As most of my readers know, I’ve made working with Divine Intelligence (Daemons) my spiritual life’s work. This has come with a lot of wonderful things, but also at the expense of that blissful ignorance so many people seem to have while going about their daily lives.
People often ask me what I “gain” from my work with the Daemonic. A lot actually. I wouldn’t be the person I am today if it weren’t for my relationship with the Daemonic Divine.
Yes, working with the Daemonic has brought me great rewards, but not after giving me great challenges to overcome. After all – you have to fail, face your fears, and learn to navigate before you can succeed. Such is the nature of the Daemonic. I’ve learned to love the challenge of personal growth and have spent a lifetime learning to navigate the obstacles thrown in front of me over the years. I’ve become a rather adept navigator of my own life. I’ll never stop learning though, or facing obstacles. That is the nature of a physical existence.
When things are going really good, I’ve been known to get cocky (i.e. over-confident), and when that happens the Daemonic has a way of knocking me on my ass. Because of that, periods of over-confidence don’t last long with me. I am always working toward the next goal, overcoming the next obstacle, or meeting that next challenge. Usually with excitement and determination because that’s how I roll.
I sometimes wonder if life would have been easier if I simply had no goals or desire to better myself or make my life more interesting. If I was just a blissful worker ant caught in the system. Of course I’m not one to settle and whenever I start feeling downtrodden or whipped — that determination and fire from within rises up and screams, “Hell no!” I’m a rebel at heart.
I am convinced part of the reason I’ve been so successful with the Daemonic is that natural determination and self-motivation I possess. It’s an intrinsic part of my personality. It also, admittedly, gives the Daemonic something work with. They like that. They quickly lose their patience with lazy magicians who expect the Daemons to do all the work.
The Daemonic truly is divine, but life with the Daemonic is also hard. Those who can’t hack it can be devoured.
