Can you expand on this subject, I'm a little lost.

I'm not directing this at anyone in particular, but let's please tone things down a notch. There is a private conversations system if you wish to continue the bickering there. Thank you.

Did you have that custom-made? I agree the quality could be better but it's unique. Perhaps a professional jeweler could clean it up a bit?

I assume the Hoover Dam thing is a joke, but reminds me of the conspiracy theory that the Large Hadron Collider creates a gateway to hell that Satan can enter though, or some bullshit. And of course the Illuminati is to blame, lol.

Since the LHP is the path of most resistance rather than least resistance, it's never an easy one. It can be overwhelming, and physical issues only make it a rougher ride when they occur because we want to do so much more than dealing with mundane reality.

But you know your stuff @Xepera maSet, not an amateur or novice. I don't think it's about the path, it's just that life throws a lot of wrenches into our "evil plans", and puts a lot of obstacles in our way.

In one of his books, Don Webb talks about maintaining a sense of humor. I know you have one, and I also know that it can defuse negative emotions, which are some of the biggest hurdles one may encounter. It's like the analogy I use all the time of finding that one domino to knock over that sets off a series of events, which is my approach to Black Magic whether in terms of LBM or GBM.

This post is not intended to be advice, more from personal experience. Any physical problems I've had are minor by comparison, but I've had plenty (times 1000) of others. Nevertheless, what doesn't kill you only makes you stronger, and I don't see you as weak or inadequate at all. Quite the opposite, I've learned a lot from your efforts as have many others.

Many "Satanists" (including myself) have used the term Satan in a rather ill-defined way. Although rare, I remember seeing different perspectives when it comes to Set also versus M.A.'s apprehension of what it represents, so the situation there isn't that much different.

"Atheistic Satanism" is pretty easy, as it's just symbolic. "Theistic Satanism" is a lot more complicated, and I'm in agreement that other deities will answer to the name of Satan: When I was younger I did an invocation of Satan, but now understand the intense presence I experienced to be Set, especially because of the aggressiveness in which I pursued my interests thereafter.

I'm not sure what the solution is, except to try to be clear in explaining one's use of certain terminology, especially in public or until you get to know the person you are in communication with better.

I like the "Activities for Children" at the top and 1970's aesthetic. And kids should summon demons early and often, gotta start 'em young.

I just checked that page with my phone and though it took awhile to get the videos to appear, it's okay. Can you tell me the browser/version? (In a PM if you prefer.) If it's Android maybe I can install it on my phone and see what's up. Could also be some network timeout thing as you mentioned, unsure. Thanks!

Is it the entire page or just the videos? YouTube occasionally lags on the embedded videos and sometimes they don't even show up for awhile. But that's on their end not ours. I haven't had any issues myself lately, but I'll try to keep an eye on it. Please let me know if it continues to be a problem, thank you.

Edit: Also, the server only allows so much processor time and will kill scripts if they redline. Not sure if that's the problem, but it could happen if there is too much activity at once.

I think I've personally find evidence that Greater Black Magick works outside of the psyche (or your psyche has direct influence on the physical world that can be observed

Yeah, brings to mind the concept of "entrainment" which I think M.A. mentions in one of his books. The analogy being something like how iron filings line up with the greater magnetic field. I'll try to find it, but the point being that I think "magnetizing" yourself through workings can have that effect, it's not all psychological.

LBM requires the ability to remove oneself from the situation a bit in order to see the larger view, and find the one thing to say or do to spin things the way you want. It should be done very subtly and with forethought in my opinion, little things here and there, etc.

Whether we're talking about LBM or GBM it's about finding that one domino to knock over to set things into motion, either in your own psyche (GBM) or in the everyday world (LBM). In either case subtly is the key.

Sorry if I derailed, just stuff that came to mind. ;)

I think pi_rameses is right. I'll add that the Black Magician always remains in charge. Through experimentation comes an understanding of what works, as long as you remain in control of the whole business and don't let it control you.

But I think I understand what you mean. These days I borrow from things I like and create my own methods and aesthetics, perhaps you are going that direction also?

Also, I wouldn't underestimate the power of LBM, it's not about being a jerk and sometimes can even benefit others as well as yourself. It is a powerful form of magic in terms of imposing your will, and it can be done ethically. Well kinda.

I went off on a bit of a tangent, but yeah there is a whole lot of dogma in the LHP scene. Might as well go to church next Sunday. Fuck all that bullshit, I'm going to sound like a broken record once again and put it in a bold font:

Individualistic religion should be as such.

There is no need to go into details, it was your own ritual. And if you've already done it, I see no reason to repeat it. It can take time for a new state of being to crystallize - be prideful of anything you've accomplished either in terms of workings or everyday life in the meantime. Seems to me like some emotional stuff got stirred up, which can happen sometimes.

Here's what's happening I think. Playlists won't embed in the forum, there has to be a link to the actual video (and you don't need [url] tags for that). Likewise images have to be a direct link to an actual jpg or png etc, it doesn't understand something like an imgur page. Hope that helps.
