Have you heard or read stuff about, how to tell if someone likes ya? I believe many of us do, and of course we’re all curious to know what are the signs and behaviors that others display when they are attracted to us.
The keyword here is ATTRACTED. You see, I kinda get amused when I see so many places giving a list of the things that are supposed to tell you what to look for when someone is interested in you. Well first of all, only some of the things stated are actual signs that show someone is attracted to you. Those are the signs that cut straight to the core and tell that he or she is undoubtably attracted to you. The rest of the signs are… well, they only show that they like you. That’s all.
When people like you, it doesn’t always mean that they are interested in you. When they are interested in you, they don’t always show that they like you. In fact, in many cases, they may even behave as though they don’t like you! Well anyway, the idea that I had in mind for this post is to write about love, liking and attraction. I’ll talk about love first.There are different types of love. Yes we all know about the greek words of the four major types of love. Agape (Spiritual and sacrificial love), Phileo (Friendship and Kindness Love), Eros (Romantic and Sexual Love) and Storge (Kinship and Familial Love).
But when I’m talking about love, I will ask what is the type, the level, the intensity and the depth of the love? Those are the four factors that defines it. There are different types of love. You can love someone as a friend, you can love someone as a cousin/sister/brother. You can love someone with the love of the lord. You can love someone as a superstar you adore. You can love someone as the love of your life. There are different levels of love. How much agape is present in that love? Agape varies in different amounts. To what extent do you have the person’s best interest at heart. To what extent do you naturally consider their needs without first being conscious of yours? How much care do you have for them? There are different intensities of love. The amount of passion, the amount of fire and the amount of energy that you have in your love for that person determines the intensity of that love. How much force is there, how much power and how much focus? Is it like a flood of warm sunlight shining on that person or is it like a laser beam completely targeted and burning ferociously with such intensity and fire? There are different depths of love. How deep does that love go? Is it so deeply in rooted layers within layers that it’s almost next to impossible to remove? Can it come one moment and go the next, or will it remain forever even to the very ends of time and space?
About liking and attraction. There is a difference between liking someone and being attracted to someone. There is a difference between loving and being in love. There is a difference between affection and attraction. There is a difference between compassionate love and passionate love.
So what is the difference that makes the difference, for all the above? It is simply this: You can find yourself attracted to a number of people but you can only be in love with one. You can love many people, but you can only be in love with one. Why is that so? Because there’s only room for person in your heart at any one time. If there are two, it means one is the real one and the other is not. Or else for one to come, the other must go. It’s THE special place of your heart. Heart of hearts or heart within hearts. Secret heart.
I hope you don’t misunderstand me here. It’s the special place for a relationship with a love partner or soulmate, although there are many special places for other kinds of love as well, even God’s love in your secret heart. There is a DIFFERENCE between LOVING and being IN LOVE. Being IN LOVE is a different KIND OF LOVE. It is the KIND OF LOVE meant for MARRIAGE, THE ONE and ONLY. That is God’s design. That is why everyone desires THE ONE. You can LOVE MANY but you can only be IN LOVE with ONE.
As for love itself, you can’t say really say one kind of love is better than another. Sometimes a love that loves too much and loves too deeply can hurt so much. Sometimes it’s better to love with a carefee kind of love because it can’t really be hurt too much. Both kinds of love are real but different.
They say never love a love that hurts. And never hurt a love that loves. But you will always hurt a love that loves somehow in some way, but it will continue loving because it is a love that loves. And when you truly love a person a lot, it can hurt because you do not just desire for the person but you desire the person as well.
And you’d also choose someone who not only loves you but also wants you, wouldn’t you? Don’t just marry someone you can live with, marry someone you can’t live without.
But don’t be someone who is needy and insecure. Be someone who is powerful, complete and whole. That in itself is attractive.

When you want to get something, ask yourself if you are getting it in order to give it to others or are you getting it to keep it for yourself. You might think you are getting it to give it to others, but if it is not part of the best gift that you have to give, then focus on getting that which enables you to give more of your best gift instead. Your best gift is the greatest value that you have to offer, because no one else is able to give it like you. It is your unique talent, knowledge or potential.
