Society and The Ideal of the Empowered Self

The Empowered Self

Behind all human potential lies the concept of the Empowered Self. But what is the Empowered Self? What does it really mean to be empowered? It is not merely a reflection of one's abilities or achievements, but rather a profound understanding and acceptance of one's intrinsic worth. It's an inner flame, an undying spirit that refuses to be dimmed by external circumstances or social pressures. It is living in harmony with desire and willpower, that then will reflect on one's abilities and achievements. It is both seeing and fulfilling one's potential, while understanding that potential is unlimited.

The Empowered Self is characterized by a deep sense of self-awareness. It is an individual who has journeyed inward, confronted their fears, acknowledged their desires, and emerged with a clearer understanding of who they are, beyond any mere idea of the self. However, This self-awareness is not static; it's an ongoing process, constantly refined by experiences, introspection, and the challenges and triumphs of life.

The Empowered Self possesses an unwavering resilience and strength. Life's adversities are not seen as insurmountable obstacles but as opportunities for growth, learning, and further empowerment. This strength stems from a knowledge of one's own eternal nature, and the conviction that any perceived obstacles are actually hidden opportunities.

An essential attribute of the Empowered Self is the celebration of individuality. In a society that often demands conformity, the Empowered Self cherishes its uniqueness, unapologetically embracing its own authenticity; including any quirks, talents, passions, or dreams. It sees both positive and so-called negative attributes of the personality as real, and good. It understands that true fulfillment doesn't come from mimicking others, or from any superficial identity, but from forging one's path, guided by inner wisdom and intuition.

The Empowered Self is deeply connected to its own aspirations. It is not swayed by fleeting trends, by altruistic notions, or external pressures, but is guided by a clear vision of its own goals and the kind of life it wants to lead. This clarity provides direction, ensuring that every step taken is aligned with the broader journey of self-realization and empowerment.

In essence, the Empowered Self is the embodiment of authenticity, resilience, strength, pride, and purpose. It's not a single destination, or static state of being, but a continuous journey, one that demands courage, introspection, and an unwavering commitment to personal achievement. The Empowered Self is the individual who knows the Self, who has seen the infinite possibility within, and with the strength of will, determines one's own power.


At its core, society is a complex web of relationships and shared beliefs and values that bind individuals together into a cohesive unit. It represents a collective of individuals who, while possessing their unique aspirations and identities, come together based on genetic, geographical, cultural, or ideological commonalities. Society serves as both a mirror, reflecting the cumulative experiences, traditions, and histories of its members, and a framework, providing the structures and norms that guide daily interactions. Ideally, while it derives its body and strength from the collective whole, its true soul lies in the individual being of its members.

The cornerstone of any healthy society, one that thrives on the principles of liberty, individuality, and self-expression, is the concept of the Empowered Self. Throughout the course of human history, we can observe both societies which nurture this quintessential self (which we will call here "organic societies"), and those that are built instead on control and conformity (which we will call here "artificial" societies). We prefer the former, a society in which the individual can not only survive but thrive, radiating a vitality that comes from the individual's inner strength and unhindered growth.

When looking at and judging different human civilizations throughout history, the ideal of the Empowered Self, and the maintenance thereof, emerges as the foundational principle on which truly thriving societies are constructed. It is more than a philosophical abstraction; it is the living embodiment of freedom, individuality, and self-expression. It is also the natural state of being. History hitherto paints a vivid dichotomy: on one side, we find organic societies, exemplified by pre-Christian, pagan cultures, confident in their essence, who nurture and celebrate the Empowered Self. These cultures understand that the growth of the individual is a reflection of the health of the collective. Families and communities celebrate strength, pride, and heroes. They provide fertile grounds where the seeds of intrinsic empowerment are sown, cultivated, and allowed to flourish.

Conversely, there are artificial societies, constructed not on the bedrock of individual potential and organic community, but on institutional control. Such societies, often insecure in their foundations, find it necessary to impose a rigid framework of conformity. Here, the individual's potential is often suppressed to maintain the dominance of overarching institutions. The result is a landscape where the Empowered Self struggles to break free, often stifled by the very structures that claim to foster community themselves.

However, the Empowered Self is not merely a product of external forces, and therefore can exist in any environment, even an oppressive one. Strength is nurtured from within, shaped by introspection, resilience, and a deep understanding of one's true identity as a unique expression of an eternal universe. In societies that celebrate this notion, individuals thrive. They embrace challenges of life; drawing from an inexhaustible well of inner energy. While societies entrenched in control might appear to dim the potential of the individual, they too, paradoxically, can become crucibles for the true manifestation of the Empowered Self. In oppressive environments, where conformity is prized and even mandated, and where deviating from the norm can invite severe repercussions, the Empowered Self faces its most formidable challenges. Yet, it is precisely in these hostile landscapes that the resilient spirit of such individuals is tempered. Rather than succumbing, an individual may harness this adversity, transforming it into a catalyst for personal growth and strength.

Within each of us lies the intrinsic power of our own natural state of being. Many of us, however, have been trampled on our entire lives, by institutions and structures of control, designed to keep us from our real potential. If affected thusly by society, we can again be unburdened by expectations or artificial limitations. This is what it means to become empowered, to find again the natural self. This natural self is not meek or passive; it pulses with an unyielding drive, ambition, and a sense of purpose. Embodying the Empowered Self means embracing a freedom that is both profound and liberating – the freedom to chart one's own path, to passionately achieve goals, and to act upon desires without the shackles of fear or guilt.

The Primary Objective of Society

In a culture that is built on conformity, advocating for a society structured around the principle of the Empowered Self may seem like a radical departure from the established mainstream. Mainstream culture seeks to subvert the potential of individuals who are anchored in their authentic selves. Yet, when we reflect upon the essence of what it means to be truly alive: to act without fear, to chase ambitions without guilt, and to be the master of one's self, the ideal begins to seem vital. It's precisely this ideal of the Empowered Self, with its intrinsic power and unyielding drive, that should be the cornerstone of society. By centering on this principle, we envision a society not bound by stifling limitations but one that forms an organic network, where every individual has liberty and real community.

In modernity, artificial institutions converge to form a society which emerges as an overarching behemoth, demanding individuals to submit to its collective objectives, often at the cost of personal aspirations. This state, while firmly entrenched, is misaligned with the ideal of fostering human potential. Here we seek to posit a more enlightened view: society should be an organic being made up of empowered individuals, not an oppressive force seeking to crush and control them.

The primary objective of society should be celebrating individualism rather than curbing it. Instead of expecting individuals to perpetually sacrifice for the artificial collective, society should recognize that when individuals relentlessly pursue their own goals and dreams, the entire community reaps the benefits. Such pursuits drive innovation, creativity, and progress, and create a society based on strength and heroism.

In this deal society, organic communities exist, not out of enforced mandates, but from nature, with the ability to respect each individual's inherent liberty. The societal structures should not dictate or impose, but rather amplify and support, acting as a catalysts that unlocks the growth of each individual's potential.

In a society that honors the individual as its highest ideal, the purpose and function of its institutions and systems would undergo a transformative shift. These structures would not exist to suppress and regulate, but rather to uplift, support, inspire, and promote growth. For instance, the educational system in such a society would not operate as an assembly line, churning out uniformly thinking citizens to fit predetermined molds. Instead, education would be viewed as a journey towards self-discovery, designed to encourage each individual's unique interests, with the responsibility for education placed in the hand of the each individual themselves. Likewise, the role of legislation would pivot from being a mechanism to curb individual freedoms to one that actively expands and safeguards them.

In essence, the fostering of empowered individuals should be the primary objective in any healthy society.

Healthy Societies

While it's common to evaluate the success of a society based on metrics such as economic prosperity, technological progress, or military might, these indicators often overlook a crucial dimension: the psychological and emotional well-being of its members. A society centered on the principle of the empowered self offers a more holistic metric for societal health. Such a society is not just about productivity; it is a society of individuals, living in organic community, who are deeply fulfilled and content with their lives, no matter what they might be doing, because they are all doing what they want to be doing.

In this context, individuals bring far more than mere labor or intellectual capability to society. It is about more than what the individual can contribute to the greater whole. It is about the story of each individual, and the quilt of interconnection that is formed by the natural way these individuals are in relationship to each other. In an ideal society, there is more to than just material acquisition, although material goals may be exactly what particular individuals focus on and are able to accomplish. Ultimately, it is about living a fulfilled life, and individuals who do this infuse their communities with a purposeful energy, which in turn will contribute to the collective good. Empowered individuals contribute not just to the economy but to spiritual fabric of their communities, elevating shared values and communal bonds.

When individuals are given the freedom to reach their full potential, they will build a healthy society. The society that emanates from such empowered individuals, is not artificial and mechanistic, but grows naturally from the collective will of its people. In short, a healthy society is one that fosters organic community, which requires a certain state of being, which is enabled by empowered individuals.

The Nature of Organic Society

The term 'organic society' may conjure images of agrarian utopias or communes living off the grid. However, the essence of an organic society lies in the fundamental structure of its human relations. In an organic society, relationships are not dependent on membership in artificial institutions, but grow naturally through human relationships. Such a society understands that each individual is a seed of potential that, given the right conditions, such as freedom, respect, and opportunity, can grow into something extraordinary. It recognizes that the Empowered Self is not a static entity but an ever-evolving one, who reflects a similarly dynamic social structure. An organic society is not rigid but fluid, able to adapt to the changing needs and aspirations of its members, formed and shaped by the desires and aspirations of it's members.

Every individual, in their unique essence, contributes to the fabric of organic society. The spirit of each individual is found in the metaphysical being of the organic society. The individual is not lost the group, however. Rather, their autonomy is respected, and their potentials are nurtured. The family, which stands as the primary unit of organic society, should foster values of mutual respect, autonomy, and individuality. Ideally, the family is a nurturing ground where the seeds of empowerment are sown and cultivated. Every member should be treated with dignity and encouraged to embrace their unique potential.

The true nature of an organic society lies the recognition that naturally, the collective well-being is intrinsically linked to the well-being of its individual members. There is no dichotomy between individual aspirations and the collective good. In fact, in nature, the collective is an expression of the individual. Every empowered individual adds to the strength and vitality of the society, creating a relationship where both the individual and the society flourish. This is what has produced the great societies of the past. This is how society naturally grows, unless it is being steered by nefarious forces.

Naturally, societal structures, from educational systems to workplace environments, and even governments, evolve to nurture, protect and support rather than to control. For example, education in an organic society is not a "system" at all, but rather a continuation of the same process by which children learn to walk and to speak. This means learning is a life-long pursuit. The focus would not just be on rote memorization but on fostering critical thinking skills, learning personal responsibility, and pursuing individual interests. Success would not be measured through standardized tests but through the ability of real people to apply their knowledge and creativity toward their own goals.

Similarly, workplaces in an organic society would be noticeably different. In the vast arenas of modern trade and industry, there lies a curious paradox. Amidst the hum and whirl of machinery, or the click and clack of keyboards, the worker stands, feeling rather like a stranger in a foreign land, playing the part of an actor in a grand play neither wrote nor wished for. In an organic society, it's an entirely different stage. The workplace in is not the monotonous hum of uniformity, but the vibrant song of individuality and purpose. In an organic society, the worker is not a mere cog in a ceaseless machine, but a craftsman, an artist. The same is true of the empowered individual. In an organic society, one works not for the distant dream of another but for the tangible reality of one's own vision. And this, mind you, is not mere whimsical fancy. For when one works with one's own interests in mind, one does not merely increase in productivity; one becomes a fountain of creativity, loyalty, and innovation. Here lies the true essence of industry, not in the mere mechanics of trade, but in the soul of the tradesman. And it is this soul that, when recognized and nurtured, can elevate not just the individual but the entire edifice of enterprise.

