Embracing the psychological power of Satan and its relevance with humanity
Our understanding of metaethics dates back to the medieval ages when we witnessed the existence of two contradicting forces. These forces are powerful enough to turn the fate of humanity for better or worse.
We believe in good deeds and intentions about being a human and living in a well-civilized society. However, we never tried to understand the implications of our beliefs upon our lives.
In other words, we have been ignorant all this time towards the ‘effects of evil’ and how it has been dwelling in our minds and hearts, silently waiting for the right opportunity when we turn against the ‘good’ in us.
But, “Why would we want to turn against the ‘good’ in us and embrace ‘evil’ or Satan?”
Well, the reason is that our ‘Satan’ is not as powerless as it seems. In other words, it has more to it than meets the eye. Therefore, it wouldn’t be wrong to say that Satan is devious and manipulative. Moreover, it has been trying to fool us with its insignificance to prevent us from embracing it.
But then, “How does his insignificance help him take over an individual or society?”
That is what we are going to discuss here to understand its goal concerning humanity.
The limits of the psychological power of Satan (pure evil):
Yes, it is true.
People worship Satan to identify themselves with his strengths and abilities. Most importantly, they believe in his existence and that every evil force present in the world is a manifestation of his powers, which we somehow deem insignificant.
So, “what is Satanism?”
It is the worship of Satan, typically involving a travesty of Christian symbols and practices such as placing a cross upside down.
The above definition says about the way it contradicts our belief in God and the practices linked with it. Hence, it is evident that if God exists, then Satan does too, which means we cannot deny his existence.
But then, “Why does Satan want us to underestimate him or trust his insignificance?”
Well, that is his ‘master plan’. He wants us to underestimate him so he can silently get in our heads through our desires and ambitions. Similarly, our belief in good alone will be responsible for our descent to evil. This is something we would have never imagined in our wildest dreams.
In other words, the power of Satan lies in our psychology and perception. Besides, the more dogmatic we are towards our understanding of good and evil, the more vulnerable we are to the power of evil.
However, his plan to take over us by deception is failing as people have started to embrace his existence. As a result, they have come to terms with his unsurprisingly seductive powers.
To clarify, our belief in ‘pure evil’ (BPE) is the ultimate result of our acceptance of the evil that exists inside us.
Hence, the traits of Narcissism, Machiavellianism, and Psychopathy are nothing but the manifestation of his powers. Besides, these depend upon a purpose or a goal, which is the exact opposite of that of good.
The psychology behind ‘satanic powers’ and ‘sorcery’:
It may not seem obvious but satanic powers are closely related to sorcery and black magic.
The rise in the occult of dark arts and tantric practices shows the tendency of society to be attracted to satanic powers and their desire to use it according to their will.
But, “Why do people engage in dark arts and sorcery, and what does it provide them in return?”
It is something we discussed for years, and many religions have different reasons for it. However, at present, the psychology behind it is that people who feel neglected and powerless in their lives are likely to engage in these evil practices.
Moreover, they are disturbed by the cynicism that exists in the world. Consequently, with the feelings of powerlessness, they engage in practices such as black magic to gain power or strength by worshipping Satan himself.
Through sorcery and black magic, one is convinced of Satan’s existence and embraces his powers to gain control over the things he cannot control. As a result, this occult has been preached for several years by sorcerers.
Hence, the theory of Satan’s powerlessness is debunked as sorcerers are aware of the potential of satanic powers.
Most importantly, these practices started in India and Africa, and they spread to the rest of the world in recent years. As a result, it has led to widespread acceptance of tantric practices and its significance.
The question is, “Why are people suddenly embracing the satanic powers through sorcery?”
It is due to the radical changes in society concerning political and religious matters. Besides, the revolution in terms of ideas and beliefs affected many people to a degree where they couldn’t resonate with either section of the society.
To sum up, the psychological power of Satan is underestimated due to our limited knowledge of evil. Moreover, our polarizing views have led us to believe that humans are good, and evil doesn’t possess any kind of power.
However, our limited thinking is responsible for our naivety and ignorance towards the ’pure evil’ or Satan. As a result, we have been misled by him to believe in our moral compass, which is too rigid to consider the effects of evil forces.
Therefore, it is time to forsake our dogmatic approach towards good and evil and embrace the reality of the psychological powers of Satan to make ourselves stoic and responsible against pure evil.
