One thing that always stood out to me was when a mentor told me what someone told him about staring at the ground.

“Why do you stare at the ground when you walk? The ground has nothing for you.”

While I understand this conflicts with magickal thinking, it is his way of saying “Look at where you are going to see what you want”

I’ve always been the sort of person who ignores advice and has to learn things the hard way through personal experience, but if I had to pick…

The road of excess leads to the palace of wisdom.
–William Blake

By doing certain things certain results will follow; students are most earnestly warned against attributing objective reality or philosophic validity to any of them.
–Aleister Crowley

One does not become enlightened by imagining figures of light, but by making the dark conscious.
–Carl Jung

Do not bite at the bait of pleasure, till you know there is no hook beneath it.
–Thomas Jefferson

and finally,

If you’re going to try, go all the way. Otherwise, don’t even start. This could mean losing girlfriends, wives, relatives and maybe even your mind. It could mean not eating for three or four days. It could mean freezing on a park bench. It could mean jail. It could mean derision. It could mean mockery–isolation. Isolation is the gift. All the others are a test of your endurance, of how much you really want to do it. And, you’ll do it, despite rejection and the worst odds. And it will be better than anything else you can imagine. If you’re going to try, go all the way. There is no other feeling like that. You will be alone with the gods, and the nights will flame with fire. You will ride life straight to perfect laughter. It’s the only good fight there is.
–Charles Bukowski

Only when you forget you are human will you remember you are a god.
