I was wondering, why I dislike free book and directing runes I got for free from webpage elvenspirituality.wordpress.com, for it seemed very nice to me. Than I found out. I found this in more than this place and I must say it.
Don't dare to compare angels with Valar and Maiar! It is dangerous.
Why I care to say that? Because I must. There are two reasons and I believe that they are quite reasonable.
First: They are very, very different.While Angles are messegers and servants of god/Jesus, Valar and Maiar serve no one, they are free and independent and if they follow, then only by their free will.
Angels, when you meet them, push you into cristianity and fight with you, if you are mage or if you don't like cristian religion. They curse, bless, manipulate humans. Valar/Maiar do nothing of this. When they fight, they do so for preserving freedom of all and they do not desire to be worshiped, only honored as equals and free as they honor everybody else.
Second: Magic is forbitten to humans in cristianity, however angels do it everyday and in everything. Even the word angel/archangel is calling their energies. Comparing the earth spirits as Valar and Maiar to them doesn't change these free spirits, but connects you to chruistianity and it's "slavehunters" and can end by accepting it and loosing, who you are in the worst possibility.
You doesn't meet with Valar/Maiar in meditation, when you are meeting "angel like Vala", but disguisted angel.
Be weary about what do you say for you influence yourself and also many other who read, what do you write.
Valar are Valar, that word is, what describes them the best and the same with Maiar and with every kin.
Be weary for there is still much darkness in cristianity and the humans are not everyone around this "corporation", much remainst unseen and the last two thousand years shows enough about its intentions I believe.
So again I ask of you, do not compare Valar and Maiar with angels and archangels, it isn't for good at all. There are other ways to describe, who they are to those, who don't understand.
Why I realised it? I tried the meditation writen in the book about the star queen ynd instead of her I found only some angel, but I didn't see his disguise, I ignred him, but didnť see Varda anywhere. Something was wrong and today I realised, what it was.
