Many people in modern culture today are under the false impression that Satanism is a justification to break all the rules, laws and acceptable norms of society. I’m not going to deny that being a Satanist certainly makes some people feel uninhibited. For some people, becoming a Satanist is a milestone since they have never felt uninhibited and free the way that Satanism makes them feel. I will say this however, being a Satanist does not give an individual the right to break the law or infringe upon another person’s rights. Becoming an audacious, loudmouth, asshole is not part of a Satanist’s journey….far from it actually.
The practice of magic in any form requires a great deal of self-control. I often read about Chaos Magic; there are many different interpretations of that term being used. For some chaos is simply going crazy. Many anarchists practice what they describe as chaos magic (what they interpret to be chaos magic). Anarchy and Satanism are not the same thing; far from it.
For an individual to be totally free is not to say that person can impose his / her will on another nor does it relieve that person from responsibility for his / her own actions. It is very frustrating because many of these people take a little bit of Satanism with a dash of Devil Worship and they bastardize it into something that has no practical application in the true magical dark arts.
There are actually many different forms of Satanism; there are those who are more Theistic….Devil Worshipers as myself; there are also those who are Spiritual Satanists as well as Atheist Satanist. I do not agree with their philosophies and that is my right, just as they may not agree with my philosophy however, I know what works for me. As long as I am not imposing my beliefs upon another, I have the right and freedom to believe what I want to believe.
Many in the occult community are just as irritated when those who are ignorant, begin interpreting and defining another’s belief system. I have dedicated my life to my practice of Satanic Magic. There are those who have dedicated their lives to their particular philosophy; it is not for me to judge whether they are right or wrong or otherwise! That is a xtian ideal-not a Satanic ideal. If a person wants to worship a tree, a rock, or a woman’s vagina, that is not for me to judge if it is stupid or quite intelligent. When that person attempts to interpret my beliefs or when the person attempts to impose his / her beliefs or criticize me for my beliefs, that is where his / her freedom ENDS and my freedom BEGINS.
Satanists are also not pacifists; I personally do not mind altercation and I certainly do not mind conflict. I have had many conflicts in my life and I do not run nor do I backdown from such a challenge. I will highly recommend however, that Satanists always account for their actions. If you violate the law and end up in prison, do not blame someone else; man up and acknowledge how you ended up there. I do not blame my misfortunes on anyone else just as I do not credit someone with my successes! If I am successful in a certain endeavor, I take credit for it. There is only one person that will act on your behalf without hesitation; YOU!
I will not lay down my life for another person unless I feel I absolutely should. I would not do it because of principle and I certainly would not do it because of obligation. Ultimately, my actions are direct results of a conscious decision. I will not blame anyone else for my misgivings and I certainly will not blame chance or luck; those things do not exist. There are certain circumstances that occur as mathematical logic and there are certain things that can be predicted using mathematical equations and statistical equations. Do not confuse luck and logic; they are not the same.
Fate is also a concept many people misunderstand. My interpretation of fate is going to be quite different from yours. I do not believe we are predestined for anything in particular. I do not believe that Kings are predestined before they are born and I certainly do not believe that mass murderers are created while in the womb. I do not believe the higher beings have predestined or preordained anyone to be anything. Some people will say great people in history were predestined; it was his / her destiny to become that which they became. I do not agree with that. I believe each person has choices and some of those choices are very difficult.
I also believe there are circumstances people encounter during their journey of life however, it does not sentence the person to become anything other than what they want to become. If you choose motivation and have a burning desire for achievement, you can be successful in whatever you desire. Conversely, if you choose to be lazy and waste your life watching daytime television, you will never achieve anything……that is just a simple principle of life. You invest to reap; you plant seeds in order to harvest; if you do not make a plan, you will never arrive at your goal! These principles are not Satanic per se however, these principles are common sense.
Many Satanists are students of human nature. The reason why is because knowing more about humans and their thought processes will easily create an advantage for the Satanist. If you know how a person will react to certain information or stimuli, you can certainly predict the way you will be able to use that information to your advantage in the future. This is not rocket science and it really has nothing to do with magic per se yet, knowing this information and asking the demons to assist you will certainly improve your chances of fulfilling your objectives.
Until next time, Satanic Blessings!!
