Whether, that is, we will digest what is necessary to life or whether we will allow it to sit like a lump in the belly where it manifests as vomit or bloat or blocked kidneys.  It ends with an "out­of­body" experience — the witch flying on the wind. SO WHY ARE YOU SCARED TO TRY BECAUSE I WILL FAIL NO THAT S NOT IT WHERE ARE THE FORCES YOU HAVE ALLIED WITH WHERE ARE THEY DO THEY HELP YOU YES THEY GIVE ME SLEEP WHY DONT YOU WANT TO BE AWAKE BECAUSE IT HURTS TO BE AWAKE TELL ME HOW MUCH IT HURTS OK ARE YOU READY?

If they reject the world as it is, they unconsciously create their own fiction and attempt to project their own "sacred" world onto the world outside. The resultant collision is increasingly destructive.  Without the Church to mark out those strong boundaries between impersonal and personal, sacred and profane, God and Devil, we have to be extremely conscious in order to protect ourselves from the demonic within and without.  The muffin is not sacred and the power it is releasing is not holy power even when flavored with blueberries.

And what I must have suffered trying to get the milk.  The unseen guest is always there, that's for sure, telling me that everything I am is poison and the only way I can survive is to drink what I'm given, even if I know it is poison to me.  I live in my glass coffin — ugly as it is — and watch life pass me by.  So long as she is obedient to a mother — actual or internal — who unconsciously wishes to annihilate her, she is in a state of possession by the witch; she will have to differentiate herself out from that witch in order to live her own life.
