Video/computer gaming?

Post#1 » Tue Mar 02, 2021 7:19 pm

Hi all,

I was wondering how many of you are computer gamers/video gamers, and how this affects your practice?

I know a lot of people in the occult community are also avid gamers, and also that there are some aspects of games which are clearly intentionally or unintentionally inspired by occult work or non-material realities.

Personally, I enjoy gaming (although I don't really have time for it at this age)... BUT, I find it tends to negatively impact my own practice. For me, it seems to "clog" up my inner eye, reappear in scrying, meditation and dreams, etc.

This is not always a bad thing - given the liminal nature of some games, especially fantasy RPG's, it might help to have a shared vocabulary for some things.

However in general I find it has a negative effect or leaves my ability to perceive what is real in question.

Still, I haven't met anyone else who has this problem, so I was wondering about the rest of you?
