The Devil Is A Picture Of Our Self
We are shown a picture, and we consent to believe that it is true.
The exoteric is for the general public, but we’re always free to go round the back to see what’s behind the picture.
The esoteric is for the few who make the effort.
“Do not give dogs what is holy; do not throw your pearls before swine. If you do, they may trample them under their feet, and then turn and tear you to pieces. Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened …”
The ‘door’ is our own mind that opens to essence, and therefore, blessings of clarity.
We, the general public, pay for everything and then keep coming back to pay more. Those who know are free to walk away, letting go: they know when they have enough. Being free to walk away liberation from clinging to the ideas and rituals of the collective. When the door opens, creative inspiration abounds in abundance. Why would you consent to anything less?
Alternatively, you could ‘sell your soul to the devil’ … if you had one. 😀 You see, the idea of a soul is a myth: it is supposed to be your essence, when in fact you do not have an essence – you are essence. This essence is so pure that it is empty of anything created. Not being created, it cannot die. The idea of death is part of the illusory picture.
The devil is just a picture of your self. 😀
Always look behind … you!
