Some of you reading this baffle me. Why? Because you are superstitious to the point of being a flake. Look I know the occult world has a mixture of superstition, religion, metaphysics and so on, all intertwined. Seriously, you do not have to be one of those folks who think just because s/he practices Sorcery or (ugh) MagicK that everything you do has some sort of “consequence”.
What is the deal with thinking that everything that goes wrong is always someone out to get you? Or some Spirit is out to harm you? Seriously? You’re buying into the Bogeyman theory? C’mon you’re supposed to be a practitioner of the occult not some half-witted flake pretending to practice the occult!
And where is it engraved in stone that if you are initiated or have Spiritual abilities that you’re impervious to problems or danger? Who’s the moron that thinks just because you’re a Navy Seal that you’re bulletproof? Yes it IS the same logic. Some of you have this idiotic belief that if you get initiated all your problems will somehow disappear. Hah!
Dogs runaway, cats get run over, neighbors can just be asshats, vehicles have problems, appliances break down, life has PROBLEMS, all right? It’s part and parcel of the business. If you don’t have any problems, you’re not doing anything. Hello? Life happens and thus we have problems whether we’re rich or poor, intelligent or stupid, young or old initiated or not. It’s the way of the world. Get used to it!
Yet the biggest purveyors of the idiotic nonsense that if you’re initiated or have Sorcery, you shouldn’t have any problems are those halfwits who believe in Karma. You’re the ones who make up all of the excuses as to why such bad things happen to begin with. No one said life was going to be easy just because you made your wand or you follow some hermetic path, did they? If so get a refund.
There are magicKians out there who argue over the definitions of magicK or argue about which neo-masonic order is valid or whether Barrett actually stole from Agrippa and so on but none of these geniuses ever bother to stop and look at how foolish it is to think that just because you have met your HGA (well for those of you who actually DID the work to meet it!) that all your problems would simply vanish.
Yes superstition goes hand in hand with the occult, metaphysics and Sorcery but does that mean you have to some kind of new age flake who every time something bad happens to you that it’s automatically some Spirit or some practitioner working against you? Please, you are not that important! Did you read that? YOU ARE NOT THAT IMPORTANT.
I know many of you would like to believe you are important but in reality, you’re not. If you ceased to be, some would feel sadness from your departure but overall the world would still spin, rains would still come & go and the seasons would change without fail.
Had a practitioner email me asking me what was befalling him since his sister somehow managed to let their dog out and forgot about the dog that it got lost and ended up freezing to death in a very cold stretch of cold weather this past winter. He wanted to know why. After all, he’s initiated. Well la dee friggin’ da. His sister is a moron and he should get rid of her. But it’s not the Spirits fault nor is it his wards at home or any such thing. It’s just pure human stupidity. Nothing more. Nothing less.
