Magic is a experimental Contact Sport

So I almost got suckered into buying a 300 occultly kit of magic goodness.  Primal hot.. it was great marketing, which I should use ( and the truth is 300 I thought, I don't really want someone else activating my herbs for me).   I probably will buy it, cause I am a faustian whore, and really buying occult classes and kits is perfectly ok.  

In fact I have a few, please buy August the shapeshifting course will start again.  It will be primal and rough.   The truth is, I do my best with stuff like to get you involved, if you buy something from me...... because no you, means really that regardless of the paradigm, regardless of the "info", it is just a book on the shelf.   I want to see and live in a transformed world.

but there is a missing ingredient in everyone of those occult classes and kits, even mine are missing this key ingredient.


It isn't that the information in those kits and the information in the books is not useful.  Certainly, I try in my classes to make them useful.  Other people do too.

The effectiveness and thus real value however comes from you.   No amount of appeals to ancient secrets, no amount of elitism, no amount of salesmanship makes any of it worthwhile.

The so-called secret arts are bullshit.  What really matters is the experience of those systems and your investment of time.   No amount of book knowledge is the same as experiential knowledge and no amount of book knowledge will prepare you for the experience of any occult or supernatural thing.  No, you have to do it and it will consume you, transform form and rebirth you.  

Really, there is no spiritual or magical power without "Experiencing" it firsthand.  It must be part of you.  Empower the runes, well you have to live them.  Connect with ancestors, you have to live it.  Tremendous transformation with Ganesh or Yoga, again have to actually live it.  Then it has power.   Before that, words, garbage symbols, and a mismash of ideas.

You have to invest You in that process, and the process will destroy you.. you will be a different you.   Seems a ranty blog but its not.  Thats probably the first secret of all esoteric thought.  Of course, you can get talismans, you can get XYZ and some will work, but those only get you so far.   The sick marketing reveals the one secret, you are still the missing ingredient.  You are the lever point which invests and becomes or not.

It is the experience, the internalization of the system, which is the doorway to real power with the system.  Sure people will argue that they have the most secret and awesome system, but really, the internalization and thus ability to congeal intention to the system that becomes most important.

Aka the system is only worth the time and effort you put into it.   Of course, in the marketing people might say stuff is "spiritually instead of ritually empowered" but this is all gimmicky pitch of sales told for certain reasons that appeal to the basic idea of elitism.  Elitism is not real power either magically or spiritually.

Even if there are spirits backing something, there is still a period of time to acclimate to those spirits.  Even if a system is the most awesome system ever, it has to be internalized.   Essentially there are no shortcuts, you must integrate with the new energies or symbols sets.

Really this sums it up.

When some wild-eyed, eight-foot-tall maniac grabs your neck, taps the back of your favorite head up against the barroom wall, and he looks you crooked in the eye and he asks you if ya paid your dues, you just stare that big sucker right back in the eye, and you remember what ol' Jack Burton always says at a time like that: "Have ya paid your dues, Jack?" "Yessir, the check is in the mail."

THOSE DUES, ARE almost always dealing with change and the acceptance of change.  Success in magic and any spiritual pursuit changes you.  It change your environment and forces you to adapt.
Many businessness do sell you products, and I bet still the information is awesome, but its still only as useful as the amount you can practice it.  Unfortunately, that includes my materials at well, but I will certainly JOIN you in experiential learning, if you invest you.

That always means time.  Time Spent working the system.  Time Spent integrating to the system.  Time to get into the system.  Time to make magic a contact sport. 

So I didn’t buy the super course and book set, but it still looks interesting and I  might buy it when I have time to invest and study it.    To make it part of me not just, just a book the time.  That’s the real secret, is to give things time to make them part of you to grow you as they grow in you.

You will always be the missing element and the most important. 


Spend the time.  Really dive in.. It will be worth it.
