>>32548500I got the latest version of your Christosphy entry in my OP, right Christanon?
>>32548574Yup, good job on that as i totally forgot about lol
>>32548429Here's the thing, it wasn't a dream dream. All those cases were thoughts, almost like memories, that I got just as i woke up. In the case of the "I am God" it was a visual memory, but I have aphantasia, I can't visually mentalize anything.
>>32548574Imagine having a ball of piss over your head, dressing with faggy clothes and sitting in a gay ass pink flower while having two retards dancing nude in front of you while you watch how I fuck your favorite dakini using a tantra as condom
>>32548669Sounds pretty based to me
>>32548669yeah I'm thinking BASED
>>32548669God I wish that was me
>>32548669Yep that's based and redpilled
>>32548669The post that saved /omg/
>>32548669Put me on the screencap
>>32548500What's so musty about Agrippa? Is it a meme?I am reading it right now, and it's a bunch of lists.Sun: The brains, the right eye and the femur.Mercury: The hands and the feet.And so on and so forth. Does it get better?I can see the value from a historical perspective. But it's kinda boring read.I really liked the early chapters where it went about more conceptual stuff about the elements. But the moment it started talking about where to put the owls heart in order for your girlfriend to tell you the truth, it lost me.
>>32548669Ngl you need a tantric dick to use a piece of paper as condom. Aghori/10
Hello, I am interested in balancing the burdens assigned to people in this world.I am being harassed by immaterial beings who have caused me to see things on the walls and replay messages from inside my head that I do not want to hear. Speaking through mediums and using the air to contact and hurt me. There is more to what most of us can see and unfortunately I have been given sight, and targeted for it.I want to transfer my demons to somebody I know, who deserves it. Then I want to use my vessel to spread peace, and be rid of my anger. How can I make the demonic transfer happen? How can I make someone else carry my burden?
>>32549043How do you know who deserves what?The operation you want to carry out involves getting a massive amount of karma. How do to intend to deal with that?
>>32549116You're implying that it's possible, regardless of whether it's right or wrong. I think somebody should share my pain, I want this person to suffer with me. I want this person to carry it. Are you implying there will be payback for these actions?I also don't believe in karma because it implies that the universe works on an interface friendly and understandable to humans, but I find it seems nonchalant, although I may be wrong.
>>32549007Yeah it's definately a classic of european occultism. Basically a summary of a lot of it. There tons of later textbooks of magic written that heavily reference it. Also a lot of the parts of missing keys, so just reading it as a newbie you won't understand a lot of it. But in a similar vein, you wouldn't understand a random engineering textbook either, unless you worked with it daily.
>>32549290Why wouldn't it be possible?Your understanding of karma is underwhelming.Before this person deserved "it," and you knew it. Now you want this person to "suffer with you". Your rationale is kinda leaky.Why do you think you would be better off involving someone else in your pain rather than making your demons go away?

>>32549354Have you read it? Could you recommend some highlights of the book?Like I find some bits that are brilliant, and then a list...I am also reading a pdf from a Renaissance book, so there is no formatting, which makes it hard to parse.
If the occult was real why y'all niggas live in whatever shithole you live in and didn't use your powers to move to heaven on Earth aka Japan

