Empathy and the destruction of the individual

 

Empathy, the synchronisation of emotions between more than one individual. The nexus of empathy can be both embracing and invasive. Empathy can be nurturing or incredibly destructive. To delve deeper into both the concepts of the identity, the ego and empathy we should place emotion under the microscope. Emotions are a foray, well deservingly of their own.  To classically define them, they exist as both a mental and physical reaction but operate separately. They cannot be denied or suppressed without great suffering. And no matter how well we justify them or “connect the dots, They will always remain irrational. Emotions inspire the actions, gear thinking process in certain directions, define the reaction to both limitation and indulgence. Interaction with the emotional state that I define is how I truly recognise the ego that is Dyavol.Basically, even though I share the same recognisable emotions with you, in the sense that we can all understand the emotions of happiness, love, sadness and fear. And even though emotions forge the identity, distinct experiences and events with these emotions are really what gears to identifying the individual ego from the identical root. Now this may seem obvious yet I bring this up because holding this in mind, you can gain a stronger concept of basic empathic functions. Now with that outlined and the connection of emotions and the individual, Destruction or reforging the individual not only has possiblity but a very practical approach. Now in all sense of realistic results ( excuse unintentional alliteration) empathic destruction upon the ego can really only effective be engaged by a foreign source, hence empathy. I involve empathy in this stage of individual growth, because in my own experimentation in personal advancement, this has produced results that have resonated into the explorations that I have continued today. Obviously the methodology cannot be replicated in writing, so instead I will go over a record of my own foray into this field. This was my experience with my former mentor, Mortose into empathic explorations.

It consisted of two parts: 1. We identified the ego. Who I was, my passions, what I loved and what I hated. Was there a difference in the strength of these feelings? How would I register  pain, misery or suffering? How would I indulge in success, achievement and power? The moral or ethical values I held and the limitations therein. 2.This step was a classic step in what is known in the community as the “khaos Noburu” approach. Basically Khaos outlined a system of the following: – What are your values? Ok now do the opposite. – What do you wear to work? Now wear the opposite. Ectera ectera. The purpose of this exercise and approach was to make the student more adaptable and flexible. Identifying the aspects and value of the student and demanding that I would do something in direct defiance of the standard I had set myself. What Mortose did was ask me to give money to somebody I hated and considered a leech. She wanted me to read the letter of a woman in immense trauma and grief of losing a child, connect with the woman empathically, then respond by insulting the woman and degrading her. Luckilly I was an arrogant prick so the only woman I insulted was Mortose, telling her exactly where she could put the exercise. Though I will stress the emphasis and understanding of said exercise. It is to test the standard of the individual, the result of this will depend on which stage of development the student is at. If they are lacking in self understanding this will serve to destroy the ego, for as stated earlier, this identity is nothing but a lie and a facade. If they have gained that understanding and experience, this exercise will endevour and strengthen the ego in it’s standard and beliefs.

The Sinister

This is a word we should all be familiar with. Of it represents a danger, threat or adversity to the established order, collective a community or individual. The sinister is a nature. One possessed by the individual. It’s arecognition of power and mastery. I do not fear nor deem the powerless or the vacant as “sinister”, do you?

So Sinister? The mastery, threat or Adversary. This is a tool of the Satanist or darksider How do you use it? Well, how do I use it?

The sinister is a weapon upon the modern society which has become a breeding ground of dependency and addiction. The comfort zone is something I’m infamous for rebelling against. This is how I employ “sinister” practices.

But that’s as far as I’ll go in terms of the communal “sinister”.

What I really want to discuss and reflect on is the sinister nature and exploration in the individual. Now I previously described “sinister” as a force of destruction, but reflecting back on it, it is the recognition of a driving force. When somebody is purely driven by what they stand for. When I have an absolute motivation for an ideology it will be sinister or destructive to another ideology. And don’t translate this as the victim of “sinister” as an opposing ideology. More often than not, it’s usually two forces of the identical root. An example of this is St Francis of Assissi, he was a figure in Roman Catholicism known for his drastic and extremist measures for poverty and humility. When this guy found out that one of his “brothers” had around only three coins, Francis threw them into some mud and told the guy to pick them up with his teeth.  But his activism for poverty and equality had a sinister nature to the modern clerical traditions within the RCC, as well as the rising industrial relationships and establishments in Italy at the time. This was a driving force that was deemed a threat. Yet in hindsight grew to define the church again.

It is a heresy. Formed yet unknown. It can be a glorious darkness or an unruled chaos.

