No, lets us not bandy with semantics here. Occult has nothing to do with truth.
Yes, I have investigated and continue to investigate on the occult (my definition) I have read the major ones, Blavatsky, I've read the Book of Splendour, and the modern rehashes like Eckankar, Dianetics etc.
What I see from these is a departure from the revealation of Rastafari. A turning aside. Apostasy. The same illusion of liberation, when in actual fact one is actually subjecting oneself to the same demonic entities that control the likes of Bush today.
Let us not detract from the topic. I earnestly believe that you are entitled to a spiritual path of your choosing. What I would then have a problem with is you, having renounced Rastafari in favour of Buddha, Krishna or Sai Baba or whatever, still insist that you are one of us. I will treat you like any other person, but I would be upset if you rose in the congregation to teach.