I'm Greek and I wanna get into hellenic paganism and esotericism. I'd prefer something traditional and non-modern. Can someone help me out?
>>32549523So? Still the best country on Earth?
There are only 5 videos on basic magick 101 shit you need to accomplish the Quranic Body of the Masters of Ancient Wisdom:1. The SECRET GOD the CHURCH DOESN'T Want YOU TO KNOW ABOUT by MorgueOfficial2. How to Be an Advanced Occultist by Daat Darling3. Advanced Beating Off for Chaotes4. Beyond Quantum Consciousness by Deepak Chopra5. Every Time We Touch — Nightcore Version
>>32549480Dude it's not a long read. Some of the parts are extremely useful and potent, but they are described only obscurely, while other parts are plain and easy. So read the whole thing, and comprehend what you can, and each time you read it you will learn more, especially as you fill in the gaps in your understanding with outside learning.
>>32549410>>32549290Ah yes clear signs of emotions dominating the intellect. Which is a good way to make bad decisions.
>>32549535An Albanian will help you with this lolFirst of all, any reason you don't want to just get into Christian Esotericism?Second, do you want to get into the Neoplatonic or the """Original""" (For lack of a better term) kind? (Neoplatonism is the Platonism developed in Late Antiquity and had a ritual component called Theurgy which we don't know much about)
>>32549535You're in luck. This is one of the better documented pagan traditions. Read the Greek Magical Papyri. Also Techniques of Graeco-Egyptian Magic by Skinner. Agree or disagree with his methodology, he makes things highly workable
>>32549590>Dude it's not a long read.Are we talking about the same book?The one I have is 370 pages, with no formatting. No paragraphs. Just a wall of text. That makes it hard to figure out where a list stops and some more theory starts.I am also going in hard mode and reading it in Latin.>>32549535I guess the Corpus Hermeticum... and then Renaissance stuff that people wrote after rediscovering that one. Now, I would call these last ones modern. But people don't register Renaissance as modern.Then there is the Greek Magical Papyrii. But I've not gone over that.
>>32549646Yes same book. That's not a long read for something so foundational. >I am also going in hard mode and reading it in Latin.Making it a lot harder on yourself. Read it in English so you understand it. Then if you want to clarify something you can look at commentaries. It's okay to skip over stuff you don't understand, because a lot of the knowledge is self-contained. Also a lot of the knowledge requires certain keys - one of them being professional tier knowledge of astrology.
>>32549646>370 pagesShould be 1-2 days of reading.

