9 Reasons Letting Go of Resentment Will Make You a More Evil Person

Are you carrying around too much resentment? Believe it or not, you may be hurting yourself in the process. You can take this resentment test to see if you are.

I would never tell you that you have to forgive, much less forget. But you may be causing yourself undue harm and even letting yourself be unduly influenced by all of the resentment in your life. Here are 9 intelligent reasons that it’s importnt to let go of your resentful emotions–even if you never stop planning your revenge.

1. Resentment is an addictive state of mind, and intelligent, capable, evil people are not addicts.

Except maybe power addicts. But even a healthy power addiction can be dangerous, and should be moderated.

When you let it become a compulsion instead of an indulgence, resentment becomes a disease of the Will. If you let your Will get and stay diseased, you become just another mindless drone in today’s techno-

2. Resentment keeps you living in your past instead of building your powerful future.

The past is not even real, unless you build a total environment to make it so. Your future is the is-to-be of your workings.

If you let go of resentment and put in plenty of effort into working smart for your future, you will one day be able to say with much satisfaction, “So It Is Done.” But people who hold on to resentment are really saying, “So it was done to me”–and they do it to themselves over and over and over again.

Don’t disempower yourself with resentment. Instead, become one of the few powerful people by taking responsibility for your future.

3. Holding on to resentment is a way of beating yourself up, by replaying the shitty things that were done to you, or negelectgin yourself, by replaying the times when the things that should have been done for you, werent.

4. Holding on to resentment actually gives the guilty party power over you–even when they are not around.

Need I say more?

5. Resentment will not let you control those have wronged you. But cool, passionless intelligence will.

As much as every budding Evil Genius may want to believe otherwise, nobody makes it to the top purely on their own efforts. Other people are required. And Lesser Magic works best when you maintain a calm, Evil Siddartha-like state with your emotions.

6. Resentment is bad for your physical health.

As every good Satanist recognizes, the mental, emotional, and “spiritual” aspects of humankind are really just different manifestations of physical, carnal reality. Holding onto resentment is actually very stressful. This kind of stress can cause premature again in the same way that taking care of a disabled loved one can cause stress on the caretaker.

Yogic meditation is but one remedy that will help you de-stress and let go of resentment. Throwing curses is another.

7. People use resetnment to gain the moral high ground.

In fact it is often used by professional victims and those who are what Harold Bloom calls “The school of resentiment.”

Maybe I do. Here are some examples:

8. Resentment keeps you from thinking clearly, realizing all of your options, and achieving your goals.

I probably don’t need to write a whole lot under some of these subheadings, do I?

9. Resentment is only fun when you have the power to get revenge.

Otherwise, it’s a miserable state. If you’re going to indulge in resentment, make sure that it is a healthy indulgence and not a compulsion! Do it from a position of power, both over the other person, and of power over your resentment.

One way to do this is to set boundaries on when you allow the resentment to have free reign. You may want to go into the ritual chamber or rent a hotel room for a weekend. You may want to start treating your resentment as a favored but well-disciplined pet.

The choices for handling resentment are pretty much unlimited for the creative sorcerer. Just be sure to turn it into an indulgence and not let it overwhelm you as a compulsion.

Truth Never Runs Away from You

Truth never runs away, it is always you who run away.

Your essential truth is not changed by point of view, it does not depend on the observer, it gives the same value whether you see it as a particle or a wave.

Your truth never wavers–even when your story does.

What is true about you is true, true, true regardless of the attitude of the observer.

 

Your truth will never run away from you. It is incapable of that. It is your choice to see it as an angel or as a demon–or perhaps as something else.

Your truth may or may not set you free. But it won’t kill you, either.

Not unless you force it to.

Sneaking Out at Night

The first time I snuck out
from Mama’s house
I wasn’t very smart
about
the way I did it

I was kinda dumb.

I stopped the window’s falling with my thumb.

then ripped my shirt
on branches on the tree
I barely shimmied down and
scraped my knee
from landing on the ground at too-high speed
and falling over
scraped my hands as well

then almost got run over
by a truck
when running ‘cross the road
to make the ditch
where I could hide
until you picked me up
to take me from
The Mansion of The Bitch.

I waited there until
the sky turned blue

then crossed the road
and cast a curse at you.

Where Were You on 9/11?

I saw the second tower fall and was like, “Damn I hope I don’t have AIDS.” Then I called in to work because it was right by the airport and it seemed like a good excuse.

News: Norbert “Stinky Two-Legs” Buskin Down for the Count

Ever wonder what happened to old Norbert “Stinky Two-Legs” Buskin from Walnut Street? Looks like he changed his name, moved to Florida, and tried to break into houses by busting out the window. Some of us always said that old Norb put the “breaking” into “breaking in”, and it looks like that was the end of him.

Here’s one of the more recent pictures from before his death. Those of you who knew him in Whisky should notice quite an improvement.

Two Days of Being Sick

I feel like I ate a whole box of Colon Blow.

 

And then ate some Cheerios soaked in reclaimed water.

 

And then got sick.

 

 

Damn.

 

 

 

 

 

 

I’m not kidding:

 

colon blow is no fucking joke

That is my coach.

Nothing to Report

How can there be nothing to report? It’s at this point when a human being must simply turn to everything written between 1890-1939.
