To those who think they can dictate how others experience the divine,
From a personal perspective – MY practice, magick and spirituality is my own. My research, dedication and ongoing development have led me to where I find myself today. I work with existing systems and yet it is tailored, modified and individualised to my own preferences. One hand in modern and the other in ancient practices is the path I tred. It is my own blend as I take what works and discard what doesn’t. My taste might not resonate with yours which is completely ok as YMMV.
With that said, I own my own path and the power I yield I do so for my personal development, therefore:
My spirituality is not made to placate you.
My practice is not created for your comfort.
My magick is not worked for your satisfaction.
So to those:
- Talking down to others is rude and shows your arrogance as you do not demand an audience.
- Mansplaining makes you look like a domineering person afraid of individual self empowerment.
- Exhibiting belittling behaviour is unwarranted as is the obedience of another. You are owed nothing except common courtesy and respect which you should have the decency to show yourself.
- Dictating your point of view which is not accepted blindly – frustrates you, which in some cases you turn into lashed out anger which makes you look controlling and lacking confidence.
So to those who struggle with people who tell you how to be and how to practice – simply give them no attention, pay them no mind, don’t give in to their tendencies to be antagonistic towards you because simply put – they are not worth the energy and time.
Perhaps they are envious of your ways otherwise they wouldn’t chose to be so focused towards what you are doing and instead put that vigour towards their own workings (instead of trying to lord over yours).
Remember – NO ONE can control you, this is YOUR path! What you owe is to yourself and to your God/s. Do your thing and don’t apologise for it.
