I'm interested in rose symbolism in magick and also in
freemasonry, amorc and rosicrucianism so follow up if
you know something about it or have some relevant links.

Some maybe also be interested in my blue rose vision
of Sept. 6, 1991 which is described on
http://www.nfld.com/~dalton/sunstare.html
which is a subsubpage of my Salmon on the Thorns
web page http://www.nfld.com/~dalton/dtales.html .

No, because you quite often say things you don't believe. Like that
business where you said that "all anyone needs to know is that there
is one Creator". You just say stuff. It's not like you mean any of
it.

You don't mean that either. You just say stuff. Why indulge in so
much futility? Do you think that by saying things you make them
real? Is that how you think magick works?

you're a moron. i always speak honestly, period. how you hear it is not how anyone else

start with just one issue and then we deal with it, and then
move on to the next.
There is no "next" when you say that all anybody needs to know is that
there is one Creator. Anything you say thereafter is superfluous,
just noise. And yet here you are, saying all sorts of other stuff
anyway. Why?

The answer is obvious. You don't actually believe that is all anybody
needs to know. You're just saying stuff in the hopes that by saying
it, you can make it real. Thus, you think that magick is simply a
matter of saying something in order to make it real.

The meaning seems pretty clear to me, but you're the one who said it,
so who knows what you've decided to mean by it now? So are you going
to tell us what you think you meant by that and why is that the only
thing anybody needs to know? And isn't that more than just knowing
there is only one Creator?
Post by Dennes De Mennes

Of course not. I'm the one who said that and I never claimed you
did. Aren't you clear on who said what?
Post by Dennes De Mennes

context is.
So you're not clear on who said what after all, or what you might have
meant. This is because you just say stuff. No wonder you can't keep
it straight.

You said: "There is only one Creator. That's all you need to know."
That is a direct quote. If you think there is some sort of contextual
situation that alters the meaning, feel free to provide one. That way
we can see what other stuff you think we need to know.

i didn't say it out of thin air. must have been a reply to something and so there's a
whole context you're just ignoring. you just picked my response and yanked it out. and
then added the parts about everything is noise. one of the things i say is that
everything has a purpose, not everything is noise.

So you're saying that you really didn't mean that the only thing
anybody needs to know is that there is only one Creator? That you
really meant something else but you can't remember what it was?

Like I noted before, you just say stuff.

like i said, it has meaning when seen in its whole context. what was i replying to. what

for a billion replies. it was meant for that one reply only. each time i reply it's a new
thing because each message is unique. if it requires i use that again i will, but i can't
predict that ahead of time.

It might have a different meaning or it might not, but you don't know
because you don't remember what you meant when you said it. Like I
say, you just say stuff. In a little while you forget what you said
and what it meant. None of it sticks.

it was only meant for that one reply and it made sense back then, but why you want to

doesn't matter because i always speak honestly, so i'm sure i did then, also. if i have

i always post sincerely every time, but what differs is my current perception at the time
of me saying it, so something I say a while back might have needed to be updated for my
new level of awareness. I can't predict that. I say the way I see it right now. If

Case in point! What got my attention back in October was the way you fell
back on the formulation "'only' a metaphor, 'just' a metaphor."

Today you're owning your content, which is great.

One interesting thing that can happen from here is discovering what
remains as perceptions change. Until that happens, it's "your" talk, but
it could be more. To own & inhabit the metaphors.

To occupy "structures."

So where did I say I would wish to decide what you say? You made that
up. It's yet another example of how you just say stuff. It's not
like what you say has any definite meaning, consistency, or
relationship to anything outside your head right at the moment. I've
told you already that it's OK with me if you say stuff. Is it OK with
you if I say stuff, too?

well, don't be telling me what i mean when i say what i say, unless you quote the entire
message. if you just yank one little part out and start pontificating i will call you on
it. i need to see the whole context, the entire conversation to see what i myself meant,
i can't recall every little thing i say, i'm not a computer.

Why not simply admit you don't remember saying it or what you might
have meant by it? Why demand that I remember it all for you? *You*
wrote the words. If you can't remember what you meant, it's not my
responsibility to explain them to you. That's just another example of
how you just say stuff. And where did I say I wanted to decide what
you say? Did I say that or did you just make it up? You seem to be
ignoring that. Did you forget where you made than imputation as
well? Hint: It's right in front of your nose.

You're simply not paying attention and no wonder. Your mind flits
around. You have no focus and a poor memory. Work on those. Both
are amenable to improvement with diligent practice.

i concentrate on the message in front of me at the moment. i always speak sincerely. if
you have a problem, then quote the corresponding offending data, and we can examine it.

The conversation didn't involve you.
Was I eavesdropping on your private e-mail, or reading a post in a
public newsgroup? If you were having a private conversation that did
not involve any other readers, then you chose the wrong medium for
it.

Nonetheless, I can see that you are far too vain to admit a flaw, even
when it's blatantly obvious.

I did quote it, but you forgot what you meant by it and haven't the
wit or the will to look up your own words to remind yourself, if
indeed you ever meant anything at all. Further, you lack the humility
to admit it. So you insist that I find more and more of your words in
the hope that somehow they will begin to make sense to you. If they
still make no sense, you can always insist that there still isn't
enough "context" yet and demand more and more. There's no end to
that.

Well, they do tend to get boring after you've heard a lot of them and
none of them ever turn out to have any point or utility. David is one
the a number of badly malfunctioning brains which have been recently
dumping their diseased mental products all over the newsgroup in
excessive amounts. Not that I consider your own efforts to be much
better.

You don't mean that either.  You just say stuff.  Why indulge in so
much futility?  Do you think that by saying things you make them
real?  Is that how you think magick works?

It does work magick if they believe as Donald Michael Kraig does that
magick is a change in consciousness as a direct result of an act of
will. They post, in accordance with their pattern of will at the time
you encounter it, and they are changed by the act of it not your
response to it. You respond to it and they see that as evidence to
support their contingent conception of the act of magick.

Now you could get into technomagick but it might be scary. Was for me,
maybe it's just this decadent western civilization making me a pussy.
Sorry random thought, it's got to be the demon rum, good rum this new
years eve, 23.99 a bottle.

Actually nobody is.  Except you, of course.
Tom, entertain his experience, you don't have to learn anything, or
feel anything but your nihilation of his experience only shows your
guarded insecurity towards another's experience. Guard dog or not you
are showing a great deal of inauthenticity.
