The Enemy Within: “Dweller-on-the-threshold”

Dweller on the Threshold:
“The dark side. The synthetic self. The not-self. The enemy within. There are many names for the part of us that sometimes sabotages our highest dreams and ideals. In each of us there is a collective consciousness of all our misdeeds--momentums of this life and many lifetimes. It is this consciousness that emerges as a pseudo-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 Louis 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 tip of the iceberg, but seldom see below the surface to know what we are really dealing with... remove the mask from the dweller-on-the-threshold...”

From another source:
"...Come into the Arms of Elohim this night and see how your soul has been denied Christhood even by your own dweller-on-the-threshold. The fallen angels know their time is up. Be wary of them! They come to trip you and they look for the least little chink in your armor whereby they may undo you. They would have you. They tremble now in My Presence! Let them tremble in your presence also...”

The Greenhouse Effect, Global Warming and Climate Change

The sun’s rays penetrate the Earth’s atmosphere and, in turn, the planet radiates heat (infrared radiation; IR) back out into space. Fortunately, the so called ‘greenhouse gases’ (largest atmospheric molecules) dampen this process; otherwise, Earth would be a ‘giant snowball’. However, when vast amounts of previously sequestered carbon is released thru the burning of fossil fuels, nature’s balance is skewed. The result is an amplified greenhouse effect which will increasingly change our climate as greenhouse gases accumulate.
