Word of the day: Effluvium.

A slight or invisible exhalation or vapor, especially one that is disagreeable or noxious.

I shall apply this to people who are wastes of oxygen or are just particularly stupid; one spews effluvium whenever they talk. Go now, and spread this new understanding among the peoples!

Circumambulation

Circle walking often denoting a spiritual or ritual practice. Labyrinth walking is a form circumambultation to induce an altered state of mind. One can circumambulate for purely psychological reasons if they wish.

Tip : Reaching altered states easier often involves rhythm and and flow, rather than concentration and focus (which can block mental flow) for many people. Walking in circles and labrynths and use of mandalas can become a mindless action and can be relaxing and repetitive, which helps many people. However, everyone is different, so different techniques can work more or less effectively for different people.

Demon

My source is from etymonline . com and the key words searched are demon, tide, and monos. Demon can be seen as a form of the word daimon , though I wanted to look past that and came up with the Grecian word demos (meaning people) which has the PIE root of da- and mono , which is seen as separation/division or group of individuals and singular/alone/one, respectively.

From this, we can see da-mon as the separation of a singular whole, or in reference as to the saying of 'the sum all parts' where demos relates specifically to the parts. We can honor that we are part of a larger picture while still being able to recognize that we are indeed individuals.

When thinking of the spirits we call demons, most call up the image of Hell, damnation, and evil personified. However, those who work with demons recognize that an entire race of beings cannot be identified with a singular traits as they are all individuals with their own personalities (as was just demonstrated in the etymological research). I could go on about how this could be interpreted for hours, but I shall leave it up to the reader to meditate on.
