Main Hall / Refurbishing the V-Library
« Last post by MikeWho on December 02, 2017, 03:49:59 AM »
I've spent years relying on the V-Library as a means of reference as well as interest. Tonight I went to read Dion Fortune's The Mystical Qabalah when I noticed that the link was dead. In fact, I found that a great many of the links were down.

I'm willing to make it a personal project and responsibility to upgrade it. I'm the least social piece of Veritas Furniture that exists here but do regular the site on a monthly to weekly basis as "guest" and have for almost a decade. I've watched the place go from competing with other forums and filled with mischief and mentors, weekend retreats and scandal, to being just about as dead as it is now.

As a fellow community member, I would like to put my hand in refurbishing the site. An Veritas "revival" of sorts, perhaps by way of academia and I believe this begins in the library. I believe that with a strong library we will rebuild our position as a goto destination for students, teachers, professors, practitioners, and the mere curious. A strong library also encourages the use of the forums, which remains our primary apparatus of communication.

Who do I speak to about contributing my time to rebuilding the library?

Depends on the lineage in question - the Mao-Shan sect of Taoism practice a type of light gazing which is virtually identical to the Thogal/Rainbow body practices of Dzogchen. Other sects emphasis working with the central channel to refine the elixir of immortality. Then of course there are external alchemic methods which extend life - The "Premium Ens Melissa" of Paracelsus fame being the most well known example within western alchemy.

Spirituality / Eastern spiritual alchemy paths

A path of Eastern Taoists spiritual alchemy.

http://www.bahaistudies.net/asma/the_secret_of_the_golden_flower.pdf

This path is an analogue of Hindu chakra-yoga. Describes the Taoists practice for obtain higher spiritual powers and spiritual "immortality".
Heavenly heart in this book is chakra Ajna in yoga and "fleshly" heart is chakra Anahata in yoga. The beginning of the journey is calm down Ajna chajra (Heavenly heart) - about three months daily meditation - and then years meditations on chakra Anahata (fleshly heart) until is not open. When is chakra relally open, so you obtain powers siddhis and can see gods. Also to be significantly prolong life, allowing the adept to achieve the goal.
Meditation on Anahata is possible before you sleep too, speeds up the result.

I'm quite glad I failed at lying to myself. Wish a bunch of other morons would do the same. Maybe we'd move past superstitious wishful thinking. This shit doesn't exist at all. No amount of pseudo science will validate occult stupidity. It's about the most pathetic thing in to world to actually take this crap serious. It really is a shame I wasted so much of my life being apart of it. Bunch of fucked up and useless people in the occult. Nothing but delusional human garbage. I'd say that if you believe in this crap you're an idiot. Time to grow up folks, quite the magical thinking and get own with your life.

The worst thing about the occult communities is the circle jerk they all engage in. Trying to validate empty beliefs, giving their sorry lives some false meaning. Sad, truly sad.

You want to pass the blame on me? Really. It's nothing more than magical thinking. The only model of magick that's correct is the psychological one, because all you're doing is fucking with your head. There is no causal power in using dressed up affirmations and stupid rituals. Saying fancy words and using the imagination doesn't fix any of life problems. All systems of magick are nothing more than mental masturbation.


And you want to blame everyone else for your own failure? If you didn't succeed at something, it doesn't mean it is impossible, it just means you didn't succeed at it.

Yes. Because all of them are basically the same. It all depends on what decorations you want to put on it. That's it. Every system, every method, equally crap. All of them. Magic is the art and science of self-deception. Plain and simple. Eventually kids grow out of magical thinking, some adults can't. Just because you said some words and did some ritual does do shit in the real work, you just think it does. All those ghost and spirits are just a product of your imagination. Not a single occultist has any actual power. None. There is no God, no salvation, no hope, no reincarnation. No matter what the occultist aspires to it's bullshit. I have become very anti-theist, anti-paranormal, and anti-supernatural.


You don't know that ;-). That's the thing, Chris, you never tried that, you always said "that doesn't work, what I do works", and now you say that nothing works including what you did....


If what you do, didn't work, you would know if you have used proper methods, same as with the PSI wheel, you claim that nothing works, yet I see no actual work on your part. What you say is basically this:


Before
You don't need medicine to cure anything, all you need is green tea
Now
Medicine doesn't work, I tried and the green tea never cured anything for me.

It doesn't matter. Its all bullshit anyway.

Why are you even bothering to try and sell this crap to me anyway?


I am not trying to sell you anything, I am just wondering. All your previous posts regarding the "meat grinder", "finding what works" and things like that and now you say it's all bullshit. It makes me wonder, can you say it's all bullshit with a full certainty, considering you have actually never tried an authentic system and sticked with it?
