love and service

Would it surprise people that love and service could be some of the most important things for a Satanist? Not that they have to be, but that they are in this case? Or wholeness?

I take some things as given, such as that all that we do is selfish at some level (and nothing wrong with that), that we seek gratification and fulfilment. Also that your individual choice with what you do with your life, and how, is sacred, within the boundaries of your own sphere (so you don’t fuck over others, because they also are sovereign individuals). You are the boss of your life.

But if service gives you gratification and fulfilment, then service it is (though you decide the terms). And love and devotion, ditto.

Of course it has to be acknowledged that mercy can only be exercised from a position of strength. Don’t make the mistake of serving yourself up as the plat du jour. No, no. And no “duty”, no “virtue” in the Christian sense. Absolutely no self-denial.

This self is big enough to want to play, and make it the game of life.

All the colours and tastes.
