Happy December everyone, i've been on a two week sabbatical, resting and relaxing, and also trying to find a meaning and purpose in my life.
Two weeks ago, I met up with another member of the forum, Seecubedeye-- he came here to St. Louis all the way from Lawrence Kansas to attend a Rosicrucian meeting on 16th, and 17th century symbols== and how to USE them
Finally meeting another person from the forum in the 'real world' was a HUGE step for me... please understand that I'm an introvert, and used to be "scared" of putting myself out there to meet new people.
In this meetup between synchromystics, we hung out for 3 days and discussed everything under the sun.
Several of our discussions led us back to a few unescapable questions having to do with our quest here in the forum.
"What is the point of synchromysticism?" and "what do we hope to accomplish once you understand the phenomenon?"
These can be somewhat ugly questions to answer, but necessary to the mystic who has gotten themselves this deep in the mire already.
This is where I'm at on sychromysticism. All the synchs in movies, music, art, and real life are connected. This has been proved to me over and over again in this forum, on the blogs, in the news, and in my own real life in the physical world. But there is something more to it, than just "seeing" the synchs---- could it be that we're supposed to "tell" and "show" other people? I personally DON'T think so.
Other people, unless they are in our hogwarts school of synchromystics, literally don't understand, and don't appreciate all the hard work and studying involved === that we must do I should say=== and 9 times out of 10 dismiss our findings as "COINSCIDENCE"... lol
So what is the point of going to our school? What is the point of learning the interconnectivity of things, and proving it?
So, to me, the point of synchromysticism in this forum (and elsewhere) is providing PROOF via the internet, media, and news stories that the world is NOT as it seems, that magick is being practiced, and the "real world" is only as "real" as you want it to be. Taking pictures, movies, statements, and news stories to show the pattern--- to show that something strange is below the surface of our reality.
But there is something MORE that happens when the synch's start to occur!!! This is almost a magical quality to synchromysticism... that once you see the patterns, and once you realize they're not accidental... then the synchromystic hits the brick wall of philosophy.
The brick wall?
The brick wall, as I call it, is the second question... "what do I hope to accomplish" with the knowledge that has been (and is being) brought forth?
The answer for this is a subjective one---- once you start to produce your OWN synchs... and not just report on the synchs that are occuring elsewhere.. this is where you're forced to confront a sometimes uncomfortable notion...
That once you produce synch's, and experience this phenomenon firsthand, you must begin to wonder where they come from, and how you can actually use them to certain ends.
Can one fully manifest their own reality?
I believe the answer is YES--- but first you must "go to school" to develop your ability, and to know how it works.
This is where the forum comes into play. This is OUR school, this is our gathering place to share knowledge.
You must first learn about how the "secret societies" are using symbols and ritual to have the SAME outcome that we are getting. You must learn that synchs occur without the participants actually knowing they are doing anything. You must learn about stargates (physical and metaphorical), tarot, astrology, history, medicine, and government.
Basically, synchromysticism (the study of) has become a regular PhD in all things relating to the paranormal, and alternative history.
Synchromystics, unwittingly have become a NEW society, since the ultimate outcome is shaping our own reality based on "hidden" knowledge-- I believe we are MORE powerful than the other societies since we are free people with no obligations, who haven't taken oaths which deminish our power, which take away our freedom to share information with others.
The sharing information part is where the magic(k) begins~!
All this learning in our forum has proved to me, that once you get out of your shell, and truely BELIEVE these things are "reality"... then the REAL synch's in YOUR OWN life begin to happen.
Its like taking off the training wheels, and riding for yourself down the street. And just like riding a bicycle, once you learn, you'll never forget~!
This is where i'm at. I haven't even learned 1/10th of what is out there, thus I have a vested need to keep up with others discoveries and findings in this forum / blogs etc... but i've learned enough to know that this knowledge is GOLD... its valuable-- once you know how to use it!
Anyways, its good to be back, and I hope all is well with everyone in the forum.
