Wraith Demon

Inspired by the Buddhist belief that three main “poisons” affect our daily thoughts and actions if we don’t guard against the poison, one of which is Wraith. More often than not, we don’t voice our displeasure for many reasons. We keep the feelings in, and bury them. Like an experiment gone wrong, those feelings ferment and concentrate into corrosive poison drops. Soon, these ghastly ooze eats its way out to the surface, defiling what was once pure and graceful. Our thoughts might turn bitter and black, words turn sour and sharp, and action turn rough and thoughtless. Once Wraith wiggles loose, the untrained are often reduced to powerless witness to the carnage it brings on. Or worse, blinded by feelings, we become one with Wraith as it slithers aimlessly for as long as we feed it. Wraith is immortal and powerful, but not immune to change. With good training, anyone can cleanse and pacify this demon, and finally unshackle it to transform Wraith into its counterpart – Compassion.
