Wisdom for the Stupefied
As tomorrow is the Satanic Grand Climax and I will be “busy”, I have decided to post the blog today. I want to say a special welcome to those who are lurking in the shadows; hungry for the truth and searching for so much more in life. I have been where you are……come out; do not be afraid, here you are among friends.
I have visited a few blogs and websites this week that seem to imply the tragic events that took place in Colorado are somehow tied to the Satanic Grand Climax ritual. I am not going to beat my chest with macho masculinity and precipitancy at the misguided audacity of those narrow-minded fools. I will simply say it is a sad, deplorable and grievous event that deserves our collective respect of the survivors’ privacy during their time of grieving.
“Magic is a science. It is the only science which occupies itself, theoretically and practically, with the highest forces of nature, which are occult. It declares and proves that the universe, in its totality as in each of its smallest parts, is subject to certain fluid influences and that science can prove this, the day that it will, to be the basis of all psychic and physical phenomenon. To operate with these forces, according to the laws which regulate them, it is necessary, first of all, to concentrate them in a point or on a given surface. One can, then, guide and channel them at will.”
Magia Sexualis: A Treatise on Sexual Magick by Pascal Beverly Randolph
Knowledge is a necessary prerequisite to the practice of Sex Magic and the practitioner should constantly seek ways to increase his / her knowledge while remaining open-minded enough to accept the truth when it is in front of them. In the pursuit of the keys that unlock the gates of intelligence, humans are sometimes hasty in discounting ideas and results that were not expected; which often leads to the wrong choices and decisions later in the process. We are so excited to discover something new that we let it slip through our fingers without learning it.
The road to wisdom is paved with many, many wrong assumptions. The separation of reality and placebo is an ongoing challenge for all beginning practitioners of magic. Satanism has always been a pluralistic and decentralized system with the many splinters of the core, yet the belief in magic and magical principles remains an underlying denominator of attraction. The question of “How do I control magic?” surfaces many times more than the question of magic’s true existence. With a relatively eager and willing following, the dimensional boundaries do not appear to be insurmountable as in years past. The promise of opening the secrets of the ages calls to the new initiates and they gladly respond in kind.
Letting Go of the Past
When young, we are impressionable and a bit naive. As we grow older we begin to analyze our childhood in search of clues that could possibly reveal things overlooked. The older we get, the more questions are posed without answers. For those victims of the xtian youth, unlearning the specific cognitive programming can prove to be a huge feat. I was reminded of this fact when I received an email asking for my opinion on such a matter.
In the progression of maturing to adulthood, we are sometimes plagued by the past and as we question everything for validity, the Law of Primacy must be addressed. Based on this cognitive law, people retain information they learn for the first time longer than they retain information they must 1) unlearn and then 2) relearn. Unlearning incorrect procedures (such as bad habits) is always more difficult than learning the correct procedures in the beginning. The law applies to a person’s belief system as well. If brainwashing (reprogramming) techniques are applied directly (intentionally) or indirectly as in a home where the principles of xtianity are literally hammered into the child’s psyche through constant bombardment and repetition, letting go of those dogma-infused ideals will require a great deal of unlearning to result in normalcy.
Equally difficult to reverse are the effects of the Law of Intensity. This principle states that if the stimulus (experience) is real, the more likely there is to be a change in behavior (learning). A vivid, dramatic or exciting learning experience teaches more than a routine or boring experience. “A person will learn more from the real thing than from a substitute.” This law is very helpful when cementing an idea into the person’s “operating system” in a positive way however, it can also be applied in a negative manner if intentionally taught the incorrect method for a required task.
If these two laws are combined, it could potentially take years of adulthood to overcome the primary instincts from childhood. Many people suffer from the effects of the two laws combined and applied to them during their young, formidable years of psychological development. These are real issues with real (and often guilt-ridden) physical and mental pain and traumas. Many of the readers who are lurking in the shadows at this very moment are suffering from real symptoms created from this root cause. Sometimes the only treatment is time and patience. It takes time to indoctrinate a person into a way of life and similarly, it takes time to identify, accept, unlearn and relearn in order to overcome the cognitive “infighting“. If an unhealthy amount of fear and negative reinforcement is added to this recipe, the stage is set for mental anguish and torment. It is freedom from this and other parental / guardian-imposed traumas that a person must always fight to win. This can be a lifelong challenge to overcome for some people. Emotions are often the symbolic chains that prevent the individual from successfully recovering from the infirmity.
