    Default The thing about occultism ...

    ... is that it is about learning to die.

    Has anyone else considered their studies in this light?

    Do you mean your perceptions of what guilt is laid upon us from parents, church, and society in general, to kill the ego, the part of us that is no longer needed as we travel our path. Do you mean learning how to leave the physical and seeing it as a wonderful journey into a new adventure?

    Maybe it's not about learning to die per se, but learning which parts of us to kill and which parts of us to ressurect, and the hardest part is developing the tools with which to perform such tasks. I think that is the most challenging aspect of it all...The Great Work indeed.

    but to cast of that which we want, is that not ego to begin with. I thing the question is "who am I" and "what is it"
    Man is invited to question, discover, explore,
    and manipulate the world around him and use it for his benefit.

    I believe that what dies is the idea that we are out physical bodies. Most people that believe in a soul or spirit will have an intellectual idea that they are not the body but that is way different than knowing it in your heart. When you know it in your heart you can face most anything without fear. The other thing it can show is the manner of your physical body's end. With this knowledge, you can compare what is happening at the moment to what you have seen and do what needs to be done to extricate yourself without thinking you might be killed.

    the true self is immortal with the death of shells.

    Death is part of living, it is easy to live but not that easy to die. I guess if I spent my every waking moment creating servitors because I couldn't deal with the real world, I would feel the same way you do. You are not living, you are existing through the stupid hobby you have, and have no idea what is real and not.