In life, there are many things that come our way which seem to promise us the ability to attain all that we desire. There are various paths that we can create wealth and different opportunities to make a difference in this world. What we all really want ultimately is to be fulfilled. That can only be a result of becoming all that we were meant to be, and doing all that we were meant to do. Everything that we acquire in life is to support us in fulfilling our purpose to the greatest extent.
There are many things that we are able to do that will benefit others and ourselves. As long as we are creating value in this world, we will gain value for ourselves as well. Society offers you so many ways to serve and to contribute. You could choose any of those ways and still do good to people. But that is still not good enough, because you were meant for more. You were created with a purpose that only you alone can best fulfill. Your purpose is the area where you can give your greatest gift. Just doing what you are good at is not really good enough. You have to do what you are best at. By choosing to give something good that is not really what you are best at, you are depriving the world from the benefit of the best gift you could offer. Therefore, of all the ways that you could choose to serve, pick the one that enables you to live your true potential. Choose opportunities that will unleash your greatest talent. Choose to contribute in a way that allows you to be the best that you can be.
When you focus on that one path that supports you in doing your best work, all other opportunities are really distractions. True freedom does not come from being open to all opportunities, but it comes from closing yourself to everything else except what is best for you. When you lock into your purpose, you free yourself to maneuver within it and you free yourself from being distracted by other things. You are free from all other things to focus fully on that one thing.
Everything that we get enables us to give even more. We are blessed to be a blessing. We desire to be wealthy so that we can express abundance to others. We want to become more powerful so that we can better empower others. We want to be as happy as we can be so that we can give others as much happiness as we can give. It is all for the expression of who we are to the people we love. We want to express all the love we desire to express by being all the love that we are. We can only give what we have, and we can only have more of what we choose to obtain. The things we acquire determines the things we have to give. Therefore if we want to give the best that we can offer, we should choose to acquire those things that enable us to give our best gift. Spend your time in learning the kind of knowledge that enables you to give your best knowledge. Invest in tools and systems that directly make an impact on improving your core business.
Success is a matter of focus. You have to focus on what you are taking in and what you are giving out. If you take something that only supports you in contributing at a lesser area, you will have less to contribute in your greatest area. If you focus all your acquiring and contributing in areas that are aligned with your true potential, you will create maximum success in fulfilling your highest purpose. That is why you don’t need to get everything that others are getting, but only that which is best for you to get. When seen from the perspective of acquiring in order to contribute, it changes the way we select what things to obtain for ourselves. Every resource that we spend should be in exchange for a better resource in its value to increase our ability to give more of our best gifts. When we get something of lesser purpose, we may enjoy for the short term, but on the long term we will end up feeling empty. Acquiring and contributing what is of eternal value requires us to sacrifice what’s good or even great for what’s best.

It is very difficult to determine the exact therapeutic value of any remedy, unless the element of suggestion in its application be carefully weighed and considered. A drug plus suggestion is very different from the same drug minus the suggestion. The real healing power resides within the patient himself, and any method that serves to arouse that inherent power will tend toward the cure. The method that is capable of arousing that power to the greatest degree is the best method for that particular patient.
There is a well known case of a “Sacred Bone” from the middle ages which had the wonderful power to heal diseases. This bone was brought from the Holy Land by two soldiers of the crusades, and was supposed to be a part of the remains of a saint in the new testament. It was only many years later when one of the soldiers confessed the truth on his deathbed that the real relic had been lost because they were drunk. Fearing to return home without it, they substituted the bone of a sheep.
Much to their surprise, the sheep bone operated just as well in its power to heal people. Therefore they agreed to keep silent about the matter. It was the faith and belief of the people about the healing power of the object that acted as a powerful form of suggestion to bring healing to their bodies through the power of their subconscious mind. But after the disclosure of the true nature of the relic, the cures ceased at once, and many of those who had been healed became sick again.
That is why Christ said it is your faith that makes you whole. He also said to the woman he had cured to go in peace which actually means to go into Shalom. A person once cured has to remain in a state of wholeness, peace and serenity of consciousness. Otherwise the disease would return or another one would occur. Health is a state of being and all disease is created by instability of consciousness and emotional turmoil. That is why it is called dis-ease, a lack of ease within that manifest without.
