magicians. However when one reaches true enlightenment I doubt if magick will even be necessary.

No offense taken at all. I don't disagree with anything you've said at all.
Magick, Enlightenment, Ascension, Christ-Consciousness, Human learning and development, even evolution all take place under the same process you
talked about above. In some cases a gradual repealing of the self over many different incarnations and lives. In fact if you look at it from the view
point of enlightenment, which is realization that all is 1 and 1 is 0, the you can see quite plainly and matter of factly the truth of this statement,
as every other life and possibility that is and has ever played out is quite literally you. So what does that mean?
What I try to get at when I write posts like this is that underlying our development is a process that can be known and engaged with. In effect
speeding up natural evolution by using its own method but at a faster pace. There was never anything more to magick or alchemy than this. The metaphor
of turning lead into gold is an analogy for controlling the process of conscious evolution to turn the lead man in a single life time into the
Spiritual Prima Materia.
There is no Magick, no Ego, no Path, no learning. There is a gradual unfolding realization of what is already there, such as the interconnection
between all things, the fact that separateness is an illusion and there is only one thing, when that realization is entered into, fully embodied and
lived - then you will be enlightened.
So while on the surface it may seem to you that I am speaking of new age beliefs what you see through my words is your understanding. It is that
understanding that allows us to see our own development and begin to discern an observable personal path to power.
I am bound to generalities because I cannot tell someone their path or how to go about it for themselves.That is not my place and I understand that -
unlike the majority or spiritual and religious traditions today. Instead I am trying to get to the place of understanding that gives power to these
beliefs, the place where our personal power becomes bound to an ego structure or idea, so that a person can begin to take this power back to use as
How one decides to use this isn't my concern. The fact that very few people will ever get it isn't my concern. I am many years on this path and no
longer a young man. A lot of what I write will be influenced by the obstacles and challenges I have come up against, or what I needed to see looking
back. But I realize that whats most important is to realize that process for ones self.
So by undergoing mental development, critical analysis, and playing around with forms and beliefs we add different operations to our inner structures,
kind of like radiation markers, which allow us to observe when this 'marker' comes to rise. Doing this and repeating this over and over again can
show a person what is going on inside them, how ideas come together within them and finally how one can work with them to manifest better versions of
themselves, more in line with a higher concept of self.
Of course people still have the freedom not to do any of this or believe any of this, but again that's not my concern.
