Other Religions / The Serer religion
« on: November 10, 2017, 05:20:40 am »
So over time, an idea (well three really) has been gnawing at me: that I wasn't entirely Christian to begin with; that I was inevitably going to ascribe to LHP practices; and that one day, I will have ascertained the original practices of my ancestors that have since been obfuscated by Christian and Muslim missionaries.

Two of the three has already come to pass. Yet the third remains. But I think I am getting closer. As of late, I read about the Serer religion here:

https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Portal:Serer_religion

Though I am not from Senegal (from Ghana instead), this link comes a bit closer to the region of interest to me - sub-Saharan and West Africa. I just need focus in one more time to the Ashanti prior to its demise from British imperialism. But I was struck by some of the parallels I found with Setian theory:

The use of a star to represent the universe.

No heaven or hell

A supreme god Roog without image or place of worship (nor do they contact it directly)

Spirits, ancestors or pangools, which interestingly were represented as serpents.

No caste system, until it was introduced by foreigners.


EDIT: There appears to have been a Lamanic class that was quite wealthy and powerful. And of course, you can't forget the priests and priestesses who were part of the secret order of the Saltigue.

Other Religions / The Tao
« on: October 26, 2017, 06:51:53 pm »
I revisited the Tao te Ching and the Inner Teachings of Chuangzu the other day. I was reading from the Thomas Cleary translation. Lately, I am starting to prefer the format of aphorisms and appreciate how it involves the reader to unpack its meaning. This is much like the Tao, although no one can profess outright to have penetrated its mysteries entirely. What do you guys make of the Tao? I'll leave two excerpts below - one from the Tao te Ching and another from the Inner Teachings of Chuangzu:


11. Thirty Spokes

Thirty spokes join at the hub:
Their use for the cart
Is where they are not.
When the potter's wheel makes a pot,
The use of the pot
Is precisely where there is nothing.
When you open doors and windows for a room,
It is where there is nothing
That they are useful to the room.
Therefore being is for benefit,
Nonbeing is for usefulness.


2. On Equalizing Things

... Once Chuang Chou dreamed he was a butterfly. He was happy as a butterfly, enjoying himself and going where he wanted. He did not know he was Chou. Suddenly, he awoke, whereupon he was startled to find he was Chou. He didn't know whether Chou had dreamed he was a butterfly, or if a butterfly were dreaming it was Chou. But as Chou and the butterfly, there must be a distinction. This is called the transformation of beings.

Current Events / Styxhexenhammer666

I started watching a certain Youtuber named Styxhexenhammer666 who vlogs about current events. And he has an interesting background in the occult, often writing on such topics. He has 100+ videos on the occult. Ex-Satanist who has gone off on his own path. This is him speaking of Satanism as a path of liberation:

Journals / pi_ramesses - A Setian Journal

Hello all,

There is something that I would like to draw your attention to. I stumbled upon it via Tumblr while perusing the Internet. The link is:
http://setemheb.tumblr.com

Looking back, I suppose it was in virtue of such perusals that I am currently writing a paper to submit to the O.S. I recall gleaning through Reddit on topics such as Platonism and Setianism, which brought me here. For this I am grateful. Since then, I have come across a number of resources of which I had not heard mostly originating from this forum. As a commemoration, I am currently considering to supplement or augment my diary via the use of a personal blog. While I could start said blog at another domain, my first vehicle of choice to set this up is clearly this forum. I am looking forward to the future and a flourishing and a refining of the Self.

Xeper and Remanifest!

General LHP Discussion / Help with Add Bookmark Button

Silly question but what does the"Add Bookmark" button look like? At times I want to mention someone but I find that I don't know how. I recall Onyx (another missed bookmark opportunity) announced it and thought that maybe when I logged back in I will be able to do it.

An attached screenshot would be greatly appreciated.
