I was going through some notes before and was reminded of this ex-Satanist who reveals things about Satanism, and how this belief system relates to Christianity which it rebels against. They are like two sides of a coin so to speak. I will get to what I mean about the 'magic of nature' after I summarize from my notes what this guy, Mark Passio has to say about these two worldview, Christianity and Satanism--which really share the same worldview:
Mark Passio says he was brought up as a Catholic, but was to come to realize his need for spirituality was abused by this fear-based and mind-controlling belief system. It is a systems which makes its believers be contained in a box, and all consciousness and perception especially as to what is happening outside that box is forbidden. So may who feel this abuse and confinement are therefore seduced by what is being claimed to be outside the religious box---the highly organized satanic network.
The Satanic philosophy claims that human nature is naturally "animalistic" and horrible, and has always been, and this means we should embrace our "true nature" and learn how to control others who deserve to be abused because they are weak, So look! BOTH organized religion and Satanism agree that human nature is naturally sinful, but whereas the former will claim we can change it through "God's Grace" if we obey their rules, the Satanists wallow in what they believe is their selfish behaviour and seek to use it to their advantage at the expense of others.
So this is the toxic 'game' agoing on isn't it?
So then what do I mean by the magic of nature? Well I disregard both THAT worldview shared by Christianity and their Shadow, Satanism, and rather see Nature, other species, our bodies, sexuality, as sacred. And that by looking into this---openly questioning reality without fear, or presumption about it-- we begin opening up to the magic of nature. NOT being caught in presumptions about nature and our natures like such myths as described, but an open-minded loving embrace of the Mystery we are living dying and regenerating in.
