We're surrounded by Magick and Demons; Sex and Violence; Love and Hate.
All these things infiltrate the world, and our own personal perception of the universe.
Magick is the energy we put into the universe. It's in the things we think, and vibrate within the words we speak. Within magick, there's always a dark element, as there is within human nature. To call magic "black" or "white" (or "green"), sort of seems to defeat the purpose. It's an elementary understanding of the concept. Like "Kindermagic". The parallels of human nature go beyond nurture. It IS nature. Being a "good person" is a practice.
A "soul reader" (who informed me that our souls are capable of detaching from us if we ignore them for too long), stopped me one day, and said, "Your soul is trying to tell you something, and you're not listening. You're going against every instinct your gut is telling you right now".
Eyes truly are the window to the soul. You can see infiltration. You can see when people have been brainwashed (or their souls have temporarily departed).
As I was watching Going Clear: Scientology and the Prison of Belief, I noticed that I had a really difficult time looking into the eyes of the interviewees. To the point where I started having to look away, because I felt as though I would "catch" whatever it made me feel. The only way I can describe it is a hallow emptiness. A glassy void. Like they were missing their soul. I've seen this in other forms too. People's eyes and demeanor completely change, and it's suddenly in the words they speak.
If you happen to be a fan of Twin Peaks, this information might resonate with you in a slightly "less eccentric" level. Demons can manifest within people, and we can only see them at certain times. Some people of course can be more susceptible to manifestation. (Or brainwashing). "They wanted Laura, but she fought them. She wouldn't let them in so they killed her." BOB, the "demon", can be interpreted as either a symbolic or actual demon, depending on the spectrum of ones beliefs.
In my opinion, Agent Cooper is the prototype of the good in humanity. The awesome that humans are made of, and the way we're supposed to be existing in this life. Aware of our instincts and appreciative of all the little things.
It's easy to point the finger when you don't know what's going on behind the red curtain. If you never see the subservience or violence, it's easy to presume that the lives in Twin Peaks are simple, modest and humble. If you don't see what goes on behind closed doors, it's easy to assume other peoples lives are much like your own, and that there's "good people" and "bad people". It might look like a dream, but maybe inside, it's a nightmare. Much like Lynch's films, It's all about perception and interpretation. The black and white, and the red.
"Maybe that's all that BOB is, the evil that men do." -Twin Peaks
