Archangel Michael and the Dragon

Do you want to be alive, truly alive? Give your higher nature the means to triumph over your lower nature. From the perspective of Initiatic Science, those thoughts, feelings and actions which are not inspired by our higher nature, which do not receive the imprint of the soul and the spirit, lead to death. And yet, you shouldn’t try to destroy your lower self. Firstly, because you will not succeed – you yourself will be destroyed, for not only is it very powerful, it is a part of you. So you must only attempt to master it, to tame it, so that you can benefit from its vitality and its wealth.
The same idea is expressed in Revelations by the image of the dragon laid low by Archangel Michael. The Archangel does not kill it; he only overpowers it. In the same way, disciples must overpower the dragon of their lower self. Understanding the symbol of the dragon already weakens it. Meditate on this image, and you will go from death to life, from darkness to light, from limitations to infinity, from slavery to freedom, from chaos to harmony.

Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov,
Sexual Force and the winged Dragon, Izvor 205

    So you must only attempt to master it, to tame it, so that you can benefit from its vitality and its wealth…. What is the vitality and wealth associated with the lower self? Please care to explain anyone?

      Hi David, this post provides an answer. ‘The personality (or Lower Self) is the reservoir of our potential, it is a necessary part of us… the point is, we must be more intelligent than it is, we must make it submit and obey instead of being subservient to it….’ https://with-omraam.com/blog/mans-two-natures-put-the-personality-to-work-part-45/ . You can read more in the book it comes from Izvor Book 213, Man’s Two Natures, Human and Divine
