Setian Philosophy / Re: Invocation of Set
« on: September 24, 2020, 01:17:26 pm »
Hi I read all of the post here and I love the transparency, im newbie and im in need help of set how can I invoce set. I would appreciate a guidance on how to talk to him.

Thanks

I would suggest researching correspondences, especially in modern LHP stuff. The old stories help with understanding the form of Set, and contemporary practice builds a personal connection to him. First and foremost, it helps to find a focused discipline, such as meditation, automatic drawing, etc. The imagery requires a mild meditative focus.

Agreed. TST's 7 tenets inform morality enough for me to consider it a standalone religion, but there isn't as much of a focus on individual (or spiritual) development. Most actions appear aeonic in nature.

LHP traditions utilize the strength of the individual to strengthen tradition. TST uses the strength of its shared ideology. As time has gone on I've come to really appreciate the separation of my magic from my religious philosophies, and that very seperation is encouraged by the community.

Indeed, many rituals violate what we call logic by exploiting edge cases of the rules of what we think makes sense. TST's rituals, on the other hand, violate pollitical illogic by exploiting edge cases of rule sets that most (especially here) would conclude do not make sense to begin with.

I never really got into the TST movement, but your perspective here sharpens the focus in terms of how it might be considered "magical". Large-scale attempts at LBM seem problematic to me, but I'm not the "boss of the applesauce".

Nevertheless, there is only one abortion clinic left I'm aware of (nearby where I live) in the entire state. There is a lot of religious influence here these days. TST sells a lot of of merchandise to support their causes, but so do Christians.

These are interesting times.

I can tell you honestly and truly it's a case of a lot of big ass legal bills.

And though those bills indicate a lost battle, a lot of new projects have been released from the various campaigns.

The ones I'm in are doing a lot now. And things are starting to feel wayy more autonomous and free of unvetted checks and balances.

I've also noticed TST is real shit producing mature and knowledgeable leaders. It was worrying earlier on but it feels like there is a "graduation" of people taking shit seriously, acting like professionals, and undertaking MASSIVE amounts of...I don't know. Learning. It's a crucible. But yeah, when someone becomes more visible you can see them growing into a more caring and well spoken adult.

I think a big part of it is the volunteer work. Modern society doesn't shit on volunteer work, but it doesn't really emphasize it. And advocacy does a lot for self confidence and public speaking.

Its rebellion,  AH! THE DEVIL!

That might be certainly part of it, they are more grounded in logic.

Currently I'm reading Infernal Geometry (stay tuned for a lengthy post on it soon) and for most of the rituals discussed in there I'm at a loss in how they could have the supposed effect even after reading the detailed explanations (which might just me lacking the relevant experience but still), yet with the one linked here it's obvious how and why it's supposed to work.

I'll keep an eye out, can't wait to chat about it!

The rituals by TST and related groups tend to be much easier to understand for me and to intuit how and why they would work than the average ritual I encounter in other contexts.

The one linked is no exception.

It might be because they are based on such a simple framework of beliefs that one doesn't first need to initiate into anything really, but I don't think it's just that.

Its primarily a legal protection.

But the ritualization of expressing individual autonomy against the will of the state is very religious.

Ya I just noticed that too on the first page, the link goes to a defunct site. IIRC a member who left operated that arm right?

Yes, it has been down for a little while.  Do you need the pdf?

I've escaped dad duty long enough to actually read your introduction! It's good to have you.

My experiences started in horrible ways when I was younger, and I had a very...Jung-esk episode of vivid, focused, and occult dreams around 18. At that time I started reading various research on parasomnia as well as "zen mind: beginners mind." Dropped my Christian-esk wiccan practice for two years of heavy eastern study and practice.

It was after that that I began to experiment with psychedelics at 22, first with mushrooms. At 25 I broke through on DMT and returned to a more serious study of ceremonial magic and alchemy,  then satanism. I've studied a lot of different works now,  and what I've figured is that there are no lines. You can be full LHP and only study eastern mysticism, as long as you don't hold moral convictions about identifying as such. The left hand path is freedom, RHP is following strict guidelines to keep what works working. The big difference is that most folks identifying as LHP study both schools without losing about sleep over being evil.

I had tried acid at like.....14? I had a horrible time. Returning to it at 26 was incredible. Dion Fortune defined magic as, "The science and art of causing changes in consciousness to occur in conformity with Will," and I can tell you, nowadays psychedelics make me become magic. Taking this time to categorize and control your thinking pays big,  unbelievable, and exhilarating merits if you return to the psychedelics much later. I read a couple of shamanistic books while researching the lesser work that helped a lot too. If I was to isolate what helped it was meditation, plant alchemy, and a little odinism found in setianism. The confidence and understanding,  the mindfulness,  it eliminates fear. Dmt was like a complete OBE, I felt myself accept death and my soul like squeezed through my nose. It felt like being crushed to the size of a point. I'm not sure if I'd call the sensations on acid that after studying for a few years vs before, it was like a ritual trance state that lasted 13 hours.  Clear,  in control,  perceptive, intuitive,  imaginative, and full of wonder. I'm glad I gave it another go.

Sorry if I rambled, I just find it so interesting that we're on similar paths but in a mixed up order!  It really was good to meet you!
