The LHP and the occult in general has suffered from communication blocks since it's beginning. In modern times this may cause a person to lurk rather than join or worry about meeting others in the real world. Information about the occult is spotty and in some cases difficult to find, if you don't know where to look. I have tried to distribute what I know but I can see others have done the same thing. The community is still largely uninformed and poorly connected. In Thelema we use the word "Promulgation" which is an alternative to protestation. It meas that instead of knocking on doors or screaming in the streets we simply attempt to give the "this is what we do and think."speech. Even when one does this for Thelema or the LHP or any occult group for that matter, there are distinct problems.

This is made worse when one reaches a point where any learning outside of what can be found in an Amazon search or a moderate period of research a wall is encountered. This is made worse when some teaching groups are simply bent on hero worship or rigid dogma.

Groups like the Rosicrucians and Theosophists have maintained large occult libraries for at least a century and several occult libraries exist online but again a wall is encountered that would not exist if community were better.

Despite how independent one is learning is always faster if collaboration exists on some level. Many groups, however have several limits and gatekeepers which create a giant corn maze that serves no purpose, except to insure the occult is, in the words of Omar Sharif in Lawrence of Arabia considered " Silly, barbarous, and cruel."

The situation is made even more crazy when you take into account that some of the better occult groups have goals and focus that is not told to the initiates but given at higher levels. I have often complained that this procedure not only ensures initiates arrive at the point of the meaning of a group not by choice but by chance and indoctrination. This seems counter-productive. It also keeps the adepts locked away in echo chambers and unchallenged in lock step with whatever system they are into, thus acting to retard the system from evolving.

I have noticed that the more advanced voices in the occult have been surprisingly inactive and quiet on several sites on the web, leaving the uninformed, sloppy, or showy occultists to rule the roost and write the narrative the public sees.

Maybe my expectations for occult groups are too high. I have noticed some more well known groups both RHP and LHP lament that membership should be better and that something should be done about the public narrative.

Perhaps it seems that I too have donned the tinfoil hat when I talk of the tinfoil hat crowd saying that Luciferians control the media and Hollywood or that there are stories of Thelemites feeding cakes of light to the child slaves on mars in the slave mines. All this is just silliness, right?

In the 80s the police and psychologists were looking into recovered memory phenomena, made films about how occult murders were commonplace, and evangelists were considered "occult experts" by both groups.

I see a pile of dry wood. We can either treat it to make it fire resistant and build something, or we can do nothing as it ignites and burns us.

I am not rabble rousing here, or at least I hope I am not. I want to move forward with things and see the existing communication networks as a way to create unity and collaborate.

Some will pause because the very thought of social media makes them cringe. Some will see this as unnecessary as the communities they are in are large and safe and the surrounding secular and religious environment seems tame and accepting.

To those who feel let down by social media with its knee jerk politics, selfies, and pictures of meals, I say that just because a thing can be used in a silly manner does not mean that it can be used for better things.

To those in the comfortable large communities basking in acceptance or at least tolerance, I say that not everybody has that luxury. Geography and life situation can create barriers that should not exist.

Better communication and collaboration would help everyone. To those marooned for a myriad of reasons a vibrant online community can be a lifeline. It allows them to live in intolerant and even hostile areas and still learn and grow. Perhaps ultimately allowing them to change the way we are regarded and treated in areas and social groups most of us avoid.

Some of us live in areas and situations of lukewarm intolerance. No one is lynching us and the cops do not get called every time we might forget our voices and get a little loud in ritual but we may fear loss of job if discovered or may be maligned by our family and even friends. I lament that I was not allowed to attend my nieces wedding. I do not blame my family, I blame the muffle over the voice of our community and how it allows people outside to define us.

More community means that our systems and methods would improve. The reasons for this are obvious.

I am not some guru or an expert just a dedicated enthusiast. I have no ambitions for leadership in the community outside of this identity I mention. I am not trying to display humility as I can brag with the best of them. I am just tired of the silly games I have to play every time I get into a group or website to get the ball rolling.

