2022.01.25 01:26 No-Reason7887 Ramblings on Satanism from a neo-Sabbataean Esoteric Jewish Perspective
It has been said that one cannot be a Jew and a Satanist. I am a Jew and a Satanist. Here’s how and why, and what I do.
So there’s me, from middle America, grew up reform-denomination jewish. Hebrew school, jewish holidays, barmitzvah, shul services on Saturday, all of that but way more hippie progressive than some of my cousins. I got into Satanism in junior high for shock value, and a desire to learn harmful spells against my enemies because I was a cringelord. Most modern iterations of Satanism relied on reactionary tenets to a religion I never belonged to, and anthropologically unsupported claims about human nature (and full of edgy, bourgeois posers in my local community) but it sure scared the goyim! I loved how it felt to be unafraid of their fake made-up boogeyman. Judaism (the type I grew up with) doesn’t have a heaven or hell. We don’t believe in original sin, or a manichean dualist cosmos, or a struggle of supreme good vs evil. Ethics in Judaism are towards making this world a better place, not a reward or punishment in the afterlife. There are a lot of dusty old rules though, and too much pacifism for my liking. The thing about modern middle-american Judaism that left me most unsatisfied was the absence of a notable warrior tradition.
Then I got into the weird side of Judaism, and yes, there is a weird side. I found out about Kabbalah. Then I found out about Lilith. Then I found out Ha’Satan. The original, first edition Satan. Then began my antinomian practice, which I came to instinctually but later discovered an antecedent for, in the ideas of Josef Frank and Shabbatai Zvi.
Without going too far into the foundational stories of what I’m doing, Satan is AccuseAvengePunisheDestroyer and psychopomp who works to enlighten all minds long after yhvh has given up in despair and madness. Satan resembles what yhvh used to be in the days of Abraham, and technically Ha’Satan is just another way to say Ha’Shem, seeing as Satan is an angel created to perform a task. Same entity, same overarching agenda. Very different methods.
I do meditative shell kabbalah. (Kelipot. It means shells.) Satan is an excellent tutelary figure in this. As the avatar of yhvh the Mad God of Consciousness who goes where none of the other avatars can, Satan is transcendent to all shells. To Satan, there is no shell, and the Kelipot cannot conceal the spark of imminence from him. No things are trifen to him, no substance or action forbidden. Satan (and Lilith the extinct hominid to whom Satan is consort,) is the keeper of the shells, which have a beneficial purpose in protecting the spark of potentiality from pollution and dissipation, like an orange peel protects an orange on a tree. The orange peel has value and potential of its own, separate from the fruit—zest in baking, liqueur, flavorings, potpourri, compost, drink garnish, to name a few. If one is attempting to contemplate the nature of the orange, the inquiry won’t go far without contemplating the peel. The peel can say much about the orange. Likewise with all Kelipot. Some denominations believe that the halakha, when followed rigorously, impart hidden wisdom and a mindset in which one can grasp miracle-working. I don’t doubt that. I act on the premise that mindful, deliberate transgression can achieve the same goal as pietism. In that, it looks (and is) much more like the Aghori of India than the buffoonery of the old Sabbataeans’ practices. Eating pork because it’s what’s for dinner, for example, is not shell contemplation. It has to be with the conscious awareness that something is supposed to be forbidden, but doing it anyway and meditating on the nature of its forbidden status. This is to cultivate mattespirit nondualism.
Obviously this is extremely unorthodox, and would probably have the more traditionalist denominations insisting I’m not jewish anymore. I disagree.
As for conduct: (sourcing liturgy and UPG) Satan expects complete sincerity and authenticity from thinking beings despite all adversity, and carries out the task of holding all accountable in word and deed. He punishes those who propagate anti-mind, anti-thought, anti-consciousness, anti-awareness modes of existence (such as chattel slavers, dictators and censors) and wants people to strive for independent moral-pragmatic decision-making, to discern or discover right action for themselves without divine intervention or consulting a rulebook. Praising Satan, to me, means emulating him and striving to exceed his basic expectations. No, I don’t think I’m God or Satan, but part of my consciousness participates in generating the personified thought-forms called “God” and “Satan.”
I count Lilith and Satan among the matriarchs and patriarchs too, because of my kintype, they are my forefather and foremother.
As much as I respect the original philosophies of the two major Sabbataean leaders, I see their movements as wasted potential.

I'll go first, following the tradition that made this show of adding sad songs that you'll never be able to listen to in the same way again; I'd go with "Take Me to Church" by Hozier. It fits with the aesthetic of the show.

Hey all - running a one-shot in a couple days. 13th Doctor (tweaking 10’s stats), Osgood, K9, and Bing Crosby at Expo 67 in Montreal. Any tips on structure? I’m worried about weighting my villains (the Nestene Consciousness and Autons) against the team. We all play DND together weekly, so I know the group. Just want to make sure I have some fun scenes in advance of meeting the Big Bad. All tips welcome!

2022.01.25 01:25 TheGalaxial Lovers of Kerala Unite!
This is a rant following a lot of recent posts asking about safe places to make out!
Ten years ago when I was that age, I used to tell my girlfriend, now wife -“ 10 years from now, they will be able to kiss on the streets”
But where are we? We have actually regressed! We can’t even hold hands in the street. Sadachaaram is everywhere. Effing uncles and aunties have no jobs but to peep under our sheets!
This has to stop. Indian culture celebrated love and sexuality so don’t give me that crap. We wrote the bloody kamasutra fffs!
Atleast by the time my children are old enough, I want a place where they can cuddle safely instead of taking stupid risks. I would happily let them use my house but they won’t will they?
I don’t want my son being beat up because he kissed a girl. I don’t want my daughter to be taken to some stupid (and dangerous) hideaway! I want them to be able to kiss in parks and roads!
I don’t want them to feel threatened by police - Both the Kerala and sadachaaram kind!

I know these are very different games, but we played chaosbane on very hard, and found that incredibly easy.
We just want the difficulty to be normal, not a pushover but not hair pulling. Should we play verminitide 2 on veteran?

2022.01.25 01:25 Conscious-Housing-45 Why is Dottys/Red Dragon so strict with the drinks?
Let me start this off by saying that on the off chance I actually go to one of them I spend at least $60-$70. And while doing so I tip $5 a round( IF they give a drink!), bigger if I win and cashout. So overall me and my gf spend a $100+ and at the least the gaming bartender is making $20+ for a tip off of us individually.
Most of the time they are hesitant to give more than one drink, especially if its a shot. Some of the bartenders ive experienced there are either alright or downright rude about making drinks. They say "you must be gambling 50 cents a hand and putting in $20", if you even slightly deviate from that '50 cent' rule for a minute and they see it theres no hope in getting a drink. Even if you just stuck $100 there within the past hour.
There are rules I get it, but those are for people playing the bare minimum trying to get free drinks. I don't do that and I tip every round, which is something none of their "high rollers" ever do, ive seen very few people tip well in there. How do they expect to make tips if they do the bare minimum for drinks? Anyone else deal with that when theyre there?
