In Autobiography of a Yogi, Paramahansa Yogananda says,

"If you could see what is going on behind the screen of this life, you wouldn't suffer at all. Life is a cosmic movie (projected within the screen of consciousness). I look at the beam of God's light, which is projecting these scenes on the screen of life (consciousness). I see the pictures of the whole universe coming from this beam.  

It is only because we identify with the play too much (as being real) that we are in trouble. Without shadows as well as light (contrasts) there could be no picture. Therefore, evil (contrasting with good) is the shadow of God that makes this play possible. God wants us to behave with detachment realizing we are only actors or observers in his cosmic movie."
