the ROOT of all EVIL

The issue of authority is really a question of authorship. When you have an authority problem, it is always because you believe you are the author of yourself and project your delusion onto others. You then perceive the situation as one in which others are literally fighting you for your authorship. This is the fundamental error of all those who believe they have usurped the power of God.Being uncertain of your true Authorship, you believe that your creation was anonymous. This leaves you in a position where it sounds meaningful to believe that you created yourself. The dispute over authorship has left such uncertainty in your mind that it may even doubt whether you really exist at all.

Inquiry
What is the root of all evil?
What myths or theories can you think of that illustrate and perhaps even justify this problem?How do I encounter or in better words “author” this in my day to day experience?
Through what action of mind do I perpetuate the problem?
How are you restored to your true Authorship?
