I’ve been reading The Complete Book of Demonolatry by S. Connolly and I read something that put my brain into overdrive. It’s the following statement:
‘Curses can be and are an acceptable form of “Sacrifice” as long as the person being cursed is deserving of it’
I seem to have some mixed feelings about it, because I do see how people can be “bad” enough to deserve cursing. I’ve cursed, but there’s always been a selfish part: it made me feel better to curse, it helped me to let go of anger/frustration, it gave me the idea that if the person would be punished they would not harm other people anymore.
I wonder how other people look at this statement. Do you agree that a curse could be a sacrifice? Then which part is the sacrifice? Is it the energy you put into it? Is it that you’re pointing out people deserving of some celestial spanking? Is it something I’m completely overlooking?
Thank you for reading, have a great day.
