As you all may or may not know about me, I'm not a war monger. At one time I was & then I got away from it because in my eyes conflict was pointless aside from being a way to thin the herd. There has been much talk of unity among the Left Hand Path, but it has always been marred by conflict & rightly so. Unity suggests homogeneity & losing one's individuality in favor of a unified whole. This is exactly the tactic used by the slave religions & the consumer cult currently in power to subjugate our society & the minds of the human machines. Is it any wonder that those who understand the Left Hand Path fight the concept of unity tooth & nail!
I write this in regards to statements made by so-called "left hand path" & "satanic" organizations who claim they support the cause of Satanic Unity, yet only seem to promote reverse xtianity & slavery. One group, the Temples of Satan, has even gone so far as to declare war on all those who did not agree with their ideology, calling everyone not in the ToS: "enemies of Satan". They plan to use magickal & other tactics to wage this war against their detractors so they can have "unity" & "peace". Does this sound familiar to anyone? It sure as hell sounds familiar to me!
In the latter days of the Roman Empire, the Emperor Constantine declared xtianity to be the state religion of the Empire. This decision came after a debate between both xtian & Gnostic leaders before the Emperor & his councilors. Upon rendering this decision, the xtian loyalists mobbed the streets raping, murdering, stealing & destroying the property of anyone who was named as a Gnostic, a Gnostic sympathizer, or who would not convert to xtianity on the spot. These tactics were the policy of the Church for centuries until separation of church & state came into vogue & then the holy war had to become slightly more covert. Does anyone honestly think for a second groups like the Temples of Satan, if given the authority, would not engage in similar tactics? If so, then you haven''t been paying attention.
In all my years as an occultist & a student of comparative spirituality, Left Hand Path philosophy always represented freedom of the individual to seek their own evolution & deification. This approach is not exclusive to Satanism & other "left hand path religions", but can be applied to any spiritual path without exception; the same is true of Right Hand Path philosophy which promotes worship & eventual union with a deific force outside oneself achieving immortality through homogenization with the greater whole. Many groups & individuals within the Theistic & Spiritual Satanic paths do not understand this fine difference & are, in fact, promoting a Right Hand Path approach that is doing nothing more but replacing Satan for jesus & putting seekers into nothing more but a different set of chains with a new jailer!
Conflict seems to be unavoidable as these "finer points of interpretation" will soon be the sparks that ignite the powder keg. It pains me to stand by & watch honest seekers be deceived because the rhetoric they are being fed "sounds like" real satanism. Everyone needs to be free to make their own decisions & this is why I very rarely intervene unless asked, but have people truly become so lazy as to take the first thing that comes down the river & accept it as the "only truth"? The only truth is that which we discover for ourselves. It is unique to us & while it may be similar to the "truth" of others, it is never exactly the same. Each person's path is unique & to deny this is to deny freedom which to my understanding, is the foundation of Satanism & the Left Hand Path!
From this point on until the situation changes, I will no longer stay silent. I will speak out against those who are deceiving others with their own self aggrandizing philosophies that lure others to the name of Satan yet shackle them in chains. Through my words & my organization, the Covenant of ARZIR, we will offer a counter current to the homogenous slave unity of "right hand path satanism" as promoted by the Temples of Satan, the Joy of Satan, & the Brotherhood of Satan, as well as many other organizations out there who share similar views. Unity is a death sentence; cooperative individuality is our key to freedom. We are all individuals who walk a unique path. At times we may walk side by side with others on our paths, but ultimately, each path belongs to the individual alone. It costs us nothing to help those walking at our side along their paths; in fact, these acts of service further enrich our own paths through interaction. No one can hold us back on our journey except ourselves; our only enemies are those who would subvert our individuality & try to enslave us to their point of view to the exclusion of our own.
This is the line in the sand. If you are looking for slaves & sycophants, look elsewhere! You will only find those who think & feel for themselves on this side of the line. One of us is worth a hundred of your mindless drones who have traded their souls to be part of your crowd. Your so-called "magicks" will whither before us because we hold your "power" in contempt & pity your pathetic attempts at "control". Crawl back beneath your stones & the ruins of your fallen world, for when the heavens shake with the tolling of the new aeon, only the self-evolved & self-realized will stand. I call to all who read this to cast off your chains & remove the blinders from your eyes. See things for how they are & use your gift of a unique mind. Make your own decisions for no one else but yourself. Don't be fooled by what seems like the "real thing". Test it before you buy it! This is our chance to change the world, & it starts with each & every one of us. Stand up & act! Be unique! Be free!
