Angel? Demon?

angelsThe truth is that at some deep unconscious level we’re all broken. The sad truth of this world is that we’ve all been broken, lied to, cheated, or left behind. We’ve all lost something and we all miss people we’ve never even met. We all attach a certain melancholic beauty to memories that never even happened.

There’s good and bad in every person you meet. There’s beauty in searching for the good parts, there’s something noble about pretending that their light is all you see.

But there’s a demon inside each and everyone of us.

It’s just a matter of perspective. The entire world is inside your soul, contain by your thoughts and your feelings. Nothing outside your self can truly hurt you unless you let it.

Simply put, life is a matter of choice.

You can choose love or you can choose hate. You can choose courage or you can choose cowardice. You can choose to be passionate, optimistic, full of life, or you can choose to be gloom and depressed and angry at all the people who hurt you in the past.

You can choose what you see.

There’s great freedom in being aware of that, for people often spend their days feeling as if they don’t have a choice. Indeed, we don’t have a choice over what happens in our lives and when, but we do choose what we think about those events. We are the only ones who derive meaning or pleasure from an experience.

But, of course, it requires a tremendous amount of energy to battle with your demons.

The hardest battle we fight is with ourselves. With our own negative beliefs and our self-imposed limits and what we perceive of being burdens of the past. What should come out of such a battle? A better you; in order to become the person you want to be you need to sacrifice who you are. You have to let go of the past, let go of those demons.

Change is not only possible, but necessary.

So, yes… we all have our demons. But they can be slain, no matter what we think about them any given day. It just takes time…

    “The truth is that at some deep unconscious level we’re all broken.”

    I realize that every time I watch the opening five minutes of “The View.”

    Inspiring!
    I was reading a fable not later than yesterday about the thoughts you have expressed here.
    I will try to summarize to add a comment to your post.
    A boy is talking to his spiritual guru and enquiring about angel and demon.
    Master says we are all possessed by two wolves . One is greed, self pity, anger,jealousy,lust,competition, vengeance,spite and negativity.
    The other wolf is love,compassion,forgiveness,endurance,kindness,positivity.
    These two wolves are always fighting deep inside us.
    Boy asked
    Which of these two wolves will win the fight!
    Master (Guru) answered
    The one you feed!
    I trust that we are all embodiments of love ❤️ hence we will win the fight.
    Thank you 😊

    This is such a wonderful write-up! So to the point and the theme itself is one great theme!
    I too believe that we all can achieve what we want only when we give ourselves the freedom of letting go all our demons residing within us and all our negative thoughts. We need to let in the positive vibes!
    Great post!
