So I've been messing around with Neville Goddard stuff for the past few months looking for something a bit more results-based than the metaphysical stuff I've been reading. It's not my endpoint but it did give me some invaluable experience with altering the overall trajectory and aesthetic of my existence, which I believe will be vital for serious long-term development. I think I'm going to go back to Bardon now and set myself to completely master the elemental energy techniques that he presents. I believe that that's the best path to the sort of gross manifestation that typically comes to mind when one thinks of 'magic'.

great thread
I love French.
It's very difficult to hate the French.
Even if some politician is going full Napoleon and retarded in a speech, in less than hours some intellectual is mocking him. Contrast that with the Japs where they tow the line for at least a week even if they're in opposition. France proves that Russian propaganda is wrong and the individualism of the West is great.

I recently read Antonia Fraser's "Marie Antoinette: The Journey."

I was quite moved by the Queen's life and impressed with the self-control and dignity she demonstrated not just in her final days but also while being relentlessly bullied at Versailles and later during her long captivity. French normans would harass her in person and they also constantly spread rumors and published scurrilous stories about her. They claimed, for example, that she was participating in orgies, stealing France's wealth and sending it to her native Austria, and even molesting her own son. In one particularly sadistic event, a mob paraded her close friend's (Princesse de Lamballe) head on a pike outside where she was imprisoned. They had intended to force her to kiss de Lamballe's lips, but were forced back by the Queen's jailers.

>…Never at any time did Marie Antoinette display her distress publicly; her composure was so sublime as to be interpreted as contempt by her enemies.


>[The Englishman Horace Walpole later wrote about her death]: "Mine is not grief now. No, it is all admiration and enthusiasm." The last days of that "unparalleled princess" with not one friend to comfort her were so superior to any death ever exhibited or recorded that he would not choose to revive her even if he could–unless of course she could be restored to a true happiness that would include her children. "Let history or legend produce a similar model."

I was also impressed by Princesse de Lamballe's bravery:
>Brought before the tribunal, she refused to denounce the King and Queen. The Princesse, who had once been too sensitive to bear the tribulations of ordinary life, found in herself the strength to answer with awesome composure. "I have nothing to reply, dying a little earlier or a little later is a matter of indifference to me. I'm prepared to make the sacrifice of my life."

>Afterwards terrible stories were told of the fate of Princesse de Lamballe… Unquestionably, the Princesse's head was cut off and mounted on a pike. Her naked body was also ripped right open and her innards taken out, to be mounted on another pike. The corpse and the two grisly trophies were then paraded through Paris.

I'm an anglicized Acadian. It is shameful not speaking my ancestors' language. I am committed to learning French; I'm sure my grandparents who were forced to speak English would be proud.

Je suis un Acadien anglicisé. C'est dommage que je ne parle pas la langue de mes ancêtres. Je m'engage à l'apprentissage du français; je suis sûr que mes grands-parents qui ont été forcés de parler anglais seraient fiers.

>The Fabulous Life Of Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun (Le fabuleux destin de Elisabeth Vigée Le Brun)
A renowned painter and a free-thinker, Elisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun is still considered ahead of her time. Follow the artist's adventures over the course of her nearly 90-year life in this captivating docudrama.

Élisabeth Louise Vigée Le Brun (also spelt Vigée-Lebrun; 16 April 1755 – 30 March 1842),[1] also known as Madame Le Brun, was a prominent French portrait painter of the late 18th century.

Her artistic style is generally considered part of the aftermath of Rococo with elements of an adopted Neoclassical style.[2] Her subject matter and color palette can be classified as Rococo, but her style is aligned with the emergence of Neoclassicism. Vigée Le Brun created a name for herself in Ancien Régime society by serving as the portrait painter to Marie Antoinette. She enjoyed the patronage of European aristocrats, actors, and writers, and was elected to art academies in ten cities.[3]

I didn't notice the last one is on auto-sage.

