The philosophic man has to make up his mind that his attitude towards every experience counts more than the experience itself, that the way he thinks of it will either help or hurt his spiritual evolution. If his reaction to an event weakens his character and dulls his intuition, then it is really an evil one for him; if, however, his reaction is to utilize it for his spiritual growth, then it will in the end be a fortunate event.
