Association, Spheres, Midgard

My recent meditations have drawn me to this idea of association and relationship. Or correspondence.

I have begun to consider this phenomenon more, and the phrase "as above, so below".

And I am beginning to realize that this interaction is much closer than you might think, or I think for that matter.

But "close" is relative. I will attempt to elaborate here.

I would suggest that all of this understanding and practice should be viewed as a skill.

Imagine your mental…

New Project: Esoteric Music Playlists; Start with the Element Fire

Random idea that seemed interesting. I like making music playlists, and those posts seem to get a lot of views. So I thought I would elaborate on that process.

How about the music and songs chosen were related to some esoteric fundamental?…

Signal to Noise V: The Magician

Decision. One could say that "wisdom" is the result of a lot of decisions.

If you have ever had experience to meet or interact with an old farmer.

Like true old school, Clint Eastwood type of guy, what you realize is first they have seen it all and the wind does not sway them as easily as it does others.

This wealth of experience gives them confidence in character and action.

Because they understand what has worked in the past, and what has failed.

Wisdom, it's not just…

Belief and the Unsaid

I heard this spoken today:

"Believe nothing of what you hear, and only half of what you see".

The comment sparked my attention, and this post.

It's Edgar Allen Poe, and note that these words were spoken by the "nominal head of the institution" in the mind of the author. Context...

Signal to Noise IV; The Story within the Story

So this idea maybe a stretch, or maybe there's already a defined practice, I don't know so I will write.

I had some vacation time recently, and I spent a lot of it drinking beer, listening to music, and watching water flow over rock.

A lot of thoughts occurred in my mind of course, and I let them appear and I went with the flow.

The odd thing that did happen in these series of thoughts, was that I would end up somewhere, some odd subject or place in time (past and…

Work in the Light, Not in the Dark

Lets define these terms under this context. "Dark" can be associated with emotional chaos.

It's dark because the operator can only perceive that which is noisy input.

There will always be "external" circumstances that are experienced.

When those experiences become the only landscape of personal perception, then we have the "Dark".

Usually these circumstances will foster and grow internal emotions that drive personal decisions.

To transmute this "dark" scenario, we must…

Magick, Ships, Groundskeepers

If I am to believe that I am a magickal being, that my thoughts and thus actions can create and shape the universe around me, then I must also accept that other individuals are capable of the same process.

Whether it be through conscious will, or unconscious will. Will remains. Both in me and in others.

This paradox then becomes the landscape of which I operate in.

Now if I truly accept this, I have both realized non-traditional, environmental circumstances and also placed…

Extremes, Sparks, and Music

Perhaps its in these extremities of spectrum that can lead use to something more.

Something higher.

If one is to meditate on nature itself, I would see the changing of the seasons and the beauty it brings along with all of the small, subtle changes that occur in the ecosystems, the relationships/associations.

Chaos in silence.

If we look within, we see this mirrored to some degree. The pain of loss, the joy of the new. Habit, effort, and form.

If we are intent on…

Signal to Noise III

Quick blog here. I wanted to get this down on "paper", before it left me.

Also to get continue the momentum of this thought process on signal and noise.



Someone said to me that emotions are like a radar.

Now if I was to take that same idea and apply it to daily life, I can see that repeated patterns of experience bringing the same flavor of emotion to be a true target or point of interest.

I would also compare this to other, resonant emotions.

Wherein the… Continue

Signal to Noise II

Signs surround you, there is something to learn.

Emotions can provide a hint, but there is nothing definite.

It's more like "look here". But most of the time we rationalize the emotional signal as "good" or "bad.

When in all actuality it's neither. It's simply a sense of change in the environment that eludes us rationally.

Each signal must not be placed out of context though. But those that are repeated, one must address.

Especially if the individuals viewpoint is very… Continue

So in this series I am attempting to understand the dichotomy that lays before me.

Through this excerise, it is my hope, to bring balance to my life.



I had before stated my definition of "signal" as true will.

Recently I was reminded of the concept of that when one banishes, one must invoke as well.



It's odd to me that in this process we tend to forget the underlaying motivators for these actions.



We have become mesmorized by the noise, even thought it… Continue

Signal to Noise

This something that will need further exploration, but I will be short in this post.

If one is to consider the "signal" as true, authentic will, then one would say that everything else is noise.

That's easy, but I feel that the relationship is much more subtle along the spectrum.

It's the "noise" that provide valuable insights to uncovered the "true will".

Not directly, but if it's close enough to home, to the signal, it can be vital benefit.

It's dichotomy, as…
