I added a few links to the resources page today. I’m trying really hard to continually update it as I find interesting articles, resources and other information. Here is what was added:
* ChaosMatrix.org – A ridiculously complete collection of spells, theory , and other information related to Chaos.
* Kaos Magick Journal – Volume 1 No. 2 – An awesome piece on Chaos.
* Kaos Magick Journal – Volume 2 No. 1 – Yet another awesome piece on Chaos.
ChaosMatrix.org has tons of interesting and useful stuff on it, and it also has some of the lighter side of Chaos Magic. So many people seem to take themselves too seriously, which cracks me up because it seems a bit contrary to the nature of understanding Chaos. If nothing is true, then why sweat so much over it?
The second set of links are to a newsletter I found while googling random topics about Chaos. They have really interesting articles, some about practices, some about more IOT related topics, but they are a fun read. One of the nice parts about Chaos is I don’t have to care about the personal interjections and beliefs if I don’t want to. A lot of Chaotes head down a totally different path than I have taken, which is fine, I just really don’t want to head that way. I’ve never been one to believe in a god, let alone a whole pantheon of them. My “fake it till you make it “ techniques are designed around Peter Carrollës information which allows for the free-form use of energies, or even god-forms of our own creation.
“…there is always a perfectly adequate amount of sex, violence, love, intellectual brilliance, death, and everything else going on in the world at any time for the magician to establish etheric resonance with, if one wishes to work in a more free-form manner. “
“Thus Chaoism proclaims the death and re∑ birth of the gods. Our subconscious creativity and parapsychological powers are more than adequate to create or destroy any god or self or demon or other spiritual entity that we may choose to invest or disinvest belief in, at least for ourselves and sometimes others as well. “
So many Chaotes flit about acting like dark pagans rather than the arbiters of reality that they really are. Am I one of the few that is actually spending the time to really learn this stuff? I have had a few conversations with people online that initially claimed to be well-practiced Chaotes, but when I tried to discuss some of the deeper questions I had, they admitted to only having done sigils in their practice. Not that there is anything wrong with a sigil, I happen to think they are an awesome tool to have in our arsenal, but they are not the whole of Chaos Magic.
But, I digress. Enjoy the resources that I have updated on the page, but remember this: Take everything with a grain of salt, even the crap that I post. Make every decision for yourself and you’ll be a better off in all the areas of your life.
