Ajahn Brahm, a great (humble, very funny, very magical) Thai Buddhist monk and teacher gives this talk on how to cope with stress. I offer it here because it has done a lot for me personally. I also like to post his videos in order to make more people aware of him because his is a very worthwhile voice in a troubled world.
As a novice monk in Thailand, Ajahn Brahm always got sleepy during meditation. He felt hopeless about himself until one day he realized that it was not his fault. Ajahn Brahms teaches us to not blame ourselves or others because difficulties are great opportunities to learn.
The ending is corny and I don’t get the use of the Reiki symbols (I can make up a reason for their use in a particular scene of the movie, but that would just be me reading into it). Otherwise, I have never seen a more realistic film about a complex magical ritual. Amazing, actually.
I’m been enjoying Madame Pamita’s insights and comments for a long time. She’s great.
I like to recommend magical colleagues who I think are particularly talented, smart, and / or skilled. I am approached by more clients than I can take. And so, rather than being competitive (a negative characteristic of many public occultists, especially conjure workers), I try to serve the Art by bringing people together.
There really isn’t my world or your world; there’s simply the process taking place in which we are both expressions.
