I will give here few experiences while searching for mystery school.
It is not my intention to belittle any teachings,schools or individuals,but to present my point of view in regard to Spiritual and /or mystery school.
Before that,I joined Qigong class here on Veritas.
Kouji is the Teacher with good reputation,and I decided to see what is in the class.
In the start,we are all asked multiple questions.
I didn't like some questions.It is my belief that teachings like qigong should't start with curiosity about other students,but rather focus on teachings,and let students talk about self when they want to.
It was uncomfortably to read lectures,cos they were just quote/paste,grey letters on a grey surface,exactly from last year qigong course.No effort was made to present lectures in a new,fresh way.
I didn't continue the course,for the same reason I didn't last year.Same quoted/pasted lectures-gray letters on a grey surface like all quoted posts.
Later,I was contacted by kobok about my experiences and satisfaction with qigong course.I didn't respond cos I thought Kouji deserves time to correct mistakes in teaching qigong.How many students complete qigong course,I dont know.
before that,last year, I decided to see what is in The Order Of Hollow Ones.Few days after I made consultation with mr.Black, and gave my real data,an very unpleasant spiritual experience occurred.Specifically,an dark entity entered my room with no friendly intentions.Luckily for me,I am no greenhorn in a spiritual warfare..
Later Akenu explained to me few details,and I am thankful for that.But still,my doubts remain.
Then I made few other attempts to advance spiritually.
To make long story short,I was disappointed with all of them.
Then I applied to TDS last year.
I was accepted,and I feel good to be part of the school.
Being inside the school on a daily basis,for more than a year,I can testify that school is real one.
We, the students,are not perfect,and we are not pretending to be.Our teachers too.We are taught an noble tradition above all,and to be respectful and be courteous to all.
Bad experiences from many different schools and teachings led me to TDS.
It is possible that TDS is not the best school out there.
But surely beats all other schools and teachings I encountered!
