Involvement with T.O.P.Y. means that I have broken away from the social
graces forced upon me by society. I am finding out what I really enjoy to do,
with my mental/physical attributes. I am learning to reach further than
before, to grasp the things that were previously beyond my reach.
T.O.P.Y. is a collective of individuals who, in a way, do not want to be part
of any group/social type. This is not as hypocritical as it sounds, because
each individual within T.O.P.Y. is going his/her own way, each with differing
goals, concepts of life.
T.O.P.Y. is important because it gives the individuals within a confidence that
others are trying to struggle against society. T.O.P.Y. members feel as though
they are not the only ones with a different point of view. It gives the
individual strength to succeed.
T.O.P.Y.'s aim is to help individuals attain their highest dreams, and to help
them accomplish their works and wishes in life.
T.O.P.Y. allows thee individual a chance to know him/her self. I am not sure
if I would be able to explain T.O.P.Y. to a stranger. Recently I was talking to a
friend who told me she no longer wanted to be my friend because I was
involving myself with T.O.P.Y. She does not believe in anything. Her point is
that I would no longer be me and that I didn't need T.O.P.Y.'s ideas to help
me with my problems, that in time everything works out in itself.
I disagreed with her argument, trying to explain that T.O.P.Y. would help me
with the goals that I want to obtain in my life, and that in the past not all my
problems have worked out by themself.
T.O.P.Y. asks for the individual to be clear in admitting their real desires by
discarding all irrelevancies and by asking yourself what do you really want
out ov life. The argument with my friend allowed me to see that we were no
longer friends and perhaps we never really were. How could we have been
friends when she would not allow me to be anymore than I already was nor
anything else that I could be.
T.O.P.Y. is not there to be occult. But a lot ov people have that
misunderstanding. People will always condemn the thoughts and actions ov
There is someone who I am deeply interested in, who spoke ov tribal living
and the ideas ov T.O.P.Y. At that time I had no idea what he was talking
about and the shyness that we both have makes it almost impossible to talk
to each other. We are barely able to smile and say hello, and I believe thru
the Psychick process we will be able to speak again. I will overcome the
shyness that keeps me within myself and keeps me from having what I
really want from life.
T.O.P.Y.'s ideas are for everyone who wants to wake up fromthe dreamless
world that we are living in. It's for the individual who asks themself what
they want from life, and the rituals are there to make those thoughts happen.
"Awareness ov your own energy is the awareness that flesh and spirit are
one, that thou art goddess, eternally linked, connected, at one with the
moving spirit ov all" (Starhawk 138)
T.O.P.Y. is there for thee individual who makes the coumitment to become
aware ov thee energy that is inside us all. . .
