Our universe is huge and complex, so what we do to know our place in it has to be Simple
We can come to know our place by having direct experience of our 'Self', the great Soul we are. The easiest methods are the one's free from dogma, other people's belief system rules and our own.
We don't need a guru to lead us, nor be involved in any other way that sets one person above all others. Freedom to experience, and grow without boundaries, is the aim.
Why is spiritual growth hard?
We all know growth usually comes from following a traditional path, one that's been used by thousands of people before us. With so many people choosing those same paths it has caused the Belief-Systems to become ingrained into our thoughts and beliefs about everything.

Do you want things written on this thread? Do you want these things in U2U's? I could write a book myself about the many experiences my family and I have had and the things we did in reaction to them.

Good evening folks,
For the interest in the sharing of knowledge, a few of us have decided to come together and share the pearls of wisdom learned from masters, books and a lifetime of experience.
Lets use this opportunity to write a global grimoire of occult knowledge to push back the tide of the unknown.
So that we may attempt to better understand the great mystery and all its facets of realities; I invite all who bear knowledge worth sharing to write down their teachings so that the community may grow stronger, wiser and more connected.
With this 'book', it is my hope that in the days to come more of us will be prepared for whatever comes.
Much love and blessings,

Everyone is replying saying thanks for the thread yet noone is actually offering any real knowledge or wisdom. This says volumes about the difficulty of actually making this some sort of online Grimoire. such wisdom isnt necesarily "read about". It must be experienced, observed and earned. Ive no doubt there are many people who do have vast amounts of information to share, but I think it should be made clear that true understanding of the "occult" is not something that can be done one night while browsing the internet. I do encourage the sharing of the info, I just think a disclaimer should be made that one shouldnt expect instant or even effective results just by reading online. Thank you!
