Culture is kind of like a blanket. From region to region, depending on the influence of a variety of factors including religion, family values, governmental policy, media influence(which are all interwoven) the blanket will differ in feel and fabric, yet wherever you go, it is there.


That blanket is what I like to call the nomos, or the sum total of the influence and coverage of that 'blanket' in any given region. Regardless of what individual views one might hold, or what psychological predisposition one might hold, both are woven into the nomos though ones proximity to it, and the fact that it can cover you to the extent that you can not see past it or though it. This blanket of nomos becomes a blanket of what is right/what is good, as the memetic nature of such nomian fabric is always self affirming. This is why we see things such as right and wrong, good and bad, placed into objective hardspots rather than being recognised as the arbitrary relatives they are.


The LHP, as I see it, holds a unique spot in this order, a tricky spot. If the nature of the LHP, as per the nastika/aghori is to break this nomian fabric that provides the soil for this self affirming dualism, how then do we interact with each other, which creates 'nomos' as byproduct? When too much of this 'nomos', these value hardpoints(think LaVey) seep into the very toolset for destroying these things, to what point can we honestly define what we are doing, categorically, as LHP?


From where I sit this has become pandemic. What is memetically recognised as Satanism has slowly subsumed as more and more nomian valuations have seeped in. We have those that would style themselves as 'Satanic' leaders offering us excuses en mass as to why we should obey, how we can 'use satanism' to better fit in to the prefabricated world set before us. We have 'Satanic spokesmen' telling us how rational self interest, which can be properly understood as a one size fits all excuse for inaction, is the highest 'Satanic value'. We have 'Satanic organizations' claiming laudability based on paying their taxes and obeying the prefabricated rules for allowing their existence. 


We have a whole generation of would-be's that are completely conflict averse, both unwilling and unable to evaluate their own positions critically because of some sense of entitlement to their views, as the stamp of egalitarianism leaves it's mark.


So what happens when the tool for breaking chains is itself replaced by a chain?


Are you a 'nomian Satanist'? Do you sit back and let the dead mouth of LaVey or his living, yet hollow echos speak for you?  Or do you challenge yourself, put yourself at odds with it, put yourself in danger from it, so that you might gain your own voice?

On the point of Satanic worship: What is worship besides praise, attention and siding with that item. Idea or person?



Under the base idea of worship, people worship football teams, the human body at strip clubs, politicians and outspoken people. Some would argue that worship has to follow a religious act but what does class as religious? To me a religious thing is any action, thought or processes that continues over a large amount of time without being questioned as to their ongoing use or even if they are still valid.



Some worship large bank accounts, Armani suits, Prada fashions and are more of a follower when it comes to fashion and stereotypes than many theistic values shown. Some hold so tight to a single action or value it becomes their social, sanity or status main stay. Over time the person holding onto that main stay will see many things pass by but in the attempt to hold onto the original main stay they will miss those things passing that may be of more use.



Yes it is human and natural to miss those things and ideas they have been left behind and some of those might have a value worth revisiting later on but nothing (in my mind at least) is worth holding onto just for the idea of holding onto something.

 This a little something I wrote as a senior in high school. My English lit teacher thought it was worth publishing in the annual poetry/short story book the "mirror."

 

 For your reading enjoyment :)

 

                                        The Corner

 

 

 I have been sitting in this corner for at least 3 days, according to the window at my right. I am cold, but do not dare leave to get a coat. I am hungry, but do not go to get my food, for if I do, I shall surly die! Murdered would be a better way to put it!

 

  I can not see my killer, but I know He is there, I can feel Him all around me, coaxing me out of the corner. I won't go, I will not leave this corner where I know I will live. He plays tricks on me and knocks at the door, but I am to smart for him, He calls my name from outside,  but I will not go to him. I shall stay in this corner until I am sure He is gone and only then shall I leave this corner and live an ordinary life. My killer is strange, He leaves me food but I do not go and get it, for that is what He wants me to do.

 

  Today I feel uneasy, I think someone is at the door, Oh no, the door is opening! My killer is there, I see him, Black of hair and snow white skin, His green eyes stare at me as He approaches. I stand and start to run, He knocks me down to the matted floor and injects me with poisonous fluid from his needle-like fingernail. He gets up and leaves, but I am still alive, I stand, but my legs are wobbly from His poison. I stagger and crash against the padded walls of my room, I fall to the floor and crawl to the corner, the corner where I will live forever.

