Hi
This is not a real depression thread
This is rather a question I have, and given the person I am, and the environment I live in, I find no other place to ask such questions. Not even in 4chan which is raided now by plebbit refugees and IQ faggots. Anyway, I would like to ask you if it happens for anyone to know a place where things out of this world can be learnt, but kept as dark secrets. When I talk about place, I don't mean online ressources. But actual mages/teachers/hermits/anchorites etc that could have some knowledge hidden from the world.
I know it feels like an NPC question who watched some films about tibetan monks or some western glorification of Inca mages. But it really is not.
I am not the superstitious kind at all, I am actually a math graduate student, not to brag, but to sincerely say that I am not really into esoteric, non-existent magical stuff. It's just the excessive realism of the world that cripples me and makes me genuinely depressed every moment I touch something whose physical properties are nothing out of the ordinary.
Thank you for all your suggestions. You can help an old man like me who's about to die to discover a new meaning about his life.

>This is not a real depression thread
Then why are you posting this in /dep/? There are other boards as well.
>4chan is raided now by IQ faggots.
Then you brag out about being a math graduate which has nothing to do with the whole thread.
>I don't mean online ressources. But actual mages/teachers/hermits/anchorites
Everything you need is on the internet. There's no secret knowledge hidden by homeless people or shaman in Africa. Why do you think they know better?
>It's just the excessive realism of the world that cripples me and makes me genuinely depressed.
That's a really good starting point. Have you tried get into philosophy?

>not real depression
I mean, it is kind of related to my existential crisis and how I feel so tourmented by the absence of quintessential power or any metaphysical presence in this world. It feels like it is nothing but a mute stone than only replicates more grey souless stones
>I brag
I said I had no intention to brag, I thought it might be a useful information to say I am not into metaphysical things, or at least I were not. I tried my best though not to make my readers feel so.
>no shamans
that's exactly what i was searching for, I just needed to say it differently so that no one laughs at me
>am I into philosphy
yes, I read a lot of epistemology.

For anyone reading the OP wondering what the question was:
>I would like to ask you if it happens for anyone to know a place where things out of this world can be learnt, but kept as dark secrets.
OP, are you sure you don't just want to participate in the occult thread? >>>/hob/50683 . It is about to get pushed off of the board and needs a bump. I would suggest to simply post there.

>to evade reality
You don't get into this stuff to "evade reality", esoteric, occult and spiritualist stuff helps us to expand our horizons and perceptions of Reality exactly. It isn't some escapist little game we play.

Like the other guy said, everything is on the internet. Most gurus, priests or personal guides just exploit people for their money and obedience. You don't need that.

Read philosophy, read about myths and religions on your own. Train your mind and soul, gain knowledge and wisdom. Reach Enlightenment on your own, by your own merit. You don't need any shepherds.
If you are absolutely clueless then start with Plato. He is a good start for beginners of mysticism generally.

If you put in the work and get good at this stuff it will be more real than what you currently see as reality.

not exactly sure why you are interested in the occult. studying race science/philosophy/history/conspiracy theories is a great way to sink time in something that is out of the mainstream but somewhat grounded

 No.261246

you will like Aghori philosophy,basically they say shiva(god)is in ALL things. thus they literally eat human corpse's flesh and rotten poop.
its weird,but its also very "metal".like a goregrind album made into a religious,monastic philosophy.
Im sure you can contact a naga saddhu trough cellphone if you use google+indian pages(like those where you list services,etc(.!

truth is subjective. if you were to putting yourself in the mindset of someone that lived a million years ago youd be more in tune with nature. in that sense some knowledge is kept secret by people that have passed away. the same way we have a certain type of understanding about the world in which we live.

Campers and backpackers that get lost in the forest. If you get lost at sea there's other stuff you use.