>>32548500I have brain damage right now what healing magick can I do on myself that will heal mr
>>32549646>370 pagesYou can do that in one week if you read a little more than 50 pages per day
>>32549668You made it a lot easier on yourself.If I really want to read a book, I read the book not someone else's interpretation of the book.>Also a lot of the knowledge requires certain keys - one of them being professional tier knowledge of astrology.So after reading lists and more lists of every single thing under the stars (from the roots of plants to the wings of birds) classified into every single thing on the stars... You are telling me: I will not get professional tier knowledge of astrology?>>32549683Well, your Latin is a lot better than mine.
>>32549535see>>32549625 and >>32549688 and add in something like Brill's "Greek Sacred Law" which gives ritual'temple protocols or "Where Dreams May Come" which is about dream incubation.
>>32549734OK but then you are reading your own interpretation of the book, rather than a professionals interpretation of the book. No one who knows what their doing is getting caught up on Agrippa because they didn't read it in latin. It is perfectly understandable in English.
>>32549734>You are telling me: I will not get professional tier knowledge of astrology?No of course not. That requires at least hundreds of hours of study and practice. And it is one of the keys to successfully understand and use Agrippa's book. Among other keys.Some people aren't cut out for the path, because it has to be a labor of love.
>>32549734The material is to give you a register of correspondences so you can construct rites on your own."Oh, this person has problem A, which means I can use planet X, and incense Y, and images/altarspace to address the problem."
>>32549773*pees in your realm*
>>32549773I absolutely see the value of this.But I would love to know where the juicier bits are. And then reference the book where I need it.>>32549757No. I am reading the book and forming my own interpretation on top of that.You are reading an interpretation by professional interpretators, and then forming your interpretation on top of the interpretation of the book.And given I can read Latin quite well... I will keep reading on Latin.The main issue is not the language. Its the fucking formatting of books formatted when paper was a luxury. Just a wall of text. No paragraphs.
>>32549609I want something less ascetic and more heroic and vitalistic.>>32549625>>32549646Is there anything non-syncretic written down?About the Eleusinian Mysteries for examples.I want to talk to the gods like Hellenes communicate with them in the Iliad.>>32549688Thank you>>32549735Thanks m8
>>32549511>>32549543Japs hate foreigners with a passion, you will never be Japanese.
>>32549861No one who knows what their doing is getting hung up on the fact they are reading it in English rather than Latin. And you thinking that shows more about how much you don't understand what you're reading, than it shows off your superior language skills.First you said it to brag about how hard it was, and now you're saying it's easy for you to read Latin. You don't seem cut out for practical applications.Enjoy the armchair, it's a good read.
>>32549883>I want something less ascetic and more heroic and vitalistic.Asceticism is only a part of the tradition, what about Christian love-mysticism? That's very heroic.
>>32548500Vajranon what are your experiences with dream/sleep yoga?
>>32549906The arm chair is well enjoyed. Thank you for your good wishes, and please understand I wish you very well.I am not hung up on the language. Someone said that I was not properly understanding due to the language here:>>32549757Not true. I understand Latin fine.Now. I have to grant you. I was a little showy. And thanks for checking me on that.Now, it's easier for me to read English. But I want to keep honing my Latin. That's why I read that book.As for how well I am cut for practical applications... Yeah, I do not think I am really cut for Astrology. I am more into the whole metaphysics of the issues and meditation.Which kinda sucks, because I see that my lack of Astrological knowledge is dragging me dawn.
>>32549895So? Can't use your powers to make they like you or at least leave you alone? Nope because they're fake
>>32550067you do youyou'll figure out what is good for you
>>32548072I used to think I was a normalfag before learning more about "occult", but I then learned that an alarming plethora of "occultists" are in fact normalfags that I still, somehow, have little in common with.I wish everyone would just read ancient philosophers and stop talking about sports, pussy, drugs and other normalfag shit long enough for me to get off this ride.>>32549625Thanks, anon. Though I'm not the anon you were (You)ing here, could you tell me if this book is worth saving for later?
>>32549625>>32550586Oops forgot image.
>>32550620Are you showing us the script for some kind of dnd campaign of yours?
>>32550631Nah, it’s a reply to another thread about the ai grimoire
>>32550586>sports, pussy, drugs and other normalfag shitI don't see the issue with any of those, everything in moderation.
>>32550779That's great, anon. I feel the exact same way.It's also kind of the point here.
>>32550779Some of the fellows around here come up with mystical reasons to justify their personal failings. The ability to engage with and relate to normal people rises in proportion with attainment.This breed of person shuts themselves up at the top of their tower, thinking themselves too clever for the world. You see the same thing with academic leftists that claim to exhibit class consciousness but can't hold a conversation with regular working class folk. These are just the maladjusted young men who found occultism instead of Marx.https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/crowley/lies/30.htm
>>32550862I hadn't read that for years, and I did, and now I have a few thousand words of thoughts on it. This loops back to what I was saying privately about Crowley focusing on the wrong -issimus. Like, all at the same time, he's right, and correct, and he betrays himself, and he's completely wrong. "Breaks, Falsely Called" indeed.
>>32550862>The ability to engage with and relate to normal people rises in proportion with attainment.I know it personally, because once I too thought highly of myself and that other people were just too dumb for me to engane in a conversation with them. After I started my practices I'm progressively being able to see the beauty in each individual.>This breed of person shuts themselves up at the top of their towerThe funny thing that I realized that the real master is always around people and even those who enjoy a reclusive life have their own share of connection with other beings I.e. Shiva
>>32550862You can engage with people through banter and cheerful conversation, doesn't have to be "yo I desperately need a girlfriend otherwise my life is incomplete". If you're happy, I don't see a point in forcing interaction because someone on the internet told you to.You have your own path, other paths emphasize different things such as cutting attachment to close ones and eliminating hatred towards strangers.

>>32551031We're clearly not on the same page here. Marxism is allegorical for being bored of normalfags?I must have missed some crucial part of this conversation, because both of you seem like complete retards all of a sudden.This place is very explicitly not supposed to be sports bro let's get drunk and have sex club.Can you please go somewhere else instead of shitting up one of the few places left I can visit to be stimulated?

