Why do demons like to make people suffer?

Signpost 58 - The demons of today - the Tuduus

Today's demons - the Tuduus

Jesus and his disciples cast out demons. It says so in the Bible, and it must have been a frequent concern that was brought to him and his disciples. Today we go to a psychotherapist, some to a psychiatrist or we consult a coach when something troubles us in our soul. In seminars we get recipes for fighting demons, good and bad.

We are most troubled in our work life as well as in our private lives the spirits of the group "Tuduus". They are omnipresent, although well researched they still have great power. Not only do they torment us, they can make us sick and even kill us. However, we can learn to transform them into positive energies "Hafdan" to transform, or not to let them turn into a harmful demon in the first place. It's not that difficult if you know how to do it.

We usually document the Tuduus on a list on paper or on a PC. There they are called "tasks" or "to do's" (spoken: Tuduus). With it we create, i.e. we manifest it. We ourselves are their creators and we ourselves give them power over us, daily, uninterrupted. And then they torture us: "That still has to be done." "You couldn't do that again."

It's very helpful a small balance do:

When, how, where do my Tuduus appear?

How do I turn a harmless tuduu into a tormentor?

Since many people have no real awareness of this plague and its emergence, or suppress their experience of suffering, they do nothing, not even when they are feeling bad. Thanks to Corona! My heart opens up when people tell me that they had time for themselves and discovered life in the process. The virus forces us to pause and ask: e.g. about the meaning of everything or about what is really important in our life.

The solution is not to delete or destroy all Tuduus, because that is not possible, but to delete them to transform into positive forces. In the Tibetan area there are rituals for this, “feeding demons”. When we fight them, we keep charging them with negative energy. So we greet you, welcome you. And, most importantly, they mean well with us. They are not malicious in their own right.

The first important step is that we have them to thank for everything they did for us. What have we achieved through our conscientiousness and diligence? A big, honest “thank you” without any “buts” is the indispensable first step. These many Tuduusthat we've already done turned out to be like this Hafdan (written: have done). We did them and they were the building blocks of our success. A big "thank you" appreciates this and generates good, healing energy.

Then where does the torment come from? St. Benedict declared 1,500 years ago: The right measure is the mother of all virtues. We're exaggerating, we're going beyond the right measure. On the one hand, we submit to the expectations of others by not setting ourselves apart, and then we often have excessive demands on ourselves. Then we suffer because we have invited far too many Tuduus that we cannot cope with. And what has not been done yet easily becomes a demon.


The tasks of the Tuduus are completely problem-free as long as we work through them and manage the planned workload. They only become tormentors when we develop feelings of guilt or stressful thoughts arise, “I can't do that”. Here are a few tips.

Practical tip

  1. Always start with the nasty tuduus. Mark these (max. 3) Tuduus that are stressful for you, e.g. a difficult conversation, with the priority "U" for uncomfortable, possibly also written in red or bold. This is done first without thinking - just do it.

  2. Define another 1-3 Tuduus for each day, depending on the time required, which are the absolute compulsory program, mark them with “HP” for the highest priority. When the "U" and the "HP" are done, the day is already a complete success.
    The rest are given the order 1, 2,… in order of importance.

  3. Also pack a Tuduu under “hP” or “U”, which is not urgent, but is important in the long term. Then it can slowly mature and saves the time pressure when it comes to the appointment.

  4. Whenever an important tuduu or a group, e.g. the "U", has been completed, pause. Sit back and tell the Tuduu you're one now Hafdan. That is the angel of success, a source of joy and pride. - Then take a break, listen inside, invite the good angels of life. Agitation drives them away.

  5. In the evening you look at the many and / or important hafdans. Reflect on what you've accomplished. Even if your own planning was disrupted by unforeseen events, that too is Häfdan. Joy and gratitude for the success is the feeling that you take with you into the evening.

That's what occurred to me

The essential can only reveal itself when we stop being distracted by the insignificant.
