So this question is more political theory- in the vein of Timothy’s Black Magick Manifesto.
Specifically, what have philosophers (or Nietzsche) said about the Cohabitation of Magick and non-Magick minded peoples within the same civilization.
How do we honour our true self, (in all its power) without letting our Egos get the better of us.
Timothy mentions Egalitarianism, which I think is an appropriate value to maintain up hold- especially in this time.
And yet, the divergence between those that know and beleive in their Magick and those that don’t, couldn’t be wider. And its getting even more so.
I’ve learnt the hard way, how fruitless and challenging it is to hold in my mind (or vibration) who and what I TRULY AM, while attempting to relate to what someone else thinks and “knows” THEY TRULY ARE.
Frankly speaking Ascent, feels like an upward thrusting peak, (near vertical at its top) and what this image says to me is that it becomes highly individualized, cripplingly isolationist (at least amongst physical friends), because to turn to another (even to gadge your own trajectory) undermines or hinders your own potential.
Even if our respected peaks are of the same altitude, its likely they are (at the very least) projecting outward from a different location on this shared sphere. So that any well intended comparisons are either pointless or detrimental to the trajectory of your personal Ascent.
Nonetheless, will there not be a point in society where some will say: " Your mountain is too high and steep, and we don’t know what’s going on up there. And we don’t trust that which we don’t understand. And the very AWARENESS of the altitude of your Ascent is making people confused and unsettled. "
And we have to decide: Do we ignore this concern? Do we address it? Is this the foolish worries of someone looking for strife? Is this like the Church’s fear of the printing press? Am I getting ahead of myself?
Am I missing the point- that when manifestation is fun and easy and boundless, all possible conflict is a fun and playful opportunity to cocreate?
It IS ( somewhat) fun to casually debate someone whose on the wrong side of history (as long as you don’t take yourself too seriously)
In other words,
What, is the (inevitable) Political Science of Ascent?
From a Left Hand Path perspective: Are we our Brother’s Keepers?
