DEVIC AND ASURIC FORMS OF MYSTICISM
Asuric Mysticism and Asuric Religions

The Asuras are represent those forces of nature which fight against the Divine will toward the evolution of consciousness in the universe and try to preserve prior material forms and conditions. They create division, conflict and destruction and strive to prevent human beings from advancing to a higher awareness. The Devas work to further the Divine will that tries to break through developed forms and limitations, promoting higher aspirations.

The Devas and Asuras, the Gods and the Antigods and their energies, are ever at war for the souls of men and cultures. Generally more materialistic cultures with their efforts to control the external world naturally ally themselves with the Asuras, who represent an external view of reality. More spiritual cultures, with their internal vision and culture of contemplation, ally themselves with the Devas.

Materialistic cults like communism, therefore, can easily develop destructive Asuric traits, as the history of communism with its state control, terrorism and genocide reveals. Materialistic capitalism is another belief system that can be used by Asuric forces, with the hypnosis of mass advertising and consumerism that trap people in the external world of desire. Yet, as these two systems indicate, the Asuras do have their idealism, communism with its utopian ideals or capitalism with its ideal of enjoyment for all.
