    Hello Religious forum(ites) of the Left Hand Path of God. I've come back to ask some questions especially about Dark religion. Today I'd like to have a conversation about being a Dark metaphysician and having empathy/values.

    As LHPers what would you say are the underlying values of most people on the path?

    What are the personal values of your practice?

    How do you interact with people of a similar, dark path as your own but have different cultural influences in their satanic practice? (Such as a Nordic Satanist interacting with a Voudou practitioner.)

    Is Satan an empath to a certain extent?

    Of course you can have empathy/values. Just make sure that you critically examine any values you hold as being valuable and of benefit and you make the conscious decision to hold them. In other words, don't just blindly follow the herd without examining why the herd does what it does without question.

    BTW, what exactly do you mean by God and Satan in your OP? (These concepts certainly are not required to be LHP.)

    To me I think Satan is both symbol and energy. Mostly symbolic because I don't have a whole lot of energetic experience. There was one time when I think I might have encountered a demon energy wise (oddly enough in church).

    As far as God is concerned, I've meditated on the nature of god before and based upon those sessions what was revealed to me was that God is nature, or symbolic of nature. And where does nature end and begin? I can't define that.

    I'm working primarily with the culture I'm surrounded by. So while I do respect the Loa of the Voudou, I don't have any experience with them. Am I open to it? Well, possibly.

    Thank you for taking interest in what I have to say.

    You see, I realize that herd conformity is a cardinal sin of Satanists. The problem is I would also say that some Christians would say the same thing about following people. At the same time they follow a God that says the same as whatever the minister says. Lol.

    Basically critical thinking guided by individualism and empathy can coexist is your point, correct?

    "Left Hand Path of God" . . . you're going to have to explain that one to me! We are on the LHP because we know there is no 'God', other than the one Within (Greater Self).

    "Dark religion" . . . there's another one needing explanation, is this like some dimly lit religious practice or something?

    "Dark metaphysician" . . . maybe just define how you're using the word 'Dark', that might clear things up.
    What I personally find of value on the Western Left Hand Path is Self, my Greater Self along with assisting others to their realization of Self.

    "What are the personal values of your practice?" . . . I don't understand what you are asking.
    I interact with others on similar paths as myself exactly the way I am interacting with you right now.

    Satan is an archetype . . . empaths are make-believe.

    If you are an individualist, you have high regard for individuals, no? How would empathy for an individual not be part of individualism then? It's the collectivists who find the "collateral damage" of individuals being harmed to be acceptable--all in the name of "the greater good."

    While empathy may be real and ok to feel, compassion (skillfulness in helping others) is much more useful than just plain empathy.

    ^Here's kind of where I'm coming from.
    Is there anything different that you value from other LHPers?

    Dark religion is basically the LHP. Unless it's not, and then I don't know what it is.

    No not necessarily, Individualism is the the step to being independent on your own way. Their is no guide in my opinion on these two words of definition. You develop your critical thinking on your own, you can accept it or be like someone who chooses to stick with the herd by having a robotic brain.

    Hi there since babes I'am Adrianna and I'am also obviously new to this Religious Forum. And I would have to say that as a Satanist that we Satanists do share most immoral values. Like for an example being drawn to the darker things in life and celebrating terrible things dealing with the afterlife. Which are viewed as unacceptable and taboo to regular and boring mundane vanilla society.

    However lovelies I'am an Theistic Satanist and Pagan so huns I view Satanist/The Devil as my Lord and Saviour despite worshipping other entities of own my choosing. And own free will darlings which means that I'am an Unconventional Devil Enthusiast/Unorthodox Satan Worshiper. Which puts me in a gray area that leaves me as kind of an Outsider/Social Stigma despite my religious alignment in my own religious community.

    I'am a Feminist and Bisexual Female Person and I'am not silent and sweet like other Religious Women. Especially in Satanism/Lucieranism so naturally that puts me in great conflict with other Fellow Occultists. Therefore I'am not complaining about this Topic but I'am simply speaking out about The Hidden Double Standards. In The Left Hand Path/Satanism or even Luciferansim so that others can fully understand.
