Hidden truth, the occult and its lessons shared with me.

One of the gifts I cherish the most is consciousness as it leads to awareness. On that note I choose to share a little more of myself on a deeper level. I grew up surrounded with religion and hypocrisy, getting glimpses of goodness being surrounded by good people that walked through life with the blinders on. Tunnel vision clouded by selfishness.

I asked the questions that they were afraid to answer or confront the truth of the answer. I asked why were Tarot Cards evil? Why are psychics considered evil? Why is divination the work of the devil? My youth was a gift in many ways. As I reflect on growing up in a place where religion ruled, even in the country where there is supposed to be separation of church and state. Utah is a religious state! The L.D.S Religion in fact controls all that happens within its borders and has since it was formed by the Pioneers that devotedly followed their leaders and settled down in the beauty of the land.

Being somewhat of a rebel and Pandora’s Brother so to speak I had to open the box. The gifts in the box have been many and have added great depth expanding my nothingness to greater nothingness. For many my studies may seem evil yet the evils of my studies have given the gift of reality and love of all that exists.

The occult has fascinated me and I have reached the conclusion that the occult is in fact what we fear most.

The occult for me has been finding the hidden truth within thus allowing me to be me. I am a true unique as we all are and we hide our uniqueness with fear. Fear of what is hiding within ourselves that which we choose not to seek or acknowledge. Hidden within from our selfish views or perspectives is our inner truth.

I am grateful for the stories of others and the fear of the occult shared by my family and friends. The truth for me is that the occult is my questioning of myself to find my inner truth hidden within. If knowing my inner truth is evil then I am one evil individual. However I would ask those that would call me evil how well they know their inner self? I included the definition of occult that perhaps another perspective may lessen the fear of the occult in some aspects and reveal the true meaning for us as human beings. Are you hiding your inner truth behind the fear of the occult? Fear not your inner self and stop hiding it question and find your inner truth rather than fear what is hidden there.

I thank you for allowing me to share a thought or two and a little more of my inner truth. I recently posted a poem called “Within, and used the term “Chung Fu” it comes in the context used from the book of changes and means “Inner Truth”. I hope we can as human beings reach for our inner truth and share the love that we find there. Thank you for allowing me to share and it is my hope that we all can share some love and a smile making our world a better place for all we share it with. Please share a smile share your love and help make our world a better place for all we share it with. Be the change positive know yourself and share your love.

    • Sheri, you are awesome and a very kindred soul… In fact you my friend are my dream Queen and I adore you. Thank you for sharing your kind words here and in your writings. I am quite enchanted by your being! I would love to share a cup of coffee with you and just bathe in your light! Thank you for sharing your words and your love with me and all you touch!

    • Yes I have read about Mr. Crowley, His thoughts and his vision are quite unique and quite deep. His life story is fascinating. I was not quite trying to express the occult in the way of his vision just trying to express the thought of occult meaning ” the hidden”. It is however a fascinating perspective shared by Mr. Crowley who was brought to my attention by Ozzy! In his song titled and written for Mr. Crowley! Thank you for expressing your thoughts and taking the time to read and respond to my posts. I am honored you chose to do so!

  1. Isn’t funny, that the closer one comes to the truth, the more afraid we feel. If we could drop those fears and embrace what is life. I am a deeply spiritual person, but my religion taught me at a young age, that the supernatural world didn’t exist. My father told me, that in itself was a contradiction. Shortly after school, I beganb working at a law enforcement agency. The agents used a medium (the same one they had used for eight years) to help them solve cases, regarding missing adults and children. They would give this woman an article of clothing or personal object that belonged to the victim, and she would spend time holding it, then give them clues as to what could have happened. Nine times out of ten…she was spot on. It ripped my world wide open, and caused my mind to wonder. I have seen some pretty amazing things in this life. None of which can be fully explained. And to most religious people, would be dismissed as evil! But, the fact of the matter is, we are all made up of energy! And energy is power! We see that power working in this world, hidden beyond the veil of reality and peaking out every now and again. We will truly look forward to reading your future posts, and keeping up with you. Best of luck.

    • Thank you I am quite taken with your note and the sharing of your thoughts. It is an honor that you grace my page and my heart with your sentiment expressed. I am grateful for your taking the time to do so. Thank you!

  2. What a Great Post Joe, and thank you for sharing this with your readers.. being a Psychic and a Medium who to those less educated souls often call me by saying I work with the Devil… I would challenge them to seek the truth in their own religious books and seek out the passages where Jesus himself is a medium, who channelled and Healed the sick with laying on of hands.. Something I have shared within my life time… ” You can do this and more” I think were part of his words…
    Fear of anything stems from the Not knowing, and not understanding..
    We are each of us capable of such gifts, but have chosen to forget them. and then we have become indoctrinated to Fear them WHY?? well those who want to control do not want the mundane crowds of common people knowing that in fact they are all powerful beings who are capable of great things just by linking into that power of the Heart-mind that Christ-Consciousness which is within Each and everyone of us…
    We are all of us Special Beings of Light, some have held onto that light and live through love and service, while others have fallen and live from a point of Control and Greed ruling by Fear..

    I Fear NO one and Nothing.. and you know why Joe… Because we are BEings of Eternal Light… all of us upon our own Journey of discovery of understanding our own Lessons in this incarnation on Earth…

    Be proud of who you are… and the only Evil is in the minds of those who shut out the Light of Love.. Darkness is only the absence of Light… the absence of knowledge, and understanding and the Absence of LOVE..
    When Mankind can Love himself…. He will see then.. The LIGHT of Who he Really IS… in the World of I AM…. for we are ONE.. and we are gradually starting to join together as One thought within the Mass Consciousness where the Truth of ALL LIFE will be revealed..

    Many Blessings xxx
