If we can awaken to and understand states as they appear,
then we can transcend this mundane world. If we do not
awaken and are instead confused by states as they occur, then
we may fall so far that we end up in the hells. Cultivators of
the spiritual path should not fear the presence of demons. We
need only fear that our own concentration power will be
insufficient to withstand them. We should realize that demons
can help us along. They test us to see whether or not our
spiritual skill is genuine and to see whether or not our
samadhi power can endure them. If we have skill and
samadhi, then no matter what demon comes, it will not be
able to shake us.
