Thread: Here to learn

    Here to learn

    Greetings.

    I am here to learn about several Pantheons which have piqued my interest: Norse, Germanic and Celtic. I already have an interest in Greek mythology, but for spiritual content i've found that the Eastern traditions (particularly Buddhism and Taoism) are more accessible - certainly more so than Christianity. But now it has come to my attention that Europe may have just as rich a spiritual culture in the form of Paganism, hence my interest. I'm particularly interested in Shamanism.

    I'm also training to be a scientist so i can offer some insights there in exchange for your knowledge. I hope this is a good place to ask questions about all the above.

    I must have a prodigious quantity of mind; it takes me as much as a week sometimes to make it up.
    Mark Twain

    Somewhat like Hunter S. Thompson who was called a gonzo Journalist,I consider myself to be something of a gonzo Pagan.

    The wizard be in: But be warned if you poke him to much,the standard wand of anal probing +10 may be utilized.

    It is interesting that humans seem to believe that they are the crown of creation,until nature drops a house on them....Just saying....

    I have decided that I no longer want to be an adult... If anyone needs me, I'll be in my blanket fort, coloring.

    I look forward to conversing.
    Those who have suffered understand suffering and therefore extend their hand.

    I can't do everything, but I can do something.

    Hello and welcome!
    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."
    ~~Stephen Jay Gould, Wonderful Life: The Burgess Shale and the Nature of History

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    We don't use the article feature of the software for the forum, but there are some residual links left over that are difficult to remove entirely.

    You can post links once you've reached 15 posts that aren't in the intro/ lols and games sections. As it is currently, you're in the newbie usergroup, which doesn't permit posting links and pictures. Once you reach 15, you will be bumped into the next usergroup automatically and can then post links, pictures, videos, etc. These are unfortunate but necessary countermeasures we have to take to combat the many spammers and bots that we get.

    Welcome to the forum, by the way.

    The ability to destroy a planet is insignificant compared to the power of the Force.

    Re: Here to learn

    Regarding the post limit, reply to my post in the D&D thread and you're at 15. Your usergroup should change pretty much instantly after that. The change will be reflected in your title.
    "It is not simply enough to know the light…a Jedi must feel the tension between the two sides of the Force…in himself and in the universe."
    ―Thon

    "When to the Force you truly give yourself, all you do expresses the truth of who you are,"

    Yoda

    Yoda told stories, and ate, and cried, and laughed: and the Padawans saw that life itself was a lightsaber in his hands; even in the face of treachery and death and hopes gone cold, he burned like a candle in the darkness. Like a star shining in the black eternity of space.

    Yoda: Dark Rendezvous

    "But those men who know anything at all about the Light also know that there is a fierceness to its power, like the bare sword of the law, or the white burning of the sun." Suddenly his voice sounded to Will very strong, and very Welsh. "At the very heart, that is. Other things, like humanity, and mercy, and charity, that most good men hold more precious than all else, they do not come first for the Light. Oh, sometimes they are there; often, indeed. But in the very long run the concern of you people is with the absolute good, ahead of all else..."

    John Rowlands, The Grey King by Susan Cooper

    "You come from the Lord Adam and the Lady Eve", said Aslan. "And that is both honour enough to erect the head of the poorest beggar, and shame enough to bow the shoulders of the greatest emperor on earth; be content."

    Aslan, Prince Caspian by CS Lewis
