A creative story...
Traveling in wilderness on trail. Appearences on trail of certain thing of a sort. STicks rocks put in certain patterns. When walked upon one certainly incurs injury of varying sort. When disturbed, a certain sleepiness occurs as consequence. Seemingly then as things put there for purpose.
Perhaps as demons do eat human fear sadness pain...to feed, by ones courting such beings.
So that known coninuing on....Upon trail one encounters a male. Older with large brown dog. Dog advances towards one with teeth barred barking appearing ready at a moment to attack. As one is as one is, one has bear mace in a pocket, but no fear nor anger . One then does take out bear mace and as one would target perhaps a gun one is prepared to shoot such dog, but does not of course, compassionately intended. If dog it will know a weapon one has.
So the dog is then called back by owner of dog.
ONe remarks to one other than...yes, dog is called back when mace is produced. Where is one going...... then one by such person is asked...there, one points, foward, and walks onward. Seeing cows later singing mantra to cows, and continues walking.
Then in camp some hours later, one does, when getting into bed of sorts, have mace spontaneiously discharge, and blinds one, and contaminates clothing and bag and such things. One has water filtered and ready and then does not go blind in wilderness miles from any other person, but spends cold night in bag as consequence. One does not die as consequence.
So one does and later hikes out.
So one being incrediblty stupid acts as one would to a person with physical remedy to thing other. With mace and suffers as consequence result which may have well killed one if one had such propensity.
One does not and comes prepared, but lesson leaned...
Demon beings treated never with physical thing. The correct response......to laugh forecibly and loud at presentation of dog.
Only is demon follower trying to incite fear so demon one worships may eat such fear.
Being not wanting to be eaten as life has purpose for spiritual but to reply with the physical is most stupid.
No thought of fear of such was ever elicited, though perhaps perceived by demon folllower.So aim by such was most off mark.
Demon would tolerate not such and thusly follower would fall from favor eating not demon.
So good could result but not did result. Follower could have left the following.
Demon follower..demons court not such peoples they being considered most weak and ineffectual.....tools they only be. And if continuance as such does allow...as very lowely follower they be allowed by demon to be and thusly quite unhappy.
So such mark is missed by demon follower and follower not of demon.
Compassion pure compassion...to hug the dog as it rips out ones entrails..that be stupid compassion. Though I would not deny circumstance may present which would require that...this seems not.
Laughter infers the real....nothing to be gained here.... only wanted is food of fear.
So none provided one moves on.
So correct response ia surmised in this thing.
Of creative nature and story.
Padmesambhava.... those of means to effect change in demons themselves...beyond comprehension is the potential of that accomplishment, of those that may do such things as that. Simply amazing
For those so inclined to contemplate these things of proper response in this creative thing of story.
For your listening pleasure.....
