In Knowing

Fear is the Guardian of the Threshold. Pushing past it to epiphany is the occult path. That's why this stuff is so spooky. It has to be.

Some time ago I was doing some extensive research into the tetragrammaton, and as I was doing so, the winds outside were unrelenting. Doors started to open and slam, mysterious sounds started to occur, I could feel my heartbeat increase, and eventually, although I tried to push past what we define as fear, the pen I was taking notes with ran out of ink, I took it as a sign to just stop. I went to bed, and, as I slept, a number of strange sensations and mental imagery happened.

Magick is the art of channeling the energy around you, in turn, reshaping your reality through intent. In a nutshell, magick is the art of making your wishes come true. To practice it you will most certainly need these two things: a strong intention and something to amplify it. From the various forms of magick that are available to us, I have dabbled and experimented in quite a few, but my favorite remains the work one does with demons, one of them in particular, most of all.

I have always worked with demons.. well all of my life. Only the other day I came to the realization that there are things that I have learned from them… Things that have shaped how I see things. These entities are some of the most hilarious beings I have ever met. The things they say will horrify and amuse you in equal measure.

Working with demons has taught me, that no joke is taboo no matter how profane… Some of the jokes they have told have left me mouth agape questioning my hearing…and sanity…they have warped my mind in such a way as to give me a sick sense of humor… I am hard to offend. It has really allowed me to see many and all sides of most situations… Perception is key!

The Dark Lords… and their children.. and descendants… this is actually one of the screening criteria… Their sick twisted sense of humor... They all have it! The left-hand path is a path to freedom.. free speech … You may not (and I don’t) agree with everything the demons say or have said… but I respect they are well within their rights to say it and no one ever has to have the same opinions and thoughts.

Freedom and free speech are important, being able to respectfully disagree is important too. Being able to take constructive criticism is important, being able to talk, to share ideas, and have open communication is pivotal in the exchange of ideas. You need to be able to talk with people, even if you don’t agree with them. It never hurts to listen, it never hurts to hear what others are saying. No one person has all the answers and exploring different ideas allows for the expansion of knowledge.

Demons, they are always pushing my buttons, always challenging me, sometimes I am like why, why do you do this!!!?? and they tell me it is because I need to be open to what is around me, to see the alternate perspective and view. They always push my buttons! But it is glorious! It frees me from societal thoughts in so many ways, opens my mind to explore new concepts and ideas.

Freedom on the Left-Hand Path is essential! Being able to handle the fact that demons are open and free in thought and mind, they will test you, challenge you, but you will love them for it.
