We already have flags for that and since we have a great variety of them and not that big of a user base everyone can use their own. I've been using indigo pill flag since day one and I think that it serves as my name in this community. The only downside to it is that people may overlay the ideas they have about the flag on the person behind it.
I think that having some sort of individuality, whether by names or by flags is a good idea, but the options are already there - you can post with a name and with a flag, but few people use it. You can't really say "okay guys, from this day lets use names". Well… you can, but do you think that it will change anything?
Also, you are posting with an anonymous flag yourself.
>But then again. I caught myself on a thought - if you practice maybe you should keep silent about it?
Pretty much this. I practice a fair bit and have many experiences, but I'm often reluctant to speak about them. Most of the time it feels unnecessary to as they would only be blog posts.
>hey guys I did this meditation and that ritual and it made me contact some mage from another galaxy and we smoked some astral weed together, he's a cool bloke
While the stories and experiences could be really nice to read, there is not much point in them unless you seek guidance. Even then I'd be weary of revealing too much, mostly because of this whole "law of secrecy" thing.
>worrying about not making mistakes
You really are something different :^)
Anyway, don't worry, even if you are well on your way you can and probably will still do mistakes. Both mundane and magical. Although of course I'm not certain about the mundane ones as people at some point tend to cut themselves off from mundane life. Also depends what you mean by mundane. Is it anything not magical or do you mean the daily grind that comes with living in society?
Also, it isn't as black and white as you might think, you can have a mundaneness in your life even if you are a magician (although most consider it as something unpleasant). You can also straight up live a mundane life by unmundane means.
>The degenerate Judeo-Christian ritual magician kabbalist who believed himself to be the reincarnation of Eliphas Levi?
Whatever you might think about Crowley, he was very powerful and his legacy continues to this day. I think that is worth considering.
>Does this even need discussion?
If you think that he was a hack then you might find it worth it to join the discussion, if only to present your point of view.
You know your boy don't fuck with no Judeo-Christian stuff, but learning and understanding is a whole other matter.
Tbh music was a gateway to the occult for me and I'm very particular about my music, which is not to say that I listen to only a couple of genres.
>what's your operative music?
Dark ambient, drone, hnoise and power electronics, breakcore, Coil. Less often some neofolk and black metal.
>what's your thoughts on death grips?
They've got some very nice albums but I don't really like them ever since they became the hottest /mu/ meme. They've got some nice lyrics, but tbh Clipping eats them for dinner when it comes to experimental hip-hop.
>Human as; a human soul - yes, souls are defined to species
Depends on your definitions I guess. For me soul (atman) is uniform to… well, everything. Every living being has the same soul which is part (or rather which just is) the world soul (Brahman), but in this view soul is just your consciousness, totally passive and transcendental point of awareness. It operates on several bodies - physical, astral, mental.
>Evoke ENKI or any of the Gods of Sumer and inquire if you wish to learn more.
I had some very nice experiences with Inanna. She is great!
>I've always thought that. Can anyone who's into astrology explain how they think it works?
Well, I don't really know that much on it, but I will try my best.
In Picatrix (the only serious astrological book I studied, although just in small part) the idea is that there are currents of some mystical force permeating the universe, and this forces can be used by the magician if they reach the Earth and the other planets have a great influence on these forces. It's like a cascade - forces flowing to Earth, but for example getting derailed by some planet and not reaching it with full force.
I don't know how it is supposed to work either.
In Hindu esoteric astrology (and in Western one too if I'm not mistaken) planets are Deities (or rather each planet has a Deity presiding over it) so it comes down to certain forces these entities represent.
So, from what I can tell - the universe is full of cosmic forces which can be accessed, but I don't really know the mechanics of it.