>>32551007>This is a bit vulgar of you, Pachad.PChud is a jealous loser with a highly bloated ego, who likes to project his own failings onto others, so don't take him to seriously.If you watch closely you will realize about 90% of his posting is either to feed his undeservedly bloated ego, or because he is seething with envy at anothers success.
>>32551058>This place is very explicitly not supposed to be sports bro let's get drunk and have sex club.I mean speak for yourself here, and I'm generally not a big fan of sportsball, with some exceptions, but I like a fine mezcal and the odd seasonal trip to the strip club.
>>32551060I guess I see now why you guys are so militant in building up defenses relating to political talk around here.Maybe I'm being unwise even continuing this conversation, especially considering I find the political dichotomy somehow even more boring than clubbing dugs lust life. Lets just not talk politics anymore and stick to spiritual topics.>>32551076Yeah... see above.
Deity yoga makes you look more similar to the entity, so if I do it with Hercules will I get buff as him?
>>32551106Yeah you may wanna go if you can't relate with people, breh.
>>32551108Only if you put in the work, I guess in an extremely heterodox phrasing, working out is the completion stage of hercules deity yoga.
>>32551116Nah, I still like when you guys talk about things above my head. Like I said, this place is valuable enough for me to set those differences aside. I think I'm just disappointed that the dynamic here wasn't any more complex than I originally gleaned. You're a good guy, Ape. I don't blame you for being caught in the trap. Maybe the only reason I try is because I want you to reach your potential. But it's all good. We don't have to keep doing the dance.
>>32551133I mean I already work out pretty much everyday so I'm just missing on the yoga itself
>>32551145>I think I'm just disappointed that the dynamic here wasn't any more complex than I originally gleanedWhat...makes you think that? Most of us here can say we've read outside our lanes. I've read the Falangist and Integralist manifestos. I think Nick Land was interesting before the bath salts fried his brain.>caught in the trapWhat trap? The reality we exist in? Like what hope is there if you can't view an attractive person like you would a painted-sky sunset? Or a dive-bar as your field of practice?
>>32551154Since there is no hercules tantra (lmao), briefly meditate and visualize yourself as Hercules with his attributes during the workout. That's about the extent of what Herculean deity yoga could be.
>>32551182>lmaoHahahah yeah, totally, it's just ABSURD that Herakles would pop up in the Buddhist canon. Wouldn't that be funny hahaha.Ha.Haaaa.Whoooo.
>>32551188I'm aware of Greco-Buddhist syncreticism but I'm all ears if there is such a thing
>>32551201So do we tell anon to practice Vajrapani or stick with the form of Herakles?

And we are Western Ally and NATO member lmao
>>32551170Sorry, Ape. I'm not interested in the back and forth where we merely reiterate our disagreements.
>>32550032Not much. I just practice as Garchen Rinpoche teaches, where I try to remember the deity's mantra while sleeping and while first waking up. I haven't really self-generated while sleeping or done anything beyond this level though>>32551217Fuck yeah death to the Jewish bourgeoisie brotherhttps://youtu.be/l8H7TTbnNac>>32551237While I'm an unironic egoist-Marxist. We're just a thread full of memes, aren't we?>>32551204>>32551108My gurus teach that Vajrapani is literally Heracles, so yes.

>>32551282>>32551336I don't do much as far as conscious practice, but I've had Dharmapalas appear to shut me down in dream. I have had nightmare adjacent content that was clarified in teaching as my current practice cycle "working" and my root guru pops in up dream from time to time but hasn't been interacting much.I dream very poorly, and all my dream-spiritual context is nakedly Sabbatic, so I haven't self-generated either, or been in a Sadhana/Yoga context in dream yet. I need to break down and get one of Garchen's meditation belts.>>32551344Sure, IJS I feel like I'm in a Marxist reading circle sometimes. Everyone's at least marginally conversant with theory. >>32551356Unironically this. This is why I harp on Westerners leaving Tibetan politics tf alone.
>>32551356His faggotness is a scammer and a conman like every religious figure
>>32551282>Vajrapani is literally HeraclesThank you, I'm not very knowledgeable about Vajrayana so I'd like to ask if I need empowerments before I start doing deity yoga with Vajrapani or the Three Wrathful Ones.
>>32551378>His faggotness is a scammer and a conman like every religious figureShow me in the asiatic body of an adept where he touched you
>>32551372>I need to break down and get one of Garchen's meditation belts.You could try to sleep in the vajrasana/full lotus if you're hardcore, but meditation belts are a helpful aid. If you can't do either, use the Buddha's sleeping lion position.At this point sleep is almost becoming my favorite yogic practice because of the liberties it provides. Instant sexual energy transmutation, instant clear light, meditating inside lucid dreams. Shit's cash bro I highly recommend it.

