LOYAL BRETHEREN OF THE B.O.N.D
I bid you welcome, in the manner which has become sacred to our Rite, to our most portentous triginta unus thread. Ostara month is still upon us and we also anticipate the upcoming Mayday celebrations (on which I will attempt to find & link a working stream of "The Wicker Man" (1973) as I think that would provide a most suitably thematic matinee)
I also propose that the upcoming mayday celebrations also be marked with an evening festival of musicposting and general mirth (We can bring FPT forward or have both - can be decided upon nearer the time.
Despite the attacks of (1)'s and the occasional wall of redtext schizophrenic spam, the B.O.N.D continues to thrive & extend its sphere of influence. Shills and mentally ill threadshitters off their elixers are no match for might of the B.O.N.D!
TWO AND A HALF YEARS AND COUNTING CUNTS
…and no signs of slowing down either. Posting has remained quality and more potential Initiates find us each thread. The seeds have been sown for a New Order to take back The Old Ways from the leftist crusties, LARPers and pink haired weirdos who currently sully its grand legacy.
GARDNARIAN WICCA WE COME FOR YOU! THE WORLD SHALL BE CLEANSED FROM YOUR TAINT & YOUR DOGMA EXPUNGED
We are but now a sapling but, in the right conditions, the humble sapling can grow into a mighty oak whos branches spread far and wide into the heavens. We must strive for improvement and the acquisition of knowledge on a daily basis all the while. slowly chipping away at the encrusted fungal rot that infests society and elements of the very ether itself.
Busy as ever on the lodge front with much discussion, banter, .pdf posting and new interest. Topics of note, long with the usual historicism , divination and leylinery, have been infused with talk of entities/spirits, their nature and their relationship to man, to us and to the ether. It is a topic I look forward to continuing ITT. Also we must endeavour to invigorate our fellow anons and enlighten them where we can. In the spiritual vacuum the traitor class have created, a grounded sense of spirituality is important (less one fall to defeatism & materialistic nihilism) and gives the bearer hope, faith and something to aid him in the great minecraft fight to come - some spiritual armour so to speak.
This threads governing arcana is that of the IX card - the Hermit.
This card reveals an old man carrying a staff in one hand and a lit lantern containing a six-pointed star in the other. The Hermit suggests a phase of introspection where the Adept is drawing their attention inwards and looking for answers within. It signifies the need of a period of inner reflection, away from the current demands of position.
Upright the card represents soul-searching, introspection, solitude, meditation, self-reflection and a purposeful withdrawn from society. Reversed the card has connotations pertaining to being a misfit autist, withdrawing from loved ones, exile, sadness & loneliness. Its afflilated element is that of Earth and its Planet, Mercury - both if which shall also govern this thread.
Look forward to a Mercurial thread lads. Always interesting…