For all of the Satanic Ritual Abuse (SRA) claims posted in cyberspace, the individual struggling with separating reality from fiction can also be abused indefinitely. While therapy attempts to treat the symptoms, the root cause(s) rage like an uncontrollable fire from within the individual. It is easy to see how the diagnosis can be misinterpreted as resentment, rebellion, unresolved problems, authority issues and conformity, etc. when it is much deeper and may potentially result in frustration, self-destructive / maladaptive behavior(s) and possibly Dissociative identity disorder. If not addressed, the human’s symbolic operating system will attempt to resolve the symptoms while overlooking the true illness.
The Tainted Well
In determining what a person believes, the individual should evaluate the possibilities to find what fits best. The Satanist is no different and while we have a grounding point, the sky is the limit when it comes to the specifics of the person’s theology. Satanism is a broad category with infinite belief combinations and possibilities. For example, there are atheists who claim to be Satanists (I never figured that out); there are strict followers of certain self-proclaimed and enthroned gurus, there are Satanists who believe in Satan as the King of the World and the list goes on and on. In a perfect world, each individual would recognize and respect another individual’s beliefs; even if not in total agreement with the theology…………in a perfect world…………
We do not live in a perfect world and you can probably think of some Satanists who have publicly attacked one another; perhaps not a result of their belief differences but something else. Still, the bickering continues and while not my concern, nor do I have any idea about the history of the disagreement, I will say those readers who are lurking in the shadows at this very moment are forming an opinion as to what they want from their life and ultimately, what their personal beliefs will be based upon going forward.
It is funny how a small amount of Escherichia coli (also called E. coli) can cause serious infections in humans. A centralized primitive water well that is contaminated can easily spread infections throughout a community. It does not matter the size, color, texture, etc. of the drinking glasses used by individuals, everyone who drinks from the well is in danger of contracting the bacteria and thus, the infection.
Religious beliefs can be symbolically the same as the contaminated well illustration. When everyone receives information from a single source and no one receives from an external source of differing information, there is a very real possibility that the entire Satanic community may become disillusioned, confused, ultimately fragmented and “unhealthy”. When the Satanic community listens, considers and discusses theologies and ideas, it is able to quench the thirst for knowledge (for a while at least) and it lowers the risk of exposure to the harmful toxins that may have seeped into a single information supply. Communication is healthy and it allows us to exchange thoughts without risk of “killing off our own kind”.
I sincerely hope those spreading the toxic poison in the public forums can find a common ground to begin treating the tainted well before eradicating Satanism. Remember those lurking in the shadows at this very moment. They are deciding their very fate…………..
I send Satanic Blessings and approbation to each and every person reading this post and I wish the best of success for all practitioners of the dark arts. Tomorrow night we speak with a single voice and our Master Satan will hear and bestow the Blessings of Hell upon us for the coming celebration. Focus on that which you desire and call upon the Demons of Hell to manifest and fulfill your every desire.
“Amen………Evil From Us Deliver…….” !!!
She screams!!!! Reserve is for cowards. This night we open her door widely and she will know us all. I bless the chalice and hold it to the inviting lips of the High Priestess. She gives thanks and kisses my lips deeply. Her hair is long, flowing raven black. I have called her heart and soul with gentle refrain. She kneels and touches me……………she knows exactly how a touch can bring a crescendo of ecstasy to a wondrous, frenetic pageant of artistry.
She takes me fully and I begin to accelerate in a steady ascent to the pinnacle perch of our Satanic sanctum. Chanting, chanting; “Bread Daily Our Day………” My head is spinning closer and sensitive, building passion, amplifying with every smooth motion. I will soon reward her with the victuals of her diligent labor.“Heaven In Art Who…..” She is taking me to that sublime sphere where all is seen in slowness and in a unity while we allow the deepest to emerge from the depths. Father is unaffected by the young gasp and screams as the wounded animal is symbolically devoured. Hail Satan!!!
I explode as she points me toward a Paten of wafers in her left hand. I discharge the full load onto the contents of the plate. Father yells as loud as thunder and withdraws. The wafers then absorb the claret of her inner thighs…..so young and tender, she shivers slightly. Our Father, as emerald lightning, departs and to us………HIS blessings linger. The Paten is thrown to the floor and trampled………….my legs are so weak but I deliver the benediction. Our princess is assisted by our priestess to a sitting position. It is complete! She is now “Family” and she will always have someone protecting her and the interests of our “Silent Order”.
