    I'm feeling energized by the Tao Te Ching again. I think it's a versatile, inclusive philosophy.

    11 Put on the full armor of God, so that you can take your stand against the devil’s schemes. 12 For our struggle is not against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the powers of this dark world and against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly realms.

    - Ephesians 6:11-12

    It's a metaphor for spiritual preparedness, but it really happened.

    Is it not thrones and dominions and the prince of the air or something like that? I remember that quote but I remember it differently, its a strange one

    That's the thing about the Bible, there is such an enticingly large variety of cherries to pick.
