Announcements / Forum Revival 2018!
« on: October 24, 2018, 02:42:02 am »
Just for the record  ;D

Recently, Chovexano stepped down as Forum Admin, and Seisatsu took his place. All the data was migrated to his servers and he's now the new admin. All of this was said on FB, but I want to have it here as well ;) .

Thanks a lot to both for all the work you did and do for the DKMU  :) 8)

The DKMU Vault / Chelseanacht 2018 with a thousand cranes
« on: July 10, 2018, 12:54:12 am »
Hi everyone :)

Seisatsu suggested a project for this year's Chelseanacht. Here is the proposal:

"Chelseanacht Project
 Thousand Origami Cranes
 In which we construct "Senbazuru", the ancient Japanese magickal wish granting device, with a DKMU twist.
 VOLUNTEERS NEEDED, REGISTER IN THE COMMENTS
 "Thousand Origami Cranes (千羽鶴 Senbazuru) is a group of one thousand origami paper cranes (折鶴 orizuru) held together by strings. An ancient Japanese legend promises that anyone who folds a thousand origami cranes will be granted a wish by the gods." - Wikipedia
 This project will borrow some ancient Japanese magick, and combine it with the versatile LS network, to create a one-shot collaborative wish granting device which will be loaded with DKMU's mission statement.
 The work of folding one thousand origami cranes will be divided between the volunteers. All cranes must be folded by the 17th. Each crane should have the Linking Sigil marked on the inner side of the paper, so it is folded into the crane. While folding each crane, imbue it with your intent and wish for a world filled with magick and belief in magick, and the rending of the veil. The Linking Sigil will be our string, tying all of the thousand cranes together to form the mythical ancient Japanese wish granting device, the Senbazuru.
 I will design the ritual for the 17th in the coming days. The ritual will be to "fire off" the Senbazuru. After each volunteer performs the ritual with their cranes, the cranes will be placed around the volunteers' neighborhoods to spread any residual energy (and the LS) over a wide area.
 If you would like to volunteer, please post below. Based on the number of volunteers in the next few days, I will throw out a number for how many cranes we must each fold. Late volunteers should fold the same number of cranes, so we have extras in case anyone falls behind."

see https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/One_thousand_origami_cranes for more info on the tradition.

I know that there are some folks who don't read FB at all, so I put it here.

Here's how to make a crane :) https://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/2/2f/Tsuru_wiki.svg

Anyone up to join?

Hi everyone!

I had a debate with some Catholics and want to share an idea I had there -- though it is probably not original  ;D Here comes:

__________________
"It is possible to hold long-term, well-considered desires which are contrary to your doctrine and thus -- on your view -- sinful. One can for example be a proud thief. You would have the thief reject his desire and instead choose to live according to Catholic desires -- "What would Jesus do?" However, if one's long-term well-considered desire are not in harmony with "Jesus' desires", I would say that one literally *cannot live* according to Jesus. If one tries, one has given up one's *own* life to become an imitation of Jesus. Contrary to Catholicism, one does not Gain Life Eternal, but rather *looses life* completely!

Thus, even on Catholicism being true, Hell seems *preferable* because then I at least get to *live* (properly understood as living *my way*) for *a while* as opposed to *not at all* by following Jesus instead of myself. The harshness of this position surprises even me :)

Now, of course you can directly deny my point -- "God being Truth and Goodness, being an imitation of Jesus just *is* the best way to live one's life". And what can I say to you? Take Satan as a role model! He chose damnation because that gives him at least a *bit* of *his own life*. He'd rather *die* his way *later*, than live someone else's way, since the latter option means he'd never *actually* live *at all*. Have you no Pride?"
__________________
Now, this is just as true for any other source of desires except for one's own -- the desires of an Ideology, a concrete politician, Leftism, the White race, Humanity... It really doesn't matter. On this view, you either Live Your Way, or you do not live.

What do you think?

General Occultism / AhavahAinSoph on Finding one's True Will
« on: December 20, 2017, 02:18:24 am »
Hi everyone :)

Here's a conversation I had with AhavahAinSoph on the IRC that I really find worth keeping. About how to actually go about finding that True Will that everyone talks about  ;D

