Siddhartha Gautamo, Buddha..The Awakened One..Rests in a tree hole in Lincoln Nebraska at the Wyuka Cemetery,

Perfectly equiposed and tranquil, at ease, at rest...

Having tasted the flavour of solitude and tranquility, one becomes woeless and stainless, drinking the essence of the joy of Truth.

Dhammapada (Words of Truth and Wisdom) passage #205

What this tells us is that if one endeavors to obtain and taste the flavour of solitude and tranquility, to seek and find peace within oneself..one will indeed become at ease, the woes will vanish, one will become stainless, no evil shall be able to attach itself to the body..

This is not saying evil and negative forces will not try, and try hard, being clever and often times subtle.

One will be able to more easily recognize these forces and take measures to disarm them, to cast them aside...and banish them...

Treat others as one wishes to be treated...
