superb post, ankhhape


That's because it's an unattributed quote almost word for word from Qabalah, Qliphoth, and Goetic Magic, a left-hand leaning book.

the post being referred to (shame on you lazy child):

QUOTE

"In my understandings The Fall represents mankind's descentl into materialism. This Fall shields us from the spiritual world and opens an Abyss between Man and the Divine. The Right Hand Path of traditional Qabalah aims to restore the original harmonic relation between man and the Divine.

The Left Hand Path fulfills and deepens the Fall. The Dark Adept continues the Fall from the Abrahamic God to reach individual divinity.
The reason behind the Fall is often described as being hubris, man's search for knowledge and forces that originally were not meant for him to acquire. The Left Hand Path leads to a second birth, a spiritual rebirth as a god.

The original Tree of Life did not contain the material world, instead the non-Sephira Daath existed., united by paths with Kether (above), Chokmah, Binah, Geburah and Tiphareth (below).

Lucifer-Daath, the original Serpent, represents the divine force of creation that is able to carry out the idea of creation.
Lucifer-Daath sinks down to man's level and awakens the power of creation and the sexual energy in man. Thus, man can reach the knowledge which was previously only accessible to God.

The adepts of the Left Hand Path glorify the Fall and allow the destruction to be fulfilled. Leading away from the Tree of Life and further into the Tree of Knowledge."


um, and your point?

I'm not a fan of monotheism, or the overt dualism which it tends to engender, but yeah that is a nice quoted section there.
If I look at my path through the lens of my former religion, it looks very much as ankhhape describes.
I do try to avoid devoting much time to looking at things through the lens of my former faith though, generally speaking.

One of the reasons of lacking well known LHP practicianers is, it's unlikely they would reveal themselves to the public.
Because of the stigmas and prejudices attached to the label, LHP, there's not much benefit for the LHP occultist to come out of closet.
If you are an accomplished LHP occultist, what's there for you when you come out?
I can't think of any.
For that reason (and other reasons), I think majority of them just stay invisible from the public, i.e.not coming out of closet.

Greetings!
I'm not sure that I agree with you Aleph. It has been my experience while here on this Forum to encounter many who flock to the LHP as opposed to RHP. Younger people tend toward this as they are still in a formative aspect in their lives (development of self, ego, etc.) which leads them to find themselves delving into practices that accentuate solidification. They are ever mindful of their sexuality and the need to accumulate. After all, romanticization of such things as Vampirism etc. is very moderne... But I also find that this way of thinking about LHP/RHP very misleading. It's like dropping a gray filter over the 'problem' and not recognizing that Magic knows no limitations. We develop throughout our lives as intellects. It is an oversimplification (...LOL, speaking of oversimplifications!...) to try to categorize ones life (path) by subgrouping under these titles...IMHO! As I've gotten (inevitably) older I find that certain material things are no longer important, my thoughts run more to 'WHAT'S NEXT?' and that my views of dispercion into godhead become more pronounced. You will find that ANY path that finds you so totally immersed as to not see some merit in the other aspects of thought as to be ultimately destructive. The trancendence of ego doesn't necesarily mean RHP nor does sex magic consign you to LHP. When we worship at the Altars of Excess we are courting the stagnation of ourselves and it is that very stagnation that leads to the falling into the abyss.
People on either path fail in their magic because of a host of reasons...one is laziness and laxity of intention! "do you know of any way that I can have a successful evocation of Umpity-Squat without the use of candles...books...incense...study...meditation...any effort at all...including PATIENCE...???" "why doesn't my spellcasting lead to anything?" the lists are legion. I like this one..."would you please tell me in step by step detail how to make a servitor?" Dear Gods! Then, if you actually acquiesse to this plea you will hear "...but it is inconvenient for me to do [this] or [that], are there any substitutes for doing those things?" Aaaargh! Here, on an occult Forum, on the Internet, they don't know how to research something...? *sigh* I've spent over fourty years studying the subject and am under the distinct impression that I know less than I did at my inception! I still waffle back and forth between aspects of LHP and RHP, not willing to become fixed in that 'paradigm' (gods, I hate that word!) So concludes a rant (I apologize) within a decent discussion of LHP and RHP. I hope that my misarticulations haven't muddied the waters and/or missed the mark? Cheers!

Bravo!
