Today we look into the source of the darkest evil known. The evil nature of mankind. The Algonquin speaking Cree nation call it Wetiko. In the book Dispelling Wetiko: Breaking the Curse of Evil, author Paul Levy took on the massive task of untangling the processes of how an unseen, untraceable spiritual virus has infected minds and souls of humans. There are multiple references of Wetiko throughout indigenous culture, Jungian analysis and spiritual teaching. Carl Jung’s psychological theory of the human shadow run parallel in many instances when learning about how Wetiko works through our unconscious state as individuals and collectively. Levy has also gone into great depth in describing the many facets of Wetiko’s influence and how it targets those who ignore this ancient psychospiritual disease of the soul. By realizing that we’re all capable of terrible evil unwittingly or not is a beginning to dissolve its strength.
