[quote=“charles9, post:10, topic:7386”][quote=“succupedia, post:7, topic:7386”]That is pretty ignorant and a very egotistical point of view, don’t you think? It’s like throwing a baby pig to a pack of hyenas. We know the outcome and that the baby pig will get eaten in the most brutal ways we could ever imagine. That was the result of it, being out in the open and the hyenas couldn’t respect the boundaries. It might be a very out-of-the-context analogy, but it’s not that far away from how you put it in your post, is it?
So the biggest responsibilities lies in the hand of the one who shares the experience, rather than the one’s that receives it?
I mean it can be great to get some kind of validation from your experiences, as long as it’s within mutual agreement. Even if the validation exceeds the information from the first party - i.e the one who shares the experience - it might be wise to not share everything that comes up, or atlest not share everything too clearly. That’s because personal interpretations might cause conflict with the new “information” that doesn’t fit the experience. But if it’s put out there firmly with suggestion of how to proceed, then the new information gets a positive value to work with.[/quote]Not at all. Hyenas have to eat too, same as maggots. And if your point is. Don’t tell others what to do? i don’t. Don’t get into others business? i don’t care enough about them to try. And as far as responsibilities go? I can show someone how to use a gun, but its all up to them if they shoot themselves in the head with it or use it to kill 30 people. I was referring to the fact that if your out in the so called 'real world" and are open about your experiences, you will be attacked for it from every angle, especially if someone is making a career out of the occult. And if that had nothing to do with this topic then that’s my mistake and that’s why i asked for clarification on it. excuse me if I was out of line and please forgive me(you don’t really have to). NOW the dancing devil in my mind wants me to point out that trying to make others follow a blind sanctimonious morality is just as much a violation of freedom as anything being said here…We will follow the rules of this forum at all times. And we will never make anyone drink our Kool aid, no they will happily do that on their own;)[/quote]
The point was that just because some magicians choose to have no boundaries, or outright violate the boundaries of other, does not mean the ones getting violated have to sit back and take it simply because the opinion of “jungle law” is considered valid by the aggressors. They will be treated accordingly. Yes, you have a point in that by publickly expressing views it opens it to publick commentary, and being a magician is largely related to dealing with the dissonance in society that creates…
However, the point is more that say if I shared something personal to a person or people I confide in, and then they took it and ran off on their own crusade, or inserted their own interpretation and presented it as fact in my life and tried to force it back on me, that is a boundary violation. Each person sets their boundaries, but if cancer spreads you cut it out… You dont become “mad” at the cancer for acting in its nature…you simply have an understanding on not allowing it in or removing it once it proves to be cancer.
It just seems that some people here make a habit of inserting themselves into things in other people’s lives in a way that is fallacious and intrusive. It is up to each person to set their own boundaries…and enforce them, especially if the other party won’t…
People having free will, and all, are of course free to keep pushing boundaries…but they have no room to complain when they get energetically and magickally smacked and shoved to an outer ring of existance in the person’s life they continued to violate.
