    Sadly, the relationship between Christians and pagans in my country is not as harmonious as the Japanese. 

     

    "Shinto worship and buddhism is highly entwined in Japan, two sides of the same coin of Japanese religion, they coexist simultaneously. The Japanese very actively keep shinto practice alive, a lot of companies will have a small shrine, when a new building is opened they often have a shinto priest bless it."

    I wish I could say the same is true with Orthodox Christianity and the indigenous faith of my ancestors, however the reality is the two are vastly different, and unfortunately, I'm in no position to comment on pagan beliefs or rituals. All I can say is that over the years I've struggled to develop a personal relationship with my Lord, God and Savior Jesus Christ.
     

    The Orthodox Church can also be culturally homogeneous, while growing up in a multicultural city I recall in my youth, Russians would go to their own community churches, as would Serbs, or Greeks etc. and rarely would they co-celebrate.

     

    Nowadays it depends on where you as an individual feel most comfortable.  

      

    It's a unique experience altogether. For example, the road I take won't be the same as yours. Your path and struggles will be your own. We could attend the same church, pray together, break bread, but up to a point your journey would be different than mine. 

     

    Think of this spiritual struggle as two people working out at the same gym. Their fitness results will vary between the two. Depending on their fitness level, weight, age, experience, gender etc. all will factor into a person's individual progress.

     

    Does that make sense? 

     

    Yes it's clear to me. The Catholic (and Celtic) churches couldn't live together with the Pagans, or each other over here too, and being essentially the Roman Empire at prayer they had all the state power to enforce their supremacy. The Romans left but Catholicism eventually triumphed, till along came the Church of England* which is our national church, but by then the Catholics and Protestants were fighting each other. There's different "mood music" in each church, different community, culture, and variations in the spiritual path that despite all the decline they aren't considering mergers between the denominations. 

     

    Sorry to hear about your struggles with relating to your God. I've been on a winding spiritual path myself and approaching into paganism atm. However, some years ago after lots of ups and downs, the sense of "struggle" fell away and my path became lighter, my meditation almost effortless. Years of chasing goals and experiences was replaced by seeing the truth that's already here. Long after I left Christianity I discovered the meaning of that quote about becoming as little children. 

     

    Not that life as a whole is free from struggle! "Progress" however is for my secular life. 

     

    * Nowadays dubbed the Tory party at prayer!! The C of E ultimately failed as our ethnic church because of the class system here. The elite just love being elite!!

    Just to add about memory. I don't think we hold vast amounts of memory. As far as I'm aware no one has ever found a memory in a brain. I believe it exists "out there somewhere"

     

    It is my belief that memory is a function all by itself. It records everything. We are a vessel of particular recall of memory. Much like thoughts flow through us so do memories if triggered by a particular function.

     

    Thanks, some great food for thought here too. You're not the only one, I've heard theories about the human brain containing more of an interface or communication device with the mind-stuff held elsewhere, so that dementia for example doesn't mean the erasure of the memories but is a breakdown of the link between body and mind. I'm open to different ideas but would say that there's also no evidence of the alternative theories either. Some people claim to visit the akashic records but that's still in my undecided basket.

    What on earth has happened to the Land of Hope and Glory?

     

    Thanks Mac. I realised some years ago that end-of-the-world type armageddon stories in religions are actually just metaphors for the end of a culture, its replacement by a new order or empire. For example the Biblical Book of Revelation can be seen as a coded description of the Roman suppression of Jewish culture and the destruction of the Temple following the uprisings in the 1st & 2nd Centuries. The mythology gets rehashed in the 20th and 21st C by evangelicals for example to refer to the decline of Christianity in the West. 

     

    The 'global warming' >> 'climate change' >> 'climate crisis' storyline we've been fed over the past few generations looks very like another instance of a crypto-religious prophecy being used as a coded description of an actual agenda being put into action. The NWO will be fully revealed when the ptb announce that they have finally got the climate crisis under control following all the restrictions they had to put on us, as they will need to explain why the world hasn't actually ended and humans are still around.  

