The Left-Hand Path

[from ]

Subject: The Left-Hand Path
   by Kevin C. Phantom
   Being a Black Magician, I feel it nesasary to define the
   between a Right-Hand Path religion and a Left-Hand Path religion.
   I will begin by explaining the goals of the RHP. The RHP is
   with submiting ones self, psyche,or soul to the will of the
   Universe or to nature or to a god or whatever. They belive that
   submiting ones self to the will of a higher being or force that
   will ultimatly achive a "NIRVANA" or "heaven" like state of
   Most practitioners of the RHP feel themselves to be inferior to
   forces of nature, and most are correct in this assumption, so it
   that  they find that following the RHP is a lot less difficult
   following the LHP. Today there are many religions that belive in
   complete submission to a higher being or god-like creature. Among
   is Judaism(the very definition means submission) Christianity,
   Wicca, Hindu etc... The fact is that most people are and will
   to travel along the RHP whether or not they conciously
   acknowledge it.
   The Left-Hand Path is based on individuating ones self against
   Universe. We belive in the strengh of our own isolsolae Will to
   change in the objective universe. We look at ourselves as
   seperate and
   independant entities apart from the objective universe.
   We see no need for sumission and shun terms such as equality. I
   find it
   degrading to say to two different individuals that they are
   the same.The Left-Hand Path promotes a rational enjoyment of life
   and becoming all that one is capable of becoming and beyond. For
   were meant to be trancended. We belive in strength, pride and all
   of the
   things that the RHP considers to be "corrupt" or "evil". In
   short, the
   LHP is far more difficult to travel than that of the RHP.
   Both paths are being practiced conciously in the universe. You
   will have
   to decide which path your goals falls into. In this as in all
   the choice is yours.