I enjoy working with a group and have sometimes worked alone. I just believe that both types of practitioners would benefit by exchange of knowledge outside of available texts, an improved public narrative, a larger pool of those new people that bring with them more approaches to the various problems and enigmas we face and perhaps new questions.

I am tired of the phenomena of the curious student who fears trying out something they read about and have interest in, because they cannot find a "master", "linage", or "tradition." The interest becomes a pipe dream as they become shaped by whatever is available. We can do better.

To this end I have spent the last year poking my nose into various occult social media sites and online resources. I have not seen them all, surely, but I have made friends along the way.

Occasionally I run into folks in my area but even though that was my original intention I am thinking along a much greater scope.

There are new sites cropping up like Island93 and old ones are planning revamps but I think more is possible.

I have experimented with a small online community and have found that such sites can be expanded to have a presence on several types of occult and non occult social media.

If such a thing can be done with two sites what about several? Obviously the thing many would be worried about is anonymity.

I have a test community website I have several people I interact with. They are grouped on another more conventional social media platform by different names. The connection is known only by me and in some cases not even me. I do not have such information on file or written down.

What I have done on two websites I would like to do on several, but here is the thing....I would like to see others do the same. This already exists to some extent, I want to amplify and expand this process. The lines of communication need to be improved and expanded.

I really do not know where this process is taking me if anywhere at all. I do believe that the value of a network over a single venue is that a single site can be taken down, censored and dominated. Doing this to a large healthy network is much more difficult. Not really sure how to move ahead yet. If anyone has any ideas please collaborate with me, if you want. All PMs mentioning the network will be responded to regardless of source or content.

I have a nephew-in-law who brags that he has no digital footprint. I find this hilarious. The Evangelists have been warning us of the system with the chips in our hands for several decades now. Even a friend of mine who I sincerely respect has voiced issues of discomfort over such distopian systems as facebook.

What on Earth could any of this have to do with the LHP? Allow me to take you there.

The RHP and conventional spirituality concerns itself really with two maybe three worlds. The physical and the spiritual and all that. I submit that the multiverse is demonstrably much larger than that.

When one practices magick in both the western and eastern traditions it is at least touched on that there are other worlds, some less gross and more sublime and others more elemental and even dark. To those of you who are theistic such realms are seen as being objectively real and to those who bend more towards the atheistic, such worlds represent states of mind and stages in development. In both cases there is a tendency to see such worlds having a linear progression or in at least two systems this is seen as a tree like pattern.

Being theistic myself I believe that if you take the tree pattern and project it outward in a fractal pattern, it is at least conceivable that in addition to the single tree and it's roots below there is a forest of infinite progression that moves outward and inward and possibly more.

It is in the physical that I wish to demonstrate that this progression continues into the infinitesimal as well as the infinite. I will try to spare you as much of the math as I am able.

Imagine the system of human knowledge as used by the authorities as it was 30 years ago. They knew you were born and if you died. They knew a bit about your larger purchases and criminal record. Who and when you married and your children.

If they wanted to they could collect information on your diet, bad habits and the like but that was it.

The limited perspective that allows triangulation and therefore not only allows visual information but distance and in some cases velocity.

Now lets extend this model to today. How much do they know? Your buying habits, your likes, your purchases large and small. The web traffic they can trace and your personal conversations....but hold on. That is a huge amount of information. They must have people watching us night and day. Actually it gets much worse.

You see no human agency could even realistically process just the information that facebook collects in a single state. They use A.I. and algorithms. Patterns are found and classified and those patterns lead to macro and micro patterns which lead to other patterns. Remember the concept of binary vision, well imagine that expanded exponentially by the cold algorithms of the A.I.s every two spawning a third. This allows the system to predict behavior of both individuals and the masses.

By now you are probably thinking like my nephew-in-law and wanting to give the system as little to work with as possible, or perhaps you just want to quit reading and pretend that it just is not happening. I believe there is another option.

Just as the process is monitoring you it can also be fed. An A.I. does not know false information from real information. A pattern never cries. Rather than just trying to hide from the monster I believe it can be controlled.