      

    On the other point about the changing vision of traditional British institutions, I have the occasional hopeful moment. We went to a pantomime in January and a rock concert last month, both in large venues filled only with people of the same race as me, a rare experience nowadays. Maybe events like those will be targeted in due course but for now it makes me feel my culture is still worth trying to save.

    "Multipolarity is just a code word for globalism without white people

     

    Reminds me of another comment I saw that multiculturalism is just a temporary phase of history when one culture is being replaced by another. 

     

    As an Anglo-Saxon myself I think it's high time for us to regroup and start rebuilding our community from the grassroots up. I get tired of only hearing my tribe mentioned when other tribes are putting us down (by targetting the elites), rarely by Anglos ourselves. It's almost as if the White British identity is promoted as  a way of severing us from our roots, even Celts don't seem to have that problem. At least not yet, but I'm watching the situation in Ireland with interest.

    We can see the human body is one entity, but it is made up of different functioning parts that have relationship so the whole can function. We don't split our body in to different entities, heart lungs, similarly there is no need to separate existence in this way - the main reason we do is because of language and culture.

     

    In our modern scientific reductionism we do divide up the body into parts, in perhaps the same way as an engineer divides up an inorganic object into parts like a car. We have doctors who specialise in hearts, lungs, brains, bones etc. Because the total amount of medical knowledge is too much for a single person to know it all; when your GP reaches the limits of their ability they refer you to a specialist. 

     

    What you're speaking of with wholes divided into parts which are themselves wholes reminds me of Arthur_Koestler's_Holons a useful concept. I agree a human body is an entity, but so is a kidney. Neither entity can exist without its particular environment - humans exist on our planet with all our social and environmental relationships like families, societies, food, air, water etc.

    I don't think anyone has found a subconscious mind. I think it's a way to describe unconscious thoughts not known to the conscious mind.

     

    We know the brain has many functions we aren't aware of like how it controls hormones, heart rate, breathing etc. I suggest that thoughts originate as energetic processes which can move across from an unaware area like the brain stem to an aware area like the neo-cortex. But it's just a theory. There's no 'I' apart from what's called the executive function. 

     

    Edit. Another example of unconscious mind is memory. We hold a vast amount of memories, knowledge and learning which is hidden untill we 'remember' or 'recall' it into conscious awareness when we need it. It would be hopeless to be aware of all our memories all the time! A bit like a computer calling up information from backing memory into the processor RAM as required. Thought is essentially a string of language and imagery pulled up from the subconscious memory into conscious awareness. But there must be some process choosing which words and images to string together.

    Yes I see what you're saying.

     

    From experience speaking at the ultimate level so to speak 

     

    There are no such things as entities. There are seeming entities.

     

    These seeming entities cannot produce thoughts or feelings - the apparent driver of causation. Thoughts feelings are seemingly separate things that flow through seeming entities who then claim to have caused it. 

     

    How and where do these causations come from, i.e. where do thoughts and feeling come from? Cannot be sure. I think a number of places and environments but there is no one behind it planning, it just happens....

     

    Best way I conceptualize it. Everything is like a human body. We're like cells. No one saying heart beat please, nose breath please, it just happens like a symphony....

     

    How I kinda see it...

     

    Interesting, and I'm out of likes.  If there's no entities, then everything is an absolute oneness and there's no room for relationships. But as soon as We create a boundary or distinction, we simultaneously create the relationships and connections between the parts. Parts + relationships = process.  Then you can carry on with the reductionist dividing and splitting up, "creating" an ever more detailed network of processes, as with the metaphor of Indra's Net. I'm not sure if there's a limit to this, scientists haven't yet found the ultimate indivisible building blocks of reality so it's possible to say that it's 'process all the way down'. 

     

    Do you believe in the existence of the subconscious or unconscious mind? That's one explanation of where thoughts and feelings come from. That what we call the consciousness is only a fragment of the total mind which is much vaster.

    Why is ethnic nationalism rejected everywhere except Israel?

    In my opinion the only path is the Orthodox Christian path.
     
    But the choice is entirely our own.

    Who do you say Jesus Christ is?

     

    Firstly, thanks for the comprehensive and detailed posts, and I hope you'll understand that I can't reply to them all. So here goes with one point to get started. 

