Just a third party here, wishing to shed some impartial perspective upon this increasingly rabid discussion. Has anybody else noticed that the most condescending comments come from those obviously most insecure? It's interesting, Walter Five, how you find it necessary to use such insulting exclamations toward anyone who disagrees with you, all the while maintaining such a condescending and sarcastic tone. And to add insult to ignorance, you end it with a jovial "have a nice day." Your intellectual "superiority" complex here is just a little bit obvious, don't you think? I'm just saying... I get the impression from your tone that there are some genuine insecurities being compensated for.
Besides, the salad bar approach to spirituality, all of the miscellaneous sources being quoted, confirms nothing much other than the fact that a lot of people on this website have way too much time on their hands. Sounds like desperate grasping at straws to me. At least on a superficial reading, the smorgasbord of archaic sources appears to be leading some of you in proverbial circles. I mean-you're all obviously picking and choosing what sources to ascribe the most credence to based upon your own philosophical biases and preferences anyways, then insulting others who by their presence threaten your pathetic house of cards. Could this be because most of you are grasping at anything that will substantiate what you're already prone to believe from the start?
Why is it that while talking about harmony and enlightenment, many of you esotericists seem to be either exerting a great deal of energy to conceal some deep seated animosity or are mulishly and openly spewing verbal hatred, especially towards anyone who speaks from a position of authority, or who dares to disagree with you. If it's all so subjective, what does it all matter anyway? If all of your desperate attempts to prove your own intellectual superiority are really substantiated by some kind of higher evolved spirituality, than why are you so desperately struggling to hold on to it?
I feel so sorry for you who've become enslaved in that cycle. The same spiritual bondage has tormented human beings for millennia. Yet every generation has its share of charlatans for the same regurgitated garbage. My advice-open your mind and get out of the vicious cycle. Even if you pursue occult knowledge to your death bed (which perhaps could be tomorrow) it will ultimately betray you. You're on a path to nowhere, except ever increasing subjectivity and obscurity. If you wish to obstinately persist defending your pagan exercise in futility with frivolous arguments, suit yourself, just don't claim nobody told you. The writings all over the wall, your ignorance is your own choice.
