I dont know if this is appropriate or not but want to express my opinion about the proposition of two teachers in the Magic Forum, actually one male and one female and think it a brilliant one. I dont know if this has been done in the past here ar Veritas or not, but none the less think its a great move whether I am one of the two or not. This will offer balance to tradition which has been historically male dominated. I know there are a lot of women interested in Magic and Hermeticism, who are very serious about the work such as myself, but attracted to what has become the Metaphysics of today which is usually recommended to women. It has become a mish mash of romanticized information who's delivery and ideas conveniently change depending on the practitioner which is confusing and can become frustrating, even discouraging to the serious student no matter what gender.
On another note, and know this is drifting from the main thread a bit, but wish to thank Kobok and all else who had the thought to recommend me for a teacher position. Whether it comes to be or not, you have no idea how this has effected me in a positive sense. It has leant inspiration at a time when it is so, so needed since I was, actually still am experiencing a very dark time in life... can honestly say, the most challenging ever. I know these cycles experienced are unavoidable unless you have cleaned your slate, no longer obligated to reincarnate any longer in this plane of existence. So, its normal for all serious practitioners/ students to experience this, some easier than others and many have been lost to it never to return to the work in that life again...and it looks as if Im not lost to it this life partially thanks to this.
So, thank you from the bottom of my heart for not only the encouragement to go on, but also your confidence in my abilities.
Ok, I voted for you Mind_Bender! :D
