...this. First off, I'm not a youngster where I'd be off trying this and that. It came about a different way. I grew up in a Christian (Catholic)religious family (by word not action necessarily)... There's a few very interesting mystics out there that I liked to read because they were looked down upon. I practiced forms of meditation, astral projection. Made progress, but I always felt like I did not belong in the label. Or for that matter any group. Anybody feel this before embarking on a full study of the occult? To find your place? I've since started reading and practicing basic things. Looking for my fire and to belong.