The greater the amount of emotive power and expectant attention that the healer is able to arouse in the patient, the better are the chances of a cure. Certain rituals and spiritual practices are the means to arouse such emotions and expectations. The proper way to use suggestion would be to let the patient know how it operates and then to use it to treat him. But sometimes they may be largely ignorant, and attempting to explain the scientific principles of suggestion may simply bewilder and mystify them.
Therefore the best way to treat a very ignorant patient is to cure him first and then explain as far as possible later. The best way to administer the suggestion of treatment is by means of any placebo accompanied by strong positive repeated suggestions of what the substance taken will do for the patient. Many cases reached this way could not be reached with ordinary suggestion because the patient wouldn’t understand it. A placebo instead of a pure suggestion would also assist the healing process greatly. Disease is caused by the failure of cells to do their duty.
The trouble may arise from the inefficiency or rebellion of a single cell, which then spreads its contagion to those around it or else to a rebellion on the part of a group of cells. The disease is cured either when the rebellious cells are forced to resume normal functioning, or else when they have been discarded and destroyed and replaced by new healthy normal cells which perform the tasks that their predecessors have abandoned. Excellent results may be obtained by assuming that the cells, organs or parts are “entities” capable of understanding the suggestions and are responding to them. There is mind in the cells and organs and parts, that is responsive to suggestive influence. This cells vary in intelligence and personality. The cells in the liver differ from the cells in the heart or stomach. Some respond to coaxing and gentle suggestions while others require more commanding and forceful suggestions to obey and obey they will. Auto suggestion is suggestion given by oneself to oneself. All suggestion is really auto suggestion because the active force manifested in suggestion is called into play by the individual himself, usually involuntarily. The power is entirely within the mind of the person himself, although it may require assistance from some outside person to call it into effect. Many of the cures claimed by suggestion in its many forms are really due to the auto suggestion of the patient, pure and simple.
The nearer one comes to perfect playing out of the dual role of suggestor and suggestee, the better will be the result and the clearer will be the impression on the subconscious mind. Speak to yourself in the third person. It is as though God is speaking to you. Say to yourself “You feel energized and happy”, “Every part of you is filled with life and rejuvenating strength”, “You are strong, vibrant and well.” Let it be suggestion instead of affirmation, where the “I” of the person suggests to the Me.
All suggestions should be directed towards the conditions that are desired, rather than towards the eradication of the conditions that are not desired. Disease is not a thing in itself, it is merely the negation of health. Since all suggestions act towards the thing being suggested, the suggestion should be frame in a way that mentions only the desired condition and not the undesirable one. Steadily refuse to even talk disease and speak only along the lines of health and wellbeing.
The various affirmations, denials and statements of metaphysical practices are but forms of auto suggestion and their results are obtained along its lines. Each person may claim that his way is the true way and all other ways are counterfeits. Some even say that other ways may cure but only their way truly heals. But all forms of healing through different religious styles, spiritual practices and medical methods all have their common base of working, which is suggestion. It is the universal power of God.

It is the level of resonance or dissonance between our consciousness and that of others that determines the kind of interaction what we have with them. The level of significance that others play in our lives is not how frequently we interact with them, but how meaningfully we do so. We may cross paths with a background character everyday but they leave only a fading impression on our souls. There are some we meet only once but the experience is so meaningful that it marks us for life. Our consciousness has many frequencies of thoughts and emotions. The more frequencies we share with another, the more we have in common and the more connections we have. When one party is not consciously aware of the common frequencies that is shared with another, the person will still be unconsciously attracted into inexperience and interaction on a continual basis. But when we consciously discover and reveal the frequencies with each other, the channels of interaction open up.
It is the lack of awareness about common frequencies by either party that causes the misperception of differences. Thinking of others as not like us is what creates separation. When we find that they are so much like us, it brings a sense of oneness and connectedness. If you want to connect and unite with another, focus on the similarities and what you both have in common instead of the differences. Do this especially with someone you have love for and desire to experience that love with.