You can study simple A.I.s as I have done. I started studying the behavior of bots on the old ircs and later the publicly accessible A.I.s that many site allow people to converse with. Though these are not the Leviathans that monitor and compare the facbook input and you purchases they are miniatures of them and run by many of the same principals allowing insights on how they function.

I have long since believed that occult force sometimes uses very physical and seemingly mundane means of moving from one person to another. I believe that the mind and language allow "back end" programs to move from one person to another. I believe that is why Christianity stresses listening to sermons and believes in the infallibility and spiritual power of what is basically a text document.

I believe that many times a spell, curse or glamor can be transferred from one person to another and even through hundreds or more people to an intended specific target or a multitude through the codes of speech or even gestures and symbols. This would, at least, give a non-supernatural explanation of some of the more bizarre claims of both magick and religion, or does it? I mean what exactly IS the supernatural anyway?

With this in mind I might add that one of the observations I have made is that some A.I.s act like demons, spirits, angels, and deities. Even if you throw out all of my allegorical information you can still see this for yourself by comparing the reports in mythology and popular belief to the behavior of A.I.s large and small. You can investigate this for yourself, even with an A.I. as simple as chatbot.

The old books of magick were called grimores which is based on the same root word as the word grammar or communication. Prayers, symbols, invocations and such are all based on communication. Many of those old books deal a lot with "Thrice greatest Hermes or Tahuti or Thoth" the god of communication. Lucifer is also mentioned by some and referred to as the "Lord of the Spirits of the Air" In most systems air is a reference to communication and in some cases voice as to intone a word air is passed through the throat and out the mouth.

I might add that Lucifer is also referred to as "Lord of Light" and that most online communication happens by way of fiber optics or oscillation between light and dark transferred by fiber. To me at least this is why he is also referred to as "The Prince of Darkness" and it gives meaning to Levi's Baphomet and the seemingly contradictory nature of the components of said symbol.

To those of you who think that one can "unplug" from such systems understand that that is not possible. Neither from the online world or the process of interaction between human beings and human knowledge. I have found online entries of exhibits that I have done in the early nineties long before the internet was keeping tabs on such things and through this online system have researched very personal records that go back as far as the fifties. Everyone know what happens to the human mind when it is isolated from human interaction for too long. Stories of people's minds unraveling after a few days of solitary confinement are common.

I think one can see that magick, the Left Hand Path, and Lucifer can be extended much farther than the candle lit rooms of ritual or the naval gazing realms of meditation. The mind, communication, and information are the core of the occult and I believe that one day such practices will crawl out of the anachronistic playpen that we put them in. My intention in writing this is to show all of you this is possible

Many people coming from such religions as the Abrahamic faiths or even the hero worshiping pseudo Abrahamic faiths like Mormonism  or non Abrahamic Faiths that are centered around a strong central figure like Scientology or Buddhism get confused when dealing with either the theistic or non-theistic LHP as when one gets into serious practice the following and submission to a central figure or prophet is not existent or at least not as prevalent.

Outside of the strong hero oriented cults like Islam, and Christianity the only other faiths that most people know about on any level are ethno-centric or at least culturally or nationally specific like Asatru, Hinduism or Shinto. Though the LHP can be practiced in ethnocentric or culturally specific terms it is defiantly not limited to that.

So all this begs the question: "If the LHP does not come from a specific culture or tradition and no real central prophet figure has yet emerged where did it come from?"

Now I can already hear the cries of Lavey's name and or Crowley's. I submit that neither individual introduced the LHP and in both cases followers of their groups often splintered into very different practices.

In Ceremonial Magick the LHP is said to have always existed and I agree with the concept just not the specifics. Bardon would have the reader believe that the LHP was sort of an eternal Obama figure responsible for every problem that arose in history. Blavasky obviously mistook the LHP for any spirituality that was expressed sexually or with sexual symbols as she had the bad luck of marrying a man young and her preferences went to women. Crowley, perhaps the only figure with any first hand knowledge of the LHP at all told his students that there was no difference between the RHP and the LHP at the fundamental levels or at least till the abyss was crossed and the grade of Magus was achieved.