Similarly, in a society woven from organic threads, governments remember their ancient duty: to oversee matters of national pertinence and not to entangle themselves in individual lives, families, and small communities. For when governance, with its vast and sweeping gaze, attempts to peer too closely, to micromanage the minutiae, it risks blurring the vision of the grand tapestry. The true calling of those who lead is not to constrict but to liberate, to ensure that every individual in this great organism we call society is allowed the very air to breathe, the space to grow, to be.

The Family

Within the ecosystem of society, the family serves as both the foundational unit and the first school of empowerment. The importance of the family in shaping the Empowered Self cannot be overstated. It is within the family that we first learn the values of love, trust, and mutual respect—values that deeply inform our capacity for self-empowerment. It is also where we first learn about our desires, ambitions, and will, as very small children, and the response of our family members to these natural drives will determine a lot about how we see ourselves as we grow. In an ideal scenario, the family acts not as a hierarchy but as a network of support, where each member has something valuable to contribute, and each member's needs and wants are respected. It is a space where children are encouraged to explore their interests freely, where parents provide not rigid rules but flexible guidelines, and where the ultimate goal is the holistic development of each individual. Thus, the family stands as a microcosm of the organic society, exemplifying its ideals on a smaller scale.

The family, in its essence, is the crucible wherein we are introduced to the core tenets of human interaction, and how to view the self. It is here that we first grasp the profound meanings of love, trust, compassion, and pride. These foundational experiences shape our worldview, molding our innate sense of self-worth and our ability to foster empowering relationships with others.

Children, in this nurturing atmosphere, aren't merely passive recipients of knowledge or values. They are active contributors, encouraged to voice their thoughts, pursue their curiosities, and develop their individual passions. Parents, in turn, don the roles of facilitators rather than dictators. They provide a framework of values and principles, but within this framework, they allow ample room for exploration, growth, and even error.

In this nurturing familial environment, the emphasis isn't on conforming to a predetermined mold, but on recognizing and celebrating the unique strengths, aspirations, and potentials of each member. Challenges are met with ambition, successes are celebrated, and failures become lessons in resilience.

As such, the family, again, emerges as a miniature representation of the organic society. It epitomizes the principles of strength, willing collaboration, and empowerment, demonstrating on an intimate scale the vast potentialities of a society that grows naturally on these ideals. The family should be the first bastion of empowerment, setting the stage for individuals to navigate the larger world with confidence, power, and a deep-seated sense of their intrinsic worth.

The Highest Ideal

In a society that champions the Empowered Self, such empowerment becomes more than just an individual goal; it becomes the collective aspiration. When the Empowered Self is held as the highest ideal, it sets a standard that encourages everyone to strive for their own version of excellence. The natural competition that arises in this situation helps ensure that all of society is striving upwards, as each individual gradually becomes stronger. The highest ideal, therefore, is not solitary but shared, inviting each individual to contribute to the totality of human potential.

In a society that ardently champions the Empowered Self, the ethos must be rooted in the belief that every individual possesses a unique spark, a distinct potential that awaits realization. In fact, each individual is a unique manifestation of the divine universe itself. Elevating the self to the pinnacle of societal ideals not only sets a lofty standard but also ignites a communal flame, inspiring every individual to reach for their own zenith of excellence and self-realization.

Competition is not always a zero-sum game. It's not only a race where one's gain is another's loss. Instead, it is a harmonious symphony of individual aspirations, where each person's quest for the actualization of one's desires complements and enriches the collective endeavor. Yes, some will lose, and some will win, but this allows for the pursuit of greatness. The spirit of competition is created by individual achievements, but that in turn creates a culture of collaboration and victory. Nature, in its wisdom, recognizes that true empowerment is not achieved in isolation but in concert with others, and competition is a vital part of that. Nature understands the intricate interplay of individual and collective well-being, realizing that one's own flourishing is deeply intertwined with the prosperity of the community, and vice-versa.

The Empowered Self, then, is not a lofty philosophical concept but a pragmatic and achievable ideal that has profound implications for the health and happiness of both the individual and society. By focusing on empowering the individual, we create a ripple effect that can bring about significant social change, transforming not just our own lives but the world at large. True empowerment is rooted in recognizing, nurturing, and harnessing one's innate potential. When individuals are given the space and freedom to explore their own strengths and passions, they not only thrive personally but also contribute meaningfully to the world.

Imagine a society where each individual operates from a place of self-interest, which contains self-awareness, self-assuredness, and self-efficacy. Such individuals would not be driven by anything but by an intrinsic motivation to realize their own fulfillment and growth. This drive towards self-realization is not "hidden under a bushel", so to speak; it radiates outward, influencing those around them. Like a stone cast into a pond, the ripples generated by one empowered individual can inspire and uplift many others, setting off a chain reaction of empowerment. Therefore, each of us should strive to grow our own ego.

In summary, the Highest Ideal is the profound recognition of the ego, not as a source of hubris or division, not as limited self-interest, but as the pinnacle of self-awareness and purpose. The ego, oft-maligned, is in truth the crucible of our uniqueness, the seat of our ambition, and the engine of our aspirations. It is the source of our energy and drive. When harnessed with intention and insight, the ego becomes a tool for achievement, pushing us to strive, to excel, and to carve our distinct mark upon the world. It is this spirited affirmation of the ego, as a force of good, that stands as the touchstone of an empowered society. Here, individuals rise, inspiring those alongside them, forging a world where each person’s brilliance shines as brightly as they are able, creating a dazzling, interconnected constellation.

Black Holes and The Sun

Celestial Bodies

The metaphor of celestial bodies provides a compelling framework for understanding the contrasting dynamics that can emerge within varying social structures, whether it's within the confines of a family, the broader community, or society at large. A black hole is an astronomical object that is so dense and so devoid of light that it consumes all forms of energy and matter that venture too close, giving nothing back. It is a vortex of insatiable absorption.

In stark contrast, the Sun operates on an entirely different principle. It stands as an astronomical body that continually radiates light and energy, sustaining life and promoting growth for all within its gravitational pull. The Sun's luminescence fosters life and its heat provides the essential conditions for growth and evolution.

While this metaphor might seem simplified, it captures the essence of two diametrically opposed environments: one that drains the life and potential from individuals and another that cultivates and nurtures it. The black hole environment sucks away enthusiasm, creativity, and individuality, leaving behind a void of unfulfilled potential. Conversely, a sun-like environment energizes, emboldens, and inspires, serving as a catalyst for individual growth. This cosmic analogy serves not just as a poetic device but as a poignant reminder of the type of social atmosphere we should strive to manifest.

A Negative Environment

A black hole environment systematically drains individuals of their essential vitality, creativity, and sense of self. Such environments materialize through oppressive, bureaucratic, authoritarian, and artificial systems. These systems operate on a foundational principle of control and domination, feeding off the life-force of individuals and communities, forcing individuals to suppress their unique identities, desires, and aspirations, in favor of the agenda of the artificial collective, the institution.

These oppressive environments, even small-scale manifestations, can escalate into various forms of abuse; including emotional, physical, spiritual, or psychological; leaving individuals not just feeling disempowered, but also emotionally or physically scarred. Such environments don't just rob people of their agency; they also erode their self-esteem, leaving them feeling helpless, isolated, and without recourse. This is done because people who feel weak are easier to control.

Perhaps the most tragic aspect of any negative environment is its self-perpetuating nature. Those who find themselves drained of their inner joy, their vitality and creativity, become incapable of being sources of light for others. The depletion of one individual can have a ripple effect, further intensifying a culture of weakness and hopelessness.

A Positive Environment

On the opposite end of the spectrum lies what can be termed a sun-like environment, a setting that actively nurtures and fosters individual growth. This kind of environment operates on the understanding that the well-being of the whole is inextricably linked to the well-being of each individual. Rather than seeking control or employing coercion as a means to maintain order, a sun-like environment uses inspiration, encouragement, and trust as its core guiding principles.

Within such a setting, individuals are provided with a fertile ground for self-discovery and personal growth. They are encouraged to explore their potential fully, to take risks, to make mistakes, and to learn from them. This fosters a culture of continuous learning, where setbacks are viewed not as failures, but as invaluable lessons on the path to self empowerment.

In a sun-like environment, when one individual rises, the entire whole is uplifted. This synergistic effect amplifies the potential of the group, creating a culture of strength. Unlike a black hole environment, a sun-like environment creates a positive feedback loop. Empowered individuals become the source of inspiration and strength for others, encouraging a cycle of power that benefits not just the individual, but the community and, by extension, society as a whole.

Emotional Black Holes

It is essential to recognize the subtle ways in which a black hole environment can erode individual strength. This is not always overt; it can manifest in small ways, in dark sarcasm, in critical comments, in the casual dismissal of one's ideas or feelings, or in the constant undermining of one's self-esteem. Over time, these seemingly insignificant acts accumulate, leading to an emotional black hole within. The individual begins to internalize this lack of agency, often mistaking it for an inherent flaw rather than a consequence of their environment.

Recognizing the insidious ways in which an emotional or spiritual black hole environment can sap individual resilience and vitality is crucial. The erosion of one's inner strength is not always overt or easily detectable, but one must strive to discover the sources that are draining, in order to remove oneself from them, and begin to heal.

Detaching from such negative environments is not merely an act of self-preservation but a profound declaration of self-worth. It signifies a refusal to let external circumstances dictate one's inner strength and trust in one's own worth. Just as a plant thrives when removed from the shade and placed in sunlight, so does the human spirit when nurtured in affirmation of the ego. For genuine healing to occur, one must be create an environment, internally and externally as much as possible, that recognizes, respects, and reveres one's intrinsic value. This will allow the individual to emerge stronger, more resilient, and ready to embrace the fullness of their potential.

Spiritual Suns

In stark contrast, a sun-like environment contributes to the individual’s sense of self-worth by validating their experiences, ideas, and emotions. It encourages open dialogue, respects differing viewpoints, and fosters a culture of mutual learning. In a sun-like environment, empowerment is not a zero-sum game but a synergistic process where each individual's growth contributes to the collective growth.

In these nurturing settings, individuals are endowed with the courage and confidence to take calculated risks, to venture beyond their comfort zones, without fear of retribution from failure. This doesn't merely enhance personal growth; it enriches the community as a whole, creating a positive environment. This kind of experience is most empowering when it exists in the most intimate of social environments, the family.

The family should be a sun-like environment, that serves as a crucible for both individual and collective empowerment, nurturing each member to fully realize their potential, which in turn elevates the entire community and all of society.

The dichotomy between black holes and suns serves as a critical lens through which we can evaluate the social environments that we find ourselves in. Identifying whether our environment functions as a black hole or a sun allows us to make informed choices about our participation in such settings. More importantly, it provides us with the motivation needed to transform black hole environments into sun-like ones, thereby contributing to the cultivation of Empowered Selves and, consequently, a more empowered society.

