The Dark-side.

Cassie is the most thoughtful and logical Witch who is also a “Satanist” in her own way, and i agree with most of what she writes. I guess for me i could say i am a bit of a “Luciferian” myself. Here is a good post she made, and my comments – When i was younger and practicing mostly eastern systems i began reading Jung and was stuck by what he said that westerners cannot Really practice eastern religions in the way it is done in the east, and i learned that living in a monastery and ashram. I still practice Buddhism and Shaivism, but from that point on delved more into western magicke and witchcraft and shamanism. I think one of his best books is “The Gnostic Jung and the Seven Sermons to the Dead”. And that link to the quotes was good too, and if you keep following links at that site it takes you to a quote of Jung called “The Devil” http://www.reconnections.net/the-devil-jung-redbook.htm which starts off somewhat standard in his interpretation but in the end makes sense, like you do. I too as a child had my mind blown away when my parents bought me a telescope and i realized how small we are.

Satanism doesn’t actually seem as dark as I probably expected it to be. In truth I find it very enlightening. Or perhaps my heart and soul are so corrupted by the darkside by now that I don’t recognise it anymore? I’m sure a few Christians might think that… Not surprisingly, I don’t agree. But it is true that becoming a Satanist was part of a personal process based on a need I felt to explore and integrate the darker side of my psyche.

But what does that mean? What is the dark-side?

For the most part I equate the Dark-side with what Jungian psychologists refer to as the shadow side.

“Beneath the social mask we wear every day, we have a hidden shadow side: an impulsive, wounded, sad, or isolated part that we generally try to ignore. The Shadow can be a source of emotional richness and vitality, and acknowledging…

  1. It’s interesting to see that the Luciferian / Satanic path centres on self. This is a big contrast with one of my biggest influences, William Blake who sees both the self and Satan as foes.

    • Yea the word “satan” is a loaded term both as a word and a deity with many interpretations spread through Christianity to modern magick to Haitian Vodoun. I think LaVey satanism was about the little ego self vs the archetypal Self which is one with God. My Luciferianism is more like how the Freemasons and others define a rebel against outside authority, especially religious authorities. He is more an angel of light that has “fallen” by choice or not into Malkuth, much like the legend of the Nephilim coming down like aliens teaching ancient mankind the arts of metal smithing etc. If you read through Cassie’s blog you will find her quite intelligent and balanced and not a shock jock who is more attracted to the philosophy rather than the trappings. We both just see “satan” as a darker form of the Horned God like in the Wild Hunt, or like Pluto or Hades, but i hesitate to speak for her.
