It seems a common theme in magickal ascent is being broken down to build yourself back up again in some way. I’d like to hear how many of you approach this who have other responsibilities in life? If you have children, family, loved ones… how do they fit into your ascension? Everything that happens to you may affect them as well. Even some sociopaths can have strong loyalties.
Do you put your ascent before everything else, including your children and/or spouse/loved ones? Are you willing to allow your life to be shaken to the core, even possibly becoming destitute at some point, if it meant bringing your loved ones with you on the journey?
How far are you willing to go to ascend?
