According to some traditions, the devil has no power to act - only to speak, to whisper lies and try to delude us. The Bible calls the devil "a liar." The number one way this devil-type-thinking tries to trick us is to blind us from all the good that is in our lives, the depth of others' love and care for us, the meaningfulness of our relationships and actions, and the beauty of our being. Often, we believe the lies - and then try to fix and act from those false assumptions. Today, don't believe the lies.