Love seeks to unite while fear causes separation. When you are loving, you seek unity of consciousness through understanding and harmony of perception. When you are fearing, you create separation of consciousness through ignorance and conflict of perception. Stop fearing and be loving. Love and understanding reconciles all separation and integrates all perception into one. When you are of one mind, you fully understand each other and have awareness of what’s going on in the relationship as a whole.
You may not really be perceiving fully when you feel that you are able to perceive everything that another is speaking but that person is unable to perceive everything that you are speaking. Your misperception may be creating the experience of misunderstanding. Of course there are times when you really are able to perceive everything about where the person is coming from but they are not able to perceive where you are coming from. But if it is someone you love, you are probably misperceiving as well. The very fact that you have love for someone means you have many frequencies in common on an unconscious level. That emotion of love is the energy of resonance. Sometimes you may not even be aware of that love, but if you are aware then you can use it as a sign to explore deeper about the person. The appearance of differences is usually an illusion when actually in the areas where you think you are different from each other, you are both actually very much the same or even exactly alike.
Fear is what causes misunderstanding. You are afraid to be authentic and dare not express the deeper connection you have with another because you are afraid to be hurt by not being accepted. Fear is an illusion that makes you think that you must hide your real thoughts and feelings in order to prevent the other person from rejecting them and breaking of the connection with you. Your fear causes you to perceive the other person’s words and actions as signs of rejection and resistance.
Fear is caused by ignorance. The way to stop fear is to see it for what it is, an illusion. Awareness overcomes ignorance and fear. With awareness, you are free to love. There is no fear in perfect love. You can only be perfect in love by gaining awareness. Love with awareness and you can do the things that unite instead of doing the things that separate. To love perfectly is to love with understanding. That is how we all want to be loved. It is the kind of love that brings us closer and experience intimacy.
Dissonance may be weak or strong between two people or an individual with a group. When dissonance is weak, repulsion manifest as apathy or emotional uneasiness. That is why sometimes others say that they feel uncomfortable, uneasy or awkward in your presence. When dissonance is strong, repulsion manifest as conflict and emotional fire that can escalate to the point of severing the interaction physically and mentally between the dissonant parties.
They may cross paths but only in a superficial manner. If they are forced to interact or communicate, there is bound to be mutual misunderstanding and lack of interest at best and aversion or confrontation at worst. We should not force ourselves to interact with people we do not have true emotional resonance with for the sake of being nice or friendly. We are doing ourselves and them a disservice for not doing things because we are guided by our hearts to do but because we think we should. Any person that enters into your sphere of experience is because you attracted that person in, and that person has attracted you into theirs. You never have to feel as if you don’t deserve to be in anybody’s presence because if they are there with you, it means you have every right to be there. It is co-intention that results in both of you entering into each other’s sphere of experience in the first place. Knowing this, you can have freedom to do whatever you want, wherever you want with whoever you want.
There are people we are meant to interact with because they are part of our life path. We would feel the desire to connect with them and therefore it is up to us to establish and build the connection by uncovering the common frequencies and clearing the dissonance. Awareness is what helps us to know how we are causing dissonance which results in emotional uneasiness and conflict. We are then able to create more conscious and unconscious resonance in order to experience real love with each other.

Suggestion is very prevalent in business. We are told “Uneeda Biscuit” or that “Coke is The Real Thing” or that “Puffer Cigars are Fragrant” or that “Have a Break, have a Kit Kat”. Everywhere we go, we are hit with messages containing some cleverly worded phrase, telling us either to do something or that a certain thing is true, in both instances the statement being connected with a certain product or idea. All these suggestions impress upon the public about the reality of the world whether true or not.
These advertisements seek first to arouse desire within us, and then to drive it home and transform thought into action by repetition of suggestion. There are some whose “want to” will be so vigorously aroused that they “must have it” in a day or so. Do not suppose for a moment that this clever advertising just “just happens” to catch your eye. These skilled advertisers, who are paid very large salaries, have been trained in the laws of suggestion, and they put their knowledge to practice every single day. Did you think that you bought a certain product because you were convinced from careful examination that it was just what you needed? Perhaps, but the truth is you bought it because the scientific advertiser had exerted his suggestions upon you, first by attracting your attention, and then by the insistent and repetitive statements regarding the fact that you needed that particular product. Of course the product may be good and well worth the money but the principle of suggestion was still in effect.