09:25    A.    I finally understand.. I finally understand strength.
09:25    A.    I finally understand the lesson of geburah
09:26    M.    Oh! Congratulations!
09:26    MuadDib    I doubt it ahavah, you will look at it again later and discover many more lessons :P
09:26    A.    I was looking at my family, at my mother and my granfathers
09:27    A.    And all of them hedged their bets, settled. The weight of the world broke them.
09:27    A.    My grandfathers had higher iqs than me, my family begins life with incredible potential
09:28    A.    And they sidetrack it, because of this feeling of responsibility
09:28    A.    Of "Possibility"
09:28    A.    Of "Plausibility"
09:29    A.    All of them broke when they decided they had to dream inside the world.
09:29    A.    But it's like crowley said
09:29    jimlad    it's like to be said.
09:30    A.    "Do what you Will, then do nothing else"
09:30    A.    There is no settlement
09:30    A.    There is no other choice. You must be you
09:30    A.    No matter the pressures you face
09:30    A.    No matter the hardships
09:30    A.    No matter what the world throws at you
09:30    A.    And how many people tell you how dangerous it is
09:31    MuadDib    I was reading that kind of backwards and was about to accuse you of becoming a thelemite until I realized you were actually quoting crowley
09:31    A.    Tipharet is the Will, Guburah is sharpening that Will into steel. The ironclad will.
09:32    M.    Ah, that is relevant to a question I ponder :) Is The Will,, is the "You" that "you must be" a *choice* or a *discovery*?
09:35    A.    It is a discovery
09:35    A.    What you do with it is a choice
09:35    A.    But it must be YOUR choice
09:35    A.    An expression of your heart
09:36    A.    Not of the world and its circumstances
09:36    A.    When you understand who you are
09:36    A.    You must focus on it like the mindfulness you were just asking about
09:36    A.    Until it fills everything
09:37    A.    Until it consumes your body, until it eats who you were. Until it burns off all of the impurity.
09:37    A.    This is the reddening.
09:38    M.    But isn't it sad that everyone is to have a *set purpose* already determined, and and only either chose to follow it or be mistaken?
09:38    A.    No, you can't actually violate your true will, your heart
09:39    A.    And also, I don't see how it would be sad
09:39    A.    You make it, it is an expression of your whole soul.
09:39    A.    The total of yourself throughout time
09:39    A.    It's the meta determinism we were talking about the other day, when you coined that phrase
09:40    A.    We create our soul, we create god, and we create what we are determined to do every day
09:40    M.    waitwait. Apparently people can violate their true will -- this is exactly what you were sayung -- "they sidetrack it"
09:40    A.    It's not a perfect expression. It's concealled
09:40    A.    It's not a violation, it's a lens, a limit.
09:40    M.    ah, that makes more sense
09:41    A.    My mother for instance
09:41    M.    But clearly, Crowley's  "Do what you Will, then do nothing else" means that this is what you *should* do, it is also something you *can* do, but is clearly *not
09:41    A.    I figured out her true will, kind of.
09:41    M.     something you *automatically do
09:41    A.    It's about conscious awareness
09:41    A.    Not about whether or not you can fail.
09:42    A.    Or choose not to do the thing
09:42    A.    "Do what thou wilt, then do nothing else" is an expression of cus.
09:42    A.    focus*
09:42    A.    "Do what thou wilt" is an expression of understanding
09:42    M.    Yes, but my question is focus on what?
09:42    A.    Of knowledge, and action
09:42    A.    On who you are.
09:43    A.    What you are made of.
09:43    A.    The discovery of the hga, and the understanding of "True Will" and the idea of the "Ruach" is all the same idea, and it is the root of yourself
09:44    A.    The point that all other things you may do come from
09:44    A.    Understand the root. Grab the sword by the hilt.
09:44    A.    Then wield it
09:46    A.    "Who you are" and "Why" are considerations that should be the basis of your decision making process constantly and at all times once you figure out what the answers are.
09:48    M.    I totalla agree with you on the Constant Focus, Do nothing else etc etc. parts. Absolutely. My doubt lies solely with the *discovery*
09:48    A.    First you discover who you are, you accomplish the great work, understanding the root of your being. You make the stone, you dig through all the base materia, burn it, wash it, dry it, let it ferment.
09:49    M.    In my view, the True Will has to be a *choice* -- you pick something you want to do with this life, and then you throw all your strength at it.
09:49    A.    No.
09:49    A.    It is much deeper than a choice
09:49    A.    It is an unconscious root, where all the consciousness stems from
09:49    M.    In the discovery-view I always run into walls :D What if I *understand* falsely? What is I don't llike what I find etc.
09:49    A.    Any choice you can make follows it.
09:50    A.    It isn't something you won't like, because that would violate the very idea of it.
09:50    A.    You can't understand falsely. There will be many times that you think you know, that's what Hod is, the knowing that is incomplete
09:50    A.    But you will not misunderstand.
09:51    A.    When it clicks, it will click utterly.
09:51    A.    When you're there, you will know.
09:51    A.    It will all suddenly make sense
09:51    A.    You, the world, everything
09:52    A.    I've compared it before to "Seeing the sunrise for the first time when living in a world of darkness"
09:52    A.    Everything that was hazy before
09:52    jimlad    was that you don't when you've had before. 3 him, always coming.
09:52    A.    suddenly snaps into sharp focus
09:52    A.    And it's so much more beautiful than the shadowy images made it appear to be.
09:53    A.    You have to remember that this is what MAKES your ego
09:53    A.    It's what assembles it
09:54    A.    You can't have a dislike of it, because it MAKES your choices and your preferences
09:54    A.    All of them depend on it
09:54    A.    And are made because of it
09:54    A.    Just unconsciously.
09:54    jimlad    i'm just gonna do whatever he says proves nicolas cage is a long winged oceanic bird.
09:56    M.    If I take that perspective I am left undecided -- my mind wants to do different, exclusive things
09:56    A.    Chase one decision down the rabbit hole
09:57    A.    Take one choice in your life
09:57    A.    And ask yourself a question: "Why"
09:57    jimlad    i ask you a question?
09:57    A.    Then ask why to the answer
09:57    A.    Then again
09:57    A.    And again, til you cant
09:57    A.    Then pick another thread
09:57    A.    And untie it
09:57    A.    Why
09:57    A.    Why
09:57    A.    Why
09:57    A.    Keep going, take a third thing
09:57    A.    Unravel it too
09:57    A.    Why
09:57    A.    Why
09:57    A.    Why
09:57    A.    Why
09:57    A.    Why
09:57    A.    Keep going
09:57    A.    Until you hit the root
09:58    A.    Be honest with yourself
09:58    A.    And don't stop
09:58    A.    You won't hit the root til your entire world is rocked from the understanding
09:58    A.    So keep
09:58    A.    Going
09:59    A.    One thread after another
09:59    A.    And eventually you'll be able to see all the threads, and how they connect
09:59    A.    Then you'll find where they all come from
09:59    A.    THAT is what you're looking for
09:59    A.    The key to not getting caught in false knowledge here is to not stop somewhere arbitrary
09:59    A.    Relentlessly chase it down
10:00    A.    Until you can't chase anymore, and keep going
10:00    A.    Rip yourself apart to find the gold in the center if you have to. Let nothing stop you
10:00    A.    Not you, nor the world, nor anything else
10:00    A.    Find
10:00    A.    The
10:00    A.    Gold
10:00    A.    Why
10:00    A.    Why
10:00    A.    Why
10:00    A.    Why
10:01    A.    It's worth EVERY BIT of the hardship, of the rawness, of the pain.
10:01    jimlad    i don't feel manic, but when it comes off as nonsense but if you will find the zohar if it's worth.
10:01    A.    It's in everything you do
10:01    A.    And everything you do is an expression of it
10:01    A.    So just pick a thread
10:01    A.    And start untying
10:01    A.    And don't stop
10:02    A.    Until you have the answer t the question "Who am I"
10:02    A.    And THAT is where the source of the mage's power lies.
10:03    M.    You're making very good points (you should make a forum post ;) ) -- But I cannot truly follow. When I ask your Why I quickly come to the answer "Because I'll enjoy it" and then that's it :D
10:03    A.    Why will you enjoy it.
10:03    A.    What do you enjoy about it?
10:03    M.    Or rather "Because I think I'll enjoy it"
10:03    A.    Why?
10:03    A.    That's not a termination point.
10:03    A.    Pick apart your enjoyment
10:04    A.    Dissect it.
10:04    M.    ah, "Because I'm the kind of person who enjoys such an activity"?
10:06    A.    Why, what do you enjoy about it?
10:06    A.    What about it makes you enjoy it
10:06    A.    What does that say about you?
10:06    M.    Ah, that helps :)
[...]
11:05   M.   So you keep asking and asking, backtracking from dead ends etc. until something "obviously clicks", yes?
11:05   jimlad   until you have to keep more of that.
11:06   A.   Yeah, and it'll be REALLY OBVIOUS.
11:06   A.   Just keep going though
11:07   A.   Don't worry about "How will I know" because if you have to ask, then you haven't hit root
11:07   A.   All that anticipation is more energy to fuel the fire
11:08   M.   So, the intermediate questions are "Why do i want to do/be that?" and the final question is "What do I really want to do/be?" Or how would _you_ express the question of the True will?
11:09   A.   "Who am I and why"
11:10   M.   Thanks :)
11:11   A.   No worries dude. I want EVERYONE to live their best, and understand themselves so they know what that is

