I was told, just recently, that blogging was probably not a good idea for me but since I already started that I really shouldn't stop. That PISSED me off. Why? I did not start blogging to gain power or to showcase any talents or because of my Leo-ego. I started blogging to gain the input of people smarted than me and more experienced in the ceremonial magick arena. It's kinda difficult to get information from some orders, especially if one is not an initiate, so I felt the blogosphere would be a good venue to use as a sounding board. If a reader gains insight from my posts or finds entertainment in my writing, then GREAT. Love it!
Someone has also made the comment that the blog opens me up to the politics of the various groups within the ceremonial magick arena. That also PISSED me off. Why? Because I hate politics, and all drama for the matter. I do not really care who is "disagreeing" with who or about what. Simply put, I want to learn the magick and all of the other shit is just a distraction to what I really want to do. My intentions are truly and sincerely for learning. If I can write it down in a post, I can say that I worked on that particular concept, found the relevant associations within my own life and progressed further in the Work. My posts may not be grandiose epiphanies or a showcase of scholarly knowledge of the various rites or fanciful prose full of visualizations but IT IS ALL ME. It truly hurt me that someone would imply that my posts could spur politics and drama because I believe my intentions and my actions are pretty clear-cut. I AM EAGER AND WILLING TO LEARN.
So I will continue to blog, make notes of any comments (which are always appreciated), read the other blogs, filter all of the bullshit and make my OWN decision on the truth with a little help with whatever Light is given to me, regardless of who or what blogo-issue might be blocking it.
Thank you kind reader for your continued input and support!
