Mine is a comedian who breaks me down and then build me back up again. I cannot understand how anyone can reconcile and re-integrate with their dark
side without developing an extraordinary sense of humor, and charm. If he's too serious, or stonelike, then I will break him down until he falls to
pieces and I get to have the last laugh and in between, he just sits there in the back of my mind as a Hintergendanken, which is a German word meaning
"ulterior motives" and there, continues to serve as a delightfully mischievous and irreducible rascality but because he wields a double edged sword he
must be very careful, so he's also well contained but certainly not discarded or excorsized because then, if the house is all swept and clean he'll
come back with "friends" and I'll be much worse off than if I simply accepted him in the first place and neither of us would like to lose our sense of
humor. So I would say that I've made my demon a friend, maybe even a future angel in disguise and now we're both one and the same.
We cannot kill or be rid of anything, and what we resist only persists.
So eventually, there's a great joke to be had at the expense of the devil within, and we've both taught each other how to laugh my demon and me.
It's been a rough road getting to this point though.
If he robs you of your sense of humor well then he just has to go because there's nothing worse than a serious, humorless demon without compassion
without love, just willfulness. I fear for people in that predicament, and if I could I would intentionally hurt their feelings until they might
breakdown and cry, and that's not from my demon, but my will to love.
