Let's talk about Demons.
Do they exist? You're damn
right they do. But they're not what you think. The truth may be worse than the
myths that prevail which prevent us from confronting demons and putting them to
rest because the myths describe their existence so inanely, no level-headed
person will consider the idea seriously.
So, what are Demons really?
The word Demon is an etymon
of the Hebrew word Dimayon, which means both imagination and likeness and
Who are the people who most
resemble us? Why Our Relatives, of course.
Dam, which we see as the beginning consonants of both Dimayon and Demon means blood in Hebrew.
One of the Hebrew words for
Relative is Krovim (literally those close to Us). Krovim is a very close
anagram of the word Kavurim, which means those who are buried.
Demons are the Souls of Our
Relatives, living and dead, that are buried within us. They are buried in Our
Bodies, the activity of which is subconscious for the most part, and they are
buried in Our subconscious minds, to which we have little access.
Our Family members, both
those who are living now and those who are dead (we'll get to that later), are
Recombinant genes simply
means that Our Relatives and Our Ancestors are anagrams of Us, sort of like isotopes
of Us. You and Your Family members are the same Chapter in the Book of Life,
just slightly scrambled so that you resemble one another, but aren't exact
When people look into their
"past lives", they are actually looking at their Ancestors. Their
Ancestors are themselves, just slightly scrambled and in more crude iteration.
The mix provides not only individuality, but also variation on the same themes
so that the various lessons in Life that Your Family and You are undertaking
can be looked at from different perspectives, thus more comprehensively.
You were lucky enough to
inherit the moral merits of Your Ancestors in the form of Your various Talents,
Your Intelligence, Your healthy Relationships, Your basic Personality, Your
good Looks (which are not only skin deep, but are actually a typographical map
of Your History) and all of the other things You like about YourSelf.
You have also inherited
their moral demerits. They exist in You in the form of the gnawing Disquietude
We all feel (also called hauntings), the Tragedies that befall Us, Your
Illnesses, Your Challenges, Your Debts, Your Troubles, Your Pain, Your
Confusion, Your Disappointments, Your feelings of Unreality.
Jung was spot on when he
said: “When an inner situation is not made conscious, it happens outside as fate.” This is true
of all of the good and bad in Your Life that you inherited from Your Ancestors,
i.e., earlier versions of You.
Do we have free will? We
have varying degrees of free will depending upon how much "fixing" we
have to do for Our Ancestors (earlier iterations of OurSelves) and for and with
Our current Family members (other version of OurSelves). If We have a lot to
fix for Great Uncle Bob or Great Great Grandmother Milly, We will not have
maximal free will. We will be free to choose whether We confront the situations
we will surely be faced with honestly and courageously or not, but We will not
choose which situations with whichWe are confronted.
If Our Ancestors left this
world in a state of moral debt (or moral decrepitude), They are
"undead". They are in a dormant state, only dimly conscious (just as
We are only dimly conscious of Them), but Their Spirit does not rest. They are
constantly nagging You, and Your Relatives, to make things right for them. This
is a true haunting. These undead Spirits will present themselves to You in the
form of all kinds of unwanted and disturbing Situations and Relationships.
The most disturbing and
troublesome of the Demons buried in Our Bodies and in Our Subconscious, but not
in a state of rest are the "fallen angels". That is another way of
saying the embryos and feti whose Lives were terminated either because they
miscarried spontaneously or because they were intentionally aborted. These
Spirits are extremely powerful, much more powerful than the Spirits of adults,
and they are most disturbing and the way in which They express Their agitation
is extremely anti-social because they never lived to become enculturated. For
every miscarried or aborted embryo or fetus, there is also either heartbroken
Parents or Parents who decided to abort the fetus intentionally. In either case,
they too are not at rest. In the former case, their grief doesn't allow them to
rest. In the second case, their guilt does not allow them to rest. If you've
got an aborted baby in Your past, i.e., if You were an aborted baby - You've
got issues and they need to be addressed and brought to Peace. Any are there
any among us who does not have aborted Souls in Our past? Not likely. These are
most disturbing and irrational and manageable situations in Our Lives.
If a Psychopath is in Your Life, You've got undead Ancestors, most likely a
completely unenculturated aborted Fetus (or two, or three…) who need Your help to
live the Life they missed and are constantly clawing desperately at You from
within to help them. You are obliged to do so, because, remember, They are
earlier iterations (versions) of You. So long as there is a very disturbed Spirit
within You, You will attract Psychopaths who will put you into crisis
situations that will force You to either grow fast or get mulched so that the
next version of You can replace You and go about the unfinished business of
It shouldn't be thought that if we have a good deal of trouble, Woe or Pain in
Our Lives that we are defective or in a state of terrible guilt. We simply have
to rectify something that went off kilter somewhere along our Soul's path.
Ample opportunity will present itself to do so throughout our Lives. You may be
sure that Everyone you see around You has work to do as well. If not, They
would not be here.
material" and Our subconscious minds are oceanic - they contain the depths
of everything we were and everything we will be.
Most of us should not
concern Ourselves with the details of those past lives. To do so is not only
maudlin and macabre, it is counterproductive. All of their unfinished business
is present in Our Lives in the form of Our Relationships and situations.
It is imperative that we
make the best of Our Lives so that we do not continue to live in a half-dead
but disquieted twilight state in which we are victim to all sorts of unpleasant
and unwanted situations in which we are constantly trying to fix something and
pay of moral debts and begin to live fully, creatively and proactively.
