Distance Membership

It is important to understand that being part of the house will inevitably lead to the feelings of loneliness, isolation, and distance. It is contradictory in itself that by belonging to this group one would find great satisfaction from being a part of a group of people who pretty nearly understand each other without words and yet day-to-day living becomes filled with desire for more connection. Perhaps this conflict and internal struggle stems from the combination of the spirit of limitless potential and the human body with a human psyche that operates in the realm based on limitations.

There might be a general concept out there that if one joins a group – they become involved in a series of ever evolving interactions that lead to accomplishment of a goal or just result in satisfaction derived simply from exchange of ideas. For the most part this also applies to our group – there are interactions, there are ideas, we work and organize open house gather, however if a year is considered as a whole – our interactions are sparce and concern more policies and procedures as well as organizational matters rather than mystical discoveries.

There was a time when we were younger and had less on our plates, we had more time and mental capacity to dedicate to our awakenings and explorations, there were regular classes, there were frequent online discussions and conversations flowed more freely. As years went on and we have grew into our current lives, moved around, acquired responsibilities and daily rituals dedicated to moving ahead as independent, successful, contributing-to-society members, we had reduced our time spent on interactive mystical collaboration. Something that drove us together has been pushed to the side by the mundanity of the daily grind. It is not to say that we have stopped our spiritual development, quite on the contrary, each individual member has found additional areas to focus on and everyone now is part of some kind of other spiritual tradition that helps them be better. And the connections we feel are no less prominent as they have been at the beginning when we just discovered each other. But this is where we are – the foundation of strong individual characteriestics, which each one of us possess, (and by this point only the most independent and self-sustaining people have remained in the house), results in us quietly doing our own thing and expending our resources to attain individual goals. In turn this means we prone to less likely engage each other in random conversations, we often dont answer questions of rhetorical nature and find it hard to stick to a routeen of sharing our opinion in an online forums.

It is our reality and one of our struggles. Therefore it is important for those who wish to join us to know that one would most certainly experience feelings of isolation, distance, loneliness and frustration. Especially if they do not live in Ohio. It is pertinent to mention that if one chooses our system of beliefs over another system because it feels right, that person would most likely pay less attention to other spiritual paths, even if they might provide them with more social interractions. So one must be aware that the path in House Kheperu is often times walked alone, it presents challenges that also must be overcome individually and the further one goes – the greater the trials become. In the end we do have unspoken support for each other and an invisible web that connects us, but our personalities exist at a distance from each other, and in some cases it is a good thing, for it is far worse when we get in each other’s way of we are too close in physical proximity.