The psychological elements of a sale are implemented in a certain order. First the attention must be secured or else the salesman can proceed no further. Then follows the stage of interest or curiosity, which must be aroused before desire may be awakened. To arouse interest, the offer must be presented in an interesting manner with well chosen and properly delivered words. Then the desire is aroused for it is the motive power which leads to sales.
The customer must be made to want before buying. Masters of salesmanship and advertising understand the law of suggestion through repetition. They will artfully get in repeated suggestions by presenting the same statements in different terms, or by a flat repetition of an authoritative statement until the idea grows to be an old story with you, and one you never seem to question. Knowing that this is the way marketing works, you will never run out of ideas to market the same products to the same people over and over again.
Before the salesman uses suggestion on people, he uses it on himself first. Through auto suggestion, he impress himself with the idea of the value of the goods he is to offer to his customer, the fact that these goods are just what his customer needs and should have in his business, the fact that instead of asking a favor of his customer, the salesman is really doing him a good turn by bringing these goods to his attention. The salesman has to be sold on the product first before he attempts to sell to others. The salesman is also trained in the various psychological triggers that makes a person buy. He appeals to their desire for self improvement, recognition, convenience, social appeal, comfort, philanthropic aspirations and self gratification. It takes more brains to sell the goods than it takes to make them. Conviction may be imparted at will by those few writers who have closely studied the thought process by which conviction is induced. The mission of every ad is to convert readers into buyers.
Most people are just like everyone else. It is the natural inclination for people to blend in and be like one another. Original thought and individual style is more rare than generally imagined. Let a man show individuality of taste and action, and he will be looked upon as “weird”, “eccentric” and is avoided as “out of the ordinary” by the majority of people, unless he is sufficiently strong to force his ideas upon the crowd and thus set the fashion. Corporations create market demand by setting the trends. There is a tendency for the race to “get in line” or to “follow the leader.” To act like human sheep or geese makes it easy for them to fall into the habit of accepting suggestions. It is said that if the leader of a flock of sheep jumps over a rail of fence, the rest of the flock will follow. But when the rail is removed, the rest of the flock will continue jumping over the place where the rail had been.
That is why people still do certain unnecessary things in business to overcome obstacles that no longer exist. The value of a thing is usually formed by the suggestion of it. All products usually obtain their value by the suggestion of what they would do for their owners. That is why marketing is the key to all business transactions and commerce. Suggestion also influences what governments will do and the way people interact with each other. Suggestion is the force that rules the world more than anything else. Suggestion is the workings of consciousness, and everything is consciousness.

You develop your faculties of self-mastery in proportion to the extent you succeed in developing your powers of concentration.
Watch the next person you see that has the reputation of being a strong character, a man of force. Watch and see what a perfect control he has over his body. Then watch just an ordinary person. Notice how he moves his eyes, arms, fingers; notice the useless expenditure of energy. These movements all break down the vital cells and lessen the person’s power in vital and nerve directions. It is just as important for you to conserve your nervous forces as it is the vital forces.
The mind is associated with muscle and nerve. When you steady your nerves and muscles, you steady your mind, but let your nerves get out of order and your mind will become erratic and you will not possess the power of direction, which, in other words, is concentration. If the heart flutters, the circulation is not regular, and when the lung action is uneven, the mind becomes unsteady and not fit for concentration. This is why controlled breathing is very important as a foundation for physical health. The secret of controlling your emotions is in controlling your breathing. Your main physiological life function is your respiratory system.
You must not only concentrate your mind, but also the action of the eyes, ears and fingers. Each of these contains miniature minds that are controlled by the master engineer. You will develop much quicker if you thoroughly realize this.
