Thought, Action, Building Inner Bridges

There arises a need, a desire, a lust for change.This feeling is being offered and accepted (or discarded) producing the motivation for construction.You run through different scenarios or possibilities of how this change would look and/or feel, but it's still imaginary (definitely not trying to downplay this part of the process, but the thought is not fully realized in the possibility of the material yet).Now the desire, the attraction to the thought now, builds until there is no other option,…See More

How Long Does It Take

Author: Mark StavishTaken from VOXHERMES, the blog of the Institute for Hermetic Studies.Blog link: https://voxhermes.wordpress.com/2019/07/03/how-long-does-it-take/Excerpt: “Essentially, from the general point of view, particularly, from the intellectual viewpoint, the most important thing is the capacity of attention and concentration, it is that which one must work at and develop. From the point of view of acting…See More

Thoughts on Silence

I believe this aspect is mis-understood, and I don't think that it's limited to esoteric practices.Fundamentally, it's related to the mind and nature, I believe.If this is true, its applicable to any field or endeavor.Take training for example. Consider this in a professional/corporate environment.Those who are usually selected to train "new hires" are usually those with the most experience in said vocation.Why? Because through experience and performance, the trainer has demonstrated that the…See More

Gates, Arches, Flow

Imagine that you are a gate.Lots of thoughts and experiences pass through you.Some of these passerby's are of your own volition, some not.Yet they still pass through.I am beginning to think that "we" tend to create complexity and separation in fear of dealing with what's within.It can be considered right brain logical thinking, but now this hemisphere of sparks has produced a place for emotion and irrational action to arise and flourish.Perhaps the gate has been taken away.Perhaps the gate was…See More

I am Ego, I am Possession

I wonder about possession. If I am possessed, then I am consumed.Utterly infatuated and immersed.Now you are probably thinking about demons at this point (or perhaps not), but also consider a violinist playing/performing Vivaldi.Or consider lovers in the thrall of sexual interaction.Or perhaps a surfer that becomes one with the wave.These experiences can be considered "possession", but also single mindedness.But not single mindedness in the form of one thought.Perhaps it's the complete…See More

Negative Growths and Thought Fertilizer

So there's a couple of thing coalescing here, and I'd thought I would share :-)Thinking in terms of nature, and thoughtforms, there is growth. Always growth.The practical application of this is to feed that which you feel/know is positive for you.The negative growths (important: decision made that the act, decision, situation, or response to such is negative) can be addressed by not feeding them.So one option, after you have studied the negative growth and it's causal/karmic roots/seeds, starve…See More

Love and Fear

Posted on July 18, 2019 at 8:26pm 0 Comments

Love, as best as I can see it, is embrace.

These are just words, and these string of characters can be interpreted in different ways.

But words are limited, frankly.

This is why myth and storytelling is so important.

I'll take a page from Martin Faulks lectures on memory and say that for a concept to truly be absorbed, or made one's own, it needs to have depth and width.

Depth/width of experience and/or repetition (there's more branches to hold onto).

So this…

Toxic Feminine and Apology

Posted on July 14, 2019 at 4:47pm 1 Comment

Getting all "tyrannical" here.

I see articles addressing "toxic masculinity", and while these do offer some substance (consider the sources), I would also like to bring to the table the idea of "toxic feminism".

If we speak of one aspect, we must consider the opposing aspect of that subject.

While as a Man (male sex characterized by physical attributes and general mindset produced by society's observation of these attributes), I accept the fact that men have done terrible this…

I've had this meme in my "Celebrity" file for months and not known where to post it. I think you'll like it. We have to understand though that very few are either just part of the problem or just part of the solution. Black and white do not shine that brightly when kindness creeps in to relatively bleak scenarios. We need not support a myth that stunts anybody's will to improve their lot from whatever glue they may be stuck in as dealt. Thanks for all the posts. Breathe and laugh!
