Re: The influences of various religions on Satanism I think some of us, and me in particular, are aware of the similarities. I think a number of sects are very similar and my own beliefs as a system developed until someone pointed out I had kind of reinvented the basic idea of Trika (Kashmir shaivism)


Only thing I can really note in what you said, devil comes from latin to mean "slanderer". I know LaVey mentioned devil as coming from "devi" but it's not true, it's just more so of a coincidence.


I look forward to your posts. I might have more to say on it later, but was just checking the forums once more before going to bed and so quite mentally tired.


Also I was curious if you are willing, who invited you. There are a few Hindu and Buddhist minded members here and so I'm more so just curious :)


In any case, Hail Satan and om namah shivaya :)

Re: Reality.. This post hits home for me. In an environment in which we seem to be in a state of auto-hypnosis, it helps to awaken at critical times and make correct decisions.

Re: Reality..
into yourself and ask the questions which only you have the answers to. Ask yourself about what defines your purpose and are you really able to work according to that purpose. Do you have the means and resources to reach the end goal you desire?


I think, this is at the core of it. I've often seen many people even Satanists, build up an illusion of themselves because the reality of the situation is too hard to face. Sometimes it's their fault, other times not.


It can be hard particularly for LHP types to accept that a lot in life is out of their control. I can't stop a storm and neither can anyone else here. There are certain forces of nature and psychological phenomena that we just are not able to do much about as limited beings. That isn't to say we shouldn't do something; we can't stop a storm but we can prepare for it and have a plan (emergency supplies, shelter ect), same with social situations or sudden changes in the economy ect.


I've been guilty of illusion in the past, and I think most people particularly LHP would say the same if they are honest about it. People often don't realize that before the spiritual can (optimally) be obtained we need to first secure our emotional and physical needs. It's perhaps ironic that we can loose sight of this, given the focus of the LHP on the physical and emotional, the "baser" aspects. Perhaps that is due to a lack of understanding or something else. In any case, you need basic maintenance before the plane is safe to fly, so to speak.
