You are expressing yourself just fine; I'm the delirious one here (pain medication etc.) Tara was just a girl who really wanted to become a monk so I have a lot of respect for her. Making her a god and how various entities evil or divine can take advantage of that is another issue (I don't remember what I said in this thread). Buddhism is a cover for their version of a secret society as is Christianity, Taoism, Hindu etc.--they all have much to hide so I trust none of them based on my own research. Islam is a bit different but lacks discernment from the beginning...but enough about religions; I've lost interest in all of them. Dante was a Artist so I put him on another level left to the interpretation of readers, right or wrong. When you talk of saints I find that interesting. If you already know the truth you can easily see how honest they are and how accurate they are or when they cave to their institution of choice. Moving on...there is a huge difference between a Devil and demons, but you seem to know that. The king of devils, or Satan, might be a required experience at some point. He seemed confined, in my experience, to his golden hall where he has his golden throne from where he easily conducts events around the world. BTW it was interesting to learn that the indigenous culture from where I used to live had old stories that paralleled everything I experienced. But I think all cultures do that to a certain extent. So, before doing any research, I was brought before Satan to test my reaction. I was impressed and wanted to learn but reflexively brought God down into the situation then satan cowered and I was ejected from the location. My impression was he was no longer as powerful as a devil with more mobility, like one who would rule these shadow entities.
Agreed, and I have nothing to prove.
I agree. Sort of like Earth will cease to exist. I guess God could reduce hell to a single element like a lake of fire and then the eternal beings would have nowhere to go, but that's just speculation on my part. I am more inclined to think that since they thrive on destruction they might even enjoy the destruction of their own habitat. It's all so mixed up with earth at the moment(like Jinn) I think it adds to the suffering: hot cold wet dry foggy burning ice etc. these are things people can relate to...more speculation.
Yeah it all bleeds over into your physical life. Even if successful in other realms they can still hit you where you live, physically.
IMO <-------to ward off skeptical arguments.
