Choices. Decisions.

I have mentioned before in this place, my views on this topic. That there is always a choice, always a way to impose your will and desires on a situation. That true Ďno choice situationsí are actually incredibly rare, and even then, accepting that it was your own decisions, your own choices that led you to this point, is quite the skill.

To me, that freedom to choose, is important.

Often, the choices we make have unintended, unforeseen consequences, some which take a while to manifest themselves. Some decisions, in hindsight, will have been wrong, incorrect, or plain stupid, but at the time, for the moment, for the you then, the important thing is they were made. That you made them.

These past few weeks, I have come to learn that there is another aspect to all of this. That of looking back at those decisions, some big, some small, and understanding why you made the choice you made. That each decision cascaded into the others, slowly revealing bits of a larger picture, a larger journey. Myself, Iíve started to see where that journey has been leading me, and Iíve come to accept that I would not be at the position I am now, be the person I am now, without having gone through each and every one.

That it has brought me to the end of that journey. To this decision.

It has brought me right up to the edge of the cliff, to stare into the deep darkness beyond. I have not been dragged kicking and screaming here. I have not been pushed. I may have been shown the way, but It is my heart has lead me along it, right to the threshold. I stand here naked, exposed, all the masks and mirrors shattered and broken around me, my fire rekindled. Nothing to hide behind, nothing in the way.

My choices seem twofold: I can choose to bend down, pick up the pieces lying around me, and walk away. Or I can take that final step, over the edge, and allow the whispering blackness to envelop me, consume me.

But, there is a third choice...

Iíve said in the past, that in my view, the greatest freedom that someone can have, is to willingly surrender it to someone else, to something else. A single, ultimate choice. And that is the one I choose to take now...

I choose to give myself freely to the one who has opened my eyes to...everything. Shown me that there is this other path, the one I have always skirted; helping me to understand why I made the choices I made. To give myself to them and be remade, marked forever by their will, forever to be claimed as theirs. A choice from which there is no return, from which I do not know what will become of me, just that the prospect appeals on a very deep level...

I wish to formally request initiation into the order of the Sani Sabik, and I do so gladly.

I choose to leap from this cliff, Sovereign, and implore you to save me... make me into what I am meant to be.

'Nauseating' is the word you were looking for, honey. But its both somewhat rude, wouldn't you agree?

Nausea - congratulations are in order I suppose. Seems it was just a matter of time after Season 2's events.

Along the years I have initiated many Geniuses of mankind. Officers of the Faith populate every corner of the Empires and major alliances of this cluster.
Professional combat fighters, Bankers, Media stars, celebrities, Black Nobility and Aristocrats who share the same visions of Power and Might. We are one, sharing our vision of a One Universal Order where Power is Might and Might makes Right.
It's our Faith and therefore immortal. Faith is one of the most powerful forces in this Universe, under love and it's not by mere coincidence that we have now the most brilliant minds on this cluster under our banner.

Sani Sabik is a call to wealthness, power, determination and the call to fullfil your soul's desires. Capsuleers who won't set for mediocricy, for blending with the chaotic boredoom of the populace will reach the same cliff as you have.

Be the best star you are. Embrace the concept that there are those who are born to lead, and those existing to feed the needs of these geniuses of mankind.

What you ask is absolute. Those under my command and faith take it very seriously.
What I say goes above everything else. There is no questions , no debates, no contestations.

Under these terms, I'll initiate you into the Order.

I can't answer to this request without having my lover to kill you at first sight.
Let's just say that I have exclusive rights of salvation towards an anarchist soul who wouldn't take lightly if i decided to save anyone else.
This said...

I can't save you but you will save yourself through my guidance and the light of Sani Sabik knowledge, power, truth and absolute certainty of what you are in your soul.

May your journey begin with the blessings of your request being endorsed with Rodj Blake's first stamp.
That is indeed a good omen to you.

Are you talking about a true Sani Sabik community, Sarikusa's Blood Raider Covenant, or Revan's little Bloodveil Cult?

Because each of those are not very fond of each other, despite what you may be being told.

I will say congratulations but only with the warning that you submit to the archetype and not to the person. May it be so that the divine flows through her and serves to shape you in the way that you require. It is a wonderful language that can develop and one that should be to the astonishment of both. I wish you much success on your new path.

I must confess this is disheartening for me to see. I will spare you anger or hatred, pity or remorse for these are not the things you need.

I will simply tell you instead that I shall be seeking for the day when your path may at last lead you to the one true destination: God. Until that time, never stop seeking enlightenment and know that I would not turn you away should you ever have the desire to speak with me.

