#1. Conventional, organized religion, in its most decadent form, is an inert parody of the genuine religious experience as much as modern occult organizations are degenerate parodies of forgotten religions. - Author: Zeena Schreck
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Zeena Schreck
#2. These people who were supposed to be my family, who had conspired to look enough like me to serve as a critique of my appearance ... - Author: Ben Marcus
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Ben Marcus
#3. But anyone can write, right?'" Conner asked. "I mean, that's why authors get judged so harshly, isn't it? Because technically everyone could do it if they wanted to."
"Just because anyone can do something doesn't mean everyone should," Mrs. Peters said. "Besides, anyone with an Internet connection feels they have the credentials to critique or belittle anything these days. - Author: Chris Colfer
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Chris Colfer
#4. The term 'cyberutopian' tends to be used only in the context of critique. Calling someone a cyberutopian implies that he or she has an unrealistic and naively overinflated sense of what technology makes possible and an insufficient understanding of the forces that govern societies. - Author: Ethan Zuckerman
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Ethan Zuckerman
#5. In his early text, somewhat cumbersomely titled 'Towards a Critique of Hegel's PHILOSOPHY OF RIGHT,' the young Karl Marx famously noted that religion - the Christian faith, he meant primarily - is 'the opiate of the people.' It's a drug, and it's a 'downer' or 'depressant' insulating people from the pain of oppressive social realities and consoling them with a dream world of heavenly bliss. Alternatively, religion can function as an 'upper,' a 'stimulant' energizing people for the tasks at hand - a function of religion Marx failed to grasp. - Author: Miroslav Volf
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Miroslav Volf
#6. Desert is simply that: an ecstatic critique of culture, an ecstatic form of disappearance. - Author: Jean Baudrillard
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Jean Baudrillard
#7. I became aware that there is no accessible high quality training that is freely available, free of dogmatic styles, agendas or commercial interest.
Magical training that is heavily tied to profits, fashions, and group politics cannot flourish properly, nor can an individual fully grow in such an environment.
True magical development is dying under the weight of heavy commercialization and group factions: it is time to look at a different way of ensuring that the integrity of magic continues for future generations. - Author: Josephine McCarthy
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Josephine McCarthy
#8. People who wanted to challenge the status quo didn't get to have temper tantrums. They had to be smarter, and calmer, and faster, and better. Beyond reproach, beyond critique. As perfect as a human being could be, because you could whine about fair and unfair all you wanted, but at the end of the day, you did the extra work or you failed. - Author: Kit Rocha
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Kit Rocha
#9. In the spirit of Trickster, here's to turning representation against itself in the fight for survivance, for f"a new consciousness of coexistence," for a new Turtle Island. - Author: Pauline Turner Strong
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Pauline Turner Strong
#10. Stirner and Nietzsche [adopt] a mode of thinking which is personal, introspective, and which while often operating on alternative systems of belief and action does so only as a means of better grasping one dominant goal the patterns of individual redemption. Stirner and Nietzsche are not primarily interested in critique as such ... Their work is too egoistically compelled for them ever to employ the external world as more than the repository for a series of projections of their own. - Author: John Carroll
Critique Of Occultism quotes by John Carroll
#11. Witchcraft is more than just a practice, it is a way of life. A way of looking at the physical and spiritual as a collaborative source of manifestation.
We are in tune with nature, in tune with ourselves and in alignment with our all-knowing inner witch. - Author: Dacha Avelin
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Dacha Avelin
#12. Our generation seems to be facing a crisis of critique. We want to know what's best, we want to know where to eat and what movie to see, but we've begun to forget that real opinion, real critique, must always come out of an absence of voices - from a singular subjective viewpoint. You - Author: Michael Harris
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Michael Harris
#13. It is unclear from any modern critique of religion that anyone is in a position to disprove the reality of religious mystery expressed in the ancients' texts, even if we probe that mystery. Modern affirmations of such faith as well as denials of it are acts of faith. Yet these critiques of religion bring us closer to understanding the human side of divine-human relations. And this is what believers and nonbelievers, believing and unbelieving theologians and historians of religion share: a desire to understand the human side of the equation in religious traditions. - Author: Mark S. Smith
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Mark S. Smith
#14. While the older generation is content to sit around and critique culture, that culture is moving beyond them. At some point the traditional church and all of the expressions of that church will become essentially irrelevant. - Author: Ted Dekker
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Ted Dekker
#15. [F]rom the perspective of outsiders to the Christian tradition, Paul has sometimes been ridiculed for having abandoned monotheism. Such ridicule is part of a more general theological critique, advanced for centuries by Muslims and Jews, against the Christian doctrine of the incarnation, namely that God became human, and the notion of a triune God, namely that God is three-in-one, Father, Son, and Holy Ghost. To reduce a long tradition of theological dialogue and debate to one sentence, Muslims and Jews believe that devotion to Christ renders the Christian claim to monotheism misguided at best and idolatry at worst, while Christians see no contradiction between their affirmation of the oneness of God and the doctrine of the Trinity.

