Thank you for your comments and sharing your personal history, Soror.  Paul Case promoted Yoga, predominately relevant to breathing exercises.  You may have already found his references about breathing.  I don't recall where that is, but I do recall that I was told about how Yoga was his source for correct breathing, long before BOTA was BOTA.As for the chakra work we do, my observation of student's difficulties revealed that most difficulties are a result of what I have come to ...Continue Reading

Frater C, thank you for your words and supportive guidance. I appreciate it. Having studied various “approaches” in the past, it was different for me to focus solely on these lessons. Especially as, in the beginning, some of it was counter to the beliefs I held at the time. But I kept an open mind, and ultimately my practical experience with the lessons convinced me of their importance for me on my path. Two years ago, I started a yoga practice with a friend. It was supposed to “open my he ...Continue Reading

". . .true occult Order"?

May 17th 2018 7:50:05 p.m.

Most seekers of the hidden mysteries have as one of their outcomes a desire to know truth about what is or is not true.  We are "truth-seekers," and consequently we will apply some criteria to evaluating whether any organization is appropriate for our attention, aspiration, or homage.  For me the process was painful and arduous, spanning many years before I was finally steered to the front door of BOTA.  And for some like me back then, the early BOTA lessons were frightening to some extent ...Continue Reading

On another topic, I sent away for my signed copy of a novel about St. Peter."In 1939, a team of workers beneath the Vatican unearthed an early Christian grave. This surprising discovery launched a secret quest that would last decades — a quest to discover the long-lost burial place of the Apostle Peter."https://thefishermanstomb.com/book-summary/On a side note, if any students new to BOTA are curious, as I was-- and in hindsight I might regard those years as having been more uncons ...Continue Reading

I’m doing well if I can read the lesson three times in a week. However, I do have a Mac application, GhostReader, which I use to narrate a lesson so I can listen to it on my commute in the morning or evening. This helps it soak into the subconscious mind. What is equally important to the intellectual grasp of the lesson is the “technique” that accompanies so many of them. Make time, as best as you can, for these exercises. I find it convenient sometimes to print out a tableau as directed in t ...Continue Reading

Hi Tom! That's a beautiful job framing those keys, thanks for sharing. Did you color those keys?

I have known people who cut the color keys out of a Book of Tokens, and someone who scanned them to print and laminate in a small size so he could keep the key he was studying in his pocket or on his dashboard as he went through the day.I have the extra large tree of life poster on ...Continue Reading