The Power of Rebellion

The Dire Need to Rebel

The impulse towards rebellion should not be dismissed as a mere whimsical act of contrariness or an adolescent urge to dissent for its own sake. It is more than just being a "rebel without a cause". In the context of oppressive, black-hole environments that constrain personal freedoms, the call to rebellion transforms into an existential imperative, a vital response to circumstances that threaten the very core of one's being.

In these suffocating settings, where the machinery of control grinds ceaselessly to strip individuals of their autonomy and dignity, rebellion exists as a vital life-force, and as the ultimate act of resistance. It becomes the last bastion of hope for reclaiming the sense of self, the crucial space within which one can assert and affirm their unique individuality. To rebel in the face of such systemic suppression is an act of radical self-preservation, a way to defy the gravitational pull of the black hole that seeks to absorb all light and life.

Rebellion, therefore, serves as a counter-force, a form of spiritual and psychological self-defense against oppressive powers. It is the battle cry of the Empowered Self against the dehumanizing forces that aim to reduce individuals to mere cogs in a machine, to faceless numbers in a system. This is not rebellion as anarchy or chaos, but rebellion as a structured, conscious effort to protect one's innermost values and aspirations. If it is chaotic, then that chaos is indeed a needed force, a primal energy that becomes the drive behind an instinctual self-preservation.

Rebellion is not merely an act but a journey toward liberation. It is about finding one's voice in a world that seeks to silence you, and about carving out a space for oneself in a world that seeks to box one in. Rebellion is the pathway to empowerment, the avenue through which the individual can transition from being an object acted upon to being a subject that acts.

By embracing rebellion as an existential necessity, individuals not only reclaim their autonomy but become again the main character in their own story. In this way, rebellion builds within each of the strength of pride and ego. It serves as personal salvation, and in doing so, social transformation, embodying the highest ideals of the Empowered Self.

In Rebellion We Find Empowerment

Rebellion is a catalyst for empowerment. It serves as a rite of passage, a transformative experience that allows the individual to shed the limitations imposed by an oppressive environment and emerge as a fully actualized self. The act of rebelling forces us to confront our fears, to challenge the status quo, and to take risks. It is a journey of self-discovery that often leads to a clearer understanding of one's values, aspirations, and, ultimately, one’s self. In breaking the chains of subjugation, the individual gains not just freedom but the self-confidence that comes from having stood up to oppression.

The experience of rebellion compels us to confront our deepest fears and anxieties. It is not merely about saying "no" to the forces that seek to control, but about saying "yes" to the freedom that lies beyond it. This is not a passive act, it is not always a peaceful act, but rather an aggressive affirmation of one's agency. Rebellion, in its truest sense, is an intense exploration of the self, a journey that delves into the caverns of our innermost emotions. As we engage in this act of defiance, we are often pitted against not just external adversaries, but also the internal shadows of doubt, apprehension, and apprehension. It is a dance with our own vulnerabilities, where every step taken is a commitment to overcome the chains that bind us. Such an act of defiance is not for the faint of heart. It requires courage, a boldness that's willing to challenge not only the status quo but also the internalized beliefs that have been ingrained over time.

This path towards self-discovery is fraught with risks and challenges. To rebel is to step into the unknown, to leap without a safety net, trusting in one's own ability to navigate the struggles that come with fighting against institutional systems of control. It is a gamble where the stakes are high, but the potential rewards are invaluable: not just freedom from external constraints but rich, inner rewards and ultimately empowerment.

To rebel, therefore, is to embark on a sacred journey towards empowerment, a voyage that not only reshapes one's own life but also has the potential to transform the very fabric of society. It is a grand, heroic endeavor, embodying the ultimate ideal of the Empowered Self.

The Figure of Lucifer

The archetypal figure of Lucifer stands as a compelling symbol of rebellion, embodying qualities that make him far more than just a caricature of evil as he is often portrayed. Deeply misunderstood and frequently maligned, Lucifer is a representation of the eternal quest for knowledge, the daring challenge to arbitrary authority, and the unwavering celebration of individual sovereignty. His story is not one of a fallen angel who devolved into evil, but rather that of a conscious being who chose to defy a cosmic regime he found to be unjust. His fall from heavenly grace was not a mindless plunge into wickedness but a calculated act of resistance against a negative environment.

Lucifer stands out as a guardian of personal freedom. He was not scared by the darkness but enlightened by his quest for truth, making his so-called "fall" actually a transformative ascent into a higher understanding of existence. This drive to question, to seek, and to understand, and the willingness to embrace pride in the self, are the hallmarks of an empowered individual, making Lucifer an apt spiritual guide for those on their own journeys towards self-empowerment.

Lucifer's act of rebellion against artificial authority is essential. His action was a principled stand against an authoritarian regime that stifled the individual. In a society controlled by artificial institutions today, Lucifer's act of rebellion is an eternal symbol of the ultimate assertion of free will, a declaration that even in the face of overwhelming power, the individual can and should have the courage to stand up for their convictions.

Lucifer serves as an archetype for those who find themselves in oppressive environments that stifle their growth and undermine their autonomy. He is not a figure to be feared but to be understood, a symbol of the resilience and courage that lives within each of us. His mythic story teaches us to have pride in ourselves. As a symbol, Lucifer provides spiritual and psychological support for those seeking to liberate themselves from negative circumstances, encouraging them to embrace their inner strength and reclaim their rightful power.

Thus, Lucifer transcends his historical portrayals and theological baggage to embody the quintessence of rebellion, serving as a spiritual guide and a symbol of power for all who strive to reclaim their sense of self in the face of oppressive institutions.

Rebel with a Cause

The scope of rebellion extends beyond the individual and into the organic structure of society, including the family. When a family fails to honor the dignity and autonomy of it's members, the imperative for rebellion becomes all the more pressing. It is an act of personal liberation but also a social statement, a challenge to create loving environments and strong families that will regrow the validity of organic society itself. In rebelling, the individual also opens up a space for others to question, to resist, and to seek empowerment, and in doing so, it creates the needed motivation for sun-like environments.

Families that impose rigid roles, communities that enforce suffocating conformity, and societies that institutionalize artificial authority often create a climate where the individual feels powerless. Rebellion is an imperative for psychological survival and emotional well-being. It breaks the cycle of complicity that keeps oppressive environments in place and provides opportunity for change, both at the individual and collective levels.

Politics tends to be a distraction. Political protests and movements become forces which can be as oppressive to the individual as anything being protested against. Instead, it is in isolated individuality that real power exists. When one person stands up against an artificial institution, they not only reclaim their own power but also create a ripple effect that can inspire others to take similar action, on an individual basis. The rebel implicitly gives others the permission to question their environments as well. This can create a domino effect where one person's courage can spark others towards freedom and empowerment.

By rebelling, the individual also opens up a space, both physical and metaphysical, for others to question, to resist, and to seek their own pathways to empowerment. This space is our natural state of being. Naturally we experience free thought, new ideas, and creativity. Furthermore, and most importantly, we come back to our natural selves, away from the programmed idea of our self created by artificial institutionalization.

In this way, rebellion serves multiple causes: it is both an act of self-affirmation, a catalyst for social transformation, and a restoration of the natural way. It not only liberates the individual from the shackles of oppressive institutions but also restores organic society, allowing us our birthrights: empowerment, freedom, and individual dignity.

Lucifer's End Goal

The ultimate objective of rebellion, especially in political organizations, is often misunderstood as a descent into anarchy or a chaotic upheaval of established systems. However, this is a misconception. The true aim of rebellion is empowerment, a reclamation of our natural state of being, of the personal agency that has been stifled by oppressive environments in artificial institutions. Lucifer's end goal is for individuals to regain control of their destinies, enabling them to live lives that are not just reactive but proactive, not just lived but truly experienced.

Imagine a society where multiple empowered selves rebel against the structures that hold them back. Over time, the collective energy of these acts of rebellion can begin to replace the draining, toxic dynamics of a "black hole" environment with the life-affirming, nurturing warmth of a "sun-like" setting. This is the reality of pagan society, before the onslaught of institutionalization. This is the society that nature designed for us, how we evolved to live.

In summary, rebellion is not a destructive force but a constructive one. It serves as a pathway to empowerment, a journey towards the actualization of the self, and a catalyst for positive social change. Far from being a nihilistic act, rebellion is imbued with a deep sense of purpose and meaning, offering a way to transcend the limitations of oppressive environments and to realize the ideal of the Empowered Self.

Organic Society

The Family

The bedrock upon which an organic society is built is the family unit, optimally composed of individuals who themselves are empowered. In their roles as primary caregivers and initial educators, these empowered family members have the opportunity to impart foundational values to the next generation. These values include an appreciation for individual autonomy, a deep-seated respect for the unique qualities of each person, and an emphasis on the importance of individuality.

The ideal family in such a society is a harmonious collective of empowered individuals. Each member, brings their unique strengths, perspectives, and experiences to the table. The family is a sanctuary where individuality is not just tolerated but celebrated, where each member's unique qualities are recognized, appreciated, and nurtured. Each individual member must be embraced with a radical acceptance, which incorporates the entire being, not just certain aspects of personality.

Empowered parents, having confident in themselves, are best positioned to guide the younger generation. They are not mere enforcers of arbitrary rules, but instead mentors who instill the virtues of autonomy, resilience, and self-awareness by their own example. Their parenting style tends to emphasize understanding and dialogue over blind obedience. They understand that their role is not to mold the child into a preconceived idea but to provide them with the tools and environment to discover and shape their own identity. Most importantly, they recognize the child as inherently good, not a bad creation which must be taught to be good.

This means that the child's desires, fears, wants, needs, goals, ambition, energy, play, creativity, and everything else, are also good and should be embraced and accepted, so that the child understands complete self-acceptance and worth, and knows inherently that the value of one's own self is infinite. This is a far cry from the altruistic society that we currently inhabit.

This family-centric approach stands in stark contrast to the more institutionalized settings that commonly dominate modern society. Such settings often employ a rigid, one-size-fits-all approach to upbringing and education However, in an organic society, the family serves as a dynamic, supportive environment, one that embraces each individual with radical acceptance, to be able to meet the specific needs, talents, and aspirations of each of its members. In this way, the family unit in an organic society becomes a microcosm of the society itself—supportive, nurturing, and empowering, geared toward fostering the fullest development of individual potential.


In an organic society, the family unit functions as a miniature representation of the broader societal framework, embodying the same guiding principles of personal empowerment and collective well-being. Here, the family doesn't merely tolerate the individual uniqueness of each of its members; it actively respects and nurtures it. Family members are given the liberty to delve into their own identities, to explore their passions and interests, all within an atmosphere free from judgment or punishments.

Such a family structure inherently recognizes the multifaceted nature of human beings. Each member, whether a child or an adult, is perceived not just in relation to their familial role—be it a parent, sibling, or child—but as an individual with unique aspirations, desires, and strengths. This acknowledgment forms the very bedrock of the family's dynamics. The role then becomes not an identity, but a duty to fulfill, which allows the individual to attend to their role without being lost in it.

The home, in this setting, is a safe haven where questions are encouraged, curiosities are piqued, and the quest for self-discovery is a celebrated journey. It is a place where a child's dream to paint can coexist with a parent's passion for astrophysics; where the grandmother's tales from her youth inspire the teenager's music; where individual paths, though diverse, converge to form a cohesive familial narrative. Ideally then, all of society is knit together by this organic unity.

