Re: Guide for study guides

Who is the website supposed to "touch"? That question has to be answered before you put up a single page. The answer determines what kind of tone and feel you present at the top level of the web site. My target for this site is the Elder Race, which is comprised of approximately 86,250 "Ancients" (...

Re: Universe 101

Re: study guide for The Initiate

what might constitute a map for the Initiate? You must draw the map of where you currently are, for only you know where you stand. Others can provide a map of your destination, if you describe it accurately enough to be recognized. Some of the basic signposts are: 1) The physical universe -- physic...

Universe 101

The "Master Universe" is a system of galaxies and galactic neighborshoods arranged in a roughly spherical pattern in space, on the periphery of what astronomers now called a "galactic bubble". The center of this bubble is comprised of a quasi-stellar object (quasar) remnant. The Master Universe is n...

Lone Bear, you will start a new user group, Anla'shok studies, locked but possibly public, on which the study guides will be posted.

Re: Dreams

Reading some of the postings makes me think of time I spend in the wilderness, and in particular, how much more I dream and how much clearer the dreams are. That is a result of the "psychic space" available in the wilderness. I'm sure you've heard of Auras, right? The mind and spirit, being non-loc...

The Tarot trumps are also a good archetypal reference, though you can't get interpreters to agree on the correspondence of trum...

Not a simple request to fulfill... like most people, I felt I never "fit in" with those around me.

It may be the case that the concepts I am using, or the way I am presenting them are just new, and not so much the case that what I am attempting to explain is inherently intellectually challenging to understand.

But how does one state such a tenet, and how does one evaluate attentiveness to spirit??

Re: The Alliance

Long ago, and far away, my old high school English teacher told me the way to recognize good literature was whether or not it taught you something about life. After all these years, I would say the way to recognize good literature (or movies, or music) is whether or not it speaks to your spirit. An...

Finally, my own personal distortions prompt me to recoil at the idea of righteousness being supposedly good. I'm sure the holy crusades thought so, too.
