Johnny thought his mind was his own. But there came a time in his life where he realized anyone can have control of it if he lets them. This world was full of disturbing, unfathomable, and powerful beings. They wore the same skin as humans but it was their red eyes that gave away their true identity. Hell-Dwellers. Henchmen of darkness that remained even after the Human Resistance successfully overthrew the Dark King and reclaimed Earth. Friends, family, lovers, anyone could be a Hell-Dweller. The only way to know for sure would be to open yourself up a little. Let someone step into your mind. Even then all we really want is to be loved. Only demons are incapable of love.
Johnny had been engaged to a girl named Lexi. Little did he know her tough exterior and strong personality that once captivated him became the most fearful part of her persona. She told him she loved him. They went out for a year before Johnny popped the question. She said yes through smiling teeth for Lexi knew her charms had worked on him the way she originally intended. The young man looked back to his past relationship with Lexi but had to keep in mind that the Tech Age was governed by only three laws.
Law of attraction is the knowledge that if you are positive, then positivity will always come your way and if you are negative, then only negativity can exist in your mind. Law of allowance lets oneself think new thoughts and experience new experiences without letting fear or anxiety render. Law of acceptance is to accept that things are the way they are and one seldom has control over anything or anyone. These three laws resided in every living creature. Hell-Dwellers had their own warped version of the Trinity.
Johnny threw caution to the wind when he allowed Lexi into his heart. But he never saw her as a mistake. Innocence shrouded him prior to their short-lived civil union. Since he let himself experience the ups and downs, the puppy love and the heartbreak, his innocence was lost. But that didn’t have to be a bad thing. Spiritual maturity enveloped him as he constructed his empathic shields that protected him from further harm. Centering was a daily chore that he enjoyed because it expelled any negative thoughts away from Johnny’s reality. Grounding reminded him that he was not alone, that a divine being had interwoven his life with the lives all around him. Sometimes all these precautionary measures didn’t seem like enough. So he praised to the New Olympians for a spiritual guide to show him the way to alleviate a broken heart.
They answered his prayer as soon as they knew Johnny would be ready to hear it. “You are doing the best you can. You are a beautiful soul and your strength will carry you away from all your fears and anxiety. Lexi was a descendant of the Demon King. Oblivious to the fact that love, unconditional, can defeat all evil. The Human Resistance knew that and it was their fellowship and their love their allies that demolished the reign of demons. Instill that knowledge and make friends of your own. Find the courage to reach out to others for there are others like you who are lost, alone, and afraid to be happy.” It takes a smile, a greeting, any benign gesture, no matter small, to kill the darkness within another. Johnny felt sorry for Lexi. Her voyage to reinitiate the Demon King’s lost dynasty will forever be void of love and friendship.
The first law reassured Johnny that he must be positive and the right woman will heal his heart someday. The second law helped him make new friends and allies. The last law allowed him to be contempt with Lexi’s near-killing blow and move forward with new life lessons learned. He had faith that she would see the error of her ways, but he wasn’t holding his breath for a second.
Psyche, the New Goddess of the Triskelion, looked down from Mt. Olympus endearingly at Johnny. Eros, the New God of Truth and Belief, wrapped his arm around his lover. “Johnny is definitely our son. He has the same personal growth rate that you do, and my faith that love will always defeat evil.”
