THEISTIC SATANISM (also known as traditional Satanism or spiritual Satanism) is the belief that Satan—as prefigured in (most prevalent) Christian and/or Islamic (less often) contexts—is a supernatural being or force that individuals may contact and supplicate to, and represents loosely affiliated or independent groups and cabals which hold such a belief. Another characteristic of Theistic Satanism include the use of ceremonial magic. Unlike LaVeyan Satanism, as founded by Anton LaVey in the 1960s, theistic Satanism is theistic as opposed to atheistic, believing that Satan is a real entity rather than an archetype.
LAVEYAN SATANISM (also known as ATHEISTIC SATANISM or Modern Satanism), referred to simply as Satanism among adherents, is a religious philosophy founded in 1966 by Anton LaVey and codified in The Satanic Bible in 1969. Its core beliefs and philosophies are based on individualism, epicureanism, secularism, egoism, and self-deification, and propagates a worldview of naturalism, Social Darwinism, and Lex Talionis.
Contrary to popular belief, LaVeyan Satanism does not involve “devil worship” or worship of any deities. It is an atheistic philosophy that uses the character of Satan as a symbol of pride, carnality, liberty, enlightenment, undefiled wisdom, and of a cosmos which Satanists perceive to be permeated and motivated by a force that has been given many names by humans over the course of time.
Present-day you meets 10-years-ago you for coffee. Share with your younger self the most challenging thing, the most rewarding thing, and the most fun thing they have to look forward to.
Ok listen up 28 year old me. You are going to get screwed a couple of times at work. One will be a little more than a year from now. You will think at that time that this is the worst thing to have ever happened to you and you will be sad, there will be some tears and a lot of “Why me?” and the feelings of having done a lot for nothing and having been taken advantage off will meander through your brain. And it gets worse for a year or so. And then it will get better.
Infact it will get better for a while. For 4 years to be exact or rather 3.5 years and then shit happens again. You will fall in love once and have another woman be interested in you. Ignore both situations and do not speak of them or think much of it. It doesn’t matter in the long run. More trouble lies ahead that will need your full attention. You need to be careful and look out for something better before these 4 years are over. Take actions to avoid the pitfalls in your path.
You will be miserable and you will lonely, hopeless, useless and you will be broke and you will feel like nothing is worth this life. I’m sorry but life is miserable at this point in time, 10 years from now. Unless you can change it. Be on your guard and make wise decisions to counter act these issues.
