So a friend of mine invited me to a party barbecue she was having at her house, I had been there before, so during our talking, she invites me to their bedroom and shows me a book, she said "Dont say anything, but (Blank) is a satanist" I haven't heard about anyone actually being satanic unless it was a hollywood movie, so I was concerned, then she showed me one of his books. It was only for a few minutes, like less than five minutes and their life laws seemed pretty solid actually. I want to share what I have read here.
I used to think it was some dark evil S●●●, but actually, I dont think it is anymore, I just think it's different and different can be OKAY! Just like it's OK to have friends that don't believe or feel like ones self. I think overall the BF was afraid of her and himself losing friends if people knew his beliefs, because they wouldnt investigate, but instead assume.
If I am wrong, please PLEASE correct me here, because Im actually interested in learning more about this. Do I feel this is for me? No, but if its for you, then no shade thrown on you brother/sister.

The Eleven Satanic Rules of the Earth
by Anton Szandor LaVey
Do not give opinions or advice unless you are asked.
Do not tell your troubles to others unless you are sure they want to hear them.
When in another’s lair, show him respect or else do not go there.
If a guest in your lair annoys you, treat him cruelly and without mercy.
Do not make s●●ual advances unless you are given the mating signal.
Do not take that which does not belong to you unless it is a burden to the other person and he cries out to be relieved.
Acknowledge the power of magic if you have employed it successfully to obtain your desires. If you deny the power of magic after having called upon it with success, you will lose all you have obtained.
Do not complain about anything to which you need not subject yourself.
Do not harm little children.
Do not kill non-human animals unless you are attacked or for your food.
When walking in open territory, bother no one. If someone bothers you, ask him to stop. If he does not stop, destroy him.
I think this is all some solid stuff right here. I have seen variations of these depending on where on the internet I look, but it all remains pretty much these earthen laws right here listed above.
For the longest time, I struggled to figure out what I believed in. Identifying as Christian, wiccan/pagan, and agnostic. I've very recently been coming to the realization that I have always felt a need to defer myself to a higher power, but I had never thought about why. Why am I letting some mysterious entity that may not even exist run my life? The only person who has control over my life is me, so why not give myself credit and control over my own destiny?
Realizing that has been life-shifting. Nothing has necessarily changed, but my perspective on my life has colored everything in a different hue. I can choose what happens in my life, I can make my own decisions, and I can craft my own destiny. It feels amazing to give myself that power, to acknowledge my own role in the direction of my life.
Do I want to be happy? Then do what makes me happy.
Do I want to feel accepted? Then accept myself.
Do I want to feel loved and whole? Then allow myself to cherish every part of me, and let those parts flourish and grow into something beyond what I could have ever dreamed.
Deciding for myself feels more fulfilling than trying to appease a mystery ghost ever has. I don't have to submit myself to something I'm not even sure is there. Even if there is something out there, they haven't done enough in my life to earn such reverence from me, so I would much rather revere myself. Some may see that as a bit narcissistic, but I see it more as having the self-esteem to put myself first.
I recently got a job as a Game Master at a puzzle escape room, and the only person who did that for me was myself. I have myself and my abilities to thank for it, not some "god" or diety. It feels so good to know my lived experiences and ingenuity were able to get me a job I wanted!
When I prayed and begged some kind of higher power to help me, I was stuck going nowhere. I wasn't getting jobs, I wasn't growing, and I wasn't getting better. Getting better started when I took control for myself and gave myself the reigns in my own life.
I look forward to taking even more steps towards my future, and I have myself to thank for that. That feels absolutely amazing.
So, TL;DR, worship and praise yourself. A diety isn't the one living your life, you are. You deserve credit and respect for that! It isn't a bad thing to love yourself and have respect for your own capability. It doesn't make you selfish to take credit for your own achievements. So take the reigns, take control, and kick life's ass.
Love y'all ;-* *boob squeeze*
Hey there y'all,
Quick question for you after a brief little intro -- I believe that there are only two biological genders (trans being vague middle ground bc they are transitioning from one to the other) and identify politically as a centrist who leans a little more so to the right (used to be more left when I was younger). I also am a non-denominational Christian who doesn't believe that church is what it used to be so I refuse to go.
The thing is though, I understand and accept everyone equally. Fully equally. We are all human. I will respect pronouns and not treat anyone differently for their opinions on gender, politics, or religion. However, I have found more and more people that will lash out at me because of my stances on any of these topics though. 'Don't believe in more than two genders? Are you even educated?' 'How can you lean more right while Trump is in office?' 'How can you claim to be a part of Christianity and not agree with all of the Bible or go to church?' etc.
So I guess my question is...
Why can't we all just respect each other? Why can't we find something to appreciate about everyone that we meet? Why do we have to be so innately judgemental?
I guess that's a few questions. Looking for honest, heartfelt opinions though. Would love to hear from you all on this topic. Or if you just want to leave a comment and tell me a bit about your views on gender, politics, or religion, please feel free. I am very interested in learning other viewpoints and maybe getting to know a few beautiful human beings. 🙂
