Devil In The Details… taking the Dragon for a walk
The previous post that I wrote about the mock murders, and climbing out of the pit, girls night out and the most recent about I am gonna marry the night.. like lady Gaga does..were all leading up to this post..It was a plan…even in my living the plan to lead up to an example of facing the inner Devil..
Please don’t be afraid of some of the images that I use here..don’t be afriad of facing your inner devil as I have faced mine..this is the entire piont..to face down fear.. is to win in life..let me first explain to you who and what the Devil is…
Adversary – opponent or enemy
Opponent – person one is working against in a contest, battle or argument..
This can bring about a fall into the lowerself; but if one rises to the challange the fall can bring about intense growth; change and therefore – SUCCESS
When the inner Devil is not faced ( fear and pain ) it leads to a life of suffering from addictive behavior – workaholisum – drinking – drug addiction – sex addiction – greed – jelousy – hatred and judgment.
We must learn to embrase fear and pain, self doubt – so that life becomes a learning experience so that the knowledge of the physical world teaches us to transcend toward a higher spiritual awareness.
The gift of the Devil ( ego ) is to achieve personal recognition – to succed at this one must face their own inner Devil down – own their pain, fear and weakness to tame the inner beast. We all have an ego, to master the ego is to accept the existance of such to free the self of the guilt of bondage and to free the self of addiction, from lack of expression..so that all the part of the self are unified.. ( divided we fall united we stand) you can stand strong in yourself with self acceptance of all the negative and postive parts of your ego or personality.
Another example of the Devil having power over you is in the form of self enslavement – it may be from letting others enslave us with aggressive and violent manipulation, control that is enflicted with abuse in our relationships with or in our own enslavement from over-indulgence in greed, lust that become SELF-DESTRUCTIVE
By facing fear and pain we take back that control..
In writing this to you I am not claiming to be a Saint in any sense of the word.. I have my inner Devil that I face daily..I have shown you by example..in myself.. it can be seen by some as foolish or it can be seen as brave.
In the postive the Devil repressents a healthy lust for life and competition, passion, physical attration, the impulse to succeed and a healthy sex drive that is needed to experience the pleasures of life
The Devil in all of us is needed for child’s play, mischief, dirty jokes, hot sex, getting into a little trouble to blow off steam and stress – a lust for life and adventure.
The human race is evolving spiritualy as our childish views on God are maturing as we begin to embrase the good and the evil in ourselves.. as we run into pain and not away from it by facing down fear.
Those who do not want me to write about pain have not faced their own pain down. It is their Inner Devil saying…
” IF YOU FACE YOUR PAIN YOU WILL SEE ME HIDING IN YOUR PAIN. I DON’T WANT YOU TO SEE ME; BECAUSE I AM EVIL, PURE DARKNESS AND I GROW HERE IN THE DARK. I GROW HERE LIKE CANCER; I DIG DEEP INTO YOUR SOUL, I EAT YOU PIECE BY PIECE, I AM THE SOUL EATER. I CREATE YOUR NIGHTMARES, I CREATE YOUR ANGER, I CREATE YOUR JELOUSLY, I MAKE YOU AFRAID TO STAND OUT, TO SPEAK YOUR MIND. I DON’T WANT YOU TO FACE YOU PAIN AND FEAR. NO, I DON’T CAUSE I LIVE IN IT HERE!”
This is the Devil’s voice; pure slithering evil. Dark fear.
Run in to the dark – take off the chains that you have let him put on you, by not facing your own pain and fear..
Face him and kiss him.. laugh in his face..take him off gaurd as you slip the chains and collar around his neck..and with a clink.. make him your bitch..
Now take the Dragon for a walk.. he is your bitch now..
You own him when you are not afraid to succeed – when you face fear and pain with humor. When you rise to the occation, when your opponent gets up in your face..
People can feel your energy; when you take your Dragon for a walk, you are confident; assertive, adventurous and playful.. and you are not afraid to show your tears or your pain..
