Alright, this is a bit of a rant. I do not know how many post there are from biased posters (for both spiritual and mundane) Now, I am not saying I know it all or have all the answers, but I Do have (Like EVERYONE else on this site) access to google and other search engines. More often than not people are going by what they learned growing up and haven't bothered to or even thought of looking farther into it.
I can not count the amount of posts that turn sour because someone goes on and states about demon possession (epecially lately...) or about how founded the paradigm of their religion they were raised in effects their view of things.
When it comes to things like possessions, ghosts, fae, demons, etc, people should try to find a mundane source BEFORE trying to find a spiritual source. More often than not, the possessions we hear about on the boards are being debunked with some simple psychology (understanding why the average person would react in x mannor) and then the OP taking offense to being told that the way they think is 'too spiritual' or that they are 'fluffy' or people go on and toy with them, when they ask for certain things (one even claimed to be good at bullshitting in a reply to their own post, after giving what seemed to some like legitimate advice...depending on the persons path.
That brings me to another point. When giving 'advice', my general method is to figure out the persons views first, then give advice accordingly...or send them to someone who is actually a bit of a mogul in their field. (ie someone more experienced in their path) Or I ask them as many questions as I can think of to gain a better insight to their situation. Occassionally I will offer my opinion and relate it to my own experience to see if it helps..... but the mockery of spiritual paths, and the resistance to the mundane is doing no one any favors, but causing a divide of an 'us vs them' almost ritual in far too many threads.
For those who think they have it figured out, guide, don't belittle.... for those who want to learn, be prepared to question all you think you know, and be ready to let go of some ideas that no longer work with all your information.
Hope all of you can learn to get along more, and take things less personal when being asked to question things... (took me a little, but it is all a part of the learning curve...good luck)
