Other Religions / From indoctrination to the path to freedom
« on: October 03, 2018, 04:10:53 pm »
I have a friend who has been raised as a JW his entire life.  I was completely ignorant to their actual beliefs until just recently when we had a long discussion about it.  At one point I had asked him how it felt to follow his religion yet also entertain certain things that it forbids, and he replied that he understood the consequences and fully accepted them.  At the time it made no sense to me, because I didn't know what those consequences actually were.  In our recent discussion I was actually talking quite a bit about some things I read in the Symbolism of the Serpent thread on this forum, and I asked him if he believed that the Christian interpretation was a scare tactic, to which he replied 'No, but I do believe hell is a scare tactic'.  This is when I found out that JW do not believe in hell.  It brought more light to what he had said before, and he confirmed that he believes if he does not follow his religion to the tee, when he dies his soul will simply disappear, and those were the consequences that he had accepted. 

I went on to talk about the Left Hand Path and various parts of Luciferian philosophy, specifically the remaking of the self into a god through various means.  He seemed incredibly interested, but kept telling me that everything he had ever been taught was practically screaming at him in his head the entire time.   He's a very open minded person and I think the discussion went pretty well all things considered.

Is it likely that someone can overcome such indoctrination and seek true knowledge?  Most people seem blissfully ignorant and content in their bubble even if they are aware that there's a whole storm of liberation raging outside of it.

EDIT:
Changed the topic title to something a bit more fitting since the general idea of the thread is a bit more open ended than just one particular set of beliefs.

Music / Moderately cheezy 'occult' musicians
« on: September 12, 2018, 07:19:47 pm »
I was curious how people who actively practice magick and follow the LHP actually feel about artists like Ghostemane and Suicide Boys.  When I first came across Ghostemane I really liked his first album, Blackmage (and not big on much after that), but I never cared much for Suicide Boys.  I've made a few friends recently who are really into both, but none of them are actually into magick.
I'm fairly sure that the references in the music is mostly just a gimick, and I wanted to know how others felt about it.  He references painting a circle around his feet and sacrificing women inside of pentagrams, etc...so it's kind of like he's just cramming in as many ridiculous stereotypes as possible to boost his 'spooky' image.
These artists are blowing up lately though and it's hard to go anywhere without bumping into someone who asks me if I've heard of them.  I've seen threads on reddit about Ghostemane's samples and people pointing others who don't know much about the topic towards occult and magick readings, so maybe it's kind of a good thing?  At the same time it just feels like commodification and packaging, like with Marilyn Manson or Slayer, but under the banner of rap instead.

Lounge / Intro

Seems pretty standard to post an introduction here, so I'll go ahead. 
I'm Devon.  I've been very interested in the Left Hand Path for quite a while.  I would not consider myself as someone who practices, as I've never intentionally carried out any magick per say.   I'm working to increase my knowledge and I hope to read and take part in various discussions to help grow my understanding and to further refine myself.  Thank you for your time, and I hope to be posting/reading quite often.
