Law and Order (Dun Dun)

The magical universe is just like the physical universe; it follows certain laws and has an order to it. These laws are discovered in the same ways the laws of the physical universe are found out. Observation, hypothesis, experimentation are the foundations for discovering and utilizing magical theory and putting them into application. Sometimes these laws are quite simple and mundane. Take for instance a job I had when I was 19. I was what was commonly called a “go-fer’” I would go for this and go for that, I worked at a shooting range and basically be in charge of repairs, cleaning, maintenance among many other duties to numerous to list. When business got slow I would sweep and mop the store front. That is when I noticed, the minute I had almost finished mopping business would boom. We would have not a single customer all day, but once I had almost finished mopping customers a plenty would rush through the door. So, if I applied this bit of magical insight and wanted customers I could mop the floors and in a sense this was a ritual to summon customers. While doing the daily things of life observe patterns and things that seem to repeat, that is where you can make the most simple ritual work for you. It goes without saying that this works on a macro-level scale as well, you can change the universe through the most simple of rituals by following prescribed rules and order.
But where do you discover these rules, laws and order? From within! As above, so below, as within so without. What is within you on the micro level scale corresponds to what occurs on the macro level scale which can feel like solipsism at times. An example of this that is more humorous than really useful is when I watched MST3K “Manos Hands of Fate” with my wife and told her, “You know what, Hollywood loves remaking really good movies because; hell, it’s easy! What they should really do is remake really bad movies (this being considered one of the worst movies of all time, up there with Plan 9…)” Sure enough almost a few months later I hear that Rob Zombie is planning a remake of the film (this was a few years back and it seems he has dropped the idea.) While this was not magical in the least (I had no real will behind anyone remaking such a bad film and on top of that I hate Rob Zombie movies) you probably have had experiences like this as well. You think of an idea and it occurs in some way, leaving you pondering where was the origin, did you manifest your will or did you receive a cosmic thought about a really crappy movie? Is there a difference?

1. As above, so below. As within, so without. By observation I discover how things change and manifest within me and my sphere which allows me insight on how to perform rituals that will cause change in the universe in accordance with my will. Mastery of this allows me to enact rituals within my mind that can cause changes in the world.

2. If I work with the laws of nature, the rules of magical correspondence then all of nature works with me in my goals. If I feel inspired to work magic that is a sign the universe is moving me and is working through me to produce results, I am an agent of the divine, my work is to bring about change, I am a medium of the divine mind and will.

3. My mind is connected to the eternal, my imagination is a reflection of the astral and mental realms, what I think and imagine is produced and moves things towards manifestation into the physical plane.

4. Everything I experience was once imagined and produced. This is magical. The chair I sit upon was once in the mind of another, that person manifested their will and imagination. This screen and computer which I am reading these words on is and was created and maintained by the wills and imaginations of many. There is nothing around me that was not shaped, crafted or made wholesale from the mind. Including myself.

5. The universe follows laws and order. These laws come from the mind of god which I am a part of. Nothing can break the natural laws and order but there is a near infinite amount of things that can be done within these laws and orders so that the universe manifests my desire. There may only be 7 colors in a rainbow and three primary colors but within those choices lie an infinite range of hues, shades and tones. Limitation gives rise to greatness.

    1. Well technically these blogs are usually written out in my head a week or two in advance. I just have to get the final "ok, that is it!" moment where I think I have all of the threads and ideas together. For this series it has been about a month in the making. All of them are prepared in my mind, it is just getting the time and motivation to do them instead of a hundred other things I could be doing (Like re-watching Sherlock for the third time haha)
      Glad you are working them! Once they sink and are a part of your belief as much as your other beliefs then they really pay off.

  2. Justin, if you don't mind me asking, is the ultimate goal of the Magician to escape the world of the demiurge by achieving gnosis?

    I've been reading into gnosticism lately and this seemed to parallel with the Buddhist idea of escaping the wheel of reincarnation.


    Thanks! :)

    1. Well, that is a toughy. You see magicians are not one organization. We do not all agree. Different magicians have different beliefs, goals, theories and practices.

      My ultimate goal, and what I believe the ultimate goal of all sentient life is, to reunite with divinity. For the universe to consciously be one thing. Do not get me wrong, in a way it is now. You see the universe started out as ONE and divided into MANY in order to learn and discover. Spirit had to totally sink into matter and will eventually totally rise up bringing matter back to spirit so all can be divine again but a greater divine than before. That is my view, and one I attained after looking at the evidence of what magic presented me. I have minor goals in between the major goal but it leads to the major goal of total unity. You may come up with your own, and if it is based of the evidence of your experience it is true and good and it is right.

      Yes Gnosticism is heavily influenced by the Eastern concept of the physical world is to be avoided and removed. This in my opinion makes bad magicians. The greatest magicians are those that love the universe for it is a part of them and they to the universe. If you think and feel the universe is vile and should be escaped from than magic will be very disappointing to you. Think of creation as your lover. Is she more likely to work with you and shower you with all you wish if you treat her like a queen and adore her or if you revile her and beat her?

    2. Then, at the end of the road for only the loss of individuality? You can not be dissolved after the I soul back, only more evolved? Or even create your own creation?

    3. Well by following the path of western magic it will seem like *you* become god. However, it is after years of transformation so that it is really you becoming more and more like divinity. Like if every few months someone snuck in and swapped a part of you out and replaced it with god and you did not really notice until one day you realize you are mostly divine.

    1. We often take words and develop meanings to them instead of realizing the experience that originally prompted the words. I think you know the answer, you have a deep emotional and meaningful connection. That is a soul mate.

    1. Excellent and noble goal. Did you receive this from your HGA or Sandelphon or is it a personal goal?