>>32551404I can/do. It's not the most easy experience given a variety of circumstances and the belt looks like it's actually designed to help beyond the usual ones.>>32551380In terms of orthodox "deep end" practices yes. To my knowledge I don't think it's improper to do yoga/mediation on the image of the godform/with it at your crown. Garchen has empowerments up on YT as per usual but you REALLY should be sure that the Diamond Vehicle and the Lightning Path is something you're committed to before you seek empowerment. As I've said before, once you take the initiation the pact is sealed.
>>32551380It's best to have initiation, as always, but Zasep Tulku Rinpoche has a video on Youtube with a version of Three Wrathful Ones that anyone can practice.>>32551340"[Stirner's] egoism is taken to such a pitch, it is so absurd and at the same time so self-aware, that it cannot maintain itself even for an instant in its one-sidedness, but must immediately change into communism. In the first place it's a simple matter to prove to Stirner that his egoistic man is bound to become communist out of sheer egoism. That's the way to answer the fellow. In the second place he must be told that in its egoism the human heart is of itself, from the very outset, unselfish and self-sacrificing, so that he finally ends up with what he is combating."~Engels, in a letter to Marx on Nov 19, 1844
Can I combine LBRP with suttric practice and is that a good or bad idea?
>>32551282Are there more Buddhist-Greek deity equivalencies like that? Hellenism and Vajrayana both appeal to me and I'd like to combine them. From what Buddhist deities I've read about Tara reminds me of Artemis/Hecate.
>>32551598>>32551637Thank you, I'll do deity yoga without the initiation as I'm not sure that it's the path I should take.>Zasep Tulku Rinpoche has a video on Youtube with a version of Three Wrathful Ones that anyone can practice.I'll look into it, thank you.
>>32551666>Tara reminds me of Artemis/HecateMother has many different forms, Hekate seems to align more with the dark/wrathful ones seen in Buddhism and Hinduism.What's interesting is that several people have divined this connection to me, and Hekate was one of the names mentioned.

>>32555414Why do you say they are pissed off?I don't think they are.Weather magic is extremely common, taught in all sorts of magical traditions all over the world.At it simplest, the mage just makes a prayer to the Sun or Moon or the elements, and sometimes they will oblige the request.

I went to a goma fire ritual and it was awesome. The assistant monk was running around making sure every little thing was perfect while the abbot shouted his chants and knocked shit over because he was so into it.

>>32555948Even if you attempted to name a subject where this isn't the truth, I would simply disregard that opinion.This is an effortless statement; a basic kneejerk reaction because you know where most people take this, which your posting history evinces your inevitable violent reaction to.The Truth is it doesn't matter what these people were like; it doesn't matter where they came; it doesn't matter what they looked like; it doesn't matter what inspired them.What I care about is The Truth. What that Truth is doesn't matter to me.I find the explanation I've outlined to be the most compelling. I wouldn't mind the disagreement, but I know that where this topic leads really seems to trigger people, even here. I won't harp on it.
>>32555981>I would simply disregard that opinion>What I care about is The Truth. What that Truth is doesn't matter to me.That's a great operating model anon. Enjoy the crystallization of your suppositions.
>>32555994The statement means I do not believe you can name a subject that many people chatter about without substance. Loads of people have uninformed opinions without a glimmer of effort to ascertain the consensus or pseudo-consensus of a given topic.Indeed, I care about the truth.

