Concerning A.'.A.'. Students

Postby milkBoxx » Wed Feb 18, 2015 4:05 pm

Hi,
I was just curious to those who are A.'.A.'. if you could give me your opinion?
When exactly does the student 'show up' so to speak. Is it 1=10 or 2=9? Or am I way off base?
Can I have another NANA!?!.....Can I have another NANA!?!....

I don't know what this question even means.

"Student" is the name of a formal stage prior even to Probation (0=0).

Or do you mean when in one's course of moving through the grades does someone approach who is a student? One must be 1=10 in order to accept a Probationer.

That's what I intended to convey.
Thanks for answering my question.

Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the Law.

I would like to talk about the "student" stage as the preliminary step before formal acceptance into the Probationer grade of initiation into the order A.'.A.'. In lieu of creating another thread, I think it would be appropriate to utilize this thread.

While beginning to take on the responsibility of building "a thorough acquaintance" of all the books listed in the Student Grade syllabus, I paused any of my practices to focus in on my studies. I have started a "student journal" to take notes after a study session while keeping in mind that the goal is familiarizing myself with the material rather than having a deep understanding.

As I come across rituals and operations I am tempted to give these experiments a try. An example would be those found in Liber O within Equinox vol 1 no 2. However, I feel like this would cause a kind of ritual compulsion and distract me from studying the material. Is this the right way I should come at this material; like a student who is not yet qualified to perform these operations but study the steps and practices from afar?

No reason why you should not give them a try. (It's just that it won't be part of your official task—but you already do other things besides studying, right?) I think you're overthinking it. :D

I think you are right; I am over thinking it a bit. I want to make sure I come at my official task of study with respect and intensity that I forget to not take things so seriously... What can I say, I was that guy that sat in the front of the class in college :?

Well, there's no such thing as too much study. Knock yourself out. :twisted:
