Angels And Demons.

I have so many Angels in my life that I have lost count.

I have outlived the few Demons that I had in my life.

Life is good.

I wonder what prompted young Pravin to come up with this topic for the weekly LBC blog post! You can see what he and the other writers of the LBC have to say in their respective blogs.  Maria, Pravin, Ashok and Shackman.

  1. So glad there are more angels than demons in your life! May that always be so! I think it is up to us to live our lives in such a way that angels always feel at home, and demons know they are not welcome!

  2. Well, both angels and demons are mythical (or maybe metaphorical) creatures. I’ve met a few Demons in my life but no Angels – nobody is that pure or innocent or unfailingly good. I think the Angels must be forbidden to leave Heaven and mix with ordinary earthlings.

    1. There are many angels, Nick. They mostly have a broken wing or crooked halo but they are angels nevertheless

    2. My understanding is slightly different. There can be grey in beings, but by and large they are unimportant in our life’s journey. The demons and angels come for a purpose and it is up to us to recognise and treat them for what they are.

  3. I’m surrounded by angels…both here and beyond. Demons? Not so much. Maybe distraction is my demon that I still keep around. I’m prone to love it but I don’t love what it does in my life.

  4. some of my angels have demon like tendencies – the sort that believe “what I say, you can decide if you want to go down this pathway”… usually the feeling that accompanies their speech, means that I should do this/that, their way. Some of the ideas, are downright silly…

    I also have a lot of p/time angels, who will help if necessary…I’m hoping one such angel will be available earlier next week to fix up my new airing rack, no strength to push the little peg attachments onto the frame…

    I have demons, but I try to keep them at bay

  5. Hi Rummy,

    People would be surprised to know that Angels and demons can be the same. There is a passage in the Book of Joshua that suggests this same notion: Joshua asks the messenger whether he comes for the Nation of Israel or for their enemies, the messenger answers “No, but this time I come as the Captain of the Hosts of the Lord”.

    What people usually consider demons are, in truth, trapped and angry souls that refuse going to the light. But this is a very complex matter and alas I lack the time to discuss it now.

    Thank you for this post of yours, it made my mind produce a lot of thoughts.


    1. In the Indian tradition too, they are treated as different rather than as one being good and the other bad. It is also used as metaphoric explanations of inner conflicts of all humans.
