I'm not going to enter into active participation in this thread, as I respect everyone's beliefs, provided they acknowledge them as such. I am,
however, going to watch this thread to take note of the posers.
Thanks for saying hello and I respect you decision to participate passively. Not sure whether the word "posers" was intentional.
Quite intentional. Although I do not, myself, believe in Magick any more than I believe in any other religion, I understand its tenets. I knew the
Bonewitz brothers and have had friends who were seriously committed to various "mystical" paths, including Tibetan Tantra, Thelemic Magick and
traditional Jewish Qabala. There are some on ATS who make pretense to great mystical powers. I cannot account for all of them, but some of them are
hilariously off base.
That's what I thought. Well , enjoy it. That is all I can say.
It is a bit reminiscent of tournaments in the old days where mysterious contestants would arrive from distant places dressed in their own unique
attire. Each would claim to have a unique unbeatable style.
The same would apply to ancient magical conventions. Again, characters would turn up and each claiming to have superior powers and ready to be put to
There is no harm in this. As you say yourself , there are some who might make pretence while others will simply cherish the opportunity to reveal
something profound but between the lines. I hope we will get colourful characters.
