A New Years Message

The Holidays bring in new energy and the promise of a future life. In the darkest times the divine spark of light fires our imaginations and gives us the inspiration to go on. Small wonder we make resolutions for new beginnings at this time of year. At the same time we try to be near loved ones and family to share support and thanksgiving.

It's hard to believe Anarchist World is only three months old. It's also hard to believe some of the changes that have occured and that are in the works. What started out as a place for like minded people has become much more than that. The community portion of Anarchist World is still in its infancy. People are still trying to find out if they are comfortable here or not. This coming year will prove very interesting in terms of how the community portion grows.

In the meantime it is becoming a clearing house where I am posting a variety of posts on a variety of subjects and the new reader might well wonder just who I am. In the truest sense my words must speak for themselves and people will be drawn to them or repelled by them according to their own natures and values.

In a larger sense this site is about personal empowerment and individual freedom. I am uniquely suited to share some of the things I have learned over the years.

I grew up on a farm in northern Minnesota in a family with strong religious values and a strong work ethic. At the age of eighteen I was drawn to the metaphysical and philosophical teachings of the Rosicrucian Order AMORC. For twenty two years I received weekly monographs and instruction until completing the 12th Degree studies. Although no longer affiliated with AMORC I remain a Rosicrucian elder and strongly influenced by the Rosicrucian teachings.

As a walking question mark I studied other branches of the self-help and self-empowerment community including self hypnosis, Neuro Linguistics Programming, Scientology, Neo-Tech and the philosophy of objectivism.

Real world training included an Associate of Science degree in Survival and Rescue Operations from the Community College of the Air Force and a Bachelors Degree in Psychology from Regents University of New York State. I worked as an in-home family crisis counselor and as a children's mental health social worker. I've been in the trenches with familes and individuals in crisis. I've also had my own troubles to work my way through.

Through the years I've retained a love of metaphysics and hard science. I have tried to integrate them both in meaningful ways. Another of my loves has been Freemasonry, a close associate of Rosicrucianism. I was initiated into the York Rite but have also loved and studied the works of Albert Pike and other gifted Masons.

The study of history is not complete without understanding the roles of Masonry and Rosicrucianism. For most of my life that has been my passion.

Now in mid life I've thrown most of my books away and rely instead upon my own internal authority and insights. I draw from personal experience and interpret old material in new ways. The knowledge I have to share comes from many places and is a curious mixture. Still, the knowledge is a universal knowledge that is available to anyone willing to listen to their own inner authority and follow their own inner path.

Anyone can be an Anarchist Knight!

bright blessings
