Warm Greetings to all!
Over the years I have read Anton LaVey's The Satanic Bible, The Satanic Rituals, The Satanic Witch, The Devil's Notebook, and Satan Speaks! Also, I did not hesitate in ordering my hardcover copy of Peter Gilmore's The Satanic Scriptures few years ago. Blanche Barton's The Secret Life of a Satanist was also very effective in providing me with a wealth of background knowledge on the life of Dr. LaVey and the CoS in general.
By applying "lesser" & "greater" magic and other CoS concepts such as the synthesizer clock, I have achieved many of my goals and have increased my overall happiness, wealth, and personal satisfaction. For these things I am eternally loyal and grateful to the CoS.
Until now I have mostly studied on my own and have been a sole practitioner. However, at this time the yearning to discover more has overcome me. In the same light, I hope to also be able to contribute back to this sterling community.
Thank you all for reading.