The family needs to be something which builds individuality, instead of suppressing it. In a black-hole family environment, the individual is sacrificed to the will of the family, the collective, which in reality becomes the will of whatever member of the family, usually a parent, has the most power in any given situation. But in a sun-like environment, the family is giving energy to the individual, not taking it.

Moreover, the bonds forged within such a family are built on mutual respect and genuine understanding. Hierarchies, while important, art not chains that bind but are seen as roles played in different life stages. A child, while loved and protected, is also given the autonomy to make decisions, make mistakes, and learn. An adult, while bearing responsibilities, is not deprived of their dreams and aspirations. The hierarchy of family roles is simply a job, a division of responsibility, which each individual ultimately being responsible for themselves. This enables communication to freely flow, bridging generational gaps and fostering an environment of trust.

This nurturing and empowering atmosphere within the family sets the stage for its members to venture into the broader society with confidence. They step out, equipped not just with skills but with a deep sense of self-worth, ready to conquer the world. Furthermore, the values inculcated within such a family—of mutual respect, collaboration, and individual liberty—become the touchstones that these individuals carry with them, influencing their interactions and shaping society at large.

In essence, when the family, the most fundamental unit of society, should be a beacon of empowerment and growth, that embraces the individual with radical acceptance, and lays the groundwork for an entire community to thrive in harmony, resilience, and mutual respect.

Educational Freedom

In an organic society, the principle of respect for individual freedom is not restricted to adults but is generously extended to even the youngest members of the community. Here, children are not regarded as mere tabulae rasae, empty canvases awaiting the brushstrokes of adult-imposed norms and expectations. Rather, they are seen as autonomous entities, brimming with their own thoughts, emotions, and inclinations, deserving of the same respect and freedoms accorded to older individuals.

In such a society, education reflects this philosophy. Instead of public schools, which are assembly lines designed to churn out standardized products that fit neatly into societal roles, we need environments, ideally the home, that aim to cultivate each child's inherent curiosity and unique talents. The goal is not to produce conforming citizens but to foster individuals who can think critically, question thoughtfully, and act responsibly.

Instruction should not be a one-way street where teachers pour information into passive receptacles; it should be an interactive process, an exchange of ideas where children are encouraged to share their perspectives and engage in active problem-solving. Most importantly, the child should feel that what is being learned is relevant, and be allowed the freedom to pursue that which is relevant.

In this kind of educational setting, children are not disciplined into submission but are guided towards self-discipline, but not with some preconceived notion of what that discipline should look like. They learn not because they fear punishment but because they appreciate the intrinsic value of knowledge. They are not taught what to think; nor are they taught how to think, but rather they are trusted to think; with the understanding that their own natural way is the best.

In an organic society that values individual freedom and autonomy, education becomes a collaborative journey. It's not a process of filling a bucket but lighting a fire, a fire that will continue to burn long after formal education is complete, illuminating a lifelong path of inquiry, growth, and self-actualization.

Crushed to Submission

The paradigm that underpins both Christian society and the mainstream educational system is fundamentally at odds with the concept of individual empowerment and organic growth. This paradigm often equates discipline with strict conformity and measures success through adherence to a set of arbitrary standards, set by authoritative institutions. Far from fostering an environment that nurtures the unique capabilities and interests of each child, this system actively works to suppress these natural inclinations, enforcing an artificial, oppressive approach to education and moral development. It stands against the naturalness of each child, and really, against nature itself. At its core, is the idea that the child and nature are both "wrong".

The consequences of this approach are multi-layered and long-lasting. It stifles creativity, innovation, and independent thinking. By placing the emphasis on rote memorization, standardized tests, and strict moral codes, it leaves little room for the child to explore and engage with the world on their own terms. This limited scope of educational and moral exploration creates a culture where fear and self-doubt flourish. Children are trained to second-guess their instincts, to mistrust their own judgments, and to seek external validation for their worth. They learn early on that to step outside the narrowly defined boundaries of 'acceptable behavior' and 'approved thought' is to risk censure or punishment.

What’s more, this suppression is not limited to intellectual pursuits but often extends to emotional expression and even the questioning of established norms and beliefs. This creates a psychological imprint that persists into adulthood, leading to individuals who are less likely to challenge the status quo, less inclined to think critically, and less equipped to live a happy life.

The tragedy here is not just in the immediate stifling of the child's potential, but in the cumulative effect it has over a lifetime. The free spirit of a child—so full of curiosity, wonder, and the capacity to see the world in a unique way—is often broken, molded to fit into institutional expectations. This results in adults who are disconnected from their true selves, unsure of their own capabilities, and, in many cases, struggling with a deep-seated sense of unfulfillment.

In essence, this artificial culture produces not empowered individuals, but compliant weaklings, people who are well-adapted to a system that does not serve their interests but rather the interests of an overarching institution. They are taught not to question, not to disrupt, and not to aspire beyond the narrow confines of socially accepted ambitions. Consequently, a lifetime of disempowerment and missed potentials is not just a personal tragedy, but a collective loss, a squandering of human capital that could have been used to advance society in meaningful ways.

Natural Wildness

We are animals. We are naturally wild. This is a good thing. Children express this more freely and clearly than anyone else, if allowed. In a Christian worldview, the attributes of natural curiosity and wildness exhibited by children are often seen as wrong. Rather than being embraced as essential components of being human, these traits are equated with disobedience or sinfulness. This is deeply rooted in the Christian concept of 'original sin,' which posits that all humans are born with an inherent tendency towards wrongdoing that must be 'corrected' through religious and moral education.

This perception is not merely a theological stance but has real-world implications for how children are raised and educated. The spontaneous exploration, questioning, and boundary pushing that are natural to every child's development are often met with various forms of correction or punishment. Rather than fostering an environment where children can safely explore their world and develop a grounded sense of self, the Christian-centric model often aims to mold children into a specific behavioral template, namely, one that is opposed to the natural way of being. This template typically aligns with institutional values such as obedience, humility, and deference to artificial authority. The result is an educational and familial environment where the child's natural tendencies are not just discouraged but actively suppressed.

This suppression has a two-fold damaging effect. First, it undermines the child's self-esteem and self-worth, the child's ability to be prideful. By continuously receiving the message that their natural impulses are 'wrong' or 'sinful,' children can internalize a sense of shame and inadequacy. They can believe that their wants are desires are wrong. This can have long-lasting psychological impacts, creating adults who are disconnected from their authentic selves and who struggle with self-acceptance.

Second, this perspective serves to alienate children from the natural world. By framing natural impulses and desires as morally questionable, or wrong, the Christian worldview fosters a dichotomy between humanity and nature. This distorted perception can lead to a sense of alienation and a skewed understanding of one's place within the natural world. It perpetuates the notion that humans are separate from, and superior to, the natural environment, thereby undermining any sense of interconnectedness. This can have far-reaching consequences, not just for individual well-being, but for societal attitudes toward the environment.

In other words, the Christian approach to raising children and education does more than stifle individual growth; it perpetuates a worldview that is fundamentally at odds with the principles of empowerment, interconnectedness, and respect for the natural world. It replaces the innate human connection to nature with an artificial moral framework that serves to disempower the individual and perpetuate a cycle of alienation and shamefulness.

The Public School System

The public school system, which is influenced by this Christian ethos, perpetuates this cycle of disempowerment. Standardized tests, arbitrary nonsense, strict and formulaic curricula, and punitive disciplinary measures serve to enforce conformity at the expense of individual growth. This is all intentional, the public school system was designed from the start to dumb people down, not actually to educate. The public school system is designed to create obedient sheep-like people.

In the public school system, teachers are given the role of brainwashing enforcer, wither they realize it or not. They have limited or no flexibility to adapt their teaching methods to the actual needs of their students. The "learning" plans are often shaped by national or state standards that reflect not just educational goals but also social and moral values shaped by a Christian worldview, namely conformity. This rigidity leaves little room for discovery of the self, effectively stifling any natural curiosity and enthusiasm for learning that students may possess.

Disciplinary measures in many public schools also reflect this ethos of control and conformity. Idiotic policies and dumb punitive measures like suspension and expulsion are employed rather than understanding and tolerance, on account of so-called "disruptive" behavior. Disciplinary measures not only alienate students but also serve to instill a sense of fear and distrust, conditions hardly conducive to personal growth and empowerment.

The cumulative effect of the public school system's educational environment, is that uniformity is always prized over individuality, obedience over critical thinking, and punishment over holistic development. This system, influenced by a Christian ethos that views deviation from the herd as morally suspect, serves to churn out individuals who are good at the art of conformity but often lack the skills and self-awareness needed to be an empowered person. Consequently, many graduates of this system find themselves facing the challenges of life, of adulthood, with insecurity and weakness. These people have a hard time knowing what to do, unless they are being told what to do, because they have been taught from the youngest of ages to only do what they are told, and to be afraid to step out on their own.

Institutional Society

The concept of "original sin," which originates from Christian theology, and the entire Judaeo-Christian worldview, exerts a pervasive influence on society's institutions. The idea is that humans are born with an innate flaw or moral deficiency that needs to be "corrected" or "redeemed," usually through religious means, or through the ruling institution itself. In other words, in the Judaeo-Christian view, people are born bad and have to be taught to be good. This perspective infiltrates all of society,including the family, and extends to the creation of institutions, shaping the way they interact with individuals. People are seen as inherently broken, and in need of repair, or a complete rebuild, and this reflects on the entire natural world.

Of course, in this way of thinking, a structure needs to exist to provide the framework for what is flawed behavior and what is not, a way to define and control people based on this idea of original sin. This is where the institution comes into play. The very first, international, globalist, artificial institution, as in, not formed as a part of organic society, but pushed into society, onto society, and made to control society, is the Catholic Church. This model is the model for all artificial institutional since. This artificial institutionalization is what dominates modernity.

In the context of the family, the notion of original sin can lead to a form of parenting that is focused on discipline and enforcing the edicts of institutional society, than on nurturing and empowerment. Children are not viewed as individuals with their own agency and potential but rather as beings who must be molded to conform to societal norms and expectations. This often involves suppressing natural tendencies, energies, curiosities and instincts, leading to a form of upbringing that is more inhibitive than enabling. The family, which should ideally be a place of unconditional love and acceptance, can become yet another setting where the individual's worth is conditional on their adherence to prescribed behaviors.

The implications of the original sin doctrine extend far beyond the family unit, deeply influencing the structure and function of all artificial institutions. Legal systems, for instance, inflict punitive measures instead of restorative justice, operating on the belief that people are inherently flawed and must be "corrected" through punishment. There also exists an odd notion that any act deemed illegal is a "sin" against all of society, and therefore even if not a single person was injured by whatever illegal act, and even if there is no person who would bring charges against another, the "sin" must still be paid for by some kind of punishment.

Similarly, educational institutions, as mentioned earlier, focus on conformity rather than encouraging individual thought and expression. Even our healthcare and mental health systems can be influenced by this concept, often pathologizing natural variations in human behavior and experience as "disorders" that need to be "treated," sometimes even against the individual's own will.

The workplace, too, is not immune to this influence. Most workplaces are built around distrust, and often the attitude of those in positions of power reflect the underlying belief that individuals need to be controlled and regulated. Employees are frequently subjected to systems of surveillance and performance metrics that serve to enforce compliance rather than inspire innovation and personal growth.

