Trying to read "Making Magick" by Edain McCoy........Just to get a witch's perspective. To see if I'm missing an edge.
They have killed my Gods, so now I am going to kill some of theirs.

Since your profile says that you're a ceremonialist, you're referring to a book by a Neo-Pagan author, and this thread seems to be about what people on Eastern paths are reading, you might be considered a bit off topic, although that would be for the moderator of this particular forum to decide. But if you want to compare whatever path you're on to Neo-Pagan ideas on witchcraft, I'd suggest that you try reading something by an author who's considered to have some credibility - maybe someone like Janet or Stewart Farrar, Gavin Bone or Marian Green. Just a suggestion.

It's OK, this time *shakes fist* :P

Besides, you were not the first to post random, non-eastern books in here. Though, when posting from "todays posts" or "new posts" it's always wise to check where the post is at.

I edited the title of the thread to refect it's location. Maybe it'll help...

Like a teatray in the sky.

The Beloved, by Osho

A book where his discourses are inspired by the Bauls. Free poetry forcused on the "essential man" and Osho's always contradictory and conflicting approach to things. Very interesting.

Just finished 'American Gods' by Neil Gaiman. I would strongly recommend this book to anyone interested in paradigm piracy.
