LHP Monastic life from Infernal Acumen's blog

I get a lot of questions in regard to my ritual garbs and lifestyle. Instead of addressing these questions individually, I will give an explanation here for those curious.

I am currently in the purification process along the Left Hand Path with efforts directed towards achievement of monasticism in the practice of religion. I am not a fully fledged monk at this time. I am taking this time to adapt myself to the lifestyle of LHP monasticism. There is an incredible amount of discipline required in the daily routines of an LHP monk. The learning, adaptation, and eventual performance of these disciplines on a routine basis of being a monk.

Just to give an idea of some of these disciplines (as there are too many to account for) are the following: perform multiple dedication/devotional rites/rituals per day. I never allow my body to be present without a symbol of the spirits/Dark Arts. It encompasses everything in my life all the way down to getting dressed and undressed which has an associated ritual with clothing order, prayers, body postures, etc. My diet has been adjusted, the way I eat (ie: posture, observance of substance existence, amount of food, silence during the ingestion period, etc.) is all finely calculated.

If anyone has a question not listed here, let me know and I'll add it to the list. Thank you.

Q: What do you wear on a daily basis?A: 95% of the time I wear at least partial monastic garbs. I have varying levels of formality associated with monastic garbs. The highest tier of formality is as you see in my profile picture for dark meditations, divination, rituals, and ceremonies. Once I reach full monkhood, I will be wearing ritual garments 100% of the time. There can be no deviation from this.

Q: What do you eat?A: 90% of my diet is steak/meats, eggs, noodles, and vegetables.

Q: What is the most challenging part of your day?A: Pushing myself to exercise. I have to train all aspects of my existence equally. This is a balancing act and the symbol of Baphomet. I must train physical, mental, and spiritual. This can loosely be translated to inducing physical strain on my body, academic and thought provoking exercises, and religious studies and dedications.

Q: What do you do for fun?A: I enjoy studying other languages, chess theory, music theory, and movies on occasion.

Q: What kind of music do you like?A: In descending order, I prefer dark ambience, classical, and death metal.

Q: Can you have a girlfriend/wife as an LHP monk?A: Yes, however I cannot allow them to cause any major disruption of my monastic lifestyle. They don't have to be supportive, but they do have to accept my lifestyle.

Q: How long is the purification phase of becoming a monk?A: It could take anywhere from a month to several years. Some LHP practitioners willingly withdraw from the purification process. Purification is the process by which we are instilling the necessary discipline required of monkhood. It is the training ground of testing to solidify one's choice of monastic life.

Q: Why do you always wear ritual garb?A: I always wear ritual garb because I live my life as a continual on-going ritual. It proves my dedication to the spirits and is a constant reminder of where I belong and what I should be doing.

Q: What is your motto as an LHP monk?A: Dedication and patience. Through these two virtues all things may be accomplished.

No, still at the same autistic impasse.

Is not using the demonic or whatever you call it to bend the cosmos to your will completely spiritual and right out of conventional method? If not way more idea based than what the Buddhist do. Do they really look to the divine or a concept of interconnectedness which is benefited by upstanding behavior?

Quote from a Buddhist for dummies like website:

"Buddhist moral systems grow out of a realization of the truth of the interdependence of all beings and all phenomena. While that realization gives rise to a strong commitment to virtue and compassion (since we are all deeply connected), the understanding that supports it is that there can be no absolute good or evil, precisely because of the interdependence and impermanence of all."

And what I mean is one defers to baseless claims of western mysticism and one defers to only a concept that interdependence of impermenant material existence is benefited by virtues of compassion.

Not like Karma is everlasting or even cosmically reciprocal.

"Karma is a term that literally means "action" or "doing". In the Buddhist tradition, karma refers to action driven by intention which leads to future consequences."

To me it seems like the methods are inverted to each-other. Both them and their designation for what stands apart from normative attainment.

I guess I'll never understand it. I can pretend what my Karma is though.

Fallen Angel:
The differences between the Eastern and Western esotericism can be boiled down to the the predominant philosophies of the regions, which also just so happen to be used as the platform for the various religions of the day given their dominant and widespread acceptance.
-
Eastern esotericism relates to the philosophies of Hinduism, Buddhism, Taoism, Confuciuism, etc. Western esotericism deals primarily with Abrahamic philosophies and due to America's melting pot some European philosophies as well. Thus, how western esotericism is also a basis for foundational Satanic thought.