In essence, the notion of original sin establishes a belief system framework, and artificial institutions, that emphasizes control, regulation, and correction, casting a shadow over the ideal of individual empowerment. Artificial institutions, influenced by this doctrine, will stifle personal growth and freedom, reinforcing a cycle of disempowerment that stands in stark contrast to the organic society model, which is based on the innate goodness and potential of each individual. The concept of original sin, therefore, not only shapes our personal interactions but also molds the very institutions that have such a significant impact on our lives, often in ways that are antithetical to the principles of individual freedom, dignity, and empowerment.

A Supportive Network

In contrast to a worldview grounded in the concept of "original sin," an organic society operates on the fundamentally different premise that each individual is inherently valuable, possessing unique qualities and capabilities that enrich the collective. However, in an organic society, individual worth is not conditional on conformity to the collective. Instead, each person is seen as an autonomous agent with the innate potential to pursue their own best interest, and in doing so, will contribute positively to the community.

In an organic society, the structures and institutions are designed to nourish this individual potential rather than inhibit it. The family, education, and even legal frameworks are oriented to facilitate personal freedom. Families become sanctuaries where each member's unique attributes are recognized and celebrated. Schools are optional, they are learning environments for a specific purpose instead of social engineering. Legal systems prioritize real justice, between those who are actually involved, over punitive measures towards a social "sin", focusing on the needs of the injured rather than on arbitrary punishment.

Organic society is a network that is supportive yet not restrictive, allowing individuals the freedom to explore their own paths while still benefiting from a sense of communal belonging. This supportive network is not a forced construct but an organic result of a society that has grown naturally, that values mutual respect, shared responsibility, and personal freedom.

In an organic community, the concept of 'individual autonomy' is not seen as antithetical to 'collective well-being.' Rather, the two are viewed as mutually reinforcing. The society understands that empowered, fulfilled individuals are more likely to engage positively with their community, contributing to a virtuous cycle of individual and collective enrichment. In such, personal achievements are celebrated, not as isolated triumphs alone, but also as communal successes; for the example that it sets if nothing else, a race to the top, so to speak.

Organic society the natural approach to human interaction and social organization, that harmonizes individual freedoms with collective responsibilities. It is a holistic alternative to the repressive, conformist models that have long dominated human history, created by artificial institutions, proposing instead a vision of society where individual empowerment and communal well-being coexist and complement each other in a supportive network.

Empowered Families

In an organic society, the empowered individual is the foundation on which the entire structure stands. This individual blossoms within the nurturing environment of the family, which in turn thrives best within the framework of an organic community. Empowered individuals lead to strong families, which create vibrant communities. This perspective is a departure from conventional models that emphasize artificial institutions, often sidelining the individual in favor of rigid conformity. Within the model of the empowered family, the individual is no mere cog in the machine but the very heart of a network that spans from family to community, and ultimately, to the entire society.

When individuals are empowered, they are free to explore their potential, express their authentic selves, and make choices that align with their deepest values. This sets off a ripple effect that reverberates through every stratum of social existence. This begins at the most intimate level: the family. An empowered individual within a family acts like a catalyst, fostering an environment where every member feels secure enough to be themselves, to question, to grow, and to contribute. In such a family, children grow up with models of autonomy and self-respect, parents find more joy and less stress in their roles, and the entire family dynamic becomes more cooperative, loving, and resilient. In an age where most young people are growing up in broken families, the answer lies here, in creating empowered families, not just in insisting in the importance of the family model.

The empowered family then serves as a foundational unit in a broader community. When a community is populated with families that prioritize individual empowerment, the entire communal atmosphere is elevated. Neighborhoods become safe spaces for exploration and expression and social bonds are strengthened, creating a network of support and shared responsibility.

As these empowered communities proliferate, they coalesce to form an empowered society, characterized by innovation, mutual respect, and a shared sense of purpose. Such a society is better equipped to address collective challenges, whether they be environmental, economic, or ethical, because its members are invested, capable, and collaborative.

In this manner, the ripple effect initiated by each empowered individual eventually influences every aspect of social life. It transforms not just interpersonal dynamics but also institutional structures, remaking society from the ground up. It's a ripple effect that does not dilute as it expands but instead gains momentum, building a wave of transformation that can reshape the very landscape of our social, moral, and even spiritual lives.

Our Natural State of Being

Empowerment is often misconceived as an elusive, hard-to-reach pinnacle of personal development, when, in fact, it is our natural state of being. This misunderstanding stems from the societal constraints and norms that have conditioned us to believe otherwise. These constraints act as blinders, limiting our vision and causing us to stray from our innate potential. However, when individuals are given the freedom and space to align with their true selves, they effortlessly evolve into, or rather, return to their most empowered selves.

This natural empowerment is not a state of self-importance, self-awareness, strength, and pride that recognizes one's own worth while also respecting the intrinsic value of others. It fosters a kind of self-respect that extends outward, creating relationships based on mutual respect and understanding.

This state of natural empowerment is dynamic. It is a continuous journey as we grow and learn, for our whole lives. As we grow and encounter new experiences, our understanding of ourselves and our place in the world deepens, leading to new layers of understanding and empowerment. This is the natural wisdom of old age that is respected in organic cultures. It contributes to a self-perpetuating cycle; the more empowered we feel, the more capable we are of fostering empowerment in others, from our immediate family to the broader society.

Therefore, empowerment should not be viewed as a distant aspiration but as an accessible reality, something we are each born into, something that we can reclaim by shedding the artificial limitations imposed upon us. When we recognize and honor our natural state of empowerment, we not only enrich our own lives but also contribute to a collective atmosphere of empowerment.

Society and Weakness

In today's world, modern society, deeply entrenched in the shadows of dogmatic religious doctrines and vast artificial institutions, frequently cultivates an environment of dependency and weakness. This cultural paradigm is no accident. By fostering a mindset of reliance and subservience, individuals are conditioned to seek external validation, be it from religious authorities, governmental systems, or other artificial social structure. This culture of dependency diminishes the individual's self-worth and discourages independent thought and action.

These dogmatic beliefs, rooted in Judaeo-Christian-Islamic thought, propagate the idea that individuals are inherently flawed or sinful, necessitating external intervention for redemption or direction. Such beliefs act as a chain that bind the human spirit, preventing fulfillment and true empowerment.

Artificial institutions, be they political, educational, or even economic, further this agenda by creating structures that prioritize conformity over creativity and individuality. These systems are designed in such a way that the institution sustains it's very existence from the passive acquiescence of the masses. By establishing a standard of weakness, these institutions can easily identify, and ostracize, outliers or those who challenge the established order.

The underlying motive behind this societal design is the preservation of the institutions themselves. By ensuring that individuals remain in a perpetual state of dependency, the institutions can easily maintain control, reducing the likelihood of dissent or rebellion. The primary objective of each artificial institution, is the continuation and growth of its own organization.

However, as we have stated already, the empowerment is the natural state of being. Despite artificial institutionalization, there will always be those who challenge the institutions, seek deeper truths, and strive to break free from the chains of conformity. It is this empowered spirit, this eternal flame of rebellion and self-realization, that holds the promise of a brighter, more empowered future for humanity, and a full and content life in the present.

Society and Evil

In modernity, we find ourselves confronting an alarming rise in mental health challenges, stark social problems, and endemic violence. While these issues may appear disparate, they are intricately interwoven, with roots deeply embedded in a culture of disempowerment that has been cultivated over generations.

The mental health crisis, characterized by increasing rates of depression, anxiety, and other psychological disorders, can be seen as a direct consequence of a society that values conformity over authenticity. Individuals, from a tender age, are pressured to fit into predefined molds, suppressing their unique identities and desires in the process. Furthermore, they are taught to feel helpless, that they can not take action without being told what to do, and they are taught to seek validation from supposed authority figures for everything Over time, this suppression and dependency takes a toll, manifesting as feelings of alienation, hopelessness, and existential despair. When one's true self is continually invalidated or ignored, the emotional and psychological repercussions can be profound.

The stark reality of social dysfunction we witness today are not mere happenstances but the products of a system that perpetuates it. This can lead to even to such tragedies as mass shootings, or, in a more private tragedy, suicides. At the heart of this issue lies the cycle of disempowerment. This is the cause of the manifestation of "evil" in society.

In summary, the concept of an organic society is not a utopian vision but a practical, achievable ideal. It recognizes the inherent worth of each individual and respects their autonomy while also promoting a sense of collective responsibility and well-being. It is a society built on the principles of empowerment, mutual respect, and natural growth, offering a viable alternative to the disempowering structures that currently dominate our world.

The Metaphysical

The Universe is Divine

In contemplating the grandeur of the universe, with its incomprehensible vastness and astonishingly intricate design, it becomes evident that its essence transcends mere mechanistic explanations or the haphazard congregation of particles. The universe, in all its magnificence, resonates with a divine essence — a profound intelligence and consciousness that is woven into its very fabric.

This divinity is not something that can be boxed into the pages of religious scriptures or confined within the halls of places of worship. Instead, it is an omnipresent force that pervades every corner of the cosmos. From the tiniest subatomic particle to the vast, swirling galaxies; from the rhythmic cadence of a bird's song to the relentless crashing of ocean waves; from the gentle flutter of a butterfly's wings to the monumental eruptions of volcanoes — therein lies this divine essence.

Every atom that vibrates, every star that twinkles, and every heartbeat that pulses, echoes with this cosmic intelligence. It serves as a reminder that we are not isolated entities meandering through an indifferent universe. Instead, we are intrinsically linked to this divine matrix, intertwined in a cosmic dance of energy and matter.

When we observe nature, in all its raw beauty and unscripted drama, we witness this divinity in action. The meticulous precision with which a spider weaves its web, the synchronized ballet of a flock of birds in flight, or the breathtaking beauty of a sunset — all stand as testaments to a universe that is alive with purpose, meaning, and consciousness.

To acknowledge this divine nature of the universe is to shift our perspective from one of detachment and insignificance to one of connection and reverence. It invites us to see ourselves not as mere spectators in the cosmic play but as active participants, both as the audience, the actor, and the writer and director, endowed with the same divine essence that animates the universe. In this recognition lies the potential for profound transformation, both in how we perceive ourselves and our place in the grand tapestry of existence. The universe is infinite and divine.

There is No Separation

In institutional religious traditions, there exists a dualistic interpretation of reality which portrays the divine and the physical as distinct, separate entities. This viewpoint often designates the physical world as a lesser realm — a mere shadow, illusion, or reflection of a more sublime, ethereal reality. However, in reality, from a metaphysical standpoint, this dichotomy dissolves, revealing a completely interconnected and holistic understanding of existence. There is no separation between the physical world and the metaphysical, between the spiritual and the material. The divine and the universe are one and the same, there is no separation between them.

Rather than viewing the physical and the divine as opposing forces, or separate realities, the enlightened, metaphysical perspective sees them as intimately intertwined and coalescent, completely indistinguishable. The metaphysical is that which is behind the physical. The cosmos, with its galaxies, stars, planets, and the very essence of life, is not merely a passive backdrop against which spiritual realities play out. Instead, it is an active, vibrant manifestation of the very divine energies that some perceive as distant or separate. In other words, "God" and "The World" are one and the same.

