Re: Ritual Advice/Workings for Novices

I think the big idea in satanic philosophy is to get rid of the idea of "worshiper" that is the idea of obedience and blind faith.

Re: Goetia

Contact, that is the easy part. Now, depending on how you mesh / what you ask of them, they may or may not want to honor your request, and depending upon what/who you ask, it can even backfire. I highly recommend becoming skilled with divination before diving into the goetia.

Re: Is anyone achieving "practical" results from divination?

I used to worry about fate and stuff like that. Now I no longer worry about it, or that I won't be able to influence loved ones, hated ones or just others around me. That is as a result of a certain initiation.

Re: Demons and the Solomon Circle

Demons don't care if you want to use a circle or not. It isn't disrespectful or anything and I would highly recommend it for beginners.

Is Thelema a religion?

When I first got interested in Thelema, I thought of it as a religion. I was hoping to replace Christianity with it. Now that I am doing my true will, I don't care. I still use some rituals from Thelema from time to time and I still apply some of the philosophy, but I don't really care about it anym...

Re: Where did everyone go?

Also, face book is terrible for long involved multi-paragraph posts like you see on forums. I feel like faceb...

Re: Dark Night of the Soul

Studying the tarot is good, not because, oh the tarot, but because the tarot is one very effective means of divination, part of the whole "should I cast this spell or should I work with this entity" type questions that will help you out when making decisions. Also if you have mixed feelings about so...

Re: Mainstream occult ideas that you consider really pernicious?

1. I think too much time is spent on Kabalah (like everyone else here said.) Trying to stuff all systems into some Jewish chart is stupid. Also it makes it seem like there is some kind of roadmap and progress where there really isn't, and it can make you feel like you are getting somewhere when you ...

Re: A re-entry into art

Ethnogens aren't necessary if you get good with magick. The trick is to keep control and not feel like you are losing your mind. Anyway, IMHO, the purpose of magick is to cause change in accordance with the will, not the mere experience of things like "hearing voices and seeing things that aren't th...

Re: Still active? New student looking to learn.

I've been studying wicca, mainly because that was the first path i found. It also seems to be kind of up my alley since I spend allot of time in the woods alone. But I don't really know anything about the other traditions to say I'm totally devoted to one over another. Mostly I'm just trying to bet...

Re: Pope Francis wants to change the Lords prayer

I haven't been keeping abreast with the Catholic changes. (other than the obvious changes due to the new virus) but I'm curious what he wanted to change the prayer to. I know the old "I am not worthy to receive you." was changed to "I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof. It made it go ...

Re: Dark Night of the Soul

I experienced the dark night of the soul. It was awful. I felt really cut off from god. Now some spiritual traditions talk about dryness, when certain prayers or incantations no longer work anymore, and you should keep plowing through them, and suposively on the other side will be enlightenment.

Re: The biggest cause of suffering today

Buddha said that desire was the cause of suffering, I'm going to invert that statement. The LACK of desire is the cause of suffering. That is a good statement. It explains why sometimes rich people are so miserable (like Buddha was) and also why people who just give up on life seem so miserable, bec...

Re: Is Left Hand Path forums being paid off?

That is why it is good to be a member of multiple communities. That way, if one shuts down, you can continue the worthwhile conversations somewhere else. Anyway, at this point here in 2020, I think shutting down LHP forums would be pointless, because more would just spring up somewhere else. In fact...

JHVH is an angel of Satan.

The idea that JHVH is an angel of Satan, does not seem to work for me in practice. If I do the JHVH thing in ritual, I feel like crap, if I use the name Satan, I feel good. Therefore they are not the same energy.

I don't really think you need to join a group to find a curiculum. I guess if I was you (that I am not) I would go a head and buy one of those spiritual development books and do all the exercises in order just like they say.
