'The Devil' is Fear
'The Devil' is Fear
The essence of God is pure, all-encompassing Love, which also creates and sustains this time-space illusion by directing pure awareness through the human mind. To the extent that there is conflict in the mind (ie: thoughts that feel uncomfortable are taken as true), Love's essence projects through the energy of fear, thus immediately creating a disturbing feeling in the body.
'The Devil' is a personification created by the human mind to explain fearful thoughts and feelings that arise within human awareness. What is labeled as 'evil' has manifested in the world and continues to do so according to the fearful thoughts projected by the collective Earth-focused awareness.
With all the conflict, struggle and suffering being lived in the world today, it's apparent that 'The Devil' has been given a substantial amount of power in thought; and the paradox is that the more 'The Devil' is battled against, the more powerful 'The Devil' becomes.
In ignorance to their true identity, 'The Devil' is given life and sustenance by the unconscious (habitual) thought projection of 'good', well-meaning people. 'The Devil' can even consume awareness to the point that malevolence becomes one's only available expression.
Many people are becoming aware that only Love can dissolve the 'need' for fear, but because most are still afraid to embrace 'The Devil', they unwittingly create 'his' presence in their thought projection. While each person holds the power to let love prevail through their projection, to exercise that power one must remember to stay alert to their thoughts with the intent to consciously choose Love.
Specifically, to the one who is alert, 'The Devil' serves to point out one's own ignorance, and calls attention to whatever judgment is hindering the full expression of Beingness. Bearing witness to one's own fearful state leads to absolution of the underlying judgment, thus shaking and eventually dissolving the foundation of belief that 'The Devil' actually exists.
By appreciating one's individualized rendition of 'The Devil', and embracing 'him' without judgment, one can begin to receive and understand the direction of the soul in absolving the fear-inducing thoughts that society has been conditioned to believe.
Each one has the power to use 'The Devil' as a tool to serve the soul's purpose, thereby liberating their self from the polarities of good and evil and finding eternal peace in the 'Heaven' that is always HereNow.