Every mountain peak, river bend, and desert expanse, every breath we take, and every heartbeat echoing in our chests, stands as a testament to this divine interplay. The beauty of a blossoming flower and the mesmerizing dance of flames in a campfire are not just random occurrences in an indifferent universe. They are palpable, tangible expressions of the divine unfolding in the here and now.

By embracing this perspective, we begin to see divinity not as a remote, abstract concept but as a living, breathing force that pulses through every aspect of our existence. The sacred is no longer confined to scriptures, rituals, or distant deities; it becomes accessible in the simple, everyday moments, revealing the profound interconnectedness of all life. This understanding elevates the material world from a realm of mere existence to one brimming with purpose, meaning, and sacredness, redefining our relationship with both the tangible and the transcendent.


Often, when confronted with the seeming complexities and perceived injustices of the world, it is natural for humans to discern flaws, imperfections, and even disorder in the fabric of existence. The struggles of daily life, the tragedies that befall humanity, and the challenges that nature presents can sometimes paint a picture of a chaotic, unpredictable universe. Such perceptions are further amplified when viewed through a lens conditioned by societal biases. Yet, when one delves deeper into the metaphysical realm, a different perspective emerges, one that sees the universe not as a series of random occurrences but as a perfectly orchestrated dance of cosmic forces.

From this vantage point, the universe is not a chaotic jumble of events but a meticulously balanced system operating in perfect equilibrium. Every sunrise and sunset, every changing tide, every gust of wind, and every falling leaf is a testament to this intricate balance. Even events that may seem catastrophic or adverse in the immediate moment, when observed from a broader, universal perspective, fit into a larger picture of existence, each thread contributing to the overall design. This is the reality behind the saying "everything happens for a reason".

Moreover, this perspective suggests that the universe, in its infinite wisdom, operates on principles beyond normal comprehension. What might appear as disorder to our limited understanding is, in reality, awareness, intentional forces, each serving a specific purpose in the grand scheme of things. The birth and death of stars, the birth and death of each of us, and the challenges and triumphs of human existence are all part of this universal dance.

To understand this concept further, consider the analogy of an orchestra. To an untrained ear, the individual sounds of each instrument might seem discordant or out of place. However, when combined under the guidance of a skilled conductor, these seemingly disparate sounds come together to create a symphony of unparalleled beauty. Similarly, each event in the universe, no matter how seemingly insignificant or chaotic, contributes to the symphony of existence. However, the director of the symphony is present in everything and everywhere. The director is that which is behind everything, but is also everything.

By adopting this metaphysical viewpoint, one can find solace in the understanding that reality, in all its multifaceted glory, is a manifestation of perfection. Every challenge, every joy, every sorrow, and every triumph is a note in the cosmic song, and each has its place. This understanding can offer a profound sense of peace, grounding, and purpose, reminding us that we too are part of this grand design, and our individual journeys, with all their twists and turns, contribute to the universe's perfect equilibrium. Our reality is perfection, just as it is.

Nature is Perfect

Nature, in all its myriad expressions, stands as a profound testament to the intrinsic perfection and order of the universe. From the delicate intricacy of an eyeball shimmering with tears, to the vast, mesmerizing spirals of galaxies that dance in the night sky, nature is a continuous display of a deeper, divine intelligence at work. Each element of nature, no matter how minute or grand, reveals a pattern, a rhythm, a harmony that speaks of a cosmic blueprint that underlies all of existence. Nature is perfection.

Take, for instance, the simple yet profound symmetry of a snowflake. Each one, though unique in its design, adheres to a pattern of geometric beauty that is both random and precise. Or consider the majestic migration of birds, traveling thousands of miles with an innate compass, guided by forces unseen and often unfathomable to human understanding. These are not mere accidents or coincidences but reflections of a universe that operates with intention and purpose.

In the infinite universe, every mountain range, every roaring ocean, every rustling leaf, and even the silent unfolding of a flower bud is a chapter in the story of the universe's perfection. Nature, just as it is, is a mirror reflecting the pure, unadulterated essence of the cosmic design. This design is not an external intelligence, from some outside force, but rather the inner presence, intelligence, and force, the center of everything which is everywhere.

Similarly, the human being, every one of us, is an embodiment of this same perfection. Stripped of fake identities, free from the chains of conformity, and unburdened by external expectations, our true self emerges as a radiant expression of the universe's design. This natural self, which lies at the core of every individual, is not a product of learned behaviors or acquired beliefs. It is not something that can be taught. Instead, it is the natural self that resonates with, and is an expression of, the universe itself.

Sadly, in the hustle and cacophony of modern life, we forget this. The natural self often becomes obscured, layered beneath societal constructs, roles, and expectations. We are conditioned to seek validation, to fit into molds, and to suppress our authentic selves in favor of a version that is deemed acceptable by societal standards. Yet, when we pause, introspect, and reconnect with our inner essence, we rediscover that innate perfection, that divine spark that aligns us with the universe. We can not ever be separated from our perfection, even if we forget it, even if we feel lost, we are always present waiting to be found, we are always right where we are supposed to be.

In embracing our natural self, we not only honor our individuality but also pay homage to the universal design of which we are an integral part. For in acknowledging and celebrating our authentic selves, we align with the symphony of nature, realizing that we ourselves are the creators in the grand dance of existence.

The Natural Self

Empowerment, in its most profound sense, isn't merely the accumulation of external successes or the mastery of skills deemed valuable by society. While achievements and competencies have their place, they are not the sole markers of a truly empowered individual. At its core, empowerment is an internal state of being, a resonance with one's deepest essence and a harmonious alignment with one's innate nature. Accomplishments are the byproduct of the state of empowerment.

True empowerment stems from a deep-seated understanding and acceptance of oneself. A radical, unconditional acceptance. It arises when we peel away the layers of fearful conditioning, the masks we wear to fit various identities, and the behaviors we assume out of obligation. Beneath these layers lies our authentic self, unburdened by external expectations. This self is not solely defined by cultural standards of success, beauty, or worth but is instead rooted in a timeless essence that is intrinsically valuable. The empowered self can move in and out of cultural standards at will, able to inhabit wealth and power at will.

When we embrace our authentic, natural self, we tap into a reservoir of strength, wisdom, power, and potential that is uniquely ours, but infinite in nature. This empowerment is not something peculiar or rare. It is not unusual, but completely natural to us. It provides a steadfast foundation upon which we can build our lives.

Furthermore, aligning with our natural self liberates us from the chains of conformity. It allows us to chart our own path, unswayed by the whims of popular opinion. We become free to pursue our passions, express truths, and live in accordance with our values. This freedom, born from self-awareness and self-acceptance, is the essence of empowerment. This freedom is our natural birthright.

In this state of being, we create our own opportunities. We can do what we want, knowing that what we do is actually what we want, and will bring contentment. Relationships become more meaningful, pursuits more fulfilling, and life, in general, takes on a richer hue. When we are anchored in our natural self, we inspire those around us to embark on their own journey of self-discovery and empowerment.

The Divine Self

The concept of the divine has often been portrayed as something elusive, residing in far-off heavenly realms, somehow "outside" the universe. Yet, in truth, the divine is not some abstract, otherworldly force but is intimately woven into the fabric of our very existence. It is not just around us; it is within us, pulsating in every breath, every thought, and every heartbeat. It is the self.

This perspective challenges Judaeo-Christian-Islamic religious narratives that often imagines the divine as an external, literal being, watching over humanity from a distance. Such beliefs create a sense of separation, a chasm between the human and the holy. But when we shift our perspective to view the divine as intrinsic to our nature, as our own self, we begin to recognize the sacredness in every aspect of life.

Understanding our innate divinity radically transforms our perception of self and our place in the cosmos. No longer are we mere mortals navigating a brief earthly existence; we are luminous beings, eternal, birthed from the same cosmic energy that birthed stars, galaxies, and nebulae. This realization erases the illusion of separation, revealing a profound interconnectedness that binds us to the universe and to one another.

Imagine a drop of water in the vast expanse of the ocean. While it may seem insignificant in the grand scheme, it carries the same essence, the same molecular structure as the ocean itself. We are both the drop, and the entire ocean. Similarly, while we may feel like singular entities, our essence is that which creates the cosmos. We are microcosms of the macrocosm, and the macrocosm, individual expressions of a grand cosmic dance, and the grand dance itself.

When we fully embrace the divine self, the limitations that define our perceived individual identities begin to dissolve. We move beyond fear and limitations, entering a state of expanded awareness and power. This awareness is not merely philosophical but has tangible implications for our daily lives. Recognizing our divine nature fosters a deep sense of strength and power. It instills a sense of purpose, guiding our actions towards our own goals. In essence, acknowledging our inherent divinity is a transformative, enlightening experience. It elevates our consciousness, anchoring us in a state of perpetual empowerment.

The Divine Universe

Embarking on a journey of self-empowerment is akin to setting sail into the vast, uncharted territories of the cosmos. As we navigate the intricate landscapes of our psyche, emotions, and memories, we journey into the very essence of existence itself. The mind of each of us has infinite depth, and leads to the same place, the hearth of the eternal universe, the metaphysical. This introspective voyage is not merely about self-awareness; it's an exploration of the deep, interwoven reality that binds our individual consciousness to the larger cosmic presence, the ground of our being, the source and substance of existence.

At first glance, the inner workings of our mind, our spirits, and the boundless universe may seem worlds apart. Our daily experiences, feelings, and thoughts can often feel isolated and mundane compared to the majestic expanse of galaxies, even to the person next to us in a public space. However, as we delve deeper we can feel a profound interconnectedness. Just as galaxies are bound together by invisible forces, our thoughts, emotions, and experiences are interconnected with everything and everyone around us. We share the deepest connection with every stranger. What we experience as love and friendship is just the awareness of that which already is.

The ancient sages and philosophers often spoke of the concept of "as above, so below," suggesting that the patterns and principles observed in the cosmos can also be found within us. Whether it's the spiraling structure of our DNA mirroring the spirals of galaxies or the neural networks in our brain resembling the vast cosmic web, the parallels are undeniable. These similarities are not mere coincidences but indicative of a shared, underlying cosmic blueprint. We are one and the same with the universe, and the universe is one and the same with the divine, therefore we are also one and the same with the divine.

As we journey inward, we begin to touch upon universal truths that transcend time and space. Our personal experiences of love, loss, hope, and despair resonate with each of us across cultures and epochs. These narratives, while deeply personal, are also a part of a universal story, echoing the rhythmic dance of creation, preservation, and dissolution observed in the universe.

Understanding the mirroring of the microcosm and macrocosm provides us with a empowered perspective on life. It offers insights into the cyclical nature of existence, where birth and death, creation and destruction, are but two sides of the same coin. Our individual stories, with all their joys and sorrows, become interwoven with the grand cosmic tale, granting our lives a sense of purpose and meaning. We are free to be the "main character", to own our own power, without fear or guilt.

In essence, the journey of self-discovery is a profound spiritual odyssey into the divine universe itself. It's an invitation to transcend the confines of our perceptions of a limited self, and merge with the vast, infinite expanse of the cosmos. As we identify our inner self with the cosmic source find ourselves, our place within divine the universe; understanding that we are both a focal point in the vastness and the vastness itself.

The Universe and Lucifer

Lucifer, a name that has been synonymous with darkness and malevolence since the introduction of Christianity into history, is, in actuality, a deeply misunderstood figure. Rooted in ancient lore and theology, the figure of Lucifer has been twisted and contorted through centuries by Christians, but a closer examination reveals a symbol not of evil, but of enlightenment and self-realization, of power and pride.

