The mind and the ego has an attachment to outcome. If your 'doing' is expressed with no attachment, or expectation of outcome .. or with no purpose ..
If I have a purpose, I have an expectation.
If I have an expectation, I limit my self .. and what I can become. Purpose is the expression of a need. If there is a need, or expectation of an outcome .. in other words, a purpose, then, by the law of cause and effect, a pair of opposites are produced .. creation and destruction.
Thus, if you focus on "Light and Love" you will create these as thoughforms .. and also create what some term as "dark entities" which are perceived as "Dark and Hatred (or fear)"
But, if the practice is followed without any regard for outcome, then the outcome will follow as a growth or expansion without its opposite.
This is especially symptomatic of those with a Western Spiritual background, and is deeply ingrained in the psyche. So, don't be too hard on yourself if you find this need coming to the surface. Your awareness and acknowledgement is usually enough to see it dissolve.
