I love it when I meet super religious folks who tell me "Stay away from the internet! It is Satan's playground!". I usually agree with them because I do not really enjoy seeing them go online anyway.
The internet has given us access to all the information, or almost all information, videos, and other things with a touch of a button. We are here socializing, sharing, and learning. Where do we use internet for the most? Pornography.
Pornography is just one of the best things about internet. A large number of internet users out there goes online to get their daily dose of tits and ass. The internet is a boon because it is our release to do what we want WITHOUT BEING JUDGED.
That is the bottomline. The internet gives people freedom they do not get in regular social situations because they do not want to be judged. People can freely express what they want to say and read up on things they have always wanted to read about. The internet, in its very core, has helped people progress faster than ever than prior to its existence.
To those who know how to play in "Satan's playground" as the preacher once put it, will find that almost anything you want to discover about news, science, philosophy, and so on, are available right on your fingertips. It is also used for one to relax and watch stuff they want to watch. The internet has helped us conncect and made our world smaller and more interactive.
People who fail frequently are people who always have an excuse for everything, and always blame something else beyond their control.
People who succeed will accept their mistakes, and see the mistakes of others or other situation as a stepping stone, a lesson to themselves to ensure success in the next round.
In the end, your success solely depends on you, even for situations beyond your control, you have to find a way to work around it and turn disasters to opportunities."
I love it when people blame the devil, or god's anger or test on their current situation. They always have an excuse.
I had to tackle a situation this morning of ultimate stupidity. They then tell me "Sir, I did not know", all I told them is "if you do not know, ask", to which they replied "you seemed busy". The heck.
There's something quite poetic about the deep blue sea.
The deep blue sea, the deep blue sea.
I swim in azure monotone even when the sky is bright, and the ground below isn't. The world of fish surrounds me yet I am alone, a tank on my back yet nothing to return to after. When the air is all gone, I die.
And yet in this deep blue sea I am an observer, a ghost to the fishes who seem to know not of my existence, but who waylay through their own in their own poetic amnesia of 30 seconds or less. Who has time to remember anyway? Memories are selective and biased after all.
I'll be honest. I have not met any other Satanists where I am, and yet I openly declare myself to be an author as well as a Satanist to the most conservative people. I do not make new friends saying what I say, doing what I do, but I did not become a Satanist j...ust because I wanted to make new friends.
Religion gets to keep communities believing because they have a society. People meet up after, go for picnics, play Bingo, conduct all these activities that make you feel part of something. People like it, and it makes them happy.
Bottom line though, it is all a distraction. You want a community? Fine, there are many interest groups to look into; but if your intention in becoming a Satanist is because you want to make friends with like mind, good luck buddy! We're not the most popular people out there, and because of this, you're all alone.
Satanism and Open Mindedness - I usually keep my philosophy to myself when in public. When asked, I simply tell them that I am an atheist who also follows Shaivite and Satanic philosophies. I see the surprised look in their face, and do my best to explain things in its simplest form (which is mostly focused on our view of love and the universe). This has helped me avoid debates that are typically a waste of time.
Why do I avoid debates? Simply put, debating to a religious person is a waste of time. I followed the Satanic philosophy because I was open to explore different things and concepts. I was open enough to change my mind and accept if my understanding of anything is wrong. I am open to accepting I am wrong from anyone, provided they give me a very good logical support.
The right to hate and choose to pass laws promoting hate does exist, and you will find it surprising that it exists in almost all countries as well.
The question is, how do we define hate to which we say it is imposing our laws? Simply put, the moment we discriminate, and put laws on discrimination, then we are promoting hate. If we endorse specific faiths and limit the rights of the others indirectly, we are promoting hate. The moment we impose our belief to the other side that has nothing to do with us, we are, in fact, imposing hate.
To further this fact, when a country bans same sex marriage, they are actually promoting discrimination, by omitting the right of a couple to be in legal communion. One has to redefine and ask themselves, if the couple are happy together, and are not causing harm to the community, why should we stop them from being together?
