Sorry you went through that and yea, call the police. You never know.

I started a new job. I believe in God, and thought that he led me to this job. It seemed to happen effortlessly, and I prayed about it. But, I'm not happy lately in this job. I know no job is perfect, but I feel like for the past few weeks, I've been working as hard as I can, but with little return. (I'm in marketing)

So, I pray for strength, and I ask God...what should I do? While I know he cares (this is my belief) I feel like he doesn't decide for us what we should do next, when faced with adversity.

How do you process adversity, in your belief system? How do you know you're doing the right thing or on the right course, when you make decisions?

Just wondering.


Probably the hardest thing in being spiritual is eventually leading to the understanding that when you are suffering you needed to. :D

Though my deity is different than yours much later on I learned that he was suffering with me, like a father watching over a child would empathize with their struggles. Whatever the current challenges are, they are important to make you into what you are growing to be. How we have to learn these lessons is different for us all, but sometimes there is no easy way. If your connection with God is solid, then you'd be aware of that... I'm just mentioning it in case you are more "belief-y" than in communication. I don't mean that in a judgmental way, nonetheless, it's we all process these things differently and our interface to the divine is shaped to suit our nature.

With Satanism, the difference is only that we know we are responsible for our actions and also the agent of the solution. We hope that Satan would lead us to the answers, but sometimes we're left to tough it out to make us stronger. I'm not mad with Satan when it doesn't work out as with a little bit of thought I can see where better choices could have been made. If the choice was taken away where'd be the fun in life anyway? :D Anyway, such trials are simply tests with the goal of becoming a spiritual adult, if you will, and the higher powers are teaching you how to fly; you can't be in the nest forever, metaphorically.

None of us truly knows if we are the right course, but there is nothing gained by doubting oneself. Make the best decisions you can and if you regret it later simply vow to never repeat it. That's all you can do anyway. Take the lesson, warts and all, and do something useful with it.

When do you become so wise? :)

I hadn’t thought of it like this, thank you.

I think there are too many threads made by the same people every day. And those people aren’t interested in discussion, they just want attention.

Other stuff going down on RF:

Fake accounts, probably by admins starting threads. Not even sure who is real there anymore except for the cool people I know from here. :D They're creating accounts to boost sub appearances even though everything I know points to mass exodus. Post counts, replies, and new members are so low it's barely a thing. You'll normally find yourself arguing with the five same retards.

Admins and friends of admins chilling in skype or badchat and ganging up on people. When some of us were banned from badchat we had eyes in their channels letting us know what was going on. Pretty sure the banning had nothing to do with what we did, but more what they planned to do. They moved this mostly to Skype later on so it was out of band on the bc. I'm aware of it happening to myself and others. Just letting you know what types of people you're dealing with.
lol I was in bad chat recently :D

That site has its positives. But I remember when it was a lot more fun and the conversations/threads were active and productive.

I don’t go on there much. But I like the mods. Their job is hard.  :\

General LHP Discussion / Re: An observation of people who follow the LHP
« on: August 24, 2018, 01:26:39 am »
You're getting the LHP entirely...

The others are simply running in fear from everything including themselves. They participate in a religion because of a fear of eternal damnation, do not question the rules for that same reason, and then feel guilty when their basic human nature pulls them away. No one is happy living in fear or guilt... If you find a way to coexist in those beliefs without taking those negative elements, then you're probably heading the right direction. Some of us are just "dark" in nature and not merely rebelling like some teenage edge lord. (Hey, it was just a phase! :D)

But, define "God"... I hate to ask, but it's such a nebulous word that unless you're taking about a specific belief system it can mean a lot of things. Just trying to understand you here really... I mean, you explain what you feel "God" would want... I'm just picking your brain for a conversation, ignore if it's too personal or whatever.

Hmm, God to me comes from probably my monotheist roots, if I'm honest. But, that's just me. After separating from religion and just following my heart, my mind...where it leads me...I feel personally like one God exists, and he cares about us. He is all powerful. But, this isn't to say I would dismiss anyone's views on what they feel...I share my faith, and I think that where I'm at now, I have a peace about it all.

But, I hear you. It's subjective what we all believe.

General LHP Discussion / An observation of people who follow the LHP
« on: August 23, 2018, 01:55:30 am »
You're more rational than other religious folk. lol Seriously, I've been around religious people all of my life...my parents are Catholic (they're not rational, no offense to Catholics),  and a variety of others, and it would seem that those who follow the LHP seem grounded. Seem...to understand themselves.

Seem to accept their own darkness, and not fight against it, but embrace it. For in it, we find ourselves...we find the light. We are all battling something, and in many religions, there is this idea that we should just give it all to God. While I believe that, I believe that God wants me to sort things out, he wants me to forgive others, forgive myself, and come to him yes, but understand thy self.

I just wanted to share this. Of course, there are exceptions. But, just as a general observation, especially on this site, y'all aren't afraid of being your true selves, darkness and all.
