It's Funny How the Universe Works

I have been having some real issues lately and over the course of 48 hours I got the much needed solution framework to my dilemmas

I have had a couple of very significant conversations with some very magickal people, in which, a robust solution has been laid out for me. The conversation in one case was very specific but in other situations, just gave me very good ideas and inspiration of how to deal with my dilemmas. New ways of looking at both the problem and the solution were given to me. It was like the universe way laying out the puzzle pieces for me to put together or the tracks for a train.

What made the conversations very unusual was that they were completely out of the blue and unplanned. I had to be in the right place at the right time to receive these messages and since the timing of any situation in my life can be quite challenging, the opportunity was quite extraordinary.

This all came at a time when I was having some reservations of the Path I have chosen. I have been asking myself, "Am I being hoodwinked?"

You know, the term 'being hoodwinked' comes from Freemasonry (but the concept is older). A hoodwink is put on the canditate, before he's initiated and takes his oath, so that if he refuses the oath he can be escorted out of the temple without having seen the mysteries.

If you feel like you're being hoodwinked on your path, it may be that you're being guided to initiation, especially if the magickal folks and spirits you're working with are ones you trust. Another point of the hoodwink in Freemasonry is that you have to trust the man who's guiding you around, and that everyone who's in the temple has walked where you walked, stood where you stood, knelt where you knelt.

Is that the case with your friends?

My experience with Freemasonry is one of the reasons I like the more established magical orders, like the Golden Dawn. GD is like a University, however. You don't get experience until you get to RR et AC.

WOOT! It is always sublime when the chaos comes together just so and moments of clarity are there for you `;~)

It never hurts to have doubts. I believe doubts keep you searching for answers.

I really like MSR's explanation of the term 'hoodwinked.' It totally makes sense.

Hi Monsignor!
Yes, that is definitely the case with my friends.

...and yes, the GD has been an interest of mine for quite some time now.

I am truly honored you posted. Thank you for your input.

Hi Shelly!

Yes, its cool when things line up like that and I agree about doubt. One should always have some reservations about any endeavour. I believe its a totally natural part of the human experience. Monsignor's point was totally on the mark.
Thanks for your input and support!
