Often times I wondered why all the Magicians on YouTube and various websites do not use their Magick for fame and massive fortune. I always though that wisdom is cool but so is reaching a high status in Life.
Then I recently realized this. Both of those come with unpleasant prices. Fame looks glamorous on the outside but on the inside it breaks a person and is really unpleasant.
Massive fortune such as making billions is pointless. It comes with its own consequences too, for example: money can make one greedy, I’ve seen people who are so obsessed with their money that they avoid doctors visits for serious issues because it costs too much yet they live in luxury.
Now I’m not saying be unpopular and broke. Well unless it’s what you want. As a Magician it seems that an above average lifestyle and having a few close friends is best.
Funny after these recent realizations, I’ve come to a conclusion that two things I used to strive for and that most are striving towards is a worldly illusion. Well we might as well enjoy some worldly pleasures anyway.
Feel free to share some of your opinions on this.
