To be totally honest i´m beginning to be tired of other esotericists


Even some that i respect highly are starting to sound like crackpots.

The whole “occult” scene is looking more and more like Evangelical wingnuts with their psuedo history and pet therories and just like there are those that profess “love” in the name of Christ, but to anyone obviously filled with hate, bigotry and intolerance, esoterics, mystics and magicians often make claims to resisting their lower ego, when anyone can see that the whole “Golden Dawn” war and similar occurances are nothing if not ego based.

International Order Of Wingnuts


I cant help but feeling that most Esoteric orders and Pagan organisations are starting to seem more and more like absolutist Churches . Everyone monopolizing some “truth” ( philosophical poppycock) and being in contact / lineage or otherwise authorized by someone kewler than who authorized the others.

I usually do not use a vibrato when i intone the names. Sounds nice and sacral.
Very impressive how the Imperator greets people in English, Dutch, Spanish, Portuguise, French and Swedish.

How come that wherever there are two enlightened, loving, tolerant and wise people, there is also a conflict?


I am seriously contemplating calling what i do something else in order to not be associated with anyone else = not be required to explain or defend everything i think or do, nor being affected by any idiocy said or done in a name plastered on me.

I could leave others to the “I´m more realer than you are realer” fight.

After all, i dont call what i do anything to myself.

Simply saying Svensk Hedendom (Swedish Heathenry) instead of heathenry or Asatru would still describe it in an understandable way. However, i would probably be acused of claiming to be more “Swedish” in my heathenry than other Swedish heathens (not my goal. Not true either, there is no typical “Swedish” form of heathenry).

I could call the Western Mysteries something like Contemporary Theurgy or Post Golden Dawnian Ceremonial Mysticism.

Ahhh, what the hell, i´ll just call the whole thing Baboombaah!
