I have been thinking about pathworking as I am currently on a pathworking right now. I initially thought that I would spend only a month with Belial and then a few weeks internalizing what he taught me.
That was in late July. Thing is King Belial has done more than just teach me he has opened a ton of doors for me. Without Belial I would never had been introduced to Hekate. And those who read that thread saw that in finding Hekate, I found a part of myself. With help from Belial I felt like I finally came of age as a magician. I am still new at this but I no longer feel like a newb.
I came to believe that I am the path that I walk. As so pathworking is not really a way to grab power outside of myself as much as it is a way to get some outside help in discovering what power lays dormant and asleep in me. It just put a new perspective on life and magic for me and stressed the need for internal work as the road to true gnosis and power.
Just a thought, who knows maybe I am just going crazy. (It has been known to happen)
Stay frosty BALG,
