Re: How to Deal With Less Intelligent People

Re: How to Deal With Less Intelligent People

I guess some people may find this useful, but in my opinion, these are just the basics of not being an asshat. I've known many stupid people who have enriched my life by the quality of their character. Yes. I would like to learn how to not be an asshat, please. Do you have any tips? If you have tro...

Living Occult Role Models

Do you have any living occult role models? Is there a person that you deeply respect and would like to resemble someday? Sometimes I wonder where occultism is going, and I figure it can't go any farther than its best practitioners.

Re: Did I summon somthing?

Any recommendations of systems of magick for beginners then? Why do you want to practice magic? Mostly for knowledge and spiritual growth. Nothing really in terms of material gain. In addition to Desecrated's booklist, I'd recommend www.quareia.com. Modern Magic by Donald Michael Craig is a gentle ...

Re: Did I summon somthing?

I've heard more stories of Enochian Magic ruining people's lives than any other forum of magic. More than the Goetic demons, for sure. It has a reputation of being dangerous for experienced occultists, including the people who discovered it. One of the first folks I met on this forum had a bad exper...

Are etheric shells conscious?

I've been thinking about ghosts recently. When a person dies and the etheric body separates from the other bodies, is that etheric shell a separate, conscious person? Or, is it like a robot that can move and talk when someone gives it some energy, but otherwise remains inert? I thought they were mor...

Re: A list of questions for you all

Re: Mantra advice needed

I need advice on mantra recitation. Can I recite mantras lying on bed comfortably (sleeping posture)? Or is it compulsary that I have to sit erect? Is it harmful if mantra is recited while lying down on bed? I'm asking this because I find it so much more comfortable than sitting posture. It depends...

Re: being blueBoy

If you decide to go on retreat, there is a center in Canada that I have heard about. I very much enjoy the YouTube videos of Yuttadhammo Bhikku, who is one of the monks at this center.

Re: What tradition did Franz Bardon study?

Bardon isn't the only source which attributes the dagger/sword to fire and the wand/staff to air, in fact I always thought these correspondences made far more sense than the GD ones even before I read Bardon's work. As for his education, it really depends on how much you're willing to accept. Proba...

Re: False Tarot reading and other scams live on TV

Well from the way you describe them they certainly sound fake. There's nothing wrong with selling occult services, but I feel like there's an inverse relationship between popularity and authenticity. It's illegal to sell occult services where I live for anything other than "entertainment."

Re: Where do you think "Extra Souls" come from?

1. Animals can be reborn as humans, and vice versa.

2. There are an endless number of planets with beings who can be reborn as humans on earth.

3. There are an endless number of beings in alternate planes of existence that can be reborn here as humans.

I generally lean to the side of "selling your soul seems like a really bad idea".
This term almost never has a positive connotation.

Sorry, but I've never heard of them. Maybe you should ask on the traditional witchcraft forum. To be honest the bit about influencing governments sounds shady to me. Beware of cults.