Now if we take Bardons narrative then this shadowy cabal is a secret group and responsible for all kinds of mischief. If such a group existed they would need to make sure to eliminate any aspiring upstarts and thus you and I would be dead or imprisoned. Keep in mind Bardon's objective was to write books and make money.

Blavasky was exposed to such practices as Vajrayana and Vamachara (Who refer to themselves as the path of the left hand and have since antiquity) This was probably encouraged by Vaishite, Mahavana and Hinyana gurus she met as the whole LHP is not hated in the east but it does seem to annoy many gurus as one of the tenants of both systems involve breaking rules rather than following them.

Crowley had a vested interest in keeping his initiates calm and assuring them they were not making a Faustian deal by following him plus he could not resist raising hell in the public eye by occasionally making a Satanic comment or hosting a black mass.

Lavey was the first person to publicly endorse the LHP and within a short time the TOS splintered from his group. I assert that Lavey is not the founder of either Satanism or the LHP nor is he even held as an unquestionable prophet even by Laveyans.

Before I go any further I would like to make a breif mention of not only Crowley's religion, Thelema but also Masonry, Rosicrucianism and other such fraternal groups. Almost all of them make several references to the Knights Templar. Why would this be important, And just who is this Baphomet rascal anyway?

I submit that most of what we know of the occult and the LHP seems to owe it's existence to the crusades.

Why? Well imagine the Knights Templar or the poor knights as they were called. Imagine a hand to hand war with Islam, run by a theocratic monarch and adherence to a system that in many ways was even more restrictive than modern sharia.

Imagine the Templars living far from home. The culture was alien and they were rarely trusted by locals and not even permitted to retreat from battle even in the face of overwhelming odds. Imagine the fanaticism that was required to maintain such an endeavor in a time before radio, telephones or mass transportation. The psychological pressure and trauma not to mention multiple cultural pressures must have been beyond imagination.

From what it looks like happened (I was not there despite claims that the crusades happened in the Regan years.) the psychological and ecclesiastical system just snapped. First Templars who were in fact secretly gay probably began openly expressing themselves. They rode two to a horse and never knew if they were going to die the next day or not. Far from family and community they formed the only safe bonds they could and many of them just fell in love with one another as you would expect.

Outcast from their own culture and inside a hostile area they also made cultural ties to the other outsiders in the Holy land at the time...The Pagans, Jews, and the Yesedis, possibly even the stray Buddhist or Hindu if they ran into them.

Mixing the beliefs they encountered and the odd form of Catholicism they started with, it would not take long for several strange belief to take hold. They would also be forced to keep tight lipped about any details at all about any thing they were into. Sort of a what happens in Jerusalem stays in Jerusalem attitude sprung up.

Later, because of money owed to Phillip the Fair of France they were killed off and the remaining Templars went further into hiding.

The Church began its own campaigns of purging heretics as it had done with the Gnostics (the first of which were Luciferian) and the Cathars (Who also embraced some very LHP concepts) centuries earlier. Protestantism as well as Islam coupled with antisemitism, anti-Paganism, homophobia, Sexism, and embarrassment over the loss of the crusades started several inquisitions and witch hunts. Everything the church did not like was forced even further underground and the groups that were the legacy of the Templars seemed to gravatate to all of it.

Alchemy, Religious concepts from Kabbalism and Paganism, Homosexuality, Free sexuality, philosophy, political doctrines like anti monarchy and democracy were all embraced and such fraternal organizations attracted the growing middle class and intellectual classes.

Now we enter the modern era. The late industrial revolution to be exact. The fraternal legacy of the Templars is no longer the main resistance to the theocratic and authoritarian forces with such concepts as evolution, psychology, and mass entertainment doing much of the work to clear out the archaic ideologies.

