I am a Satanist. I hold myself to be my highest authority, my own personal god, and I worship no one else, give myself over to no one else, but consider myself and my life to be entirely my property and resposibility. I say Satanist because, to me, Satan symbolically represents the regection of the idea of subservience to another being, and supports holding oneself to be the highest authority.
I belong to no one but me, and so it is entirely up to me to make my life and my world into what I want it to be. I do not have the luxury of waiting for someone else to plan purpose for my life, or to save me from my own stupidity. I must accept all concequences, positive and negative, as entirely my own.
