alright let me start with where my life is heading... I've decided to embark on a journey that I have been putting off for a while... I've always wanted to do it but just kept making excuses why I shouldn't... I'm going to go vagabond for a while... as in voluntary homelessness drifting from placed to place based off my divination and just where life points me to partake the next adventure... I'm taking about 3 to 6 months to prepare for the journey... learning some much needed skills such as flintknapping, trapping, how to make tools, how to make money on the road, things I could use to be a street performer, getting better a parkour and climbing, things to watch out for and things to avoid... I'm also using this time to hone my abilities as a sorcerer and magician, actually to be honest... it's one of the primary motivations for this journey... to completely survive based off both my ability to adapt and my ability to influence reality via the will...
so I guess I'll be devoting this discussion to all things magickally practical lol... spells, formulae, enchantments, etc. based on finding food, water, shelter, how to find adventure, sex, money, cures to disease or healing,and the especially lovely oh shit spells that could save your life in a crisis... any inquiries under this broad subject matter are greatly appreciated, and if you have it, personal experiences where you either lived in a situation similar or used these types of workings in a crisis of your own, in whatever form of crisis you found your self in...
I have quite a bit of knowledge already in most of these areas but I always appreciate new ideas, valuable input from those more experienced, and any bit of knowledge that could one day prove useful...
adieu and happy discussing
I agree. I've been homeless a lot, especially in my childhood, I do not ever want to be homeless again. It's a hard life, when I see things like this sometimes I get so disgusted. Voluntary homelessness and involuntary are two very different things. Involuntary homelessness was never a pleasant experience for me. Having nothing was horrible.
This is the worst thread I've ever seen on this entire forum. I cannot believe people are actually romanticizing this bull shit. Buddhists actually put productive things and work back into the world, so their begging can be a form of "payment" since they take care of things no one else will like animals and orphans. This, this is just insulting to me. I cannot think of a thread more insulting I've ever seen.
Living as a homeless vagabond is not a cake walk. When you're desperately trying to survive you will not get other things such as education or hardly any form of luxuries.
So, you're a masochist.
So let me get this straight...you're a sociopath, and you want the rest of us to give you spells & whatnot to help you prey off the innocent victims you'll meet in your travels.
For all we know, he's a serial killer off on his next spree. I find myself wondering how folks around here would feel if that were the case, and they helped with such a project.
True. And this place should be a buffet.
First thing a sociopath does is try and make you trust them. In fact, they are obsessed with it.
If you are truly a sociopath, why wouldn't you declare yourself on the internet? Because it isn't logical? It doesn't make sense? If you're a sociopath, YOU'RE CRAZY, being illogical doesn't matter.
Sociopaths lack any conventional notion of honor, and their loyalty is easily purchased by the highest bidder. Your victims may not have deserved it at all, because your view is severely skewed. That's just how it is when you lack a conscience. Sociopaths have a very nasty habit of overreacting to the slightest of offenses, and seeking ultimate revenge for them.
Translation - you're not the first one I've encountered.
One of the symptoms of a sociopath is not learning from experience. So this little adventure of yours is going to teach you what?
Stick with volunteering at homeless shelters, is what I suggest and to get your adrenaline rush, may I suggest bungy jumping or sky diving.
More than once I have taken such a walkabout. I found it a tremendous learning experience.
The skills I found most useful were listening to my senses, good humor at my own foibles and getting along with other people. Obviously some practical stuff regarding health and diet, staying warm and dry.
Along the way you will find that some of what you think is important isn't, some of what you think isn't is, and the only way to learn that is in the doing. Be humble and learn from the people you meet along the way.
The best 'oh shit' spell I know is the heel and toe spell... hehehe...
May you have a fruitful journey!
I could admire this Icarus if you had some sort of financial base. Like wandering monks, they always have some place to turn if things go bad, however, it appears you don't. Think about how you're going to care for yourself if you get sick and the weather gets bad and there are no jobs to be had.
It must be fun when you have so much money and stability in your life that you can actually have the luxury of choosing to become homeless as a lifestyle.
Benefits of homelessness:
If this sounds like a vacation this is the life for YOU.
