Of course, this does not cover all LHP practices; any time one seeks to categorize something there will always be some component that defies classification. However, in my studies of LHP, especially in the West, this description portrays my findings accurately. Paganism has its own flavor of LHP spirituality. In Pagan LHP, also known as Dark Paganism, one of the first things noticed are the gods who are venerated or worshiped. While there are those who seek a reality in which all things are revealed in glorious luminance, there are those who brave the unknown darkness in order that they might discover for themselves the mysteries of the universe.
Some choose to obtain enlightenment, sloughing off the mortal coil and choosing to be part of a collective bliss. Others delve within, past the murkiness and slimy things that have never known light, in an effort to discover the core of their quintessential nature. Once found, this core can Album) cultivated and nurtured into evolution.
Getting to this core, to which I have alluded, involves coming face to face with the most primal, and often frightening aspects of oneself and the universe. The dark gods aid us in working with such forces. They lead us through our terrors, and let us know that, as others have gone before, so too can we. In truth, this does sometimes occur.
Traversing the Left Hand Path takes a will of iron and an equally strong sense of identity. To know Album) you are not those things that hint at the Left Hand Path - Catatonic Society - Baptistina (CD can be difficult, and at times the seeker becomes lost to the monsters, both within and without. However, this is not always the case. Like any other spiritual practice, the LHP traveler must have determination and discipline.
Those who honestly pursue spiritual growth from going within can overcome the obstacles inherent in such a practice. With all this talk of the self, one could speculate that the LHP seeker would have no interest in community, which has been a long sought after aspect of Paganism. While those on the LHP do have an egocentric worldview, it is not at the expense of community. In a world, cut off at the knees.
Corrupt and diseased. I'm losin my mind. I'm wasting my time. Don't let me slip. I've lost my grip. A higher power like law. I have no control. Hell-Bent Sheep's in wolves clothing you pretend to be.
Everything I hold dear to me. I have come to see it in a different way. In any case my Satanism is personal and eclectic and not based exclusively on the CoS and certainly not on idiotic and perverse reverse Christianity.
Hi Cassie, good grief, I just read the above comments — how rude! Do they really think they are going to change their mind about their whole belief system based on some blog feedback?? Anyway, sorry about that, but that kind of thing is annoying to me. You seem way more cool about it. I just wanted to say that I found this post very interesting. I think if you go through life completely RHP then you may end up suppressing things and disconnect from your Shadow, which is always a mistake.
We need Left Hand Path - Catatonic Society - Baptistina (CD edge to survive in this world. Interestingly, my left hand and arm are actually stronger than my right, even though I am right-handed!
Just before I found your blog, I had a dream where I was looking at my left hand and I was wearing black nail polish. Never in my life have I worn black nail polish. I think I painted my nails blue one time as a teenager, but I never tried black. Then after that dream, I found your blog! Kind of scary! Maybe it was just an omen that I was about to meet Left Hand Path - Catatonic Society - Baptistina (CD. Well, if it was an omen I hope the meeting was not a disappointment! As you say, I am not going to change my opinion because of one or two childish comments.
Constructive criticism is fine though or any other comments that make me think. I do sometimes change my mind on issues if somebody comes up with a convincing argument.