>>32554375Thank you, his wikipedia article seems very interesting.>>32555994ape, since I know you've delved into both the GD and buddhism, do you have some input for this? >>32552778 My main interest and focus is buddhism right now, I'm leaving the door open to get into GD stuff at a later time, but what do you think about incorporating a ritual like the LBRP as supplemental practice to my suttrayana practice? Would this just distract me more than any benefit it might give? I should note that my goal seems to be at the moment to progress into tantrayana so perahps what >>32552844 mentioned is relevant as well.
>>32556040If I really need to put it another way, here:Whatever the Truth is, I want to find it. I will reserve any hang-ups I have about what that entails during my pursuit.I merely believe if everyone was receptive to Truth, we could all progress in our Work much more quickly.Whatever the Truth is, wherever it leads, fine.

>>32556042You're fine. Someone referenced Bennet. Fuckin' Gerald Yorke, Crowley's student, hostile biographer, and AA initiate, was the personal representative to the West for the previous Dalai Lama, and even wrote an introduction to one of the first English translations of the Kalachakra Tantra. I do my HGA ritual before I do Praise to the Lama Vajrasattva. You're fine with the LBRP with MAYBE the caveat that the direction/elemental systems in Vajrayana are pretty far off what you get in the West. You could try reconciling them or maybe just keep your compartmentalization in mind while you're doing both.
Is Merlin a fair depiction of Magick?
>>32556093Thank you. If I may inquire a bit further:I've seen you mention that initiation into the tantras is a p big deal. Which is why I'm set on at least a year of suttric practice and dhamma study before getting into tantrayana.Previously I just asked about incorporating GD rituals as a supplemental practice, but I may or may not be interested in self-initiation into it as well. Would you hold the same degree of importance/commitment to GD/AA initiation as initiation into the tantras? Aside from spreading myself to thin in my studies and practice, would you regard it as generally advisable to seek initiation to both systems? I sure as hell wasn't attaining a state similar to Shivadarshana at the age of 18 so I'm not sure if I'm putting way too much on my plate at that point.
>>32555489Fuck yeah. I've only been to a few fire pujas before but the energy has been intense every time. Hail Agni>>32555793Everyone who doesn't think like Pachad is lying and evil and a pawn of Satan confirmed>>32556230Imo it's best to commit to one system until you have it internalized and workable. Then if you want you can branch out to other practices
>>32556230>hold the same degree of importance/commitment to GD/AA initiation as initiation into the tantras?No, but only SLIGHTLY so and for different reasons. Buddhism is a living Sanga. The AA is half dead and the community function has been de-emphasized to the point of non existence. Self initiation into the AA is the norm, hence Pyramidos. It's important but not because you're being invested with a ripening introduction to mind or an unbroken chain of linage. The important parts are common (actually internalizing the energies of the current) but AA is missing some of the things Tantra has (the communities, the specific doctrines, etc).Do Pyramidos but do it understanding that you're doing something extremely different than Samadhi Empowerment or an Empowerment to a specific practice from a flesh-and-blood Lama.
>>32556249Honestly I can't wait to take the ganacakra section of my empowerment out of the ritual room/temple and out into the abandoned graveyards of the world. But I have many months of tilling the soil in front of me.

genuinely asking and not trolling. are scat pornstars tantric? yeah you might say they dom't have initiation and all that stuff but>broken and trascended the bounds of mind>rejoice in filth>taken pleasure beyond human boundsa lot of them in fact seem to be able to go even beyond scat and rejoice in garbage and other stuff. aren't they arriving more or less to the same state/principle as aghoris except lacking the explanation of esoterical means? I could imagine any of them using their own filth to genuinely worship god if they realized the concept
>>32556530I'm pretty sure someone has asked this exact thing before. And no, indulging in fetishistic behavior is not letting go of aversion. Letting go of aversion does not mean rejoicing and taking pleasure in filth.
>>32556530>using their own filth to genuinely worship godYes but their god is satan. Seeking to destroy and corrupt, all in the name of pleasure.Look into their eyes and see the lack of soul

>>32556530Are they free from attachment?
>>32556689What I understand about their practice is that they are mentally ill people living in misery and neglected by the system and excluded from the mental health and treatment they need and you're just another w*stoid who thinks the grass is greener in the other side of the fence.

