|Alone, but not lonely|
This is not a moral lecture, this is a code I wish to live by. The thought of ANYONE who wishes to control ANYONE just turns me off completely! I look at it this way, I HATE when anyone attempts to control me, through whatever channel, and I live by the code " Do unto Others only as you would have done unto you." As biblical as that sounds....I can't fathom living with myself intentionally hurting anyone physically, emotionally, mentally or spiritually, and I try to live by that. Except in the case of self-defense of course, or defending loved ones.
I try to imagine this world. We are spirits in meat sacks, and I hope dearly that I shall be re-incarnated into another meat sack knowing what I know here now. Because I really hope that I can be of some further use to the humans on this planet over and over again. I would prefer to help than move on.
These days though, I prefer to be alone. I don't know HOW I am going to help by living alone. But the focus and direction of most people just gives me pause.
Please note that I am not professing to be enlightened, or better than them. They like to live in blue, I like to live in green. I do not know or care which one is the "righter" colour, I just know that my thoughts about the issue of non controlling, even through magick, even in the afterlife are what I think is right. I cannot imagine coloring my spirit with chains of individuals tied to my existence, who are affected by my wishes. I am certain that creating that link, will mean that in some way, their wishes would affect my life as well.
Use your power to grow yourself and strengthen yourself. A strong you does not need to control anyone. Strengthen your will, make your inner self stronger. Its not about power over people, but about Self-Mastery.
