“There are more things in heaven and earth, Horatio, Than are dreamt of in your philosophy.” ~William Shakespeare, “Hamlet”
Twenty four hours ago I was completely unaware of the idea I am presenting here today. The idea of demons preying on people who have altered their state of mind and/or who are susceptible to these negative influences because of using meth.
Before going further, and as simply as possible, I want to define three words as I understand them from the sources I have read.
Demon – A negative or malevolent, non-physical, entity or being
Possession – When a demon(s) inhabit and take over the physical body
Oppression – When a demon(s) influences an individual without inhabiting a body
My Christian friends believe whole-heartedly in demons, but also throw around names like Lucifer and Satan and quote from the Bible which leaves me wondering if they really believe everything they read, and have they read more than the one book?
I don’t believe any God can fault a person who wants to find their own way whether it be Christianity, Spirituality or other, as long as it resonates with them. If anything, I think it would be preferred, I don’t think we came here to be mindless automatons and be whatever they feel pressured to be.
Hopefully, they gave Christianity serious thought before getting the membership card and are not Christians because they were told they were by their parents or social group.
I consider myself spiritual which can mean almost anything these days. To me, Spirituality means believing in more than I can see and knowing there is a higher order and/or purpose to life – but without a handbook to lead me around and a preference to find my own way.
My Belief on Demons
I do believe there are beings that may not be physical as we know it, or may not be visible to us because humans only see a very small portion of the electromagnetic spectrum shown in the chart below.
Whether or not they have influenced people using meth, that is a good question and one which I want to talk about more in an upcoming post. I needed to get all the above out first to explain my position on Demons, Religion, Spirituality, and the fact that mankind knows very, very little about the Universe he lives in.
