INNER DEMON, DOPPELGANGER
Erle Frayne D. Argonza
Magandang hapon! Good afternoon!
Almost everyone experiences fear, among which is the fear of the Devil. Why not re-examine your behavior, and one time or another you’d be going through the rituals of demonizing people around you: neighbor, fellow officesmate, Saddam Hussein, or anybody outside of you who would exemplify the Demon-incarnate.
Fellows, the demon is right inside of you, so please don’t over-bother yourself with looking for demons outside of you. True, there are ‘devils’ (fallen angels, negative aliens of the Reptilian type) and ‘demons’ (interdimensional demented beings) everywhere, but you failed to see this Inner Demon inside of you. Mind you, we all have this petty demon inside of us, and it matters how we manage to rise above its dictates on us—through the Primal Self, or desire-driven pursuits.
Inside of us too is an ‘etheric double’ that looks just like us. It is our doppelganger, and at times it can disengage from us, show up elsewhere and materialize right there, looking exactly just like us, and then moves back to be re-integrated into your physical body. The doppelganger is the repository of everything negative in us, becomes our ghost when our soul departs with the astral body, and disintegrates after around 500 years or so. Our Inner Demon necessarily nestles in the doppelganger, they are One.
Since we all tap Light from above, at varying grades of intensity (masters and mystics tap the greatest), the question that arises is: for what purpose do we use that Light? If 51% of the time the Light is used for Primal pursuits, than chances are that we have become Demonic or moved over to our Dark Side, ceased to be human, and is a hazardous Thing that moves around freely.
If at least 51% of the time the Light is used for service-for-others, loving others, productive pursuits, and constructive engagements, than we end up more human at the end of our life. Better if 75% of the time we use the Light or ‘spirit’ for higher purposes, and only 25% or lower for primal-sinning purposes. This way, we have a chance to evolve a bit higher, and when we reincarnate at some other time, we will be of a better quality of being.
What do we do to get this Inner Demon down the drain? Tough question, fellow Earthan. Should we control our passions, thus ending up with a tamed Inner Demon? Lucifer taught us that Path before, and it backfired. I am myself not in frequency with those who use a ‘passion control’ method, like the Born Again, fundamentalists, and their likes who are, in effect, wittingly or unwittingly serving Lucifer. Controlling passions will only lead to our repetitive return in the physical plane without nary a bit of soul improvement. Lucifer saw the result of his flawed prescription, and he never repented at all about it. Bad! Arrogant! From a Being of so much Light, a producer of Light himself, who till the end of his “last breath” was producing Light and sharing this to His own minions.
The better way is through gradual deprogramming renunciation. Gradually, deprogram each of your vices (opposite of virtues), and then consequently build virtues. This is not the same as controlling passions. On the contrary, if passions strike you while still young, go ahead and flow with it for a while, and then realizing thereafter that flowing with the Primal brings you down, then you yourself with rise up above the passions and flow with the Light or beneficial energies instead.
Remember the story of Mary Magdala? She rode astride her Inner Demon for some time, both for survival (she has to make a living through commercial sex) and probably for pleasure (sex, wine, controlling people were damn good pleasures). Until the World Teacher, Jesus Christ, arrived in her life and she had this paradigm shift.
Now, do you ever know of any occasion when Jesus condemned passions the way Lucifer did? “He who hasn’t sinned will cast the first stone,” was his candid declaration to the folks who wished to condemn a sex worker & sinner. In that process, the respective Inner Demon of the folks were projected unconsciously on the sinner, and as a matter of expiation exercise they would have stoned their own same Inner Demon. And the horror of it is that another person will die due to their own sinfulness. See?
In some previous writings of mine, I already elaborated on the matter of deprogramming of vices, building virtues, the use of prayers and meditations for enhancing divinity, and related spiritual technologies. They are the ones that are easily applicable and practicable, so I’m recommending that you examine their efficacy.
Again, fellow Earthans, let me repeat, the more dangerous Inner Demon is just right inside of you rather than those external ones. Even if there were 1 Billion demons and devils surrounding you, like they did to the baby
Krishna, if you are vibrating
at higher frequency, are virtuous and possess a strong aura that is truly
protective of your being, then those Evil Ones will never be able to attack nor
destroy you. On the contrary, they would snub you, feeling frustrated and
giving up on their annoying abominations.
So, Dear One, please work out to tame your Inner Demon and your doppelganger as well. Don’t enslave it as this will certainly lead to schizophrenia. If you get to that point of manic-depressive disorder, your Inner Demon-doppelganger will then invite external Evil Ones who will possess you collectively. It may take another lifetime before the possession will be corrected and healed. Or, you may end up becoming demonic yourself, and may take many lives before you attain relative self-integration.
Learn how to dance with your Inner Demon and eventually tame it, making it conform to your will. It can be done, mind you, yes it can. The various teachers and masters have demonstrated to us the tools to do them. Have the will, courage, patience, you will be able to tame this Inner Demon. May you succeed in this noble task of yours. Carpe diem!
