My name is John. While I’ve studied magic & religions for some time now, I have little to no experience with applications of it. For me it’s more of a curiosity than anything. And, while I am sceptical of much of it, I recognize the psychological effects that certain practices may have on individuals. However, I’ve seen no verifiable evidence to warrant any solid confidence in it. Yet, I am open to much.
I don’t see myself practicing, save for one particular goal… And if it is met, would not practice any further.
While I respect that it is a spiritual & very personal path & journey for some, for me & my concerns it would simply be a means to an end.
My concerns & interest are primarily with the mind, & human psychology. As far as my own personal spiritual path, it is Buddhism, of which I have been practicing for 6 yrs now. I know that there is a great deal of difference between the philosophies of the magician & a Buddhist, but I’m not here to prioritize anyone (nor would any practicing Buddhist). I believe in “different strokes for different folks” & that one’s own spiritual journey & development should be & is a deeply personal one.
I look forward to reading others post & getting to meet & know each of you (even if just a little).
