The Inevitable Demise of Tyranny
Self-destruction is the fate of those who sell their soul for power
Sometimes I have clients who ask how abusers and tyrants get away with their evil acts for so long. They lament the lack of justice in the legal system, which often sides with the abusers. They feel betrayed by the willful ignorance of those who enable the perpetrators and turn a blind eye to their crimes, while smearing those who speak the truth about the abuse. They are often shocked upon being rejected and silenced when they try to warn other targets about the abuse or tyranny.
Some ask, if there is a God or even such a thing as karma, then why is this allowed to happen to so many people? Why are the perpetrators so often getting away with it? How are they able to destroy people’s lives and escape accountability for their actions? Where is the Divine justice?
While we might never totally understand the reasons why it can take so long, one thing that is certain, is that eventually the perpetrators will face their reckoning. The longer they go on and the more they hurt others, the worse the fate of self-destruction will be for them.
Dr. Mattias Desmet says that a totalitarian system will self-destruct. I think he’s right. I see similar patterns on the micro level of interpersonal relationships and how this dynamic also shows up in families and other small social groups.
At the core, both human nature and the order of the cosmos have spiritual implications.
Abusers trick their targets into taking on the blame and responsibility for what happened.
When the abuse is finally called out, the abusers use gaslighting, DARVO, blame-shifting, guilt-tripping, pity ploys and other manipulation tactics. In doing so, they often get the target to become confused and deceived into carrying this burden that is not their own. The abusers continue to transfer their sins on to others through trickery, and somehow this seems to buy them time.
They learned these tactics from the demons who animate them.
Abusers can only postpone their inevitable demise by misplacing the blame on their targets, who accept the unearned guilt through confusion, fear and self-doubt.
Perpetrators revel in the temporary power that their demons give them, however, in signing such soul pacts, they are also consenting to their own destruction. They might reach incredible heights of money, fame and prestige only to lose it all one day. They might get away with cheating and juggling multiple people for years, only to get crushed one day when they meet their match who does the same to them, 10X.
There’s always a tremendous hidden cost when it comes to making pacts with the devil. Sooner or later, and whether in life or death, every abuser will face their fate in Divine timing.
When a target dances with the devil in an abusive relationship or situation, at first they might feel elated and think that they found the perfect partner, friend, job, living situation, etc. This is, of course, how the evil forces usually entice their targets. They look for places of lack, vulnerability and desire and they will speak all the right words to seduce the target into believing that they have the answer to their deepest needs.
Yet inevitably, the target will end up destroyed, often still trying to convince themselves that they really didn’t mean it or it’s not that bad.
The longer a target stays in contact with those serving the demonic forces, the deeper the destruction will cut into their life. The evil becomes like a deeply rooted weed that’s hard to get rid of and just keeps spreading through the garden of one’s life.
One may look for answers in the secular world to eradicate this evil from their life, however true liberation is only found in the spiritual realm, for this is its nature.
This is also true regarding our experiences with the tyranny plaguing the world.
The end of this verse is really important. Admittedly, we can all get caught up arguing with those who are deceiving and lying, or even wasting so much time and energy with the enablers, trying to convince them to wake up and see the truth. At this point in the world events, if people don’t see the truth, it’s because they don’t want to. It’s a more fruitful use of energy and time to continue purifying ourselves, to create a deeper personal relationship with God and to connect with those who are also turning toward God and living in reality.
It’s a lot easier to turn away from evil when it first reveals itself. The longer one continues to engage with it, giving it the benefit of the doubt, making excuses and rationalizations for it, the more dangerous it becomes and the deeper it embeds in a person’s life (or society).
When we are in deep, through our confusion, indifference, fear, compliance and proximity with evil, we are actually delaying the reckoning for those who are doing the evil acts. Instead we can take a clear stance against evil and return to our Divine connection where we are protected, then it is only a matter of time that the evil will self-destruct.
