“Satanism has been thought of as being synonymous with cruelty and brutality. This is so only because people are afraid to face the truth—and the truth is that human beings are not all benign or all loving. Just because the Satanist admits he is capable of both love and hate, he is considered hateful. On the contrary, because he is able to give vent to his hatred through ritualized expression, he is far more capable of love—the deepest kind of love”
— Anton LaVey, Satanic Bible (via thesatanicblog)
In Hinduism, Akasha was the first material element created from the astral world before Air, Fire, Water, and Earth.
