Re: Why Lead a Virtuous Life?

I saw one also, Wow! That's great to hear! :o I have a question: did you happen to feel pervaded by a "music"? Because that's how I felt when I saw the entity just for a few seconds: I was completely "run through" by a sort of majestic music, which made me feel ecstatic, euphoric. It seemed to radi...

Re: Why Lead a Virtuous Life?

Almost none of them realizes it, but they will eventually become either angels or demons. I have a question about that: certain beings I've seen on my shamanic journeys are far more powerful than humans, whether they be helpful or hostile. So how could any human attain this level? It's a complex qu...

Re: Above, Below, Within: Gnosticism and Witchcraft

I must say it: the way I enter that "dimension" is tremendously similar to the way Lúthien practices gnosis, the way she journeys to Valinor. That is one of the reason why I am convinced that gnosis is a good way to find objective truths: it reminds my way of finding them, at least as explained by t...

Re: Above, Below, Within: Gnosticism and Witchcraft

I have to add a note here, for everyone: when - in that process - I close my eyes, it's obvious that there is something that my subconscious does - it's not just "closing eyes and imagining". I omitted it, as it's complicated to explain. But this universe "behind my eyes" responds independently, I'm...

Re: Above, Below, Within: Gnosticism and Witchcraft

I'd need to see an example of that technique. Otherwise, although I can certainly understand your words, I can't attach them to anything. I can only tell you about my experience. For me it's been all about making my mind do very specific things, which would then lead to visible and factual results....

Re: Why Lead a Virtuous Life?

I just read all the article. It's beautiful to see there is still someone who enjoys making such profound reflections. Redemption is a concept forged by men, it springs from the inability of our culture to live without the concepts of "fault" and "punishment". I think that a being who can identify i...

Re: Above, Below, Within: Gnosticism and Witchcraft

The problem is Moderns tend to believe, falsely, that science applies to everything. As more of a pure mathematician, it is perhaps easier for me to see this error in judgement directly. Aren't you, with this statement, implying that science (as we know it) is NOT the best key to understanding ever...

Re: My songs

A Vinyaquenya song I’ve always cherished in my heart… https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UnOM-UIhb_g&feature=youtu.be Below the original lyrics you can find the English translation (warning: it’s not literal and there are some periphrases which a native speaker may consider strange.

Re: Above, Below, Within: Gnosticism and Witchcraft

In my opinion "supernatural" is a word bound to a world we ought to leave behind: the world in which "nature" means "all we know and can explain" and everything beyond this is "supernatural"... S) There may be a thousand different realities, but there is only one nature. Which implies that nothing i...

Quite interesting stuff, though I can’t comment on the linguistics, being familiar with Sindarin only.

I definitely like the Vinyaquenya poem! The Valarin text is just too unfamiliar for me.
Wow, thank you! :D
It's the first time you say you like something I write, I'm touched! :blush2:

Re: Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

Hi Mildir, I’m not sure if you mean that there are other posts by you re. Markus’ thesis other than the ones in this topic? No no, I only found a bit strange that you had moved these posts to "Mildir's gnosis" when there wasn't really any reference to me or my gnostic experience... :D Thank you for...

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

Maybe "Not Specified Further" would be a more appropriate section for this discussion: I've mentioned a personal experience in one line of my last post (and only to relate it to Davidsen's theory), I don't think this makes the last seven posts "Mildir's gnosis". Davidsen's thesis is a subject of int...

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

Despite their fictional basis, fiction-based religions are genuine religions because the activity and beliefs of which they consist refer to supernatural entities which are claimed to exist in the actual world. As such, fiction-based religions can be contrasted with fandom which, as a form of play,...

Discussion re. Markus Davidsen’s thesis

reading it will teach you nothing about gnosis or Tolkien. Well, I'll give it a look all the same (when people mention Tolkien in the same breath as spirituality there is always something interesting). Thank you for the information. :) Well, show me!
