Re: A question for Mages and Mystics

Nature is neutral, and will always strive for equilibrium. Desire and nondesire, action and nonaction, pleasant and unpleasant. All the myriad things of existence are born from the dance of polarity. The myriad things are all part of The All, and all born of The Void. Nothing is isolated from the or...

Re: Has anyone tried this? (Initiation into Hermetics)

Hi, I'm reading a book by Franz Bardon entitled 'Initiation into Hermetics' In this book the author suggests that if a magician trains his mind he will be able to transfer his consciousness into an inanimate object, or, if he advances, into an animal or another person. I would say that I am an open...

Re: Are most magicians Liberals?

Statistically speaking, the more educated someone is, the more likely they are to believe in and support liberal and progressive politics. You can ponder why that is for yourself, or do research on the numerous articles (both public and academic) exploring the subject. :) Many experienced magicians ...

Also, if you come to a newborn with expectation, or condemnation, or anything but the open willingness to meet their needs, then I will say you are doing it wrong.

Re: "Myth" of soul ties through sex

You're looking for the wrong thing. Sex, in and of itself, will not create a Soul Bond. Soul Bonds are intense and even with a full on sex ritual, you're not going to get one without specific preparation and something akin to a magical marriage. However, sex along with many other forms of human inte...
