The Redeemer Of Souls
As you walk through the gates of Hell, you bare witness to countless abominations and atrocities. Ghosts, Demons and Shadow People taunting you at every turn. Awful odours filling your nostrils, unpleasant tastes forming in your mouth as you struggle to breath. The physical and mental strain beyond anything you could imagine in the physical world. Doubt and unease filling your mind as you ask yourself "Can I make it through?"
Finally you are there. Before you, on a broad throne, sits the Evil One. His mere appearance reeks of evil and fear. He cackles loudly at your approach, attempting to thwart your resolve and place greater doubt into your already stressed mind. The atmosphere is one of fear, hatred and madness; pure evil.
You have two choices:
1) Become consumed by feelings without such as hate and fear
This is what Satan wants. As soon as you show the first glimmer of these feelings, Satan and his minions will capitalise on your weaknesses and cause you to go insane. There is no escape from a perpetual existence of torment and suffering. All is lost.
2) Become consumed by feelings within such as love and compassion
Concentrate on love, peace and compassion. Show that you can empathise with the Devil and his situation. How will the Evil One respond?

Do you know any candidates for the second option? Do you know any Redeemers of Souls?edit on 1/4/2012 by Dark Ghost because: formatting
Before you, on a broad throne, sits the Evil One.
You speak of ego, the illusionary aspect of the human mind - the unconscious mind. The mind outside of the ego is the true self bereft of ego - it is true consciousness (oneness). In some of your other posts above, you mention "evil one" and it's thoughts, and so on. That is all ego, deified by the human condition; even you deify it by saying it sits upon a throne. There is no evil one, there is no evil at all, because those things are illusions crafted by an even greater illusion that is the ego, like shadow puppets where the ego is the hand casting images that aren't really there. Take out the ego and it's darkness is gone, then only light remains - only love remains. When we connect to our mind in a state that's devoid of ego, we can create our reality without all the fear and negativity that the ego says we need to be aware of. "Evil" people are always psychopaths to some degree, because their ego is so inflated that there's barely room for good in that false mental state. But they too come from God, and are inherently good once sobered up by either death or an awakening, no matter how evil they seemed in this life. They'll still feel the pain they caused on others, but that's because we are compassionate and empathetic of each other.

When you are trapped in the mind you are crazy!! Because you believe what the mind tells you and the mind can never make it's mind up, you will be confused forever. This is the human condition, have a look at the world around you, does it look sane?
If you step outside the mind and watch what it does you will not be so taken in by it's stupidity, it is laughable.edit on 1-4-2012 by Itisnowagain because: (no reason given)