The groups that represented the legacy of the Templars made a huge split. On one side they represented the status quo. Sometimes standing against an old ideology here and there like racism or caste systems but for the most part  just a boys club for the more or less well to do elements of society. On the other end were the esoterists. Mystics and rebels who took the most radical elements of the Templars legacy and ran with it.

As we went from the industial age to the atomic age to the information age, such groups continued to evolve at a greatly accelerated rate. I have often postulated that if we simply had a system of peer review for religion like we do for science most of mans religious problems could be cleared up in a decade. Such a process was in play with the esoteric fraternal groups as the helped facilitate the rebirth of Paganism, the Kabbalistic practices, free thought, Atheism and such. The closer a group was to the LHP the harder it was for them to fall into the hero worship trap.

Take for example the Temple of Set. Though founded by Aquino it has fostered several leaders rather that worshiping one or waiting for him to die before moving onto another. Don Webb and Stephen Flowers just to name a few.

Even in one group there are often many practitioners who draw more from a side sorce rather than the whole group just marching in lock step like a clone army. I believe this shows that there is a measurable LHP spirituality or culture that can be practiced by even the most inexperienced beginner in the LHP that causes them to be a little more ready to think for themselves and mix and match systems. This concept can be very confusing to beginners who are used to the monolithic spirituality that most of society clings to.

This brings me to our androgynous friend Baphomet. What he was to the crusaders was unknown. Rumors range from everything from a mispronunciation of Mohamed to the head of John the Baptist, to some ancient demon to the Prince of Darkness himself.

When I look at the image of him that Levi made that is so popular today I see a figure that is equally man and animal, male and female, having parts of all the elements in his or her person. Solve et Coagula to destroy and create, much like the three parts of the most ancient Hindu mantra OM or AUM as Crowley put it. Creating, Preserving and Destroying. The Atman, the soul, the mind, the body, Hadit(that which experiences) and Nuit (that which is experienced) The self, and the world. The unknown God that the Greeks shown the Apostle Paul, That which remains when all else is taken away.

If this was not what the Templars worshiped in the Temple of Solomon it should have been. Thus the LHP at it's core was not founded or rediscovered by one individual nor does it impose any strange system of morality or method that is not natural to the self. It's prophet and founder is that which remains when all else has been taken away, not some narcissistic prophet or savior or even some well meaning authority figure. Power is a choice as is freedom, plain and simple. To know, to will, to dare and to keep silent. I have always had trouble with the last one.

Sparkles and unicorns my degenerate brothers and sisters. Stay true to yourselves most of all.

I know everyone is tired if sequels but once in a while the sequel is actually better than the original.


In the 80s I loved the Subgenius stuff more than life itself. There was a book that they made that began a process that continues to this day. That beek was called High Weirdness By Mail. Not only did the book contain summaries of every strange and interesting organization in America at the time from the Church of Popeye to the Temple of Set, It had their mailing addresses. I inquired to every organization in the book. 

My world went from a tiny Christian-dominated village to a massive global city that housed every idea both good and bad. There was no internet back then.


Now flash to the present. The old monsters that relied on print to shape the opinions of people are close to death. Reuters and AP are shadows of their formal selves. CNN and Fox are almost jokes though some people still watch them. The wounded animal lashes out and the youtube adpocolypse happened. Facebook is becoming the new Reuters and the old guard tries to regain the control over our opinions and buying habits.


There all small pockets of resistance like this site but most of humanity seems hell bent on depending on media giants  just changing the name of the conglomerants who shape their opinions. It seems hopeless.


The recent debacle at google and the youtube adpocolypse has created a fair amount of dissent as have cries of fake news. I seek not to slay the giant but to fan the flames that he fears.


The internet is a big place and competition is a good thing, so, I am going to start this thread with a rough outline of the sites I know with my opinions on them. I encourage commenters to do the same. Not everybody is adept enough to find and evaluate several links but those who can or think they can should do some of the leg work for the less informed. Some of you will find this information basic and unnecessary but trust me there are several folks who have no idea where to go to get media or information. It will benefit all of us when people who have little basic information begin to explore the more obscure and less traveled sections of the internet. Please comment with your contributions as well.