Just had my 2nd shamanic dismemberment dream. Both have been partial dismemberments related to two injures I have sustained of the same leg. This time though I dismembered my own leg by chopping off my own foot. At least a week passed in dream time and I then found myself walking through another dream I had already had but without a foot this time. Deja vu hits and bad things were going to happen so I directed the dream characters to avoid the dangers. One of them thanked me by surgically reattaching my foot. My toes were now reordered with smallest toes on the outsides and big toe in the center. It then hit me that I must have been dreaming as I didn't bleed when I cut my own foot off. Didn't make me fully lucid and I shortly woke up before gaining control.I have found a few resources on the spiritual importance of injuries in the life of a practitioner that have been imparted as lessons but don't have much on the shamanic currents. Is there anything not in the folder in the mega that comes to mind for anyone? Preferably in the current of self initiation or initiated directly by the spirits and gods themselves?

Asking this againTf is the deal with lesser pentagram banishing ritual ? It sounds useful but I don't feel like calling for abrahamic forced to aid me. Someone enlighten me pls
>>32557913You're not asking God to help you by using the names. By invoking divine names you are actively taking command of various facets of the world. You may be surprised to find that the world reacts accordingly. Even if you have something against God, you might find it valuable to try the practice as a form of vamacara. Ironically, it's more left hand path to use the names of a God you disagree with - therefore breaking your personal tabu - than it is to invoke the name of Satan or some demon.
>>32557976But if I use angelic names I won't be dark and become a living god>inb4 "demonic" lbrp using goetic spirits instead of the archangels
>>32557983>>32557913I think /succgen/ may be more your speed, anon.
>>32557983I did once post an averse pentagram ritual here, years ago. It was a dumb idea desu, but the basic idea was to call upon the four infernal spirits from Agrippa. I'm not sure if at the time I actually knew that they were principle spirits in the Dragon Book of Essex. Though it is possible I was already aware. The main flaw with my rite was the lack of divine names. There are only a few figures I can think of that really serve a function of Atziluthic authority while also being arguably infernal.
>>32557976Interesting answer thanks. I thought that asking hebraic names of god for protection would be the same as submitting to their egregore/god etc. But I do see your point now.

This has led to so much confusion of thought that THE BEAST 666 has preferred to let names stand as they are, and to proclaim simply that AIWAZ, the solar-phallic-hermetic 'Lucifer,' is His own Holy Guardian Angel, and 'The Devil' SATAN or HADIT, the Supreme Soul behind RA-HOOR-KHUIT the Sun, the Lord of our particular unit of the Starry Universe. This serpent, SATAN, is not the enemy of Man, but He who made Gods of our race, knowing Good and Evil; He bade 'Know Thyself!' and taught Initiation. He is 'the Devil' of the Book of Thoth, and His emblem is BAPHOMET, the Androgyne who is the hieroglyph of arcane perfection.>>32558875The quote above aside, I have found that The Devil between Hod and Tifereth poses the intellectual traps that one is likely to fall for if attempting to cross the veil from there, as opposed to from Netzach.

