The Spirituality of the Vampire.

Post by Victor on 18.06.09 19:17

Unlike what many outsiders may believe, or even imagine, the Vampire is a being of a strong and deep sense of spirituality. Its beliefs, its practices and its overall mindset are at all times influenced by an overwhelming cocktail of physical and metaphysical senses.
Modern new-age beliefs have taught us that the Vampire is a being from who every energy practitioner, or even every human, should fearfully run away from. On the other hand, the proliferating Vampire lifestyle community, easily found showing off their fangs, capes and useless senses in countless night clubs across several states shows us that the Vampire is a party whore without any sense of knowledge, culture and self-respect. All of these people, groups and communities are nothing but a curtain of fume to where the real Vampire society lies... in silence.
But what do all of these people have in common? From the Wiccans, to the life-stylers, from the wannabes to the New Agers? Ignorance. They see Vampires as some form of evil, wether creature or archetype, that has no fear and lives to kill, or in those lost cases, to dance at night parties and show off his fangs. The reality of the Vampire is much deeper than that, and its greatest strength, and from that its major danger, lies within its groundbreaking system of spirituality and sense of tradition. This system, this culture and this spirituality, one way or another is always driven by a philosophy we all know as Asetianism. Every true Vampire tradition, from the hidden exotic lands of the Middle East and their dangerous rituals, to the Vampire masters from Asia and their martial arts, or the secular Vampire covens filled with tradition and hierarchy from Europe... their systems have one root in common - Asetianism. There lies the true secret behind the myth of the Vampire, the true realm of Immortality. A place that Ancient Egyptians were so familiarized with... and where Vampirism was really born.
We can take it as myth, we can take it just as a beautiful inspiring story, we can take it as plain and pure metaphysical mastery or simply as an enemy to be hunted down and destroyed... but we can no longer ignore them. The Asetians are no longer a hidden forgotten voice in the myst of confusion in the diverse occult community, they are now a strong, decided fist commanding an invisible force... the Aset Ka.
Just like the Elders use to call it... the Old Empire.

Very well put, Victor. As to the first part of your post, where you speak about the wannabees and the party-whoring, carnavalesque aspect of "popular Vampirism", much of it should be blamed to the Gothic subculture and also to the cinematographic/fictional/cultural and often campy view of the Vampire (i.e. Count Dracula, Hammer movies, Twilight's shiny teen vamps, etc.) The word "Vampire" is associated with many of these fictional characters and also with the Christian demonization of the unknown. Very few people are fully aware of the real roots of Vampirism and of the real meaning of it.

That is why there cannot ever be a "popular vampire movement" that is open to society, such as those ridiculous houses and clubs that host pricey conventions and seminars for the gullible followers. True Vampirism is indeed a very spiritual way of life, more than many are willing to accept, and it is in itself, by definition, underground.

This is an interesting post, Victor. It always surprises many people when they discover about the underlaying spirituality beneath the tradition of the Vampire and mostly about its roots to Ancient Egypt. Vampires are beings that regularly meditate, have many complex ritualistic practices, have a strong inherent sense of spirituality and of the ethereal reality, care about their own diets and health, both on a physical and mental levels, strive for an incredibly strict sense of loyalty, unity and family, excel at countless occult practices and master many forms of knowledge, from science to arts and culture. I am sure that many people have no clue that Vampires and their tradition is as complex and as fascinating as all of this...

I also forgot to mention how I agree with Syrianeh. The vital importance of secrecy from the Vampire society may not be obvious on a first approach, and may seem far too unnecessary elitism in a modern age where we all fight for knowledge and evolution. But the subject goes much beyond that, and the secrecy connected with Vampirism, most particularly when it comes to the subject of Asetianism, that is seen as the "high magick" and "higher tradition" in the Vampire community, secrecy may play a very important and justified role. It is in many ways thanks to that same secrecy, that so many condemn, that the Aset Ka has kept alive, strong and well for all these years... and also an undeniably strong way to keep a spiritual tradition pure, by forcing it out of the influence of the common and mundane society, that would judge, deface and exploit such a beautiful system that we all learned to love.

It's very interesting & sometimes funny as hell to hear other people's beliefs & theories about Spirituality, Vampirism, Conspiracy Theories, etc. And I don't mean that in an offensive way at all. Just being 100% honest. Honesty is a big thing to me. For instance, the way Vampires are portrayed in movies today, is a big joke to me. The only Vampire movies I like are Queen of the Damned & some of the Underworld movies. I personally believe there is a big chance Vampires do walk this world today, it's just unfortunate that most live secretly. It would be beyond amazing to truly be 1 or know 1. It's weird how addicting these beliefs can be. I have spent many time consuming hours thinking and researching these things. And I strongly belief Vampires originated from many Ancient Egyptians. Like (Sekhmet).

I believe the fact that the modern vampire is perceived as evil and is mythological is very usefull for those who are vampires and those who study vampirism.The aset ka avoids this way popularity and sharing its knowledge to many ignorant such as Wiccans,Humans who follow the vampire lifestyle,etc.
