Welcome reader, welcome to the following ramble. Let me play advocate for Nyarlathotep and ask you some questions. If the organised religions of the world are in battle for the control of an individual’s mind, heart and soul then where does the Cult stand? And should we stand? Would there be a point? And maybe it is not just organised religions in this battle, maybe it is also ‘lifestyle gurus’ and ‘advertising and commercialism’? Maybe it is ‘the pride of your parents’, ‘the respect of your friends’ or whichever cultural rules you find directing and shaping your life. With each Cultist on their individual ascension journey I wonder who else stops and looks at what is driving what they want? What really shapes your goals and are these thoughts really your own? I’m not sure we can hope to ascend as The Old Ones, if we haven’t deconstructed the roots of our desires. What do you think?
