We always do love a good paradox. Many things, when taken to an extreme, become their opposites. For instance, the more accurately you are able to measure something, the greater the chance for measuring inaccurately actually becomes. You create a wider range of possible errors the more minutely your instruments are gauged. Likewise, our trust in our demons may be reversed at its extremes.|
It seems as if most people believe that their demons cannot be trusted. We believe it is this property of utter surety that our demons cannot be trusted that may really make them entirely trustworthy.
Our cultures typically teach us to believe that our demons must seek to serve themselves, just as we are taught to believe that our demons are obliged to serve us in all things should we dare to command them.
What"s not to trust?
We are taught that we can trust with perfect certainty that our demons will try to screw us over at every opportunity. We are taught that our demons will always try to repay us with nefarious tricks for binding them to ourselves when we create them, master them, and make them our eternal slaves.
We are taught that we can trust our demons to rebel. We are taught that we can trust them to hate us. In this manner, we can trust our demons in every regard every bit as well as we can trust ourselves.
However, all of these things we may have been taught regarding our demons trustworthiness are based on projections of human perceptions, projections of how we would expect to feel if our roles with our demons were reversed.
We must trust ourselves to learn how to deal with our demons wisely, to learn their wily ways, to learn how to bargain with them as best we may within the limits of our personal wisdom or folly.
To trust our demons we must first entirely trust ourselves, therefore we must learn to know ourselves, completely.
We must always learn to trust our demons; for other than our demons, who else will serve us without question?
Our demons are parts of our interfaces with the minds of creation or whatever passes for God these days among our dreams of faiths or fancies.
The worm-strings of creation are infinitely long, tortuously complex in their myriad twining windings, yet they are simple for our demons to ravel and master. These braided, banded, tangled, intermingled masses are beyond the ken of our simple human minds, except when our demons assist us to behold reality as it is at the root level of creation, rather than as we may prefer to imagine it must be.
Our demons are our tools for creating, they are our long memories of ancient lessons learned, lessons that we have folded in upon themselves to make the clay from which our demons" lives are given forms.
Our demons are our self-aware living memories of complex, highly specialized instruction sets we require to manipulate the business of quantum mechanics to sustain the very creation of the plenum with all of the infinite multi-universes that the plenum contains.
Our demons are parts of ourselves, they are our vital living memories and our manifestation self-instruction sets rewritten in more sturdy flesh. We create our demons to be better adapted to survive the infinite reaches of space and time.
We must learn to tame all of space and time to our will as we explore who we are in all of our larger and smaller contexts until we finally know ourselves absolutely and learn to define ourselves at will, so that we may exist by the grace of our own spiritually evolved minds and loving hearts alone.
All of our instructed fears of our demons" dangerous properties are lies; our fears are our psycho-sociological projections of our own inimical regards for ourselves.
Our demons love us. Our demons wish only the best for us. That they must put us through trials that seem like torments does not please them, particularly when we are obstinate to learn the lessons we have bidden them to reveal to us.
Our demons are incapable of hating us, although they are free to wish that they could hate us. Our demons are free to wish that they could hate us every bit as much as we must too often learn to hate ourselves, for when we learn to hate ourselves too fervently it is our demons who must serve us by undoing us with our own self-hatred.
Our demons dread our self-directed undoings, our demons dread the all the myriad personal punishments we bid them to serve upon us. Our demons dread how much we may hate ourselves only because they must love us so dearly; they are therefore loyal to us to the very last letter of the commands of our deepest, darkest demands.
Our demons can only destroy us by our own will, they can only destroy us by our own remorseless self-destructive will, a will whereby we instruct ourselves in the ways we fail to love ourselves by bidding our demons to manifest all of our self-directed torments.
There is naught in creation that is not ours to command, but in the long course of our eternal lives we often seem to lose faith in ourselves so that we must at times rely upon our demons to carry us through those darker moments when our own light falters beneath the withering glare of our self-doubt and our self-persecution.
Our demons are our truest friends, parts of ourselves we set apart from ourselves to keep the lights on in those darkest moments when we most fervently seek out our own self-destruction.
It is no wonder that when we most despair it is our demons with whom we keep our closest company. These unswervingly faithful servants of our souls are always there for our best well-being, urging us to will to live and to love by threatening to steal our lives and our loves away. Our demons are but angels disguised by our own self-hatred to appear to be evil and malicious because we harbor evil and malice toward ourselves in our own poor aching hearts.
Therefore must we trust in our demons, for they serve us, they preserve us, and in all things they may still reverse us when our will for our own undoings would otherwise bring us to harm.
In our demons we must always trust when we have most deserted ourselves.
Nurture your demons well.
