Devil's Food

Dear Peregrin,

A few nights ago I had an extremely vivid dream about Satan. I was asleep in my bed when I suddenly felt wide awake. I opened my eyes to see a tall figure beside my bed. At this moment, I don't know how, but I knew it was the devil. He had the appearence of a human male and was holding this tray-thing (like what employees at American sporting events usually have hanging around their necks when selling hotdogs or popcorn), and it was full of chocolate bars (I dont have an eating disorder or wieght problem). He then held out his hand towards me. I blinked and he was gone and I was still wide awake.

A Fire Inside





Good morning, Fire.

The devil could represent temptation, especially with his tray of chocolate. How often are we warned never to take candy from a stranger? Yet here he is, trying to tempt you with what seems like a harmless treat, holding out his hand like a friend. As a vendor, he is selling the chocolate rather than giving it away.

I would look for a waking-life parallel: Someone you may not know well, trying to sell something that seems harmless - or he says that it is. It seems tempting, but you shouldn't give in. Your subconscious has alarm bells going off over this situation - back off.


Pleasant dreams,
Peregrin
