It’s never entirely clear just how powerful a deity is just by first glance. The way that they manifest during ritual doesn’t reveal the true extent of their power, and oftentimes we make judgments on their power by how intensely they manifest and the presence we feel when we are near them.
However, I have rarely seen instances where a magician, say, does a scan or a divination on a deity to determine, " Oh, X deity has this level of enormous power."
And, even if they could, it seems as though that beyond a certain threshold, their true capacities are beyond our ability to comprehend.
Judging off of this, a person would logically conclude that beings of such cosmic scale have spent an incomprehensible amount of time in order to accumulate both power and knowledge.
It would then seem to suggest that a human being simply can not be as powerful as that within a single lifetime.
However, there have been statements in the past that seem to conflict with this judgment. I remember Sevarn, and how Belial told him that he was going to become more powerful than him in time. I also remember another User who evoked King Paimon, who said that if he could master the mind, then he would be able to accomplish more than he can even with all of his legions.
I also believe now that humans underestimate their own power and the power they are able to gain over a single lifetime, because they do not understand the energies they have access to and their potential for growth.
Moreover, the idea that only humans in the physical plane have the potential to become true “living gods” suggests that as well.
Is there any message from the spirits that can confirm this?
