Well I have reached the end of my outing of the Satans and it feels good. There was a time that they made me nervous, uneasy, and maybe they still should. I see them as the great usurpers. They have no power except what we give them. No matter, whatever they are, even if they are just a psychological tool I fashioned for my personal growth; they are. Whatever capabilities they have remain as they were regardless of my activity. I see them, and when I do, I work to dismiss them and there is real power in that. It works. It changes my life.
As a mystic I believe that spiritual realities can be understood and that is as an all-encompassing, singular motivation, in my life. I believe I see the spiritual world and that there is a personal value in sharing my experience. So I do.
There is but one type of Satan that remains for me to flesh out, for my benefit, as well as the curiosity of those of you who are interested. It has no name that I know of and that is a curiosity I will not pursue here. This one, disguises itself in two ways. You could call it a Trojan Horse. You can not see it because it is thin, as a piece of paper. It is an envelope and contains a vast collection of satanic energy in the form of a variety of Satans and Demons. When we encounter this one we see it as an acquaintance, a person we know and the envelope is passed to us. There are tricks that enable this. Ignorance concerning our acquaintance is one way and another is false associations we make about the person. Both of these postures, of considering another person, create shadows and that darkness allows for the movement of Satans.
The alternative to this posture of shadows is to accept all persons as they are. To make an observation of who and how without projecting false judgements or turning a blind eye. If we manage a state of honest objectivity, deception fails. Our spiritual and psychological health thrives and things are seen as they are.
The shadows and darkness in our lives, we create, and they in turn are haunted by the creatures that live there. We can create a life, a place for our self, free of shadows and darkness, where things are seen as they are. When we do this providence is more pronounced and the understandings and activities that best serve us are more apparent.
