to the heart of a man who disregarded the gift of life, and ignored his patients desire to live a healthy existence free of disease ... in exchange for wealth and fancy "things?"
How could he look into their faces ... and tell them they had deadly cancer when in fact, they did not? How could he willingly destroy the lives of hundreds of people and thousands more in their circle of family and friends? His eyes were set on material wealth, and fulfilling his physical senses with pleasures at the expense of other fellow humans. Although there is nothing wrong with wealth, it should never become the goal while sacrificing the welfare of others.
So what led him astray? Was it the evil devil or satan? Yes ... but not in the way most religions teach. This devil or satan is not some anthropomorphized chief-demon of evil who makes people do things through outside influence. This devil or satan is the ego of mankind ... an inside job ... influenced by none other than ego-self ... personal desire with total disregard for Divine Will and universal default. Among the ancient teachings of wise sages and philosophers, we find the real devil ... active within each of us, always seeking, and never being satisfied.
This evil "spirit" is unseen, as is all spirit. This means that it has it's existence in the realm of consciousness and this evil force needs a body and mind to operate through. The force itself, is the ego desires and thoughts of man being manifest into a world of physical matter. What a man thinks, he becomes. As a man thinks, it is done unto him say the ancient writers. This is the Law of Cause And Effect.
Our free will choices are always based upon duality and polarity such as good and bad, dark and light, etc. The "one thing" has both positive and negative polarity that we may use these extremes to evaluate and eventually discern the right decision both in thought and in deed.
Before we move any further, I need to explain the "caduceus" ... this is the symbol for medicine seen today as the double serpents on a staff. You will see it as a symbol throughout the medical industry.
The double snakes of the caduceus represent duality and the unification of polar opposites. As such, these double snakes speak of the balance and integration polarities in order to strike harmony such as "good/evil" and "illness/health."
Essentially, these opposing snakes represent the concept of yin and yang. The spiraling contortion of serpents in the traditional caduceus imagery indicates an expansion of knowledge as well as the undulating dance of cosmic forces.
The vertical rod or staff of caduceus is an emissary of transference between body and mind (physical and spiritual) ... a union. Just as the symbolic Tree of Life (seen in many ancient cultures) connects the expanse between earth (roots/matter) to heaven (sky/Spirit).
The wings are symbolic of ascension, messages from the Divine, and awareness from a higher spiritual vantage point. As an alchemical symbol the caduceus represents the conjugation of sulphur (male) and quicksilver (female). This symbol also infers the synthesis of opposites with the goal of unification and transformation.
Caduceus means “herald’s staff of office” in Greek, and the center rod was a symbol of Hermes who was the messenger of the gods. In the Bible, you will find many stories connected with Moses and his powerful staff.
The caduceus’ association with the medical profession comes from the ancient god Aesculapius who is a god of healing. So in short, the caduceus is a symbol of healing. Which brings us to the next section concerning this "physician."
In my opinion, I will state that this man is a creature who is so weighed down in the pursuit of money and material riches that he was blind to the effects of his cause. Did he understand the immeasurable degree of suffering that he inflicted upon innocent children of God/Source, or did he not? We, will never know.
A hurricane cares not for the carnage it leaves behind. It cuts a swath of death and destruction in it's path and then disappears. Perhaps he thought himself to be invisible to the immeasurable evil that was being manifest at his hands. This was no "doctor." This was an imposter who had recieved training and certiication as a doctor but never understood the conditions that came with it. The Hippocratic Oath. The moral obligation. The heart and Soul of compassion and love.
He became a bag of flesh, a shell ... empty of the Divine Spark of God within us all waiting for acceptance to come forth and operate under Divine Will. He became an empty box ... presented as a gift ... yet having no contents. In reality, all of us are connected as ONE through the organism of the universe. Through breath, earth, consciousness, we are all interconnected. This means what we do to "other," we are doing to our self.
Without his toys, and upon entering and living a life of incarceration, that same mind that created this reality for him, will continue to badger him with guilt and fear. He will become scared of his own shadow. He will live the rest of his life in the cauldron of karma that he created.
This is not outer God, nor devil, nor court who decides his or anyone else's ultimate outcome ... it is immutable Universal Law. These Laws have been established by Source/God from the beginning of physical existence. There is no escaping the effects of first cause. Do not be surprised if he himself is diagnosed with cancer while in prison. And although I would wish this hideous illness on no one, Universal consciousness does not forget, nor does it play favourites. It will bring you what you choose to create. He has created suffering and mayhem, and like an echo and boomerang, it will return to him. If not in this life, in the life beyond.
In closing, I send positive healing energy and deep centered prayer to the victims of this doctor, and others who have suffered at the hands of medical mistakes, misdiagnosis, and malpractice ... whether accidental, or intentional. Peace and compassion to them. Trust me when I tell you, I have had first hand experience in my life. We place our trust in medical professionals, and for the most part they are always seeking to help ... but remember ... always get another opinion no matter the diagnosis.
Just a thought ...
