Aokigahara also known as the Sea of Trees is a 35 km forest that lies at the north west base of Mount Fuji in Japan
The forest, which has a historic association with demons in Japanese mythology, is a popular place for suicides. In 2002, 78 bodies were found, despite numerous signs, in Japanese and English, urging people to reconsider their actions.
Due to the wind-blocking density of the trees, and an absence of wildlife, the forest is known for being eerily quiet.
Depression is the passive implosion of your ego. You let yourself erode slowly, because your destruction seems inescapable. You have no salvation.
"On Sunday, July 14, the Satanic Temple, a New York-based organization that seeks to foster "benevolence and empathy among all people" through Satan, performed a ritual called a "pink mass" at the Mississippi gravesite of Catherine Idalette Johnston, mother of WBC founder Fred Phelps Jr."
"The Pink Mass was performed twice — once with two gay men, and once with two lesbians — in an affirmation of the Satanist Temple’s belief in "freedom and the pursuit of happiness for all people." The temple is now encouraging same-sex couples to visit the grave and perform their own pink masses."
