techniques which will be given later in this course. It will be explained later, at the proper time, but I want you to get some familiarity with it now so that it will not be something startlingly new when its importance becomes evident. Study it with your Tarot cards in hand and compare with what has already been given.
Before moving on to the next part of this lesson, there is another thing I wish to clarify for you. You may be thinking that I will be adding on to the basic daily rituals until you have no time to do anything else! This is not the case. There is only one more basic ritual which you must learn. Do not give up. Do not omit any part of the rituals. Do not skip a day unless it is impossible not to. Everything that you are now doing is White Magick, moving you toward unity with Divinity. It is also your preparation for doing Grey Magick. If you memorize the rituals they should not take longer than 15 minutes. And, in a short time, this course will give you a method for doing the rituals anytime, anywhere via a special mental process. It will take even less time to perform the rituals, and it will give you more personal power.
Sometimes in my classes I have had students tell me that although they carry out the rituals with extreme care, they feel nothing within themselves (or without), as a result. They want to know why they are failing and what they are doing wrong.
The answer is that there is nothing wrong and that they are not failing. The energies involved in the rituals are continually at work throughout the physical and spiritual universe. The energy goes around and through all things, both physical and non-physical. It is everywhere. If you did not feel the motion of the energy before, there is no guarantee that you will sense it after you have begun practicing the rituals. Magick permits us to utilize these forces in ways non-magicians cannot comprehend.
It is not necessary that you have any weird experiences or unusual sensations as a result of the practice of the rituals in this course. If the rituals are done properly, the desired results must inevitably occur. If you throw a ball in the air, it must come down. This is the law of gravity. If you do the rituals properly, you must get the desired results. This is the cosmic law of magick.
Sometimes, unusual experiences or sensations can actually get in the way of psychic development. Some people get side-tracked into trying to produce psychic pehnomena. They end up spending time trying to do relatively useless things such as levitation or being able to see what symbol is on the back of a card. While spending time bending spoons (and what good is a bent spoon, anyway?), they ignore their magickal work and retard their magickal and spiritual progress.
So, some of you may feel or sense the energies that have been described in this and in previous lessons. Some of you, for a while, may not. But, it doesn't matter! If you do the rituals properly the magick will work. Know that you can do the rituals successfully. Dare to do them, then do them! Then be silent about your achievements.
