Greetings from an open mind, ready to absorb and begin my studies in earnest.

I am a follower of hermetic ideas, and believe in many things.

Please let me know where you began, and what the first required "Steps" are to beginning a life dedicated to learning truth.

ANy advice is appreciated, on or off board.

93,

Welcome.

The first steps are persistence and a good sense of humor.

Ive always thought laughter was the best banishing ritual.

Read for example Book 4 at first and explore and seek for your own personal path.

While everyone thus far has provided you with solid advice, I would highly recommend the study of Liber E and Liber O as a practical starting point. Fortify your temple with the basic practices contained therein and you will have a strong Foundation that's ready to begin receiving (and aspiring to) your "Truth" from on High.
While a good sense of humor and persistence are vital to succeed in many arts, as IAO131 stated above, I highly doubt that Paimon or Bartzabel are going to flee away and return back from whence they came at the sound of laughter ๐Ÿ˜‰ However, it does do wonders for the assumption of the Chinese god Fo-Hi! It is also integral to study Thelema:
"Beauty and strength, leaping laughter and delicious languor, force and fire are of us." Liber Al II,20

Where to start? Right where your feet are RIGHT NOW. The suggestions you have been given are good paths to follow from there. Be sure to take lots of notes, and question everything you feel and experience. Analyze everything. Take nothing at face value.

After reading Liber AL, A.C's commentaries on it as well as Liber Aleph would be good to read, IMHO.

Perhaps not, but even the 'greatest' people have been known to blush when laughed and "one begins to distrust very clever persons when they become embarrassed." ๐Ÿ™‚ That doesnt even get into the ego-complexes which can be banished by laughing at oneself... and the perception o the Cosmic Joke...
