Demons...".he Mara know everything we know, but not Empty Essence, because they do not care for practice.
That is why they hate practitioners."....
they hate the idea that they are not permanent or permanent in their state. The dharma or really any conception of changeability is what they are adverse to.
Practitioners of that sort are thusly inherently
their enemy. It is not that they hate us individually but that they hate anything that approximates or represents their eventual demise....so adverse are they to it they cannot abide even the mention of it.
So they create or shape things to their beliefs. Constructing ideas such as permanent life eternal souls praying to them in some select forms as things that are never changing or may not be changed, all in the end reinforcing through subtle and overt means their eternity.
This is why they demand followers or people to pray to them...it recreates(in their minds) their eternal aspect.
Ah if only it were so simple they would live forever and then perhaps leave us be.
They are of varying sorts and description and now some believe are so integrated into our psyche they are virtually unrecognizable from us human.
But it is not so...all here it seems is expanding apart. Eventually the tether they hold to this thing of form will devolve blasting apart resulting in their demise.
Eternal they may be from perceived internal source, sickness such things but external...they will devolve as we all do being of separateness. They tether to form. When no form presents they devolve.
Spells and such they work through unconscious identifiers. So to not be subject to such things a quick instant remedy is to notice consciously their presence. The presence of spells.ONce found they cease their purpose through unconscious mover and cease effect.
So it is enough to simply see them.
Once seen they are but energy. Such may be used for spiritual purpose. Entering into one consciously and one may seeing them as spells seeing them also as energy sent to one, then utilize that energy. It makes things most magical an colorful. I did this long ago on trails where spell were cast, taking such upon myself as better me than some innocent, destroying, stamping them, laughing at them, and worse to bring their cause upon me...cause it became for great magic and strange things of wonder and delight.
Energy only it is...freely given. Mistaken arrow it can be ridden, and aimed then with compassionate intent.
Negative action of demons can also be then endeavored for this purpose, if like myself ones defilements are so worn and rusty they provide not much in the way of energy anymore, they may be incited to provide a externally perceived source of energy for spiritual purpose. One must of course before endeavoring this care not a fig if one lives or dies or is in a heaven or a hell. But free energy they provide, if so incited.
Your other stuff.....don't know what to say pie. Demons may show things to humans in dreams and visions but what they say or tell may not be for our benefit or be real but to their purpose. So I personally keep my eye on the wheel care not for what they may say. Compassion it wells from our awareness itself cannot be stamped or smothered so thusly if we know reality we know compassion. So if we know not compassion or have it lessened we know not the real...this is how things are, and the only test of the spiritual. We are essentially knowing only. Hence we are compassionate only. All is but a diffusion of that basic reality. A secret I suspect certain demons want you to not know as well...it threatens again their separate identity. What we know cannot be other than us nor can what we know be what we harm. Only us we cannot harm ourselves in such a fashion, completely impossible it is, to harm what is truly known. Only that which we do not know and consider different can we consider for harm. Distinction exists as knowing thing through such means does classify and thusly know but not in this fashion. Only ignorance may form noncompassion...a secret closely held by demon, they know it not perhaps but suspect it so.
Really these things of demons and all other things or things they may envision or believe in...what matter, we must become enlightened that is all.
Human life so rare...maggots in rice are rare as well. WE are here and must utilize it to its furthest extend concerning ourselves with demons other than as spiritual tools for spiritual advancement as described...it is quite pointless. They in the main cannot be helped by us as human. Nor can we as human help human...in the main they will not listen nor can it be said this thing.
If you have the time sing them dharma songs of emptiness versed. They may not like it much but it may help rather than harm that they hear it.
That is all we may do for them the demons. So sad is their plight.
That is the opinion of this unknowing layperson of no spiritual attainment whatsoever. So feel free to disregard. If you find or suspect it true follow it closely.
If not leave it alone it is not for you. This is my world and I can not say certainly it is yours as well. This is how things are here. I don't know if you live here...perhaps perhaps not.
If so this is the rough geography for you. That other stuff.....not here not a bit.
As a aside...as I am now here.
Demons perhaps sensing this.
I am here not there.
Send your curse your spell to me. YOur dream your incantation, foist it upon me.
Human they are so innocent, despicable but innocent and easily harmed.
Me instead, now not later. Better me than them.
We will see if what I say and what I know to be real is real or if what you say and what you know is real.
Come here if you will..... this is the one who says.....you do not exist. None other.... it is me. A echo heard...it is but me.
Me and only me.....this is the source what you suspect spreading this thing....here before you to be harmed and not to harm you.. not a bit....easy I am so weak ....I await you.
Not your minions your followers your group nor your clan... to you I invite this thing..... if curse you desire to spread, spread to me.
I am weak and easily overcome. No harm will come to you, i have not a smidgen of power not a whit.
End me it is ended you may live forever. Act not and I will spread.
Pain ah yes I know...those I love certainly most.
Come demon I exempt none......they know not my song nor ended may it be by such a thing.
I will continue to me one must come, no other. it will not suffice.
Me not other demon....you are invited to favor this harm to me none to other.
