I consider myself pagan. I define it as such: Celebrate the sanctity of Nature, revering the Divine in all things; the vast unknowable Spirit that runs through the Universe, both seen and unseen.
I dont do any rituals, or spells or anything like that. I dont feel comfortable with it. I just like to go outside, sit quietly and observe the wonderful gift of life that surrounds me :)

Posted 20 September 2012 - 10:43 AM

Ganesh Chathuri was quite lovely yesterday . I went early ,so it was much less crowded than last year .
The priests were a bit weirded out by my plushie Ganesh ,but hey,I like plushies .
I want a plushie Kali Ma too,but she's expensive .
I had him blessed ,and I gave him flowers and a coconut .
He loves coconut . So you bring one,and there's a special place to break them in his honour .

Food was delicious as always .Spicy !
They give you fruits and blessed flowers take home .
I gave the fruits to my bunnies . Flowers are in a huge bowl on my kitchen table .

I went to Chinatown afterwards,got some mooncakes and Vietnamese food. All in all,a good day .


Miss me?

I don't call it a book of shadows but I keep the small spells I devise, experiences I've had, and other insights in composition books. I prefer a modern approach.

Yes i did post personal stuff that were taken off by moderators on previous page, i understand why they did this, but i'm honest in approach in everything i post, but i need help, as i'm not against the Hermetic approach to religion, however there are evil people in all religions that value the spiritual side to religion perhaps by evil intentions, we must get beyond this:-

Hi Simbi,

The Book below i bought in Equinox Bookshop in the 1970's in Kensington, London, UK, the owner was obsessed with Aleister Crowley, and i'm slightly obsessed also, it doesn't mean that the owner believed in Aleister Crowley, as i don't, but he is a good starting point to study esoteric secret beliefs:-

Equinox Bookshop in Kensington, London, no longer exists, But Simbi can you research who owned it in the early 1970's, it is connected to your story.

Hi Simbi,
just because many have an interest in Aleister Crowley, as indeed i have, and the owner of Equinox Bookshop in the 1970's, doesn't mean there is evil intent, so i give a clue, who bought "Boleskine House" in the 1970's?

Please research, i will give more later, but leave a favourite song of yours:-

Our perception in metaphor and symbolism is that a diamond should look like a Dodecahedron, link below:-

So the girls will love "LUCY", that is a dead star but also a diamond:-

My bank account got riped off, I got the money back, but it was sure a pain to get everything changed and fixed.  Really man, you can't be to careful.


There is something to be learned from Crowley, but you have to take it for what it is. He had some pretty nutty ideas. It is like everything glean the good and toss the shaft for pigs to lay on. I think Crowley came up with "Do as you will," then Doreen Valiente added "Harm none," part.  (Darn you Doreen, such a kill joy. LOL)
Edit forgot to add my favorite LZ song.

Hi Darkwind,

Please note what i said was "IF investigating Esoteric Secret Beliefs then Crowley is a good place to start", my personal idea's about Crowley aren't good as shown on link below:-

Hi Simbi,

Crowley can bring up emotions, people who study him are not always in agreement, however there are a lot of good people that follow Hermetic beliefs, "All that Glitter is Gold" is code for alchemist hermetic ideas and beliefs.

Jimmy Page did own Boleskine House that once belonged to Crowley, and he owned Equinox Book Shop in Kensington, London in the early 1970's.

http://en.wikipedia....Boleskine_House

This is why if feel "Stairway to Heaven" is linked to Cleopatra.

Did you ever play it backward?  I did, silly Jimmy.  I think the song was just a dig a hypocritical Christians. I really don't see the link to Cleopatra, but unless I could ask him I don't know.  All his stuff had strong Pagan elements in it. One fine Bard, that is for sure.

Hi Darkwind,

Yes there are lots of symbolism, and as May Queen is mentioned, there are some that feel there is connection to a poem by Crqwley called "May Queen", link below:-

http://www.tumblr.co...fore=1304342098

This mentions Queen and god's daughter, and is also connected to May Day and Walpurgis Night.

Hi Simbi,

I hope you will stay in contact, i'm not against Jimmy Page!

Hi Darkwind,

I hope you will follow, i'm not against you, all this is highly complicated with World Religions, don't worry if you show stuff against, that is normal, but we really need to get on top of this, it is important to us all!  I'm also worried about synchronicity, i can't give anything regarding this, it is beyond me!!!!

Please note first images of 7/7/2005 flashed around the world, as most of this was "Underground", most images featured "The London Bus" that had 13 victims, tell me i'm wrong!

http://2012forum.com...=6633&mode=view

I'll be back tomorrow!

I have a question
How do these spells work?