The Assault on Reality / Ultimate Tagline Collection
« on: November 22, 2017, 08:50:23 am »
Hi everyone  :)

Here's a start of something I've been wanting to do for a while. A central place for all the catchphrases, expressions and whatever else that can be used with tagging. The point of the exercise is simple -- whenever one does a tag and has no idea, this will be a place to look  8)

I'll try to find and include everything that is visible anywhere or that could be used in that context. Obviously, I'm very much looking for what you want to add  :) . I'll try to give credit for each line.

The Start is done  ;D I think I'll start sorting by source, maybe we find a way to sort by better categories later. Naturally, this is a Work in Progress and always will be, but I do hope to have all the obvious available sources put into here soon :D [Edit: I think I went through most of the material and copied most of it out. Not everything though -- there should always be something to explore ;) Now it's on us to come up with more.]

The Official Motto of this list is Geri: "Put in the work! :)"

General Occultism / If I were to introduce someone into the Occult...
« on: October 27, 2017, 04:04:36 am »
Hi everyone :)

Recently I read this thread on RuneSoup https://runesoup.com/2010/06/the-book-game-its-benefits/
It's about making a list of books that you would give to someone as introduction to some specific type of magick. I immediately though, "But wait, I want to include Websites and such!" So I decided to go ahead and create my own list (with Blackjack and... Blogposts!  ;) ).

I'd love to hear what ressources you have given or would give to someone who is curious and wants to learn.

Here's my list. I'll try to keep the amount of text to read to a minimum.

1. As an introduction, I'd shamelesly recommend this post by myself
http://occultcorpus.com/forums/index.php?/topic/27438-chaos-magick-exercise/page__view__findpost__p__164183

2. Next, these two post by some very unusual Satanists -- These explain the Energy-approach to Magick quite well
http://www.angelfire.com/empire/serpentis666/ThreeSteps.html
http://www.angelfire.com/empire/serpentis666/Energy_Meditation.html

3. Then, we need some meditation. The very short chapters on "Exclusive Concentration " and "Inclusive Awareness" in Alan Chapman's "The Camel Rides Again" provide the best information on meditation that I know. The book can be found for free on the Internet Archive:
https://archive.org/details/the_camel_rides_again__a_primer_in_magick
 I'd also recomment it in general.

4. And lastly, I'd just add more details on actual Magick with the classical Arjil-Texts:
https://storytellerway.com/2013/02/06/just-effing-magick/
http://occultcorpus.com/forums/index.php?/topic/27491-direct-manipulation-class/

I think, with this one can start actually doing the Thing and getting experience and practice. In my "Magick is more like weightlifting than like rocket engineering"-view, practice is actually more important. The theory is just there to get on on the path -- or rather to tell one, that there is an actual path which can be taken.

