For a long time I dismissed the common advice to just “feel good”. Like so many others, I wanted to just make it happen NOW! And, I was often successful. But, the result of such force was not very enjoyable to me.
With the effortlessness challenge I did a few weeks ago, I’ve been making a special effort to raise my vibration in every area of life.
And the results have been nothing less than miraculous.
Essentially, ever since doing this, everything has gotten easier. Things which I thought were impossible have simply dropped into my lap.
I’m not perfect at it, and I’m not sure anyone could ever be. But I’m getting far better at it, and it hasn’t taken long for life to respond in kind.
I believe that letting go of the problems in life and just feeling better, is a way of uniting with your whole Self. As such, it’s an indispensable part of what I’m calling the Path of Dark Ascent. Lucifer has also called it the Path of the Tao, for various reasons I won’t go into here (sorry).
I know, this seems rather simplistic, perhaps even cliche. I thought so, too. But I cannot overestimate the value of this alchemical process of uniting with your greater Self.
It’s not just about thinking about happy things. It’s about discovering, and uniting with, the happiness that you already are. It’s not about positive thinking, but more about letting go of the illusion that anything is wrong, or that you are lacking anything.
Once you can master this, you will nearly instantaneously have anything you set your mind on. You will no longer be at odds with yourself.
I’ve been talking a bit about the Tao and how it fits into magick.
What I’ve discussed here is just the beginning of that: about working with life instead of forcing your will in opposition to it.
In the near future, I am planning on starting a new course called (preliminarily) 81 Days to Effortlessness.
This course will take the principles of the Tao Te Ching—the book that’s helped me to get the best results in my own life—and apply them to the Path of Dark Ascent and creating anything you want.
Essentially, it’ll show you how to work with the Tao instead of against it, by balancing the forces of light and dark in yourself and your creations.
I’m going to do something similar to what I did with the launch of the newsletter.
Specifically, I’m asking for those who are interested in this upcoming course to reach out and let me know.
It’ll most likely be a self-study course, so pretty low-stress and self-paced.
If you are interested and reach out now, I’ll give you an early bird discount to the course when it is launched.
If you have questions, also let me know and I’ll be happy to answer them.
I hope to hear from you soon!
