No matter who are you or where you are from..we all have inner demons...where do they come from?

From our inner mind or soul?

Why do we have darker days than others?

Why some days we would like to behave like demons and other days we like to act like saints? Is something imposed from society, the media, the advertising campaigns? Or are we really that way? Is it our nature to be like that?

Vesuvius, come now, the soul is perfect and all good and loving. if we have inner demons, it is only our selves to blame. The ego wants us to stay comfortable and in control where our soul wants to grow and expand and evolve.

Who is the thinker of your thoughts if your thoughts occur to you?
Are you always the initiator of your thoughts?
Why do we say "I got this idea?"
So if we are the observer of our thoughts (most of the time), who do we give credit to?
Shout we give credit to God for the good thoughts and the Devil for the bad thoughts?

come to think of it, we already do that.

But wait a minute.... they say that God is within.

if so ......where is the Devil?

inside too....?

(23 Aug '10, 12:01) Robert

I think so Robert. But maybe not inside like inside your own basement. but inside, like inside the same telephone directory within yourself where you receive guidance from God.

try this;
if we are one with the earth and all of it, an aspect of our sadness may be the picking up the sad vibrations of our world; let them go, think of the polar opposite and as it cools your defensiveness,
look for other colors,of lighter hue.

I read your question and remembered the passage from the Tao Te Ching .

When you use the Way to conquer the world, Your demons will lose their power to harm. It is not that they lose their power as such, But that they will not harm others; Because they will not harm others, You will not harm others: When neither you nor your demons can do harm, You will be at peace with them.

So as to Light so as to Darkness

Darkness to Light

Happiness to Sadness

Sadness to Happiness

Good to Evil

Evil to Good

Rich to Poor

Poor to Rich

Positive to Negative

Negative to Positive

As the old saying goes, there are always two sides to a coin.