Edit: Next I'd probably introduce them to the DKMU and Ellis, so they can receive help from the LS-network in their magick and also help the network grow :) I think this post from DBL https://www.dkmu.org/forum/index.php?topic=239.0 , Kiki's awesome Oistar guide and a thread about the LS https://www.dkmu.org/forum/index.php?topic=7.0 would do that well.

The DKMU Vault / An Oistar's Primer -- Poem by PsyVirion
« on: October 25, 2017, 07:11:05 am »
Doktor Hellfire recently posted these verses and illustration in the Group. I'm just saving it to here, with permission.

An Oistar's Primer

 "D" is for Domus, home for our heart.
 "K" is for Kaotica,  the place where we start.
 "M" is for Marauder, so proud and so fierce.
 "U" is for Underground, where the Veils we do pierce.




If that isn't awesome, I don't know what is! Thanks a lot  :)

Chaos Magic & Beyond / The Second Spirit -- Enhancing Willpower
« on: October 10, 2017, 05:49:41 am »
Hi everyone  :)

Somehow I feel that it is time to share another of my Servitors with you.

He is the Second Spirit. His intent is roughly "To ensure that I have Great Willpower and Self-Discipline". Here is his sigil -- this interpretation was created by Kindra Tia Haugen https://kindrahaugen.wixsite.com/kindra-tia-art -- thanks again :)



I think Willpower is, just like Cheerfulness, a topic common enough that folks might benefit from this. And I also think that the effectiveness of such Magick will increase, if more people use it. So there :)

The Spirit looks to me somwhat like an Ancestor Ghost from TESIII Morrowind http://en.uesp.net/wiki/Morrowind:Undead#Ancestor_Ghost but in faded Gold, not grey, with gusts of golden light around him. He also wears his Sigil as a mask on his face, but since it's all transparent, the skull is still visible.

The first part of the idea is that that this will boost one's general willpower. Just the ability to pull though on one's plans, get up and do stuff etc. That is a kind of background-effect. And the second part is, when I actually have a hard time to get myself to do something just now, visualising that sigil as a mask over my face and the Spirit telling me, in a deep voice, to get on with it, helps quite a bit ;)  The point is that he wants you to get ahead with what you really want -- to push you to become the version of yourself, that you really want to be.

That should be enough to get started working with him, in whichever way you do it. I'll add a short part from my Reflections-tread:
"> Doing Magick with that focus. "intentionally infusing ones Will with magick" -- "Summon the vision, and more importantly, summon the Feeling, and Pretend like a kid that you’re casting your spell, and like a kid, Believe it.".
a.) Influence your life directly. In short, gather Energy, then "program" it with your intent (as an affirmation in the present tense), then activate it. (on programming: "the more realistic your visualizations are and the more astral senses you use, the more effective the working will be, and infuse it with as much energy as you can, the more brilliant, the better, using your visualization. Feel happy emotions."*)
b.) Power your servitors with it ("Throughout the centuries, witches kept servitors, some of these relationships have even spanned lifetimes. This is achieved by calling the servitor by the name given to it, and breathing more light energy into it, reaffirming its mission")"  ( https://www.dkmu.org/forum/index.php?topic=380.msg1778#msg1778 )

A bit of history, for those who care. I don't remember a lot, unfortunately. Somewhen a few years ago, maybe only 2 or 3, I decided that I need a sigil for willpower and came up with the above, just rotated slighty. I saw it as the Sun beaming down sunrays. Then a few months later, I had an uncalled visualisation of a kind of ghost next to my bed. Not a strong hallucination or so, just like I would visualise with open eyes an apple on a table that isn't actually there. But in this case, I didn't try to visualise a ghost (though I do think that I saw a cool ghost-picture some time before that.).. But it was kind of non-threatening.  So I tried to ask it what it is, and tried to think what could be going on, and then, I don't remember how, it ended up taking that sigil as a mask and kind of becoming a Servitor for that Sigil. Don't know what you make of this -- maybe some kind of unconscious evocation while sleeping that caused this to happen :) Either way that has been a while ago and it is now an established part of my life. I'm regularly powering it up in roughly the way mentioned above. And my willpower is improving too :)

Later, I charged it with this little ritual:



Hopefully, this will be useful to someone :)
Sidenote: Though there is no LS included, he considers himself part of the LS-Network :)

Edit: I forgot to mention, he is not Second because of any chronological order, but because he is somewhat concerned with Second Order Desires, i.e. what you wish to wish . It's a concept i I learned in Philosophy, see here for a short explanation https://www.uark.edu/campus-resources/rlee/hintsp12/oh/frank-2order.html

Edit 2: I never felt the urge to share this one before... and don't have an urge to share the others. But he today somewhat demanded to become public. That's quite interesting in itself... Maybe someone needs something like that just now and that thought propagates through the LS-network? In any case I'm kind of nervous about it, as if it was a performance on stage :D but feel that this should help :)

The DKMU Vault / Diovivente's Good-bye post
« on: June 21, 2017, 01:39:26 am »
Hi folks. Frater Diovivente says goodbye to Facebook and posted an interesting analsysis about the state of the DKMU. Since folks asked him to save the post, I'll save it for him. If he's not okay with that, he can tell me here or in IRC and I'll delete it. He has said that he's active on the forum. [Edit: He's okay with me posting it here  :) ]

