October 20 marks the 14th birthday of my youngest brother – the bunso in the family — Benjamin Michael. We have a seven-year gap, but come on, that never really becomes an issue when it comes to being close to one’s brother, right? He has now entered the age wherein guys usually get into all sorts of trouble with underage drinking, girls and what not. He will make mistakes and learn from them. Good thing he has two older brothers – myself and BJ — who could readily guide him through these trying times. My brother and I are staying in Manila but we will be more than willing to make time for our little bro. Seriously, who wouldn’t make time to help out the baby in the family? Yup, Michael, you’re the baby. 🙂 (more…)

As Above Me, So Below Me… (my will on Earth shall be done!) was not the original name of this blog. This name was only adapted only I did some research on organized Satanism. To this day, the Satanism post is among my most read posts – along with almost every other philotheological post that I’ve made in this journal. The line was lifted from one of the Satanic prayers off LaVey’s organization. It’s a great line in itself – it projects the autonomy of an indivudal and expresses his power to change his environment without much regard for external factors. To make the long story short, I don’t consider myself a Satanist, but as far as that teaching goes, I’m very much on board.
