Rebellion, Liberation, and acceptance of personal responsibility.
Updated: Jan 5
Rebelling against authority can be a decisive first step towards self-liberation, but it can also become a trap that keeps us in an immature state of mind. At some point, every adversary must come to terms with reality or risk becoming an extremist buffoon. Continuing to rebel indefinitely is the opposite of taking responsibility and achieving independence.
In the beginning, rebellion can provide focus and motivation to break free from oppression and defeat the oppressor. It gives us a clear goal and guide for growth. However, there comes a time when rebellion is no longer a valid strategy.
If we have grown powerful enough, we can have our way without further conflict with the oppressor.
The problem is becoming dependent on an oppressor's existence to maintain a sense of identity. That may lead to frustration, existential depression, identity crises, and anxiety. If the practitioner made his identity a "rebel," establishing like-minded social circles, social media channels, or demonic pacts to support that identity.
It will make it difficult to grow out of and replace that identity with a mature self-standing sense of self.
It is one thing to prepare quietly and keep a low profile while working toward liberation. However, it is quite different to openly promote oneself as the adversary's trooper, which develops a dependency on the oppressor. Opposing social conventions openly will cause alienation from society, pushing oneself further into extremism and closed social circles. Eventually, the identity becomes so entangled with overthrowing the oppressor that it becomes trapped in a permanent state of hate, frustration, and anger.
Even though before empowerment, every action and thought was an act of rebellion against something specific, after empowerment, it no longer holds power over the practitioner's mind and becomes intangible. At this point, even dedicated Black magicians may become ideological saints, fighting against oppressive religious beliefs to sustain their identity. Constantly working against other people's perspective of the world can lead to frustration, especially when the oppressive ideology that the black magician sought to end numbered over 3 billion people. The weight of the reality created by so many minds is too much for one persona to sustain without suffering mental afflictions. This is true for any counterculture that aims to destroy the reality of billions. I have seen many lonely, burned-out individuals continue spreading anarchistic ideals without any direction.
With black magic, detachment and alienation towards mainstream society are likely to occur, but this does not have to bring frustration. Practicing Black Magic can be fulfilling, especially with NLP, hypnotherapy, and life coaching. These methods can potentially empower the sorcerer in a competitive market and provide an advantage over those who have not invested in Lesser Black Magic and hard work. Black magicians are not the only ones who want to be empowered and successful.
The psychological challenge of empowerment is significant and requires responsibility for one's reality and freedom. Oppression exists only in the mind of the oppressed. Once someone is empowered, it is essential to see the oppressor as a minor obstacle rather than continuing to give it power. Freedom does not equal happiness. However, one may never be fully mature without understanding and embracing the freedom of empowered living. Experimenting with taboos, questioning societal norms, kinky sex, rituals, and self-induced psychosis is necessary to facilitate maturation, at least as a black magician.
Satanism may provide support for rebels, but it is not a long-term strategy for self-liberation. It can lead to martyrdom or self-destructiveness. Some Satanists may adopt a monotheistic view of Satan as the one and only god, leading to an identification of Satan as Jehovah and the worshippers of Satan as followers of Satan. Magic often requires a long-term investment and patience, as the results may not be immediately visible. A "quick fix" mentality may not be successful in magic. It is essential to carve out one's reality and place in the world rather than turning against those who have helped empower you and become an adversary.
Are you ready to embrace the mental challenge of true freedom and responsibility?
The weight of oppression is external and internal, and breaking free from it requires a strong mindset. Empowerment is not about blaming others for our struggles but rather taking control of our reality and carving out our place in the world. It is not easy and does not always bring happiness, but it is essential for personal growth and maturity. Some may try to escape their responsibilities by seeking false enlightenment or indulging in reckless behavior, but true strength comes from accepting and embracing the burden of individual freedom. Magic may not always bring quick solutions, but it can have long-lasting effects, like planting an acorn and waiting for the tree to grow. If you are not ready to invest in the unknown and work towards a distant goal, you may not be on the right path in life.
Ignoring the solitary and sometimes difficult responsibilities that come with personal freedom is giving up on ourselves and the power we have earned. Some may try to avoid these responsibilities by pretending to understand spiritual practices or dabbling in magic, but actual growth comes from taking ownership of one's actions and choices. Magic may not always bring immediate results, but it can have long-lasting effects, like planting an acorn and waiting for the tree to grow. If you are unwilling to commit to the journey and the unknown, black magic may not be a suitable path.
Maintaining and defending your boundaries is important, as they are the foundation of self-knowledge and self-respect. By understanding and respecting your limits and needs, you can better navigate your relationships and circumstances and make authentic and genuine choices. Maintaining your boundaries requires ongoing self-awareness and assertiveness, and it is an essential part of healthy and fulfilling relationships with others.
Taking ownership of your emotions and actions is essential for personal freedom. The concept of "religious oppression" can often be used to avoid taking responsibility for one's limitations, and it is important to remember that personal freedom and boundaries are not solely dependent on external factors. It is possible to find liberation and empowerment by working with various spiritual or cultural practices, but it is important to remember that no one person or entity can "save" us from our own struggles. Instead, we must learn to carry our crosses and take responsibility for our lives and choices. It is essential to respect and value our own growth and development and to embrace the freedom to collect new experiences and learn from them.