But, to once again reiterate a point made several times already in this book, Christianity does not yet exist as an independent religious system in Paul's time. Paul is not operating with the doctrine of the incarnation as it was defined in the Council of Nicea (CE 325) or the Christian doctrine of the Trinity as it was hammered out in the Council of Chalcedon (CE 451). At the same time, Paul's letters already reflect a surprisingly high Christology that appears to anticipate later orthodox views. That is to say, Paul's letters manifest a belief in Jesus' divinity that came to characterize the full-out identification between Jesus and God of later official Christian doctrine. Jesus is clearly a divine figure of unique status in Paul's le - Author: Pamela Eisenbaum
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Pamela Eisenbaum
#16. They will talk about you and it won't always be good. You won't even know them but they will critique you - and judge you - and everything you stand for. Their words will cut through your heart-strings and make you question the hopes and dreams that have gnawed your soul since birth.

I warn you, because I believe your unique gift of expression needs to be shared. Resist cowering down and holding back for fear of rejection. Spread those creative wings and create. But, prepare yourself. Because naysayers are not a possibility, they are a guarantee. - Author: Alfa Holden
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Alfa Holden
#17. While the style of the critique may vary with the character of the critic, overly polite criticism benefits neither the proponents of new ideas nor the scientific enterprise. - Author: Carl Sagan
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Carl Sagan
#18. If you look at our world, it's a world of critique. - Author: Jose Canseco
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Jose Canseco
#19. The ethos and critique are of poetry, which becomes a rich dark with a phosphorescence of lyric as witness. - Author: Mei-mei Berssenbrugge
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Mei-mei Berssenbrugge
#20. Soap operas are like boot camps for film actors, so I really learned a lot. It was a masterclass in working for camera. I made myself watch myself every day. I would sort of try and be objective about it and critique myself a little. There's a lot more skill set than people realize in soap operas. They shoot, like, 35 scenes a day. - Author: Finn Wittrock
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Finn Wittrock
#21. If philosophy is still necessary, it is so only in the way it has been from time immemorial: as critique, as resistance to the expanding heteronomy, even if only as thought's powerless attempt to remain its own master and to convict of untruth, by their own criteria, both a fabricated mythology and a conniving, resigned acquiescence. - Author: Theodor Adorno
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Theodor Adorno
#22. How shall we define occultism? The word is derived from the Latin occultus, hidden; so that it is the study of the hidden laws of nature. Since all the great laws of nature are in fact working in the invisible world far more than in the visible, occultism involves the acceptance of a much wider view of nature than that which is ordinarily taken. The occultist, then, is a man who studies all the laws of nature that he can reach or of which he can hear, and as a result of his study he identifies himself with these laws and devotes his life to the service of evolution. - Author: Charles Webster Leadbeater
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Charles Webster Leadbeater
#23. I believe that we are henceforth incapable of returning to an order of moral life which would take the form of a simple submission to commandments or to an alien or supreme will, even if this will were represented as divine. We must accept as a positive good the critique of ethics and religion that has been undertaken by the school of suspicion. From it we have learned to understand that the commandment that gives death, not life, is a product and projection of our own weakness. - Author: Paul Ricoeur
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Paul Ricoeur
#24. The heart of the theater is the play itself, how it dramatizes life to make it meaningful entertainment. To achieve depth and universality, the playwright must subject himself to intense critique, to know human character and behavior, and finally to construct art from the most mundane of human experience. - Author: F. Sionil Jose
Critique Of Occultism quotes by F. Sionil Jose
#25. The classic formulation of the materialist conception of history is that of the Preface to A Contribution to the Critique of Political Economy, written in 1859. - Author: Anonymous
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Anonymous
#26. When a witch embodies self-love, her energy becomes magnetic and her sense of possibility becomes contagious. - Author: Dacha Avelin
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Dacha Avelin
#27. When we only name the problem, when we state complaint without a constructive focus or resolution, we take hope away. In this way critique can become merely an expression of profound cynicism, which then works to sustain dominator culture. - Author: Bell Hooks
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Bell Hooks
#28. The more time you can put between you and your manuscript, the more fresh your eyes become and the more mistakes you'll catch. Let a chapter rest for a day, you'll see ways to improve it. Let your completed book rest a month or more and you'll see stuff that's long or that you want to skip. Read it out loud to get rid of awkward phrases and listen to your critique partners if they are good. - Author: Dan Alatorre
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Dan Alatorre
#29. The 'Enlightenment', which discovered the liberties, also invented the disciplines. - Author: Michel Foucault
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Michel Foucault
#30. You will find it will almost always be more comfortable to sit on the sidelines and critique the builders from afar. But at the end of the day, the people who make a difference, the people who shape history, are not the haters. - Author: Wendy Kopp
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Wendy Kopp