The next time you feel yourself becoming irritable, use your will and be patient. This is a very good exercise in self-control. It will help you to keep patient if you will breathe slowly and deeply. If you find you are commencing to speak fast, just control yourself and speak slowly and clearly. Keep from either raising or lowering your voice and concentrate on the fact that you are determined to keep your poise, and you will improve your power of concentration.
Any exercises that give you better control of the ears, fingers, eyes, feet, help you to steady your mind; when your eye is steady, your mind is steady. One of the best ways to study a person is to watch his physical movements, for, when we study his actions, we are studying his mind. Because actions are the expressions of the mind. As the mind is, so is the action. If it is uneasy, restless, erratic, unsteady, its actions are the same. When it is composed, the mind is composed. Concentration means control of the mind and body. You cannot secure control over one without the other. The real benefit of physical cultivation is that when you learn to control the body, you are gaining control over the mind. Always observe what you are doing with your body and you will know what is happening with your mind. According to the principle of correspondence, there is mental muscle just as there is physical muscle. The more you use your will, the stronger it becomes and the less effort you need to assert for the same use over time. Unlike things on the physical level, things on the mental level can be built up almost immediately depending on the mind of the user.
Use your mental forces so that they will grow and develop. Remember that everything you do is the result of mental action, therefore you can completely control your every action. Nothing is impossible for you.
Many people who seem to lack ambition have sluggish minds. They are steady, patient and seemingly have good control, but this does not say they are able to concentrate. These people are indolent, inactive, slow and listless, because they lack energy; they do not lose control because they have little force to control. They have no temper and it therefore cannot disturb them. Their actions are steady because they possess little energy. The natural person is internally strong, energetic and forceful, but his energy, force and strength, thoughts and physical movements are well under his control. If a person does not have energy, both mental and physical, he must develop it. If he has energy which he cannot direct and hold to a point he must learn to do so. A man may be very capable, but, unless he Wills to control his abilities, they will not do him any good. Energy creation and control are all purely mental. The first step is to summon up lots of energy. The second step is to focus it. Control is concentrated power.
The more attention you can capture from someone, the more attention you have to manipulate. The more influence you have over them.
The one that stands up like a man and has control over the muscles of his face and eyes always commands attention. In his conversation, he can better impress those with whom he comes in contact. He acquires a feeling of calmness and strength that causes opposition to melt away before it.
The more energy you can summon up within yourself, the more energy you have to direct and the more magnetic influence you have.
You can gain energy from external stimulus such as music, dance, martial art and video or you can gain it within from imagination and memory. Raising your vibrations polarizes yourself more and more on the postive and increases your magnetic power.

The true nature of time is that it is multidimensional. There are not one but many lanes of time running ahead from the present into the future. All future events are probable and you can affect which probable event manifests with your mind. To do so, you only need to concentrate on the desired outcome of an event. Your mental energy would act to skew the probability of that event happening. This follows the principle of reality being altered to match expectation. By simply concentrating, you can create reality.
In quantum theory, any system may be described in terms a wave-function which is made up of a complex superposition of waves, the squared amplitude of each being related to the probability of an individual event occurring. The complete wave-function describes all possible outcomes of that system. Thus the wave-function of a coin-toss will describe the outcomes of heads or tails, with the amplitude of each being equal to the square-root of the fifty percent probability of either turning out as a head or a tail.
The problem is that this wave-function describes all the outcomes at once, whereas conscious experience tells us that we will observe only one outcome. This naturally led to the idea that conscious observation somehow affects the system, causing the wave-function to ‘collapse’ into one specific state, which the one we experience. This means that consciousness can actually choose, to some extent, which outcome actually occurs. This is a process which is very much like the concept of psychokinesis. Even though we can affect reality with our mind, we may not always be successful in influencing events to turn out the way we intend them to. Nothing is guaranteed from a moment to moment basis although certain events may be guaranteed in their finality. Each time we seek to do intention-manifestation or magical work, we are working with probable outcomes, and the desire one may or may not happen as we wish. We only have to do our best in setting our intent and sending the right energies to create.
