Wizard’s 11th and Final Rule

by on Jul.09, 2012, under Uncategorized

Wizard’s 11th and Final Rule: The Unwritten rule which must be experienced before true understanding. Everything exists within us

This, as always, makes a lot of sense to me and is very true.

Everything we experience is within us. The events themselves may be external, but how we process them, our emotions, good, baf and neutral are internal to us. It is only the stimuli that is outside our bodies, the rest resides in our hearts, minds and souls.
Before we can realize this fact, we need to experience things.

It is through our experiences that we learn, about ourselves, the world, others and everything. What we learn is again internal, and therefore exists within us. Ultimately, we have full control over ourselves. Sometimes this is very hard, but we can get there, but only when we do not give up. Always deserve victory(wizard’s 8th rule) and fight for yourself. There are some battles you need to fight alone in life. The strength to win them is within each of us.

Wizard’s Third & Sixth Rules

by on Jul.09, 2012, under Uncategorized

Wizard’s Third Rule
Chapter 43, Page #360 US Hard Cover
“Passion rules reason.”

Wizard’s Sixth Rule
Chapter 41, Page #319 US Hard Cover
“The most important rule there is, the Wizard’s Sixth Rule: the only sovereign you can allow to rule you is reason.”

Well these two go together. First, we are saying that passion rules reason, then we say that we can only let reason rule us. What it boils down to is that often our passions our emotions take control of us, but that in the end we have to resist that and think clearly and make decision based on logic and reason. This is especially true for the most important decisions in our lives. When we make decisions based on emotions and feelings, we a lot of times we make poor choices.

There are of course times we can get away with and maybe even should make decisions based on our feelings, but they are few and far between at best. Decisions and actions made and taken because of passions so often cause hurt and heartache. When we are talking about things done during anger the pain is instant. One or both parties suffer from the pure rage, things are said and done that are later regretted, and once something is said it can never be unsaid. It can never be unheard. Those words haunt us for a long time, they can haunt us the rest of our lives. Every time we hear those words in our hearts it reopens the wound. When we make decisions based on intense positive feelings and only based on them, we risk hurt when the feelings come back to a more baseline state.

This does not mean we should ignore our feelings, just that we need to be mindful of them and think things through to make sure we aren’t making decisions just on passion. Passion is a great thing, but it can also be a very dangerous thing. At times it is very hard for a person to be mindful of their feelings. There are times when our mind works against us, when we can’t see past our emotions because our minds tell us something that isn’t real is real, or they tell us that something that may be real is a lot more intense that it is in reality.

We can so often be our own worst enemies. It can be very hard to be mindful of our feelings, but it is something we need to do.

Talga Vassternich – Deserve Victory

by on Jul.09, 2012, under Thoughts

Wizard’s Eighth Rule
Chapter 61 Page # 626 US Hard Cover
“Talga Vassternich. Deserve Victory.”

OK, this is something I need to remember for myself. I need to remember that I do deserve victory in every aspect of my life. I need to remember that not everything that goes wrong is my fault and that just because something falls apart it does not mean that it is my failure and that others can fail too. It does not mean that I am never at fault, just that I am not ALWAYS at fault.

I need to remember that I am just as deserving of happiness and of being loved as anyone else. It really is funny, I often remind everyone else of these things. I try to show them that they deserve these things and that their mistakes do not make them failures and that it does not mean they are not worthy. I try to help them realize their own self-worth in one or more areas of their life when they lack it. I try to help them realize how much they have to offer others; however, when it comes to me, I deny the validity of these things and see myself as unworthy. How can I expect anyone else to believe these things if I don’t show them that I believe them myself? Does it no take away from my message,  if I do not live them?

“What Archangel are You” Quiz

by on Jul.09, 2012, under Reflections, Thoughts

I took this back in November 2008.

I like to take some of these “silly” quizzes you find online. This one is which Archangel are you? After answering the questions this is what mine came back as:

You are Michael, Archangel of the South. You are the only angel identified as an archangel in the New Testament Bible, the strong and brave leader of all other archangels. In the Christian faith, you are best known for wielding a sword and conquering the serpent during the battle in Heaven (Revelation 12:7-12); in the Jewish faith, you are best known as the patron of Israel. Courageous, authoritative, and fearless, you are passionate about protecting others and helping them overcome temptation. Those who seek constant vigilance and encouragement to follow laws look to you as their patron. You share an archangel feast day with Gabriel and Raphael on September 29.
