since the new year I‘d like (again) to learn Magick. Well, it’s my second try. My first try was at school time about 16 years ago. My problem that time were limited resources (money and information). Btw. I’m male, 34 years old and live in Germany.
My current problem – and that’s the reason how I found BALG – is some kind a current mass on information about Magick. And I have no idea, what I should read. Well I started with the three Magick Books written by Crowley and his book about Thoth Tarot and a book about the Abremalin ritual to communicate with the HGA. At least reading the Abremalin book was some kind a waste of time, because it seems like I have to be more advanced to do the ritual and has to be more or less alone for a half of a year. It’s impossible for me, because – well I have to earn somehow money for living.
So, I started a new book, written by Frater V.D. called in German “Schule der hohen Magie”. Maybe someone else know it. But I’m still not sure if this book is the right one for me.
Well, what do you want to learn Magick for? I think the main reason is the self-improvement. I want to invest time and money now to get easier through life. To make my business more successful (afaik most successful businesses have at least some kind of supernatural component in it). And I also want to learn more about the world outside and also about my self.
But on the other hand I’m kind of lazy. At college I didn’t want to learn how to solve differential equations because I knew, I would never do it again by hand. So with Magick I’d like to take some kind of shortcut. To get maximum results with a minimum of effort.
Can someone tell me, what’s the best way on the path of Magick?
