It's time to search your heart and determine if your actions and goals are hurting yourself and others.  If your life is in turmoil and you feel that you are completely submerged in material matters, your soul will appeal to your mind, longing for inner peace.  Ask God for help to break your self-made chains so that you may be free of earthly concerns and physical desires.  Ask for guidance on how you may use your energies in the best interest of self and others.  The Devil represents the first stage of spiritual enfoldment; the stage of conscious bondage.  He personifies the false conception that man is bound by material conditions.
