When you grow up in a certain religion, you are probably taught that religion is the Truth. Some people don’t even question that authority, and happily go around preaching that Truth, continuing the cycle.
As you probably know by now, I grew up a very devout Catholic. I wanted to be a nun at one point. I remember how happy I was when I got confirmed. I knew I would evangelize everyone, bringing them to the Church…
That is, until I met Melektoth. We met in 2009, and at the time, he himself was preparing to be confirmed. I was his sponsor, and I thought we would be the perfect Catholic couple.
Boy was I ever wrong. Melektoth didn’t grow up like I did, in a strict religious home. He was much more exposed to other ways of thinking. I, on the other hand, was very sheltered. Melektoth would always tell me of his experiences from other religions. All he wanted to do was seek the Truth.
Eventually, he left the Church because as I said, he was obsessed with finding the one and only Truth. Because I am curious by nature, I realized all his arguments against religion made a terrifying kind of sense.
The journey I have been on with him has been crazy, and I have had many ups and downs. In this crazy journey, I have realized that there are many levels of Truth.
There are those people who will blindly follow their religion, not questioning anything but accepting everything. There are also those who do question, but don’t really do much about it. And finally, there are those brave enough to actually question everything they believe in and hold dear. If you are truly seeking, you will find it.
The Truth isn’t in one religion: it’s much deeper than that. The Truth is inside yourself, and you find it with your own gnosis. Personally, I think black magick is a huge part of the Truth. I think it can lead us to our Truths because it allows us to discover them through our gnosis and experience.
If you are ready to truly drop everything and seek your truth, I highly encourage you to sign up for our Circle of Darkness newsletter. It will be delivered directly to your door in hard copy. In it, you will have the tools to begin your journey of Truth. If this is something you want for yourself, just go to returningtozero.org/circle.
Your Truth will indeed set you free if you have the courage to embark on this sacred journey. May you find your Truth through gnosis.
