Valiente was right when she wrote that if what you seek can't be found within, it won't be found without. On the other foot, it's not always easy to look inside properly! That's a good half of meditation, relaxation and divination practice. A week ago, after demonstrating my slightly-better-than-average knowledge on 'pagan survivals', I was asked: 'Why, and how, do you know this kind of stuff?' To me, that's a demonstration of Valiente's statement in practice. I had the desire to know more about the craft, so I went out to supplement my knowledge. Without the desire from within, you won't find the knowledge you could use from the outside world. In my case, it took a lot of wandering around, looking under rocks, but the desire, the spark, came from me. I spent far too many hours jamming my eyes in front of the computer screen, reading articles, lurking in tC, reading posts and hundreds of comments on NonFluffyPagans, then spent a lot of hard-earned money on books (more than I like to admit) - but I'd do it again, to be honest. Even the books I found laughable, useless, shallow and cringeworthy, I learned something from.

I've heard many times that, if this is your path, it won't be easy. There are really good times, when the lightbulbs come on and the neurons fire across connections you didn't even know existed. Then there are the ass-hard days where I cry out of sheer frustration, feeling like I've been hitting my head against a brick wall for months and don't even have a bruised forehead to show for it. I do wish you the best of luck and a fruitful search.

Thank you so much.  I hope my search is fruitful too.  After finding TC I feel like my resources are more rounded out and I can find books, etc. that will help even that much more.  I sort of feel settled now so that I can begin the next phase of studying and learning.  I look forward to it very much!

btw ... Happy Birthday  Grin
