Default A website to visit on a cold, wet, afternoon.

I came across this website just this morning and find it hard to keep away. It contains so many interesting tales and the data available is just mind blowing.

Great thanks Brinty, looks like I will be spending a lot of time in this site!!

I meant to add that Avalon could no doubt take a page out of this sites book and do some marketing on a similar vein. There is tons of material stored here and it would be cool to have it all on DVD's.

You reading this guys?

I've read a few books off that website - LOVE IT! I read "A Dweller on Two Planets - Phylos the Thibetan" (amazing btw) and Bram Stoker's Dracula among other things... It's also a great source for Hermetic literature, and I believe it is where I printed my copy of The Emerald Tablets off from...

Wink Re: A website to visit on a cold, wet, afternoon.

I used to go there a couple of years ago.. forgot all about it, thanks a bunch Brinty. Seriously, how good is the internet? Sites like that remind me how lucky we are to have all the sacred wisdom of Earth at our fingertips compared to people even 30 years ago that had to navigate dusty labyrinthine libraries.

Yes great sight I've spent countless hours at, be sure to sign up to the free mailing list for updates if you like.
I'd recommend a book titled The Divine Pymander aka Corpus Hermetica, it has been the starting point for a lot of magical or esoteric thought, it comes from ancient Egypt and is a dialog between Hermes Trismegistus and Poimanders - the Universal Mind. Translated to english in 1610 from ancient greek version if I remember.

If you like sacred texts here are a few other must visits:

Talking Re: A website to visit on a cold, wet, afternoon.

haha indeed IT is. Have you by chance read any of the newer translations such as The Way of Hermes?

And thanks about the av! Yours is quite mesmerizing.

Aw Thanks

I haven't, but that is something I think I will do. I've been craving some hermetic stuff as of late. I feel like I need to read it all over and over again to really "get it". I wanna know those secrets so bad. Reading Phylos the Thibetan just made me wanna be able to do what those masters did, and I don't think there's any schools around that teach it Maybe somewhere under the Sphinx or something...

Thumbs up Re: A website to visit on a cold, wet, afternoon.

I know what you mean about trying to find that next level of knowledge, we "the public" really only get the scraps, and the scraps are more often then not delibritaly misleading.

For whatever reason I have a strong repulsion about joining any order, mystery school, or cult, and I'm sure most of them (all of them) are designed to mislead those who are awakening or have interest in the ancient arts anyways.

This is why I like to read the oldest stuff possible. With the hope that it isn't so manipulated as a lot of the new stuff is. Activating those higher rays/chakras are important to gain that knowing ourselves, which is what they try and hide from us.

Have you come across Poke Runyon on your journeys?
He is fun to watch if your into hermeticism.

No, but I will have to check him out. Phylos the Thibetan is amazing. I think it spurred a religious movement or two as well back when it came out... I found out about it b/c it is on David Wilcock's list of Recommended reading, so it must've had a big impact on him as well. I've heard him mention parts of it during some of his interviews.

Really great stuff, it won't disappoint. I think a few parts even brought me to tears b/c of the Atlantean memories it brought up.
