I found some really interesting text sadly without author or point to the 2nd part of it, but i will try to find it and in the meantime i will post excerpts from this text, because it’s 14 pages long.
Everything a teacher puts his apprentice through – each of the things he shows him is only a device to convince him that there’s more to us than meets the eye. We don’t need anyone to teach us sorcery – because there is really nothing to learn. What we need is a teacher to convince us that there is incalculable power at our fingertips.
What a strange paradox! Every warrior on the path of knowledge thinks – at one time or another – that he’s learning sorcery – but all he’s doing is allowing himself to be convinced of the power hidden in his being – and that he can reach it. We begin then to see – that is – to perceive – something else; not as imagination – but as real and concrete. And then we begin to know without having to use words. And what any of us does with that increased perception – with that silent knowledge – depends on our own temperament.
In the universe there is an unmeasurable – indescribable force which sorcerers call intent. Absolutely everything that exists in the entire cosmos is attached to intent by a connecting link. Sorcerers – warriors – are concerned with discussing – understanding – and employing that connecting link. They are especially concerned with cleaning it of the numbing effects brought about by the ordinary concerns of their everyday lives. Sorcery at this level could be defined as the procedure of cleaning one’s connecting link to intent.
The mastery of intent is the riddle of the spirit – or the paradox of the abstract – sorcerers’ thoughts and actions projected beyond our human condition.
