Satanism and the Fall Equinox

Note: I am posting the blog this morning since I will be “busy” tonight. Enjoy!

“Magic is believing in yourself, if you can do that, you can make anything happen.”

When searching for your belief in Satanism, you will try various approaches until you finally find what is right for you. I know; I have said this many, many times before however this topic always returns to the forefront of inquisitive emails I receive from readers. Some have read one paragraph from my blog and they are ready to ask a million questions. I try to answer their questions or at least send them a link to a blog post that will give them the information they seek. Hey, I’m a nice guy………..but more than that, I remember my past and how I endured some “know it all” belligerent pricks who loved to hear themselves talk much more than anyone was interested in hearing.Demons Feast

I also receive emails from those who disagree with my ideas and beliefs. I don’t mind hearing from these folks even though I did not ask their opinion still I might engage in an email reply just for amusement. In the end, I have my belief and they have theirs and apart from a conversation, neither party comes to the realization to change their beliefs. Then, there is the occasional “unofficial Critic”. This person wants nothing more than to be a wise-ass and provoke anyone. These idiots are not worth the time to reply……..that is what the Delete key is used for and it feels rather good to flush their two page meandering email down the virtual toilette. As a Satanist, one of the most liberating feelings is the lack of obligatory personal commitment to another person. I do not owe anyone an answer nor do I care about their issues with my beliefs. They can “pound sand” in my opinion. If someone is being a dick head, I am not obliged to defend my beliefs. My beliefs work for me. I digress.

The theologies and beliefs of Satanism are numerous and very diverse. Most people take the “I’ll know it when I see it” approach which is the method I choose many years ago. When I first became interested in the occult, I researched several different belief systems and none were really to my liking. Satanism was the one that made sense; although I did not (and do not) agree with Anton LaVey 100%. I am not an atheist; I am a Satanist. I began to explore the path that has led to my current beliefs.

Different approaches work for different people and what brings me success may do nothing for someone else. For this reason, one should not become bogged down in dogma unless that dogma produces pleasing results. The idea that one Satanist must replicate another Satanist’s ritual, prayer, etc is wrong. If someone “dictates and mandates” in Satanism, this will be the first indication that you should seek knowledge elsewhere; rather quickly.

I have pointed out numerous times in my writings that the practitioner must open the mind and visualize the outcome of a working. Many searchers read a few articles on the internet and perhaps buy a book or two and begin performing rituals without knowing what they are doing. This approach goes beyond simple experimentation to almost a laughable blasphemy of evil. In many cases, the practitioner looses interest because “nothing happens”. What did the practitioner expect to happen? That approach is similar to dialing phone numbers at random with the hope of reaching another Satanist. Logically and mathematically, there are better chances of winning the lottery.Satanic Masterbation

Also, do not become bogged down in the minutia of having the right incense, the right color altar, etc.  Having those items does not guarantee success. You cannot replicate magic; you can replicate the inner sanctum, candles, incense, rituals, etc. however, these things do not create magic. These things help to “set a mood” for the magician just as a prop can assist the actor but it is the actor, not the prop, that delivers the performance.

I have reiterated the fact that the practitioner should align their desires with the desires of the Hosts of Hell in order to reap the most from their magical working. What does Satan want from the practitioner? That is for the practitioner to learn and understand; NO ONE ELSE KNOWS THESE DESIRES. The techniques of Satanic Meditation can assist the practitioner in opening the lines of communication with their Familiar or other beings. Satan does not email His desires so stop waiting and begin working. There are many extreme beliefs created by incompetents and fed to idiots. These so called “satanists” are nothing more than atheists or anarchists. True Satanic Magic has never, nor will ever, be controlled by these posers. 

Satanism is a journey and even the Satanists who have been affiliated with the dark arts for years should still be recording their works in a grimoire and striving to increase their magical dominance and improve their Satanic processes. There is no such thing as a Satanic PhD. All followers of the dark arts must explore, experiment and seek to increase their knowledge and skills.Sex with the Devil

What Do You Believe?

“If you don’t stand for something you will fall for anything.” 
― Malcolm X

Everyone believes in something. I believe in the existence of Satan and demons. I believe there are good people in the world and I also believe there are those who mistreat and misuse everyone they come into contact with during their life; even committing criminal acts. I also believe these individuals deserve punishment that fits the crime…..pure and simple.

Faith is different from belief and there are situations wherein both belief and faith coexists concurrently and there are those times when they do not coexist. Your belief system is the set of precepts which deeply influence your daily life accordingly, governing your thoughts, words and actions. Your beliefs serve as a litmus test used before your actions (or inactions) are taken. For the woman believing abortion is morally wrong, there is never a consideration of undergoing that procedure, regardless of the circumstances.

When young, we listen to what adults say, such as parents, in order to ascertain their beliefs and align our beliefs with theirs. As we mature, more questions are asked with the objective of eliminating the “grey areas” that are not as clearly defined and are more complex to analyze. Belief can often lead a person to an unpleasant reckoning and no amount of explanation or justification will change the person’s belief.