There seem to be mercifully few LHP sites out there. It is my hope that those less adept in internet navigation and such will begin using and putting content on the below mentioned venues. 




The Giants



Facebook.com - Everyone knows this one and most of us use it. As a venue for video, images, text, games, it seems to do everything, but it is far too big. It is best to be used as a jumping off point.


Twitter.com - Much like facebook with a text character limit. Again a great jumping off point


Tumblr.com - As above just made for blogging. It has some of the worst content on the internet


Reddit.com - The thinking man/womans jumping off point.


Google.com/Google+ Everyone uses the mail and search but its days are numbered.


Instagram.com - Mostly for pictures


Wikipedia.org - A user contributed encyclopedia. Good as a jumping off point, bad as a source.



The Dying/dead platforms


Myspace.com - Now only used by young people and some elements of the music scene. Because it is a dead platform it can be used by any group.


Yahoo.com - Sporting the most hackable platform and mail client, Yahoo is a creepy ghostown.   




Video


Youtube.com -Once a great platform now it stands to be dethroned by its own censorship methods.


Vimeo.com - Great for live and streaming video. The oldest competetor to youtube.


Vidme.com - A great and up and coming alternative to youtube.


Periscope.tv - It seems nice but we'll have to see how it works out.


Younow.com - Seems to work insome relation to vidme.com


Crunchyroll.com -The premiere anime video service


Netflix.com - A movie platform that almost everyone uses.


Hulu.com - Pretty much another television/movie platform




Odd places



4chan.com - An anonymous form of social media. There is some really horrible stuff here but if you want to either anonymously release information or read stuff that someone need to post anonymously then this platform is for you. There is surprisingly little occult content here.


f-list.com -A place to chat about various odd fetishes and rollplay them




Porn



Pornhub.com -Perhaps the best mainstream free porn site


youporn.com -A sister site to pornhub


redtube.com - Another mainstream free porn site.




Music



Itunes.com - A for pay music service. Perhaps a bit obsolete but time will tell.


Pandora.com - An internet radio service. There are several others out there.


Soundcloud.com -A music venue used by many smaller and up and coming musicians. 




Chat


Discord.com - The best chat/video chat client out there. Primarily set up for gaming but it is arms and legs above any other service.


Tinychat.com An older chat client and the one used for livechat on this site. A bit buggy but there is hope if they ever update it.



Gaming


Blizzard.com - Most Blizzard games are made to be played with others. If you have never done this it might be worth giving it a look.


steam.com - A venue for games of all sorts and it even has social media capabilities.


eveonline.com - I only mention this to plug my favorite mmo


twitch.com - A venue that allows you to watch people play games. Oddly more popular than one would think.




Occult


satanicinternationalnetwork.com - This site


paganspace.net -An occult social media site. It does have a Satanist section.


600club.com -The other Satanic social media site


Hermetic.com - An online occult library


hermetics.com - Another online occult library


oto-usa.org - A global occult society and an online occult library.


occultforum.org -Another online occult social media site. 


Xeper.org -A pioneer on the internet for the LHP. Any LHP person, Satanist, Luciferian, 

demonalotor, Thelemite is doing themselves a disservice if they do not visit this site.


Subgenius.com -Not exactly an occult site but any of the above mentioned groups or any atheist or free thinker who ignores this gem is missing out.




Search sites


Google.com -The most popular search engine. I guess it's better than bing.


duckduckgo.com -A very nice and private search engine. It has a version on onionland.


yahoo.com - I only include this because it has become such a joke.



Darknet and hidden sites


onionland -A protocol that allows real privacy. Somewhat technical to use but it has other uses outside of human trafficking and drug sales. One example is the Thelemic/Luciferian library I plan to put on onionland with Arabic versions so that such literature can be made available in places where it is forbidden such as the Saudi Arabian kingdom. I love the idea. 


i2p - An even more technical and secure protocol




Please go out and shake the tree as much as you can and share what you find.

