[quote=“Seeker, post:15, topic:2012”][quote="-TWF-, post:14, topic:2012"]There’s a difference between doing something to pay bills and doing something you enjoy and allows you the lifestyle you want. Do you consider EA to be enslaved or Mark Alan Smith or Jake Stratton-Kent? All these people work long hours and sacrifice much to achieve their goals, much more work than most are willing to put in which is why they are successful magicians. Most will not win the lottery or be financially independent even with the use of magick, set goals and build them up from there.
If doing nothing but studying and practicing is all you want to do then great but don’t think your less enslaved to your desires and goals than anyone else.[/quote]
It’s still a pain in the ass though Haha ;)[/quote]
Thats what magick is for, change your job or the circumstances surrounding it to get what you want.
I continuously use magick for this kind of thing. I enjoy the benefits of a full time job that pays well and is happy to pay me overtime and doubletime to work weekends. I rarely work hard (hell, most of my posts are from work lol) and it provides for me a lifestyle I’m happy with and provides well for my famly. I also use magick and good old mundane effort for my own business. I’m the kind of guy who enjoys working though, I like having somehing to do.
