The Myth of the Will

For pure will, unassuaged of purpose, delivered from the lust of result, is every way perfect. —The Book of the Law, Chapter I, Verse 44 Willpower is the key to success. Successful people strive no matter what they feel by applying their will to overcome apathy, doubt or fear. —Dan Millman, author of Way of […]

Throw Out the LWB?

One of the blogs I like to read is by Alan Joel, called the Esoteric School of Shamanism and Magic Blog. In his most recent post he advises that when you get a new Tarot deck you should “throw away the book that comes with the Tarot deck.” By that I assume he means the “Little […]

Magick and the Nature of Evil

If you’ve ever seen a “slasher” film, this scenario is going to be familiar to you: The mad, “pure evil” slasher comes after his victim with an axe. There’s a loud “thump!” and a scream. The victim looks in horror at his shoulder, now issuing copious spurts of fake red blood. Jason Voorhees character from […]

A Ohe Pau Ko Ike I Kou Halau

As I mentioned in my previous blog post, I recently assisted at a training for 175 people who wanted to be certified as NLP practitioners. In that post I wrote that “NLP [Neuro-Linguistic Programming] is a set of tools that will allow you to communicate better with yourself (between the conscious and subconscious mind) as […]

Five Keys for Magickal Success

Currently, I am in Irvine, California, assisting in a Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) training. NLP is a set of tools that will allow you to communicate better with yourself (between the conscious and subconscious mind) as well as communicate better with others in order to achieve ecological goals. For the purposes here, ecology means good for […]

“Help me, Obi Wan Kenobi. You’re my only hope.”

Do you remember the first time you heard that line? I do. There had been an enormous line around the theater in San Diego. A friend and I walked to the front of the line and asked if there were any tickets left for the current show. “Only in the front row,” we were told. […]

The Map is NOT the Territory

The expression “the map is not the territory” is a concept found in Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP). It’s meaning is very similar to the concept of Maya in Tantra. In ancient Tantric concepts, as in modern Western science, the physical universe is seen as an incredible collection of energy. The stars are energy. The chair you’re sitting […]

French Lick?

Yes, I know the name sounds like something from a bad porno film. In actuality, French Lick, Indiana, is a real town. It is the home town of NBA great Larry Bird. People visiting the casinos there included boxer Joe Lewis and gangster Al Capone. Franklin D. Roosevelt announced his intention to run for President here. […]

Remembering the Past

Many years ago, when I lived in San Diego, I was a member of the Rosicrucian Brotherhood, AMORC, and a founding member of the lodge there. Most people familiar with AMORC from their at one time omnipresent ads in magazines such as Popular Mechanics and FATE know them for their mail order lessons. What many […]

The Map is Not the Territory

A few mornings ago I received a phone call from a friend on the opposite side of the country. Alay’nya started out as a hard-driving scientific researcher. We met at a psychic fair in San Diego where she came and received a Tarot reading from me. Although we’ve rarely seen each other in person, we […]
