Rock Devil

Devils and demons are found in virtually every culture's mythology. Joseph Campbell asked us to remember that all religions serve as a mirror of our own psyches - that the angels and devils are all simply symbols for the good and bad parts of ourselves. Robert Bly insisted that there is great power to be found in the shadow side of ourselves if we can learn to focus the power there in a positive manner. Perhaps our devils have a role to play if we'll let them.
