I agree and at the same time disagree with Gabby2011, there are conspiracies and a lot of things remain 'occult' and hidden because of the human
nature of things that when one achieves some level of power that wish to retain it,, so the '''PTB'' (Powers That Be) keep the lid on certain
things so their 'secrets' remain safe. Mostly it is an issue of 'Perspective' and perspective alone in most cases, thus the Illusion references
by those who ''know'' the 'secret'.
I also do not really care for the book,, and damage done by magical thinking,,, ,,but ,,, funny ,,this is also coming from someone who has practiced
Magick, for over 35 years or so. The school of Hard Knocks was the great Teacher for me, and trial and error proved,, at least to me, that the OP is
correct (to a point) about the Matrix aspects of reality, and our ability to shape it to suit our minds and perceptions. The World we live in should
be proof enough that Mind alters Reality, but we tend to want to say God or the Devil did most of it, so that leaves humans as just bystanders in a
Spiritual war that is evidently Eternal.
Over the years, I have developed my own Theory of Practice in this regards,, and Others out there have Capitalized and made big bucks on the Correct
knowledge that Humans ARE POWERFUL beyond present expectations and examples, and can do much that seems Supernatural, Miraculous and Reality Bending.
The problem is I could explain all day long (and when I have my 20 posts down, and my intro up I will in my own thread) how I ''tweak''' the
Matrix to suit ones will and needs,,,, altering reality,,, bending physics, and making 'Quantum Jumps' [registered trademark of one of those selling
this info out there] and am able to ,, ,,, as I call it,,,,, Change the Universe. But it is like this....
A Master Pianist may show a child how he can play Chopin or Mozart flawlessly with eyes closed,,, and the child thinks Impossible (for themself) but
it is the nature of expertise. And of course came with hours, days, years of Practice, Practice,,,,, and more Practice. (and some Natural Talents and
Gifts to boot) But in the end,, it is possible for the child to play the same.
It is an ability humans have,, we can learn to do almost anything,,
Changing Reality is one of those things we can do also that just seems,,, well,,,, Impossible,,, but is not.
Knowing the 'trick' is the trick.
It is very Zen koan-ish. or Taoist.
If you can name it,,, it is not the Tao.
The Knowing how comes after learning to Hear One Hand Clap.
So, my thought to both Gabby2011 and b3l13v3,, is to both,,,
Keep an Open Mind,,
and Don't fall for every "Secret" buster out there.
The secret I Live and work by is...........
There are NO Secrets.
The Ones that exist are out there for the decoding and revealing,,,, but someone has to do the 'Work' to know the Secret....... paradox.
and for some of us that is the Great Work.
for others Impossible.
