Might a daimōn take up residence in the libido? I’m tired of this unquiet mind.The Greek philosopher Socrates, for example, spoke of his daimōn as a spirit that inspired him to seek and speak the truth. Out of my heart years ago. Out of my mind today. Long enough. Tired of being demented by whatever spirit is messing with my mind. Tired of being double minded.
The power of life and death is in the spoken word. Sound and light interacting with psyche alchemizing libido. Tongues of fire from heaven. Deaths of the sons of Aaron for offering strange fire. Apostles know not of what spirit they are when they propose to call down fire from heaven.
