Corruption is a form of corrosion. A corrupted soul creates an infected spirit/energy within, similar to how a disease, a virus, resides or contaminates throughout one’s physiology — the metaphysic system within may also be diseased — more so when traumatised, whilst its outer symptoms (behaviour) can be seen or felt, affecting those around its source, those around or near to such a person.
When the “inner sheath” has been torn, ripped, traumatised — it’s like when the vacuum in a pressurised cabin has been breached, and an opening within the inner psyche — spiritual immune system — is disabled, damaged.
The corruption and corrosive disease I speak of is like the wind — we see its effects and the damage chaotic winds can produce, but we never see the wind — evil is like the wind of darkness — a viral bacterial infection to the spirit/soul, infecting and/or influencing the integrity of the individual, though never seen, it’s effects can be seen, understood.
The Aboriginal ancestry that I am descended from, and grew with for a time, have their word for such evil… Mamu.
There are people who are addicted to, or at least committed to their servitude of this “darkness” within their Self, and are just as devoted to its force and power as there are others who are “warriors” of its opposite, striving for the submission of “evil”.
The “fight” or “battle” between these opposite forces/beings can often be experienced or understood as a “spiritual warfare”, sometimes enacted externally, and more often experienced internally, within one Self. [The Way towards integration]
“Beware, Be aware, Be wary of Mamu; Be aware, Be wary of evil; Be in charge of your power/s and your choices. Know which it is that your words, deeds, and thoughts are feeding.”
