King Warrior Magician Lover
« on: May 01, 2019, 07:53:30 am »
I've seen it recommended a lot here.
Has anyone had any success with the "Active Imagination Dialogue" technique they outline at the end? Or do you treat it purely as a "philosophical" book rather than a self-improvement one?

Also a general KWML discussion if there's anything y'all want to say about it.

I've been reading "The Sovereign Individual: Mastering the Transition to the Information Age" which was a book written in the late 90s I think, someone recommended it in the circles we frequent and I bought it on a complete whim, but its a very interesting book and "prophetic" in a way, as much as predicting that computers will change the world could be. Its a good book for two reasons, it kind of lays out the sort of skills you will need to develop in order to survive in the future environment. It also gives you an outlook of the lay of the land in the future, what your environment will be like, what role will government actually serve, etc. It seems like it might be a nice tie in book with KWML, I mean that is a book that people have been reading for 30 years now without the imminent thread of having their job automated by a computer, this book I am talking about was written 10 years later with a tech focus

anyways didnt mean to throw you off the scent here, this is just the book I am reading right now, and again recommended to me within these circles and i immediately bought it on a whim because i havent read anything in a while. it didnt dissapoint yet

Sounds interesting. It does seem like it could tie in with KWML in the sense that it's about what we need to do to adapt to modern problems... I'll make a note of it

Glad you checked it out. I don’t do the dialogue thing cause I don’t have the imagination or concentration to go through with it but I have developed rituals to commune with the different aspects and I use images of kings, warriors etc to visualize the ideal, right now I’m reading Gilgamesh as a companion to KWML and I’ve had a lot of insights to the meaning especially after reading Iron John which I also strongly recommend. I watch a lot of low budget 80s ninja movies as well, they have a certain earnestness about them that I like and they are centered around living lawful lives (in the sense of the ninja code, not like the legal law system)

That sounds like a good way to handle the "invocation" they outline.
I'll probably have to spend more time on it all to fully get the value from the book but even reading it the first time, I was identifying with a lot of what they were saying.
I'll give Iron John a look, thanks

I’ve tried a lot of other self help stuff and was in therapy for a while and had meds and tried psychedelics etc but the jungian psychomythological method has really worked for me where everything else has failed and I have a suspicion that it’s because it speaks to things I was aligned with very early on, especially the aesthetic of kings and warriors and magicians and wild men and gods and monsters, my earliest memories are of playing with LEGO castle sets, building kingdoms and designing the army and identifying the bad guys, I’m autistic

I'm curious, do some of you guys watch Elisha Long on youtube, or are these books just a meme in self improvement circles?

I haven't heard of him, but yeah, KWML is a staple "reading' in almost every self-help community for men to can find.
Sam also talked about it, Charls probably has read it as well given what he often talks about, so it has some MDE relevance.

Cool. I've been meaning to check it out. The idea of maintaining balance between these archetypes and the different ways they express themselves is neat. I'm currently reading The Way of Men. I have Meditations next to me too. I've been thinking a lot about self-improvement and actively self-improving for a little over a year now. I want to incorporate these themes into the fiction I'm writing.

Yeah I quit drugs a year ago, I drink a little more than I should but not excessively. The drug lobby is designed to induce anxioparanoic hysteria in otherwise intelligent but neurotic  people

Canada recently legalized marijuana, which is literally just meant to make the goy cattle stupid and unable to recognize who the Jewish rulers are. I am guessing there are some tokers on this board and I don't mean to initialized anxiety, turmoil, depression etc, but you should also quit for reasons beyond politics. Lastly, you develop a lot of tolerance immediately to weed and it becomes a second state of sobriety that costs a lot of money. I remember when I was smoking, I would only be "high" for about 5 minutes and then I would just get super tired and lazy for the rest of the day.

People actually get higher when they are sober, it's just that you have to do things that are interesting and mind bending. Like reading OP's book for example. Or in the long term learning how to meditate, which is the opposite polarity of drug use but a lot harder, super sobriety, you can see images of objective reality. Visions from drugs are subjective infradimensional perceptions.

Now all that being said, even having not smoked weed for many years, I constantly think about wanting to smoke it. That's how I judge if I am making progress, the more my desire to smoke it (to relieve stress) goes up, the more progress I know I am making. I never actually ever smoke it though, that's just my pressure gauge that I try to keep high.
