Maybe you’re new to the left-hand path, you’ve let go of your religious beliefs, and are now looking for something to fill that void, right? I ask you: Are you truly ready for this?
When Nietzsche stated GOD IS DEAD what did he mean? Was it a victorious declaration proclaiming the demise of a tyrant? Or was it a warning? The truth of Nietzsche’s statement was that Christianity, and the morals that came with it, were no longer the most important aspects of Western Society. God was symbolically murdered by an indifference caused by a societal shift away from faith and towards a new rationalism brought on by the Enlightenment (The Age of Lucifer). For those strong enough to deal with it, the death of God can be a good thing, but for most, not so much. I think we’re all aware of prisoners who have spent years behind bars, get released, then in no time find themselves locked back up again. Why does this happen? It’s because they’re institutionalized. They don’t like the fact that they, themselves, and no one else, are responsible for their life and its outcome. They don’t want to face their inadequacies. A similar thing happens when people let go of God. They often go looking for a new one. Many find another form of theism, while others find their god in political movements or government in general. You see this in many “born-again atheists”. They leave one collective (the Church) to join a new one due to fear of their newly found individuality. They don’t want to be responsible for themselves. They’d rather be a faceless member of a flock. And this goes for most people who revolt against the established order. They remove the shackles that were put on them as children and put on new ones, shinier ones.
So, are you strong enough to face your demons and brave the horrors that lie within the Dark Absolute of the psyche, withstand the death of God, and face the reality of your autonomy realizing that you, and only you, are responsible for yourself and that you don’t need a guardian, God or government? If so, then welcome to the left-hand path!
