I notice that some of the deeper spiritual post that are entered into Embracing Spirituality, are not paid much attention, no comments what so ever, and it is much disconcerting to me that no one has not even a thought even a question. Let us not shy away from things that the mind do not comprehend or cannot relate to. We all have questions that needs to be answered, and even if you visit the site for the fun-loving energy, the camaraderie of it all, I Obara Meji, do want to pause and think, just for a moment, and ask your self what have I learnt today?. Because Knowledge Is Power, and also Knowledge is a legacy, and inheritance worth more than its weight in Gold. Take away from each post what you will, because you might not all the times agree with the writer, but the magnificent thing about that is then you have the opportunity to say what you feel, to ask questions, or to challenge. Obara Meji welcomes your mind. That is my attraction to human beings, THE MIND!!!!, I love diversity in thoughts and opinions, because that is the key for learning. Someone that society call mad WILL have something to say, but if you find the time to sift through his ramblings you will often times find wisdom. Do not look down on anyone because you believe his or her thoughts are simple, because we all learn from each other, and even a child can lead the way!!. Read with understandingBy and through the law of realization, inspiration is awakened and established. Again by and through the exercise of the powers of auto-suggestion, self thought, the supreme realization of self, and the innermost desire of life are reached and manifested, withholding all doubt, which opens up to us and connects us with the inward or latent supreme possibilities of soul.
The writer will hereby inform the student that the desires are which have prompted you in the pursuit of the knowledge of OCCULTISM AND THE INVISIBLE FORCES OF NATURE, so you will reap for ‘LIKE ALWAYS ATTRACT LIKE.’ If you desire the knowledge to secure revenge, it is but proper that I should warn you that thou wilt, in any of the experiments contained in these treaties, draw or attract thyself a revengeful demon, or an accursed infernal furious evil spirit serving in the principal and law of wrath; if for worldly riches and aggrandizement, then shalt thou have an earthiel or fiery spirit, which will delude thee with the riches of the central world; if for same or the blaze of glory, they will be allotted thee, who will gratify thy inordinate desire of vain glory; for all these offices are there evil spirits who have been allotted, and they are ever eager to merge their evil will and spirit with yours; they will through the same law attract thy desires and purposes according to the extent as thy desires are, and from principles they precede, so shall thou be answered; but if thou desireth the knowledge but for the honor and glory of thy soul (GOD) and to help thy fellow men, and, in great humility, fill thy heart with love of all mankind, thou shalt then attract a good spirit which will grant thy desires, and also assist you to overcome enemies.
Bear this advice, Seek for and desire that which is good; avoid attracting ALL EVIL, either in thought, desire, word, or action; and then shalt thou reap the rewards of the soul which desires to develop the inner or spirit sight. Remember, there are two ways magically set before these; choose which thou wilt, thou shalt be sure of thy reward. Remember, believe in yourself and you will succeed (taken from the mystic textbook by deLaurence).
I felt it was important to share this with you because many people who are awakening to their spirituality and some who may want to delve deeper into occultism because of knowledge that they will be acquiring and the thought of vested power some will be attracted to the darker side of the moon. What I mean here is that there are those who will be quick to summon (if they can) evil entities for revenge or just because they can, but as with everything in life, there are consequences to bear; we must all walk as children of light. Regardless of how many things we learn during our spiritual journey and in this incarnation, evil is never the way. Evil will only withhold your spiritual evolution therefore trapping you onto the wheel of existence never making it possible for your spirit/soul to achieve what the Buddhist call nirvana (which is true freedom; freedom from coming back to this world). It would be foolish of me Obara Meji to believe that I can convince those who are determined to walk on the left to change, but I fully know that the old saying ‘The pen is mightier than the sword’ holds true and there may be one who will see this and revise his thinking. To fear the Lord is the beginning of wisdom and vengeance belongs to God alone. Take heed my brothers and sisters and try to do the right thing at all times, keep a clean hand and the purest of hearts, soil not your thoughts with bad thinking, jealousy, revenge, wickedness, betrayal, violence, trickery etc. let it never once be named among you.
We will revisit this topic at length another time, but for now this is my message to you; please accept it.
