In order for the skilled wordmonger to control your mind, he must first seduce you away from the counter-influence of your own understanding. There are many tricks he can use to lead you into a state of doubt and confusion, the main one being to induce you to reach for a promise of glory and power equal to the godhead, a state in which you can do no wrong.
In order to hang onto the belief in your â€œgodliness,â€ you must be made to doubt the reality that says it isnâ€™t so. That reality, once doubted, becomes almost impossible for you to believe again. You see it as the lie, in place of the lie that made you doubt it. You can no longer believe or accept it; you even see it as a threat. You become a victim soul, whose only belief system is the relationship between you and the words of your seducer.
Through your relationship with deceit, you undergo emotional, mental, physical, animal changes. Through this connection, also, come the suggestions that lead your changeling being to calamity. If you are lucky (blessed), you may wake up one day and see that you have been betrayed. You see all those wonderful dreams, goals, and nice people for what they are.
It doesnâ€™t matter whether your ambition is â€œsocially acceptableâ€ or downright illegal and immoral; the lie blinds you equally well either way. The end result in either case is betrayal, disappointment, disillusionment, guilt, rage, depression, unhappiness, and frustration. But if deceit can be used to make us set aside reality and encourage our pursuit of the forbidden, it can be used again to â€œsaveâ€ us from guilt.
