Just asking here.
Why are so many of us prone to project our worst fears onto an outside force?
Why not just own up to the what we can know without the projection? That we are having the thoughts we are having while we are having them. As such, WE are responsible for them.
This site is devoted to non-violent change. The motto is "be the change you seek" not 'the devil made me do it, think it, or eat it.'
Bottom line here is this: with or without god, flesh or the devil, we each can choose to live better lives, and change those things about ourselves which are not compassionate and loving. I mean, that's what it's all about isn't it?
Be the love you seek.
