A Month of Written Devotion for Melek Ta’us, the Peacock Angel
You know, I’ve never thought of Happiness in relation to Melek Ta’us before. Our relationship hasn’t been the best–it’s made me frustrated, frightened, angry… Never happy. I’ve always had the impression that he’s not a god who is particularly concerned with happiness. With learning, yes. Care, love, passion–oh, yes, passion–but not happiness.
I suppose my understanding has been that he’s here to teach and to protect humanity, but we’re responsible for our own happiness. That’s fair, really. Can’t ask for too much.
But still… If I’m responsible for my own happiness, then how do I go about being happy with the Angel?
That’s one of the things devotion is good for, isn’t it? You can’t have a happy relationship if you don’t have a relationship to begin with.
