The animus as the good or the evil drive
The animus can appear in the energy of the raw drive or as a drive from love and thus negative or positive. In its negative form it is the drive out of lack, the naked drive ("ANIMAL") or the drive out of negativity such as fear, pain, lack and feeling of deficit, the whip in the neck that mercilessly drives to peak performance ("DEVIL"). In its positive form, it is the passion for good, the drive from love, trust and mercy ("CHRIST").
Power or love? Drive or consciousness?
As a life instinct, however, it is first of all value-neutral. It means life force that rises to consciousness. Once it has achieved this, the human being is challenged to decide: Does he want to live power or love? Does he want to take or give? Does he want to realise his ego and live his urges or does he seek a higher goal and a greater truth? (S. Life and the Serpent: Ascent and Descent.).
The evaluation, the judgement as a consequence of "evil" and a means of power of the ego
The evaluation "good or bad" is already the consequence of the "fall" from wholeness. It emerges with negative energy (devaluation) when the problem is already in the room. On its stage enters the ego The "problem" comes into play, which is immediately on the spot with rejection and condemnation.
Neutrality and solution orientation!
So that one can set out on a constructive path with one's loving consciousness, it is better to renounce judgement. In this way, the ego with its addiction to negativity is given no room and instead a solution or redemption can be sought. Reflecting on difficult circumstances and experiences is only justified if it is possible to recognise what should be done better in the future. (S. How do I concretely steer my life in a positive direction?).
