The basis of all change is love.
There was a time that I would have scoffed at this statement, but I’ve come to see that it is absolutely true.
I have called this effortlessness, and indeed that is also true, but effortlessness is a byproduct of love. It’s what has to exist when love is present.
When it is realized that the very Universe is love, then there is nothing to do but to be effortless. There are no more threats. There is nothing to resist. The ego can stop trying to control things.
Yet the source of all change is will. Will is the means by which you build your life as you want it to be. It is what allows you to decide what you’d like to have, and then just have it.
The twin forces of will and love are the complete story. The interaction of these two forces is creation itself.
To will without love is suffering. I did that for a while, and in truth you can make some progress with will alone, but it is incredibly painful. You may get what you want, but it’ll be a shadow of the complete manifestation. Or, you may get nothing at all, depending on the strength of your will.
This is the way most black magicians do it, and I’ve called this hard black magick in the past.
To love alone is to surrender to what is and yet not to change it. It’s the way of yogis and ascetics meditating in a cave somewhere. It can sometimes be successful when you give up all agency to the Universe, such as in the case of Michael Singer in his book, The Surrender Experiment. But, we can have more control than this.
This is the path of white magick, simply surrendering yourself to the Universe and giving up your personal will.
But there is a new paradigm, which I have been calling soft black magick, or sometimes black magick 2.0.
It is the way of uniting will and love into one path. It is to will what you want, and yet to love it all so as to resist nothing. When you resist nothing, then you can have anything by a mere thought—a simple act of will.
This new paradigm is what I’ll be sharing in my new course, 81 Days to Effortless Success. I’ll be teaching the principles of the Tao Te Ching, but also showing you how to apply this to the new paradigm of soft black magick—showing you how to use the forces of will and love to have anything you want, effortlessly.