"[Someone] here, Gonna talk about a few things before I leave facebook for good this time. used to be that new members got flamed as a rite of passage in dkmu, "We take our work seriously but not ourselves"- [Sheosyrath]  People would get flamed in the irc to see if they would stick around. "Shucking Oistars to find some pearls"- [Chovexano] But at some point either we let in too many people, or too many members became jaded with a really effective process to find people who really wanted to be in the current. And slowly after a while shit got nastier. So many people talk about it in PM and IRC. "God why are all these kids into Ellis worship, what the hell are they doing with the Godforms." And while we can never really judge people by appearance its clear that a lot of people are image based magicians. That what they perpetuate is just as if not more important to their actual work.   
      Death to the Image hail the new flesh was a fucking war cry, for me it became a rite of shamanic birth and death. But somewhere along the lines, enough people declared the current dead and became jaded enough to let insubstantia into the group. Now we have oistars trying to label and define the current, using it as an image itself. People who only topically mimic other godforms experiences instead of really taking a look into it. And don't tell me I am wrong and play devil's advocate a shit ton of you feel the same way and have even confided it in me through private message.
       Last time diovivente was a thing people got into it, it was exciting and annoying but mostly obvious fun. The fact that people now are having a hard time seeing the parody is really sad. This account is being ran exactly the same way it was last time because I ran it. We got too many people invading occult spaces, infecting it with their jaded outlooks, their need to be self important. their reliance on self image. Facebook is a blue dopamine pushing petri dish for memetic parasites. IMAGE WORSHIP AT ITS HIGHEST.
 So while you guys are sitting there thinking of arguments to tear down what I am saying just save it. I've said it time and time again over the past several years, The Current Never Dies as long as it lives in the mind of one. But at what point did we allow such large amounts of toxicity in ourselves and around us? If any of these statements don't apply to you then try to avoid the knee jerk response and really think about what I am saying. Everything has gone up and down but mostly down since Occupy. Why are we so politically obsessed now, why are so many marauders image based who weren't before, why is there literally a theme with allowing oistars, in the sense of not challenging them with flame and reason, to become cult like and image based? Where are the flames that  used to mark who would stay and who would go? Why aren't there as many of us as there used to be using the world as our playground?
 It could be a number of things, but the fact of the matter is things will be as they are and will only get worse until something changes in each of us that are feeling the weight of that nastiness in the world. MAGICK IS REAL. YOU ARE A MAGICIAN. DEATH TO THE IMAGE HAIL THE NEW FLESH.
 I'm leaving facebook for good. Since I started on this white light kick several parasitic personality types have tried to invade my personal life, because I take hiatus so often I get to see the memetic parasite at work in facebook image worship more than most of my comrades because I have fresh eyes. I'm no better than anyone in here, I've been through the ringer and back in my pursuit of really real magick and those that know me on a deep level know this as fact. I encourage anyone who feels dissatisfied with themselves or the group to initiate an internal change, to make magick real again. To cast off the reliance on what people perceive you as and liberate yourselves in the highest sense. I'll still be writing more crowley than crowley. I'll still be doing my crazy shake the stick at the sky against monsters ritual on chelsea. But I am done with this toxic, invasive, memetic parasitic commercial machine, this blue dopmamine pumping demon. If anyone gives a shit I'll be in the forums and IRC, you know that place we all used to call home. This post and this account along with my main will be terminated after 24 hours.

My personal highlights:
> "The Current Never Dies as long as it lives in the mind of one." -- I try not to worry about "The DKMU" as some external, and instead to think about how I can contribute, how I can make something good.
> "Why are we so politically obsessed now, why are so many marauders image based who weren't before" -- we get distracted by the thetre of politics, which have much less actual influence over our lives than we attribute to it. What is more significant for you personally, for your well-being: the difference between Trump or Clinton -- or the difference between eating well and sleeping enough or not? Let alone your personal magic... 

Khaos provides (if we're focussed  8) )!

Edit: In case the comment thread gets deleted, I'll create a backup of my response, because I think these thoughts will remain relevant to me for a while:
"In the game of Go, I try to learn a simple technique: Before every move, ask yourself "Is this a mistake? How many points does it earn?" -- because one is inclined to play moves that "make sense" locally, that feel good, but are actually inconsequential to winning the game and that give the initiative away.

I'll try to also apply this to the rest of my life -- Before each train of thoughts, before each argument, before each post -- does this help fulfiling my actual long-term desires? Or is it just distraction? On the DKMU, I'll try ask myself if what I post really brings forward the AoR or magic in general, or if it is just distraction, virtue-signalling ("I hate Trump too"-signalling ) etc.

This essay might be relevant: http://lesswrong.com/lw/b4f/sotw_check_consequentialism/

"What positive future events does this action cause?" -- if inconsequential, like another post about politics, don't do it :) "

Hi folks :)

[Edit: This has become very long. Scroll to the red block a few posts below for a my condensed view :D ]

This is basically a mind-and-text-dump  ;) I recently read a few short texts which expressed quite clearly some of the ideas that were floating around in my mind, or added new ideas. I feel like that these paragraphs really helped me to take some ideas into daily practice. So, this will be long texts. If one doesn't seem interesting, maybe read the others :) Hopefully it helps someone -- enjoy ^_^

1. The first thing is by some Tony Robbins, who is no occultist at all, as it seems.

[Edit: If that looks to long, RuneSoup has a blog entry https://runesoup.com/2011/10/superheroism-begins-in-the-home/ where the part about "Microsuperheroism" -- in my view -- brings the same point across, with less details but much shorter. It's also a good post in it's own right.]

"The human brain isn’t designed to make us happy and fulfilled. It’s designed to make us survive.

