Esoteric Online

   I have unfolded in many ways, and it is through the unfolding process that I have discovered many great truths about myself. The path of knowledge is the path I walk, I do not wish to conceal my knowledge. I realize with some discomfort that the knowledge I already have, and that which is yet to come will often go unnoticed. Furthermore, I feel isolated knowing that in most social situations it is awkward to discuss such topics as hermeticism, religion, metaphysics or symbolism.

   The following is my own Inner struggle, battle or strife of self. I have always been a deep thinking person. Accompany to this insight comes a great demand for obtaining knowledge. In such endeavours as independent learning I excel. I don't wish to have a formal education in a college or university. There seems to be many distractions and dictation involved in traditional schooling. I also believe free and open-minded learning suits me personally much better. I am my own teacher, friend and ally.

   The light I have always sought is here within me and always has been. I realize my own spiritual nature and understand the importance of my existence. That is what keeps me going when I feel trapped in my own struggles.

I totally resonant with this.  I also mirror this in my life.  

Truly you are a Spirit having a Human experience, always remember this.  You are larger than you seem.  While your path may "often go unnoticed" it is not worthless or un-enriching.  

I reluctantly went through the formal schooling and graduated with a BS (yes it DOES stand for bullshit).  I can tell you that I did learn some useful things but "traditional schooling" is really a form of brainwashing into parroting and NOT free thinking.  There may be rare exceptions to this but really when, in the 1930's, we abandoned "Classical Education" in the form of the Trivium and the Quadrivium; we stopped promoting Critical Thinking.  I can also tell you that your GPA dosen't really count, except in large amounts.  Really they only care if you did or did not graduate on the job application.  Waste of my time and money.  I taught myself my work as a Computer Doctor, schooling did nothing to help in that.  It actually took away from my career many years and hours.  I continue to read and research MY OWN topics such as are covered at EO.  The enjoyment I get from such is my driving force.  I really don't have much interest in else.  

Truly the school is the world.  Lessons can be learned anywhere.

Thank you for the reply,

I appreciate it deeply. I've found that this website is a good context in which to grow and advance my current understandings. It is where I feel most comfortable in an online group setting. I've noticed that there is a light atmosphere most times when I'm here. People are friendly and have genuine care for each other. It is great to be understood and here, I do feel understood by many. 
Blessings, 

A. White

Correction:

'Just Awakened'. I left out a word  meaning  even if they are 'just newly awakened'.

I know what you are saying.

When I found this site I felt at last some people who know what I'm talking about.

It's relaxing to have this site to come to and stimulating because there are some very bright people here who basically know what they are talking about as well as Seekers here who are actually 'seeking' for the Truth of the Universe even if they have awakened.

God Bless us all.
