Hello fellow Cultists, You have all shown incredible patience in waiting for the publication of The Bible, and as such I thought it fitting to share a sneak peak of the first couple pages with you. Remember always that Cthulhu has slumbered as empires rise and fall and Azathoth has dreamed since the beginning of all things. As another Cultist so aptly put it; in this age of instant gratification it is hard to be patient. Remain with the Void, fellow Cultists, as sure as the sun sets; Cthulhu will rise. ______________________________________________________
Forget what you know.
The world is a very different place to what you have come to see it as, as is your role within it.
But you already knew that.
You knew that there was more to it all.
And you knew that you were meant for more; to be more.
You have heard The Call.
All seekers of knowledge and power come to The Cult, sooner or later, but to become a Cultist you will to have to be prepared to push your boundaries.
You will need to question your established belief system, your perceived reality and your very sense of self in order to begin to use your power to bend the world to your will and make changes in your life through the continuance of The Work.
If you are ready to let go of everything you think you know about reality and Ascend then maybe you are ready to join The Cult of Cthulhu.
If not then perhaps a different path is better suited for you.
Ascension takes real work and serious work on oneself. It is not a path for everyone.
If you are not ready to take the necessary steps then close this book now, forget what you have seen and continue living the life you have lived up until this moment.
But if you are ready to change your life forever, then read on…
By the time you have finished this book you will understand, and perhaps be ready to join, The Cult of Cthulhu.
There are a few reasons for the publication of this Bible.
For one, the title ‘The Cult of Cthulhu’ has been perverted for too long: stolen by scattered grottos with no semblance of unification or structure and led by fools, liars and the uninitiated, without any purposeful belief structure or centralized tome of wisdom.
For another, humanity has finally matured enough to understand it’s contents and recognize the Truth therein. The stars, as it were, are right.
For far too long those who have heard The Call and avoided the false bearers of our name have had nowhere to turn, escaping instead into the recesses of their own minds or worse, shunning and repressing The Call entirely, never to reach the full potential that they promise. This Bible is the port in the storm for those that hear The Call from the deep. Make no mistake; those that have come before you and have read the words in this tome have found and joined the true Cult of Cthulhu.
There exist no organized religions that use the Lovecraftian archetypes and ideals to celebrate life over divinity and death other than this Cult.
The closest parallels were introduced in 1996 by Anton LaVey with Satanism and in 1976 by Peter J. Carroll and Ray Sherwin, with Chaos Magick. Satanism did so only in that it celebrated primal life over the fear of death and of God, Chaos Magick in that it allowed its practitioners to believe in the Old Ones (as well as literally anything else) for the respective moment that his or her ritual is performed. While close parallels, neither are true ‘Cthulhuism’ in any sense of understanding or practice. The Cult of Cthulhu has it’s own entirely unique practices, beliefs, dates and rituals that have been practiced for innumerable years.
There, too, exists no triumphant banner for those with agnostic or atheistic views who still yearn for the brotherhood, ritual, dogma and iconography that comes with organized religion, without entertaining the lies that they all profess.
Those who have stood in authentic timeworn places of worship and attended services of the right path gods know of the warm light of vivid stained windows that bask the place, of the distinct aromas of incense that wrap and curl on the air and of the flawless mystery and sense of wonder that accompanies it all. It is a veritable buffet for the senses. The camaraderie and support of the attendees of these services, though often falsified for the moment in attempt of acquisition of favor of their lord, is a simple pleasure of human brotherhood that is oft denied to non-believers.
Traditional religion has served its use but that time is gone. In this age of science and enlightenment these religions are no longer needed. Humans will always strive for unification and brotherhood, so religion in that sense will perhaps always have its place. One of the goals of The Cult is to give a religion to the non-religious and in the process to perhaps change what ‘religion’ means altogether.
The Cult of Cthulhu is a belief system for the elite insomuch as it is for those unshackled by the stigma of past religions, those that move forward with fact and reason, those that hear The Call from the deep and so celebrate primal, fundamental life over falsified divinity and fear of death and judgement, those that reside in the Void and recognize the insignificance of their lives in the stupefying cosmos and rejoice in it all.
While this is by far the largest body of work ever developed on the true Cult of Cthulhu and it’s beliefs, there are many more aspects to The Cult, far more than a simple prologue could ever hope to cover, that exist within the Cult. From vivid iconography and sacred dates to blackened unholy rituals to Awaken and attain Ascension; by the end of this Bible you will understand the fundamentals and be ready to join the genuine Cult of Cthulhu. None of our tools can be mastered in a single day but as you progress through this book you will see that there are benefits to be gained from each and every step.
Congratulations for following The Call, Welcome home,
- Your faithful brother in cosmic blackness,
