The key as you have already said is to educate yourself.....Not to hang with baited breath on the postings of internet fantasists!
If there's one change I'd really like to see in humanity it would be to to eradicate this apparent need for 'prophets', 'gurus' &
'mentors'.....We should be our own moral compass, guided by our family and friends and not by those who would set themselves on pedestals above

You see someone setting them self above you and I see a teacher, teaching. They're everywhere.
Here is what you may be missing when educating YOUR self.... I don't know because I don't you but it seems to me you have much more soul searching
to complete, or maybe your journey doesn't require such.
I have had many teachers throughout the years who have taught me much about myself and others. For me, I have to go to the root of something to
completely understand it. The same can be said when I think of "who am I", "what is my purpose", and so on. These deeper thoughts go even deeper
as to "where will I go when I die", "where did my son go when he died" where did my boyfriend go when he died". These type of questions when
asked even within the mind and not spoken are always answered via MY journey. Maybe you are not like me..... maybe you are.
The only way you and I are even having a conversation on the net is because we are in a "state" of awareness. Awareness is not a "new age"
term.... far from it.... it could be called "ancient" age and be more accurate.
A state of being, a state of mind, a state of belief comes from thought.... an awareness of said thought. We do not SEE thoughts unless they are
written. The written thought is a Word. Without a thought we would not find our self in this "state".
On a quantum level we can SEE particles interacting, reacting, intertwining with one another and it can be said this is the way we can be viewed as
well. On each level of existence IN light there is a "state" of being.
Have you ever studied the DNA and what we "know" about it? I can't tell you just how much you can learn by learning about the nature of the human
being from the root of the DNA. I encourage you to go in depth and get to the root of all you would like to know IF you are even concerned with
spiritual growth because for me it is indeed a spiritual "state" of being when you get to the root of questions you want answered. The answer is in
the "root" Word and can be found if you search for it.
Light, thoughts, and words are the reality in which we see and operate. That is the root of our reality.
When studying the different philosophies throughout or history one can find others who have contemplated and think they have figured out who or what
is said to be creators of said light, thoughts, and words. There are many but when you get to the root of cause, it really doesn't matter to me.
Hermes and Thoth some say are the same soul. Hermetics is a cool philosophy and if you haven't studied it I encourage you to do so.
I can appreciate this "state" I find myself in and regardless of who created such is not for me to worry with at all. I enjoy the pondering of such
and do not "need" a guru to save me. I don't need saved.
Hermes holds the staff and to me he is the Creator of the Word because from what I have studied in regards to what I already knew and the angle in
which I see it, He is same soul as Jesus, he holds the life in which we live by the light of the blueprinted staff/dna. It makes sense to me via the
journey I am on which is a more spiritual one than some.
This is not something that needs a label. My journey is not a new age journey because the new age philosophy has many states just as an other
philosophy such as Christianity.... any religion.. any philosophy (same thing as religion) is nothing but a "state" of awareness when getting to the
Your belief sets the stage of mind building, soul building, and when the day is over and you find yourself back in the light in a different "state"
of being and or awareness your blueprint/dna is the light you take with you.
Hellenic thinkers such as Plato if living today would be labeled as "new age" by people who cared little about that particular philosophy or have
not studied such. Its just an old way for new people to discover who they are by getting deep into thought of the root cause, which some call God.
The Arts depict different philosophies as well. Our culture will never get rid of the light of which allows us to think and in turn feel such a
closeness with nature and or creation itself.
The last words of Thomas Edison was "Its beautiful over there".
My reality tells me there is an energy force within us that lives on. This philosophy is not "new". Its been around since man began
