And he will not let any word fall to the ground...

In keeping with the theme from yesterday, I'd like to talk about one of the things I muse about. Why my magic is more successful than other people's.

I know, it sounds damned conceited. It's not my fault. Everything I've tried to do with magic has had some kind of result. I read on message boards that people have done magic and had "no result," and either I'm special, or they're doing something differently. ("Differently" is a nice way for me to say they're doing it wrong, but I'm really trying to be nice because I pissed people off with the Fuck George Carlin post. Those sensitive little [expletives deleted] mean a lot to me.)

Please note, I'm NOT referencing Jason's blog or experiences any more in this post. He just got this thought train aimed in the direction it's going in. I'm not saying my magic is better than Jason's, and I want to make sure that's not how this comes across. He's got a lot more experience and successes under his belt than I do, and I've got nothing but respect for him.

Yesterday I touched on one aspect of why I don't consider a ritual complete until I've succeeded, and how that makes for fewer "failures," per se, but today I'd like to point out something else that can make some folks uncomfortable. But don't freak out.

One of the things that makes my magic so effective, in my own most humble opinion, is that I am a Christian magician. Most of the Magic I do is based on some form of the Christian Neoplatonic systems that Agrippa recorded in his Three Books of Occult Philosophy. That makes it pretty easy. I also have several assurances from God, the ultimate creator of the physical and spiritual spheres, that I don't have to worry about making my magic work; he does it for me.

And the thing is, he does it for everyone, every human being made in his image, if that person wants him to. Just get to now God a bit, spend time in his presence. Feel him, know that you are his child, an emanation from him in his own image, created to spend eternity with. Remember your race and your value to God. It's worth the time spent.

And don't worry about Christianity or Judaism, or Zen states, just pour your heart out into meeting your Source, your Creator, the Prime Mover, the All-Seeing eye, whatever. Get to know him, and let him guide you. He'll guide you to your HGA, he'll guide you to the things you have to do before you die. He's totally cool to hang out with. He never eats all the Cheetos.

And he won't let any word fall to the ground without it bearing much fruit. He tells the seeds to bloom, sort of, indirectly, and he makes sure that your words will bear much fruit too.

Oh yeah, He expects you to think before you say stupid shit.
