This predator not only feeds off of human awareness; it also manipulates humans. Don Juan said that there are a lot of outside forces controlling people in every moment and that this control is something that exists outside of the domain of language because these experiences lie so far beyond syntax. ~ Don Juan
It’s been a very long time since I’ve had to deal with the predator. In fact, I thought the predatory energies were a thing of the past, could no longer touch me, that I had elevated myself to a state of existence that I had become impeccable and immune to the poison of it. It seemed that no matter what, I was able to dance past the predator in freedom and when people asked me to write more about it, I refused, deluding myself into believing that it no longer exists in my “separate reality”.
Where do they come from, these horrible bottom feeders, who have not one iota of self-worth or respect for others? It’s infuriating to me that they exist at all but even worse that they appear in my small and simple humble reality. Really? I mean what of all the work I’ve done my entire life to take the higher ground and rise above the petty bullshit?
The worst of these are not the low lives that steal and thieve. They are the self-important people who have a modicum of intelligence; the manipulators, deceivers and tragic beings with the constant need to attempt to destroy another and consume them in their pathetic plight to make themselves appear to be bigger or better than they are. They have no personal power so they suck the life force out of anyone in their attempts to survive and to assume a sense of self, rallying and pitting anyone they can against others in order to get their energy quota for the day. They are dangerous because they stop at nothing so that they may elevate themselves to a position of false authority and control.
As warriors, we try to rise above these petty tyrants who are imprisoned by the predator. We scratch our heads wondering why we become adversaries when all we want to do is go through our lives as creative beings with a full immersion of doing that which we love to do in this world. We might get momentarily caught up in the drama as they attempt to consciously or unconsciously hook our attention into their world of madness and insecurity but the bottom line for the warrior is to always take the high ground, to rise above the nonsense and unplug.
We may find that the ego wants so badly to “take control”, to put this type of idiot of the monkey mind in their place, to alert others as to the enormity and danger of the game. But we know we cannot; most unconscious beings won’t understand because they are they incapable of seeing the lines of energy that attempt to disrupt because it is often candy-coated in intelligence, degrees, and inauthentic mumbo-jumbo as they lie their way through each situation and even operate from a place of pity to receive the food of compassion and support from others. Without an ounce of humility or even humanity, they successfully make most believe in them as a “model humans”.
Take the high road and become the observer from a place of silence. To discuss it with others will serve as a loss of energy because it’s difficult to make another see what they are unable to perceive. While you may lose some energy to these situations, through the thought processes spinning around in your mind while trying to reason out what makes a person act so pitifully and simultaneously mean, try instead to breath the positive life-force energy of the universe into the center of your being with the knowing that these types of people are being held prisoner within the dark world of the predator. As warriors, that’s not a place where we are interested in dancing.
So, the dance continues around the predator, above the predator and in spite of the predator. When you encounter these beings, even if you thought, as I had, that this energetic disturbance was a thing of the past, they can materialize at any moment. I remain diligent.