This two-million-year-old organ is always looking for what’s wrong, for whatever can hurt us, so that we can either fight it or take flight from it. If you and I leave this ancient survival software to run the show, what chance do we have of enjoying life? An undirected mind operates naturally in survival mode, constantly identifying and magnifying these potential threats to our well-being. The result: a life filled with stress and anxiety.

Most people live this way since it’s the path of least resistance. They make unconscious decisions, based on habit and conditioning, and are at the mercy of their own minds. They assume that it’s just an inevitable part of life to get frustrated, stressed, sad, and angry—in other words, to live in a suffering state. But I’m happy to tell you there’s another path: one that involves directing your thoughts so that your mind does your bidding, not the other way around.[...]

Now, before we go any further, let’s just clarify the difference between these two emotional and mental states:

A Beautiful State
When you feel love, joy, gratitude, awe, playfulness, ease, creativity, drive, caring, growth, curiosity, or appreciation, you’re in a beautiful state. In this state, you know exactly what to do, and you do the right thing. In this state, your spirit and your heart are alive, and the best of you comes out. Nothing feels like a problem, and everything flows. You feel no fear or frustration. You’re in harmony with your true essence.

A Suffering State
When you’re feeling stressed out, worried, frustrated, angry, depressed, irritable, overwhelmed, resentful, or fearful, you’re in a suffering state. We’ve all experienced these and countless other “negative” emotions, even if we’re not always keen to admit it! Most achievers much prefer to think they’re stressed than fearful. But “stress” is just the achiever word for fear. If I follow the trail of your stress, it’ll take me to your deepest fear.

[... Skipping a large part where he gives a typology of suffering, which I feel doesn't add a lot. If you want it, write it and I'll add it]

But here’s the good news: once you’re aware of these patterns of focus, you can systematically change them, thereby freeing yourself from these habits of suffering. It all starts with the realization that this involves a conscious choice. Either you master your mind or it masters you. The secret of living an extraordinary life is to take control of the mind since this alone will determine whether you live in a suffering state or a beautiful state.

Our lives are shaped not by our conditions, but by our decisions. If you look back on the last 5 or 10 years I’d be willing to bet that you can recall a decision or two that has truly changed your life. Maybe it was a decision about where to go to school, what profession to pursue, or who you chose to love or marry. Looking back on it now, can you see how radically different your life would be today if you had made a different decision? These and so many other decisions determine the direction of your life and can change your destiny.

So what’s the biggest decision you can make in your life right now? In the past, I would have told you that what matters most is who you decide to spend your time with, who you decide to love. After all, the company you keep will powerfully shape who you become.

But over the last two years, my thinking has evolved. What I’ve come to realize is that the single most important decision in life is this: Are you committed to being happy, no matter what happens to you?

To put this another way, will you commit to enjoying life not only when everything goes your way but also when everything goes against you, when injustice happens, when someone screws you over, when you lose something or someone you love, or when nobody seems to understand or appreciate you? Unless we make this definitive decision to stop suffering and live in a beautiful state, our survival minds will create suffering whenever our desires, expectations, or preferences are not met. What a waste of so much of our lives!

This is a decision that can change everything in your life, starting today. But it’s not enough just to say that you’d like to make this change or that your preference is to be happy no matter what. You have to own this decision, do whatever it takes to make it happen, and cut off any possibility of turning back. If you want to take the island, you have to burn the boats. You have to decide that you’re 100% responsible for your state of mind and for your experience of this life.

What it really comes down to is drawing a line in the sand today and declaring, “I’m done with suffering. I’m going to live every day to the fullest and find juice in every moment, including the ones I don’t like, BECAUSE LIFE IS JUST TOO SHORT TO SUFFER.” "

That was number 1. Usually I hear that one has to interpret negative emotions and learn from them. And I agree, but often worries do just seem illusionary, but still appear. That's why I think that a conscious focus on what is well ("I'm grateful for ...") is also important. And -- from this text -- the "simple" commitment to be happy no matter what :)

Number 2 are two excertps from Alan Chapman's "The Camel Rides Again"

2.1 Is about active magic

"The fact is, magick is so simple it makes it hard to describe.

To make it clearer, I’ve devised a clear outline of the magical act, which can be applied to any magical technique. We’ll examine it in more detail in a moment, but for now it goes like this:

1. Decide what you want to occur.
2. Ensure that what you want to occur has a means of manifestation.
3. Choose an experience.
4. Decide that the chosen experience means the same thing as what you want to occur.
5. Perform the act or undergo the experience.
6. Obtain the result.

Let’s suppose you want a pay-rise at work. If you performed some magick for this, you might do the following:

1. Decide what you want to occur. --- That’s easy: ‘I will get a pay-rise at work.’
2. Ensure that what you want to occur has a means of manifestation.  ---Well, I do have a job and money does exist, so no problem there.
3. Choose an experience. --- This could be any ritual where I imitated the outcome; a completely nonsensical action, or the visualisation of an arbitrary sigil I’d made — whatever takes my fancy.
4. Decide that the chosen experience means the same thing as what you want to occur.  --- I decide to do the ritual that imitates the desired outcome, and so I simply decide that’s what the ritual means.
5. Perform the act or undergo the experience. --- I actually get out of my chair and do the ritual.
6. Obtain the result. --- This will manifest as a synchronicity — usually no sooner than the next day — although this may vary according to the desired outcome.
_____
This is the shortest concrete formula I know and therefore quite interesting.

