In this situation one has to understand there is an aspect which is called your internal life. Spiritual Satanism concerns this life, and one has to transform and evolve in this life.AskSatanOperator wrote: ↑Thu Jan 12, 2023 11:42 am...
1- How do you deal with being a Satanist while having a wife, kids, friends? (I’ve suspected that the default might be loneliness and outcast tendencies for most here, as it was for me when the weight of truth fell on my heart, completely alone*physically*, am I wrong?)
There is no need for boasting, raising a flag, going into a crusade or anything like this when you are a Spiritual Satanist. Satan explicitly explains why in the Al Jilwah. The time for this thing is not yet rife.
By taking certain measures on one's personal space and privacy, one can practice Spiritual Satanism at the fullest. This clearly requires one skill that develops out of the need to both adhere to a highly spiritual and devotional path while simultaneously accepting the fact one has to live their life.
There is no need for a pointless rebellion or to go around to try to convince others or something, a practice also commonly done by people who have not much progression into the path. Some of us have to fight at the social fronts but not everyone does.
One has to think over what their situation and reasons are, and where they stand and where they want to go in life, then make a sort of an adjustment plan that will be adapting itself in one's life.
Kids, work and a family life do give you more things in your plate but you can always do adjustments in your time. Example "baby I will take the kids from school today". You arrive 15 minutes late, sit somewhere closeby on the bench, and do your exercises. Then, you go to pick up your children.
Also, likely nobody will tell you you are insane in most countries for doing a Yoga session, if you justify this that it's done for reasons of health, for example. "Baby after researching it I think Yoga will fix my back." The list goes.
You have to be a little creative with the reasoning, and certainly not a boastful brat or aggressor to people, as people will likely attack for things they do not understand, but accept things that they can understand.
There are Spiritual Satanists with 4 kids and they run everything fine, advancing steadily and happily anyway. Willpower and planning things around is the key.
Some of us are open, and that comes at a cost for us. Yet those who are not open, you can always say things like that you are interested in Buddhism or even Esoteric Christianity. In Islamic Nations, one must say nothing, as there are endless people that can do you exceptional harm if you do that.
There are places to go to practice, like a park, inside your car, in a garden, or when you take lone time. One has to cycle around these.
My first years as a Spiritual Satanist I didn't have a lot of space and had a life of endless errands. There were times I would pretend I was having a shower for 30 minutes, and it was only really 2 minutes. Then, time was saved 15 minutes before bed and so on. Complex as this might be, one can adjust this around the schedules of other people too.
This one is tricky. You can use people's sleeping hours, or time when they shower, and it all depends what type of people you have around yourself. The degree of understanding is also the degree of what you can do in that regard.AskSatanOperator wrote: ↑Thu Jan 12, 2023 11:42 am3- If you are traveling a lot, staying at friends place maybe, or going out as can be necessary for a social gathering, party or business venture etc. How do you maintain your practice? Are such things feasible for a Satanist to be able to do?(This is near impossible without masquerading your beliefs and that you are a “Devout Hindu” as the daily practice will suggest to others and vocalizing such to those you meet, something I’m starting to think can help me remove fear and shying away from opportunities and desires by being more “open” to tall about the “hinduism front”)
It is a skill one can develop. If someone for example goes for groceries, you can shove in 15 minutes of practice. You can become better at this when you know exactly the time things take.
Saying that you are a Hindu will work in most Nations no problem whatsoever.
That is a big thing here. Yes, memorizing these is a very powerful tool. The same goes for affirmations that you regularly do. This makes you independent in your meditation practice and can give you tremendous advantages especially where space, time and difficulties of meditation are concerned. Memorizing mantras, Rituals and other things is very difficult, but it is very powerful.
Airport lounges and other places like this can be your friend, but you will need the proper space. Nobody keeps you for example between your flights to go outside of the airport, or sit on the least crowded coffee shop and do your mantras very silently, or even mentally, while pretending that you are speaking to your headpiece. If people see you with a headpiece, they generally will not approach you.
Memorization is a gift for some, and for others, it is impossible. But if you constantly repeat things and do meditations again and again, you will start remembering all of it just because you have repeated it a giant amount of times. This type of habituation can be really handy when you seek to advance, it saves a lot of time and dependency on many external means.
That is not necessary to be one's life, yet quite a few people might choose this life for many different reasons, ranging from planetary to reasons of devotion, or because simply one can't be assed to have their time spent all day on things that one no longer interest someone in the case of extensive periods of advancement.AskSatanOperator wrote: ↑Thu Jan 12, 2023 11:42 am5- Are you extremely private and also lonely in a physical sense? (Would like to make poll of this, I really don’t know how many people fall in this category, again when I hear of people raising a family, friends, and partners and such I’m always shocked and skeptical that it’s true with the nature of our beliefs and what we do)
Awareness of a cost here can be serious, for example, some people can afford this [literally afford it financially or in other ways] and other people simply cannot.
The True Nature of our beliefs is that we follow the natural course of affairs. Every Spiritual Satanist can adjust the practices and statuses of Spiritual Satanism into your life and on the pattern of your own existence. One then finds their path further by the guidance of the Demons, and through inner healing you progressively ascent and become a better and more healed person.
I open of course this thread for discussion as others can also share excellent and helpful ideas.
