Daemon…

Daemon...

Definition of Daemon:

“Latin daemon “spirit,” from Greek daimon “deity, divine power; lesser god; guiding spirit, tutelary deity” (sometimes including souls of the dead); “one’s genius, lot, or fortune;”

*dai-mon- “divider, provider” (of fortunes or destinies), from root *da- “to divide”.

The word, which is apparently derived from daio “to divide” or “apportion”, originally meant a divine being; it was occasionally applied to the higher gods and goddesses, but was more generally used to denote spiritual beings of a lower order coming between Gods and men.

For the most part these were beneficent beings, and their office was somewhat analogous to that of the angels in Christian theology. Thus the adjective ‘eydaimon’ (happy), properly meant one who was guided and guarded by a good Daemon.

In the Greek of the New Testament and in the language of the early fathers, the word was already restricted to the sinister sense, which was natural enough, now that even the higher Gods of the Greeks had come to be regarded as ‘devils.’

Each of the Daemons is the embodiment of an emotion, an element or an idea. Some people believe these energies are sentient (real deities), while others believe They are simply natural forces without consciousness.

Daemons…represent misunderstood or clandestine parts of the world around us. Many Daemons were merely Gods of pre-Christian pagan religions.

There are Daemons for love and healing just as there are Daemons for anger and destruction.

For every Daemon, there is an equal and opposite Daemon. There are also those Daemons …in between the two. …everything, every situation and everyone has this balance.

[As Daemonolators], we see the world in many subtle shades of gray and consider ourselves the physical manifestations of the Divine.”