Can we apply the same to the individual? Is there the driving force within myself? Or is it a force I must face? Will it destroy me or will it define me? And where will that take me? The sinister is the recognition that I am a complex mechanism of thought and conscience, and through abuse of this beautiful system I have veiled a self deceit. Something to destroy. The sinister is the driving force that would appear obsessive to the observer. That the followings and beliefs I stand for are things evoking fatal pride. Destroying the very conscience that walked the path of self deceit.  I am willing to destroy myself, to destroy an ideology. Through recent time I have grown to welcome others destroy me and what I present. And I am willing to destroy you.

Force and God

This is in response to the sith Grimoire by Kissed by a Shiva and James Adamik

 

The Force.

This is one thing that I’m calling out. Is that since gods exist in history through religion… and so do energy fields… and energy fields are found in science..
therefore an omnipotent force is proven???
Asides from that I did cover this aspect kindof in my “the force and magick”. But basically I was saying that you should either be open to it or not afraid to be open to it. But focusing on the reality, the solid reality of whether or not it exists in this fashion or if I at the least believe that, I didn’t meditate on.

So then I meditated on it.

Okay I get it, this is an issue considering that spirituality has existed throughout all mankind. And the belief in god’s has the same deal. We get the force from star wars, which was a spiritual energy of sorts, we brought it into the community and immediately compared it to preconcieved spirituality and deities. It was inevitable and not a bad thing.

Now I have been a theist, I was neopagan, theistic satanist and I was raised in a Christian house. I’ve witnessed belief structures of gods from several view points and even shared them at one stage.
I’ve also been an atheist of sorts, I don’t believe in a god per se, but that’s really debatable. I believe in spiritual planes to our reality, that spiritual aspects of this world exist, and they are connected and manifested through to the physical. Sometimes you can even get the combination through the use of ideas like “aura” etc.

And I really see no difference in somebody using tao or buddha energy etc as their definition of the Force to somebody using Yahweh or Zeus. In fact I often find it funny that people will say god’s are a redundant idea yet use energy spirituality. To me, I see people restricting “gods” to similar limitations found in man, and I will blame theists for that in the sense that they used man or man like symbols to represent their gods. Though in saying that, yes I do realise that a deity is a seperate awareness found in the spirituality. I think we create that awareness as much as we create the energy. I’m not saying we are gods, I’m saying we create and destroy gods. In essence, we’re better than gods lol.

So you can see that their is perception and upbringing being influences of the force as it were.

Darkness and the individual

This is from the force academy dark aspect. Yet highly reccomended

 

Darkness is about the individual.

We are all bound together. But the darksider knows that, no matter what connections exist, real or perceived, he is his own person, responsible for his own destiny, responsible for shaping his own path.

Darkness is about knowing the individual.

We must cut through the lies we weave around ourselves, we must go beyond the way we shield ourselves. This means untangling knots in the way we think and behave which prevent us from knowing what we are, and acting as we are. We must find out how we think, what we think, what we believe, what we are capable of.

Darkness is within the individual.

We are called to an internal journey. We must explore ourselves, through action and contemplation. We are physical beings, and so exploration of what we are, means placing ourselves in relation to the world, feeling things about the world; passions, beliefs, taking positions, both on the basis of emotion and tactical reason. We are also spiritual beings, and truth is not to be found simply by becoming aware of behaviour; we must become aware of those desires which may only enter our consciousness on occasion; for example when we stripped bare by a traumatic happening, or suddenly feel alone in the night, or are suddenly joyful. Through meditation, contemplation and prayer, we can begin to look within to find our spiritual self, and see things with an eye which is not purely material; an eye which knows, for example, that music is not simply a pleasurable aural sensation, but an experience which affects the whole individual.

Darkness is explored by the individual.

The map of the world has been filled. The land is claimed, and each feature has been given its name. And yet, the world around us is entirely new to us. Certainly, we walk along our street, find our way along familiar paths. And yet, we are unaware. Not mindful of the collage of feelings, actions, of things being constructed and broken all around us. We are not mindful of the reality within which we exist, but move, confident that we know our way around a place we have never even dared to look at. Each drip of paint, each flyposter, each blade of grass has meaning for us to find, and we are connected, as though by an umbilical cord, to the world around us; the force within us reaches out to make itself a manifest consciousness in the world, and so the self becomes joined to, and dependant on the universe in which it is placed. Everything we experience is a brother and a sister to us, and yet we ignore it. It is shrouded in unknowing. We must peer into this darkness.

Darkness is individual.

It falls to each of us to discover what darkness is for themselves. To piece together the mosaic from brief glimpses of things we fear and things we desire. To shape our own aspirations, to walk on our own journey. Certainly, there are times when we crave companionship on the journey, times when we seek hands to hold. But ultimately, we must confront the self. We cannot offer a public dissection of a corpse, so that all can understand the anatomy of darkness. Darkness has an anatomy which is constructed differently for each person. Therefore, the only answers are the ones you can find yourself. Certainly, the world has tools to offer; for example, psychoanalysis, meditation, prayer, art; all of these allow us to find ways of expressing and exploring what the self means. So, while it is worthwhile to learn and understand methods of exploration, and we hope that the dark path at this academy will help you to equip yourself with such tools, ultimately, you must pick up these tools; you must explore yourself, you must explore your universe. Look into the dark unexplored and see what might make itself known.