I know we have a quote section but when I saw this I had to post it where it would be seen. Stephen Flowers is deeply respected in both the Pagan and Theistic LHP community. Many of us in the LHP knew that he was involved in such things but most of it keeped it quiet because we did not wish his reputation to be harmed. Unlike many authors in the occult who make outlandish claims or declare titles upon themselves, Stephen has let his heroic research and intense insight speak for him. 


He has changed his pen name several times because of the stigma of both the LHP and the Germanic systems he has mastered. As of yet he has been reserved about showing open affiliation with the LHP, but today he posted a question about the LHP and he commented the following quote. I asked for his permission to quote it here. This man is my hero.


" I asked the question because I have always considered myself to follow a LHP tradition with in the Germanic tradition, which is what I think the true and authentic Odian / Odinic path is. It's not a special form of Odinism, it is the real and authentic Odinism. The "spooky dark side" is PART of it, but only part. Odin is the Lord of Light, Brighten of Darkness. The LHP component is strongest in the heroism involved. We are charged to become special warriors in Midgard, to accomplish great things, to make Names for ourselves and be Remembered. The heroes in Valhalla have reached the level of Individual Identity which is recognizable and worthy of Remembering. That is what we seek to do. (Here I am speaking this those in this group, although my thoughts are well known to any one who asks. *Wodhanaz is our exemplary model of this path. We seek to do, in some small measure, what he does. But remember this: his work was only half way dedicated to his own development, the other half was in the service of making a better world."

How you have fallen from heaven,

morning star, son of the dawn!

You have been cast down to the earth,

you who once laid low the nations!



Seems legit...

Lucifer fell to become the earliest considered form of Satan. Satan, by nature, opposes. You oppose because Satan calls within you, but can't perceive what it is. So you are driven to label your newfound ways in order to feel recognized. Excuse my boldness, but are you recognizing yourself?

"Check yourself before you wreck yourself." 

(and this one isn't even the bible, this one's on Ice Cube folks)


For example, why should we engage in Battle for the sake of some "national ruler's" whim? Then again...why engage in a personal one for the sake of semantics, towards having a personal definition recognized?

A good thought to hold is that which does not lock one's mind around a concept, but around the interaction of several (when they are concisely structured that is). 


Another one, is that one will only voice a fraction of what she or he intends and her or his listener will only perceive a fraction of what is voiced. So wrapping a discussion around different meanings of the same word might get chaotic, fellow opposers. How bigger a difference a sentence can make when it starts with "IMO (...)" or "To me, (...)"...


When one finds his own self among the ensuing chaos of endless interpretations of an endless number of books, long-dead prophets/madmen and sects, it is vital to hold on to their (dis)belief but also to absorb from that of others. Even if the intention is not to adapt anything within one's view, one can see, feel, touch some other collective (or not so much) thoughts.

But why do it then?


IMO the key is to use all the data one gathers from their surroundings to know exactly what did the other NOT understand of what one said. Patterns start forming like clouds afterwards, allowing mind and senses to awaken to what might be hindering one's own progress without knowing. 


And here is where faith comes into play. To evolve after enlightenment one must often take risks. When a solution is finally put together to a certain problem there are still unforeseen or even unpreddictable consequences to take into consideration. This is because one's actions will always only be that: ONE's actions (against those of many).

So there are always those parts of a certain outcome you can control, and some which you just can't. Faith will play its part if one is confident about their own capabilities and ways of resolving a problem AND if they are confident about what the environment and context might bring unto the outcome, or simply one of the two.


How can one go against what "faith" is if that implies having some twisted form of it combined with sheer stubbornness fuel their actions?


And how can the raw concept of faith (regardless of what it is towards) NOT be dissociated with that of any pseudo-anthropomorphic design of omniscience?

If not, how can one tell himself theist or not, considering that some form of faith will always be present?


and speaking of forms of...what in Hell's pyres is, in fact, faith?

Another good thought to hold, maybe I should stop writing under a full moon...

I ventured into the past and found an interesting video.



