This place has become a second home for me. It seems I have found my own world.
Since my early childhood, I have never accepted the norms of the religion I have been born to (though I respect Jainism a lot for the invaluable spiritual gain I have received from it). I never fond any trustworthy definition of God there and I searched to find truth in Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Buddhism,etc. No one told me anything that was reliable. Most are dependent on History which can never be trusted(specially when it has been documented after centuries of actual happening of events). I found out that only reliable source was in me- my soul. My journey of knowledge and truth started from the day I realized I cannot accept the truths of others. I believe truth is relative and varies from person to person.
One day when I felt I have known much for one life, I came across magic and witchcraft. Things changed. Now I have lot more to learn and do- do mistakes, learn form them, live like a human should. I know more clearly my aims of life, my conversations with God are more clear.
Since my joining in last month, Witch school has helped me a lot. I met like minded people, learnt a lot, came to know about many things I was unaware of. It is amazing to know that when I once used to think that I don't belong to the people in the world, I now know that there are a lot of people like me here. I feel I have a place on the Earth. lol
I am reading a book "Conversations with God" by Neale Donald Walsch as mentioned in the course "Advanced Symbolism and Manifestation" and I feel more thankful to this world than ever. The things mentioned in the book are like my own conversations. They reflect my own experiences, and I feel overwhelmed by seeing my thoughts laid down on paper(okay on the screen!).
I felt to thank all of you here for making this wonderful community resource.
(And I mean it!)

Merry Meet, Opal! I've been on a couple of threads with you here in the forum, and I like your style - LOL! I feel much the same about WSI and the people I've met virtually~ Those I've interacted with are a well-informed, lively bunch of people, and I enjoy having somewhere I can discuss some of these topics with my peers~ thank yourself, too, Opal - your presence is part of the Whole, you know!
Awwww.. love WS! specially when there are people like you :)
YAY! This is a wonderful happy post. I too am so glad for the chat room, the discussion, the radio show, the positive interaction, encouragement, knowledge and EVERYTHING. Proud to be a witch and proud to share this with all of you!
lol! yeah.. and also so many things are there to learn here!
It is you that are a blessing to us.
My life is genuinely enhanced by knowing folks like you.
I am grateful to you for your Bravery to step up and out of your natural safety zone and Be with us Witches.
Thank you ,Thank You ,Thank you Beautiful Opal Adva, and Blessed Be
It is Multi cultural lessons, such as yours that make us feel Proud and full of Love you bring with you a Unique Gift and Beauty
You praised and thanked me too much! *blush*
Actually it is not me but the people in this secret world(I call it this way, you see) and the researches they have undergone that have helped me and all of us a lot. I have no one to teach me but myself, and knowing folks like you who are ready to help always has been an achievement for me. Thank you too!
The problem in my homeland is that there are many who claim to be spiritually advanced but only a few who actually are. The people either worship them(calling them saints) or condemn them(calling them witches, etc). I have a lot to learn here and am going to gain knowledge as well as spread it to those seeking with blessings of people like you.
(*blush* again! lol)
It was very late I was feeling emotional haha!
I am a writer and a songwriter In fact I was writing last night and feeling the emotions of it..
I sometimes throw myself completely into my characters when I write, I will actually act it out (and hope no-one is watching haha!)) Physically.
I don't write in front of a keyboard I pace around the room acting out scenarios.
Anyway Your Welcome
lol. You are interesting fellow.
p.s. i am over my blushing now.. hehe
You were writing or enacting?? :p
I was doing both.
but when I was speaking to you I was being genuine. -Blessed Be
I understand that. Actually I used to do the same thing but stopped after there was no time for enacting out my own plays.
Thank You so much..I hope we can continue to be of service.
With so many thankful souls, you will sure be. Thank you again.