When we repent for our own ignorance and enabling of evil people or situations in life, even if only through the cowardice of not taking a stand sooner, then through self-forgiveness, we can release ourselves from what once bound us to evil and that energy can return to sender.
Probably everyone can relate to having seen the truth about a person or situation that we once hoped was something other than what we were being shown.
Maybe we even addressed this behavior through communication in an attempt to resolve it and repair the relationship, but instead of taking responsibility for it, the one who walks with demons confused and convinced us that we were wrong, we read too much into it, and that they really do care about us, or some other empty words telling us what we wanted to hear.
It’s like when someone betrays you and you point out their behavior, while expressing that you lost trust in them. But instead of coming clean and repenting for their transgression, they flip it around and play the victim, saying they’re heartbroken that you don’t trust them. Now you feel bad that they’re hurt after they betrayed you! They are trying to make you feel guilty for losing trust, the trust which they willfully destroyed through their own actions. They were just hoping to get away with it and do it again. Instead of taking ownership of their behavior and trying to repair the trust, they want you to doubt your sanity and intuition as well as reality. This is an act of evil.
While this sounds very obvious and clearly wrong, it can be much more confusing when you’re in the moment with someone you love or admire who is hurting you, yet you desperately want to believe that’s not what’s happening. Depending how badly you want that fantasy and illusion, you might just take on the false blame in order to make peace and maintain the relationship.
This kind of dynamic could even happen with someone with whom you don’t have a history, a future or an emotional investment.
I had a client who didn’t cancel her session before the 24-hour cancellation window, a policy which she consented to twice during the checkout process. Instead of taking responsibility for her actions, she tried to blame me saying she had no way of contacting me. In fact she had 3 opportunities to contact me, via the first 2 emails with a reply option, which were sent at the moment she booked the session, and the FAQ page on my website with the customer support email. I explained this to her. She denied this reality while playing the victim and simultaneously telling me how she’s a website expert and because of her expertise, she knows that my website system is just awful and that’s the problem here. I knew this wasn’t true because it hasn’t happened before in the 6 years of using this system with hundreds of clients and because other clients have used the reply option, even people in their 70s, who might not be the most adept with technology. This woman was around my age and a self-proclaimed website expert.
It is not an act of compassion to validate someone’s feelings if doing so means to invalidate reality.
I deflected her manipulation tactics and didn’t apologize. Then she told me that she’s a therapist (gotta love how liars and manipulators use qualifiers to try to establish dominance and credibility when lying and manipulating) and any therapist would know that I didn’t validate her feelings so that means something is wrong with me. Again I stood my ground and insisted on reality, so she called me a “a joke”.
This was a very minor attempt at manipulation, yet years ago that kind of interaction would’ve put my mind into a tailspin of self-doubt and fear, maybe even apologizing to someone when I wasn’t the one who did something wrong, just to make peace in the relationship. However, it didn’t work because I’ve been training myself in spiritual warfare thanks to the events taking place in the world, forcing me to look for deeper answers during the recent years.
You might also be noticing there are many tests coming to you lately in your personal and/or professional life, where you are being trained for these times of escalating spiritual warfare in the world.
At Lowe’s a couple weeks ago, I was waiting for a little while for a guy to finish his other tasks and help me shlep some heavy things to the cashier. When he finished, he said, “You have the patience of Job.” I looked this up later to understand the meaning. Job was tested through great struggles, suffering and loss, even false accusations and betrayals by his friends and wife, yet he persevered and didn’t lose his faith in God. Waiting for help at the hardware store is hardly the same level of endurance as Job’s suffering, however I have had to endure many similar hardships, betrayals and loss in my life and spiritual journey. This is perhaps a universal message, speaking to all of us who are being tested and put through the fire of purification during these heightened times of spiritual warfare.
I’ve been noticing, also from stories that people are telling me, that the “lesser narcissists”, as HG Tudor describes them, seem to be currently desperate for supply sources because the changes in the world are making it more difficult for them to groom and catch prey. After a while, even mask policing and hating on anti-vaxxers has its limits of thrills that they can get. The “elite narcissists" (also HG Tudor’s term) are still in full bloom on the global stage with plenty of supply from their targets due to their more complex and expanded structures of fuel sources… for now.