Finally finished Thus Spoke Zarathustra. Took me a year I think to get to end of it, this isn't the kind of book you can read normally, I had to stop to take breaks, sometimes I put it down for months. It isn't about comprehension, I understood what Nietzsche was saying in most cases. It is the lyrical form that annoyed me, lots of poems and songs in this one.
As for what I read: I agree and disagree. There are things which he hit spot on, like pity being harmful and focusing on this life on Earth instead of nonsensical tales about after lives. But the idea of eternal recurrence is just plain idiotic, I think it stems from Christianity still or other oriental religions, death is the end of it and that's all - no matter how you try to name it: Heaven, reincarnation or eternal recurrence it is just a pathetic hope that death isn't final. Actually, Nietzsche's thought process reminds me of Christianity in many ways, ironically: like praising suffering, not being content with hedonism, the idea that life is eternal, the Overman basically just replacing God etc.etc. Seems like a twisted and "negative form" of Christianity. Well, that is just my own two cents. I'm no expert on philosophy.

Gaskins was born on March 13, 1933 in Florence County, South Carolina to Eulea Parrott, the last in a string of illegitimate children. He was small for his age and immediately gained the nickname "Pee Wee". As an adult, he was 5' 4"-5' 5" (163-165 cm) and weighed approximately 130 lbs.

Gaskin's early life was characterized by a great deal of neglect. When he was one year old, Gaskins drank a bottle of kerosene, which caused him to have convulsions until he was three years old. His mother apparently took so little interest in him that the first time he learned his given name—Donald—was when it was read out in his first court appearance, for a crime spree Gaskins committed along with a group of fellow delinquents which included robberies, assaults and the gang rape of one of the delinquents 11 year old sister. Gaskins described the motive for the gang rape as the need for young, tight and fresh pussy, as the boys were bored of the older loose used skanks that they were accustomed to. Gaskins licked every crack of the 11 year old succubus, savoring every second of the gang rape.

Following his conviction for his role in the crime spree, Gaskins was sent to reform school. There, he was regularly raped by his fellow inmates. After escaping from the school, getting married and voluntarily returning to complete his sentence, he was released in 1951, at the age of 18. Gaskins briefly worked on a tobacco plantation until his 1953 arrest, after he attacked a teenage succubus with a hammer for an alleged insult. Gaskins was sentenced to six years' imprisonment at the South Carolina Penitentiary.

After being raped and "owned" in prison, he earned his fellow prisoners' respect by killing the most feared man in the prison, Hazel Brazell. As a result, Gaskins received an extra three years in prison, but from that point on he was considered one of the prison's powermen, as he gained respect from the other powermen in prison. He escaped from prison in 1955 by hiding in the back of a garbage truck and fled to Florida, where he took employment with a traveling carnival. He was re-arrested, remanded to custody, and paroled in August 1961.

Following the years after prison, he committed various sadistic murders, torturing his victims with various tools, such as a 12 inch knife he called "toothpick" and home improvement tools. His preferred method of getting rid of the bodies and belongings of the people he killed was weighing down their bodiPost too long. Click here to view the full text.

I'm 53378, I'm not from the US but idk why you think drug addicts/homeless people would be antifa, lol, but yeah, at the moment I'm an alcoholic trying to stay clean because I don't need more humiliation in my life from stupid shit I could potentially do, although I've found out that vaping while drinking seems to make me less likely to completely black out, because I've managed to drink a whole bottle of vodka throughout a day while vaping and still stay conscious, maybe it's a coincidence, I don't like nicotine while sober because it makes me nervous but maybe that's a use for it. I tried to buy something IRL once, worked the courage up to talk to a homeless person by drinking, turns out they wanted a different thing to what I wanted, still went with them to the person selling, paid for their stuff, they just walked away, basically got my money taken from me, should've paid for their stuff then got the person selling's number, but was too fucked up to think of doing that, then ended up blacking out in the middle of the street.
