Tonight, we take a look at the story of Mephistopheles. Although Mephistopheles appears to some to be a devil, an employee of Satan if you will, others chime in and have said that he does not actively seek out those that he can corrupt but instead comes to serve and ultimately collect the souls of those who are already damned. He senses those that are already been corrupted, or those that are in danger of being damned. Mephistopheles himself is unable to escape from his own private hell by serving the Devil. Mephistopheles in some light achieves a form of tragic grandeur as a fallen angel with satanic pride and deep, dark despair. Maybe we can one day be a good Mephistopheles, following the Dao and guiding others toward the path and the light in our own imperfect way.