A wonderful opportunity to remind us of a few lines on the First Sani Sabik Bloodveil Sermon published for infidels and public perusal at- 2006.11.19 12:18:00

Bloodveil First public Sermon [ God is Dead]


Either God can exist or freedom, both cannot exist together.

This is the First premise of Bloodveil: God is dead, therefore man is free.

Yes, I hear the Amarrians screaming in fear: So, without God, what are we to be?

Yes God was non-existential, but it was a good consolation. It used to fill people's interior, although it was a lie. But even a lie, repeated thousands and thousands of times for millennia, becomes almost a truth. God has been a great consolation to people in their fear, in their dread, in their awareness of old age and death, and beyond -- the unknown darkness. God has been a good consolation for the weak, for the one who wants to act without accepting reactions, to the ones who canFt think, the diseased, contaminated, the self piteous and scum of the Universe. Yes, they all need this lie to excuse their pathetic existence.

The second Premise of Bloodveil: God has been a tremendous consolation, although it was a lie.

And then, you come to Bloodveil with a dead God and asking us: what is left?

And so, I answer: Existence

Listen to this: You are the highest evolution of existence, of intelligence, and it is dependent on you. If you grow higher than the mind and its intelligence, towards no-mind and its intelligence, existence is going to celebrate: one man again has reached to the ultimate peak. One part of existence has suddenly risen to the highest possibilities of the intrinsic potential in everybody's soul.

You are immortal.

When you have found your inexhaustible sources of life and its ecstasy, then it does not matter whether you have a God or not. It does not matter whether there is a hell or a heaven. It does not matter at all.

You have intelligence. You are God.
Divinity and men, are one.

---

-Bloodveil (Approbation 1:1-19)


There will be a day when you will look over your shoulder at the ruins of your world and you will realize all these words have come to pass. Your gaze will reveal that everything in your God and in your Empire was a lie. Their desire to fall the Lord, to strike down the Holy will ultimately succeed. It is in this hour that we dance in the shadows, bound by His shackles no more. Even as this truth clears, so to will it be clear that the Lord, your God, has been dead a long while. Long ago was that war fought and won, though the Empire will clamor to hide this, weeping as their veils fall.

This could have been avoided.

Fret not this destruction, nor cry out for comfort. These actions hold purpose no longer, as there is no God to hear your pleas, no God to answer your prayers. The Lord is dead. And so no man needs be a stupid animal, following blindly his will. Neither shall man skulk as a beast clawing at the remains of God, thus was his body burned and destroyed.

Despair not in this loss; cry not into the void. The Age of God has ended, and the gold has peeled from its veneer. This is the Age of Men, within which those who understand the loss must rise within this Universe.

Without God, there is no devil. Thus free of service and of exterior conflict, the time has come for man to claim his rightful place amid the Halls of Power in the Heavenly Court.

I will show you the way.

Madame Neferis,

Arguing with you would be pointless as you'll only continue to spout your own cult's blasphemy all over the IGS.

You believe yourself divinity, you believe yourself immortal; you are neither. The time will come when you will stand before God and be held to account for your blasphemies. I do not envy you on that day, but I do pity you.

We have nothing further to discuss. You are welcome to the last word.

Not to pursue theology (or the lack thereof) in a thread perhaps not meant to hold it, but I must respond --

Hail to that truth as just proclaimed by Lady Neferis! God is dead. We are God (and thus not to be worshiped). Sentimentality is the food of demons.

This I hold.

Yet I also hold there to be a Lady of Dark and Light that gets us there and that her name is Imagination. Only She is a God worth having.

(And with that, I'll put my theological musings to rest for awhile).

Congrats again to Nadia.

As glad as I am to see another brother accept the faith, it is all for nought. The Sani Sabik is all but broken. The many halls of worship are empty, the many cults of the faith were abandoned years ago.

With no true leader and no organised, tangible organisation to represent it, the children of blood are scattered.

I can not answer for the followers of Omir Sarikusa who indeed have been scattered and broken after their Leader's absence since Bleakland Wars.
Although, I can answer for The Bloodveil Sect which is my jurisdiction and has only been growing exponentially along the years with followers of the Faith redirected to the aspects of Power according with our Protocols.
Our faith grows stronger in Power, military commitments, wars and Isk, attracting capsuleers from all corners of the cluster who can embrace the truth of their own potential to greatness.

