"Magick isn't something you do, it's something we are." Donald Michael Kraig

I've been a Magickian since I can recall. As a matter of fact, I was ushered to The Path when I met mine Holy Guardian Angel at the age of twelve. Here's how this meeting transpired: I had always been curious about the "what happens when we leave this plane". Having been raised strict Catholic, I was enamored with the ritual of Mass. The consecrations, the prayers, the transmutations of bread and wine into blood and flesh; how we come to reach Apotheosis every Sunday, as all of our sins are washed away. Having found a deck of Tarot cards while perusing my friend's Mom's small library (which, fortuitously was Crowley's Thoth deck), I instinctively knew I could understand what the images said but I didn't have the training to internalize them into thought-forms to use as direction.

So my quest began. One day, I walked to Merlin's Books in Tampa on Dale Mabry and bee-lined to the Occult/Metaphysical section. Being a kid and broke as hell with only a couple bucks in my pocket for a drink, I perused the wall pulling book after book until I came to one which drew me in: The Book of the sacred Magic of Abramelin The Mage, which, as I'd come to understand as the goal, is conversing with one's Holy Guardian Angel. I held that book close to an hour wondering how I was going to buy it? Having thought it through - and battling my internal struggle of right-vs-wrong - I made the decision to steal it. I slipped the book in my jeans, asked the guy at the counter if he had any Green Goblin comics, after shaking his head (didn't even look up to answer me) I walked out nervous and shaking with anticipation that I was going to get caught the moment I left!

As I had a five mile walk back to my Dad's house, and constantly looking over my shoulder, I went half a mile and decided to wait for a bus, foregoing my drink to get home. This is where the Magick happened.

I sat on the bench devouring every word, every picture, trying to dissect the magic squares, when a calm voice came from my right. I closed the book immediately thinking it was someone from the bookshop coming to get me for my theft. Far, far from it. He was a black elderly man in his fifties or so. What was most curious were his bright blue eyes and pure white hair. What was more disturbing was that he never opened his mouth to speak to me. When my eyes locked with his he spoke telepathically.

Now, you may scoff and think this bullsh!t, and I don't care. I know what happened.

He spoke in a tonality free of any linguistic aberration or drawl. His words were pure and amazingly soothing. He asked what I was reading? I dropped my gaze having felt the pinch of Catholic guilt grabbing me, and showed him the cover. I told him I'm, "looking for God." I vividly recall him running his index finger over the cover then his words rang in my head saying, " My Son, look at me."

When I did he smiled the most gentle, warming smile I've ever felt. "You only need to look within your own heart to find God." Then he laid his hand on my shoulder telling me to be careful getting home.

He handed me the book as I glanced for a second the opposite way to see if the bus was coming. When I turned my head towards him. he was gone.

I never got on the bus. I walked and cried the rest of the way home. To've felt divinity changed everything. I knew right then there was more than this material existence. That's how my quest as, what Dion Fortune labeled, a Philosophical Magickian began.

Through the years I've studied and practiced various Magickal disciplines and paths, each of which have merit in their own right and something of value to offer, but the most robust, and truest, to me, is Thelema. Aleister Crowley's Thelema is best described as "The method of science, the aim of religion." What appeals most to me with the Thelemic perspective to the Magickal Arts is the freedom of it. Though there are rules and constraints in the rituals and the acumen has to be followed; but the joy of freedom. To be able to bring in your experiences and personality in the fold of your occult learning, is most alluring to me as a practicing occultist.

My aim in this thread is to hear other opinions, share experiences and help to learn from each other.

Incidentally, I still have that stolen copy of Abramelin which sits prominently on my bookshelf next to his brothers and sisters.

Do you even know crowleys teachings on child sex then your going to say thats such a great thing? I rebuke you and crowley and all this satanic activity.

You think it was some special angel you spoke with?

2 corinthians 11:14
And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

You're an idiot. If the Most High was real he wouldn't allow HIS priests to put their fingers in little boys' a$$es every Sunday at mass.

Your God is the myth everyone hides behind to shield them from their own desires and guilt. Obviously you haven't read your own Bible. Read the passage in Mark which described Jesus and a young boy having homosexual relations:

Mark 10:34 and 10:35 and the second in the middle of Mark 10:46. Fragment 1
And they came to Bethany. And there was a woman there, whose brother was dead. And she came and fell down before Jesus and said to him: Son of David, have mercy on me. But the disciples rebuked her. And in anger Jesus went away with her into the garden where the tomb was; and immediately a loud voice was heard from the tomb; and Jesus went forward and rolled away the stone from the door of the tomb. And immediately he went in where the young man was, stretched out his hand and raised him up, grasping him by the hand. But the young man looked upon him and loved him, and began to entreat him that he might remain with him. And when they had gone out from the tomb, they went into the young man’s house; for he was rich. And after six days Jesus commissioned him; and in the evening the young man came to him, clothed only in linen cloth upon his naked body. And he remained with him that night; for Jesus was teaching him the mysteries of the Kingdom of God. And from there he went away and returned to the other bank of the Jordan.

Roman Catholic church is not a Christian institution. If you recall history at the end of it's life then Cesar adopted Christian religion. Catholicism is 100% different from Orthodox Christianity, all holiday dates are different, for example you have Christmas same day there is winter solstice, and Easter is same day the birth of goddess of death. If you compare things, you will find out that a lot of Roman Catholic holiday events have a hidden meaning behind them and are celebrating something else entirely. It's not a mistake, because Roman Catholic religion is continuation of Roman empire and has nothing to do with Christianity. True Christian religion today is Orthodox.

Now it gets even more madder. Throughout history and today essentially any war is crusades against something. You take middle east wars by murica, crusades. You take sht in Ukraine, Georgia, and none military sht in Baltic countries and Poland it's a crusade against Russian Orthodox church. Quite literally in the Ukraine right now you have quite literally Nazi's, and government that destroys Cyrillic alphabet, rewrites history, promotes homosexuality, there is a religious war where Churches are being taken over by Roman Catholics.

If you ever wondered why pedophilia is so prevalent among Catholic's, well it is because it has nothing to do with Christian religious. Heck, they even promote homosexuality. There is new term out, Gay Christian.

Sodomy's a sin.

The Roman Catholic church bought the rights to Christianity. Like Disney just bought the rights to everything entertainment, the Catholics have absorbed every bit of the mystique and legend that is Jesus Christ. Any orthodox religious organization calling itself Christian is immediately subjugated by the arm of the Holy See.

Though I have to admit the religious right are quickly losing any sense of credibility as the whole of mass-organized religion slowly circles the toilet.
 

How This "Nice Guy" Steals Women from Jerks

Did you know a woman can be totally UN-ATTRACTED to you...

And she'll still sleep with you?

If you've ever seen a girl go home with some asshole she didn't even LIKE, you know this is true.

But how is this possible?

Because deep inside her brain, sexual desire has nothing to do with what you LOOK like...

And everything to do with how you make her FEEL.

Matt Cook knows this all too well.

Matt is a nice guy... but he steals women from JERKS all the time.

In this free video training below, he'll show you how he does it:

You are a creepy Russian but I agree with you on this. Catholicism is nothing more than corruption of Christianity. State-sponsored control.