2.2 Is kind of about the Law of Attraction, or some similar mechanism, from the same book.

"So, if all you need to do is act on a belief to make it true, then — if you want to live in a happy, wonderful world — all you need to do is act like you live in a happy, wonderful world. When I say ‘act’, this can be anything from a full-blown ritual act to something as simple as telling yourself the world is a fun, good place to be.

Of course, just saying it once won’t change much. Try it, and see how fast you revert back to thinking and acting as if the world isn’t so great. In order to work magick on the self effectively you must replace the habitual magick you do every day for undesirable ends, with new habitual magick. This means repetition.

Although I’ve argued that all you need to do in order to make a belief true is to act on it, please don’t think that if you believe you can fly then jumping off a tall building will make it so. Remember the second step of the ritual outline: ensure there is a means of manifestation for the belief. For a belief to
manifest in the material world, it must be within the game-rules of the material world. Humans do not fly. Humans cannot walk through walls, or pass through speeding cars, no matter how
hard they believe it. Thinking real hard is not belief shifting, nor is it magick.

The good news about magick and belief shifting is that you can re -make yourself however you see fit. You can ditch a crappy world-view for a good one; swap depression for joy; pessimism for optimism; or anxiety for peace. Of course, if you want to be depressed, scared and pessimistic, all you need to do is act in that way."
_____________________

And another thing that I want to add is 3. Arjil on Magick in a world with actually many people :)
"The whole problem with a worldview like "The Secret" is, though we can have an INFLUENCE over our reality and the currents in it, so can everybody Else. We do not exist in a vacuum, there's a whole entire universe that's going on that has nothing to do with Us, and is about it's own business. Shit happens, because shit is happening whether we knew about it, or not. The world is in constant motion and struggle, and it does not turn on a single person's whim.
Take for instance, as a crude and simple example, if you and I were both wanting the last cookie and attempting to manifest that result- Only one of us is going to get it. The one who's Will was stronger, who was better at employing it, and perhaps who got lucky."

That's it -- an unsorted collection of texts that have helped me :) Your views and reading recommendations are of course very welcome :)

Chaos Magic & Beyond / A Disbelieve based Paradigm
« on: May 24, 2017, 10:29:52 am »
Recently, someone asked about what to do when one has troubles believing in magic. Wesley Asuwish (I asked if he is okay with putting his name online ;) ) gave the answer to "Adopt a disbelief based paradigm". I asked to elaborate and he gave some interesting advice, which I didn't want to get lost in FB, so here comes:


"Okay, belief in magic isn't required to have intent, obviously. Most people don't believe in magick, and have plenty of intentions. So that part's not a problem.
Belief isn't required to do magick. People do shit they don't believe in all the time. We avoid stepping on cracks in the sidewalk, even though we know it's not going to cause our mothers to fracture their spines. We knock on wood when we say something uncertain. One of the largest cultural practices in America is about gaslighting small children into believing that a fat man in a red suit is going to hop on a sled pulled by flying reindeer and deliver them gifts while they're asleep. Almost no adults believe in Santa Claus, but that doesn't keep them from putting on silly hats and singing carols and getting trashed at company Christmas parties.

All my personal experiments have shown that, contrary to popular belief, magic doesn't give a shit what you believe. Sigils work if you follow the process - Intention, Obfuscation, Gnosis, Forget. It doesn't matter if you expect it to actually work or not.

Some of my most shockingly effective spells were done because I was bored, and cast something that I knew had no chance in hell of actually working just for shits and giggles. Then it worked. Plenty of spells that I was SURE would work failed miserably - in fact, oftentimes they failed more often, since I'd get overfocused and obsessed and fail over lust for results.

Who cares if magic is real? It's FUN. You can draw some squiggles on a sidewalk and scare the Christians. You can invoke Dionysus and pretend your drunken revelry is way more sophisticated than it probably is. You can make cool art and share it with people. You can make friends and do weird shit in graveyards at midnight. You can paint your girlfriend with cool designs and have kinky sex while pretending to be gods. You can wear cool robes or a leather jacket covered in sigils and act all mysterious and convince people you have psychic powers by making some bullshit interpretation of a bunch of cards you arbitrarily drew from a tarot deck.

You don't have to believe for any of this shit to work. Bullshit magick is just as effective as any other kind of magick.

This is a really effective paradigm. Encourages skepticism and critical thinking, encourages experimentation (cause, like, why not try doing a group ritual to give the president genital warts?) works great for defense (most attach techniques rely heavily on the power of suggestion), protects you against the effects of mageitis (harder to get full of yourself when you know you don't ACTUALLY have magic powers), and naturally contributes to the sigil process (Intention, Obfuscation, Gnosis, Forget - Why not, Who knows, Let's have some fun, and Who cares).

The only downside is that you will be a walking paradox. Which is kind of fun. Doing magic that you know works great because you know it isn't gonna work because you want to do it anyway. Naturally aligned with Discordian paradigms, since it's all chaos that's open to arbitrary interpretation and you're prohibited from believing anything you read anyway.

Oh, another big plus - rejecting any possibility of magical effects by default isn't just a useful banishment, it also greatly helps to improve your ability to analyze your effectiveness. Lots of people that believe end up convincing themselves that their magick is TOTALLY WORKING, but it just didn't work this time because there was some psychic interference in the area, or the planets were misaligned, or it's not the will of the gods or something. In a disbelief paradigm, you don't believe anything works unless you're presented with very obvious, overwhelming, undeniable objective evidence. As such, you're less likely to spend time fucking around with ineffective or unreliable techniques that you determine to just be placebo effect or whatever, and the few techniques that you DO actually sorta believe in, maybe, are the ones that you tend to gravitate to.

