Take not the slightest notice of anyone claiming to have "power".
They are either lying or deluded. The only real power is knowledge; and that entails a lot of study,a lot of experience,and intelligence.And nobody with that sort of "power" would ever boast that had any "power" at all!
Sounds like he is either lost within his own delusions, or is trying to gather a group of people he can manipulate by appealing to the desires of them. Perhaps its because he wants to be respected, or he has a deeper purpose, but i would still avoid this dude if possible, as he seems mentally unstable, and could very well cause a lot of damage mentally, by corrupting the views of others. The most powerful lies have a hint of truth, but its hard to say how much truth this guy uses.
"He who speaks don't know, he who knows don't speak."
You know what, based from my experienced with people, some of the people who boast about their "self-proclaimed" abilities are the ones who have deep personal problems that they can't express.. maybe family problems, etc.. they're just doing those things for them to gain attention from others.. sometimes, too much fantasizing is just their defense mechanism for them to create their own comfort zones..
New aged does not mean new in this case.
It is a term applied to old religions and beliefs presented in a new age and in a new way.
I am not certain if the term was applied to gain new interest or for novelty or by those who would take the interest out of it.
Just about anything is possible.
Sounds like the guy has ego issues.
People can try to take a lot of things.
Knowledge and ability are two things which are difficult to actually take.
I suppose they can if their intent is to take from you and you allow them to.
I don't think that there is a way for us to determine what your group dinamic is. It sounds as though you are looking for specific information on Dragon Magick. I do not have that... but don't stop reading yet. Some people desire to be controlled by someone more knowledgable than them so they can learn what the leader knows. If you do not like his style of teaching then you have two choices as I see it, since from what youve said, he indeed has more knowledge or he wouldnt have been able to control you all this far, you can either talk to him about how you feel he has been treating you or you can leave the group.
i would say leave the group and the guy alone.
you seem to be doubtful of his knowledge, ability etc.
if you want a group, there are some here and elsewhere.
if you are into the guy, well that is another story.
i do not know what you can do about that.
if you believe your knowledge exceeds his, then you will know soon enough what to do.
sounds like you may have options.
you might want to choose an option and stick with it until or unless you find it does not behoove you.
nothing has to be permanent.
you can find your way with out or with the "leader" person.