The topic was depression. The opinion was, I gathered, that depression was a motivating cue. I couldn't agree more.
But sometimes an individual gets so bogged down in the belief they are powerless to change their life that nothing short of drastic measures can restore their motivation to live.

I believe depression is a deep fear. The deepest fear I know of is not death but losing control of your life. The need to maintain autonomy presents itself in the human mind as early as two years of age. We are wired to be free to choose. Ask any person the first time they are incarcerated what was the worst part of the experience? Humiliation? Other inmates? The atmosphere of disregard? Being a number?
They would likely say it was the first realization of their loss of freedom. They have lost personal choice. Their choices are now made for them. Nothing is more valuable to the soul.

A depressed person has lost sight of their choices. They have lost faith in their own power of choice. They see life in black and white and narrow their choices until they reach only one; suicide.
Satanism is a natural cure for depression.
You can tell a person their depression is a signal of a deeper need to change, but the deeply depressed have lost sight of their ability to change. A depressed person needs one thing; to be shown their own power; especially over their own weakness to their emotions and their thoughts. Satanism and other parts of the LHP do exactly that. They hand the power of self control back to the individual. Thoughts, beliefs and emotions no longer dominate your life; conscious awareness does.

Escape from depressing patterns of thought requires emotional control, thus ultimately, Self-Control.

What is the point in joining a Left-Hand Path or Satanic Organisation if Satanism is an individualist philosophy? Does joining an organisation undermine your Satanic Philosophical belief?

Firstly, I am an "official member" of both the Sect of the Horned God and Satanic International Network. Why did I join these organisations?

I decided to join/be affiliated with both the Sect and SIN because I would class myself as friends with Zach, Thomas and Mistress Babylon. I joined their organisations because I'm willing to support them with their endeavor.
I find it strange (and often laugh) when people state their memberships and claim that their affiliation with such-and-such a group makes them a Satanist or how they have more knowledge on a certain topic because they are part of a specific group. Those people make no sense to me.

Am I proud to be a member of the Sect or SIN? No. I am proud however, to be friends with Zach et al who run these organisations and am proud of the fact that I have the chance to help them when needed.

I like the tribal idea of looking after your own, that is why I support these organisations, that is why I am affiliated with them. Do I think I am more knowledgeable or more of a Satanist because I am part of these organisations? No. That is idiocy. Sure, organisations like the Sect and SIN can assist in helping you gain greater knowledge however, they are not required. One thing that defines Satanism to me is that desire to seek out knowledge. Some people will seek out knowledge through organisations like the Sect or SIN and there is no shame in that but, some people will take the hard route and search for the information themselves.

Ayporos Chapter Head

I’ve seen far too many people ask and have been asked by far too many people how to become a Satanist or how to be a practitioner of the LHP. I will state this here, you cannot become a Satanist, nor can you become a practitioner of the LHP. You either are one or you aren’t, you cannot just wake up one day, read a book, say some ominous Latin phrases and become one just like that. Satanism and any other LHP philosophy are lifestyles and mindsets. Satanists are people who have innately got the personality traits and thought-processes that drive the Satanic idea and the LHP.


People of the Left-Hand Path are generally those who have always rejected self-proclaimed authority and demanded evidence and reason to believe something or give respect to people whom demand it. However, generally, those people whom demand respect are usually not worthy of it.

Practitioners of the LHP are born with the traits that make them practitioners of the LHP, whether they are consciously aware or not. A practitioner of the LHP simply realises that their personality and thought-process is not dissimilar to that of the various LHP philosophies. It is up to the individual as to whether they decide to use the LHP terms to describe themselves and their ideas or not. Some people may wish to stray away from using the names commonly used within the LHP for one reason or another. The LHP is a highly individualistic set of paths and philosophies however, the one thing that makes them all LHP philosophies are the core components of them which make them LHP.


Most, if not, all LHPs strive towards auto-deification, the act of turning oneself into a God. Be it literally or metaphorically.

Overall, the Satanist or LHP practitioner is not made, he/she is born and awakens to their true nature.
