Man’s law is akin to the ‘devil mixed with God’. Sadly the lower in most all walks of life dominates. Take the ‘garbage strikes’ in NYC in the middle of a hot summer. Garbage men controlled the city. In a relationship, the lower dominates, of course sometimes both are being the lower. The higher wins through time and using the method of ‘making highest choices’. Sometimes, both are the higher but decisions happen with the one choosing to best serve themselves with little compassion and communication necessary for the other one because what serves one does the other.
The ‘devil’ is an aphorism for that which is the harmful and negative. All life wants the best of choices for it’s survival, although largely because of embedded and attached memories from prior negative experiences, we often become oblivious to them. Having a dozen or so residents here, it’s an opportunity to remind some of them that a secret to life everywhere is to leave everything either as you found it or better. Simple? Not always. Negative habits and behaviors are deeply ingrained in many as well as their instant unconscious justification. Seek to be the best you can be in all interactions.
The Devil comes in the form of people, and especially people who do good and then turn around to do bad. It’s devilishness or God poisoned! God can be like trying to grab water, but the devil lurks everywhere waiting for you to give up on love, awareness, and common sense. Never give up doing that which is the highest of choices. Short cuts often come with life’s karmas as a punishment for cheating what’s the best choice.
Bad habits are the devil’s corruption, and once done are easy to repeat as you find ways to justify them. Good habits evolve your spiritual journey. There is no evolving journey to be a better person if bad habits are not replaced by good ones, and unresolved issue are let go of. Mankind is living in the best opportune time ever. Technology is being developed light years ahead of the collective human evolvement but for the 3-5% at best who are thankful for opportunity. Being an astute watcher of people having interactions with thousands and more monthly I can assuredly say that I have to wonder if most have evolved beyond the Neanderthal? Thank god for the few who are thankful for this chance to evolve as humans.
Life isn’t meant to be easy. It’s meant to be lived. Sometimes happy, other times rough or sad. But with every up and down you learn lessons that make you stronger. No matter how educated, talented, rich or cool you believe you are, how you treat others ultimately tells all. Be like godliness, or sluff-off through life and be friends with the devil while in denial of it. Your choice! Don’t trust everything you see. Even salt looks like sugar.
