Recently, I have been making some observations and research concerning “Left-Hand-Path Organizations.” It seems that today’s “Left-Hand Path” practitioners are no more than a bunch of new agers hooked on dark aesthetics. This can be easily seen when we define the true origin of the term left-hand path.
Although, it is believed that the term “Left-Hand Path” is something recently invented in the West, this is far from the truth. Evidence of this can be seen in the Christian Bible in Matthew Chapter 25, where it states:
“ 31When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory: ,, 32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats: 33And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left. .. 34Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: ..35For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: …36Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me. .. 37Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? .. 38When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? …39Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee? .. 40And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me. … 41Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels: … 42For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink: ..43I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not. …44Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee? …45Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me. …46And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.?
From the above Biblical passages we can actually see that many of the dark aesthetics concerning “satanic” thought is actually based on an inversion of Christian philosophy. The “sheep-like” individuals are desribed as working in unity and very hospitable. Whereas, the “goat-like” individuals are more individualistic, not easily led, and described as goats, which is later symbolized by the Baphomet. Although it seems that what is said in these Biblical passages is clear, the deeper understanding of what is meant here comes from first understanding the first part of the passage:
“32And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:”
The “shepard” that is referred to here is none other than Jacob, which takes us to an older parable concerning the sheep and the goats. In Genesis Chapter 30, Jacob is said to engage in a grafting process where in before departing from his father-in-law Laban, he is granted permission by him to take sheep and goats into his possession. Notice what is stated in the New International Version of Genesis Chapter 30:
“29 Jacob said to him, “You know how I have worked for you and how your livestock has fared under my care. 30 The little you had before I came has increased greatly, and the LORD has blessed you wherever I have been. But now, when may I do something for my own household?” …31 “What shall I give you?” he asked.
“Don’t give me anything,” Jacob replied. “But if you will do this one thing for me, I will go on tending your flocks and watching over them: 32 Let me go through all your flocks today and remove from them every speckled or spotted sheep, every dark-colored lamb and every spotted or speckled goat. They will be my wages. 33 And my honesty will testify for me in the future, whenever you check on the wages you have paid me. Any goat in my possession that is not speckled or spotted, or any lamb that is not dark-colored, will be considered stolen.” ..34 “Agreed,” said Laban. “Let it be as you have said.” 35 That same day he removed all the male goats that were streaked or spotted, and all the speckled or spotted female goats (all that had white on them) and all the dark-colored lambs, and he placed them in the care of his sons. 36 Then he put a three-day journey between himself and Jacob, while Jacob continued to tend the rest of Laban’s flocks. … 37 Jacob, however, took fresh-cut branches from poplar, almond and plane trees and made white stripes on them by peeling the bark and exposing the white inner wood of the branches. 38 Then he placed the peeled branches in all the watering troughs, so that they would be directly in front of the flocks when they came to drink. When the flocks were in heat and came to drink, 39 they mated in front of the branches. And they bore young that were streaked or speckled or spotted. 40 Jacob set apart the young of the flock by themselves, but made the rest face the streaked and dark-colored animals that belonged to Laban. Thus he made separate flocks for himself and did not put them with Laban’s animals. 41 Whenever the stronger females were in heat, Jacob would place the branches in the troughs in front of the animals so they would mate near the branches, 42 but if the animals were weak, he would not place them there. So the weak animals went to Laban and the strong ones to Jacob. 43 In this way the man grew exceedingly prosperous and came to own large flocks, and maidservants and menservants, and camels and donkeys.”
When we carefully compare what is written in the New Testament with the much older Genesis account, we can see that Jesus was not referring to a separation of the sheep and the goats, but the weaker from the stronger. We should first keep in mind that both Jacob and Jesus represent the Solar paths. Jesus had twelve apostles representing the Sun and the twelve signs of the Zodaic, as Jacob had 12 sons.
In the case of Jacob, he played the role of creating a new doctrine from what was old and also another type of man, one that was not mixed, or “spotted” with elements of Jinn heritage. For it states in the concluding verse the following: “In this way the man grew exceedingly prosperous..” Jesus assigns the “goats” to the Kingdom of the Jinn or “everlasting fire.” In any case we can see that “left-hand” is also associated with the “goat” in Christianity.
Another ancient pratice that has been deemed as Left-Hand Path, which stems from the East is Vamachara, or Left-Hand Path Tantra. The Left Hand Path denotes intelligence and free-thought..many people who are truly dedicated to the Left-Hand Path are beautiful people, then we have the Left-Hand Path scams.
People who walk on the Left Hand Path do not associate themselves with organization to learn Left-Hand Path work. In other words, the Dark initiate might be a member of an organization for their own personal reasons, but he/she knows that an organization has absolutely nothing to do with their growth and development along the Laft-Hand Path.. Left-Handers are individual in their approach and due because of such, the Teachings are passed down from one individual to the next,. Lineage is important. Many times, a “mentor” could be teaching two people, or more at the same time, and it is rare if the students will ever meet each other. It is not necessary, since it is about your individual growth and development.
Left-Handers will never rely on being limited in their expression of spirituality. The are many internet organizations that claim to be Left-Hand Path, and openly criticize others’ teaching, viewpoints, and etc. Yet a true Left-Hander knows that what may not be good for some is useful for others, and will remain in the shadows from those who boast about having all this power, but seek member. That is stupid. The reason they seek members is because the only power that they have is the power to sell you an image of what power is and by you joining their organization, they just sold you an idea. The Left-Hand Path is organization independent and any organization that is claiming to be the know all, be all is just a right-hand organization using left-hand aesthetics.
