CULTIST

Lesson VI

What is the Cult?

The Cult of Cthulhu is a belief-system.

It is based upon the archetypes, ideals and manifestations of The Cthulhu Mythos created by H.P Lovecraft. 

It is an undeviating and viable way for one to reconnect with their naturally existential powers and abilities and to use them to change their lives.

It is first and foremost a quest of self-discovery and -perfection.


The Cult of Cthulhu is comprised of three major facets which as a whole address the very nature of life, the cosmos and (most importantly) the self. 

Collectively, they are known as The Work:

The Call

This is the premiss that only a select few are even worthy of The Cult and its teachings.

Those who are worthy have heard The Call in one way or another, which beckons each Cultist to become the entity they were always destined to be.

The Call can manifest in any number of ways. Some people have a dream so intense and beckoning that they feel compelled to research Cthulhu further. Some notice too many coincidences in their own life to ignore the fact that they are drawn to Cthulhu any longer. For some it is simple a state of being...

The Called often feel misunderstood.

They feel other people don’t see the world the way they do, that they are different from everybody else.
 

They crave not only deeper meaning but deeper understanding too.

To be part of something larger than oneself and to attain a higher sense of self. 
To become the perfect version of themselves based on their own criteria.


They are drawn to the idea of transformation where others around them seem satisfied  with the mundane.
 

They sense they are meant to be a part of the elite few that transcend this mundanity and see through the Illusion everyone else is sated with.

They know that they are meant to be larger than life, to attain a state of being no one else can achieve and to rise above the current perceived reality.

 

Those that identify with this passage are worthy in the eyes of Cthulhu and The Cult and have been Called.

The Work

ASCENSION

Ascension is the premiss that within us all is an Elder God waiting to be Awoken, and that through the practices of The Cults teachings one can achieve perfection of the self in all forms; body, mind and spirit. 

 

In the multiverse there is a perfect version of you that already exists, Ascension is the means to attaining it in this reality too. 

Ascension usually begins with admitting a desire for self-perfection (of no one else's criteria but your own)

Christianity has expertly hammered this desire out of most people from an early age in order to benefit its own ends, but it is human instinct to want to become the alpha, to imagine and desire themselves as the most perfect version of themselves possible and, if willing and disciplined enough, to seek out the means to achieve it.

 

Ascension is the means.

Power, self-creation, self-perfection, intensification of will and purpose, apotheosis

this is all gained through Ascension.

UNIFICATION

Unification is the premiss that without unity (of the inner and the outer) true Ascension can never truly be achieved. It is the attainment of oneness and brotherhood throughout every aspect of life. 

 

Without Unification, The Cult Of Cthulhu falls to obscurity, as it has done in decades passed.

Followers of the Cult must strive to ever unify with one another; it was the barbarians banding together that finally brought upon the fall of ignominious Rome. 


A real family, banded together by bonds of cosmic light and darkness, transcending the reality put in front of us, that is The Cult Of Cthulhu.

We wear the symbol of Cthulhu proudly emblazoned on our chests like the knights of old, and scream our name as we charge into battle.

The Cult Of Cthulhu has arisen once again.

The Cult holds that Man is insignificant and tiny to the cosmos-at-large, which is where our true joy and zeal for life stems from.

 

It is in recognising our own insignificance that we can truly appreciate and live life to the fullest, with no fear of damnation or reward - except for those damnations and rewards that we dish out to ourselves and to each other.

Cthulhu's is not a religion of rigid dogma but of true freedom and utter wildness of spirit
