I'm a 52 year (young) guy with a strong Christian upbringing. I have been looking into GD and Qabalah for some time apon hering rumers that my dad was involved in a similar order. I'm just on my own reading books by S. L. MacGregor, Israel Regardi and Chic & Sandra Cicero. Alister Crowly is to hard to undrestand so i will leave him until later, or maybe never. This all started as of a study in comperitive Theology then i decovered that my family had been practising magic all my life but did not call it that. I have become disgusted with the mainstream church in America. I sreved 10 years in the US Navy and was exposed to many diferant cultures and lifestyles. I have lerned that love and tolarance of others is not just a good idea it is the only sane way to be. My temple is the world of nature (mostly outdoors). My cat (Perrmy El al) and I live in the Rockys and like summer best. we have been practising richual magic for some time even though i did not know it was richual magic when i was growing up and i have had some sucess.
