Many people ask about Satan. Is He real, what He is, how do I see Him. It is about time to finally place it on the site. Note that all things in section ‘My beliefs’ reflect my views only, not satanism in general (there is no unanimous set of beliefs in satanism, especially in theistic satanism). Make of it what you want. If you agree, good. If you don’t, great, it’s always good to have your own mind on a topic.
As you might noticed from other articles, I am a pantheist/panetheist, hermeticism (hermetic) based. I don’t believe in christian mythology, cosmology or anything alike. How could I believe in Satan then? That’s a bit complicated, let me elaborate then.
Satan as a mythical figure is an invention of Christianity (or abrahamic faiths). The idea of Satan and evil evolved and till now it is present and linked in western culture no matter whether you are christian or not. It became an archetype. Satan represents certain qualities, ideas and values (explained in article Satanism – What is it?). When I think of them I attract spiritual energy that corresponds to them so in fact, this energy, this being, this entity have all qualities of Satan as christians see Him so practically IT IS SATAN! Only that there is no grand fight between good and evil, no dualism, because good and evil don’t exists objectively. I don’t equal Satan with the All as some pantheists do. That’s bullshit for me. Satan is a very distinctive, spiritual higher entity (a deity) that can link with our mind, influence us, inspire us. Satan encourages me to express my divine nature, He’s part of me but He exists also apart of me. He is a personal entity so yes, Satan does exist. I met Him (not in a body but as a spiritual consciousness) and have personal contact with Him. And so do demons exist.
When one taps with a mind into Satan’s energy, it is Satan as christian portrays him. But He is also much more! So Satan as I see Him is a part of the whole in the hermetic system, but not a figure of christian myths, which are just that – myths. Myths aren’t real, they can hold some truths, but they usually are allegories of complex topics, they aren’t literal truth, no historical facts (although some historic elements might be there).
Satan for me is my love, my inspiration, through him I achieve my divine state!