Man often makes the mistake of becoming too sure of himself when he has achieved a streak of success and feels like he is finally in control of his world. The truth is that control is an illusion, and we can only direct what we wish to happen and let go of the process. The moment we feel we have finally attained true control, that is when our life seems to turn topsy turvy to shift everything out of balance once again. According to the principle of rhythm, nothing is fixed and everything is constantly in fluctuation. What we can do is to call upon the divine power in everything we do and never ever think that things are finally stable in the way they are going. Things may be good for some time and then suddenly go the other way, even when we are deliberate creators of our reality. The difference is that we seek to direct things to go in our way more often than not. But this world is still chaotic and chaos will always enter into our lives from time to time. But if good things can turn bad, bad things can turn good.
Sometimes prayers produce results. Sometimes they do not. Nothing is infallible. Death is inevitable. What we do with our lives is a matter of as much choice as we can muster, given the limitations of genetics, circumstance, and happenstance. But what matters is that prayers and intent do work at times and as long as we use them, we have more power to create what we want than not using them. Keep using more of that which might work than not at all. Most people know that skill or giftedness enters into magical successes, that timing is important, that traditional natural ingredients are preferred, and that personal will and an outpouring of spiritual energy are crucial. But even when everything is done with the strongest of intentions and best of timing and authentic ingredients by a worker of great skill or giftedness, there is still no guarantee of success. It is wonderful when we have a string of successes, but sometimes things may not work for quite a while.
Even the greatest golfer sometimes loses. He sometimes loses extensively. No one says that golf is a game of random chance or that the greatest is a fraud just because he cannot win every game. It is the same with magic. Sometimes the environment works well in your favor and other times it doesn’t. This is according to the principle of rhythm. But the good news is things never stay negative for too long, and sometimes when you think something is supposed to turn out negative, it turns out good instead.
Learn to expect nothing more from magic than an improvement of your odds. You will sometimes score a startling win or an almost impossible success, but not always. Most people who work with magic on a regular basis think of it as an edge, not as a certain win. But an edge is all you need to make the difference between winning and losing. It is better to have an edge than none at all. To give up using something because it doesn’t work all the time is foolishness. Change tactics but do not stop all of it. Magick works by bending probabilities and coincidences in very subtle ways to slowly effect your environment and ultimately provide you with your desired results. If you’re doing a spell to get a new car you may suddenly get a raise and discover you can now afford car payments, or perhaps you may win some money in a lottery. Whenever you use magick to help achieve your desires, the universe decides the details of how to obtain it for you. Magic is the work of affecting probable outcomes with your mind.
We can alter probabilities with our mind to shift space time events. Although anything is possible, it doesn’t mean we can anyhow depend on magical thinking to get what we want. We still have to take the natural path of action and play according to the rules of the game.
It takes a very good reason to alter probabilities in a miraculous way. Every miracle that happens is because there was a very good reason involved. It does not take a lot of mental or spiritual effort. All it takes is a very good reason. The reason is usually because there was no other way out, there was a very great need, and the will of the divine was involved. If keep in mind the reason of things in every moment, we can know what we can do that will most likely work. We can do things effectively whether natural or supernatural, and not in vain by wishful thinking.

Everything has its foundation in simplicity because everything comes from the same source. To understand is to know what is underneath everything that stands. It is to get to the foundation upon which everything stands. Its to perceive from the highest level of all. Things become simpler when looking from a higher plane of view. Everything can be defined to the core. All things have their most simplified and concise state. Everything is unified and simplified. Simplified knowledge is the wisest kind of wisdom.
Whether something is complicated or simple depends on the level of awareness that the person perceiving it has. To the one who has better understanding, the complex is simple. The secret to understanding everything in a simple way is to get to the essence of things and see how they fit into the bigger picture of all things. It is to know the microcosm of a thing as well as the macrocosm. When you know the quantum level and also the meta level, you can know all levels in between easily and completely.
Nothing is complex, everything is simple. It all depends how it is organized. The complex is made simple through organization. The best structure is the structure that integrates and simplifies everything. It connects everything together and allows you to navigate all pathways from one thing to another in the most direct manner. It is the most ordered and clearest organization of things. All organization is organization of mind. When something is better organized, there is more effectiveness and efficiency.
