Re: What is Jesus

Jesus Christ is an idea, echoed if not outright duplicated in nearly every mythology (only ones that I am aware of that don't have a Christ figure( as defined son of God, bringer of wisdom, that dies and is resurrected) are Islam, Shinto, and some other forms of animism) both predating Christianity ...

Re: Industrialized Magick

Perhaps "lower your expectations" was poor word choice, but I feel you get where I was headed. Anyway to the point you made in your final final paragraphs, I think that the astrological concept of the rescission of the signs fits there. We are currently under the sign of Aquarius, if I understand co...

Re: Industrialized Magick

I think I may have a slightly different point of view from most, but as a mechanic and one versed in the occult I find myself surrounded by "magic" every day in the shop. In most things I view magic as simply the ancient title of science, for me many things make a lot of sense when approached this w...

Re: The biggest cause of suffering today

Well forgive me for feeding the troll. I felt at least the initial claim held some water and felt I had experience that could contribute.

Re: The biggest cause of suffering today

So to your point on suffering and it being a result of lack of respect for the community. I feel you are getting somewhere extremely personal for me. Lately there have been studies done on specifically war veterans with mental trauma (but its not a far stretch to apply the findings to others) and ho...

Re: This was in my house...

That seriously looks like a camel spider, I hate those things. I had one run at me when I was active duty and under the cargo floor of a C17 inspecting the floor for repair. Yeah, eff those things...

Re: Why do you study the occult?

When I was still just dating my wife she attuned me and trained me in Reiki. After that I was able to feel things I hadn't before, I was infinitely more aware of what was going on around me. I also started seeing things that were unexplainable. That coupled with an intellectual predisposition and an...

Re: Hello All

Thank you for the welcome. While I would be lying if I said I don't care about a vibrant community with many people and a quick pace, I will say there is something to be said for a community with a few engaged people that are knowledgeable and accepting. I will also assure you, this "colonist" will ...

Re: Why do you study the occult?

I started simply out of curiosity, a predisposition, and a convenient inroad through a class that was held locally. The first step I suppose was easy for me as my wife is a Reiki Master Teacher, so I am well versed some other "non traditional modes of thought". As I was growing up I always had quest...

Hello All

Just a quick introduction, screen name is my first initial, and last name. I was raised Christian but it never sat well with me, too many rules and not enough independent thought. After a stint in the military where one of my jobs was in honor guard performing funeral details my faith and belief sys...
