We are not what we do, but what we do does in many ways stem from what we are.
Shall we discuss high or ceremonial magick in the gold magick style?
High magick, as far as gold magick goes, tends to be law. People perform high magick rituals of that type all the time, even have a variety of types, so following legal decisions as regards trade, industry and science, even art.
I do that too. It is the place to start. This is the “astrology” of gold magick. The powers that be are bigger than individuals. It doesn’t matter what Donald Trump is doing personally, or what he acts like, he’s still heavily influenced by the macro system of gold magick.
That’s the difference between natural magick and high magick, the micro scale versus the macro. But ever notice that one context doesn’t really translate well into the other? You can’t use the insights of one to do the other. If you were looking for a bank loan, you would be better off using natural magick than high magick. If you were attempting to create a grand business strategy that would tap into the needs and trends of the world as it marches into the future, then high magick would serve better than low. Having an iPhone won’t give you a vision, and having a vision won’t give you an iPhone.
A lot of high minded thinkers, supposed geniuses, fail dramatically when they try to bend the force of gold magick, and a lot of simple, aggressive, base level individuals bend it quite easily. But harness both levels and your total power is much greater.
But even with both of these magicks working for you quite well, you can still suffer dramatic failure. Is this not so?
You have to fail to succeed. Actually, no, failure is as often distracting and even as ruining as it is shaping and building.
If you are afraid of failure, you will never learn. If you are afraid of learning, you will always fail. But if you are afraid of failing, you will sometimes succeed anyway.
There have been many accidental empires formed. Coke was one of them. A lot of big name products gave no indication they would succeed, like Seven Up, and this list is kind of long. There have even been products that people were sure would succeed. They had no fear of failure, and they still failed miserably. So fear of failure as a hindrance is overrated I think, but not the point.
Your thoughts are welcome. Be well friends.