The deeper your understanding, the simpler everything becomes to you. That is because you are getting to the essence of things. The deeper you go, the higher you ascend. What’s behind everything is also what’s above everything. To see from the highest and most fundamental place is to understand everything in life, the universe and destiny from the perspective of consciousness and reality creation. It is because consciousness is everything. It is consciousness alone that creates and directs all things.
All of reality exist within consciousness and reality is consciousness itself. Everything you learn is ultimately for the purpose of being able to create your reality better. When you take everything that you know and observe it from a perspective of reality creation, you will find what it really is about and how it all fits into the whole picture. There are only two worlds, the inner world and outer world and these two are really one world. You are consciousness and reality is a mirror for you to experience yourself.
The most simplified structure of knowledge for understanding all of reality is found in the seven hermetic principles by Hermes Trismegistus, who was the wisest being that ever walked the face of this earth. The seven hermetic principles explain all of reality in the most simplified and complete way. This knowledge is beyond human level which was taught to Hermes by the great dragon Poimandres. The seven hermetic principles begins with the most simple principle and increases in complexity from one to the next.
The first is the principle of mentalism. All is mind, the universe is mental. This principle explains everything as a simulation and that all other principles are rules that govern the simulation. It is the principle that unifies all other principles into itself. Everything is a dream and therefore anything is possible because there are no limits except the limits set by the dreamer of the dream. This principle explains reality as a consciousness program. There is no hardware because it is all changeable software.
In actuality, all is software, and hardware is a more condensed, fixed and deeper layer of software. Everything is but simulation within simulation. Layers upon layers of operating systems. Tools running tools. Constructs within constructs.
The second is the principle of correspondence. As above so below, as below so above. This principle explains that consciousness is divided into two worlds which are the inner and outer worlds. Reality is holographic, the part contains the whole and therefore truth is replicated in every place. The third is the principle of vibration. Everything is energy therefore you can understand everything in terms of frequencies and wave functions. Manipulating reality is all about manipulation of energy and changing its forms.
The forth is the principle of polarity. Everything is dual and one. All truth are half truths which when combined together form total truth. This principle allows you to see things from multiple perspectives and reconcile all paradoxes. The fifth is the principle of rhythm. This principle explains the flow of nature which enables you to work with the way things go and be on top of them. Everything is changing from one state into the opposite and back. There is an equal measure of good for every bad and vice versa.
The sixth is the principle of cause and effect. Everything is a cause or effect but the challenge is determining which it is and when it is so. It is to understand the complexity and simplicity of a self perpetuating cause and effect. The seventh is the principle of gender. Everything is either masculine or feminine but the relationship between the two can be more complex than anything else in the universe. This is how the principles move from the most simple to the most complex, from first to the last.
You can design an electronic circuit with 20 components each having a single function or you can design one with 5 components each having many functions. The efficient use of each component allows the whole circuit to be designed in a much more simplified manner. The universe is designed with the maximum efficiency possible, and so at the core it is extremely simple. To think consistently in this same format will require that your thinking to be flawless and requiring no additional thinking to compensate.
The height of cultivation always runs to simplicity. When one seeks the Tao, one unlearns something new everyday. It is not daily increase but daily decrease. It is not accumulation but elimination. Hack away the unessential. Only the core is necessary because all things attach themselves to the core. Things at the core lead to everything else. The core is the essence. When you have the essence, you can understand and generate all the forms because you are formless.
Simplicity is shortest path between two points. It is when we unify the two points so that we are able to be in both places simultaneously without having to move at all. It is by placing ourselves in the highest or the core level and allow the core to direct everything else naturally. The highest or core level of working with reality is consciousness and awareness. Resolve everything in a simplified way. All problems are problems of complexity. Problems exist when we are out of alignment with the divine flow of things. You’ve got to understand the complexity and yet make it simple for yourself. The simplest tools can work in the most complex situations. The simplest solutions can solve the most complex problems. Secrets can be found in the most basic places. Truths originate from the most basic foundations. Valuable information is all around you, it is often so obvious that it is overlooked. The truth is always simple. If it isn’t, then it’s being expressed in a complicated and complex manner. You simply have to simplify it.