Information Filtering is often used by a Sender to introduce erroneous information which in turn, may cause the Receiver to misunderstand or question their previous understanding; and ultimately, their belief of a topic. If the belief becomes “questionable“, faith in the validity and accuracy of the belief is called into question……….at least it should be in pursuit of the truth. A dangerous chain of events may be set into motion if a person or group has an abnormally high level of faith in a belief; such a level in which the introduction of valid facts and data, contrary to the belief, are ignored or discounted. Indicators of the presence of this situation can be emotional rebuttal, abnormally heightened emotions to possibly include emotional escalation to the point of verbally (and in extreme cases, physically) attacking the Sender of the communications. The hostilities of the Receiver seem to be “over the top” creating an unprofessional and non-conducive environment. How does something so simple to discuss end in such an altercation?

In a word………..Faith.

When a belief is so important to an individual or group, two things occur; 1) The belief is accepted as an unwavering fact and 2) Faith is placed not only in the belief but also in the information that supports the belief, resulting in faith. During the course of questioning the information supporting a belief, the Believer begins to view this as a personal attack of their faith.

That is precisely what makes a situation of this type very dangerous for all parties involved; just as a flame in the presence of gasoline vapors can cause an immediate chain reaction.

Again, our example of an abortion. If a group believes abortion is wrong and they collectively refuse to listen to the supporting information and reasoning, the group may simultaneously retaliate to the situation by beginning a campaign to not only prove their point is correct but also, personally attack and smear the person or persons providing the information. It is a volatile situation that can quickly “get out of hand“.

Humans are genetically engineered with a need to believe in something or someone. That is why the xtian bible has been in print longer than most books. The hand-selected collection of stories are taken literally as truth by those following the xtian belief system. With their belief, comes an affirmation through their “profession of faith” which requires the public acceptance of the bible as the true word of their god. As with any pact, oath, charge, promise, etc. there is a contractual type of “consideration” given to the person offering allegiance. The xtians offer their life and soul in exchange for admittance to a heavenly place in the future.

The attributes of heaven differs from other religious belief systems; for example, the offer of virgins for their commission of fornication is not acceptable for the xtian belief of heaven. The premise of religious rules extends into their heavenly realm, just as they believe here on earth. Nonetheless, it is a quid pro quo arrangement of “I give to receive” for all religions.

Satanism underwent the same culling effect when Anton LaVey presented The Satanic Bible to the world. Anton wrote the Satanic Bible to provoke thought within those who are students of human psychological nature and who understand the assemblage of the Satanic Bible’s chapters and previously released treatises was to invoke discussion and consideration of ideas yet to be explored. Humans took the book and began to suggest (to Anton’s displeasure) that all Satanists should believe every word and take literally the precepts set forth therein in order to call themselves Satanists.

In an effort to “hammer Satanism into a packaged religion“, the collection of LaVey followers splintered and have undergone several changes in structure over the past decades. It is this human need that often takes great ideas and bastardizes them to the point of only slight resemblance of the original idea. Whether for control of the group, monetary gains or otherwise, humans tend to fuck up just about all of the good things and ideas that come around……first by dictating the requirements, inventing some type of regulatory requirement and implementing a controlling compliance system (militia) to enforce their dictates and impose punitive measures for noncompliance. I suppose laws are often created to protect us from ourselves however, laws tend to stifle the creative process before reaching true fruition. In order to make great strides in any system, there must be the freedom for the system to mature; creating opportunities that were never dreamt.

Belief and faith may cause the undoing and demise of many humans in the years to come. The xtians watch the world stage for certain events they believe will usher in a new period of time. The Book of Revelation is the final book of the bible, written by a man who identified himself as John, exiled on the Greek island of Patmos. The book documents a dream the author had which alludes to future events leading to the end of time. Verses of the book are vague and heavily laden with symbolism and ambiguous and amorphous denotations, which cause speculation, conjecture and supposition. Religious groups often form their opinions and interpretations of these events and describe them as “prophesies given to them by god”. Followers of the various sects believe and begin putting faith into these prophesies; refusing to consider other ideas, theories or interpretations by any other person or group.

Armed with their beliefs, faith and intolerance of other ideas and religions, these may actually be “self-fulfilled prophesies” brought about through the manipulation of world events to orchestrate wars, famines, pestilences and world-wide death. These xtians actually look forward to these horrible events of suffering because they believe they will be exempt from these prophesies. Herein lies the root cause for fanatical religious practices and other religions are no different. Whether muslim, xtian or jewish belief systems, the same is true. Perhaps the subject matter and holy names are different but the premise and methodology remains the same.

Everyone in the world must suffer while their club members are spared by an imaginary god who prefers them enough to call them “Chosen People”.

Their beliefs are based upon lies; their faith is based upon fantasy; their salvation is based upon the demise of everyone else; their god advocates hate, murder and mass genocide; their “rule books” were written by pedophiles, murderers, bigamist, liars and thieves; they believe they control the keys to their imaginary kingdom where the same hierarchy and religious paradigm will be instituted, imposed and policed for all eternity.

If that is a “heaven”, IT IS NOT MY IDEA OF A HEAVEN AND I DO NOT WISH TO BE IN THEIR PRESENCE OR UNDER THEIR CONTROL AND SLAVERY. I DON’T LIKE THEM NOW, SO WHY WOULD I WANT TO SPEND ETERNITY WITH THESE FREAKS AND FANATICS.

I believe this will hurt!!

Until next time,

Aleister Nacht
