Not too long ago the Devil was evaluating his methods for expanding his hideous kingdom. He was always looking for new ways to improve and modify his devious plans so that earth-humans would become less and less suspicious of his influence.
On this particular day he was noticing that people on earth were hopelessly attracted to acts of kindness and were always demanding a safe place to share their personal views, without being belittled.
This terrestrial need in humans gave the Devil a bright idea. He then ordered his nasty crew to start smiling, always being kind to others and pumping up everyone’s wounded self-images. This would certainly throw them off!
You see, the Devil in his warped cunning, knew something that earth-people had long forgotten—that humans had developed a dual psyche. That is, earth-people had inner and outer lives.
It was within people’s more hidden inner lives that true spiritual change occurred. But as long as one was outwardly nice to people, they would feel warm and fuzzy and loved, thus there would be no need for them to look inwards (introspection) and change any negative character traits that they might be harboring and keeping from view.
So, if one was outwardly kind to people, when they later died and entered the spiritual realm, they could be counted on to gravitate towards their innermost (and unpurified) realities.
