A follow up on my Padre Pio story:
Saints seem to have a different set of problems with demons than the rest of
us because they emanate such pure light. Another reason for us to be
grateful that we're not perfect yet and to love ourselves, "warts and all."
While demons are drawn to negative energies like hatred, greed, power-lust
and fear, it's also true that the higher one is, the more adversaries one
seems to attract from low places on both the earthly and astral realms. This
may be why Buddha recommended taking the "middle road" and why many shamanic
teachings advise integrating light and dark within ourselves, rather than
striving to be absolutely good.
In his book "Shaking Out the Spirits," Bradford Keeney tells of meeting with
the African holy man, Credo Mutwa. Keeney told him that he "existed in the
center of both good and evil." Credo approved, saying that this "was the
religion of the mother, the religion of relationship and inclusion... Most
world religions are the religion of the father, with its emphasis on division
and attempts to eradicate 'the other'." Later, Credo told Keeney how he
dealt with intrusive entities. "Rather than curse or attack the ghost or
furiously demand that it leave, he establishes a respectful relationship with
it and then asks how he might help it. He then helps the ghost solve its
problem in a way that allows it to stop irritating the people complaining
