Those who have a mixture of holy and demonic blood are often tested by God. There is no right and wrong in this world, and the universe survives through the forces of yin and yang balancing each other. However, human beings fight each other with weapons in their hands for the sake of their own righteousness and faith. There is no room for logic; there is only culture and tradition that has continued for centuries. If there are opposing forces and actions within us, and we continue to struggle with so-called bi-polar reactions, it is a challenge from God that we must overcome. When opposites can merge and harmonize, the anguish within us will disappear and there will be no more conflict in the world.