Chaos Vs Harmony

Chaos vs Harmony

NOTE = Some will argue this is very similar to my last  post. It is. This has the same principle in mind, sure. Just different  application. Both are neccassary in my opinion.

These are two forces in  nature. The very definition of them kinda contradict each other. And since y’all  love the dictionary. I searched for them:

har·mo·ny
[hahr-muh-nee] Show IPA

noun, plural har·mo·nies.
1.
agreement;  accord; harmonious relations.

2.
a consistent, orderly, or pleasing  arrangement of parts; congruity.

3.
Music.
a.
any  simultaneous combination of tones.

b.
the simultaneous combination  of tones, especially when blended into chords pleasing to the ear; chordal  structure, as distinguished from melody and rhythm.

c.
the science  of the structure, relations, and practical combination of chords.

4.
an arrangement of the contents of the Gospels, either of all four or of the  first three, designed to show their parallelism, mutual relations, and  differences.

chaos
Use Chaos in a sentence

cha·os
[key-os] Show IPA

noun
1.
a state of utter confusion or disorder; a total lack of  organization or order.

2.
any confused, disorderly mass: a chaos of  meaningless phrases.

3.
the infinity of space or formless matter  supposed to have preceded the existence of the ordered universe.

4.
( initial capital letter ) the personification of this in any of several  ancient Greek myths.

5.
Obsolete . a chasm or abyss.

So basically they obviously contradict each other.  It’s in their very character. In the codes etc. Harmony is balance and  organisation. Chaos is disruption, simple as that.

But, are they  really against each other? Don’t opposites attract?

I don’t  know… but I will say that we do pit them up against each other an awful lot.  Or at least , I do. I’m just asking should we?

I’ll illustrate with a  story:

there’s two guys, same job, different job it doesn’t really  matter.

One guy is harmony, they’re married got a good job or maybe not.  Let’s just say they have an organised lifestyle. They do their job, pay their  bills and live their life according to a routine. They like the routine, love it  even. They use this routine to improve themselves, they look at the job they do  and say stuff like “I’ll do it better next time” or they fail and say the  same.
They organise everything. Keep it simple and tidy. They love it. It’s  their passion, it brings them joy and their lifestyle of routine and balance  lets them grow and become stronger.

Then there’s the other guy, Chaos.  They’ve had many different jobs and they don’t like organisation. They don’t  live by it. One day Chaos wakes up late and rushes to work. The other day they  wake up early and goes for a run. The next, they wake up early but decides to  watch the news instead. Then they just don’t really bother and sleeps until they  have to for a few days.A week later, they wakes up early, and decides to go for  a run, but this time they run faster and longer. The only way they choses an  activity is if it interests them. The only way the stops an activity is if their  interest is disrupted by something else and so they’ll go do that  instead.
They don’t have a direct goal to improve. Then can and do improve.  But they’re main goal is action, they are always creating, destroying or  interacting with their environment. They may not always improve it, but they do  interact with it at all times. As they also react from their environment at all  times. They are in a constant state of change and action.

Then one day,  something bad happens. Harmony get’s stressed and starts to panick. They hold  onto their routine and try to muscle through it. Chaos just reacts and takes the  damage, dealing more out. The damage he deals out however, affects Harmony. It  hurt’s their routine, the panick is getting worse for them. They are stressing  out, systems are being made to compensate for everything so nothing gets harmed.  A simple organisation is not becoming a beaurocracy full of self deciet and  fear.

What does Chaos do? What Chaos always does. They disrupted  Harmony again. They said “Shut up and take a deep breath”. Take a break from  your routine. Accept the damage and change for a little while and then get back  to it. Harmony does this and accepts the scars. They freak out and blow steam  then finally come together again. They can do their job now. They can live their  routine again. Improve themselves again because they accepted a little  chaos.

This is saying this. If you want Harmony, that’s great. But that  harmony will become suffering if you cling to it too tightly, if you use it as a  defense mechanism. Because that ain’t balance anymore. That’s just fear,  insecurity.

I’m trying to say this. Let a little chaos in your life. Bad  things are gonna happen to you. I promise you. You can’t cling to routine and  “”harmony”” during that. Let the shit fall. Wallow in it. Embrace a chaos, a  randomness. You can enjoy it or not, just do something different and watch your  routine. Blow the steam off. Then sure, go back to it.
