A little about my background : I had issues with Multiple and Borderline Personality Disorder when I was in high school - it was fucking me up… till ‘something’ led me to a hidden cupboard in my house that had the book “The Bhagavad Gita” in it. My hands grabbed that book as if I was hypnotised- so I started with the Bhagavad Gita (a book that changed my life by changing how I look at the concept of ‘personality’) - then moved onto basic ‘spiritual’ books like The Kybalion, some of the Gallery of Magick stuff, some Lon Milo Duquette, some E.A. Koetting.
I have mainly dabbled in theory as of now - and have had some minor success in interacting with Krishna, Shiva, Hanuman, Saturn, and the demon Zagan (I worked with him to grant me anonymity and lack of visibility at a time I needed it - it worked, and I am grateful to Zagan, as I am grateful to the other spirits as well)
I work with the government, am a musician - have an affinity with Lucifer - and intend to work further with Krishna, Shiva and Lucifer in the future.
I’m anything but a powerhouse of the dark arts. I’m a dabbler, am unsure of the potencies of ‘magick’ - and thus at this point in my life - am a skeptic.
And what I am skeptical about is - is practical magick REALLY that effective?
No, I’m not talking ‘spirituality’ or ’ self-help’ or ‘magick helped me look at the world in a different way’ kinda thoughts here.
Most of you here are practising Black Magicians on the Left Hand Path right?
I’m looking for clarifications from you - about how effective all of this really is.
Basically, what’s up with the COVID-19 bullshit? It’s been about 8 months now - this world is stuck in limbo - people are dying - things happening beyond our control -
We are basically stuck at home in quarantine - against our will (And I mention this, because LHP practitioners apparently detest the concept of having to do anything against their conscious control/will) - unable to have fun outside - unable to meet our friends - to go out on trips - to visit rock concerts - to date and romance - heck, we are even apprehensive about going out to buy groceries!
If magick is really that effective, why aren’t ‘Sorcerers’ battling this Coronavirus yet? And if they ARE pathworking against this virus, why has nothing happened? it’s HIGH TIME something positive happened - that would make life fun for ALL OF US, don’t you think?
E.A. Koetting in his book Evoking Eternity writes this : "The Evocator quickly realizes that with the assistance of the darkest demons he is capable of swinging open the gates of hell on
earth and unleashing apocalyptic devastation; that by summoning Archangels the kingdom of heaven in all of its peace and abundance will be brought to living glory on earth"
^now this is quite a bold claim, but it seems a little funny that a Magician can summon Archangels in “all their peace and abundance and bring living glory on earth” - and yet this virus has put ALL of our lives into limbo - and we have been unable to do anything against it, isn’t it?
Many of you here will tell me now, “magick cannot accomplish everything, look to professional medical help - look to mundane solutions - not everything has its solutions in magick” and thoughts resembling something akin to this.
Well of course, I admit the validity of those points - but many Black Magicians attach a LOT of potency to magick when all is hunky and dory - yet tell us to revert back to “mundane methods” when the shit starts hitting the fan? All of this has made me skeptical, and I seek answers.
Please don’t be offended - for I am not ‘confronting’ any of you - or asking you to “prove” yourselves etc - I mean no disrespect to any of you. As a skeptic, I need some questions answered. (I am tagging some people here whom I have seen and admired here. But anybody is welcome to share their thoughts)
@Lady_Eva - I am aware you have a seperate Coronavirus pathworking thread for this. But I am not talking about individual band-aid solutions to dealing with this pandemic. I am suggesting a global union of Black Magicians to collectively fight this virus, because I am pretty sure this pandemic is a pain-in-the-ass for nearly all of us. I have seen many of your posts where you have written comprehensively and eruditely on many matters - from Theogenesis, to your desire to “command the powers of a Goddess on Earth” - and I find them all pretty admirable. Please, share your thoughts with us.
@Verdo - I am aware you have compiled a thread exactly for this purpose, a thread about the “Success Stories of Magick” - I personally loved that thread, and I respect the way you write so authoritatively and intelligently about many magickal topics here. I’m interested to know of your viewpoints.
@Norski - Your posts about “the appropriate mindsets a practising Mage should have” - have indeed given me valuable insights. Also, your threads and posts about working with various entities - regarding the way they act with seduction/love/relationships - have all been highly appreciated. I want your viewpoints on this as well
@Azi_Dahaka - I loved your thread about “The most powerful and dangerous currents on the planet” - and I’d love it if you let your thoughts known to us as well.
@Anziel_Merkaba - You are a powerhouse of Chaos Magick. I honestly consider your posts regarding Chaos a bit too advanced for me at this stage in my magickal ascent - and I’ve also seen your thread where you went on a mission to harness the powers of each of the 72 Goetic Daemons over a span of time. Please, help me out by sharing what you think.
@C.Kendall - I’ve found a treasure trove of valuable information on your youtube channel, and I consider you a Black Magician worth his salt. Your thoughts?
@Mulberry - I liked many of your posts and threads as well. I have gained a lot reading about your posts on various parasitic entities, faeries, various spirit-entities, Nergal et al - I respect your knowledge, and I want to know what you have to say about this.
I predict some of you maybe telling me stuff akin to : “Well, why aren’t YOU doing anything about it?”
Look, I’d love to do something about it - if I was not a dabbler merely starting my journey. Right now, skepticism clouds my mind, and I seek answers.
I do not ‘command the powers of Goetic Kings and Archangels’ - but a lot many of you here have interacted with these powerful entities right?
If you indeed have, why are you held against your will in home-quarantine as a raging virus puts our entire world in limbo?
Are these magickal methods really that potent, or am I wasting my time as a dabbler thinking Magick will change my life - and am better off considering all of this more as fantasy than as something that can affect our reality?
Do not please think for a moment I’m telling any of you guys here SPECIFICALLY to do something about it. I understand many of you might have other priorities and engagements in life etc ---- the doubt I have in my mind is more like “Is this Coronavirus thing really not that serious a matter enough for any Black Magicians to consider it a hindrance in their lives to want to move the forces of nature against it?!”
