A Quote by Julia Butterfly Hill on transformation, attachment, demons, free, social reality, darkness, inner, caterpillar, light, wings, and formation

True transformation occurs only when we can look at ourselves squarely and face our attachments and inner demons, free from the buzz of commercial distraction and false social realities.  We have to retreat into our own cocoons and come face-to-face with who we are.  We have to turn toward our own inner darkness.  For only by abandoning its attachments and facing the darkness does the caterpillar's body begin to spread out and its light, beautiful wings begin to form.

A Quote by Mr. on prophet, demons, personal demons, struggle, overcoming demons, and mr prophet

Some believe that just because I am a prophet, I don't struggle with any personal demons. To be human is to struggle with your own personal demons. The difference between me and many others is I have overcome my demons.

A Quote by St. Teresa of Avila on demons, fear, frightened, attachment, possessions, negative, weapons, and enemies

  "Demons frighten us because we set ourselves up to be frightened. We are overly attached to our reputations and possessions. When we love and desire what we should be rejecting, we are in conflict with our true selves.That's when the negative energies catch us and use our weapons against us. Instead of taking up what we have to defend ourselves, we put our swords in the hands of our enemies and make them attack us."

A Quote by zaadzster_1 on shadow, obstruction, demons, and ignorance

"To move forward, you must figure out exactly what is obstructing you. Whatever it is, it isn't really there; it has no reality, no substance. It's your own creation, a phantom lurking in the shadows of your mind, a shadow demon. Your obstructions are your demons, and your demons are shadow dwellers. They live and thrive in the half-light of ignorance, so the way to slay a demon is by illuminating it with the full force and power of your focused attention; by looking at it, hard. Banish shadow with light and see for yourself that no obstruction exists, nor ever did. We create our demons and we feed them. To awaken we must slay them. That's really the whole process: Slay one demon, take one step.

Repeat."

A Quote by Mitch on demons, angels, ironman, and life

There are mental demons we fight and mental angels that we all carry around; it’s how we deal with them that will determine if we can finish this thing called the Ironman, this thing called life.

A Quote by Machig Labdron on friend, demons, healing, chod, tantra, transformation, and compassion


    With a loving mind, cherish more than a child
    The hostile gods and demons of apparent existence,

        And tenderly surround yourself with them.

    Nourish them always with warm flesh and blood.
    With the hook of love and compassion,
             Befriend them and never dismiss them.
    
    If, with pure noble thought and enlightened resolve,
    You connect them to the sacred Dharma
    And they are freed and established in happiness,
    Then you, child, whoever you are,
    Will be my inseparable friend.
