"Many a fool has sought to oppose my diabolical will, only to find out later that they probably shouldn't have tried to do that."
- Cthulhu
"I hath dreamed the dreams of the pre-human Serpent-Folk, and communed with long-dead reptiles: and eagerly watched through the Ages, the unending sorrows and suffering of humankind. I await the day when the hand of doom shall rise, and cast aside the remnants of a jaded, decayed, war-exhausted mankind: and Those who Crawl and Slither shall again inherit the Earth."
- Saurian Meditation, album
As humans we are part of the trans-species consciousness, with animals and plants. Even so, many humans do not focus their consciousness in this area or otherwise identify with it. As a result most humans do not understand the greater organic mobility that they possess, so are not able to perceive the unified whole that is part of their physical reality.

"Stop the way of them that would persecute you. Let those who devise thine undoing be hurled back to confusion and infamy. Let them be as chaff before the cyclone and after they have fallen rejoice in thine own salvation. Then all thy bones shall say pridefully, "Who is like unto me? Have I not been too strong for mine adversaries? Have I not delivered MYSELF by mine own brain and body?"
- The Book of Satan, 4:4-5

Someone wrote this on an email list I participate on. I agree with this statement:

"If you feel the need to pointlessly defend your belief endlessly, you're clinging to hard. It's become iconic. Something that "defines" you - not something you LIVE. If you feel the need to be dogmatic and back anything up that gets said by the "big dawgs" [snip] Better to be the Fool - who knows No-Thing and can be Any-Thing. That's where it's at. .. Doubt everything. Question EVERYTHING."

Not for me, the way of the religious mendicant.

Not for me the monestary.

Not for me to retire from the world.

I choose the way of a Cunning Man - artful and subtle, adept and Knowing, ingenious and capable.

I choose to be awake to every aspect of being.
I choose Temperance - between land and sea.
I choose Star, kneeling like a swastika.
I choose Fool looking upward, stepping off.

There are those who will discount religion as insignificant because it was 'created by men'. To these folk I say, 'Religion is DOing'.

Religion is not something created or thought or even felt, but something LIVED. Those who understand this become imbued with brilliance. Those who touch this are transformed.

All the strength given to gods resides within man, even the ability to live forever.

Soon, all religions will reach their peak - a condition of crisis - for folk will realize that spirituality is found only through the inner senses, that consciousness is open-ended, and identity is not dependent upon the bodymind alone.

Organizations within organizations. Pathways that converge to seperate. Courses that flow together yet some lead to Set and some do not. Only he knows which is true. Search if you must, there is no finding, no key, no one doorway. Look if you will but look all your life - one upon the other - and never find, never be fulfilled. Not a web or a net but a turning wheel with a crank. Do not be fooled by the wheel, captured by its turning. Take hold of the crank!

"It is Lucifer,
The Son of Mystery;
And since God suffers him to be,
He, too, is God's minister,
And labors for some good
By us not understood."

"I call'd the devil, and he came,
And with wonder his form did I closely scan;
He is not ugly, and is not lame,
But really a handsome and charming man.
A man in the prime of life is the devil,
Obliging, a man of the world, and civil;
A diplomatist too, well skill'd in debate,
He talks quite glibly of church and state."
- Heinrich Heine, from The Return Home

nahash = 'snake', Sumerian, from *nhsh, 'to decipher, to find out'.

naga = 'snake; fertility, strength', Sanskrit.

nagash = 'snake; serpent', Abyssinian, also the title of their kings.

nacha = 'snake; serpent', Biblical Hebrew.

There is a brotherhood of the snake, a lineage that courses like a deep underground stream of consciousnesss throughout all time, all lives.

"The numbers of the Serpent are sixty-six, and six hundred and sixty-six, and the parts thereof. Because in the coil of the cycle, behold the distances are two-thirds of a circle, whether it be a hundred or a thousand, or three times a thousand. Thus does the Great Serpent rolleth up the heavens, and braideth the firmament into a cyclic coil. None can magnify this by giving it a name - not 'Him' or 'Te-in' or 'Ba'al' or 'God' - for That is the circle without beginning or end. That is the majesty that compasses the multiverse."

"Eternal Taranus - Drawer of Sword - Causer of Sores!
Birthed of Lightening, Feet of Stone, Arms of Oak,
Skull of Starshine - make Fast about me!

Cut down my enemies, scattering their pieces to the wind.
Let the Black Dog come for them, filling his belly.
Let my coming be filled with fear!"

"Growth cycles - such as kundalini rising or shaktipat, for example - would be frightening if we were not prepared for them. Needless to say, it is best to experience these things when fully ready for them, so that we may know them directly. Once done, there is nothing left to learn, nothing left to do because the true nature of our soul - and all that, that is - is rendered instantaneous and complete."

