The Black Flame
Not everyone is born with the BLACK FLAME within, most people do not have this DARK GIFT. THE BLACK FLAME is what makes us different from most of society which tends to follow the RIGHT-HAND PATH. We are by nature on the LEFT-HAND PATH, we are goats, not sheep. Those of us who are born with this tend to be SATANISTS, DARK PAGANS, or LEFT-HAND PATH WITCHES. We often separate ourselves from the rest of society and tend to only associate with others of like mind. The BLACK FLAME does not make us evil it makes us individualists. We are of our own GODS and GODDESSES and do not seek one outside ourselves. Mathew 6:24 says No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one and love the other; or else he will hold to one, and despise the other, Ye can not serve god and Mammon. This applies directly to us. The God Mammon is commonly thought to mean money or material wealth. What’s wrong with material wealth??? Money is not the root of all evil, the lack of money is. Why worship a deity outside of ourselves when we can be our own redeemers. We do not bow to societal norms we are its adversary, this is why we distance ourselves from the herd and from heard like behavior.
From a very early age, I was drawn to late-night horror movies and anything having to do with the occult. As I grew older I began to understand why I was drawn to this. It has to do with the FREE THINKER, THE ICONICAST, THE OTHER, THE OUTSIDER, and THE REBEL. Hollywood usually shows these characters as being evil but we should always remember that EVIL spelled backward is LIVE. It is our duty to LIVE a life that is in harmony with our own true will and nature and not the dictates of others.
I’m carnal by nature and live my life from an epicurean point of view. Those of us born with THE BLACK FLAME are lovers of luxury, and sensual pleasures. We have luxurious tastes and habits that are expressed in our tastes when it comes to eating and drinking. This is why the Christians call us sinners. Please understand that this does not mean we are hedonists because for them (The hedonist) pleasure is the most important thing but too much of a good thing applied the wrong way brings about self-destruction.
Note: Please see my essay on The Dark Side of The Force. A lot of the information in that essay is very similar to this one and overlaps with what is written here.
