One May Say...

I was thinking of ways to subjugate the Devil this morning and instead of postulating about all the possibilities such as ignoring, confrontation, etc. I decided to just ramble about the nature of the archetype.

Several years ago I undertook a study to define the new evil in our world. It was a request to my readers about what they thought was truly evil on this plane of ours. I received some predicable responses dealing with kiddie porn, Teletubbies, and Osama Bin Laden. I, myself believe that Katie Couric is the Devil, but that's a whole other website.

A peripheral question to the evil one (pun-free statement) is the ancient pondering, "is there no truth in beauty??" For many believe that what is evil cannot look pretty. I believe this is erroneous.

I am not superstitious at a great length, but somewhat. For me, the Devil is anything which is opposite of your Will. And while you can get the Devil and his cadre to do contract work, they are a little unreliable in the long-term arena. Recognizing the devils in my life takes time. I have demons but they are less than something which acts as a constant headwind to hinder me.

My constraints are few and yet I look for the underpinnings of many things in order to understand the nature of them. A step in this direction is to ask why one does things in life. The reason.

I hear the steps of morning approach, ever so silently. I dressed and left by wind. And must do so now.
