Hmmmm, usually when I experience doubt about something, it's due to the fact that I'm working with insufficient information, so when I experience doubt, I seek out further information before I make a decision.

I assume that is what Lillan is doing here, and it seems to me a rational course of action.

If she's looking for simple reassurance, as Aracely suggests, then I agree with Aracely, in that this forum is not a place to seek reassurance from others.

Now...did anyone want any of these delicious double-shit brownies I baked?

I must admit, that I haven't read both books all the way through. I just got them a couple of days ago. And, yes, as you say chocolate "shit" is good!

No, doubt is healthy for the body. Doubt in excess is unhealthy to the mind.

Yup, all things in moderation.

You need enough doubt in order to know how to peek behind the curtain and see flaws, but you need enough hope and optimism to keep moving forward and to take important risks.

I have this proverb I like to say whenever I get into Monk mode.

I would think doubt is more healthy than not. If not for doubt, there would be no truth. Doubt is required for mental emancipation. That's why I doubt everything most people tell me, because most of the time, they are either trying to manipulate me, or they heard it from somebody else who made it up. There is very little useful knowledge on the verbal grapevine. Doubt everything that can not be proved. In science, it is false until proven a truth. Never doubt yourself though, that is unhealthy. Doubt of the self leads to depression. I trust myself and very few others. This may not be the way to live for others, but this is the way that has worked for me. By the way, Coop rules.

I like my monks to phrase it as follows:

I doubted for a short while. Then I realised that I was letting the opinions of others, whom only knew me from a few postings, to dictate to me. I took myself away re-read the Satanic Bible plus other works by Anton LaVey and other high ranking COS members. I re-examined my views, my life and my expectation for myself. It became crystal clear. I was born Satanic, I am a Satanist.

Looking back I made it harder for myself to be accepted by some. That was totally my fault not theirs. However some of those who questioned my Satanic self have turned out to be nothing more than pseudo satanist and have long since dissappeared from this forum. Others, whom I have great respect for, may still doubt. That is up to them.

I should probably be skinned alive for not remembering who I'm about to quote, but Somebody in the CoS has accurately pointed out that: "If there is any doubt, then there is no doubt." I'll admit that not every little thing goes my way whether I use lesser or greater magic, but that's hardly cause for doubt.

Well, this girl may just be wisely cautious. She's new to this and apparently reacted with self-recognition upon reading The Satanic Bible, so I'd say she is likely a Satanist.