Evil slowly drills its way into the mind and life of its target. When we don’t heed the warning signs, we are likely to keep engaging and exposing ourselves to danger. Things only get worse from that point on. Stay vigilant for these attempts to manipulate and deceive you. If you fall, it’s okay, just get back up and redeem yourself.
You matter. Your choices matter and this is what becomes your legacy. Our individual choices become the collective path forward. No pressure, but the fate of humanity kinda depends on the choices you’re making right now.
We are not at fault for the abuse and manipulation done to us, however we are responsible for turning away from the evil and toward what is good.
This is easier said than done because evil makes it look very tempting and enticing to keep engaging. The demons know exactly what we want to hear. We can fall into those traps, and continue to justify our participation when we are unaware of our own distorted desires that are being manipulated.
In Dante’s Divine Comedy, the souls in the pit of Inferno are those who were frauds, betrayers and traitors. His journey showed him that the epitome of evil are those who spin words of deception and lies, who lead others to their own destruction and demise.
This is what we are seeing around the world where those in positions of power use covert and meticulous language to deceive and lie, in order to drive the people to participate in acts of self-harm, while convincing them that those in power only want to help us and protect us, so something must be wrong with us if we don’t go along with them.
Even though truth is coming out about the lies, deception and fraud, they keep doubling down on their narrative, desperately clinging to their positions of power, and using hypocritical words to condemn any questioning or opposition. They are now introducing the possibility of new measures that they want to impose, leading us further into slavery while promising security and protection.
They have signed their souls over to the demons and right now it looks like they’re winning. But this is an illusion.
A pact with demons is only temporary power.
They may seem unaffected now, and it may appear that there is no limit to their power, but eventually their reckoning will come. First they’ll put on their scorched-earth Grand Finale. We haven’t won yet so we ought not to take that for granted. At the end, when they have nothing left to lose, they will go all out, using every desperate trick in the book. In Spanish, they call this patadas de ahogado (the kicks of a drowning person).
Their grandiosity and entitlement probably has them convinced that the end will never come, that they will continue to maintain increasing power and dominance over the minds of men (and even our DNA!) through their snake-tongued words. While God is merciful and forgives us when we make authentic repentance, I don’t imagine they will take responsibility and repent, which is why their self-destruction is inevitable.
Someone recently told me the story of a friend she had many years ago. She said he was the most charismatic person you’d ever meet. He had fame and a massively successful career. She liked that he always encouraged her and her dreams, telling her that she could do anything she wanted to. Yet she always had the sense that he was operating on some other level. When he walked into a room, people were instantly mesmerized and flocked to him. He was incredibly magnetic, though not particularly attractive at all. It was something else that drew people to him like flies on fresh, shiny horse shit.
One night they were attending a party and she saw him interacting with other women who were fawning around him. She was observing him from across the room when suddenly she noticed the demons swirling around him. He was even glowing in a red light. She was completely sober and shocked at this sight.
In that moment, he had his fingers clawed into the thighs of the women near him, yet he was making eye contact with her from the distance. He was seemingly in conversation with those women, yet she felt as though he was speaking directly into her mind, “I’m letting you see how I really am.” That’s when she realized he is a demon, that’s why he’s so powerful and able to do so much crazy stuff.
Shortly after she moved away, the building where he lived suddenly collapsed one day. No one died, but his entire life was destroyed from one moment to another. He had a huge career and lots of fame, but around the time that his home collapsed, he was also fired. His whole life just collapsed. She said he never recovered from that, never got his career back, even lost all his money. He ended up dying destitute, with horrible diseases eating away at his body.
Inevitable self-destruction comes for those who sell their soul for power.
Those who walk with demons can try to delay the reckoning as long as possible, but even they must sense, through tormenting dreams and fleeting thoughts of paranoia, that one day they will lose it all because none of it was real.
