Go to the dark side!! Lianna I'm your father
Seriously though. When being indoctrinated, with whatever idealism, it is natural that at a certain time you start to wonder what the opposite side is
like. It's ok to explore it, within reason. You can't understand what something is unless you also understand what the opposite is.
This is why most people don't know themselves no matter what they think. People refuse to see their negative side, let alone accept it is there. By
doing this they're refusing an important aspect of themselves and how do you think they can grow as individuals if they ignore aspects of
There is also a difference in Knowing (knowledge) and truly knowing (wisdom). Everyone can gain knowledge about anything they wish, but this does not
make them understand anything. You won't understand and grow in wisdom and strenght unless you experience your knowledge firsthand. The most
learnfull moments in life are the ones that cause distress and push you to your limits to seek a solution.
That said...only a rare few here know what "light" and "peace" is because they never experienced the other side. They talk about it, they have
knowledge about it, but they don't understand it. And I'm not talking about pubelescent rebellion as being "the dark" aspect of life, because
everone undergoes that and it is natural. Try going further, explore, no harm can come from it. At the end, if you do die, so what you'll be an
experience richer and be reincarnated.
Since you're a Christian believer...ever heard the story of the little angel that was inside the sun saying it was so light. God said, how do you
know it is light? Do you know what darkness is? The angel didn't know and was send to the darkest corner of the universe. Once there the angel got
scared and yelled "Oh father why have you forsaken me". But god said "I never forsaken you, because I'm everywhere...including darkness".
Demons are manmade, christian made even. Mankind couldn't fathom the teachings of Christ so they had to create an opposite....therefore satan was
born. Because Christianity was trying to reform the world they took symbols of other religions like greek/roman. Other religions they didn't deem
"right"according their own set of morals and called everything Paganus (latin for "he who lives in the fields"). Even Hinduiusm and Buddhism were
put in that catagory :S.
Christians took Baphomet, a god of nature, and used it as icon to represent Satan. Fools they are. God is all, both the positive as the negative.
Demons don't excist, however people fight psychological aspects within themselves which they refer to as demons. Instead of seeking the strengt or
root of the problem within themselves most people rather put the blaming finger to an outside source like demons and satan like gods, while in fact
they are causingn 85-90% of all the problems themselves.
But true demons are called Daemons which means Spirit. Spirits have no human morality of Good or Evil, they just are. They will help you or not
depending on what they see and they see more then we do. Demons is a christian word, Daemons are not.
As for "bad" entities, they aren't demons and cover a whole other load. Simply because they are more human then anything else.
Remember that NO ONE is in charge or control over you. God gave you free will so use it. If some entity or "demon" tries to persuade you by putting
ideas into your head...keep in mind that you're the one in charge of making the final decision and acting upon it. No one else is responsible for
your actions and decisions made. Same goes for people in daily live, they can only advice you, but the final decision is and always will be your own.
And you are responsible for the outcome not some supposed entitiy or manipulative friend.
