What is Zen?

Zen is a total state of focus that incorporates a total togetherness of body and mind. Zen is a way of being. It also is a state of mind. Zen involves dropping illusion and seeing things without distortion created by your own thoughts.

Demons (Day 33)

February 2, 2014

     He came as a thief in the night.  He was swift, quiet, unnoticed.  To the untrained eye, he didn't exist.  Pushing his vile mind changing serum upon his willing victims.  The victim taking it down willingly, adamantly, adoringly; even. The persuasion no longer in existence, just a quick hand over exchange of personality for poison.  As each sip of poison was consumed the demons power was more and more visible.  And the dead silence of his host right before the storm, that is the gate opening to the performance.  It consumes its quarry and becomes so powerful it strikes fear in the hearts of lovers. Its roar and dis-value to life can be heard in the depths of hell.  No regard to the hearts broken, tears wept, scars that it leaves.  Never looking back...

     How many of us have had a demon within us?  How many of us have seen one in a friend, family member, or coworker?  We would be lying if any of us said, "no".  For some of us it comes in the form of lying, drinking, cheating, money.  What ever we let consume us and take over our lives are those demons.  We we forget our spirituality, family, work, or life and those demons effect any of those areas of our lives, we have let those demons take control.  Let's face it...we all have them.  Those things that take over our lives.  But it is only a problem if we don't recognize it before it's too late.  Let them take over and take our lives from us.  When we don't learn from our mistakes.  Say we are sorry and don't change what made us sorry.

     James 4:7 Submit yourselves therefore to God.  Resist the devil, and he will flee from you.

     Good news my friends and family.  God gives us an out. He has given us the chance to free ourselves from those demons that posses us.  He has given his life for us.  I am so thankful that I have a way out, a way to get free from the devil and his powerful control.  I hope you find yours and you put on God's shield of faith.  Go forth today and conquer your demons and set yourself free!
