As you rid yourselves of your bad habits, the dark entities that had settled in you are obliged to leave you, because your inner atmosphere becomes unbreathable for them. Once exterior to you, they seek new homes in other people through whom they then try to harm you. But the damage is less great compared to when these entities squatted you, and since you were able to overcome them within you, you are stronger and better able to overcome them when they appear externally.
Even if confronting external enemies is often difficult, they are always less dangerous than your inner enemies who attack your soul. With respect to your external enemies, employ diplomacy and patience, but when it comes to your inner enemies, the dark entities you attracted, you must act with authority. Unfortunately, human beings often do the opposite: they are indulgent with their inner enemies, but are aggressive towards their external enemies. There is therefore no surprise they continue to struggle in such inextricable situations.
