Just how far can we truly push the envelope?
Where do we draw the line?
Do you honestly think it is reasonable for magicians to think in such ‘out of this world’ concepts to continue their work beyond where it presently is?
I’ve been on this forum now for 16 months and in this time I’ve heard some pretty way-out suggestions and proposals like, I want to win the national lottery, I want to kill somebody simply because he’s making my life miserable, I want to physically shape shift into the form of a wolf, I wish to achieve immortality!! “ha…let me know if you ever achieve that last one”
Occult authors are somewhat responsible here as many imply that magic can make you literally go against physics > they sensationalise their ideas too much giving a deluded impression to the apprentice, which in my mind is simply done to sell ideas to the gullible, naïve and somewhat vulnerable to make more money?
we have to know the difference between fact and fantasy, which can be difficult as a practitioner of magician as it can create the impression that we could fly to the moon if we wanted too, or become a millionaire without lifting a finger. Do these crazy ideas truly help us spiritually rise through the trials of life, or will they just delay our progress at the end of the day?
I personally think that we as magicians have a better view of reality than the muggles, but it appears that the transition from a fresh faced beginner with almost ‘alien ideas’ into a seasoned magician with his head in reality can take years to transcend. Should it really take this long though? Could we do it far quicker or is this expecting too much?
I had some truly wacky ideas about magic when I first started simply because of all the preconditioning, it took a good few years to understand exactly what magic could do for me, and what is certainly cannot. This however doesn’t make me right in my conclusions, it just presents one personal view of life based on experiences through my own world view.
Today however, I have a well balanced view on this wonderful practice and ancient technology of the wise. I honestly can’t tell you the last time I failed and this is not to brag or gloat as I have learnt the bloody hard way. I have made every fucking mistake time and time again until it EVENTUALLY struck a chord and make me understand it better!
I never ask for things I don’t truly want, I never ask just to see if it will work as these are all ‘false-calls’ and would never work in a million years. I never try to manipulate a girl for sex or romance in general as this is another pile of bullshit put about in love spells. All you truly have to do is cast a wide net and this will bring in more opportunitys for you to choose from who are suitable.
I never chase dreams of being a lottery winner as this is a purely money related goal, which just puts you in that pool of mass intention as there’s many people all striving to attain the same goal. If I gave you a million, it wouldn’t alter your life at all until you decided to withdrawn some and buy something with it, then it would change your life as you now have a clear intention > just like if I was a bank manager and you came to me wanting money, I would want to know WHY you wanted this money…the intention is therefore the key to head towards, not the money as this is just a means to an end.
We have to understand the true reality of the situation and then apply our magic to this, or we will tend to become trapped in that realm of delusion where we try and manipulate falsities to fall into our reality instead. When I decide I want something I am prepared to do whatever it takes and this is what many beginners don’t understand. They seemed to be trapped once again in that world of fantasy thinking that because they are a magician, then they can bend physics and reality into their own warped expectations.
both life and spirit tends to reflect our internal world so when we truly want something and are prepared to reinforce this with action, then it too will be ready to act and give us ideas to use, it will guide us to opportunities and on other occasions, it will simply place it straight in our lap without any effort. So please don’t make false calls to the spirits because until you’re ready and willing, don’t expect them to be either.
The practice of magic has made me very confident, it has given me belief that is solid, it has given me a will that makes me as persistent as the terminator from those Arnie movies. These are truly great qualities to possess so magic certainly shapes the character. Magic has also matured me in many ways over the years allowing me to rise a little further towards my own God form, my own true higher self. It has shown me that I can achieve most things when I am ready, when I am willing to act for then we have power as what is power if it’s not being in a position to act, or at least willing to.
These ideas and beliefs have definitely given me a superior edge to my own character, I have brought myself out of the dungeons of doom and delusion through the practice of magic in a real way, which to me is far more potent than any hyped up sensationalistic bullshit that tends to run through the heart and soul of some magical instruction, in my opinion this type of presentation gives it a ridiculous image and a false set of expectations to the neophytes. A true magician’s mind is, ‘in my own opinion’, very much in a state of realism, not falsities and empty promises
