Several months ago I suddenly found myself so comforted by the darkness that the idea of going back to right hand path and wiccan based forums makes me snarl my nose. I believe in mixing different types of magick to receive a well rounded education and more powerful experience so if a spell or etc. seems legit and works for me I don’t care what path or system it comes from however some paths and practitioner types clearly were not meant to be mixed and mingled.
I realized how annoying the RHP types really are when I decided to test the waters by visiting an old favorite forum of mine. It used to be highly active, hundreds of particpants per day and the same 20 or so devoted members could be found online at least once or twice per day contributing to topics and chatting with others in the chat room. But then the attendance levels dropped and things fell apart when the owner’s wife died and he suddenly went from being the “guy with a twig up his ass 24/7” to being a “whatever I don’t care anymore do what you want” non-attendant type of guy. His wife’s death literally killed his spirit, but unlike some wiccan forums he had a section for LHP, Santeria, Luciferianism etc. because he was raised in a pagan family and had a more well rounded magickal education.
After his sudden depression and lack of attendance the LHP members came out of the works a little more, maybe less afraid to post now since they figured the forum wasn’t so heavily restricted anymore however I was shocked when I went back and began posting some darker topics just to see what type of response I would get. You could say that, I have never seen wiccans and pacifists get such nasty attitudes with anyone before until the day when I mentioned that yes, there is such a thing as black and white magick and that magick for self gain was 100% okay to perform, on a wiccan forum. LOL. Like christians, they too will show us a side of hatred and cold shoulders.
They always claim to hate relgious radicals just as much as we do and they dislike the control of monotheistic religions yet they have no problem showing the same types of attitudes towards those who openly admit to darker practices. They seem just as hypocritical as the monotheistic one-god-only types. No surprise there, I understand that wiccans follow RHP concepts because they don’t want to hurt anyone and many believe there is no such thing as black or white magick because it labels magick into groups and to them it signifies that evil does in fact exist which is something they believe is not real, that evil is a human concept so by claiming black magick is real to them, that’s like admitting evil is real. Yeah, their ideas on this are strange.
Anyway, that was no shocker. What surprised me was that even the people on that forum claiming to be LHP, Satanist, Luciferian, and so on had completely warped views unlike any I’ve ever seen on this forum here. These people seemed to be just as brainwashed by the RHP concepts as the wiccans were. In good faith, just to find out what makes them so different from us I asked several questions with genuine intent to learn but the responses I got were uncommon. The ideas I mentioned, here on this forum such questions would be viewed as normal and met with the usual responses and understanding, but over there the so called LHPer’s upheld wiccan based beliefs.
They too believed that it was wrong to curse someone, wrong to perform magick for self gain, there was no such thing as black magick or white magick and that all magick is just “gray”, demons are not real, christianity is not real but pagan gods are real and so on. I found myself arguing with a few of them because they were suggesting I was delusional so in a sense everyone on this forum must be delusional too. I didn’t start the argument I asked questions to find out what they thought about certain subjects and they responded (both the wiccans and the so called LHPers over there) with tension, dismissing all of the ideas we have over here as false.
Okay, sounds like they’re just wiccan to me and using a dark title to feel cool, but they argue me up and down claiming no I’m a dark blah blah of the LHP path. How can you claim to be that yet openly admit you only believe the same ideas the wiccans do? While also stating that everything we speak of on forums like this one, are bullshit lies. I really think they just don’t understand the difference between each path and having only been members of wiccan forums, I can see why they’d be so confused. Most people on this forum that would read their posts would think WTF?
I wonder if the wiccans on that forum are falsely educating those who want to branch to LHP based paths by lying to them to keep them truly wiccan because these people claim to be LHP but have no knowledge what so ever about Lucifer, Satan, LHP concepts, godhood, black and white magick. Just so strange and if you try to ask questions to find out what gave them these ideas, the wiccans go into overdrive protective mode and shew you away from there like a fly. So recently, I have come to discover that the wiccans as opposed to brainwashing as they may seem, are in fact doing some brainwashing of their own.
The LHPers over there even say there is no such thing as self-mastery there are only partnerships with deities that have more control over the world than we do and that anyone who believes self-mastery or godhood is achieveable is just selfish and narssicistic. How could you truly be LHP if you believe that? Isn’t one of the core concepts of LHP realizing that we do have control of our lives and refusing to let any one god or spirit handle all of our affairs for us?
