Doing magick doesn’t set you above anyone because most “normies” are getting things done while a handful of practitioners are too busy crying over their ex’s and unable to get a actual job.
I don’t consider myself equal to anyone and if I do it’s a small dime of a few. If someone’s energy stands out to me spiritually i acknowledge their difference among other practitioners but that’s simply their energy, but doing magick as a whole doesn’t make you special. Quite frankly there’s a handful of practitioners who feel at the bottom of the barrel in comparison to non practitioners and practitioners alike.
So I will agree there not everyone is equal and in a spiritual sense some are further along than others, even those who are big names authors often feel less potent energetically than those who aren’t.
