Spiritual Parasites



The evil inclination can only exist by living off the life-blood of a person's good holy qualities and special abilities. He does this by surrounding a persons's holiness and aliveness like a vampire and sucking out it's energy and power. This leaves the person feeling very flat, lifeless and prone to wander away from Hashem. The "yetzer" comes in the form of anger, lust, sadness, jealousy, hopelessness doubts and inner conflicts - all of these suck up a person's goodness and holiness. In order to become fully human and whole again, we need to rescue the precious parts of ourselves that are being strangled to death and release them. Once we have located our special qualities we must remove the parasitic husks that surround them. Then we'll become ourselves again, integrate the fragmented parts of ourselves and grow.

With every blessing,
