'Law of Similarity' Chapter

Law of Similarity

The law of similarity is a principle of magick that states more or less simply, look a likes are alike. We need channels. We need categories, and we didn’t choose to have this trait. Nature set this up for us. Everything in your world affects you in ways that match these categories.

No object has a single category it’s linked to. Literally nothing is one dimensional or it physically could not exist, at least not at our day to day scale. The relationships between categories shift according to cycles that occur in nature.

You Evolve

In The Tibetan Book of the Dead, they make mention of a stage of the souls journey through the bardo where the soul encounters a “mirror.” This mirror is only a barrier if the soul perceives a mismatch between their… Seek More

Reality is Self-Correcting

There is nothing that’s unforgivable, because there is nothing that is ultimately judgeable. Reality doesn’t care for human judgement. Even when things get derailed, they are just shuffled back into the mix. Nothing is ever left un-reconciled. This “mix” could… Seek More
