When being busy with the "soul searching" (personal development) you get to know the real you. By doing so you will learn and notice what it means
to do stuff according to your true will.
Now if you do something according to that true will you won't feel regret and such since it is the right thing to do for you.
So if someone does an act which another individual judges as "wrong" doesn't mean that YOU are wrong if it is accordance with your true will.
Catch my drift?
A reply to you is in the length of what I mentioned towards w801i.
People are full of barrieres and masks and are capable of fooling their own rational/ego. But deep down they can, and probably will, feel some form of
negative emotion about what they did towards another. Even if an individual ignores it won't make that go away no matter how deep they bury it within
The more they resist it, the deeper they will bury it...the harder it will show up again. Pushing it down requires so much adrenaline and in due time
you can't keep it up since it tired you out.
Now this doesn't mean that it was the case, but it might be after all.
Also in my opinion in response of what Count Germails Lovechild mentioned. Magick is far from mere smoke and mirrors if you know what to do and how it
works. The occult is a path with a very small thread of balance that each practitioner seemss to try and achieve.
This balance is also important in the context of "feeling"(heart) and "knowing" (mind). New-Agers and Fluffy Bunnies have too much heart while
Scientists have too much mind. Occultists try to achieve the best of both worlds.
Within the occult there is no need to be a middle man or a student...then again we're all students of life anyway so there is no escaping of being a
student. There are more solitary practitioners then there are people who are a part of a Lodge or Temple.
And yes it is possible to influence nature to make it rain or not. So limiting yourself to only yourself...well if that is what you want be my guest.
The only thing to know is that you can't get control over the universe unless you stop wanting to have control to begin with.
