There are many names for the part of us that sometimes sabotages our highest dreams and ideals.
In each of there is a collective consciousness of all our misdeeds--momentums of this life and many lifetimes. It is this consciousness that emerges as a psuedo-identity and causes us to do those things we so often regret. it has also been called the dweller on the threshold, because it hides at the threshold of self-awareness, where the conscious and subconscious minds meet.
The encounter with this enemy within has been vividly portrayed in works of literature such as mary Shelley's Frankenstein and Robert Lewis Stevenson's Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde--and also in modern movie masterpieces such as Star Wars.
But for most of us, the encounter with the dweller-on-the-threshold is less cataclysmic, for the enemy within is subtle and hopes we will not notice as it lurks in the shadows--like some phantom of the opera, occasionally emerging to cause havoc in our lives. from time to time, we contact the type ofhte iceberg, but seldom see below the surfacte to know what we are dealing with.
In The Enemy Within, Mark L. Prophet and Elizabeth Clare Prophet remove the mask from the dweller-on-the-threshold. they bring a clear understanding and spiritual tools to help us deal with that enemy within. And they reveal the inner light as our true nature, what we can fully become when we have overcome the not-self.