#31. The invocation of social necessity should alert us. It contains the seeds for Marx's critique of political economy as well as for his dissection of capitalism . - Author: David Harvey
Critique Of Occultism quotes by David Harvey
#32. For example, the idea that objects have properties out there in fixed ways is an incorrect idea about the world. Properties are created through relationships and processes. They are not inherent in electrons or photons or quanta any more than they are inherent in soil or trees or people. So my critique of reductionistic science is a critique that I have inherited from my scientific training. But it has been deepened by my experiences as an ecologist, in seeing the ecological destruction taking place today. - Author: Vandana Shiva
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Vandana Shiva
#33. Afterward I lay on my side with A Critique of Postcolonial Reason propped half-open on the pillow beside me. Occasionally I lifted a finger to turn the page and allowed the heavy and confusing syntax to drift down through my eyes and into my brain like fluid. I'm bettering myself, I thought. I'm going to become so smart that no one will understand me. - Author: Sally Rooney
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Sally Rooney
#34. Darker thoughts crowded in during the deepest hours of the night when he woke listening to the secret mystifying sounds of the sleeping palace. Many nights, the king was there. Pleasant, irrelevant, and distracting, he eased Relius past nightmares and self-recrimination. Some nights he said nothing at all, just comforted with his presence. Other nights he related the events of his day, spewing out his insights and analyses of the Attolian court in a devastatingly funny critique. - Author: Megan Whalen Turner
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Megan Whalen Turner
#35. The idea of peer critique, of talking about each other's art - I just found it so useless. - Author: Win Butler
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Win Butler
#36. In the land of poetry commentary, you will encounter those who take poetry too lightly, and those who take poetry too seriously. The former will give you no real indication of their true opinion of the merits of the poem, while the latter shall reject it out of hand, or be entirely unsatisfied until you write it to their liking. Neither are worth paying attention to. - Author: Jasper Sole
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Jasper Sole
#37. If you give people an idea these days, they just think you are sharing it with them so they can critique it, play devil's advocate, and so on. It doesn't occur to them that they might help or get enthused or at least have the courtesy to get out of your way. - Author: Esme Raji Codell
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Esme Raji Codell
#38. For me 'Oliver Twist' is a political novel. It is a furious critique of the treatment of orphans and poor children who were forced to spend their early lives in ghastly institutions. - Author: Henning Mankell
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Henning Mankell
#39. It is yet another of Nietzsche's merits that he joins to his critique of Enlightenment moralities a sense of their failure to address adequately, let alone to answer the question: what sort of person am I to become? This is in a way an inescapable question in that an answer to it is given in practice in each human life. But for characteristically modern moralities it is a question to be approached only by indirection. The primary question from their standpoint has concerned rules: what rules ought we to follow? - Author: Alasdair MacIntyre
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Alasdair MacIntyre
#40. He found it puzzling that so many rural people were hostile to, even terrified of, the place where they lived. It wasn't just that hard-working country folk had no time for the precious concerns of the effete urban environmentalists, what amazed Rice was how you could spend your whole life physically immersed in a particular ecological system and yet remain blinded to it by superstition, tradition, prejudice. Out west, it was ranchers' holy war on predators and their veneration of Indo-European domestic animals they husbanded on land too dry to support them. Here in the Appalachians, you saw rugged country men who refused to walk in the woods all summer because they were scared of snakes. - Author: James A. McLaughlin
Critique Of Occultism quotes by James A. McLaughlin
#41. A real reconciliation of East and West is impossible and inconceivable on the basis of a materialistic Communism, or of a materialistic Capitalism, or indeed of a materialistic Socialism. The third way will neither be "anti-Communist" nor 'anti-Capitalist'. It will recognize the truth in liberal democracy, and it will equally recognize the truth in Communism. A critique of Communism and Marxism does not entail an enmity towards Soviet Russia, just as a critique of liberal democracy is not entail enmity towards the west. . . . But the final and most important justification of a 'third way' is that there must be a place from which we may boldly testify to, and proclaim, truth, love and justice. No one today likes truth: utility and self interest have long ago been substituted for truth. - Author: Nikolai A. Berdyaev
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Nikolai A. Berdyaev
#42. The true God is to be venerated in obscure and fearful Places, with Horror in their Approaches, and thus did our Ancestors worship the Daemon in the form of great Stones. - Author: Peter Ackroyd
Critique Of Occultism quotes by Peter Ackroyd
#43. I sent the first half of the dissertation to Rudolf Bultmann [major figures of early 20th century biblical studies and a prominent voice in liberal Christianity] as a courtesy with an invitation to respond to any points in my analysis and critique if he wished. I was speechless when I received a long letter from Bultmann, who had diligently examined the details of my arguments. His letter became a featured part of the publication in 1964 by Westminster Press of Radical Obedience: The Ethics of Rudolf Bultmann: With a Response by Rudolf Bultmann.
That book, more than any other , launched my career as a serious theologian. But it also led to my reputation as a situation ethicist, ironically just about the time I was beginning to disavow situation ethics. - Author: Thomas C. Oden
