I’ll use divination tools and skills constantly, and I have a few different divinatory systems that I can switch between depending on the conditions, the situation, and the client. Tarot provides a very linear and organized view, as well as alarmingly accurate predictions into the future. Congo Bones show me the energy behind the situation, the spirits involved, and the major events that will occur. Runes tap into the natural core of the situation, revealing the 9 aspects of the client’s life, and how those have led to the current state as well as how they can continue to act as a guide going forward.
But prophecy is just the first power of divination, and really is the most obvious application, and the easiest to master.
The second power of divination is the ability to view the situation from the specific subjective perspective of the person most invested in it and effected by it.
All transcendental pathworkings center around achieving perfect nonattachment. Experience, enjoy, embrace, and take pleasure in all that physical existence has to offer. The hidden trap of indulgence, though, is attachment. The line that we continuously find ourselves crossing is when we go from enjoying and experiencing something, and instead begin to identify ourselves by it.
This is the fundamental difference between a person who might smoke a cigarette or cigar, and a person who is “A Smoker.” Or, someone who finds excitement in some sort of thrilling, potentially risky behavior, versus one who is “A Thrill Seeker” or “A Risk Taker.”
Middle Path Magicians must keep a vigilant eye on how they choose to identify themselves, knowing that any identification of who or what they are is a limitation and a self-imposed boundary of possibility.
Regardless of our highest aspirations, perfect nonattachment is a goal that we are certain to always be working towards.
Since our perceptions and beliefs make up the foundation of our realities, when we are trying to find solutions, investigating the circumstances is useless. The Divinator must look beyond the situation as it has manifested, and instead scry deeper into the perceptions and beliefs of those most attached to the situation.
In so doing, the Magician finds the 3 Revelations capable of empowering the individual.
1. The beliefs or perceptions that have manifested the current situation by seeding its creation on the subtle planes.
2. What actions or inactions have further anchored the undesirable events in physical reality.
3. The things that need to be done to resolve the situation or to stimulate the desired change.
These revelations seem obvious and simplistic because they are! In fact, despite the form of divination that is used, these 3 pieces of information do not descend from the realms of omniscience, nor are they found in some part of the Halls of Akashic Records. Instead, they are extracted from the attached and often bewildered minds of the clients themselves.
What this means is that ultimately each of us knows exactly what has brought us to the current crisis, and we know what we have done and are probably still doing to maintain the undesirable circumstance.
Once the Magician has extracted this information from and has communicated it to his client – or himself – the obviousness of the whole thing is profound.
But, even when the cause of all of our problems is named and shown to us, and even when effective and achievable solutions are all known and possible, people are often bound by their attachment to the degree of refusing to take the actions that they know they should take, which would have the effect that they want to have.
Most people would rather remain in an existence that makes them miserable if the only alternative is taking control of life by simply doing what needs to be done. This would mean that they themselves are indeed their own gods.
Unfortunately, most of the time we find ourselves to be our own worst enemy.
