I look forward to reading The Book of Paths once the translation is finished. I will reread the above in a nutshell version a few more times to try and digest a little more.Smaragd wrote: ↑Fri Feb 22, 2019 11:35 pmThese can be found from The Book of Paths, which I believe is under translation from Finnish to English. Maybe frater Nefastos, Fatuus or soror Heith have some more or less vague idea of the publishing schedule. These meditations are a bit more towards the contemplative side, so the instructions doesn't differ much at all, although there is a bit more text to chew on.
I remember checking the bewildering TM course prices when I was just starting to get familiar with the world of occult doctrines, societies and practices. Happy to have gone a bit different path, but reminded of the organization I'm curious of the technique. David Lynch instructing students on the promotion videos was a symphatetic scenario.
The prices really are quite steep, though my friend said he was able to get a reduced price, and he finds it helpful to have a life long teacher to check in with. I suppose if you're not much of a self-learner there's some appeal in having that kind of push and encouragement. I'm a big Lynch fan, and honestly I don't think I would have attempted meditation again and stuck with it if it wasn't for him. I found other methods very uncomfortable for me because it's very difficult for me to keep a still mind. I feel though that I've grown quite a bit from when I started, and I feel continuous growth, so I think my foundation is strong enough now to try other methods again with at least a bit more success.
