Here is something you should know about them….
They will not, read your mind
So to speak
Whether or not they could, it is considered a violation….
So if you become noticed, you will notice
They will, ask you things….
Don’t say what you think your culture would approve of, or your priest, your party, your guru, or even your favorite writer….
Or say any of these things
Just —- tell the truth, your truth….
Everything, starts there, everything….
Remember this —- you do encounter them, even before you can see it, so do not wait to start
They can work with nothing less. Even if your heart is hard, and your truth is distorted, angry, & hurt—- It is a beginning, to acknowledge this.
Because most of all, most of all, the truth of the human heart is longing, if you have nothing else to say, or you become afraid —-
Show them this….
But we always consider others, if telling your truth would cause harm or suffering, be silent. Or if possible you may answer in a way that conveys truth while concealing it to those who would misuse it, this is craft. They will understand this, this is also truth —- perhaps the truest of all….
Never put yourself above another, you are not….
No one, is….
The first task of any mage, is to be able to discern the truth within ourselves; without it, we are truly lost….
So you see, they want to help you
They want to widen your perception
They want you to find that peace & joy & wonder for life inside we all remember
They want you to see —- you truly exist, always
But we have to work with them
They can do many things for you, for us
They show us the way…..
Of truth & love & peoplehood
To be brave —- is only to be honest
To be merry —- is only to have a clear conscience
To be selfless —- is only to have seen the truth, and so see you lose nothing in so doing, and yet gain the love of all….
Like I’ve said before they don’t test us, but they do check, yes they do….
We’ll talk about that later…..