>>325593135e, somewhat silly campaign but the DM is a literal brain genius who I have immense respect for (remember me saying me and a buddy would set up bottles to knock down from a distance? That's him, he's got a triple degree: math, physics, and philosophy he's legit the highest IQ person I know) so I don't mind so much. Right now we're all riding on a polymorphed mammoth hauling a traincar of injured civilians while we're getting chased by what are essentially the motherfuckers from The Thing.
>>32559328But how?>>32559350>you need to let emotions arise and die naturally as they are.How do I do so?
>>32559358>but how?By reading what the Stoics said.
>>32559358>How do I do so?Meditation
>>32559358>How do I do so?Vipassana meditation. The point of to view reality (as in your phenomenological moment to moment experience) for what it truly is without judgement or conceptual baggage. By doing so you free yourself from the chains of attachment and aversion to not just your emotions, but your thoughts and physical feelings as well. You aim to attain right view which will reveal among other things, that all phenomena is impermanent, which will free you from suffering.
>>32559356>>32559313FYI I prefer to play 2.5e, the blackcover stuff. I'll take 5 over 3.x.I'd truly prefer to be playing Cthulhu Invictus, Delta Green, or Fading Suns.
>>32559367Will read>>32559376>>32559384How do I do vipassana?
>>32559419>How do I do vipassana?There's countless of videos on youtube from monks, the specific technique may vary, but the theme should be the same. I myself do it in the form that this monk teaches it, where you label your main experiential focal point with a word over and over again.https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL603BD0B03E12F5A1
>>32559356>>32559400sounds like a great time tb.h cut my teeth on 2e, kinda collect 1e. 3.x was fun with the old gang, but i still like 2.x the best. Delta looked cool but never got to play it, most of the friends i used to game with didn't do a lot of branching out even when i bought a copy of CoC 6. I still like to write adventure content and worldbuild for fun sometimes though.
>>32559487May the Dhamma bring you closer to fulfillment and liberation, anon.
Looking to get into sufism. Any recommendations?
I need recs for prayers for when I'm feeling grateful and loving towards the One anons.
Freezing, we do not scheme. Starving, we do not beg. Dying of poverty, we ask for nothing. According with conditions, we do not change, Not changing, we accord with conditions. We adhere firmly to our three great principles. We renounce our lives to do the Buddha's work. We take responsibility to mould our destiny. We rectify our lives to fulfill the Sanghan's role. We carry on the single pulse of the Patriarch's mind transmission.
>>32548500Question: I see in Ape's Library there is a statement about /pol/ ... was this due to the library missing many texts acknowledging jewish influence of nearly all occultism in Europe especially after the 1500s OR was this because of actual spergs who were complaining about their feelings? If its the prior, please let me know, I dont really want to waste time on a dead-end book.
>>32559325Listen to death metal for 6 hours a day while being an alcoholic mathematician. This will blunt your emotions. I recommend the song "flattening of emotions" by Death.In more seriousness though, the goal of western medieval health was to attain balance of the four elements, rather than to mute one of them that is problematic.
>>32559033Your drawing I take ? If so, nice
>>32559606Make a list of things you're grateful for, like Aurelius' Meditations.
Had a schizo tier relization earlierMost weaker/smaller demons are blind and depend on their host's interpretation/impression of the world to percieve and influence said perception negatively.What's your take on this ?
>>32559872This place is not about or for conspiracy theories. If you think a secret cabal of people is the reason your life and the world is fucked, you're ngmi. As far as the other part, no one here has problems with acknowledging the influence of Jewish mysticism in the west, there's plenty of books about kabalah in the library. That said, most people here are heavily biased against /pol/ (myself included) so talk like a /pol/tard and you will get made fun of.
>>32559961Probably true, especially in the sense that it's applied to thoughtforms.
>>32559980how many vaccines did you getcause if it's more than zero, youre NGMI
That's where you're wrong retard
>>32559998AIDS has a 70% death rate in 10 yearsSay your prayers and do your time on the pillow while you can
>>32559872Unless you can put aside your politics, you won't realize the practical insights that stand before you. Frankly, if you have hang-ups like this, you probably won't last long around here.With that being said, Ape himself said recently that many anons around here lean heavily left. You can accept that and set that aside while you continue to learn, or you can stop here, get off the ride and go back to normieville.You don't have to agree with everything people say or think here, but if you're too busy being polarized by consensus cracking and well-poisoning from other boards, you're probably just wasting your time.Say what you will about people with large facial features; what they have and do works.
>>32560031Political beliefs have zero bearing on success in occult and spiritual endeavorsThere are tons of advanced spiritual teachers on both sides of the spectrumLefties can have just as many mental blinds as Righties.
>>32560070Yes.And if you focus too hard on this subject, you won't have enough time to practice it what you would otherwise be learning.