I will do this one.

"8. Light-oriented spirits as opposed to Dark-oriented spirits."

I totally get this. I used to like only red candy. It could satisfy my sweet tooth. Then I switched to cyan candy and a switch flipped. And then it satisfied by sweets cravings. And because I like cyan way more than red it was a natural replacement.
I will do this one.

How does your order feel about magical cloaks? It's an evil cloak that shrouds itself in the darkness of a thousand tortured lambs. It harnesses the powers of sinister darkness. And with the infernal cloak comes the hood of the Magi. Dark of colour and emblazoned with celestial imagery. It's certainly not for the apprentice. Tomfoolery will bring retribution upon the dark artist if used unethically.How does your order feel about magical cloaks?

If such a cloak existed, it would definitely be an item of power to be donned with care and to be used effectively.

There is a slight, yet meaningful difference between conducting the Dark Arts forms of dedications and devotionals.
-
Dedication: A ritualistic act of the Dark Arts in the giving of time, prayers as communication, sacrifice, and/or parts of the self as a pledge of allegiance to a/the demonic spirit(s).
-
Devotional: A ritualistic at of the Dark Arts in the giving of time, prayers, sacrifice, and/or parts of the self as a form of worship of a/several demonic spirit(s).

There are two areas of concern for which we should care; one more so than the other. The physical realm and the metaphysical/astral plane(s).
I do not believe we are physical beings living in a one-time trapped life here to pass into nothingness. I assert that we are strictly spiritual beings enclosed within this weak physical carcass, governed by the weaknesses of the mind which is controlled by our spiritual conscienceness; the soul. Our spirit will live on beyond the residual echoes of our will (ie: ghosts). We are more than that.
THE BODY:
The necessity to care for our physical body promotes the health of the organs to permit successful workings through being well rested, physically strong, and mentally alert. Our bodies are the weakest part of our being, but through rigorous exercise and proper diet, we will chase away tiredness, slothfulness, and other distracting aspects of the body which only exist to weaken us. We all know how to care for our bodies. We know what we should and shouldn't eat. We all know at least basics of exercise. We have all the required tools to feed our knowledge base to grow in this area; the internet. Don't allow your body to bottleneck your most important work; spiritual practice. The stronger the body, the stronger the mind.
THE MIND:
The care of our body has an effect on our mind. By adhering to the above, our mind will then become the bottleneck to our being. Strengthen the mind by reading the appropriate grimoires, philosophy books, and academic materials. Increase the proficiency of your mind through thought provoking exercises such as playing chess and studying computer simulated 'best moves', playing music and integrating a more technically sound creative melody by adding such ideas as note skipping, arpeggios, 5th and 7th notes, etc. Find ways to create mind-blowing experiences which open new creative doors of possibilities. This type of expansion of the mind exponentially increases strength. Don't allow your mind to bottleneck your most important work; spiritual practice. The stronger the mind, the stronger the spirit.
THE SPIRIT:
Our spirit is the only eternal part of the self we have. Everyone has spirit and uses the strength of the spirit. When athletes show to 'have heart', they are actually pushing forward propelled by their conscience efforts with spirit. When someone is fighting for their life in the hospital, the only way to survive is to not allow their spirit to be broken. This is us. This is who we are. Meditate, ritualize, concentrate. When everything else in this world passes, we will be spending an eternity with only our spirits left of what we have here. Dedication of life should be in the pursuit of the betterment of the self, the spirit...
TO THOSE WHO DON'T BELIEVE:
To embody the highest of LHP progressive principals: the greatest form of advice I could give came from a man much wiser than me. I'm a big fan of quotes as others who came before me once said it best:
-
"Live as though you were to die tomorrow. Learn as if you were to live forever". ~ Mahatma Gandi
-
If one were to live their life by this quote, our [both theists and atheists of the LHP] actions would be the same although our beliefs would be different. This is one of the reasons I pull to all LHP practitioners in the spectrum. Our methods are similar but with differing perspectives. Keep strong, don't give way to those things which don't matter. Be what you visualize as your apotheosis. Hail and farewell!
