knowing from other forums that you lean towards the
curmudeonly side of things. ... There is also, for
your communication conversation, the factor that a
person brings into a conversation their own baggage.
I worry about things that may be ridiculous. (which
is why i have a soft spot for people who may be seen
as crazy) One such thing is that other occultists see
ceremonial types (us) as being too arrogant; so I look
for little ways to make us a little more humble.
(which is why i speak up in defense of others, though
it seems to simply anger people) I wish there was
more unity between the ceremonials, the pagans, and
the phychics. Three parts of a whole.
Another thing I worry about is that neo-Paganism
(which is also us) is just a passing fad and not the
serious re-emergance of the Classical Religions like I
wish it were. Doubt I'll ever see a Temple of Jupiter
as I walk through a US town, or go to a Veneralia
The idea seems to scare the pagans I've known.
(does it relate? does it disrelate? does it matter?)

like they were copied by illiterates too many times.
Historically, few people were even educated enough to
read, and folk-magics tend to come from the uneducated
places where superstition was normal. It might not
have much importance when it comes to practical magic.

differently. It's not easy doing something like that;
there is a lot of social pressure to "get serious".
The world isn't as dull as it is by accident, y'know.
