Christos Beest, 1998 eh
For several years, in keeping with Sinister Strategy, the Order of Nine Angles has gradually increased its public role, and made itself accessible to anyone who seriously desired Initiation. The accessibility of the Order has been achieved through the publication of teachings which were, up until the 1980’s, genuinely secret. Gradually, via publications such as Fenrir, the real nature of Satanism has been revealed, countering successfully the insipid, tame and established versions, as well as creating a much broader influence within the ‘Occult scene’ in general. This ‘role’ of Occult Order played a necessary part in what is a much greater strategy involving many aspects, some of which are conventionally understood as esoteric; some of which, ‘exoteric.’ The establishment of various websites featuring ONA teachings has fulfilled the strategy regarding conventional Occultism. There is little – the developing Sinister Tarot and the various musickal forms excerpted – that needs to be added to what is now easily accessible to those interested in Traditional Satanism.
To continue to develop the present availability of the Order and its teachings would be counterproductive: the Order would start to become something it is not – a conventional occult organization a la Church of Satan, and would rank alongside all the rest of the ‘esoteric’ Orders that abound today, with their commercial literature and merchandise. In fact, the aura of the ONA is even now gradually becoming diluted – the real Darkness and terror is becoming something of the past. Thus it is time for the Order to finally withdraw from public attention and return to its natural state: that of a genuine secret, esoteric organization. Thus can its various activities (as outlined in the Order MS, A Gift for the Prince, and others) continue to be carried out effectively, and thus can the next stages – the creation of two practical esoteric forms – begin to be implemented.
The ONA will no longer involve itself in any aspect of the Occult ’scene,’ and its members will no longer openly recruit interested individuals according to the policy that has been adopted over the past few years. ‘Rigel Press’ will cease to publish Order teachings and those MSS and items that exist are yet to be created will be circulated amongst Order members only. However, the other individuals/Sinister orders are free to publish and use the teachings as they deem fit. For the next year only one contct point for the Order will remain – the present UK box address.
Thus the real darkness and danger return, as it has as it shall be, for Aeons to come.
