Having rid the demon Indifference from hiding I must renew the child I found. The child whose company this demon kept. I found my child to be as happy and full of joy as I expected him to be. He is with me now but there remains a fragility to be understood and rectified. Very fun to renew this experience from my youth and embrace this happy boy for whom I had spent years searching. He would like me to do things a little differently, than has been my course, and I will follow his lead. After all he does know of joy and happiness. In finding him he advised me of my life and the joy and happiness I could find in it. Just for the bother of looking. I wrote of this adventure in my previous two posts, My Fourth Grade Demon and Sarakiel the Demon Slayer
Some wonder why I bother to puzzle all of this, spending so much time and effort. Isn’t there a simpler way? Of course there is and I expect most of us find themselves that way. It has not been the case for me. I have known for most of my life that I am this way. I discovered it when I was seventeen. It really pissed me off. You see I am a mystic, not because I decided, oh that would be fun. It is because I discovered it is how I am. Kind of like discovering your gay. There just is not anything I can do about it. Things are much better when I am happy about it and live as if there is some value in it.