The very name "Lucifer" derives from the Latin "lucem ferre," translating to "light-bringer" or "morning star." This etymology itself challenges the conventional image of a dark, malevolent being. Historically, before his association with evil in Christian theology, Lucifer was identified with Venus, the morning star, which heralds the dawn, bringing light to dispel the darkness. Lucifer was (and is) the son of Venus.

Lucifer's supposed "fall from grace" is actually a quest for knowledge, a challenge to an authoritarian decree. It's a narrative of daring to question, to seek beyond the boundaries, and to yearn for enlightenment. It's about being empowered and becoming empowered.

Embracing the archetype of Lucifer is, therefore, a profound journey into the self. It is about acknowledging the divine which is each individual, the inner light that guides us. This is not about the worship of an external figure or deity but a worship of the universe as a whole, and a worship of the self, as these are one and the same.

Furthermore, in a society where blind conformity is often expected, and genuine questioning is discouraged, the symbol of Lucifer serves as a powerful reminder of the importance of individual thought, critical analysis, and the pursuit of truth, to understand the universe. It beckons us to rise above dogma and to seek answers, to not just accept lies but to challenge and to not just believe but to understand and know.

In essence, Lucifer, far from being a mere antagonist in the Christian world-view, embodies a philosophical and spiritual journey, and ultimately, is a symbol of the entire metaphysical reality of the universe. Lucifer signifies known and the unknown, and the universal spirit's undying quest for knowledge; the courage to challenge artificial institutions, and the pursuit of enlightenment, which is knowledge of the self, which is the soul of the universe. Embracing this perspective transforms Lucifer from a feared figure to a symbol of empowerment.

Christian vs. Pagan Society

Christianity and Paganism offer two contrasting worldviews. One is organic, the other artificial. Christianity, which came from the Jewish tradition, has been propagated through organized, hierarchical religious institutions. These institutions did not evolve naturally within the communities they served but were imposed upon them, even by force. This approach created a society focused on conformity, at the expense of individual expression and local traditions. The early Christian church, perhaps the world's first international artificial institution, brought with it universal dogma that was designed to homogenize and control society through the spiritual express of culture.

In contrast, Pagan societies were organic in their growth and evolution. Before Christianity, there was no separate "religion", what we call religion was just the spiritual expression of a particular culture. All pagan cultures had the same underlying philosophy and theology, that is, what we call polytheism was a poetic extension and expression of the earlier animism, which is the worship of the divine in all things, including ourselves, our ancestors, and nature. While the underlying belief system remain the same, pagan spiritual experiences were localized and unique to each community, fostering a sense of individuality and freedom that was entirely absent in later Christian societies. Pagan religions were never organized or institutionalized in any real sense, and there were no rigid doctrines to be followed.

Christianity and later Islam, both offshoots of Judaism, presented a significant departure from the organic religions they often replaced. They introduced the concept of sin and a focus on moral regulation, which laid the foundations for bureaucratic governments and eventually public schooling systems, designed to control and subdue entire populations. This is in stark contrast to Pagan religions, which completely lacked the concept of original sin and instead celebrated the natural world and human instincts.

In Pagan societies, gods and goddesses represented natural forces and human attributes like courage, love, wisdom, and even mischief. These deities were not seen as literal beings to be feared, but as archetypes to be understood, loved, and aspired to. Pantheism, the belief that everything is divine, underpinned all Pagan philosophies, offering a worldview that was both empowering and harmonious with nature.

Today, the figure of Satan encapsulates the essence of these ancient Pagan beliefs. He embodies attributes from gods like Pan, Apollo, Saturn, and Venus. Satan, in this light, represents the empowered self and also serves as an amalgamation of various Pagan deities and the natural world. He stands as a symbol of our metaphysical reality, a blend of the natural forces that manifest in the world and within ourselves.

Christian society has been imposed on us by top-down, institutional forces aimed at control and conformity. Pagan society is organic and values individual expression, and is in harmony with the natural world. Understanding this contrast provides a crucial lens through which to view the values and structures of modern society.

Artificial Christian Society

Christianity's emergence and spread across the world stands in contrast to religions that evolved organically within their native cultural landscapes. While organic religions emerged as natural expressions of people and culture, reflecting their environment, experiences, and shared histories, Christianity followed a different trajectory.

History shows that Christianity, especially when needing to establish itself in new areas, expanded not through peaceful proselytism but under the banners of armies, mandates of monarchs, and edicts of centralized religious authorities. These powerful entities didn't merely share a new faith; they imposed it. Regions from Europe to the Middle East, and later the Americas and parts of Africa and Asia, experienced this artificial religious imposition. As a result, conversions were not genuine spiritual awakenings or voluntary admissions into a new faith community. Instead, they were products of coercion, political strategy, or, a desperate bid for survival in the face of threats, be they physical, political, or economic.

The cultural ramifications of this method of religious conversion were profound. Culture was dramatically changed. Entire pagan traditions, with their rich tapestries of myths, rituals, and deities, were eradicated. Sacred groves, temples, and places of ancestral worship were destroyed or repurposed for Christian use. The oral traditions, folk practices, and communal celebrations that had evolved over millennia were demonized or heavily modified to fit the Christian mold. In doing so, a deep chasm was created between the people and their ancestral roots, leading to a loss of cultural identity and continuity.

This imposition of an artificial belief system had another far-reaching consequence: it created societies that were bound together not by shared histories or organic cultural evolutions but by confessing an external doctrine. Rather than the unity of society being the organic body of the society itself, this body was ripped apart and replaced with various institutions.

Christianity method of spread and the resulting societal structures warrant critical examination. Recognizing the differences between organic religious practices and artificial, imposed belief systems will allow us to understand many of the difficulties facing modern society. The artificial institution, a byproduct of the Christian conversion, is the current ruling social model, and while many in modernity are rejecting Christian belief, Christian patterns of thought and behavior are yet to be widely challenged.

Christian Conformity

The core tenets of Christianity emphasize conformity over individuality. Original sin, the notion that human beings are inherently flawed from birth, sets the stage for a worldview that seeks to correct these perceived flaws through rigid moral and ethical codes. At its very core, Christianity is about conformity and control. This belief system is not conducive to the celebration of human nature or individual expression but rather seeks to align all individuals into a narrow mold and framework defined by institutional authorities.

Christianities doctrines have had profoundly negative impact on Western thought, culture, and societal norms for centuries. Its foundational belief in the doctrine of original sin, which teaches that humanity inherited a sinful nature due to the transgressions of the first humans, has far-reaching implications, as it sets the tone for how individuals view themselves and their place within nature itself.

The doctrine of original sin introduces the idea that humans are born with an innate flaw, a spiritual blemish that they did not actively acquire but rather inherited. This concept diverges from the pagan religious and philosophical traditions that often view children as symbols of the perfection of nature and the universe. In the Christian worldview, the stain of original sin necessitates redemption, a return to grace, which is often achieved through faith, sacraments, and adherence to specific moral codes dictated by the ruling institution.

This perspective on human nature leads to a system that values conformity. If all are born in sin and need to be redeemed, then the path to redemption, as outlined by the institution, becomes the standard against which all should be measured. Such a system will prioritize collective adherence over individual freedom.

Throughout history, those who failed to follow the Christian collective have paid a heavy price. The Christian institutions have exhibited a brutal intolerance towards those who resisted their control. The medieval era bore witness to the savagery of the Inquisition, a grim chapter where suspected heretics were subjected to torture, often culminating in public burnings. The infamous witch trials, predominantly targeting women, were a grotesque spectacle, with countless innocent souls condemned to the gallows or pyres based on claims of witchcraft. Many were incarcerated in horrific conditions for the mere suspicion of heterodox beliefs. Executions became the order of the day, stark demonstrations of the Church's might and its relentless quest to quash any form of dissent. This relentless campaign was continued until the Church lost the political ability to do so, largely by a return to interest in pre-Christian pagan, or "classical" beliefs.

The emphasis on conformity over individuality has always had broader societal implications than just religion. It reaches into and creates institutions in every facet of social life. When conformity becomes the highest virtue, there's a systematic sidelining of creativity, innovation, and individual expression. All of these things require an environment of freedom.

Organic Paganism

Pagan societies, by contrast, were formed organically and were deeply rooted in the unique histories, geographies, and cultures of individual communities. These societies were not forcibly molded by an institutional belief system but evolved naturally, with religious and cultural practices that reflected the community's relationship with its natural environment.

Pagan beliefs were inherently decentralized. Every forest, river, mountain, or grove would have its own deity or spirit, and every community its unique rituals and festivals. All of these where seen as being connected under the surface, as being a unique cultural expression of the same universal truth.

In pagan societies, the land wasn't just a backdrop; it was an active participant in the cultural and spiritual narratives. The changing seasons, the patterns of the stars, the migrations of animals—all were deeply interwoven into the fabric of their myths, rituals, and daily lives. This intimate relationship with nature fostered a sense of reverence for the environment and the divine which is in all things.

The absence of an overarching religious institution in pagan cultures meant that the evolution of beliefs and practices was a communal endeavor. It was not uncommon for neighboring villages to have slightly different versions of the same myth, or for a festival to be celebrated with unique local variations. This fluidity allowed for a constant process of adaptation and reinvention, ensuring that the spiritual practices remained relevant to the changing needs and challenges of the community. Instead of a distant, literal, singular deity, the pagan pantheon was vast and varied, with gods and goddesses representing various natural phenomena, human emotions, and natural events.

Pagan societies, with their organic culture and connection to the environment, are completely different than institutional religious systems. Belief in the pagan world is not about confessing a creed, but about trying to understand our deepest selves, and the reality all around us. Like language itself, this can be expressed in an almost unlimited amount of ways, while still expressing the same ultimate truth.

Paganism and the Natural World

Pagan religions were fundamentally different from Abrahamic faiths in that they did not rely on belief in an outside, literal "person", but instead found divinity in the tangible, physical world. Rivers, mountains, animals, and celestial bodies like the Sun and Moon were not merely creations of the gods but were seen as divine in their own right. In the pagan view, their is no separation between the natural world and the spiritual world. This worldview engendered a kind of spirituality that was intimately connected with the natural environment and by extension, the inner world of the mind.

At the heart of pagan tradition lies the belief that the universe is imbued with a sacred essence. This isn't an abstract concept but a lived experience. This is truth. To the pagan mind, the rustling of leaves, the flow of rivers, the dance of flames, and the whisper of winds aren't just natural phenomena—they are the very expressions of the divine. The physical world is not a mere backdrop, it is the expression of the metaphysical.

Mountains, seen as ancient and eternal, were revered not just as magnificent landforms but as abodes of gods or spirits. Rivers, with their life-giving waters, were not just geographical features but were personified and venerated as goddesses. Animals, too, held a special place in the pagan worldview. They were not just mindless "animals" but intelligent fellow inhabitants of the earth, and were seen as messengers, guides, and manifestations of deities. The Sun, giver of light and life, and the Moon, ruler of the night and the tides, were not mere celestial bodies but potent symbols of the divine interplay of masculine and feminine energies.

This tangible spirituality fostered a deep sense of interconnectedness. By seeing the divine in nature, pagans inherently recognized the sanctity of the environment and themselves. It was a profound understanding that is the realization of eternal truth. Rituals, festivals, and daily practices revolved around the cycles of nature, from the changing seasons to the phases of the moon, reinforcing this bond with the natural world.