     

    I don't want any personal information and I don't  know if you're Greek, but if you believe in ethnic nationalism (as I do), then does it follow that you would favour your ethnicity's own religion rather than an imported one, especially one which originated from a culture which you clearly have issues with. 

     

    Universal religions like Catholicism and Islam are pulling away from ethnic nationalism aren't they, and the Orthodox varieties are more of a compromise. Isn't Paganism a closer match to ethnicity because each culture has its own pantheon? Why not promote the Greek pantheon of Hellenism? 

     

    Looking at it from a polytheistic pov, the idea of a chosen people doesn't make sense because each people has its own Gods. But if you choose one pagan God like Yahweh and promote him to monotheistic status, then the tribe which that God belongs to ethnically gets chosen too. Because that tribe's whole package comes with it; the mythology, history, language, geography even. 

     

    But as you say, free choice for us all.

    Was just thinking today about simulation theory and chat about AI.

     

    So if this place is a simulation made by evil folks. Then that implies everything was built by them. Which implies they can control the simulation already...

     

    So why this talk of AI reading our minds and controlling us? If we are already in some sort of evil simulation, everything like this would already be controlled by the designer. No need for AI, or to read minds, or control people in an already controlled environment.....

     

    People use words like 'simulation' and 'matrix' quite loosely these days without really explaining it. Does it mean that the real 'me' is actually imprisoned somewhere within a 5-sense virtual reality bodysuit which has entirely dictated my perception since birth? In that case, everyone else in my world is a computer simulation including this forum that's telling me I'm in a simulation! That's like a virtual solipsism 😮 

     

    On the other hand, if you other folks out there are real and the simulation is only partial, there's more hope. Perhaps this world and all its people is physically real but our beliefs are heavily manipulated so that it's our 'world view' which is the simulation.

    They did a study some time ago that concluded that vitamin supplements simply wash through the body and have no effect. I suspect big pharma owns that industry anyway as well known naturpaths were banned around covid time.

    Ditto diet industry. We are healthier without all the extras generally, unless your diet is all processed crap.

     

    I heard about that with water-soluble vitamins like C. If you take too much you just end up with expensive pee. So if I've got a cold or something and want extra vit C I'll space it out through the day. 

    On the other hand, oil soluble vitamins like A do accumulate in the body and we can overdose with toxic results so be careful folks!

    And why is the literature about black magic so full of complicated rituals involving initiates and sacrifices as if it's difficult to bring entities and demons over to our world? Why can't the entities come here whenever they want ?

    They can. Most of the stuff in books is bs.

     

    Black, white or grey magic is really just labels.

     

    Thinking about it, the classic black magic / ceremonial magic sorcery and necromancy is geared towards calling up powerful entities who the occultist can control, and therefore increase their own power for whatever nefarious purpose. 

     

    Vice-versa, in situations where 'white' practitioners like Wiccans want to protect themselves from malicious entities and bad energy, they cast a circle, perhaps with salt and magical symbols, and stay inside it for the duration of the ritual. 

     

    I never tried that stuff myself so don't know if it's true either, or just psychologically true.

    Nasty things are around people all the time. It's just you can't see them with your simulation five senses.

     

    Possession happens to lots of people regardless of whether they can astral experience. Although they are less likely to become possessed if they can astral experience.

     

    It might be helpful to you to focus on those memories before going to sleep. And many sources recommend keeping a 'dream diary'.

    The entities hate a mind like yours, one who questions, thinks and looks for what is going on.

     

    Your attitude is also good for making the entities think you are "more trouble than you're worth". They want easy energy supply (they are lazy by nature) so when a being is giving them a hard time they want rid of you.

     

    They hate being seen. Once you see them for what they are it infuriates them

     

     

    Have you seen them? And if so did they look like how David Icke describes them?

    I will contact you through the astral if you would like? I'll answer your questions there. If you are truly willing and ready it will become obvious to you. 

     

    I'm not ready yet but thinking about how to get practical hands-on (so to speak) experience rather than endlessly reading and listening to other people's ideas and not knowing what I can trust.  At the moment I'm looking into safe and reliable ways to explore the subject but not in any hurry.

    That's probably the biggest aspect stopping you. 

