Evil – Point of Reference
I really wonder what future civilizations will say about our time…………..our generations. At times, it is fairly easy to look back at people who are no longer here and mock / reticule them for their backward ways and primitive belief systems. The idea that our ancestors actually thought thunder was the gods speaking to them is like a modern-day sighting of Elvis at Taco Bell.
Humans have always tried to explain the world around them; especially the areas they know nothing about. Some attempt to use the information to control the populous and others use it to instigate fear and pandemonium, producing instability in the human relational scheme; usually to serve their own wants and needs. There are also those who have witnessed unexplainable events and have tried to describe the occurrence while lacking an understanding of what actually happened. Many are dismissed as deranged fools however, not all can be dismissed as such.
Evil is one of those experiences that is like wine: Each experience is interpreted differently and while some are wonderful, others are disgusting to the individual. What is palatable to one person is repulsive to another which makes evil a slippery subject to corner into one category.
Anyone spending time with me on this blog can attest that I love women and I find every part of a woman an intriguing curiosity that I love to explore and savor. Some may say that I love pornography and that categorizes me as “maladaptive” to acceptable norms. I argue however, “one man’s trash is another’s treasure” and the fact that I love women’s bodies – no matter the medium or forum – makes me………….well, more of an Aficionado.
Evil can be described the same way. If I classify something as evil, that is my opinion and certainly there is someone who would disagree with me. It really comes down to individual “taste” when defining evil…….one size does not fit all. The definition is up to the end-user; not the observer. If you do not like the taste of the wine, choose another, then another, until you find the one that pleases you. Satanism is much the same; find what is right for you and your coven. Do not heed the banter of the Internet-Satanic-Evangelists selling potions, spells and bullshit. If it works for you, make it your own.
Some Need the Power
This brings me to a question that I often receive via email. “How can I sell my soul to the devil?” What is the hype concerning “selling one’s soul” to Satan?
First, a little lesson on the Satanic / Demonic world. Satan nor Demons are willing to serve your needs without serving theirs. You will never win the lottery or be a successful Magus without the understanding of quid pro quo. Success comes from win-win situations and your ability to align yourself with the wants of others. The physical world works the same way………….“Hey, make me a millionaire cause I think you should……Your friend, Aleister!” Do you feel that I am worthy of such a gift for simply asking? Satan and the Hosts of Hell are generous and will assist with your desires however, “What is in it for them?” Some say they wish to sell their soul……….this means nothing to Satan except the person has no other collateral or talents to offer in return.
You win when they win; they help you win because they will win………if you win.