"I went to her of my own free will.
I went there wearing my self, bearing my soul.

In the Underworld - at each of Her Seven Gates - She had me stripped bear.
She removed from me all that I thought of my self.
She removed from me - and I let Her - till I stood bare in who I really am.

Only then did I truly see Her - Ereškigal!

She was huge and dark and smelt of moist earth.
She wore a crown of Seven Stars and a robe of liquid lapis.
Her face was fierce like a lion - with a predator's smile.
She who is the Devourer - Ereškigal!

She is all that I aspire to be, all that I have yet to learn, all that remains buried within.
She is what I have yet to be.

Ereškigal, my grandmother!
Ereškigal, my mother!
Ereškigal, my sister!
Ereškigal, my self!"

When asked to explain seiðr, Yngona Desmond, author and seiðwoman replied: "You know that movie The Sixth Sense, where the kid says, 'I see dead people. All the time.'? Well, seiðr is like that, except I do not see just those who have passed on - ghosts and the like - but animated bodies with blind or ignorant souls. Those are the real dead."

"No soul is forever ignorant. Those who adhere to the idea of sin lack a fundamental trust in their original nature, of the soul, and All That Is. These 'lost souls' focus upon a misconception of what is good while fearing the perception of evil."

"Experience follows expectation - we get what we focus on. Which explains why those who understand that reality is self-created have the least difficulty in life. Likewise a theology of dichotomy. If we believe that every good must be met by bad, or that every bad must be met by good, then we bind ourselves into a system of reality that is highly limiting. One that contains the seeds of great torment."

"This disclosure was given by Adam to his son Seth in his seven hundredth year.
And he said: "Listen to my words, my son Seth. When the Mad One created me out of the earth, along with Eve your mother, I went along with her in a glory which she had seen in the Aeon from which she came forth. She taught me the word of Gnosis of the Eternal God. And we resembled the great eternal angels, for we were higher than the Mad God who created us."

After thus informing us once again of the spiritually superior status of Eve, the scripture goes on to recount how the Mad Creator turned against Adam and Eve, robbing them of their glory and their knowledge. Humans now served the Mad Creator "in fear and in slavery", so Adam stated. While previously immortal, Adam now knew that his days were numbered. Therefore, he said he now wanted to pass on what he knew to Seth and his descendants.

In the prediction it becomes apparent that "Seth and his seed" would continue to experience gnosis, but that they would be subject to many grave tribulations. The first of these would be the flood, during which angels would rescue the Gnostic race of Seth and hide them in a secret place. Noah, on the other hand, would advise his sons to serve the Mad Creator "in fear and slavery all the days of your life."

After the return of the illumined people of Seth's kind, the creator would once again wrathfully turn against them and try to destroy them by raining fire, sulfur, and asphalt down on them - an allusion, perhaps, to the story of Sodom and Gomorrah. Once again many of the Gnostics would be saved by being taken by great angels to a place above the domain of the evil powers.

Much later there would be a new era with the coming of the man of light - Phoster - who would teach gnosis to all.

"This is the hidden knowledge of Adam which he gave to Seth, which is the holy baptism of those who know the imperishable Gnosis through those who are born of the Logos, through the imperishable Illuminator, who himself came from the holy seed of Seth."

"We venerate the serpent because God has made it the cause of Gnosis for mankind.
Ialdabaoth - the Mad Demiurge who was the 'god of the Jews' - did not want men to have any recollection of the Mother or of the Father on high.
It was the serpent, who by tempting them, brought them Gnosis;
who taught the man and the woman the complete knowledge of the mysteries from on high. That is why Ialdabaoth, mad with fury, cast it down from the heavens."
- St. Epiphanius, Adversus Haereses

I am the son of that which reigns over all the earth.
I am the son of that which encircles the globe.
I am related to that which is beyond the ocean and whose tail is in its own mouth.
It is I who spoke to Eve in Eden, speaking to her of the truth,
that which the Mad One would not let her know.

Each probability of being - every thought - is brought into actuality and existence.

Each probablility of being - every thought - is an infinite creative act that creates for itself infinite dimensions in which fulfillment is possible.

I walk the Fearless Path, called as sacred Witness.

There is nothing I will not Witness, no image or vision I will not see and touch with you.
There is nothing that will make me look away.

I will not challenge, defeat, or protect you from the demons that are yours.
But I will stand with you and offer you my courage, while you face them yourself.

I carry the tragedies I have witnessed in my life with me.
They are no longer wounds that define me -
they are scars that shape me, giving form and strength that I would not have otherwise.

There are no Fears I will not face with you.
