There’s this horrible idea out there that desire is the root of all suffering, and to be enlightened is to give up all desire. Obviously I don’t believe that is really true. But still, it seems there is this conflict between desire and spiritual evolution. In fact, people who identify themselves as being on the… Read More »
When I was intensely studying black magick, one of the concepts I heard pretty regularly was that to be a God, we must go against the Universe. We must subdue it and break out of its control. And this made a certain amount of sense at the time. After all, all the world’s religions are… Read More »
