You know. There are more important things to do in life that masturbating to your magical thinking.


Oh, definitely, there are also more important things than brushing your teeth, yet you do it each day and more than once.

IIH is definitely a good start, but also a very complex book. Most people give up very early and it is actually hard to keep up with the practice. The book was intended this way to keep out the "unworthy". Unfortunately times have change and most of us do not have the luxury of time required to cope with IIH.

Which books would you recommend instead then, if any?

Tough choice. Well, I did write a couple of books on the topic, but I would rather recommend to go free-roaming. Try things here and there and see what clicks for you. If the OP wants to follow some book, then e.g. NAP is simple to follow, then in terms of Chaos Magick, there is of course this: https://ultraculture.org/blog/2015/11/13/psychonaut-field-manual/ which is nicely illustrated, or you can pick one of my books.

..............., but heed my warning and stay away from cults (some even proposed here on the site).

What would you consider a cult?
Would you consider the OTO, and other Golden Dawn offshoots, and the various Wiccan and Druid groups, etc. to be cults?

Maybe not as cults, but I would definitely steer clear of these, as well.

How about changing the forum name a little to, lets say, 'Occult Veritas', as an example; for it is not obvious that it is an occult forum with just the name 'Veritas'; at first I though I might be a political forum.
And, when doing an internet search, 'Veritas' is less likely to come up because the word 'veritas' on its own has no occult connotations.
.


Not a bad idea. If would be actually enough to change the meta description and add some meta keywords, so far the only thing here is
<meta name="description" content="The Veritas Society - Index" />[/size]
[/size]
[/size]There is definitely some settings in SMF CMS which deals with meta tags and keywords.

Hi Akenu.  Those would be small changes.  For a little while now the staff have been working on more comprehensive improvements, to be rolled out when they are ready.


When they are ready. And what kind of timeline are we speaking?
