I have noticed that I keep falling back into my bad habits, old routines, growing more and more lazier, and things like that, leaving nothing to show of my work and also by allowing my own personal progress to stagnate. I'll be taking a break from all forums to clear my head and get back into the right state of mind.

I wont come back here until I have something to show of my work. Not because I feel I have to but as gratitude. It will probably be a couple of years before i log back in so don't be surprised if I make a new account claiming to be me cause of forgotten passwords (imposters if any, good luck).

I advise people who read this to check out the book Outwitting The Devil by Napoleon Hill. It's also available as an audiobook on youtube. This compelling book is my new Bible (figuratively speaking).

The Devil is forced to answer questions that Napoleon Hill asks of him. The Devil eventually reveals that humans are controlled by a mam-made habit called drifting, where people allow themselves to be drawn into orbit, and form habits and routines that are contrary to their purpose, or what they truly want in life, but with their addictions they fall into routine and cannot escape.

Through definiteness of purpose, backed by accurate thought, the Devil reveals that this is the type of person who is truly his master. Someone who is definite and uses the power of their own mind to use accurate thought to reach definite decisions closes his mind so tight that the Devil fails to wield his way in.

Just like habit, routine, the book goes on to explain that this is caused by a law called Hypnotic Rhythm, the same law that draws all the planets to circle around the sun. As Above So Below.

You can change your life, its all in your hands, all you need is understanding and will power.

Stay true to your self. Take control over the things trying to attach themselves to you, like the superfluities we discard in our work. This includes people, memories, opinions, emotion... Stay true, and in control.

What has helped me is by realizing that everything I perceive in my mind, my thoughts and emotions, are nothing more than objects, meta-physical objects in my mental sphere that I hold onto with my will and desire. Leaving me mentally drained from holding onto them, like shopping bags, I learned to detach and merely observe, thoughts and feelings as they are, objects.

Holding onto the only ones that I want, which are the ones that are relevant to my life's purpose and happiness. I think life might just be, for our, for yours for mine, for one's own expression. Misery and discord, fighting and selfishness isn't necessary. I wont hold onto them no longer. These objects are not ones I want to carry in my bag.

I felt a euphoria doing this and it grew stronger and stronger. After this my body took a clean pure breath of relief and it was like i took my first breath. I finally let go.

I'll be back.

i love kristzian on this forum, pneumatician, chasm369, schmuldvich and my old friend rohan

thank you kristzian, chasm369, schmuldvich and pneumatician for making me feel my heart beat with your presence.

thank you rohan, before I started understanding the philosophy of nature our search and inquires felt really cool, mysterious, and thrilling which is a feeling that kept driving me to keep looking and searching and understanding. i feel like a buddha who has to keep reminding magicians that nothing that happens matters, because our selves are never harmed by anything, so just focus on immortality so that we survive death and simply leave our body and acquire another.

i had gods appear before me in my room and I inquired about this loudly wondering what happened but magicians kept quiet but now I'm sure.

the gods cleaned all of the dirt in my mind so that I was no longer touching anything, so that I wouldn't combine myself with mental objects, making me free... I wonder who it is, I get a feeling I know who but I do not know if this/these person(s) would like their names mentioned

what is the difference between gods and magicians who have crossed the black sea and made union with their lover?

i really love kristizan, chasm369 , schmuldvich and pneumatician , I have been focusing on THINGS for the next few years as my Will drives me on a path that keeps me away from others.

i hope you are understanding the philosophy Rohan. I hope you are doing well. I hope Kristzian, Chasm369, Schmuldvich and pneumatician are doing well too. I love them a lot

The former have it far too "comfortable" and have therefore become too "complacent" to risk such a "crossing", so ultimately, the latter are far better off.

But...

I've seen how certain people treated Chasm369, Schmuldvich for asserting their views on Alchemy.

I've seen how bothered people can be by people who assert their views when the option to look away from what BOTHERS them is always there.

Are you listening to me? Oh okay. You're not bothered, are you? Oh no? Oh okay then I shall continue... But that other guy over there, when he speaks you're bothered.

Tell you what... When you go outside, do you hear the cars? Sure you do. I'm sure you hear the birds as well. They don't bother you.

Because you aren't listening to them. Your mind is occupied on other things. So don't blame the birds or cars for being noisy.

Don't blame people on the forum who aren't breaking rules to stop expressing their assertions. Look away if you must.

My love drives me to express my opinion on the art, share my work (eventually I promise it's coming), stick up for others, and to just hang out.

Bothered? Don't listen to me. Don't blame the cars, the birds, don't blame me for speaking.

Good day.

If you can't debate and discuss and disagree then what are you doing in a forum? That's what it is all about. Google define forum.

:p

I agree with you that we can simply choose to disregard the postings of someone we disagree with and this certainly can avoid a conflict or two but instead of ignoring the cars and the birds some would rather add some noise to the scene which is also okay, so long as the birds can keep singing their song as they too can ignore the cars and the lawnmower.
We can all keep howling at the moon all night but it will not change its course. :)

I think this is your way of debating, discussing and disagreeing with some of the noise on the forum and I think you are well within your rights to post what you have been whether members agree or not. Everyone see's in their own personal PER SPECTIVE.

I enjoy reading the comments of many members. We all have something to bring to the table so cheers to that!

:)

Maybe I'll post pictures but if I do it will be next month in July.

I closed up my flask later my Work started to bubble!!!

However, stupid me, thinking there was too much water, I opened up my flask to try to drain some out.

What happened next? Nothing. I closed up my flasks and never saw the bubbles again.

Rule of thumb: Don't open your flask when the Work has begun.

I'm going to need about 1.5 more years before I can really ''Show'' my understanding of the Art... I didn't think it'd be a problem to open up the flask seeing as though I had only closed it up for a Day.

It takes a long time for me to collect the right materials needed for the Art.

Sounds pretty keen. I am happy I've had the opportunity in my life to speak with someone like you.

For me, Gods are Magicians who crossed over and became Self Enlightened. This is not a contradiction to what you've said rather, I support what you say fully.

There is an importance of Tenacity in this Great Work.

Without it we would all just walk away and take up some common hobby.
