The Other Side is not a place. It might help you to realise that. When you get there, you will know. When you get there all things – and I mean everything – becomes patently clear. That is what encourages me every single day and it was one of the things that blew my mind some many years ago when I first discovered it. When those you care for, those you love, reach the other side you will know about that too, and from personal experience I will assert that that knowing is an intense feeling of contentment. There is nothing on this planet that could possibly be as soothing as that knowing, that tangible knowledge. One luxury of having that particular kind of knowledge is that it makes an indelible impression that does not ‘last’ – because Love never dies, it simply cannot. Another luxury is that that resonant knowing does not need proving. It is irrefutable proof in itself.
The other side is a place many aspire to reaching – and take notice of the absence of capitals, please. Naturally The Other Side is not the other side. It is this side. If you do not know which side this side is in relation to the side for which you think you are rooting and the side you are currently backing, then you are in a tricky position of which I am not at all envious and I cannot help you. Even if I could, I would wonder whether to bother because I abhor tricks, trickery. I work in magic, Magick. And take notice of the capitals, please.
In thirteen – I AM the go-between. That you cannot – and will not – ever change. Once you accept your fate – which I took the liberty of releasing along with mine after I scalped my reflection in that damned blood pool you hoped I would neither locate nor find myself in – you might find that your spirit will be invited into your body. Until then, it won’t. When your own body rejects you you have a difficult road ahead of you. Unless you forge your own path. Whether or not you can make a path for yourself depends on whether or not you inherited the natural ability to defy your own DNA. Clearly a lot of people did not inherit any such ability. In fact, using hindsight and the rather remarkable genie I bought for a couple of bucks at a garage sale held in my back yard at the onset of the Y2K it would seem that most people inherited no abilities at all. Oh well. So life goes. You cannot ‘manufacture’ that natural ability. So. Onwards and upwards to where the air is clear and the heart-song – to which we of Love all march – is strong …
When you take the time to understand that there is a difference between magic and magick you will be able to appreciate the wonder of both. You will find that if you invest time in appreciating the magick that is happening all around you all day, every day, you will become properly alive inside yourself. This is not a scary prospect – it is like a caterpillar in a chrysalis. You will become the best you are meant to be. Do not ever forget that this takes due process. Becoming your best is a long journey. If you have stamina you should undertake this journey. If you do not – that is a shame. You are missing out.
You have to show gratitude for Nature’s magick in order that she allows its properties to transform you, your life. You must appreciate her mastery. She is very, very adept. Treasure that there is no other that will understand you like she does. She is you. From this you can draw comfort. You have no need to hide from her your ‘sins’. She understands the nature of man. And she understands very well the nature of woman, too. She is familiar with wiles and manipulation. She does not employ either method in her operation but she accepts that others, do. That there is yet conflict between the sexes about who is Alpha what is not helpful. There is always an Alpha female and an Alpha male in Nature’s equation. Always. The energy of both. Bringing together – in harmony – those energies, is where she is headed. That her work along the way is changing the lay of the land is a reality we should really learn to accept without raising too much objection. Her motivation is pure. She is already everywhere that matters.
Magic itself is black, white. Coloured. Musical. Cinematic. There is no grey area where magic is concerned. Magic works. Do not for one moment doubt that fact. Magic trades secrets in deep, dark belief. Trust. You know how a strong belief can save your life? Or kill you? Easy. If you are interested in the at-work aspects of magic and its happenings you must visit voodoo and you must visit ritual, you must hear your heartbeat and you must suspend disbelief for a period long enough to give your inner cynic a chance to keep quiet and learn. The cynic is entitled to its opinion but it is not invited to share it. When you next see love in action – and this is not hard to see if you know where to look – know that magick is happening, right there in front of your eyes. Magick comes to us each when we are primed, open, and ready to receive it.
Open. Receive it.
