Evil is an experience, and not a power.

THE painful experiences of evil pass away as the new experiences of good enter into and possess the field of consciousness.  And what are the new experiences of good?  They are many and beautiful – such as the joyful knowledge of freedom from sin; the absence of remorse; deliverance from all the torments of temptation; ineffable joy in conditions and circumstances which formerly caused deep affliction; imperviousness to hurt by the actions of others; great patience and sweetness of character; serenity of mind under all circumstances; emancipation from doubt, fear, and anxiety; freedom from all dislike, envy and enmity.

Evil is a state of ignorance, of undevelopment and as such it recedes and disappears before the light of knowledge.
