It’s time to stop and reflect a little. Today I found some insence and meditated for a while on the status quo.
According to my tarot cards, things are going to be very interesting in the time ahead. I see both success and termoil (Justice). And the key card is the Dragon (no. 11). Perhaps it’s no accident that as I type Venus is passing the Sun, the next generation internet is being released, and perhaps less of a coincidence it’s Sweden’s national day.
So enough with the astrological and cosmic list of coincidence.
Time to get real about the status ahead.
Well then, let’s begin.
When I started this blog, I started because I wanted a place where I could express myself as a Luciferian, having experienced a deep connection with the archetype of Lucifer as a light-bringer, the genius of knowledge, the symbol of the higher self, and all this locked in the proverbial youth of the Indigo Child (although an adult Indigo).
Not as the caricature ‘devil’ or ‘devil worshipper’ that would be such a very Christian way of seeing it.
What did I expect?
I expected perhaps more attacks from Christian individuals and groups. Except one single incident in one year, it did not happen. I am relieved and surprised. Because it means I could focus more on defining Luciferianism toward myself and an informed audience, instead of having distractions of less value interfere with this work. In the same way, I resisted the temptation to interfere with Christian blogs and groups, or any other group for that matter, except the left hand path or Luciferian groups that already had a connection to Luciferianism or the Occult.
Having a webpage is almost like a living notebook. I’ve tried to keep everything open and well defined, except of course certain things to protect the names of individuals. I found that I could finally channel some of the energy and work that I could not channel through my professional, private or occult life (even occultists sometimes misunderstand Luciferianism).
Following and being followed
I’ve gathered a small troupe of regulars who subscribe to my pages. I am honoured, and likewise follow their and other blogs to see and be a part of other people’s ideas. I especially like blogs, since blogs contain long articles that require (most of the time) skilled writing, a feature so often missed in so-called ‘social networks’ where people tend to a) discuss mundane topics, like politics and other mainstream issues that really doesn’t bring any more value to me coming to the internet than I could get in my local café or supermarket. or b) newbies or trolls who ask the same or lame questions about really simple, beginner-level, or far-fetched ideas. Sometimes I wonder if some of these people hanging around in occult/LHP chatrooms all day just sit and smoke marihuana or ganja and see striped brightly-colored elephants all day. Or c) social people who just chat to chat, talk about the weather, or lightly touch some dream or medidtation.
And YES, social media DOES permit people to write LONG essays and yes there are even forums to post blog-like lengthy articles, but then people are typing according to topic in a forum and not redacting according to atheme in their own blog. It’s like lacking a general idea of the form of having a red thread through several articles, not just one, a coherence in character that a blog gives, and a social media gives to a lesser degree.
Don’t get me wrong, WordPress is also social, just think about the comments I get to articles, and the comments I give to other articles. This kind of spontaneous exchange is meaningful and useful. My point is that I wished social networking sites specifically designed for interaction between people would have the same level of quality. The technology makes it possible, although for some reason, 80% of the people don’t generate any added value.
The problem is not limited to blogs or social networking forums, I see the trend is all over the internet, that the quality is reduced. I thought about something on my way back from work today, especially something that Alex Jones wrote; that books are better. It’s true that more recent information will be on the internet, and the internet will always be more updated, but not necessarily more accurate or give the correct depth, or, I should say, time.
Everything on the internet happens so quickly. A twitter message is not just restricted in number of characters, it’s restricted in the sense that it took that many seconds to have an idea flow onto the keyboard and onto the screen, being published. A book goes through months or years of review before being published.
A book can be published via paper or electronically – it doesnt matter the medium of which the book is delivered, but the redaction process.
A blog entry is lightweight chapter in a notebook, of course it is more floating than anything writing a book, but it is a great opportunity to recognise the value of blogs properly redacted, and books, whom by nature is well redacted.