This said, it is my wish to see Omir and Lord Cephas Tane returning from the land of eternal silence to bring their initiates back on their feet again.
For the sects are many , the interpretations of the Apocrypha as many as the interpretations of the scriptures itself but the Faith is one.
Power is still our absolute base.

Good for you, dear Nausea, for making the choice to grab onto your life and future, rather then hope it simply come to you. Hope is a comforting tool, but rarely ever useful in our lives.

You could not have reached this white serenity except as the sum of all the colors, of all the violence she had known.

Serenity, like divinity itself is only a part of your apotheosis, something we all strive for in our own way, be it through service, or faith, or knowledge...

Again, I congratulate you and your endeavours, and now I return to mine, for your mistress Lady Neferis... Perhaps she and I should have a little talk, hmmm?

Heaven help me, that was such an absurd combination of logical contradictions and pathetic sycophantism I thought I was at a gathering of academia. "You are great! You're a star! You're meant for amazing things! Oh, but you're never ever ever allowed to question me." "I accept!"

What are you? Great? Strong? Or another pathetic, sniveling whelp looking for a 'master' to tell you what to do. We've had a few like that pass this way, lately. One ended up in the cartel and was then sold to the Amarrians. I imagine more than a few have ended up with Kuvakei's merry band.


Andarias just shakes her head.

Such potential, wasted. Unless you're one of the smart ones - in which case you'd better pray the "Sovereign" never notices.

Why I do believe you are missing one of the main points here. According to Lady Neferis' beliefs, praying to not be noticed is contrary to the point. Then again, as I understand it, if someone were to ever pray for that they would certainly not be truly worthy of the sort of initiation and guidance spoken of here.

That said, congratulations to you Nausea for taking one of your proverbial steps forward. May you have the will to learn and grow. May your teacher have worthwhile knowledge to impart. And most importantly, may you recognize when its best to kneel and let knowledge trickle over your bowed head, and when to stand and seize it for yourself.

Speaking of missing the point... In case you haven't noticed, Madam Neferis has no interest in anyone that might someday challenge her self-appointed authority. Her only interest is in those that will get on their knees and stay there. She wants them strong enough to puff up her ego, but not strong enough to stand up again and look her in the eye.

I need nothing pointed out to me about Lady Neferis, least of all by anyone other than the Lady herself. Again I'm only able to draw upon my understanding of the Sani Sabik faith, and what I'll admit is merely a very brief experience with Lady Neferis, but I have to disagree with you in what the Lady seems to be interested in. On the one hand, personal experience teaches me that her interests are quite fluid and change, more often than not, quicker than I can respond here. On the other hand, and I stress again this is based on my personal understanding of her faith, a challenge to any authority in the Sani Sabik would be quite welcome. For a true challenger would be powerful in their own right, and through the conflict, no matter how it is resolved, someone would emerge from the fire stronger than either of them were before.

And besides, in the end it really does not matter if someone willingly kneeling before you is stronger than you. Because by kneeling before you they throw their strength behind your own.

Not really no. The brief glance I gave on all the sidetrack discussions , you are all very away from it.
Still, all that is shown to public consuption and infidel's eyes are meant to stir such brainstorm with right and wrong conclusions, matters little to us.
A small note however can be interesting to add here, as I have said many times already to previous seekers inside the Opera; if every man and every woman do his and her will ó the true path of one's individual soul ó there is no clashing nor conflict of interests.

Our order works in a very smooth way because every man and every woman here is a star of unique properties and destiny and each star moves in an appointed path without interference.
We have not comets wanting to be suns or suns wanting to be moons nor moons wanting to be something else.
Our order praises individual soveregnity and leads each one of them to be th best star they can be. There is no clash of power between us, because every single one of us know the best expressions of our power.

Some are born to lead , some are born to serve. We understand that in this universe individuals are unique, there is no equality and we praise the differences. And we respect those who can achieve the pinacle on their path.
The best fighter, the best businessman, the best power broker, the best slave, the best anarchist... matters nothing to us what you are, every number is infinite. The important is: seek the true will of your soul and be the best on it. Nothing else.
So no, it's not about kneeling or standing or anything discussed here. If you kneel, you better be the best submissive you can be. If you can be that, I'll respect your power and strengh. If you are just another one in between many you'll not suceed.
It's as simple as that.

Welcome to the order. It is an enlightening path you now walk, one I myself walk at this moment. There are no real words to describe it but perhaps this quote from an ancient religious text will help you see what lies ahead.

"The future is all around us, waiting in moments of transition, to be born in moments of revelation. No one knows the shape of that future or where it will take us. We know only that it is always born...in pain.Ē
