If y'all remember my impulsive decision to post that post in Blog-Sthoth, you may also recall me mentioning how I believe void meditation and the Dreamlands go hand in hand. I would like to clear up why this is my belief, as well as briefly discussing my views on Pantheism.
For one, I consider myself a Pantheist, however I also believe in the Gods we follow as a group. These archetypes that HP Lovecraft "created" are eerily similar to other religious archetypes we follow to this day in right-path religions. I believe that there is little difference between a Pantheist and a Deist, as the main difference between the two is the belief in one singular all powerful god. In The Cult, it's often we consider Azathoth as this being, however I believe in the concept that we are all fragments of Azathoth himself.
Now, to my main point...
When one Void Meditates, one gains access to a higher plane than that of which we can comprehend. Buddhist monks are able to access this state in a few seconds as they have practiced the art of Meditation. Personally, I believe Void Meditation is a way to speed up the process of proper meditation.
With this in mind, let's consider what this higher plane is. I personally view this higher plane as the Astral Plane, or rather, The Dreamlands as HP Lovecraft would call it. Avid lucid dreamers are put into the Dreamlands against their will, and people dedicated to the art of Meditation know what I mean when I say you can access this plane through Meditation. What we are really touching is the Astral Plane. In a sense we are astral projecting to this higher dimension where the creatures of the Mythos dwell.
I now open the floor to you fellow Cultists. Please leave feedback on your views in regards to this topic. I know there were people who were confused about how I connected Pantheism with Void Meditation, and I hope this forum post clears some concepts up that I neglected to include. I will explain any questions even further if there is confusion in regards to my beliefs. I look forward to discussing this concept. La la, Cthulhu Fhtagn
