Baphomet, since the inception of the concept under this name, has been the symbol of individual spirituality, growth, and the search for inner truth. Baphomet has been taken as the symbol of Satanism … Baphomet is within all of us, and no High Priest, Magistrate, or Black Pope can hold any authority over us without standing on shaky ground. The authority they claim to possess is only the authority we allow. The new order is rising, and reclaiming this authority for itself. Baphomet calls … we who are willing know the truth through the yearnings of our own hearts and minds will rise to power. It is only a matter of time.
