The Devil You Know

Spirits of good purpose, where can I find them? The first place to look is where they are naught. It is good to remember providence when embarking on any quest as providence is the source of confidence. In looking for spirits providence is particularly helpful especially in areas where good spirits are naught. There is no place, where awareness, consciousness and sentiency exist, that spirits are absent. While I think some of us do walk with good spirits and ignorance , ignorance is the preferred realm of harmful spirits. Some of us walk in the light of grace and ignorance serves a less sinister purpose allowing the good spirits to populate our surrounding. Grace is also a constant presence and so we each find its light in our life. Ignorance is as a veil of differing density. When we allow it to become dense enough it is denial. Ignorance always filters light to some degree, but denial blocks it entirely. Goodness is a vague term unless I define it. Goodness is associated with grace and providence. With God. All that is good is in the light or gives light.

When we harbor darkness in our thoughts it begins to bundle together the qualities of darkness and block the light. There are spirits that populate the darkness and those spirits crave permanence. Ignorance makes it easy to pretend these spirits do not exist while we forge agreements to assure the darkness these spirits crave. Our personal caches of darkness develop chamber-like reservoirs that harbor dark spirits and behaviors. These are what devils are and it is usual for people to acquaint themselves with them while pretending devils do not exist, or that they are not like this. The spirits that inhabit the devils we create build a web of agreement with the human community propagating ignorance and denial and our collective purchase of it. These spiritual beings have no durable quality. They are as a fiction that we entertain as a reality while pretending they are naught.

The personal devils we create distract us from our acquaintance of good spirits. The good spirits live in the light and we construct darkness inventing an imaginary separation from them. In the dark we imagine all sort of terrible things about what lies there while pretending we can not see it. We know full well what is there, it is required in order to make our agreement to ignore it. We find the beings that live there frightening and ignorance serves its purpose. Demons, Devils and Satans are what populate the darkness we create. They exist in darkness and do not like to be seen. To dismiss them we must meet them and dissolve our agreement with them. They are a fiction and our good spirits await our dismissal of them.