 

 Not much something I thought I would share.

Against my better judgement I posted a blog entry at SIN.  It isn't that I feel guilty for doing so, or ashamed but part of me thinks and knows much of the message I meant to convey will be lost on those more interested on guarding their ego than accepting judgement for lack of character.  


The truth hurts.  But as my mother used to say it will also set you free.  


Growing up as I did, I was always faced with difficult choices which would have had lasting impact.  Many of those around me my age were heavily into drugs, drinking, smoking and getting into trouble.  Satanism was the furthest thing from their minds it was mostly trying to be "cool" and "different".  I don't consider digging through your fathers ashtray for roaches so you can smoke them as cool.


I refused to act like a bottom feeder.  Yes I was poor, yes I was alone most of the time but my own sense of self worth over powered my need to fit in with any one else or their activities which some were of course illegal.  I feared corrupting my own honor more than I feared getting in trouble for those actions.   


"I've had a lifetime to think about much of the wisdom my family shared with me, especially when they were looking for answers as to who ate all the cake.  Ask me no questions I will tell you no lies.  When possible I would not tell a lie even if it meant getting into some kind of trouble, not always because I believe the line my parents fed me more than I feel responsibility to the responsible should hold true.  If you were stupid enough to get caught, you deserve to fend for yourself."


How hard is it to think before we act or say something?  Assuming that if we did think before speaking it shouldn't come as a shock to us when some one calls bullshit.  We shouldn't get defensive, retaliate in such a manner because our ego cannot take the punishment of dealing with what we brought upon ourselves.  


"This should also apply to knowledge, and our own opinions.  If you disagree with a viewpoint someone has made, if it is in fact the truth that alone should stand as the only reason needed for it to remain.  In word or deed.  If you are caught with your pants down, and evidence points to this.... embrace it for being ashamed of what you have done points to a weakness of character.  This is especially true for those who would call themselves Satanist.  If you have made a mistake, and you are called on it....own up to it...make amends if you must and learn from it so that it will never be repeated.  Denying the truth despite all evidence against you, and worse yet attacking those who would point out that flaw marks you as a coward, and a fool."


If the shoe fits....


"Personal Honor, discipline, and tact should always be the tools by which you think of and carry out any action or word which escapes your mouth.   Then there can be no excuses, or reason to retaliate when you wear the truth like armor."


I reserve judgement, just long enough for someone to prove themselves right or wrong.  Perspective can skew results but context should aid in ensuring the actual message wasn't missed or misinterpreted.  


Own up to your mistakes.  Never feel shame for getting caught doing what you chose to do.  If you are called out on it...don't hide because the wrath it will bring will hurt more than facing the truth did in the first place.

Base ideas on natural force and progression.



A force. A force of nature. A force of natural movement. Even a natural progression to the way of things.


Even mankind has it's natural progression of things (often against the flow of other natural progressions but that is another story).



Everything from the weather and the movement of the stars can be described as a natural force or force of nature. People can get all spiritual about natural force or take the analytical path about it. Take the idea of a sailor and see they both form their movements on the same basic physical ideas. One would get superstitious or spiritual and the other just strives to get the best they can in the direction they want based on values they see and hold. Even without the additive of higher powers both spiritual and analytical see the downside of a strong head wind but not as something to avoid all together.



A person can add good/ bad, good/ evil, right/ wrong, light/ dark ideas to anything they want but in the end it mostly boils down to what they agree with or not in an ego based theme of things. It is the moralistic values that add good and evil sides to an argument even if the evil was just natural resistance to gain strength and purpose of movement. One could say that looking toward that natural resistance to build strength is the human moralistic view of force but even that needs it's down time.



The idea to become soft in the face of this natural force can have many sides just as gaining strength from it has many sides. The human body it's self is based on resistance gains strength but rest in reloads energy needed for that resistance (the idea of physical workouts). Comfort zones are the values that can hinder progression but add rest (comfort zones can be moved)! If I was to use an electric blanket all my life then my body would not need to balance my temperature for it's self and get lazy and this would lead to a weakness. Balance to some is a dirty word but I see it as a lifestyle and even that style needs to see basic things for what they are.



The simple idea of a human trying to move a brick wall is laughable to some but the prime basis of resistance training to others. The only difference between the resistance training and actually trying to move that wall is the end goal.