A lot of people are really held back in their magick because they're unable to accept the fact that the magick they're using isn't working for shit. Instead of saying "Meh, whatever, I figured that wouldn't work anyway" they end up making a bunch of excuses as to why it didn't work THIS time, and then keep doing it without taking any steps to change or improve their techniques."

That's it :) This might help someone. Thanks a lot to Wesley  8)

Chaos Magic & Beyond / The Cheshire Cat Spirit -- Online Revival
« on: April 27, 2017, 06:33:31 am »
Hi folks! I want to put an old friend back online. It's a servitor, the Cheshire Cat spirit. Here's his sigil:



A while ago it resurfaced on the FB-group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DomusKaoticaMarauderUnderground/permalink/1305862082776891/?match=Y2hlc2hpcmUgY2F0

It was one of my first magical works -- a grinning cat of smoke and moonlight, with the intent to bring cheerfulness to those around him. Turn the energy that goes into bad mood to some good cheerful use. I'll copy some of the FB-material to here:

"It's originally a pencil and red crayon drawing, which I then scanned and made into black/white/red with Gimp :D I then evoked it on a field by the light of a self-made oil-lamp is I remember correctly. It has been with me ever since. When my mood gets sad, I focus on the sigil and on the ghostly cat walking around me and play with it. I become cheerful again very quickly. Mood is so internal that it is an easy target for magic, but it's still very useful and pleasant. You're all welcome to play with it too :) Also think about it when you're in a good mood, it likes that"

In the thread, you can find other people's opinions, which I don't want to copy out of a closed group, so look there if you want :)

[Edit: The list is in the next post]

Hi folks  :)

I asked a question on FB and also want to ask it here:

Recently I've read an old Arjil-Post where he says that with his own system, he casts 20 spells each day. I think the text is really worth reading: https://storytellerway.com/2013/02/06/just-effing-magick/

I want to try something similar. Now the question: What are some "targets" or intents that one can use to do many spells? I could think of "I meet a woman with blue hair today" and such ideas (carrying a red bag and a tiny dog etc.). But surely there must be other things.

So, please share your ideas for intents  for magickal target practice. Of course, I'd also love to hear which methods you use to turn intents into spells and thus into reality.

If you want, you can also answer at FB: https://www.facebook.com/groups/DomusKaoticaMarauderUnderground/permalink/1359350154094750/

I'll put all answers from there in this thread, so that they don't get lost. I really am interested in the question of how to get more practice with practical magick ;)

On a recent walk through the forest, I saw this skull and had to leave a message.

The Assault on Reality / Glamourbomb Stickers for you!
« on: June 29, 2016, 06:23:45 am »
Hi folks!

The creative urge hit me today (after reading about Versling's experiences here https://www.dkmu.org/forum/index.php?topic=301.0 ), so I decided to finish my DKMU-Stickers. Take a Look  8)



You can download this picture and print it on A4 Adress labels -- 8 per sheet, appropriately. Specifically I use these: https://www.amazon.de/gp/product/B000M22HRK/  Maybe you can find them on Amazon.com as well. (I tried but coudn't... ) If you don't use A4, you can of course simply scale them. You can also change them to your hearts content :)

Credit belongs to the entire DKMU for inspiration. Especially to Kiki and her Glamourbombing manual and to Ringtail for the "RIP The Known" idea. And of course to Lewis Carrol  ;D

It's far from artistic perfection of course, but I'm very pleased with it  :D Hope, Ellis will be too.

Explanations:

The symbols in the lower left are.... you find out ;) It's on the forum somewhere :)
The German one is explained in the Glitterbombing-thread.

The Assault on Reality / Make the Sceptics Convince Themselves -- Project
« on: February 27, 2016, 02:29:30 pm »
Hi everyone,

we probably all agree that it would be good if more people used Magick. However, we are probably also rather tired of trying to convince those sceptics. This project is not about that. Rather, let's make them convince themselves (if this text seems to long to read, jump down to Tl;Dr  ;)  )

My idea is simple -- I want to create a free and public guide which gives a few (2-3) methods to try out. These should be simple and accessible, obviously. They do not have to cause massive effects -- their only purpose it to ensure that an open-minded person who honestly tries them will realise that magic is in fact real, that there is something here worth trying.

I already have a lot of this thought out and would do it on my own (as good as I can), if I need to. However, I really want to ask for your input (obviously I will give credit if you wish). As for distribution, I think I will create a few printed versions and put them in some interesting places. But mainly I will create a public document e.g. in Scribd and spread the link to that. I'll print stickers and cards with it combined with  interesting phrases etc. -- all the usual glitterbombing methods (I'll also obviously include the LS in there somewhere  8)  ) .

I want to make this as short as possible, since people are averse to long texts. I'd just write a short opening paragraph (see next post for an idea) and then directly give the methods. After each I would include links to further reading, to free books and essays mainly (I think it might be best to avoid all metaphysics -- no mention of khaos, of quantum mechanics, of psychology. I really want to make it short and purely practical. If they have success with that, they will get into the theory themselves, I would include a few links of that nature).

Of course I have some ideas for this already, which I will outline in the next post to  make it less wall-of-text-y  :D

So, which methods you would suggest.to include in this? See the Tl;Dr for my questions to you :) See the next post for my very preliminary ideas.

Tl;Dr If you had an open-minded sceptic about magick, which methods would you suggest him to try? Which "instructions" would you give him, which texts would you send? What are the shortest paths to the conclusion that magick is real?
