good for you for pointing these things out
the word 'occult' has absolutely nothing to do with "good" or "bad" and "right" or "wrong" and NOT even "god" and "devil"
occult simply means HIDDEN
And with occultism there is a duality that happens
depending on who one is listening to
ie; The ego of oneself or the spirit of the Prime Creator.
very good description!
this is how i understand it:
every soul is both yin and yang (light and shadow)
but most people only know their "light" self, denying through fear and judgment, the dark side of themselves.
a few people in the world live the same way, only opposite. these are the serial killers and despots.
but when the hidden (occult) is explored without fear but with trust in GOD (regardless of specifics, everyone should trust "their" GOD implicitly
and constantly)....the hidden face of self comes into view.
this face is very scary to those who do not trust their GOD but instead feel fearful and alone.
they ARE not alone, but they feel that they are. so they let fear overtake them again.
but if there is courage and trust, then they are given the strength to accept, understand, experience, and finally merge with, their own part of the
so in the end, duality is overcome and is forgotten. it becomes as if it never had been
Too often than not, it is easy to get tripped up in ones ego when one sees the potential abuse of new found powers that one can utilize when
studying; Occultism, Mysticism, and all Esoterica.
there is a "safety" built into the system, however. it is ultimately a single source, from which all the forces arise - i'll say "GOD the
UNIVERSE" for simplicity - and there is no possible way that anyone who is not pure-hearted is going to be granted the ability to do any magic(k)
that can really do any harm to themselves or anyone else.
no matter how well one masters the magick of spells, circles, and charms, they are still only allowed to advance within a certain parameter. if there
is a desire and effort toward Agape, then the heart becomes purer through love, and love becomes easier to live, and so on. as thresholds are crossed
and new distances bridged, the potential for magick is likewise expanded. this is a slow process but all processes must run their course according to
humanity's cadence because spirit's pace is faster than the speed of light.
but if there is no change and improvement, within, abilities and opportunities will remain severely limited and can not be moved by any thing that
anyone thinks to do.
there are fail-safes in more areas of our life than we realize.
