Introducing Myself

Greetings, Friends :-)

You will probably all be delighted to hear that Theosophy is a subject I have much to learn about and that I probably have virtually nothing to contribute to discussion threads except queries and probes for deeper understanding, if that.

I consider myself to be spiritually eclectic and am constantly trolling the waters in search of signs of intelligent life after work.  I have been on a self-study path, exploring a variety of occult and mysticism topics, becoming familiar in a general way with Theosophy, since 1970.  

What got me started on my path was a correspondence course in astrology from the Rosicrucian Fellowship and my first deck of tarot cards (Rider-Waite), progressing to the Thoth Tarot (Crowley-Harris), and subsequently exploring the differences in philosophy of the four most popular tarot deck authors who based their decks on the western kabalah.  This led me to inquire into the history of tarot and specifically the spiritual-political movements of the time, ascended masters, and a lot of other stuff including religions and cultures of the world.  

I still use the Qabalistic Tarot for path working.  But to this day I probably cannot carry on an intelligent conversation about astrology because nobody shares a common frame of reference with me since I have such a negative visceral response to astrology in the forms it has come to take.  After inquiring into as many astrology systems as I could find to compare (why are there so many?) I finally settled on none of them, (re)turning to the real sky and indeed the whole of the Universe as the tap root of a hybrid system of my own (rogue that I am).  I don't have a "practice" of any sort.  I work for a living.  And I dabble :-) 

I am enjoying this list and have a great appreciation for all of your wonderful posts.  Thank you.
