    Above I have a thread sort of similar to this one where I talk about some of the magical forces controlling the universe among other related topics.

    And no I don't care if people steal my ideas because knowledge is free. Anyway I like your theories greenfariy on the mystical side of the existence.

    my tree comment was in reference to someone else posting here, not towards you. Taoism in particular talks about chi exchange with trees, I've read it many times [pine trees are the best!]. I've done it far many more.

    How about my earlier questions?

    I have a lot of background in Taoism, Buddhism, and certain Hindu things. It would not be incorrect to describe me as Tantric Hindu, though many other labels would not be incorrect either. A smidgeon of me is shamanic, I like Native American stuff but don't really identify with it. I do identify with various Celtic stuff however.

    Personally, how much my Taoism and Hinduism semi-feel pagan/shamanic/nature-like seems to go in wild swings between "rather similar" and "not at all similar." At the level of energy practices [in the taoist sense of the term energy] it can feel very similar, at the level of mind practices usually there is almost no similarity. I don't mean this in an offensive way but often when I see psychic people my reaction is "Oh look they are psychic, but otherwise more or less like anybody else. They are not 'person-plus'". I think eastern stuff reaches much more transformative levels. Potentially other things could do, but I've never seen it and almost never heard of it.

    Nothing in my eastern training has ever focused on spirit guides. While there existence is not denied per se, questions about such topics have always been returned by answers like "If your goal is freedom why are you looking for advise from other beings still snared in the wheel of death and rebirth?" Auras are really hit or miss. We often can do things that basically are reading auras, but we dont think or talk about it in that way. Or else we basically say "how does empower and superenergize all levels of your being." Psychic is a word that is used infrequently and often shunned, yet things we train go for far beyond what would qualify in most people's minds as psychic. Past lives are touched upon infrequently, usually in a "everything that has happened before has brought you to this point here and now, why are you interested in hearing about your past lives?"
    I'm not sure I've ever heard the terms "Akashic records" used in any Eastern anything. Nor "metaplanar journeys." We don't cast spells or "do" magic. Desiring things, altering things, and desiring to alter things on a certain level are all rather dangerous/distracting/grasping intents and generally to be avoided. I've almost never heard of anyone "summoning" a spirit.

    Anywho, just some of my thoughts on eastern/western differences. Feel free to chime, add in, or ignore as you see fit.

    I agree with most of this. Interesting. Like I say, two sides of the same thing; either cultural hemisphere can give insight into the same things but in different ways. A lot of things are basically interchangeable. I don't have an "alignment." I am a mixture of the two. And I was kind of answering the questions backwards combined with what I felt like at the time; so I will get to them.

    Why does it not surprise me that 2 mystical people are behind tritype theory?

    Re: trees:
    Theoretically all interaction is energy exchange, just what we call energy exchange is a conscious awareness of it and an attempt to intensify and consciously manipulate the energy. I've exchanged energy with trees, but probably not the way you are talking about. When I'm in the forest, I feel my energy and my chakras to be perfectly balanced. My energy becomes in tune with the trees and the life around me, and the Earth. When I hug a tree, I can connect to its personal spirit, and it can help me balance my energy or I can help heal its energy by giving it love (works the same way as tantra or reiki, and is kind of the same thing really).

    There was a venerable old oak tree where I used to live, who seemed quite the arboreal conversationalist, at least until he was threatened with destruction to make way for a drive-through pharmacy. His name was Nicodemus.

    As Greenfairy described, many of us see the many deities of the various pantheons as simply different facets or aspects of a single divine entity. This balances male and female, and other polar opposites in a way that leads to creativity/creation. But not all pagans share this view. Paganism is a religion of common practice more than common faith, meaning that in our groups we share common ritual which makes a communal spiritual experience possible, but each might interpret it differently, in accordance with his/her individual beliefs.

    In my tradition, we use the word "witch" to refer to the spiritual side of things (for both men and women), and the word "wizard" to refer to the more skills-based side, e.g. manipulating energy, understanding herbs, plants, crystals, etc. One must develop both sides to be balanced and effective. A witch is someone who has learned enough to attend to his/her own spiritual needs, to be an effective priest to him/herself, but this definition is rather specific to the tradition in which I was initiated.
    I've been called a criminal, a terrorist, and a threat to the known universe. But everything you were told is a lie. The truth is, they've taken our freedom, our home, and our future. The time has come for all humanity to take a stand...