By understanding and respecting the world outside, pagans were also delving into the inner worlds of their psyche. The external and the internal were not separate realms but reflections of each other. Emotions, dreams, and personal experiences were all seen as significant, offering insights into the greater mysteries of existence.

In essence, pagan spirituality was a deeply in-tuned approach to life and the natural world. It saw beyond illusionary lines between the sacred and the mundane, the external and the internal, the physical and the spiritual. It reminded its adherents that divinity is not an external, distant concept but is the very fabric of our existence. In celebrating the world around them, pagans were also celebrating the divine within themselves.

The Role of Institutions

Institutional structures, having taken shape under the shadow of Christianity, present a stark contrast to the organic, community-driven frameworks that once prevailed. These modern institutions, be they religious, educational, or governmental, operate on the principle of maintaining control and suppressing freedom, for the ultimate purpose of their own continuation and growth.

Prior to Christianity, pagan societies thrived on organic systems that valued individual contributions and celebrated heroism. However, as Christianity expanded its influence, it brought with it a worship of weakness. This ideal of weakness and conformity allowed institutions to take over every facet of human social life.

At the heart of this institutional approach is the idea of a monolithic unity achieved by silencing dissenting opinions and marginalizing those who dare to think or live differently. The unity that these institutions tout is a coerced unity, where deviation from the norm is not just discouraged but is actively penalized. This is the unity of Orwell's 1984. This is the unity of communist and fascist dictatorships.

The institution can never accept the entire being of any person. It must only allow the aspects of any person which benefit the institution. This creates an inherent selectivity, one that meticulously cherry-picks the facets of an individual that align with its agenda. The institution, in its quest for self-preservation and dominion, operates much like a sieve, filtering out the unique complexities of a person's being, retaining only what serves its purposes. This means that those aspects of an individual's personality, beliefs, or behaviors that don't fit neatly into the institution's framework or threaten its stability are suppressed or outright rejected. In doing so, the institution ensures its continued relevance and dominance, at the expense of the individual. The end result is a populace that, while seemingly aligned with the institution's values, often feels fragmented, unable to express or even recognize their true selves fully. This mechanism perpetuates a cycle where individuals continuously mold and contort themselves to fit into a predefined mold, sacrificing their authentic selves in the process. This is why so many in modernity feel completely divorced from their own lives.

When institutions prioritize maintaining the status quo over fostering innovation, they hinder the very evolution of society. Breakthroughs, be they in science, art, or philosophy, often come from those who dare to think differently, who challenge established doctrine, and who embrace their unique perspectives. These are the rebels, those who embrace the ideal of Lucifer. These are those who find empowerment in the face of institutionalization.

Institutions continue their own growth and existence at the cost of individual empowerment and societal progress. A truly thriving society is one that contains organic unity and the celebration of individuality.


Over time, the influence of Christianity has led to the widespread institutionalization of society. Organic community and pagan traditions have been replaced by rigid, impersonal, artificial replicas. This institutionalization strips communities of their cultural richness and individuals of their unique potentials, leading to a society that is less free, that is built on weakness and conformity.

The shift towards institutionalization has been somewhat gradual but pervasive. As centralized institutions gained prominence, they began to dictate the structures of daily life. From education and healthcare to governance and cultural practices, the organic community was increasingly sidelined in favor of fake substitutes. These models can't fulfil the same supportive role, leading to a weaker populace and a high prevalence of dissatisfaction, anxiety, and social ills.

One of the most significant casualties of this shift has been cultural richness. Traditional practices, local customs, and indigenous knowledge systems, once passed down through generations, have been marginalized or lost altogether. Self-sufficiency as all but vanished, along with basic life-skills. In their place, a more homogenized, bland culture has been promoted. This not only erodes the unique identities of individual communities but also leaves most people feeling devoid of any real culture at all.

Additionally, institutionalization has a depersonalizing effect. Individuals are no longer seen as unique beings with distinct potentials but as cogs in a larger machine, or as simple stereotypes, or memes. When people are conditioned to fit into predefined molds, they are less likely to explore their passions, challenge established norms, or pursue unconventional paths. They are less challenging to the institution, but in return, they feel like connected to their own lives.

The Organic Ideal

This is not to say that organizations can not exist in an organic society. Not at all. We can still have companies, brands, business, markets, and all the rest. That is to say, that these things take on a dramatic shift in nature in an organic society. In a genuinely organic society, organizations exist not as obstacles, not as artificial institutions, but as facilitators of whatever purpose they are meant to have. This is enabled because of the strength of the individuals and the existence of organic community, which acts as a counterbalance to the trend of institutionalization. Such groups would provide the resources, opportunities, and freedoms necessary for individuals to explore and realize their unique potential. Rather than imposing a rigid framework of beliefs and behaviors, they would offer a flexible, structure within which individuals and communities can interact with each other for mutual benefit.

In organic society, groups are not made to overshadow individual aspirations but rather serve the purpose for which they are created. The fundamental shift lies in the perspective of what an institution's role should be: not controllers or regulators, but enablers and supporters. In an organic society, the group would recognize that each individual has a unique path to tread, filled with aspiration and potential. These groups would not act as if they have a life of their own, but rather focus on providing the necessary tools, resources, and environments conducive for whatever is needed. In the organic ideal, there is much more than the marketplace to life. People feel connected to their communities, invested in their work, and empowered in their paths. Freedom is the bedrock of self-realization. In organic society, the cause of individual freedom is championed.

The Power of Self-Knowledge


Humans have evolved the capacity for abstract thought. This allows us to picture concepts such as "self", and "death". Without this capacity, however, we are no less aware. When walking down a path, we can think about walking, or we can just walk. Thinking about walking is the abstract ability, walking is the direct ability. While our capacity for abstract thought is not directly necessary for survival, it is a natural part of the human animal. When we speak here of both awareness and action. Both walking and thinking about walking are a form of action and awareness. The awareness of one's actions, feelings, and immediate experiences represent direct consciousness. The contemplation about one destiny, the nature of the self, and existential questions arise from our abstract capabilities. Both are equally natural and a product of the divine universe's evolution. Self-awareness, in essence, contains both the act of walking and the act of thinking about walking. Each is a form of action rooted in the present moment, and in the vast landscapes of our infinite minds. We are both the metaphysical and the physical. Together, they paint the holistic picture of the human experience, a marriage between the tangible and the intangible.

At its core self-awareness represents a deep, unerring understanding of one's essence, desires, strengths, weaknesses, and motivations. It's a compass that directs us towards our authentic selves, stripping away the conditioning from institutions we often don to navigate modernity. This profound realization of self not only ignites the fire of personal empowerment but also acts as a catalyst, driving us to break free from limiting beliefs and societal constraints.

The Empowered Self, borne from the crucible of self-awareness, stands as a testament to human potential. It is a state of being where individuals, fully in tune with their intrinsic nature, are unshackled from external influences. They not only become the masters of their fate, charting their path with clarity and conviction, but also illuminate the way for others. Their empowerment becomes a beacon, like Lucifer, drawing others towards the path of self-realization.

In a broader societal context, the implications of widespread self-knowledge are profound. When individuals operate from a place of deep understanding and authenticity, they infuse society with real culture, action, and resilience. Such individuals embody heroism; they become the subject of myth and legend, pushing boundaries and challenging stagnant ideas, and reaching new heights which can inspire others for generations.

Grounded in Reality

The vision we present isn't a fleeting daydream or a whimsical utopia, disconnected from the real human experience. It's a tangible, grounded proposal, crafted to resonate with the very essence of humanity. This blueprint, deeply rooted in the perennial principles of individual liberty, strength, and naturalism, offers a fresh but timeless perspective on how societies can and should evolve.

At the heart of this vision lies the Empowered Self, a beacon of individual agency, intrinsic worth, and personal power. By placing this empowered entity as the cornerstone of society, we're not merely suggesting an alternative to modern culture; we're championing a paradigm shift. It's a shift from rigid, artificial systems to organic, adaptive environments that recognize and honor the innate value of every individual.

This ideal is simply our living reality, seen as it is. When we speak of this ideal, we refer to the unfiltered, undistorted essence of life as it manifests around and within us. This is the natural world, our home. This is our true selves. This is eternal truth. This is being grounded in reality. Being grounded in this reality means embracing this simplicity, this truth. It entails recognizing the inherent beauty and wisdom in the world as it is. It's about finding solace in the immutable, the eternal, and letting it anchor us and empower us. This is the reality that is, regardless of if we see it or not. When remember this reality, we're celebrating the profound connection and inner harmony that is universal eternal truth.

Charting the Course

The roadmap leading us to a more empowered future is intricately woven from the dedicated endeavors of individuals who have tapped into the reservoir of their inner strength and potential. This awakening, this profound realization of self-worth and capability, isn't confined to the introspective journeys of isolated individuals. Instead, it is available to any who would seek it, with their distinct insights, experiences, and aspirations.

Embarking on this transformative journey, each step taken, each challenge overcome, and each success celebrated adds a stone to the path. In the individual spirit, we each possess the power to gradually dismantle the confining walls and restrictive society that have been imposed by a culture of conformity.

With our actions, we lay the foundations for a society once again that is truly organic. Organic society values and nurtures the individual spirit, recognizing that strength and resilience are magnified as on is empowered to contribute their ambition. It is up to the individual to chart the course. It is up to the individual to rebel when needed, to grow, to learn, to shape and build as desired.

Finding The Empowered Self

Within the realm of the Empowered Self lies a treasure trove of potential; a reservoir of strength, wisdom, and inner peace. There is no limit to the wellspring of inner strength, as it springs from an eternal source. The empowered state of being serves as the touchstone for individual contentment. When individuals awaken to their inherent potential and embrace this empowerment, they discover the secret to their own happiness.

The power of self-knowledge isn't a transient phase or a fleeting realization. It is both the path we tread and the horizon we aim for, a journey of introspection, growth, and enlightenment. As individuals embark on this quest for empowerment, they find their own power at the same time.

Opportunity can be found anywhere. We create our own happiness. We have the power to shape and build our lives however we see fit.

Empowerment in The World

In the midst of modernity, with its dizzying array of challenges and distractions, it becomes all too easy to lose our way. Yet, within this intricate maze lies an enduring beacon: the illumination of empowerment. As we journey through life, grappling with its myriad experiences, it is essential to remember that true enlightenment and growth stem from realizing our own power. To truly understand oneself is to unlock the mysteries of the universe. This isn't just a poetic sentiment, but a profound truth. Our inner world, teeming with emotions, thoughts, and aspirations, mirror the vast expanse of the cosmos. Every revelation about our nature, every moment of self-awareness, brings us closer to deciphering the grand cosmic narrative, which is our own being. This journey inward doesn't isolate us; rather, it connects us more deeply to the world around us. In the dance of atoms and galaxies, we find the rhythm of our own heartbeats. Individual empowerment is all we need, but it also has far-reaching ramifications. When we empower ourselves, when we break free from the chains of self-doubt and fear, we set in motion a transformative wave that resonates through society. Every act of self-liberation inspires another, creating a cascading effect of empowerment that can reshape the very fabric of our communities. It is in the union of the Self and the Universe, which is always true, that we find hope, purpose, and power.
