Amalgamation exercises, like the couple described in Bruce's Magnum Opus papers, are useful in loosening up blockages in one's energy system. I find closing one's eyes to be necessary in doing these kinds of exercises, because your dreams, desires and past experiences all embed themselves into your the cosmic body over time and become distorted into complexes. Closing your eyes helps bypass the ego, which has been tuned by solely material sector perceptions to this point. It's fine to feel anger and frustration when asked to dig deeper into oneself for more honesty, but be proactive and clear that energy or contemplate what that energy blockage is trying to say. Why are you angry?
Trust me. It used to get angry quite often in the middle of my energy clearing sessions, but if you imagine your energy system as a car that has been running for years without an oil change and you're just now getting around to doing something about it, it's not going to be an easy task. You're gonna have a heck of a lot of clogs that have hardened over the years that need softening before they can be broken up and flushed out. Cleaning it all out doesn't happen with one pump. You gotta keep going at it if you really want yourself to run clean and easily.
Sure. This site may be doing nothing wrong, but it could be better! The highest form of social impulses are the ones that excite the credenciveness phreno-organ. Mark Passio, a lecturer I've mentioned a few times on here, has great, cold and rational, well thought-out presentations on natural law and various other occult topics. But besides just providing his logically deduced knowledge base, he transfers a chord of seriousness, of imminent and persistent threat that is happening right now, and his content one-by-one shows you where he's coming from. He may deliver his material with vitriol at times, but the impression I was always left with, and the others I've talked to at one of his presentations, was that he's the speaker you come to see, because (from what I see now) his assertions stimulate passions that make you want to take action! It's empowering. That's everything the credenciveness behavior-organ is meant to stimulate: you into power.LoneBear wrote: I would like to know what I am doing wrong?joeyv23 wrote:Nothing
The way I see it, if Antiquatis is supposed to materialize into a school of Reciprocal systems and magick study, there better be real magick going on in that school or its a fraud. The defining agent in any separate organ-ization is power. Is capability. Contractors organize to build buildings. Dark occultists organize to get others to do their work for them so they can rule the world. If you don't have any power, you organize into Anti-Fa and other communist organizations. Aspiring witches and wizards organize to.... study and do magick. By the very visualization of one doing magick from any fantasy, fiction or mythical tale, it involves a degree of assertion.
Looking around Antiquatis, I'm looking at a giant library, and that poll is just one of the books down one of the aisles.
Is there any way to feature a thread on the main page? Stick it there? Make it stand out? That may help get responses. By emphasizing a point of focus.
If Danny is concerned we're not going to carry on with his work, I understand. It's a difficult task being on the outskirts of a society we don't even want to be a part of anymore, as a species are physically separate from, and yet have to interact with for survival and helping others that are evolving the same. The bananas don't sound bad to me. We that have been studying have been growing ethically, naturally, and handing out wizarding 101 pamphlets 1.) isn't going to hurt us, and 2.) is sort of like a code in itself, so that if a muggle ever got a hold of it, it's not like he'd be able to all of a sudden conjure all the bananas and flamethrowers he'd want now without deep understanding of self anyway.Danny boy is getting in the mood to write something, but does not know what to write on. Was considering a paper on wizardry, but unsure if people are ready for something like that. As Doctor Who (Pat Troughton) said, "give a monkey control of his environment and he'll fill the world with bananas!" So if you have specific suggestions, let him know over on ConsciousHugs.
What's proof is that danny's knowledge in the area would go to waste should he ascend and we'd have to carve our own paths. Though I am definitely on the path of success, it would take longer without the headmaster's faith and assistance.