     

    It is a common misconception that if you don't remember being in the astral that you haven't 'been there'. But in fact you have a presence 'there' as you are in the 'simulation' 'here'. Also there are many aspects to the astral that you will only fully understand when you make yourself fully conscious of your presence there (and here) at all times.

     

    Does it concern you that you have little or no memory of about a third of your life? Or that you are compelled to 'go to sleep' after a certain amount of time? 

     

    Yes it's scary, if I leave my body and go astral travelling, what happens if I meet someone nasty on the other side or my body gets possessed while I'm absent? 

     

    You're saying we go to the astral when we sleep? When I was a child I often used to dream about flying, I would be in a landscape and just sort of lean forwards and take off up to about max of treetop height and other people around me didn't get surprised. But I've only consciously had OOBEs a couple of times. 

     

    Yes it's  all concerning, but then I have a lot of inquiring to do to understand this. If it's so easy to travel into the astral while asleep, why is it so hard to do it consciously when awake - for some of us anyway?  And why is the literature about black magic so full of complicated rituals involving initiates and sacrifices as if it's difficult to bring entities and demons over to our world? Why can't the entities come here whenever they want ?  

     

    I'm not surprised that I get tired and need to sleep every day, most animals need to sleep because our bodies are limited and need to rest.

    You might think you are awake but you are not.

    Do you know how this world....illusory world works? I mean the mechanism.

     

    How is the world itself illusory? Illusions exist within our minds as a misinterpretation of the sensory information coming into us, like a mirage for example. But the world is just itself. So the mechanism is to do with how we are conditioned to see and understand what's going on.

  20. It's an interesting question. They are the successors to the Persian empire and the Zoroastrian religion, and have been an important player in world history for thousands of years. The current dialectic between Iran and the USA also cuts across the divide between Shia and Sunni Islam. And Iran is a big Islamic opponent of Zionism as they support proxies like Hamas and Hezbollah. 

     

    In terms of secret society networks, Persia was the home of Hasan-i Sabbah the leader of the Order of Assassins, contemporaries of the Knights Templar.  

     

    I can't give a definitive answer as it's a subject I'd like to research more, but with all these dialectics and divide-and-rule tactics going on it looks very plausible that Iran is part of the illuminati network. It looks like their footprints all right. Although it probably goes by another name over there, illuminati being a German name for it.

    There was actually something big that happened during 2020 in the astral and the simulation connection that caused the entities a big loss. Many people left at that time, and just after, in large numbers. They used the pandemic as a cover story for that exodus. They fought to the end on that disaster for them but still they lost on that.

     

    Out of interest, where do you get your information about the astral, personal experience or from someone else? 

     

    I've tried a few times to astral travel (OOBE) in the past, with only a couple of very brief successes. Can you share anything about your methods and techniques to get into the astral? And how to keep yourself safe in what sounds like a dangerous place - that's one thing which puts me off trying more. But if that's where we're going after earthly death, perhaps we should all get prepared for it while we're alive.

    All of these stories and stats have been posted everyday by doomsters since 2008 and folks shilling gold and silver - by far the worst investment in recent times..

     

    That's everyday for 16 years the same, "backed by nothing", debt unsustainable brics taking over dollar to zero etc

     

    Yet here we are 16 years later everything as is.....

     

    Yes if you keep saying the same thing every day one day you will be right but doesn't take into account the thousands of times you were wrong.....

     

    One reason why this debt problem sounds worse than it really is, is because for the UK at any rate,  about 1/3 of the govt debt is owed to itself. This is due to how the 'quantitative easing' system works - the govt borrows off itself (ie prints money) which it uses to buy back commercial debt (bonds) and promises to pay itself back. The interest gets paid to itself. The figures are a year old but this principle still holds true today. The figures are still very high though and billions are spent on debt. 

     

    "At the end of March 2023, UK General government gross debt was £2,537.0 billion, or 100.5% gross domestic product.[2]

     

    Approximately a third of the UK National Debt is owned by the British government due to the Bank of England's quantitative easing programme, so approximately a third of the cost of servicing the debt is paid by the government to itself. In 2018, this reduced the annual servicing cost to approximately £30 billion (approx 2% of GDP, approx 5% of UK government tax income)."
