The Mr Black Experiment

Lately, I’ve been focusing on what makes me happy, and how I can translate that into the real world in a meaningful and practical way – my interest are so far and wide that it’s hard to find the things that tie them together, and the transmute them into some sort of effective way.

I mean, I got mad street cred for being a Bardonian follower but how can I translate that into the real world.

I think a couple of post ago, I ended up writing about how with my certain set of skills, I would be good at certain things – this phase is essentially an extension of that.

Of course, I’ve been delving into the tome of Ferriss; reading, watching as much material as my brain will allow me. I’ve been slowly picking up tips from him and integrating in my life.

For example, I’ve doubled/tripled my reading speed w/ just a couple of tips from one of his books. I actually have to slow it down because my brain is at near limit trying to process the information – it’s not use to processing that much information at once, I need to slowly let is accustom that this is the new way now and it better adapt.

I could feel my brain overheat, lol.

Anyways, I’ve been brainstorming on a couple of projects I’d like to get into. It really feels like, the first time in my life that I can accomplish anything w/ the tools I’ve acquired now – both mundane and magickal wise.

Work smart, not hard. 😀

Hello 2017, An Introduction

The 2016 Office Xmas Palm Reader Prophecy has foretold that 2017 is supposed to be the year where I own it and that 2016 could be counted as a rebuild/transitional phase of sorts.

Now, I don’t put much on divination – especially towards far scoping kind of readings, I prefer to put my money on the short scoping kinds; the ones within a month or so outcome, not year(s) later.

Even if I were to bank on that reading, it’s just not in my nature to leave things to chance – what’s the point of being a sorcerer then?

So with that said, time to stack the variables towards my favour. I have a couple of goals I am focusing on this year, trying to simplify it because that’s one of my main issues, too many projects going on. I really want to focus on music, and the quality of my life.

Simplifying my repertoire of magickal techniques as well so that I have the flexibility to activate them on the fly. This also serves to sharpen the tools I already employ, start mastering instead of dabbling on new things. I am still open to new ideas in regards to the macro side of magick (theurgy, HGA, astral planes, etc) but on the micro side of things, I will just be employing certain techniques I already use and try to sharpen them and think of ways of employing them in different ways that has not been done before.

KISS as they would say.

So what does this all mean? I feel like basically, magick will be taking a different role in my life. If this was a basketball team; instead of being a starter, magick would become the 6th man of the team in my life.

Unfortunately, I can’t let go of my “mundane” hopes and dreams. In a different scenario, I could see myself letting go of everything and becoming a vagabond rebel sorcerer but that is not the cards I’ve been dealt w/ at the moment. I can only work with the hand I got, try to pull out a winning deal, and hope for the best.
